About Hilary Borget
My husband and I live in the front house on this property. We have been in Byron Bay many years and are happy to offer suggestions or recommendations on whats on and where to surf, etc.
Hilary Borget purchased this House in 2014
Why Hilary Borget chose Byron Bay
There are few properties this close to the CBD that can offer such a unique "oasis" feeling. We have worked hard to be sure all the comforts of home are here. The kitchen is fully appointed with everything you need and we try to anticipate what our guests may want to have on hand. You will not want to leave! Many of our guests re-book.
What makes this House unique
We who are lucky enough to live on Little Burns often have to pinch ourselves. So close to the hustle and bustle of Byron and yet if feels like we were far away!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Lovely accomodation in Byron bay
The house and pool were very lovely. Pool was warm and very private. The owners were helpful and friendly.
THANKS FOR COMING! PLEASE DO THINK OF US FOR YOUR NEXT BYRON TRIP
This is a little sanctuary in the heart of Byron. Hilary and Ian were the perfect hosts and our son had a terrific time watching the lizards and swimming in the pool. We will be back for sure.
Fantastic place with every thing you could need supplied. Beautiful, clean, private, who could ask for more. I loved this place and would rent it again and again and again!
Spacious, well set up luxury accomodation
Great location, nice to be on the outskirts of the main hustle and bustle but still close enough to stroll into town when you're feeling peckish and / or thirsty. Loved having our own privacy and of course the pool tops it off especially with the kids. Great way to cool off on those hot days. A lovely meals shares. Sheets - super soft and comfy bed. Great fluffy towels, deep bath, beach towels provided ✔️. Strong powerful shower.
Well layed out except there was no pantry in the kitchen. And when you stay for 6 nights, there is not a lot of space to store the groceries / snacks etc.
There was a lot of loud disturbances from the building going on right next door from 7am in the morning (not just hammering but sanding, drilling, plaining) It was very annoying and we should have been told about it prior to checking in. When the climate is warm and humid and you're on holiday it's nice to enjoy breakky / lunch outside and naturally sleep with the windows and doors opened. So It was not very calming when the building was going on from such an early hour. We would have loved to have been able to enjoy the outdoor area more than we did but because of the interference of the loud building noise we couldn't sit outside.
We loved the peace and quiet on the weekend. We at least enjoyed the birds chirping and the tranquility on those two mornings / days. It was bliss.
We also found the shelves etc. a little dusty so we had to clean / wipe over before we unpacked and placed our personal items on the shelves, benches etc.
Oh, and one more little thing, the water takes a long time to go down in the master ensuite sink with king bed.
Overall, friendly host and an excellent set up in a beautiful location. Lovely interior with good choice furnishings. Oh and I forgot to mention, nice mood lighting too. Very thoughtful layout and practical.
In response to this mixed review, Thank you for your feedback.
I would first like to apologise for the construction noise from the property next door. This is very much out of our control. It is always a precarious situation, as when we built The Villa, these same neighbours had to put up with our construction noise. That being said, this build of a small cottage was meant to be completed this winter. It is out of our control if there are delays. We are consistently told it is days from completion. So not sure how to warn people with advance bookings?
We have, on a number of occasions in recent weeks, including whilst you were staying in the Villa, been over to speak with the owners about the use of power tools in the morning. We are told It is completely legal and sent on our way. 100% out of our hands.
I do, once again, and as we did when you were here, apologise. Additionally, we offered you access to another beach house we have with a larger pool to escape the noise during the week, as well as use of all kinds of surfboards and beach equipment so you could fully enjoy your time here. Which you enthusiastically and repeatedly did use.
As far as dirty shelves and benchtops, I am at a loss as to this mention. We are fairly meticulous about such things and I am sorry if they were dusty. I will try harder to double check before checkins arrive.
The pantry issue is in the works and we have plans to extend the kitchen bench to add a cabinet at one end, we are just waiting for the bench top slab to come in. In the meantime we have placed a cabinet there for use as a pantry.
Thank you for the heads up about the bathroom sink draining slowly. It has been fixed. I do however always encourage our guests to inform us immediately of these type of things so that we can fix them right away, whenever possible, so you do not have to experience any inconvenience during your stay.
Gorgeous lush gardens, stunning pool, well appointed and located
A great holiday from the moment we arrived. Our hosts could not have been more accomodating! The property was extremely well maintained and the pool was crystal clear. So many unexpected extra's such as bikes, boogie boards, sporting equipment that were so handy for our teenage boys. Highly recommend this well located property that is within minutes walk to the city centre.
Well we are so pleased you enjoyed your time with us and the property so much. Your comments are very much appreciated as this kind of reaction to our place is exactly what we strive to achieve.
Please come and stay again sometime!
Great hidden gem
Great place, close to town and my ten year old loved the pool. Would definitely book again.
