I recently had the pleasure of staying in Byron Bay for a couple of nights.
Byron is a very popular coastal town located in the Southern eastern side of Australia in
New South Wales. People love it mostly because of its very relaxed atmosphere, beaches,
scuba diving and surfing hot spots. It makes for a great holiday destination for international
travelers but also aussie locals !
I’ve decided to do an accommodation review on two of my favourite air BnBs to stay
while visiting. I feel when choosing accommodation it can be so hit and miss sometimes
regarding pricing and quality. Here is a look at two places I recommend checking
out and staying at when visiting Byron Bay.
CACTI MI CASA - @CACTIMICASA
This loft style air bnb is by far one of the most creative and artistic styled places I have stayed in.
The design of Cactimicasa is an all in one design, this one bedroom loft completely open, there are
no walls within the loft which separate you from the kitchen, lounge or bedroom. It is very unique in
its own way, the floors and walls are cement, the ceiling is raised to create a more open and
free-living space. This unique air bnb has beautiful artwork which has been designed by Vicki-Lee @Vickileelee,
this artwork is truly one of a kind and is so creative. The bedroom has gorgeous oak wooden floating shelves
and hanging lamps, a queen bed with soft linen with layered textures. Outside is a cement balcony
which joins onto Edwards and co hair salon, there are dozens of cacti all shapes and sizes with a
huge wooden table where you can sit for lunch and soak up the sun. Oh.. and also, a massive art piece
which has been painted onto the cement wall, you cannot miss it !
BASK AND STOW: @BASK_AND_STOW
During my time in Byron Bay, I visited Bask and Stow which is a cute mid-century style villa
tucked away in Byron. Surrounded by tall palm trees and wooden walk ways, there are 4 boutique
villas which throw a very tropical vibe. My villa was a one bedroom and one bathroom, the
bathroom was very striking, it had a huge bathtub which was perfect for soaking and the villa also
had a small tiled kitchen. It was completely air coned which was amazing because I was visiting in
February and it was so hot, luckily for me bask and stow had a plunge pool to cool off in while soaking
up some sun.
