Longbourn is perfect for relaxed and casual entertaining –set in a tranquil enviroment. Inside, the rooms are cool, comfortable and spacious. Outside, the large deck has a BBQ with outdoor dining that takes advantage of the fabulous garden setting. But when it’s time for privacy, it’s easy to escape with many small tranquil getaways – shady verandas with daybeds piled high with pillows, decks with sun beds and courtyards with tables and chairs to soak up the sunshine or catch a cool balmy breeze.
In the main house, French doors open from each of the three bedrooms (one king and two queen) on to a verandah or garden area. Upstairs there is a queen bedroom that has its own private living area and en-suite.
There is also a two bedroom studio located in the rear garden. Upstairs in the studio is an open and airy bedroom (queen) and an enormous ensuite bathroom with spa bath and double shower. Downstairs is a full kitchen, living area and bedroom (double or twin).
All of the six bedrooms have fans and air conditioning.
Longbourn sleeps up to 10 people comfortably – this house is ideal for family groups allowing a maximum of 8 adults and 2-4 children, making it an exceptional option for 2 small families or extended family groups.
The property – house and studio - is generally let as a total package sleeping 8 adults and 2-4 children-please note we only allow family groups. The main house, sleeping 8 people, may also be separately available on application.Read more

Additional Location Information
“Sun, surf, relaxation and creativity – all of these are synonymous with the name Byron Bay, a laid-back tourist mecca that's one of Australia's top destinations for local and overseas visitors looking to experience a heady mix of beachy indulgences, cultural intrigue, and some of the best nightlife our vast country has to offer. Captain Cook thought it was worthy of a visit way back in 1770 and for decades now many writers, artists, filmmakers and other creative individuals have made Byron Bay their home. Is it time you discovered the delights of Byron Bay? Byron Bay may have a population of around 30,000, but in summertime you'll be forgiven for thinking that it's twice that. While relatively balmy enough all year around, Byron Bay becomes nothing less than a tourist idyll in the summer months.”

The house was full of old world charm with a modern twist, the recent renovation was in keeping with the character of the home but failure to detail caused injury.
The wedding morning was ruined when I was injured on the back veranda when I took a cup of coffee out to my daughter. Unfortunately the rotten floor boards gave way and my foot went through causing my new shoes to be ripped. Of greatest distress was the aggravation to my lower back that caused me to seek medical attention for numb toes and back pain that lasted weeks. The owners replaced my shoes as I refused to accept a free nights accommodation. Read more
Response from Holiday Accommodation Pty Ltd - 08/13/2013
As this guest explained this house is an old heritage house which has been renovated to retain the true character of this beautiful home. This accident was indeed unfortunate and was caused by a rotting joist underneath a back section of the rear deck. We immediately had the deck repaired and other sections examined for any further potential issues.
We did attempt to offer compensation in forms of some free nights etc. This houses is truly a beautiful character filled home and we get many positive responses fro our guests who stay here.
We are truly sorry for any suffering this unfortunate incident may have caused.
family friendly, hard to fault, lots to enjoy

well furnished rooms, roomy and very well-equipped kitchen, many useful appliances (e.g. iPhone-compatible speakers, quality lounge room stereo, large LCD tvs, cordless phone and big Weber BBQ), spacious deck with huge umbrella, comfortable sofas and armchairs, sumptuous garden, convenient keyless entry system, and very well located near the beach and a wonderful cafe.
it's somewhat astonishing to find a large sauna and vichy shower on this property. the fact that hot water isn't available in the latter results in a final score of 4.999 stars out of 5.
