“What an oasis of calm & tranquility this place is. Love the garden, the birds, the wallabies and the frogs. Third visit to Byron and a bit chaotic because of schoolies week but enjoyed exploring Brunswick Heads, New Brighton farmer’s market, Mullumbimby farmer’s market (the best!) Bangalow and Newrybar (loved the Harvest Cafe there). Discovered the Balcony Bar for the best cocktails, the hole-in-the-wall taco place (Chihuahua) and great Vietnamese street food just near Woolworths. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous pad.” – John & Hetty, Wanaka, New Zealand, December 2018

“This is a little slice of paradise! Close enough to Byron for the beaches, restaurants and nightlife but far enough away for some peace and tranquility. It’s well worth a walk around the garden at night with a torch; we spotted something different every night. Some of the things we saw:

  • a possum with baby on its back
  • a long-nose potaroo
  • tawny frogmouth
  • green catbird
  • figbird
  • plenty of wallabies
  • an unknown snake!

Thank you!” – Clare, Linda (Manchester,UK), Stead & Harvey, Camden NSW, January 2019

“We have had such a wonderful holiday here. Fantastic food at Il Buco, Barrio, from the food markets on Thursday morning, surfing lessons, kayaking, White’s Beach, hanging out at The Pass, the full moon at the lighthouse – and lots of pure relaxation at The Lily Pad – we couldn’t recommend the experience more highly. Thank you!” – Lou, Douglas, Ella & Ruby, Sydney, January 2019

“We loved this accommodation, almost too much. We had planned to spend a lot more time in Byron and surrounding areas, but the property was so nice and peaceful we wanted to get back there all the time. Lovely place to read and relax. Also, the best kitchen I have ever experienced in a rental. everything you need, so a great place for a foodie to go to. We felt totally left at peace for the weekend.” – Dermot, Airbnb, April, 2016

“We stay in Lily Pad for 6 days. The house is so wonderful with enough space. The house is very well equiped nothing was missed. The garden and the surrounding is like paradise with your own rainforest and in the morning when we woke up we hear the birds singing an when we enjoy our first coffee on the veranda we saw a kangaroo in the garden. It was really a wonderful stay in Lily Pad….1 month Australia, and we fall in love with Lily Pad that we decided to come back a 2nd time. Everything is perfect, the house, the garden and the neighborhood. ” – Grit, Airbnb, October 2014

“My husband and I stayed at Lily Pad to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It’s a lovely house at a peaceful and beautiful location that exceeded our expectations. There are many things about the house we love, e.g. the comfort, the light filled rooms, the modern and fully equipped kitchen, wildlife around us and the wonderful expansive garden. We have booked accommodation many times both in Australia and overseas through airbnb. This is one of the best places we have stayed at. We were initially a little concerned about the distance to town and beaches but it’s in fact very close to everything. We would love to stay at Lily Pad again and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is looking for a holiday house for a special occasion or a relaxing break.” – Chen, Airbnb, October 2015

“Lily Pad at Byron Bay is the ideal accommodation. The premises are beautiful and the location is only 2 km from the centre.

We enjoyed our stay at Lily Pad.” – Carmel, Airbnb, April 2015

“We had a great 3 night stay at The Lily Pad! The communication was fantastic and the place had everything you needed and more (especially the kitchen!) We appreciated the sound system & board games which were enjoyed with a glass of wine after a long day driving. Very peaceful and tranquil away from busy Byron town but close enough to walk if needed. The Farmers Markets each Thursday are just down the road too! Thanks again for the wonderful stay!” – Tiffany, Airbnb, June 2015

“Lily Pad was the perfect place to stay at Byron. It is so close to town and the beach, but also provides you with so much privacy and seclusion. It is only a couple of minutes drive to town.” – Marcus, Airbnb, February 2015
