Halcyon House Hotel



A former surf motel turned breezy boutique hideaway. That’s Halcyon House in a nutshell. A little over an hour from Brisbane – via Byron Bay – you’ll find the family-run pad poised perkily on Carabita Beach. A design darling at heart, its crisp white facade yields to reveal 22 well-dressed rooms offering home-from-home appeal with an eclectic edge: think bold textiles, antique furniture and vibrant paintwork, all backed by a sense of carefree, mid-century Americana meets new-wave Aussie rusticity. A vibey pool area, pretty, concise spa complete with hammam and award-winning restaurant serving laid-back modern Australian flavours complete the picture. A choice pick for exploring the Tweed region of New South Wales.
