About the property

Tallow Beach Retreat for adult couples or a single, is a modern and very spacious 1 bedroom ground floor apartment with air conditioning to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. It is fully self contained which provides great privacy with a peaceful ambience.

Looking out over the leafy front courtyard garden area through French doors in the lounge room, all you'll see are birds, seasonal flowers and lush greenery.

Also in the front courtyard is a gas BBQ with an outdoor setting for casual dining and relaxing.

Tallow Beach Retreat is an affordable & comfortable apartment that is perfect for couple's or a single person getaway. The generous sized separate bedroom has one comfy Queen sized bed with high quality linen and plenty of wardrobe space for guests wishing to stay a little longer.

The bathroom is sleek, spacious and modern with all towels supplied.

For bookings over one week, a fresh linen and towel changeover is provided.

In the lounge room there's a corner sofa with a chaise to relax on and watch the widescreen LCD HD TV (with Foxtel Pay TV) or listen to music. A Blue Tooth Sound Bar is in place so you can stream from the web via your phone or listen to your own playlists. Free Wi Fi is included in the tariff. There is a selection of books to read here or on the beach, feel free to take it with you if not finished!

The kitchenette/ dining area is a great size and has a fridge/ freezer, convection microwave, electric frypan, toaster, kettle and a coffee machine for all your basic cooking needs. There are some basic pantry items supplied to get you started.

Tallow Beach Retreat is privately owned and managed with owners on site.

Perfectly and conveniently located, close to all you'll need for a great holiday.

Parking for your car is just at the front of our property on the verge.

Situated in friendly Suffolk Park, we're just a 5 minute drive from Byron Bay. So close to all that our vibrant town has to offer but far enough away to provide a quiet break from busy working lives.

An easy 200m (2-3 minutes) flat walk will find you on the golden sands of Tallow Beach with Broken Head just an extra 5 minutes walk South from there. We're ideally located for surfers. We'll provide the beach towels for you too.

A walk around Broken Head headland is a feast for the senses with spectacular views up and down the coast. One of the best vantage points for Whale Watching during the season (May-October).

For the avid Golfer, the Byron Bay Golf Club is a mere 2 minute drive away where you can play a round or two and then have drinks or dinner at The Deck Restaurant to review your game.

Suffolk Park is on the route for a regular bus service into Byron Bay, Lennox Head & Ballina plus the Festival shuttles.

Loads of Local Amenities

We're blessed with one of the regions best coffee spots just 200m away too. The Suffolk Bakery makes great coffee as well as fantastic bread, pies, sandwiches & cakes baked daily on site.

Also just 5 minutes from us is Tully's Cafe, open for breakfast and lunch 7 days plus dinner Friday to Sunday. Fast becoming a favourite with the locals, drop in and enjoy the vibe.

There is also a local shopping centre with a small Spar supermarket, Chemist, Take Away food shops, Post Office and the famous (well locally famous) Park Hotel.

Additionally there is a convenient coin operated laundromat just down the road from us in the caravan park.

Of course, there are also the many other local attractions and restaurants in the Byron Bay/ Northern Rivers region to enjoy.

So come and experience our great town and have a wonderful, rejuvenating or relaxing stay with us at Tallow Beach Retreat.

Please note: Tallow Beach Retreat is a non party property.

Sorry: We do not take Schoolies bookings

Apologies: We don't accept pets due to our own dog on premises who doesn't like sharing her space!!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Tallow Beach Retreat was exactly what I needed to feel re-energised. A perfect quiet location. Far enough away from the busyness of Byron Bay but only a 10 minute bus drive in. The place was clean and more spacious than the photos show with every comforts of home. I loved the privacy of the tranquil garden and the great little Indian cafe 5 mins walk down the Rd.

Wendy and Marc were the perfect hosts. Friendly and welcoming!

We recently had a short mid week break at Tallow Beach Resort. This is a fantastic property, beach and local shopping centre are a short walk and the property is well presented. The property owners are knowledgeable about the area and are wonderful hosts.

Wendy's local knowledge was most appreciated in the lead up to our stay at Tallow Beach. The photos do not do this accomodation justice. It is even better in real life. So glad I found this little gem. Perfect. !!

So comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful fortnight at Tallow Beach Retreat. The property is furnished with every little comfort and larger than the photos suggest. It is very conveniently placed for both the beach and local shops and restaurants. Tallow Beach is gorgeous and Byron an easy drive or bus ride away if you don't want to hire a bike. The owners Mark and Wendy know just how to be hospitable without being intrusive. We will be back.
