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.
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!
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!
We will definitely hire this house again!
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.
