Perks for the Parents

This delightful Queenslander timber house with a plantation porch and plenty for kids is in the heart of Bangalow, 15 minutes by car from the surf beaches at Byron Bay. It sleeps up to 8. The house is well set up for a family stay with a large open plan kitchen and a family-sized dining area. The kitchen looks out to the screened-in porch and 100-year-old Morton Bay fig tree and there is a similar chill-out porch at the front of the house. Along with a stylish and spacious master bedroom, there is a separate master bathroom with a soaking tub. An additional double bedroom is ideal for a nanny or au pair.

Why Kids Love it

The residence has plenty of toys and books for children under 5 – think toys, bikes, a scooter, helmets, climbing hexagon, big swing – and is a great family space with a living room large enough for wheeled toys. The two kids’ rooms are are bright and colorful with black-out blinds and night lights for restful sleep. The house is a short walk from local playgrounds and within easy driving distance of the beaches. At Byron Bay Wildlife Safari, 15 minutes by car, children can see Australian wildlife in its natural habitat – you’re guaranteed to spot koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, and flying foxes. Not forgetting the nearby sea and sand.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights. The house is built on stilts and there are ungated external stairs leading up to the house at the front and back. There is a woodburning stove that requires child supervision around it and a Beale piano that guests are welcome to play those children should be supervised with it. All windows and doors can be securely locked where little hands cannot open them. Children can safely play in the secure backyard while parents enjoy afternoon drinks on the porch or make a backyard picnic. Each bedroom has clothing storage and loads of hanging space. The entire home is available for guests except a couple of locked cupboards and the garage. A car is recommended to enjoy the area. There is lots of parking on the road and driveway.

Style Notes

Classic Aussie. This 100-year-old home is full of character with a plantation porch with seating to relax in the shade or sun. The garden is filled with colorful blooms, while inside is predominantly neutral and cooling white-washed wood. There are chandeliers, a marbled work tops in the kitchen, archways between rooms and colored glass. We love the pretty knotted hammock for whiling away the hours on the porch, the zebra rug and the gigantic back porch with 2 areas for kicking back, a children’s hexagon climber and a rocking horse.

I have managed our properties in short term rentals for over 10 years, long before Airbnb, so I'm familiar with guest's needs. Since having children I have had the great fortune to offer our properties to families with children and understand all that this needs too.

Bangalow, Byron Bay

A quieter alternative to Byron

A heritage town located in the lush hinterland of Northern NSW just 10 minutes from Byron Bay, Bangalow is a tranquil alternative to staying in the bustling hub of Byron itself. Along with iconic local architecture featuring timber homes and a main street with classic facades, there is an abundance of kid-friendly cafés and restaurants, a local gallery, parks and a farmers' market every Saturday morning.
