Came up for a mini holiday to celebrate my B-day, this was the perfect get away. A very quick drive (3-4 minutes) out of the hustle and bustle of Byron Bay and you arrive in the tranquility of Cape Byron Retreat.

Went away for a romantic weekend. Was nothing shy of perfect (even with the rainy weather). Friendly and helpful owners suggesting things to do around. Suggested best parking spots to go into town and also nice cafe/restaurants. Great stay. Nice room set out only slightly negative was the bathroom door was not a full closing so limited privacy, but still...

The perfect Byron experience. Quaint and relaxed. Away from the hustle and bustle of town. Feels like diving into paradise and you forget the world around you. Here you get everything you expect from beautiful accommodation to beautiful surroundings. The perfect getaway. This is the only spot we would ever stay in Byron. We are regular visitors.

We stayed here over Easter 2015, and found it very comfortable for two couples in their 2 bedroom unit. It would also suit a family with 2 children. Traffic in and out of Byron is always a problem over Easter and Bluesfest, but it saved us a bit of time because we didn't have to go through town. Only disadvantage...

A stunning peaceful location overlooking rolling hills which gives the illusion complete isolation however you are only 5 minutes from the centre of Byron Bay. The room we stayed in was extremely clean and well presented. Angela was a beautiful hostess offering great local tips to avoid a couple tourist traps in the area and recommending some nearby restaurants. We...

We have stayed at Cape Byron Retreat several times now and each time we've enjoyed our stay immensely. This secluded and tranquil retreat is perfect! Very peaceful and relaxing! It's truly the best retreat! It's not too far away from Byron Bays town centre and beachfront, which is very convenient to get to. The owners are beautiful and more than...

This is a lovely property in the hinterland. We wanted something quiet but close to beaches and town centre and this suited us perfectly. Its about 4km to town and nearest beach. The cottage was spotless and private. Though there were others in the other cabins you never saw them. The hosts are lovely. The bbq and pool area are...

I can confirm what all other reviews say! The owners are lovely, the place is beautiful and the photos really don't do it justice. We stayed in a deluxe studio, it was clean, modern and equipped with everything we needed -including a spa! It didn't even bother me that it rained for our entire stay as it meant we could...

My boyfriend and I stayed here over the ANZAC long weekend and it was definitely a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of Sydney. The retreat is set in beautiful surroundings, only a short drive from the main town, and feels like a little haven among the trees. There is a fantastic BBQ and communal area, which we had...
