We have just returned from staying at the Crest Apartments with my family and would highly recommend it anyone. The staff were very friendly and helpful, with some good recommendations on local restaurants/places to visit. The apartment was very comfortable and clean- open planned and great for our family of four. The pool area is really good and great for... More

Stayed here in November 2014 for a couple of nights and it was fab. Very clean and a great place to stay at. Lovely pool and right near the city and beach. I would recommend staying there 100%. Owners were fantastic as well. A great place to bring your family as well so very relaxing.

We stayed 3 nights here in August and had a wonderful time. The staff were excellent, very welcoming, with great recommendations of local places to go with our 2 kids. The apartment was lovely, very well laid out and comfortable. Our first night was quite chilly but the flat was cosy and homely in the evenings. We would definitely stay... More

Cooking facilities if you need it and a washer and dryer. You can pop thro the back of the property to the beach. It's a... More

We stayed in apartment number 5 (Mata Hari) at The Crest, Shirley St, Byron Bay. Excellent booking and confirmation service through www.destinationbyronbay.com.au and our apartment was super clean, tastefully decorated and conveniently located about 8 mins walk from town centre. Good size for a couple and I appreciated having a washer and dryer and ceilings fans in two mains rooms... More

I had a lovely stay at the Crest. The staff were friendly and helpful and the apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped.. It was a short walk into the main part of Byron and close to the beach. The complex was very quiet and the pool area was so relaxing. The price was also very reasonable. I would definitely... More

Family of 4 stayed in a 2 bedroom villa during latter part of Jan school hols. We found the location worked very well, the apartments & surrounds very well maintained and quiet. The in room facilities worked well (good size TV) and the BBQ by the pool area clean and never too crowded. The underground car park meant no early... More

Stayed a week and found the accommodation perfect for our little family (2 kids age 1 & 2). We had a 2 storey villa, it was dated but that didn't worry us. Clean, enough space and great layout, the private enclosed courtyard is perfect for kids, they can go in and out and you can see them easily. The villas... More

We just returned from an 11-night stay at Crest Apartments - we stayed in apartment #20 which is a privately owned rental called Villa Aitutaki. The villa is absolutely lovely - the decor is more modern and tasteful than the regular rooms at Crest, but also a little more expensive; $270/nt in late Jan/Feb. The villa was our little haven...
