IN THE MEDIA: Urban List’s Best Airbnbs In Byron Bay

IT'S AWAYS NICE TO GET POINTERS TO OUR BEAUTIFUL ACCOMMODATION AND IT CERTAINLY DOESN'T HURT TO HAVE ONE OF THOSE POINTERS FROM THE URBAN LIST.

The Urban List, the go-to space to get the lowdown on all sorts of stuff from ‘the best local things to do and eat, the brands and experiences to buy, see and share across style, design, beauty, health, entertainment, career, finance and travel’, has listed eight of Airbnb’s favs in Byron Bay in their latest communique. 

“There’s a plethora of choices in Byron,” they say, “from contemporary abodes to authentic farm stays or maybe a retro beach shack is more your jam.”  We’re just pleased that two of their picks are from the Byron Beach Abodes portfolio of holiday properties: The Chapel, which has the feel of a New York loft with its 100-year-old exposed bricks, timber beams, concrete floors and raw steel staircase, and The Cabin which is pure luxury and sophistication with its statement recycled-jarrah cladding, sleek design, infinity edge mineral pool bedded into a towering, eucalyptus-gum-studded block and just a short work from Clarkes beach.  As Urban List says, “The Cabin has raised the best Byron Bay Airbnb bar even higher.”  Nice. True.

MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME WITH 8 OF THE BEST AIRBNBS IN

BYRON BAY


TEMPLE FARMHOUSE

A super private hacienda set in the Byron Hinterland that sleeps up to nine guests, Temple Farm House oozes charm with a touch of global spice. With intimate outdoor areas for that stylish soiree complete with oversized outdoor troths to bath in, this property is as authentic as it is chic. The added touches and detail are what make this property special, like the quirky handmade cubby house and chook pen. A magical place that embraces its natural surrounds and where you’ll often find kangaroos roaming the property, Temple Farm House is one of the finest Airbnbs in Byron Bay.

BYRON BAY BLACK

Located in the golden grid between Clarkes Beach and Top Shop, the luxurious Byron Bay Black property offers five or three bedrooms with sparkling pools, together with studio options for couples or the solo traveller. Tones are black with a smidge of neutral to compliment the earthy space; think rustic bathtubs with sleek vanities and bathrooms to swoon over, making this little black duck stand out from the crowd.

THE CHAPEL - BYRON BEACH ABODES

One of the most lust-worthy Airbnbs in Byron Bay, The Chapel is inspired by New York City apartments, with a loft bedroom, exposed bricks and chic design lines—it’s as funky as it is functional. Sleeping just two guests, this property is perfect for a romantic getaway. A hop and a few skips and you’re at the beach, while on the way back you can grab a coffee at a number of enticing cafes along the way.

TOORALOO FARM HOUSE

You could be anywhere in the world in this eclectic, valley property. A short 10-minute drive into Byron Bay, Tooraloo Farm House is ideally located in Myocum in the Byron Hinterland, set amongst mountain vistas and lush surrounds. The property has had a funky makeover, with the old dairy converted into the ideal family or romantic getaway. The main farmhouse is styled to suit with an array of original art, textiles and furniture that compliment the original façade. There’s an open-air communal space with stunning valley views and large saltwater pool, making it a farm stay that’s also ideal for a pop-up wedding or post-festival shindig.

PADDOCK HALL

If there’s one thing we’re seeking in a Byron Bay getaway, it’s that one-of-a-kind roof over our head; the type of roof that separates our holiday from the next person’s and maybe throws a little Insta-envy in the face of our social followers, too. Lovers of farm life, welcome to Paddock Hall, a blissfully small but modern guesthouse located in Tintenbar in the lush Byron Bay Hinterland. Praising open-plan design in support of rural views over the working macadamia nut farm, Paddock Hall provides the perfect getaway solution with its use of sustainably sourced timbers, exposed beams, vintage claw foot bath on the veranda, tranquil pool and a fireplace for chilly nights. Rise, shine and inhale the fresh country air as you enjoy a breakfast catered by Newrybar’s Harvest (optional) or a wander to visit the resident sheep, goat and chickens. We know what you’re thinking, and to confirm; yes, Paddock Hall is as impressive as it sounds.   

KINGSLEY BEACH HOUSE

A large, modern beach house that sleeps up to eight and central to all that Byron has on offer, Kingsley Beach House is one of the newest kids on the Byron Bay Airbnb block. With an array of bedrooms to make your home away from home, Kingsley is set in a residential area making it ideal for a family getaway. An expansive outdoor deck overlooks the swimming pool and sculpted outdoor shower, with landscape gardens and a fenced yard; Kingsley is the perfect Byron Bay Airbnb to kick back after a full day at Main Beach.

THE CABIN - BYRON BEACH ABODES

The newest addition to the Byron Beach Abodes portfolio, The Cabin is a sophisticated dwelling that embraces bold statements of design and latest trends. Think Ralph Lauren bed heads that adorn king beds and contemporary bathrooms with double showers, complimented with unique black bathtubs and a beautiful horizon edge pool that adorns the manicured gardens. The Cabin has intricate details in its interior and exterior design, both sophisticated and luxurious and has, in turn, raised the best Byron Bay Airbnb bar even higher.  

SALTWATER COTTAGE

Saltwater Cottage is, as the name suggests, a funky beach shack within walking distance to the beach and the renowned Top Shop—loved by locals for its smooth coffee, fresh juices and wholefood snacks. Surrounded by a lush garden setting, this cottage offers two bedrooms and a modern fit-out that compliments the retro style. It’s all in the detail at Saltwater Cottage, with guests raving about the gorgeous interior and exteriors of the property. From comfy beds to gorgeous linen, this retro beauty has it all going on.

LILLI PILLI TREES

Give me a (town) house amongst the gum trees; Lilli Pilli Trees is a peaceful, serene place to rest your head. Set in the quiet and leafy surrounds of its lush garden home, Lilli Pilli is one of our top picks among the best Byron Bay Airbnbs. With the buzz of Byron just down the road and after a day swooning the beach and shops, you’ll be happy to come back to this rustic, tranquil beauty for rest and rejuvenation.
