Cute studio nestled under Byron's famous lighthouse
Wake up to stunning ocean views from this Cape Byron holiday rental retreat and look for surfing dolphins and tell-tale spouts of passing whales right from the comfort of your bed! Wategos Retreats Studio offers cosy accommodation for two in an unforgettable position, tucked beneath Byron Lighthouse. The open-plan living space includes a kitchen recess, modern bathroom and ceiling fans which complement the sea breezes.
Enjoy breakfast on the balcony drinking in the exceptional ocean views, watching playful pods of dolphins and spotting the occasional whale spout. Take a walk around the headland or stroll just 300m to the quiet sandy cove known only to the locals. Swim, sunbathe and relax before freshening up and heading into downtown Byron. It’s an easy 3-minute drive or a 20-minute scenic stroll to the nearest shops, cafés and bars where lively nightlife and a choice of casual alfresco dining await.
Wategos Retreats consists of two adjacent properties - Wategos Retreats Studio and Wategos Retreats Apartment, making it a great place for two couples wishing to get away together but still have their own privacy.
Please note: a property 2 doors down from Wategos Retreats has commenced major demolition and rebuild works (Oct 2020) which will go into 2021 with a break during the Xmas/NYE period. Noise will vary during the week but will be absent over weekends and public holidays. We will work with builders to understand the scope of works and expected impact as much as possible. Please consider this when booking and feel free to discuss with our helpful team so we can make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Located on Byron Headland, mainland Australia’s easternmost point, Wategos Retreats Studio is tucked beneath the landmark Byron Lighthouse. It enjoys unsurpassed views and is a short 300m stroll from the quiet sandy beach below. This enviably located studio is close enough to the water to spot playful dolphins and passing pods of migrating whales as they frolic offshore.
The nearby Cape Byron Walking Track is a 3.7km walking/jogging trail around scenic Cape Byron Headland which is easy to access from your secluded Gold Coast holiday retreat. The loop trail is popular for whale watching and dolphin spotting and provides scenic lookout points (although you have the best private views from your Wategos Studio rental!)
The nearest shops, cafés and nightlife are just 3 minutes’ drive or a 20-minute stroll away in downtown Byron, which is 3.5km distance. A short drive into the Hinterland provides a delightful succession of historic villages, stores and taverns offering excellent dining and scenic walks into the rainforest.
