“A Summer Cottage” is a delight - a freshly renovated, light filled oasis. Set on a quiet country style lane,  just an easy  5 minute flat stroll to main street, Clarkes Beach, the lighthouse walking tracks, and Tallows beach. The Top Shop is just around the corner for a coffee & a paper. Park the car and leave it - you can walk everywhere.

The house is comfortable, and modern, while retaining all the soul of an old style Byron home. There are 3 spacious bedrooms, the master has a built in robe and en suite. 

The living area is away from the bedrooms so you can put the kids to bed an enjoy a movie on the lounge. 

A solar heated pool (**pls note in winter the solar only increases the pool temp by a few degrees) is adjacent to the kitchen and the spacious covered deck is perfect for after beach swims. Why not just relax with a book on the outdoor arm chairs & BBQs.

There is a cubby & sand pit for the kids and is you can you might want to bring skate boards and bikes as the lane is very quiet. 

Accommodation consists of a Queen, a second king or two large singles, and a pair of singles, to sleep 6. The whole house is mozzie screened, and the lighting dimmable. The kitchen is brand new and well equipped - there is a nesspresso machine and several complimentory starter pods. There are a selection of books, magazines, games, and children's equipment for everyone's enjoyment.

The house faces north to catch the sun and the cooling breeze. It is protected from cold unwelcome winds by a hill to the south.

Perfect Location    03-22-2016
A Summer Cottage has the perfect location, set in a quiet lane way only five minutes walk from the beach and ten minutes walk from the town itself, which can be very busy so it's nice to be just outside of the holiday crowds. The place itself is fresh with modern styling, open plan living spaces and perfectly decked out for a beach holiday with everything you might need, including boogie boards, beach chairs, great plunge pool, nice yard and games and toys if you have kids and the weather is rainy. A great sized deck for lazy afternoons and mornings and a BBQ as well as an entertainers kitchen. We found lots of little extras were included so found we didn't need to bring half the things we did like beach towels, detergents, soaps, hairdryers etc. And there is a great little coffee shop only a couple of minutes walk up around the corner. It;s not the cheapest or the dearest place either. Everything was perfect and we will always stay here now in comparison to other rentals we've tried in Byron.

Loved this place! We came here after our wedding with my husband's parents (they were across from the UK for a few weeks) and we totally fell in love with A Summer Cottage - it's pretty much our dream house. From the heated pool to the amazing deck, the well appointed kitchen, the relaxing bedrooms and the fantastic lounge - we thought this house was one of the nicest places we've stayed in. It's also an easy walk to the beach and into town and just around the corner from one of the nicest cafes in town (top shop). We definitely recommend staying here!
Great place to stay    01-12-2016
Great place to stay for Byron Bay. Walking distance to the shops (15mins) and Clarkes Beach (10 mins). The positives were the pool - small, but perfect for cooling down; the huge verandah for sitting out reading or eating, even when it poured; coved parking; big fridge and freezer; the comfiest sofa in the sitting room; peaceful at night, although noisy dawn chorus from the birds! Negatives weren't many - perhaps the kitchen could have been better equipped for cooking, more plastic glasses for outside. Lovely restaurants within a 15-20 minute walk. Top shop great, though quite prices. Byron farmers market excellent - strongly recommend it for fruit, veg, meat, eggs and juices. Would definitely recommend, and would stay in this house again. Great to have a keyless property, so the teenagers could come and go without us getting stressed that they might lose a key or lock themselves out.

Such a great beach house in a superb location..... you could walk to wherever you needed to go! Loved being able to sit out on the deck and read a book and then go inside to have the afternoon snooze on the sofa. Awesome sofa by the way!!! There was so much space and we were please to see how clean, tidy and fresh it was when we arrived, including the pool! Loved our stay and will definately be back!
Excellent House    03-19-2014

A Summer Cottage    01-09-2014
This is a lovely place to stay. The location is good (just near the Top Shop!) and the house has a very Byron atmosphere. The home was the cleanest holiday home we have ever rented. We have stayed at other places in Byron that were newer, bigger and more expensive but we all preferred A Summer Cottage.

I recently spent 15 nights at A Summer Cottage with my wife and two children. The house is amazing and by far the best we have stayed in over the past 10 years. Its close to town without being to close and the house and set up deserves the 5 star rating. Angela from Byron Bay holiday rentals was an absolute pleasure to work with, and is now the first person I contact when visiting Byron Bay. Thanks for a great break. Tom

I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful holiday home during the Australia Day long weekend. It was stormy weather and as such it meant our visit was home based. I cannot think of a better place to have been during this crazy weather weekend.
The house most definitely is a home, inviting, warm, cosy and comfortable with ample space for us all not be feel on top of one another during our 'lock down' due to the weather. In fact the feeling of serenity within this home allowed us to forget the wind and rain frenzy outside as we watched the fish swim in the garden pond which is a feature in the home, linking the outside to the inside by glass.
My overall feeling about my visit here was one of peace and relaxation. The lounge pleasantly engulfing you as you take a seat, the outdoor entertaining space inviting with the lush tropical gardens around it. A family table so inviting for a shared meal and shared times.
I fully recommend this as a place to stay, I know I will be booking in again.
Amazing!    04-17-2013
This property was the ultimate holiday house and had everything we could have wanted plus more. Perfect location, pool, huge deck and even a great little cubby house for the kids. We will be back!!
Amazing!    04-04-2013
The photos don't do this house justice - it is even more beautiful in real life! The location is just perfect - close to everything yet so very quiet and peaceful. The house looks modest from the front yet is so spacious inside and has everything you could possible need. The backyard is surrounded by lush tropical gardens and has such a relaxed vibe to it. This house ticked all of our boxes and so much more - even our 10 month old loved it. We will definitely be back!
