You might know by now that I love Byron Bay. Every time I drive past the “Welcome to Byron, chill out” sign, I instantly feel at home. It’s a place that’s often very hit or miss with holiday makers and I can see why – most see it as a hippy town but others like me see it for it’s amazingly delicious, organic food, chilled vibes and friendly people, let alone it has absolutely stunning beaches and a gorgeous hinterland to go with it.

With it being my fourth visit in the last two years, this time round I managed to find the most amazing beach house in Belongil, just a few minutes drive out of the town centre. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Byron Bay that’s right on the beach, you’ve come to the right place. It’s a rare find in Byron to stay on the beach as the locals have managed to keep most of the coastline untouched without any building sites. And the reason why this is a rare find is, it turns out this beach house was once Byron’s fist pub!
Our beach house!
I found the beach house on Airbnb which is ran by a local couple called William & Laura. They live downstairs whilst we had our own entrance and the upstairs all to ourselves with the magnificent view.
With a bathroom complete with bath and shower, a separate toilet, 2 bedrooms and an open plan living room with new kitchen, we were also spoilt with an outside area and uninterrupted sea views.
We stayed in this room which has a really comfy bed and sea views!
The second big bedroom with loads of wardrobe space!
A beautiful big living area complete with a TV although you’ll want to watch the ocean instead!
Our own outdoor space!

There’s a really cool pub called Treehouse which is just a five minute walk down the road where we had dinner.
And on our last night after dinner, we went for a bit of a romantic walk outside our beach house to find the beach lit up by the bright moon and not another person in sight. It was perfect!
I even made a video so you can get a good feel of the beach house!
