Byron Bay House Rental Photos and Description
Atop a ridge with complete privacy and peace
Aquila is an exquisite mountain retreat located in the beautiful Wilson's Creek region of the Byron Bay Hinterland.
The 130 acre property commands one of the most breath-taking views in the hinterland. Sitting atop a ridge at the eastern end of the Koonyum Range, it has 270 degree panoramic views that take in the Boogarem Falls, Mount Chincogan, Byron Bay and the Cape Byron Lighthouse.
The epitome of privacy and seclusion, Aquila is ideal of couples, or small groups, looking to relax and rejuvenate in an area of outstanding natural beauty. You'll only have to share it with the Wedge-tailed eagles that nest on the property.
This exquisite mountain chalet with 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, spa room and 12m lap pool, captures the 'organic' architectural ideals of the famed American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. The blue stone walls are raw and defiant, the weathered chocolate cedar rich and textured, the expansive black-tinted windows private and reflective, and the roof lines eye-catching from every angle of the 2 acres of landscaped surrounds. The interior perfectly echoes the exterior with cool black slate floors, raw blue stone feature walls, and redolent oregon combined to great effect. The result is a triumph of design and craftsmanship that sits in perfect harmony with its spectacular and dramatic surrounds.
Watch the sunrise over Australia's most easterly point, as the morning mist hugs the valley floor. Enjoy an espresso or herbal tea in the 'conversation pit' and take in the spectacular Boogarem escarpment with its waterfalls. Rock on the swing-seat and be mesmerised by the Wedge-tail eagles as they soar on the thermals over hinterland valleys. Walk the 400m 'razorback' track at your door to the Eagle's Eyrie lookout and take in the stunning panoramic coastal views. Take up your favourite yoga positions on the expansive lawns. Watch the emerald butterflies dance around the native wildflowers, spot the vibrant green tree frogs hiding in the foliage or welcome the local wallabies that visit the residence. Pamper yourself with some aromatherapy and a spa bath, a massage on the terrace, or simply float around in the 12m salt water lap pool. Take a book and sit in solitude on the jetty overlooking the dam. And as night falls, relax into the leather lounges beside the open fire place, listen to deafening silence of nature and watch the blinking of the Cape Byron lighthouse in the distance.
Aquila is the perfect destination for your next holiday.
