A great place to wake up to the rising sun and sounds of the surf - right on the beach and a 10 minute sandy stroll into Byron. The villa was neat, clean, and stocked with everything one could need for a beach-side stay. Wif-fi, TV, full kitchen, dishwasher, Washer/Dryer, A/C, awesome deck - its all there. School holidays probably... More

We had a short stay here and hope to come back again for a longer visit. The position is perfect with the surf and beach at your door step and Byron Bay a pleasant walk or short drive away. Ian was very helpful and welcoming.

We are currently coming to the end of our stay at Beach Belles @ Bluewater on the Beach and it's been perfect ! Ian had suggested ordering any groceries/wine/beer online prior to our arrival, which we did, and when we arrived he had unpacked these ready for us ! Our accommodation is very private, great for us and our kids... More

Would love to come back here. Ian the manager is friendly and helpful. It's really a great place to relax, fish, swim & surf. Our cottage was comfortable with lots of places to have naps! They do need to spend money on supplying some decent crockery - 3 scratchy old mugs is a bit cheeky for the price.

Thank you for taking your time to right a review. We value our customer reviews and your suggestions greatly. Due to the fact that our occupancy rate is so high from the success of the property some small things are hard to maintain on a regular basis. We very much appreciate you bringing this to our attention so we can... More

We have been to Byron Bay a number of times and can't believe we hadn't found this place sooner! This will be our go-to place in Byron from now on. It is far enough out of the town to feel the peace and quiet but a beautiful 15 minute walk along the beach. I loved being on Belongil beach. It... More

We had an amazing three night stay at Bluewater. We spent our time cruising the beach on the bikes available on site, surfing right in front of the property and enjoying the relaxed nature of the accomodation. The service was great and we will definitely be back to stay.

Perfect location. Setting is beautiful. Cabins are very nicely laid out and provide some privacy. We would recommend that the cabins furnishings are upgraded as some items were fairly weathered, mostly due to the close proximity to the ocean. Another suggestion is perhaps more cupboard space upstairs. Otherwise a beautiful place and pretty sure we will go back one day.

OK, it's a little pricey but if you're looking for a truly relaxing holiday with the beach right on your doorstep... it's worth every cent. The accommodation itself may not be 5 star luxury but if that's what you want, go to a resort and forgo the views. Basically, what you're paying for here is an experience rather than material...

We do an annual stay at BlueWater ..... best stay in Byron, just far enough out of town to release, but a short 10 mins stroll along to the beach to our favourite places in the town centre. Nothing is too much trouble for the onsite management team, supply surfboards, bikes and all things beach as part of your stay.... More
