About this listing
Private room with single bed in a homey townhouse, minutes walk to beach. Guests have access to dining and living room, kitchen, BBQ and laundry. Shared bathroom. Includes continental brekkie and WiFi. Can pick up/drop off at Byron Bay on sched.
The private single bedroom is upstairs our homey townhouse. It's east-facing, so it gets morning sun-rays and is not too warm even in the summer arvo (a fan is available to use, however). Because of its proximity to the beach, waves can be heard in the stillness of the night.
The other room (double) is listed on AirBnb as well, so you may share the common areas with other guests.
Guests have access to the kitchen (feel free to use some basic condiments), BBQ in the backyard, lounge, bath tub and laundry at any time of the day (except BBQ which can only be used 'til early eve).
Interaction with guests
My husband, 5-year-old daughter and I have backpacked quite a lot before settling down in this part of the world and we'd love to show hospitality as much as we've received them whilst traveling. On the other hand, we also know the value of privacy, so we'll give you all the privacy you need. We work from home, so we're available any time you need information (we'll look them up for you if we got no idea!).
Other things to note
Free pick up from Ballina Byron Airport (if suits schedule). Can also pick up from Gold Coast Airport and Byron Bay by negotiation.
Would appreciate if shoes are left at the door.
No smoking in the house.
We don't charge cleaning fee so please clean as you go.
Check-out time is 10am.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.

I am a Tarlac-born-slash-Manila-raised perpetual traveler, a mouse potato, culture junkie, Joni Mitchell fan, retired partyphile, spoon collector, and a tree hugger.
I love the feeling of being lost while backpacking (except when running late for a bus).
In 2007, after backpacking within my home country for 5 years, I decided it was time to travel abroad. I did a 6-week solo trip to Europe and came back without getting rid of the travel bug - so I worked for half a year in U.A.E. and spent my earnings backpacking Southeast Asia and China.
Late 2009 I plotted my hazy RTW route to live in different cities and bask in diverse cultures, however this plan was tentatively rescheduled when I discovered early 2010 that my backpacking partner-slash-hubby and I were about to have our first child.
We're pursuing that dream now as a family! We've been on the road since June 21, 2011. I've been to 46 countries (my husband, about the same), and our daughter has been to 33.
(Current situation: We just settled in a humble abode near the beach in East Ballina, NSW, Australia where we also host via AirBnb.)
