Above the Pass is a modern beach house with a gorgeous timber, coastal feel throughout. The house is perfectly perched just above the world famous Pass surf break and surrounded by pleasant tropical gardens. One of the homes best features is the floor to ceiling glass doors and windows that just flood the living room with natural sunlight and the polished timber floors compliment the stylish modern furnishings throughout.

The home offers an interesting yet functional layout - perfect for holidays - whether you are a family or a small group of friends sharing the home. The central well-equipped kitchen serves the lovely lounge room, the decks and or the private patio area. There is a range of areas to entertain and eat in or relax at any time of the day.

The lounge and living areas enjoy a beautiful north aspect with ocean views that extend across the Bay and to the hinterland ranges beyond. The sunsets are quite spectacular as well.

A short stroll downhill and you are at The Pass and Clarkes Beach. If you are feeling energetic, the Cape Byron Walking Track up to the Lighthouse Reserve is just across the street. The Pass Cafe is just 2 minute walkaway and perfect for morning coffee or lunch after a swim. The boardwalk will also take you all the way into town.

Guests have loved the true modern beach home appeal of Above the Pass together with its relaxed furnishings and wonderful outlook. A very popular spot to stay.

Please note there is a separate 2 bedroom house at the back of the property that uses the double garage.

Perfect for longer stays, a home office away from home!

What an amazing home! Views, amenities galore and literally across the road from The Pass beach. A truly magical tropical hideaway. Will definitely be. Ack.

stunning location and house

Giulia Conti - 5th September 2022

we truly enjoyed every aspect of "above the Pass", beautiful architecturally designed house and perfect location for those who want to be close to the beach, nature and walks.

Perfect location

Anne Joun - 21st March 2022

A wonderful house with plenty of space for my family. The location is perfect. We were impressed with the house’s layout, cleanliness and ease of communication with East Coast Escape. Highly recommended.

Great house and location

Jenny Blaxland - 14th July 2021

Perfect location and beautiful view; the house is a midpoint between the lighthouse and town. The house was perfect for our stay. Fully outfitted kitchen and laundry, and comfortable bedrooms. If you are lucky, the kookaburras will visit and perch on the balcony. The hosts were very responsive and easy to work with. Can’t wait to return!

Treetops Escape

Vincent Gray - 13th June 2021

We had the most enjoyable stay. We loved the location, right on the walking track to the light house and close to walk into town via the beaches. A large and spacious home to book for the best holiday ever.

Above the pass - great house!

Heather Campbell - 28th May 2021

We really enjoyed our stay at “above the pass” - particularly the location - across the road from the best tracks down to Wategos and the lighthouse. Sarah was very proactive in meeting my requests if at all possible within the constraints of the rental terms.

Byron bliss

My family, including two kids, loved our stay here right above the most beautiful beach in the world! From breakfast on the deck with kookaburras, to the soft waves crashing in the evening... loved every minute and would return!
