We stayed here last Christmas and have returned for another 9 nights. This place is beautifully appointed and most importantly, directly across from the beach. You can lie in bed and watch the sea. Apartment two is on the ground floor and has light, beachy furnishings with white marble bathroom. The kitchen has every utensil you could want and the... More

My husband and I have spent 12 days here over Christmas and New Years. Wow. This place has breathtaking views of the beach, the one bedroom unit is smallish but has everything you need- from kitchen to beach chairs to umbrellas etc. It's beautifully appointed - I love the white marble bathroom and the relaxed, beachy furnishings. You can see... More

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary in September 2013 staying at the Watermark. Perfect unit in the most perfect location made it a magical long weekend. Definitely worth paying the extra to stay in the one bedroom self contained unit upstairs with breathtaking views. The unit is comfortable and relaxing with everything that you could possibly...

The location sets the expectation. Watego Beach located in the Palm Valley below the Cape Byron lighthouse is a superb location - it has been rated as one of the top 20 beach locations in the world. Watermark is situated across the road from the beach. The quality of the accommodation and fitout, as well as the standards to which... More

We stayed here in early September this year in the apartment upstairs with a direct view of the beach. Beautiful apartment with a well equipped kitchen and plenty of light. Definitely had a nice homely feel about with lots of little touches and it was lovely to be able to see and hear the beach as it was only a... More

Watermark at Wategos is just a beautiful place to stay, simply breathtaking. The beach is one of the best in Australia. The rooms are private and very comfortable with a real touch of class. I want to revisit and highly recommend to anyone that enjoys quality.

We stayed in one of the beachfront suites and were really happy with the Watermark, check-in was easy and the room was very clean and nicely presented. Plus you cant beat the location! My only criticism (and this is really grasping at straws!) was that the room was smaller than what I was expecting. I would definitely recommend this place,... More

We stayed 5 nights at Watermark in the upstairs Oceanview apartment last week to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The view and outlook are just as stunning as on the website. The bedroom furnishings have been updated since the website photo and are even better. The building comprises of a private residence with the two room Oceanview apartment upstairs and directly...

I surprised my partner with a surpise weekend getaway to Byron Bay and spent quite some time looking for the perfect spot. I am pleased to say that I was extremely happy with the Watermark. The location is perfect, right opposite the beach. There are 3 apartments to choose from, 2 studio apartments on the ground floor and 1 ocean... More

The place to stay if you really want to get away from the noisy, unpleasant man made jungle of city living. A gorgeous beach with a really exclusive feel about it and we had it all to ourselves while swimming early on a thursday morning in water that was like green glass! With the lighthouse so close there is plenty... More
