If you’re looking for Byrons best holiday rental then look no further! Benclua is a secluded cottage retreat hidden amongst macadamia trees on Eureka’s Plateau. This 1890’s homestead is the picture perfect location for a private getaway. Nestled in Bangalows’ rolling landscape on six acres, the recently renovated homestead boasts room to sleep 12 and all the technology and facilities you need to holiday in comfort. Including heated floors, automatic evening lighting, aircon/heating, complimentary WIFI and a trampoline for the kids.
Bencluna is a 20-minute drive through rolling pastures to Byron Bay and its’ surrounding beaches, 5-minutes from the town of Bangalow itself and only 10 minutes to Clunes and Federals, some of NSW oldest towns which are steeped in history.
The loft contains a 2-bed twin room and a kid’s room with two single bunk beds; TV, movies, games, beanbags and more to ensure children are kept well entertained and catered for.

The open dining room can seat 10 -12 people around a recycled Elm Tree dining table with a study and sunroom adjoined through the door at the far end.
The kitchen is large and contains all the utensils and basic kitchenware one would need. Large windows open up to the outside dining and BBQ area and doors on two other walls open up as well creating a beautiful indoor / outdoor flow.
The bathroom is situated at the other end of the dining room and houses a beautiful stand-alone bathtub looking out over the property as well as a shower, toilet and double sink bench.
Outside there is a separate laundry cottage, an outdoor toilet as well as an extra cabin and bathroom, sleeping two. This can be rented at an additional cost if more space is needed.
With its unique location, architecture and interior design, Bencluna at Byron was welcoming and homely whilst remaining utterly stylish. Its location allowed us to feel lost in nature whilst still being close to all necessary towns and attractions. It was the perfect place for a relaxing weekend getaway spent reading, hiking and swimming at the beach.
Wonderland Escapes was a guest of Bencluna, however my opinions are, as always my own.
