Explore the beautiful Byron hinterland from our new fully self contained cottage offering total privacy for couples, solo adventurers and business travellers.

Conveniently located close to the regions many local attractions, beaches and fine dining yet far enough away to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet at the end of the day on 2.5 acres of rural retreat.... the best of both worlds.

The space

The cottage has it's own entrance and is fully screened off from the main house to ensure privacy for our guests, both inside and out.

The bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom and comfortably accommodates a queen size bed. It has a full size built in robe with hangers provided. Bed linen/ bath towels are supplied and the bed is ready made for your arrival.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all (mainly new) appliances including dishwasher, double oven, cook-top, microwave, washing machine and TV/DVD. A selection of Tea/Coffee is supplied as well as basic condiments. A gas BBQ and outdoor heater is also provided for your sole use.

There is free internet TV and WIFI from which you can access your music of choice. A selection of DVD's, games and books are also supplied. There is full mobile reception in the cottage and surrounds.

Reclining deck chairs also provided to soak up the sun or just relax and enjoy a drink and the end of the day.

Guest access

An in ground salt water pool is available to our guests and you can help yourself to the herb garden and fruit in season - mangoes, oranges, bananas.

Interaction with guests

As we live in the main house adjacent to the cottage we are available if you need anything during your stay but your privacy will be respected as we want you to feel at home in your own space.

Other things to note

The property is also home to three friendly animals - Roy and Charlie our labrador dogs and Bruno our 'namesake' pet sheep (who thinks he's a dog!). They roam the yard as they choose and love making new friends.

Marisa and Matthew’s place was the perfect home away from home. The place was private, peaceful and very beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay there and had a really good time hanging out with their friendly doggies and Bruno the sheep! Marisa and Matthew were really helpful and we loved that we had snippets of conversations with them whenever we could. Definitely recommend anyone who’s visiting to give their airbnb a go. We surely had a good time.

We had a comfortable stay at Bruno's place for a weekend. It had everything we needed and Marisa and Matthew are very friendly, helpful and thoughtful hosts. We would recommend Bruno's to anyone wanting a stay in this picturesque part of the country. Alison and Brett

Bruno's is possibly one of the best airbnb's we've ever stayed in! We stayed in Bruno's cottage for 8 nights while we explored Byron. We quickly realised that Bruno is in fact the sheep-ish sheep, who minds his own business at the back of the property but likes the occasional ear rub. The bed is extremely comfortable and we slept soundly every night. Being in the hinterland means no traffic noise but just beautifully peaceful bird and owl sounds at night under the most amazing blanket of stars you can see. The cottage is brand new and has absolutely everything you need for an extended stay. We cooked breakfast most mornings and the occasional dinner. Bruno's parents have the kitchen stocked with coffee beans, a coffee grinder, olive oils, salt/pepper plus a fridge full of goodies like milk, beer, prosecco and hot cross buns. The cottage is also tastefully decorated with floorboards, lovely soft furnishings and wall to wall art. The cottage is separate and private from Bruno's main house, so you don't see the owners at all, unless you want to. Having said that, we just loved getting to know the owner's of Bruno's cottage. They gave us endless tips on places to go in the area and were so lovely and friendly. Their house and grounds are just stunning and we loved sitting out in the sun and soaking it up. If you're after a few nights, or even a week in Byron, I wouldn't hesitate to steer you in the direction of Bruno's cottage. We will definitely be staying again.

We are seasoned travellers and have always considered the best and most interesting part of our travels are the people we meet, whether it be other guests where we're staying, brief encounters with store owners or the hosts of pensions & B&B's where we've stayed. As hosts we hope to help other travellers enjoy their experience as much as we have by meeting others .
