After many days travelling, our family was delighted to pitch up at BOTB. Great accommodation (despite being a little worn around the edges), perfect quiet position by the beach, and good access to a local restaurant and also a bistro. Ian helped us settle in and gave us all the info. I suspect we'll be going back at some stage!

We've just come back from our second stay at Bluewater and this is has become the first choice to get out of town for a relaxing holiday. Everything about Ian's places is perfectly setup for a totally chilled out break. The location is great. Close enough to Byron to pop into town for supplies, but away from the town centre... More

Wow.... What a location. Huge thank you to Ian and Jan for such lovely hospitality on this beautiful property. Spent 9 days here in September and lived every minute of it. Mornings spent swimming at Belongil, afternoons perched on the day beds and nights by the fire pit overlooking the beach. Perfect location for a peaceful break. Cannot recommend highly... More

In June we spent a very happy couple days at Bluewater. The weather was perfect, we loved being right on the sand, within sauntering distance to Byron, walked to lunch at Rae's, walked to pizza place for dinner round the corner. Ian could not have been more accommodating, offering us wet suits, boards etc and if we had wanted can... More

Peaceful and relaxing ... In the afternoon, I enjoyed sitting on the day bed looking at the view with some wine and cheese while in the evening the outside fire was such a treat. Belongil Beach is quiet and stunning so I felt refreshed and energized after my weekend at Bluewater. I'm looking forward to return and falling asleep to... More

Just returned home from Blue Water on the Beach and found it to be the perfect balance of all the creature comforts and a chilled beach life. You're located a perfect 15 minute stroll along the beach to everything Byron has to offer but feel wonderfully secluded on what feels like your own private stretch of heaven. Ian and the... More

There are very few places in Byron where you can sit on a private grassy lawn overlooking the ocean all the while warming your toes over a fire pit and watching the sunset. Blue Water offers all of this! Lifesaver is lovely and has everything you could ask for. the property is walking distance to Byron center and just over... More

For three years in a row, I have booked with Ian at Bluewater on the Beach. Let me repeat myself: three years in a row. I normally never do this - repeat myself. I do here, at Bluewater on the Beach.

This was our third visit to Bluewater On The Beach (staying at Laila's cottage) and it was, again, perfect in every way. The cottage is very comfortable and fitted out with everything we needed, and Ian lent us two boogie boards and a pile of beach towels, so we were all set for the beach! The property has a lovely...

After a mix up with a booking agent we turned up to find we had no booking. This was our 30th annv and the shock on our faces must have been noticed by Anthony who greeted us. To calm things down we went for lunch only to be called by Anthony with an offer of another appartment. It was perfect.... More
