Starr Cottage Byron Bay
About the home
Beautiful Starr Cottage is located only metres from Byron's most beautiful and friendliest beach, as well as the centre of town. All of Byron's major attractions are right at your doorstep from this centrally located house....yet you'll feel a million miles away from it all as you'll be tucked away from the main roads backing directly onto a nature reserve in quiet Shirley Lane. Although Starr Cottage has available off street parking, you can leave the car behind as Belongil Beach and Byron Town Centre are only a few minutes walk away!
Starr Cottage is a newly renovated home featuring four bedrooms and two bathrooms with all of the luxuries you'd expect for a hassle free holiday. All furnishings are beautifully appointed to match the unique style of Byron Bay. The brand new kitchen is sparkling with granite benchtops and European appliances. The lounge room features a 50" Plasma TV and DVD player, surrounded by a funky leather lounge suite. The parents retreat upstairs is very private, with a TV and a DVD player, as well as it's own ensuite. We also offer complimentary Austar and WiiFii access at the property.

The Byron Bay area
Byron Bay is located in northern New South Wales and has several beaches which are popular for surfing. It is a resort popular with both domestic and international tourists, including backpackers, who travel along the Australian coast, and the scenery attracts sky divers. The area is also noted for its wildlife, with the whale watching industry a significant contributor to the local economy.
An oceanway runs from the centre of town to the Cape Byron lighthouse. Visitors are encouraged to use sustainable options for moving around town like walking and cycling.
Temperate and tropical waters merge at Byron Bay, making it a popular area for scuba diving and snorkelling. Most diving is done at Julian Rocks which is part of the recently established Cape Byron Marine Park and only a few minutes boat ride from Main Beach.
Byron Bay is now also a popular destination for Schoolies week during late November and early December.
