Arrive and after a very personal welcome just disconnect and relax. Blackbird is everything depicted in the pics..nothing misleading there.. you won't be disappointed. James, Stella and their crew make you feel like family welcomed home for a well earned break. Nothing pretentious, just a well considered environment to enjoy...just far enough away from Byron but not that far to make you feel isolated. Plenty to see, do, eat within 25 min or come to be self sufficient, if you do desire, with the excellent facilities James and Stella have provided. A stay at Blackbird? Something you will never regret!read more

I have never left an online review before, but Blackbird was so special I felt I had to say something. We spent two nights at Blackbird and they were absolutely glorious. Time seems to stand still when you are on the property and the views offered are so incredible they honestly took my breath away when my partner and I first arrived. And the choice to watch the sunrise over the vistas was one we will always cherish. But what is a place without people, the hospitality by owners James & Stella was truly amazing. They provide the soul and life to blackbird and over and above everything else will be the reason we will definitely coming back.read more

The perfect escape from reality. Greeted by lovely hosts and a glass of Champagne. Cheese boards by the fire overlooking the hinterlands and out across the ocean. Swims and saunas. The most spectacular sunrise from your comfy bed followed by a delicious breakfast. I couldn’t ask for anything more from a weekend away. Only wish I could’ve stayed longer. Thanks James and Stella - I looked forward to staying with you again soonread more

Highly recommended. We had a wonderful stay at this 5star retreat in the hills. It’s far enough away for total relaxation but close enough to do lots of nice stuff like dining, music & other experiences. James and Stella are excellent hosts, the freshly made breakfast each morning was delicious and the pool/sauna (even in winter!) was fabulous. We loved sitting around the fire drinking red wine and taking in the glorious views. Brilliant.read more

Our stay at Blackbird far surpassed our expectations on all counts. Our host James went beyond the norm to make sure we were comfortable and happy. Waking up to the breathtaking sunrise view from our bed in the morning was amazing and what a treat it was to observe the Black Cockatoos in the trees above. Also, we throughly enjoyed all of the tasty meals cooked for us at the hotel. We’ll be back. Al & Fran.read more

Blackbird was an absolute gem in every way imaginable. The nature in which its nestled, the self-appointed rooms that are so beautifully designed and furnished, the faultless service from two very down to earth individuals, and the list keeps going... This was an outstanding find and is the best injection of rest and relaxation we've had in a long time. A special mention needs to be made of the breathtaking and uninterrupted view of the most amazing sunrise that you wake up to above the hills, in the horizon. Thank you James and Stella for creating this unique space for us city dwellers to truly unwind.read more
