About the property

A private oasis seconds to the centre of town and Main Beach.

Besakih is a tropical Asian styled apartment with a very large private garden, conveniently located in a very quiet peaceful position, 100mt stroll from Byron's CBD and 100mt to Main Beach (the only beach patrolled by Byron Surf Club).

Inside, antique teak wood and rattan Indonesian furniture,coupled with beautiful bamboo timber floors, give the apartment a welcoming Balinese feel. There are two bedrooms. The main has a queen bed whilst the second sleeps two in singles. Both bedrooms overlook the private enclosed garden. A sofa lounge is available should the bedding configuration not suit.

Besakih is completely self contained with laundry and complete kitchen.

The apartment has a private tropical garden, and there is a pavillion or bale to relax and dine under. Large stone statues throughout the garden create a wonderful tropical atmosphere. The garden is secure making it a great place for young children to play.

Overall, Besakih offers guests a beautifully furnished private garden apartment in a fabulous location and represents outstanding value for money!

Besakihs location has so much going for it! The apartment is in a quiet, tucked away position in town, with no through traffic. Yet we have absolutely everything right on our door step, the beach, shops, famous Markets and farmers markets ,restaurants, pubs and cinemas.

A 100m walk from Besakih and you are at Main Beach and the Byron Bay Surf Club, the only patrolled beach in Byron. This is the most sheltered beach in Byron and besides being patrolled is much safer than Belongil Beach which is very open and can get dangerous and is unsuitable for poor swimmers or children. There is also a public swimming pool at the Main Beach carpark.

Besakih is directly opposite the site of the famous Byron Markets held on the 1st Sunday of every month. Every Thursday a Farmers Market sells fresh local organic produce from the site, and is a great place to source some great local fruit,vegies and locally made food.



The Main Beach of Byron is a popular spot for walkers. Many people walk to The Pass and back, enjoying the fantastic scenery and maybe stopping for breakfast at Clarkes Beach Cafe. A popular walk with locals is doing The Lighthouse walk. This popular walk starts at Main Beach and travels to The Pass, through Palm Valley onto Wategos Beach and continues up to The Lighthouse.

Of course the beach is fantastic! Because it is North facing there is a fabulous view back across the mountains that you could never get tired of. It is common to have dolphins swim in the bay close to shore, they will often surf the waves with swimmers and board riders. Most surf lesson guarantee you will stand on your board or your money back!

The Pass is a lovely beach and it sometimes becomes a tidal lagoon, which is great fun for the kids. People sometimes fish in the lagoon but it is not there all year round. There are lots of beautiful Pandanus trees at The Pass and nice BBQ areas.

If this property is already booked, we have other properties , Santorini apartment at, Santorini Villa at

If you would like to book less than the minimum nights stay then please call me on 0416263298

Would do it again!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfectly located very close to the centre (5 minutes walk to Main Beach), but very quiet though. The asian style is very nice and continues in the beautiful garden with huge palm trees and a nice lounge area. Our host Lois couldn't have been more friendly and supporting. For example: As there was no BBQ but we would have

liked one, she just got one for us without any further discussion. Her responses prior to our stay came very fast and she was helpful all the time, although we never met her personally. If I go back to Byron the Besakih Apartment will be my first choice again.

Response for Lois

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at numerous holiday homes in several countries and never been expected to supply dishwashing liquid or toilet paper. Had we purchased dishwashing liquid we would have had to leave it behind because we are from overseas and it would make a mess in the luggage during the flight. The American girl upstairs has been there two years - we talked with her and she told us that. If you are not going to supply the bare minimum basics then say so - that way people can make an informed decision and/or bring those supplies in advance. Afterall, how is one supposed to know what the previous guest has left or not left?

Excellent family accommodation

  • 4 of 5

We came with an 11 week old baby, and thought the place was just perfect for our needs. There was ample space for all our baby things and outdoor area to play in. We were so close to main beach and cafes so didn't need the car. Would come again.
