Loved the relaxed, peaceful environment created at the Crest. The apartments are large, clean and with everything you need and all are beautifully positioned looking out on well maintained tropical gardens and pool. Thank you Dianne and Doug for your hospitality and warm welcome and we will be returning soon 😀

What a great place! Clean, roomy and well equipped apartment. Close enough to walk to town and beaches. Doug and Di - best hosts I have ever encountered. Anything you need they will gladly provide. Cheers.

The Crest Apartments were a pleasure to stay at. A casual stroll from the centre of Byron and its wonderful beach, the apartments are more like a low-rise modern apartment block with on site caretakers to look after any problems which may arise. The development has been kept in tip top condition and really feel like a home away from... More

Thanks Henry for your lovely review - we really appreciate it. We are in a great location so close to town and the beach and to make things even better we are undertaking a major renovation. All apartments are being repainted and new carpets installed in the bedrooms so the apartments are going to be fresh and looking fabulous. We... More

Ideally suited for couples who want some privacy at the same time short walk to the beach and shops. The rooms and kitchen are well furnished, the hosts are attentive to your requests. Easy and secure parking underground which is a plus for this location. Ideal for families on vacation with children, units with sofa beds.

Thank you Albert for your review it is really appreciated. Yes our apartments are quite large and with a separate bedroom even in the 1 bed apartments - so you have the space to spread out and relax.

We have stayed at the The Crest Byron Bay every Easter for Bluesfest for the last 6 years, it feels like our Byron home. It is very thoughtfully designed, in that you feel at times no one else is there despite being high season. All the rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained. The beds are comfortable too. The pool... More

Doug and Di were really welcoming in their hospitality. They made us feel very relaxed and we really felt like we were on holiday. The apartments and pool are lovely, well kept with beautiful gardens. This apartment is close to the beach and close to town.

My husband, boys and myself stayed here for 5 nights the week before Easter. We had a 2 bedroom villa, which was just perfect. We had our own private yard and outdoor area, easy access to the pool, short, easy walk to the shops and beach. The rooms were well planned, lots of room, clean and neat. We had a... More

Ideally located only a five minute walk from the main street of Byron Bay, well maintained rooms and very friendly and helpful owners. Salt water pool made for a nice swim each morning. I would definitely stay there again.

Thanks Chris for such a lovely review. We have fired up the pool heater again now so we have the pool at a beautiful 28 degrees - perfect for early morning swims now that the mornings are getting a bit cooler. Hopefully we will see you again soon. More
