Very happy with my recent stay at Barbara's Guesthouse. Conveniently located, only 5 minute walk to town. Refreshing recent renovation, with beautiful outdoor area to share with friends and family. Would highly recommend this share style accommodation.

What a wonderful stay at Barbara's Guesthouse! Clean, comfy rooms, a gorgeous patio to enjoy breakfast on, and a laid back welcoming vibe that just made me want to stay longer. Everyone was so lovely! And the outdoor shower was heaven. Definitely coming back!

We had a terrific 2 nights stay at Barbara's.This style of accommodation suited all of our needs. Exceptionally clean and tidy with all the facilities that we needed including delicious fresh fruit for breakfast and beach towels. I loved the quiet outdoor area. It is a short walk to town .The owner is delightful.

It is decorated simply but with great taste. The bedrooms all have their own bathrooms which have recently been renovated. There are several common...

Had a couple of gorgeous days at Byron and Barbara's Guesthouse. Immaculate, beautifully styled in beach chic and a great location - a quick walk into town. Loved the covered deck, great place to hang with a cuppa and some of their yummy sourdough toast!!
