Byron Hills Hinterland Retreat Reviews

My husband and I spent the QLD long weekend with two other couples at Shannon’s home. It was just beautiful. We were very impressed with the property. It exceeded our expectations. There has obviously been a lot of love put into the home and surrounding gardens. Shannon was easy to communicate with and the whole process from booking to arriving was straight forward. We would love to bring our family back for a weekend during summer as the pool area is such an inviting space.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautifully presented property. We were 3 mature couples who all enjoyed every aspect of our accommodation. From the moment we arrived we felt we were visiting a friend’s place as it was so warm, comfortable and inviting. The house has several entertaining areas to enjoy both indoors and out, in particular the outdoors patios which offer idyllic settings for all types of occasions and weather. The house is more than adequately equipped with everything you will need and more. The owner, Shannon, is very engaging and helpful in preparing you for your stay and only a phone call away should you have any queries … I always felt I was dealing with a friend! The property is situated in the Hinterland and easily accessible to Byron Bay, Bangalow, Newrybar and the surrounding areas so a great location to get out and about to explore this beautiful part of northern NSW. We loved every minute of our stay here and would highly recommend this property for that home away from home vacation.

Thankyou for a delightful stay. We enjoyed the pizza oven with the family on Saturday night. A beautiful property!

Peaceful rural retreat, close to Bangalow
Our family of 6 adults enjoyed our long week-end at Byron Hills and the rain added to the beauty of the landscape, seen from the bedrooms and the garden which is the star of the show with a great old fig tree at the back of the house. Every effort has been made to provide comfort in this home, and its position was perfect for the places we visited over the weekend. We would love a return visit with better weather to take full advantage of the many entertaining spaces overlooking the views and the garden.

Byron Hills was exactly how it appeared on the website… It was so welcoming and inviting and we felt like we were staying at a friends house. It was very well equipped for bbq’s and dinner’s etc and the pantry was stocked full of items that you really don’t want to go out and buy for that one time use. We had our whole family come for a reunion and made good use of the Pizza oven and Pergola area. I’ll be copying the design in my next house!

It was so close to Byron and Bangalow, which was handy seeing we were there for a wedding, but outside of that, we really just wanted to be hanging at the house. We will definitely be going back…. Shannon (owner) was lovely to deal with and made the booking a nice and simple process too. Cant wait to see the pool next time!

Thank you for making our holiday such a memorable one! Byron Hills was such a beautiful house to spend our time in Byron Bay. We considered staying in town, and are glad that we decided on a Hinterland property instead. It was so close to Byron when we felt like going in to the beach, but the peace and quiet and Hinterland views were what we really wanted to experience. Its really the best of both worlds! We would have loved to stay longer and will definitely return on our next visit to Australia! Thanks again Shannon!
