The most immaculate, gorgeous house we could have hoped for. Really special. Mike & Lara from England 12.2.18
We booked last minute with Jen and had the very best time at her gorgeous house. Firstly because Jen and her husband look after it themselves the house is absolutely immaculate, care is taken of every detail as if it were someones own home but is set up as a holiday let. We didn't even see Jen even though she came in after a week to change the sheets and always took care of the bins outside and picking up garden debris. So completely unobtrusive but very attentive. Cleanliness is top notch. The two lounges were great for us as our children could disappear off and have their own space. The outside shower is lovely when you get back from the beach which is a short walk away. Turtle bay is on the same block as 'The Top Shop', the best cafe in Byron which takes some doing as there are loads of them. The terrace decking out front is really nice to sit on and watch the park goings on. Its a peaceful location being in the residential part of town but a 2 min walk across the playing field opposite to the shops. The Pass beach is just up the hill and it's walkable to the lighthouse if you're a keen walker and don't want to pay the Byron parking fees which run at $4 an hour! The bikes Jen left were also really handy for nipping into town and we hired a trailer from the local surf shop who fitted it onto the bike so we could ride up to Belongil beach. This is a wow house with every touch and detail taken care of - you won't be disappointed.
Favourite property in Byron BayVicki 22-10-2017
We had the most wonderful time at Turtle Bay. A group of us stayed there for a week. The house is immaculate, super spacious (lots of room for a group) and absolutely beautifully decorated with an eye for detail. The owners have thought about absolutely everything you need for a wonderful relaxing holiday where you can self cater or walk a couple of minutes to a cafe or restaurant. The beach is only a short 2 minute walk. Check in and check out was absolutely seamless. The owners are incredibly helpful. I'd give it 6 stars if I could - one of the best located and designed properties in Byron Bay for a relaxing holiday experience.
Best House Ever! Stan23-6-2017
We had two families on our holiday at Turtle Bay Byron and I'd say it's the best holiday house any of us have ever stayed in! So good for families as the children had their own living area at the other end of the house with Netflix, games, books and lots of space. The house is very spacious, stylishly decorated and spotlessly clean....and really comfy beds. We loved sitting on the verandah looking at the life going on in the park. The kitchen is really well equipped and fully stocked with all the basics and more - sauces, condiments, spices, oil and vinegars, jam, honey, peanut butter etc - it was great, like being at home. We will definitely be back again next year.
WOW! Angus 14-1-2017
Wow! Cannot speak more highly of Turtle Bay. It is large, modern with all the mod cons you would hope for in a luxury home. Attention to detail was extreme. Big backyard was great for cricket and if you run out of balls we have left a few on the roof. The 4 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 2 lounge areas make it easy for all age groups to relax. 5 minute walk to Clarkes Beach was not too onerous and it is a comfortable walk to town. Jen is a wonderful host and we couldn't recommend this place more. In fact, we have already booked again for next year.
Fabulous holiday house! Perfect for families Michelle 8-3-2016
We really enjoyed our time at Turtle Bay. The location is brilliant – it’s walking distance to town (just through the sporting ground) and about a 4-5 minute walk to the beach.
This house is perfect for young families. The yard is fully enclosed, there are a few games/toys and importantly an excellent coffee shop (just 2 min walk) around the corner for those whose children wake early!
We had a little welcome pack waiting for us on arrival which was very handy; also basics were provided – washing liquid, fully stocked crockery, clothes powder etcWe walked in and felt ready to go. Sometimes self contained houses mean buying all your basics and then only using a small portion, which can be wasteful. It was just very practical to have the kitchen in working order right from the start.
I think what we most enjoyed was the location, quality and spaciousness of the house and everything just seemed ‘easy’. We will definitely be back.
Absolutely Awesome Ben 19-6-2016
Turtle Bay holiday house provided us with one of the best family holidays we have ever had. We had such a good time we extended our stay from 7 nights to 11 nights. The location of the house is simply perfect. The car never left the driveway as it is a very easy walk to the beach, pub, bowling club, coffee shop, park etc etc. It simply could not be in a better spot. The house is immaculately kept and very spacious. The bedrooms are all very large, the bathrooms are very modern, the two lounges (both with Netflix) provide plenty of space and the kitchen has everything you need to make ‘home cooked’ meals, whilst the main lounge/dining area is perfect for large groups. Outside there is a very nice daybed/cabana and bbq area where we spent plenty of time bbq’ing with some cold beers. The front patio is an entertainers delight which overlooks the park across the road. The owners have thought of everything with bath towels, beach towels, crisp bed linen, tea, coffee options, stereo, kitchen pantry items etc etc. They have done all they could to make it feel like a real ‘home away from home’. We are already looking forward to our trip back next year.
