Spend endless summer days at the beach, explore the rock-pools with the kids, surf the many breaks along the coastline, or enjoy stunning coastal walks to Lennox Beach to the north or Sharpes Beach to the south. During winter months, Boulder Beach provides the perfect location to watch the whales migrate along the North Coast.

Relax in sun-loungers by the pool after long days at the beach and enjoy the setting sun in the backyard. Dine alfresco at the outdoor table with private BBQ. Boulders Retreat is perfect for small families, friends or a romantic getaway.

There is another apartment above which is rented separately, however the guests of Boulders Retreat have exclusive use of the pool.

No outside guests are permitted on the premises without pre-arrangement from Holiday Accommodation Management.  The number of occupants must not exceed the number of persons shown on your confirmation.  Any increase in numbers must be agreed in advance and may incur additional fees.

:: Byron Bay Specific

The Holiday Letting Organisation operate a noisy neighbour hotline in Byron Bay who respond to noise complaints by neighbours, residents, and other holiday makers.  If a complaint of excessive noise or anti-social behaviour is received, security will be dispatched to investigate and may result in a $200 charge for call out.  A report will be received by Byron Bay Holiday Rentals with information as to whether a fee has been charged.  This fee will be taken from the guest’s security deposit and is non-negotiable.

If a second security call-out with fee payable is received at any time during a guest’s stay, all guests at the premises will be evicted from the premises by security without refund of rent or bond.

Holiday Accommodation will try to accommodate requests for early check-in/late check-out however they are subject to availability (i.e. other bookings in place, cleaners available to accommodate the request, maintenance schedule) and fees may apply.  Despite any early applications, approval will only be granted 1-2 days prior to entry/departure if available.Early requests do not guarantee early access/late checkout unless a full day’s rate is paid.

Guests are required to contact the appropriate Holiday Accommodate office 1-2 working days prior to the date of the early check-in/late check-out to make final arrangements which will be recorded in the booking details. 

Keys will be available at the property upon arrival. Guests will be provided with details of the key location and/or access codes via email after final payment has been made (and a credit card is on file for bond for fully managed properties).

A security bond of $1000 ($500 if the property is a studio or one bedroom, up to $5000 for function bonds, or $250 per person for schoolies bookings (processed as one transaction)) will be processed 1-3 working days prior to check-in for all fully-managed properties.  The bond will be processed as a pre-authorisation on the guest’s previously nominated credit card (we do not accept bank transfers or cash for bond payments unless by special arrangement).  The funds will be frozen by the guest’s issuing bank for a period of 7-10 working days and will be automatically released as long as there are no issues during the stay.  Once released, the funds will become available on the guest’s card again, and there will not be a transaction on the credit card statement.  

Bond deductions are rare, however when they occur, Holiday Accommodation will advise the guest of details of any charges and these will appear on the guest’s statement. Considerable administration is required and a $50 fee will apply.  

Where Holiday Accommodation is the booking agent only, bond arrangements will be made directly between the guest and the managing entity of the property and may be up to $5000 depending on the property. Contact details for the managing entity will be provided to the guest accordingly.

A $55 non-refundable booking fee will be applied to all bookings.
