Power couple Mikaela Lancaster (Spotify Australia head) and her husband Mark Britt (founder of video streaming platform iflix) have bought a holiday home in the Byron Bay hinterland.
The couple has emerged as the $9.5 million buyers of the luxury Federal property Amileka.
Known as the Love Island house, having played host to the Channel 9 dating show for season three in 2017, the 10ha estate was designed by architect Sharon Fraser.

It has five bedrooms, a sunken lounge, a kitchen with statement stone island bench, honed concrete floors and glass wrapped interiors.
The building’s green initiatives include solar hydronic underfloor heating in its polished cement floor and on-site waste management.
There’s a fire pit area and an 18m pool.
The white box minimalist architectural-style home, which subsequently won the Australian Institute of Architects (NSW Country Division) Architecture Award, is a single-level house built in 2006 for Fraser’s partner Steve Esson.
Tom Lane, of the Lane family that founded the Oroton fashion empire, and his stylist wife Emma bought Amileka for $4 million in 2011.
They sold in 2015 for $3.5 million to the Johnson family, the recent vendors.
It sold some four months after being listed with an $11.5 million to $12.5 million guide through McGrath Byron Bay agents Nick Duke and Ollie Charkos.
Lancaster and Britt traded their $10.25 million Clareville waterfront for a sprawling Federation home in Croydon in Sydney’s inner west, which was bought last year at a then record $4.75 million.
