If you follow us on Instagram, you might have noticed that last week we escaped the cold weather of Sydney for Byron Bay. Byron Bay is one of those incredible destinations where everything just feels right, so when Byron Marvel – an epic four-bedroom villa in the heart of Byron Bay offered us a long weekend stay in their digs, we were on a plane with a suitcase full of bikinis and short shorts quick sticks.
One of the best things about Byron Marvel is its location. Positioned on the corner of Marvel and Fletcher Street, you’d never expect a villa of its size to be so central yet so hidden away. Sitting above cult home wears store Ahoy Trader and smoothie bar Naked Treaties, the four-bedroom villa sleeps 10 people and has an epic outdoor courtyard for entertaining that is surrounded by palm trees and sunshine. Never before in Byron Bay have I stayed so close to the action – the best beaches, cafes, bars, restaurants and shops were all in walking distance from Byron Marvel including the Spell & the Gypsy Collective boutique, which was a 30-second stroll from the front door.
The styling of the villa was like my website brought to life. Aqua accents, tribal touches and surfer vibes were all mixed in amongst luxurious finishes. There was a gourmet kitchen, two bathrooms with rain head showers, a freestanding bathtub, a balcony off the main bedroom and an awesome courtyard. There was even a wall hanging with the phrase ‘It’s always summer somewhere’ that made me feel right at home and a cushion with ‘Love is an island’ on it that I became obsessed with (for obvious reasons). Wander downstairs to Ahoy Trader and surrounding home wears boutiques, and you’ll find the same summery pieces to take home with you.
With its four-bedrooms (one with a sofa bed), two bathrooms, parking for two cars, epic outdoor courtyard, Byron Marvel is perfect for groups of friends and families wanting to experience the best of Byron Bay. And with its close proximity to the entire town, you might need more than a long weekend 🙂
