Luxury Accommodation Byron Bay

About the house

Rediscover the art of rest and rejuvenation

Relax, recharge and be inspired by light-filled spaces and ocean views.

Take a dip in the pool, enjoy a good book or connect with friends over a simple meal of fresh, local produce.

Enjoy everything Byron Bay has to offer with a short drive to the centre of town or, a walk to the secluded Tallows Beach.

Nature beckons. Possibilities abound.

This is the art of living. This is Portum.

A contemporary sanctuary

Portum (Latin, noun): A shelter serving as a place of safety or sanctuary

Perched on a ridge just minutes from the heart of Byron, Portum combines luxury, privacy and distinction to create a contemporary sanctuary. 

Inside, the spiral staircase and softly textured Venetian plaster envelop you like a warm embrace. Thoughtful design permeates throughout; the space stilled by the ocean, rendering the atmosphere tranquil and light.

Designed for a graceful connection between indoor and outdoor spaces, the timeless palette riffs on the beauty of the surrounding Arakwal National Park. Each ensuite bedroom captures its own memorable view of the coastline or the Byron Bay hinterland.

Reducing our impact

Portum is built from resilient, low-impact materials that will continue to perform for decades to come. Her curves are sculpted in low-carbon concrete, reducing embodied carbon by 30-60%. Australian-made clay bricks from Krause Bricks are carbon neutral and low emissivity glass allows the home to passively heat and cool itself in the coastal environment.

The house is powered with a 10kw solar system paired with a Tesla charger. Water tanks, a composting system, carbon water filter and sustainably made and sourced bath and home products are in use throughout, ensuring a light footprint for your stay.


Rest, rejuvenate, reconnect

Ideal for small group stays, Portum sleeps eight across four luxurious king-sized ensuite bedrooms. Each of the three levels are linked by the central, sculptural staircase.

A fully equipped designer kitchen with butler’s pantry and two living areas connected to generous outdoor spaces ensure you have plenty of room to relax your way.

It’s the perfect place to reconnect with friends, loved ones… and yourself.

Lower Level

On the lower floor, a sunken lounge with a custom wraparound sofa offers views from the infinity pool, across the national park onto the ocean.


This is a double garage with a Tesla charger. It also houses four foam surfboards for your use on our local beaches. If you enter Portum from the garage you will come in via the lower level.
