This is our third viisit to Byron Bay in recent years and these apartments are by far the best accommodation. Apartment 1 made us feel like we were in our home away from home,. Very clean, comfortable, roomy, everything you need in the kitchen and bathroom and great showers. Location is prefect across the road from the main beach and... More

This was our first family visit to Byron Bay, and we couldn't have been recommended a better place to stay. Right on the beach front, a beautiful and comfortable apartment - great kitchen and good facilities. Our kids loved the tennis court and access to town for book shops and eating out on rainy days was great. Thanks Phil and... More

We have stayed here three times now and in two types of apartment. Location couldn't be better. Marie and Phil really do care and their service level is high. The apartments don't all have the same owners so do be careful when booking because decor and level of renovation vary. We highly recommend apt 9. We love the pool, tennis... More

Location is across the street from the beach. It is also quiet because the main traffic does not pass in front. Well layed out apartment. The kitchen is excellent. The apartments are tired and need refurbishing. If you want late check out ask on booking. They only give out a certain number each morning.

We usually stay at Wategos but given that it was winter we thought our teenage children would need to balance beach time with other activities so we selected a town location on the beach - it was perfect. The manager (Marie) was extremely helpful and assisted me to choose the ideal apartment and also kindly provided our children with tennis... More

Great location, great apartments with a major exception... The bed in apartment 16 is so uncomfortable I ended up sleeping on the couch! The base is broken and the mattress is well in need of an update. The couch is not much better but a least I could sleep on it. At 7 months pregnant it is not what I... More

We are a little confused as to the contents of this review, firstly, whilst a staff member was setting the apartment when you arrived, by no means did this create a delay, you were checked in, went down to park and by the time you came back from the car park the apartment was ready for you to walk in...

We stayed for 9 nights in apartment 12. Lovely and spacious. The queen size bed was perfect but the two singles were far too short for adult sized people. It would have been good to be able to get an extra roll away bed but was not allowable. There was a lot of outside street noise but expected that. Staff... More

Hi Lyn, Thank you for taking the time to review us on trip advisor, we appreciate the feedback. The complex as a whole have chosen to implement a rule to have no roll ways or extra mattresses in the apartments, the beds provided are all that we can offer our guests. We appreciate this is not always convenient, but we... More

When we first arrived we went to have a cuppa all the cups had black stuff inside them - most of the crockery had to be hand washed and several kitchen items were broken. Not good enough when you pay nearly $400 per night. But great position straight acorss from the beach.

We do apologise as two cups were brought to reception that were not in an acceptable state, however upon further inspection of the apartment once this was brought to our attention, we did not find any cracked or broken crockery or any other dirty items. We have reminded our cleaning contractors that they need to thoroughly check all items in... More

My family and I stayed in apartment 7 for 3 nights.. Everything felt quite old and used. There were 6 of us and we had two cars but only one of the garage remotes worked... The manager knew about this but didn't really offer any apology and only having one remote was really inconvenient. The kitchen wasn't very clean and... More

The good news is that this apartment now has a new owner who has the full intention of renovating it completely. If you wish to contact us directly (please mention this trip advisor correspondence...
