The space

Perched on the highest point of a beautiful and private 5 acre elevated parcel in the Byron Bay hinterlands is this stunning open-plan home with breathtaking views. A private pine-tree lined entrance frames a long drive-way that leads up to the villa.

Sunset Villa is a peaceful, spacious abode with high ceilings and an expansive multiple-purpose living, dining and kitchen area with a wood burning fire. One is immediately captured by the view to the west through a combination of large wooden doors & bi-folds which lead to an enormous covered outdoor entertaining deck. The hinterland views from the fenced pool are stunning, particularly at sunset.

The main house sleeps 10 adults comfortably with 3 QB's, 2 king-size beds & a double bed (4 bedrooms are equipped with TVs & DVD's in each room plus a TV & DVD in the main lounge room & 1 TV on the outside deck). There are two bathrooms including a master suite with an ensuite that leads out to a private sun deck. The positioning of the home maximizes light and the breezes & has plenty of room for all with two living areas inside and a huge entertaining deck outside.

On the same property as the main house is Sunset Cottage which can be holiday let with Sunset Villa or on its own. Sunset Cottage is a fully self-contained 1 bedroom cottage that can sleep up to 5 guests (it has a QS bed, a QS sofa bed & a smaller sofa bed ideally suited for 1 adult or 2 children).

The cottage has two walls of floor to ceiling glass to maximise the beautiful views and a free-standing bath with sunset, garden & hinterland views. Sunset Cottage offers those looking for a romantic, private & relaxing getaway.

The Master bedroom contains a lush queen bed, TV, DVD & iPod dock sound system with views of the garden. The lounge room has a relaxing & private feel, that opens up to an expansive deck ideal for outdoor dining or curling up with a good book on the deck chair enjoying the beautiful country breezes & views. The bathroom creates complete relaxation, allowing views to be enjoyed from the glass shower & free-standing bath.

The kitchen is fully equipped and bi-fold doors in the living area open onto the deck, where there is an outdoor setting for four and a BBQ. The garden is home to many impressive fruit trees enhancing the lush garden surrounds.

Sunset Villa & Cottage is a ten minute drive to Byron Bay town & beaches, Bangalow, Brunswick & Mullumbimby and only 25 mins from Ballina airport and 35 mins from Gold Coast airport.

Wow, such an amazing house and cottage. It has all the amenities you would want and more, all set in the beautiful surroundings of Myocum. Our kids loved the pool. This was a perfect retreat for our large family get together. Close to Byron Bay. This is an unforgettable place to stay! Would love to come back again! Jen was the perfect host.

The view here is beautiful and the outdoor space is designed to take advantage of this view. Would be great for a getaway during the warmer months where you could maximise this space. The place is situated in a quiet area and is perfect for a tranquil getaway. It's about 10 minutes from The Farm (which is excellent, we went there twice during our stay) and about 20-25 minutes to the centre of town. Note that the listing actually describes and shows 2 separate listings - the villa and the cottage - and that it is these two combined that makes up the 'sleeps 13, 6 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms' that is listed in the property listing. On its own, the villa is a 5 bedroom house with 2 bathrooms - one of which is in the ensuite, which can get interesting with 10 people in the house. The owners have told us that this has not been a problem previously but I think it's worth pointing out as this can be misleading in the event that you rent this place expecting it to accommodate a group of 13. Some of the amenities are a bit dated but it's enough if you're just after basics. The toilet in the ensuite also was running and needed a temporary manual fix while we were there. The owners were responsive in talking us through how to fix it and advised us that they had a plumber already on the case, however we would have appreciated a heads up so the problem didn't keep us up and night and waste a whole heap of precious tank water. This experience has somewhat tainted my previous wonderful airbnb experiences but overall, the company and the view made it all ok.

What a spot! Stunning house with a stunning view. Perfect for 10 friends catching up over a weekend before the Christmas mayhem. Beautiful open areas for mingling and private areas when we wanted some downtime. No need to go to the beach when you have it all in this quiet spot. Thanks so much, will certainly recommend!

This is my second stay in the Sunset Villa. It's a beautiful home in the perfect location for a stay near enough to Byron to enjoy town but further enough away to have your own peace and quiet. All the rooms have everything you need and the kitchen is perfect for entertaining. I would recommend this place for a holiday.

I booked Jen's incredible house for one of our artists, who were performing at Splendour in the Grass. Although I personally was not staying at the property, my boss said that is was beyond expectations! Jen was so helpful and quick to respond leading up to the booking. Thanks SO much Jen! See you next time we play Splendour :)
