Booked this for 4 nights and have left after just 1 night! It really was not what me, or my husband expected. First class pictures give the impression everything is bigger than it is. It is a big room incorporating units to give the impression of a kitchen! I think s tone would be hard pressed to cook anything on the portable 2 ring 'cooker ' and you need to be very tall to get it out of the cupboard for a start! The fridge is not really a fridge but a 'cooler' that freezes food you don't want frozen!!! I could smell dampness in the room and I'm not surprised, as there is no heating and a constant exchange of moist air between the shower room, the kettle and body heat! 2 towels were left out for us i dont know how they are supposed to dry after showers in a damp room. Unfortunately, when we arrived and for most of the evening it rained. The room was cold with condensation dropping down the patio doors and for the price being charged per night we feel is totally unacceptable! We did phone to speak to the owner Tarek and got housekeeping instead, they then gave us Tareks number. We left a message on his mobile and 48hrs later still waiting for him to get back to us. I notice a lot of comments relate to the absence of any management on site and this is true both onsite and on mobile!

My partner took me to Cavvanbah for a surprise getaway and I was blown away! The rooms are private, modern yet with a coastal feel, very private, clean and everything you need. We loved having our outdoor deck for eating, outdoor bath and hearing the ocean in the background. The location is unbeatable, a short path leads straight to the beach and walk to the centre of byron for all the night life in less than 5 mins. The pool is beautiful and has a Balinese feel to it, I really felt like I had travelled abroad to a tropical paradise! Thanks Cavvanbah for a wonderful stay!

stayed with my wife for a mini break, 3 night. Great location away from the centre of Byron, close to the beach.Lovely atmosphere for couples, quiet and away from other guests with each unit/cabin being self contained and private. room was clean and good size for our weekend, we enjoyed our break.

Had a great vacation with my girlfriend. The atmosphere here was awesome!! Great sites, we had fun overall. The studio was beautiful and located around the beach, the pool besides was in a different class and the only downside was parking on the street. Penthouse villa is just the place to be, it's just another haven on earth.

My hubby and I recently chose Cavvanbah for our 2 night anniversary get away. The cost was more than we would usually spend, but seeing it was a special occasion we decided to do it anyway. To be honest, although I cannot really put my finger on why, we were a little underwhelmed upon arrival. Perhaps we just expected something "more" seeing we were paying higher than our normal budget, so definitely more about "expectation" rather than an issue with Cavvanbah as such. The location is fantastic! We had a car space, behind the gate, under cover which means FREE parking all weekend as we were able to walk EVERYWHERE! Plus the beach access is great as well and a leisurely 10min stroll along the beach and you are in town. The room was private, except when the lady from the next villa took a wrong turn and attempted insistently to try and unlock our villa with her key! :) It was comfortable, modern and had all the amenities that one could want for a comfortable couple of night stay. On booking i was very excited at the thought of the outdoor bath,however we did not make use of it in the end as it was not as private as I had hoped (could be seen from the gate), it was tucked right in the garden so I was a bit concerned about bugs and it did not have a lot of space around it so it just did not really appeal in the end. We requested an earlier check in, but this was unavailable as it needed extra cleaning apparently. However when we arrived we still found an ashtray with cigarette butts and ash on the outdoor table and a lot of spider webs and dead bugs around the inside of the windows in the bathroom. I am probably a bit of a neat freak so this was a bit disappointing too. But I must admit everything else was neat and well clean. Upon checking out, due to bad communication about who was packing what, I left ALL my clothes in a cupboard. I am grateful that the cleaners found this and promptly gave me a call to advise enquire about this. As we were still local I was able to go back promptly and collect my things. Needless to say that the service that we did need while at Cavvanbah, although minimal, was great! Having said all that, I would recommend Cavvanbah for couples who are wanting a quiet relaxed weekend or couple of days/nights in Byron. We had a good time and stayed comfortably.

My wife and daughter spent some bonding time at Cavvanbah and praised all the modern amenities, services and staff. They said the whole experience was perfect in every way. The cleanliness was exceptional and would recommend it to anyone.

Stayed with my boyfriend in the penthouse for one night. Amazing, amazing place I cannot recommend it enough, beautifully kept little apartment on incredibly cute grounds a stone throw away from the beach. Outdoor bath was an extra added bonus for us. One of the nicest places I've stayed in in my 25 years of living. Can't wait to return. Only downfall was the LED lights under the bed not working. Would recommend this place to anybody :)

We spent two glorious nights at this beautiful property staying in the Yarrawarrah penthouse villa. The property is very easy to find and close to everything important in Byron. Security is sensational and parking is convenient and easy to access behind a remote controlled gate. Our villa was well equipped, modern, comfortable, spacious and full of top quality furniture and appliances. The outdoor Bali bath in our private courtyard was an added indulgence.

Perfect holiday with my daughter. Clean beautiful studio with everything you could need. Amazing location right in the beach and a jump into the private pool next to apartment. Really was outstanding. Loved it and highly recommend. We had parking but it was fine parking on the street. Thank you Cavvanbah:)

Great little complex in a good location within walking distances to beach and shops. Beautiful pool and landscaped gardens. Love the outdoor bath as well! Perfect get away for couples. We really enjoyed our stay.
