Why Jeff Hodgins chose Bangalow
Hidden in the hills behind Byron Bay, the picturesque rural town of Bangalow is as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the appetite. This charming country town in the Byron Shire hinterland offers a slower pace, lots of greenery, along with great food, antiques, galleries, and homewares. For a tiny town, Bangalow punches above its weight in terms of good food, fabulous shopping, yoga retreats and numerous beauty and wellness facilities to help you maximise your chill getaway. And did we mention that Bangalow neighbour Chris Hemsworth has been seen strolling around the main street lately?

Great location, great property and you can walk to all the great shops and restaurants in Bangalow. So quiet at night and remember to look up at the amazing sky at night
Very clean, comfortable and well appointed. We particularly appreciated being able to only stay for one night and to bring our two small dogs.
Thanks Bev. Great you enjoyed your stay. Come back anytime.
Beautiful winter escape
Was such an amazing weekend. Everything is so beautifully decorated, the entire apartment was spotless and there was even some fresh fruit and milk for our stay. It was a cold weekend so we loved having an electric blanket!
We felt very welcome and Jeff gave us great recommendations for places to eat and things to do. My partner and I will hopefully be returning! Bangalow is beautiful and this is such an amazing spot, short walk across road to main Street and markets.
Thanks for staying Kelly. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and weekend, we loved having you. Come back anytime, warm regards, Jeff and Carmel
better days are now past
Probably was probably good sometime ago but now is not looked after, possibly trading on older times ...ie yard untidy, unkempt, and entrance not inviting , laiden with garden potting mix, implements, leaves, pieces of pots etc, and see through roof above outside full of dead old smelly wet leaves.
has a damp dank smell, towels do not smell clean and fresh. and bath mats do not look clean. it is built on ground under house and subject to damp and also to noise from above. disappointing and certainly not worth money being asked for
Hello Ross. Thanks for you feedback...whether positive or negative it is always appreciated. I am surprised you reported such a unique and poor experience. We have had over 400 guests who have stayed with us and your review is the first negative comment of this nature that we have received. We were onsite for the duration of your three day stay and as we were carrying out garden renovations during that time, we were constantly available to you to present your concerns in person. Your verbal feedback at the time of departure suggested that you enjoyed your stay. You were here during a very rainy time in Bangalow and, being a subtropical climate, everything can feel a bit damp without the sun to dry things out. Regarding the leaves, it is Autumn, so they do fall onto the lawn, and especially the Frangipani in the garden and the Wisteria over the patio. We try to stay on top of them but unfortunately not to your standards at this time. I agree with the entrance comments. There were some items related to garden renovations near the walkway to the apartment entrance which were visible. My apologies about that as they should have been put away. Regarding your comment about towels, I can assure you they were perfectly clean as they always are for guests. I am disappointed that you didn't raise your concerns about the towels at the time as they could have been replaced immediately. We enjoy taking great care of our guests’ needs and our intention is always to have a happy guest. It may be prudent to raise any issues with the accommodation manager at the time of your stay rather than wait until you have departed to write a negative review.
The accommodation was fantastic and everything you could ask for.
Thanks Mark It was a pleasure hosting you and Kathy. Come back and stay anytime. Regards, Jeff
Great getaway apartment
Carmel & Jeff know how to welcome their guests and this gorgeous studio was perfect for our weekend away. Immaculately presented, all inclusive with the finer touches. Everything at your fingertips and only a short stroll to all the shops and cafes. I can’t wait to return. Our fur baby Coco loved it too! Thank you so much x
Thanks Maria, you and Coco are most welcome anytime...
