While the property is clean, quiet and comfortable it is starting to look tired. Our room was well appointed and private but lacked any sort of view. The property is an easy walk to the heart of Byron.

We stayed in the Gypsy sweet it was spacious, comfy and clean. It's set out really good and right next to the pool. Awesome location aswell so close to the quiet end of beach but only 5 minutes walk into town. Would highly recommend staying here

our first trip to Byron bay was a bit disappointing due to our stay at Cavvanbah. We stayed in the rio studio which we felt was misrepresented. The studio was very small small, unclean and very basic. The worst was the outdoor bath which was so dirty even though it was covered over; I was not prepared to scrub it...

My partner and I stayed in the 'April Sun' villa and we loved it. Private outdoor bath, great pool and proximity to the beach were perfect. Highly recommended for couples looking for a private getaway, walking distance to the heart of Byron.

My partner and myself stayed here for 4 nights in the "gypsy" studio. The room had everything we needed, the space is used extremely efficiently. The pool is heated and well cleaned, the beach is a stones throw away. It's only a 5 minute walk into the heart of byron yet next to the quieter end of the beach. This...

We have now stayed in the Penthouse Yarrawarra twice. Once for a city break just the two of us and then we came back for a week with our young daughter. What an amazing place. There is a gate in the pool area with direct access to what I think is the best part of the best beach in Byron....

Absolutely loved the accommodation. It was quiet ,clean ,comfortable, and private. Everything that we wanted. Was perfect for our honeymoon. Loved the styling, it was very handy having a kitchenette. The owner and staff were really helpful. Perfect location next to the beach, and we walked into town each day. We will definitely be staying here in the future

Rio at Cavvanbah was beautiful. It was the perfect, secluded, peaceful studio for our post wedding break. We arrived the night of wedding very late. It was practically an oasis after such a busy lead up and wedding day. Although so late, check in was seamless. Tarek sends you all the details you need on the day of check in....
