Very welcoming and lovely stay will definitely come back soon
We were staying at Helens place for about a week. We lived in a room at the end of the house, which had it's own entrance and faced the garden so we saw Helen almost every day painting outside because of her art exhibit (wish you the best and that everything went well like you have planned it). Nothing is missing in the room (desk, wardrobe, mirror, sofa, tv and obviously a bed). We had an own kitchenette, which is well equipped. Helen is kind and suggested to pick us up when we arrive in Byron Bay and also droped us off at the bus station on the day we left Byron. And one day she drove us to the Lighthouse so we only had to go the hilly way down and not up. As she wrote in the discription we had bikes, which was a big help because otherwise we had to walk about 30/40 minutes into towncentre or Main Beach. The house is very easy to find and surrounded by rainforest.
If you are ever going to Byron Bay, you are unlikely to find a better place to stay. The room has everything you could wish for; bed (obviously), a magnificent en-suite shower and toilet, cooking and washing up faciliities and a wonderful outdoor terrace that attracts the sun throughout the day.
The property is about a 20 minute walk into the town centre, but there are frequent buses should you not feel like stretching your legs.
The host, Hele, could not have been more hospitable. Even down to providing me with some essentials to allow me to enjoy a music festival that I was attending.
Oh, and the price was more than reasonable, compared with other places I looked at.
When do I pay?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