Wonderful, central, beautifully maintained beach holiday accommodation Janine 6-7-2016
Perfect location, amazing, gracious house, thoughtful host! What more could you hope for?
We were greeted by a cheese platter and a bottle of champagne which set the mood for a great week. The location was perfect - out of the back packer fray but easy walking distance to shops, cafes, and the beach with little need for the car.
The house was spacious with a wonderful veranda to enjoy a glass of bubbly as the sun set! It's an easy 5 minute walk to the Clarke's beach cafe for breakfast followed by a walk along the beach to watch the whales and dolphins and up and onwards to the lighthouse if you are feeling energetic!
Great location Jayne 1-6-2016
Turtle Bay has everything you need and is close to everything. We had 3 couples and 2 small children, the house provided everything we needed and had a layout that was friendly for everybody. Jen was extremely accommodating and extremely easy to deal with! We’ll be back in the future!
Turtle Bay is beautiful Tim 17-5-2016
Turtle Bay is a beautiful house, it has everything you need and want! The layout is fantastic and it’s so beautifully presented. Jen was very helpful and accommodating to all our requests. Thank you very much Jen! We are already planning our return – loved it!
Fantastic house Sam 27-3-2016
This is a fantastic house, we were all very impressed. Very well equipped kitchen, comfy beds with great linen too. Exceptionally clean, very tastefully furnished and so well set up for bigger family / extended family with kids. Two separate living areas that can be closed off from each other so people can escape each other if need be! Great location, short walk to town but a very quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle! Close to the beach and great Top Shop take away/café. We were made to feel welcome with a cheese platter in the fridge and great communication with the owner. Really such a lovely house, we’d move in and stay if we could.
Beautiful Byron Oasis – Turtle Bay is Amazing Kylie 25-2-2016
Beautiful Byron oasis….everything at our fingertips! Turtle Bay is amazing!! We stayed with friends that have two small children. They had their space and we had ours. Its HUGE! We had everything we could ever need on holidays, bikes, beach towels and umbrellas, luxury surroundings and the cheeky dose of Netflix. The balcony and outdoor shower was a personal fav! Everything is so close, straight down the bush track to the water and up the street to the Top Shop. We absolutely loved everything about our stay and our brief meeting with the owners was lovely too.
Absolutely Loved It Belinda 2-2-2016
Thank you SO much for your beautiful home! We absolutely loved it and can’t wait to come back again. We particularly loved the surround sound system that plays throughout the house, the outdoor shower and watching the sunset from the deck. Gorgeous!
You felt like you are on a luxury holiday as soon as you open the front door! Rory 18-4-2015
Turtle Bay is a near new holiday house with all the comforts of home. There are so many pleasant surprises when opening the fridge and cupboards, to see all the many lovely extra touches to ensure you have a relaxed holiday, ranging from Glad Wrap to a beautiful cheese platter. The house is new, fresh and full of light, with very comfy beds. The kids had their own separate lounge so it suits teenagers or multiple families. And the location is so close to the beach and town centre, it’s perfect. Highly recommended!!!
The Best!! Maz 4-10-2015
Best house. We had the most wonderful stay in a beautiful home. It’s perfectly located and just brilliant. Speakers in the bedrooms!! Great idea. A big backyard for BBQs and exercising. Beach towels for a dip. And a fridge full of goodies. Just an awesome weekend in a grin. It’s the best house I’ve ever stayed in. So perfect and beautiful!
Fantastic house for a truly relaxing holiday Thiago 12-28-2014
Thanks so much for a wonderful holiday. Turtle Bay is a great house whether it's beautiful and sunny or raining in Byron Bay! It is full of the comforts of home, great kitchen, lots of living spaces and so much space outdoors. The whole family enjoyed it and the kids could go across the the playing fields to play on bikes, scooters and skateboards. It is so close to the beach and Byron Bay centre I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone and am sure we will use it again. It was particularly well laid out for us as we are a family of 5 who had family with us with a newborn baby and they had their own living area and bathroom which could be shut off. Enjoy!
