Hidden Aztec-inspired retreat in the heart of Byron Bay

Property reviewed by Lucy Cousins on Friday, May 5, 2017

Looking like it’s from the pages of a magazine, this retreat draws inspiration from the Aztec culture but mixes it with the calm serenity that comes from all-white interiors. This beautifully decorated villa is the perfect base for a first or return visit to Byron Bay.

Located only a short walk to shops and beaches, the major draw card of this one-bedroom property (apart from location and design!) is the private solar-heated, in-ground pool surrounded by white pebbles, tropical palms and desert cacti. Transport yourself to Central America as you while away the weekend by the pool or relax in the hanging pod chair overlooking the neighbouring greenery. If the afternoon sun becomes too much, simply pop downstairs to the outdoor shower, made private with bamboo screenings, then dry off on one of the sunloungers in the shade as you watch the palm trees sway in the breeze.

The light and airy open-plan living room features a giant welcoming couch and TV with Netflix, and the galley-style kitchen is fully equipped and well designed. For outdoor dining, the covered entertaining deck with natural timber decking is large and private, and catches the evening breeze, while the attic-feel bedroom offers a king bed covered in natural fibre sheets and blankets, and hanging mosquito netting.

If you manage to ever leave this cool oasis, two of the region’s best beaches are only a short walk away, or you could use the bicycles provided to make the journey even shorter. On your way, stop by the nearby coffee shops and grab some lunch to eat as you soak up the sun on the way.
