Had a great two night stay at the Akoona cottage & could have happily stayed a week!. The location is great, peaceful and private but still only a short drive into Byron. Was nice to have fully dog friendly accommodation where the dog can stay inside, with linen/towels even provided for your canine companions. Owners are very friendly and helpful,... More

The photos dont do this place justice, seriously this place is gorgeous, the accommodation is fantastic, it is outstandingly clean and the most wonderful surprise of all is the fabulous service.

I stayed in the studio with my two dogs. This is a true dog friendly place to stay and a rare gem. The studio has everything you need. And even better - it's super clean. Spotless. Dogs are allowed INSIDE and you can even leave them in there while you go out shopping/exploring/ect. So rare to be allowed to do... More

The Abbiente property is just like a paradise in the rainforest. We stayed in the Akoonah Cottage on this visit - myself, my son and my beagle. The cottage is well appointed being self contained with everything you could need (including dog treats!) and is quite private as are the studio and the house also on the property. The property...

We loved our weekend away at the cottage, so peaceful, everything you could need and super dog friendly. Just the right distance from Byron, can pop in if you want but nice and far away from the crowds. We had only been home for 2 days before we booked again! Thanks Cathy!

A tranquil retreat! The Akoonah studio is lovely, bright and spacious. The property is full of trees, birds, frogs, echidnas, and every site has its own privacy. Thoughtful conveniences have been provided (olive oil in the kitchen!). Immaculately clean and unpretentious. Cathy and her dogs were friendly but unintrusive. Close to Byron but without the noise, schoolies and hefty price... More

A wonderful hidden hut in the middle of the rainforest complete with a hammock on your own private balcony. Went there to unwind from the city for a couple of days and it was perfect. The studio is bigger than expected, quiet, impecably clean complete with all mod cons. Best value for money I found in a long time. Would... More

A lovely secluded setting, quiet & tranquil. We spent a very enjoyable weekend here with our dog. Very comfortable accommodation with all the comforts of home. The owners (Leonard & Cathy) are great dog lovers, so your pooch will be most welcome. Short distance to Byron giving you the best of both worlds. Lovely bush walks right outside your front... More

Peace & quiet was what we were hoping for & that's what we got! Our 2 dogs were made so welcome & even had there own complimentary dog treat awaiting them!
