We stayed in a Garden Suite with private entrance. It was a nice comfortable airy room. The hosts are friendly and it was enjoyable to chat with other guests at breakfast. The breakfast was fine - coffee, cereal, muffins, fruit, yoghurt, bread & toast. It was a pleasant place to stay. It's about 45 minutes walk from Byron down the...

We had a very quiet, relaxing and comfortable stay at Planula. The hosts were most helpful and accomodating. The accomodation was very clean and comfortable. Access to the large kitchen was great. It is a short drive into the hussle and bussle of beautiful Byron. As scuba divers were offered a 10% discount by Sundive and we had a place...

Planula is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful location away from the buzz of Byron. Linda and Phil are very welcoming and hospitable and ensure you stay is everything you want it to be. at just several km's outside of town the accomodation is within easy reach of Byron by bike or taxi...

You couldn't find a nicer , more friendly host and hostess than Linda and Phil. The muffins were to die for and far surpassed those bought at a down town cafe. I couldn't wait for the 2nd breakfast! Clean comfortable suite and a large kitchen for all guests to use. Close enough to the beach and shops but far from...

Was just such a great place to stay... we booked for two nights and couldn't leave so stayed a third! Might have had something to do with the freshly baked muffins for breakfast each morning. Planula is small with only a handful of rooms but each have their own uniquely designed privacy. At first I was a touch nervous about...

5/5 on all criteria. The retreat has a supply of mozzie coils and aerogard, and my sis brought her own repellent, so mozzies are NOT a problem, like I expected them to be. Great location..close enough to all the action, without the noise. Hot water a godsend after a long day. Nicely designed, clean rooms. Communal kitchen and lounge are...

This place is so good. I've been annually at Easter for the last 3 years. Tim and Wandy are fabulous hosts. The guest house is separate from the main house, and has 5 very comfortable guest rooms - all with at least double accommodation (or can be adjusted to suit families or twin beds) and ensuite. There is also a...
