Enjoy the tranquil sanctuary of Karuna and allow its charms to relax and reinvigorate you.Karuna is a Tibetan word alluding to appreciating the immanence of life as a path to living a happy present life.
Karuna's architecture seeks to capture the old spirit of Byron. It is understated and designed to sit lightly on the earth where rainforest merges with ocean.
The gardens are designed to create a natural extension of the original rainforest on the west side of the house, right to its steps. The rocks and pebbles have been placed to mimic a rainforest riverbed.
Karuna is situated just a few steps from the cul-de-sac beach path to magnificent Tallow Beach.
Wander down with a dawn coffee or sunset libation to check out the famous surf breaks or scan for the plentiful whales and dolphins . Otherwise, stroll 5 minutes south along the beach - look for the wide opening in the beach dunes, walk inland a few metres, and discover a pristine Ti Tree lake of deep cultural importance to the local Bundjalung people.
At the very southern end of Tallow Beach, is Broken Head. From there, turn left to the car park and you'll see signs to a coastal path along the spectacular headlands and hidden beaches of beautiful Arakwal National Park. It's an easy walk with stunning views of the Byron coastline (bring footwear as some of the path stones can be sharp on bare soles).
For the less active, simply lie back on the lounge and contemplate the rainforest view where you'll occasionally see wallabies, possums, monitors, pythons, frogs and abundant bird life.
There is so much more to discover in this special part of the world - the more you relax the more you'll see.

We booked this property over the new years break with our family. This home was spectacular, we have access to beach only 1min walk from your doorstep, we also thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the location was perfect. Walkable distance to the local shops and cafes. It was a super easy to check in and we felt like we were transported to a private villa surrounded by beautiful greenery and peace and quiet. We will definitely come back and rebook this place for another weekend getaway (Aycha, December 2022).
