Harkaway is a wonderfully restored original cottage located in Kingsley St, just a few minutes walk to Byron's main street and less than a 10 min stroll up to Byron's spectacular Main Beach. This house oozes all the character and charm of an original cottage whilst having all the modern conveniences you could wish for on your holiday away.

This is your perfect family holiday house. There are three comfortable bedrooms, one Queen, one Double and the third with two sets of bunks enabling you to sleep 8 comfortably. There is two bathrooms with a bath in one of them. There are polished timber floorboards throughout and ceiling fans in all rooms plus reverse cycle air conditioning in the main living area as well as the kitchen meaning you will never be too hot or cold.

Relax in the lounge in comfort and watch one of the many complimentary DVD's available on the large 42" Plasma TV, or retreat to the master bedroom where there is a second 32" TEAC LCD with inbuilt DVD. There is also a Playstation with games and a great selection of board games to entertain both the kids and adults alike. There is also complimentary Wireless Internet for your enjoyment.

The backyard is spacious and the gas BBQ makes for a perfect alternate cooking option for those balmy sub tropical Byron evenings. The kitchen has been designed with the home chef in mind with well stocked cupboards for cooking up a storm. Don't feel like cooking? Not to worry, an array of wonderful cafes and restaurants are just a 100 metres away. This is the house where you can leave the car at home!

Want to just kick back after a morning at the beach? Separating the dining room from the kitchen is great deck space with sun lounges for you to laze back on with your favourite book and let the afternoon drift away. Alternatively, try the fantastic daybed on the front porch.....your choice.

Perfect little hideaway    05-03-2016
This was a fab little place, in a great location. Wouldn't matter if you didn't have a car as the township/supermarket etc is all very handy. Really nicely fitted out and with plenty of everything/amenities. The property managers have also been really on the ball and helpful. Hard to fault!
Dom and Byron    05-27-2015
Harkaway is a fabulous one stop shop for great holiday accommodation in the heart of Byron Bay.
We wanted for absolutely nothing, as the property was so well provisioned and appointed...right down to some toys for our youngest to amuse herself with, and our oldest actually wanted to sleep in her own bed too because the bunkroom was so cool!
For the adults, its a fabulous home to enjoy an intimate BBQ or just curl up on one of the many sofas, day beds or sun lounges to read a book from the owners library or watch a DVD, which there were plenty to choose from too. If by chance we had forgotten anything, a short walk to the shops and it was all sorted.
we absolutely recommend this fabulous holiday home and thank the owners for sharing their home with us, and thank the great team at Byron Bay Holiday Rentals for insisting we take a look at Harkaway!

Absolutely Magificent    08-20-2014
Hi Scott, Angela and crew,

Just a quick note to let you know that our stay at Harkaway was absolutely magnificent.

We felt so relaxed and truly relished our time at the house, often preferring to stay in rather than go out!

Thank you very much, and would you please also thank the owners for us as well.

There is no question that we will be back!
Holiday House    02-20-2014
Harkaway is a great property for families to stay in. Its location is ideal, you are only a short distance to the center of Byron and a short walk to the beach. The house has air conditioning and fans in all rooms.
We will definitely hire this house again!
Everything.....and more    10-16-2013
This charming cottage, close to the shops and an easy walk to the beach, has ample room for a family or group that want to spread out, relax, rest or entertain. The welcoming verandah leads into a beautifully decorated house with endless thoughtful touches for example-sand toys/beach umbrella and portable chairs!. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and there are inside and outdoor eating areas. The garden has a tropical theme that adds to the ambiance. Harkaway was exactly what we needed while in town for our daughters wedding weekend. A joy.
Delightful home    03-21-2013
Harkaway was just delightful to stay in. We had the family very comfortably accommodated and there were places for everyone to escape and have some time alone if they wished. Beautifully restored and exceptionally equipped. We will come back!

Home away from Home    02-26-2013
A peaceful retreat close to Byron Bay town centre within easy walk of beach. Well equipped kitchen and entertainment centres with all modern conveniences. Great atmosphere combining the ambience of an original Byron cottage with many contemporary features. We thoroughly enjoyed our three week stay enjoying sightseeing and many an excellent cafe and restaurant.
Highly recommended!    07-28-2011
Gorgeous, comfortable and welcoming home with everything you could need and close to everywhere you want to be. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Fantastic!    11-16-2010
More like a home than a holiday house, we loved it.
Attention to detail, quality appliances and utensils, up to date technology made it feel like home.

Loads of chill out areas to take a quiet nap in the sun or shade and plenty of privacy. Made a welcome change from busy, crowded Sydney :)

We'll be back.
