My two daughters and I stayed in a one-bedroom apartment for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Doug and Di were so friendly, helpful and accomodating and made our stay most comfortable. The apartment was clean, well equipped and easy to access from the underground car park as well as the street. The pool area is nice and whilst... More

Nice 1 bed apartment good value. About 500m walk from beaches is annoying though. Also building work beside them in the new house is annoying as well but not their fault. Lovely couple running it and good location about 700 m from the crazy town centre. Nice bedroom. Good fold out couch from freedom. Good kitchen.

We spent 7 nights in a one bedroom apartment and had a very comfortable, enjoyable stay. The location is fantastic. It is a very easy walk into the town area where all the eateries and shops are. Another short walk away is a beautiful secluded part of the beach. It’s a really clean beach with some waves and not nearly... More

No free WiFi except in garage and could not be fixed in four days that we were there. Also very noisy in the mornings due to building works next door. Other facilities were OK and clean. About 10 minute walk to beach or town.

Angelo as we did whilst you were here we again apologize for the Wi-Fi. Byron is a small town and so technical services are limited. We have had someone replace a faulty cable and this has fixed the problem. The construction next door was a bit noisy whilst you were here but that was because of a particular process they... More

Located only few minutes walk from the main town area and the beach. The hosts Di and Doug are super friendly and run the place so efficiently. We stayed in a one-bedroom apartment which was very specious and had everything and more than we needed. The swimming pool is great. We would definitely go back and I would highly recommend... More

Thanks Gordanamusic for posting such a lovely review. I'm sure it will be helpful for people looking online and trying to decide where to stay in Byron Bay. Re the Wi-Fi - the service is slow but that is really because we are a country town with a fairly antiquated exchange. Hopefully when the "all singing all dancing" NBN arrives... More

We stayed for a long weekend in January. The management was fantastic - accommodating to changes in our group size and schedule and always willing to help with local activities. Our room was comfortable and the rooms were in a great location for access to other friends in town and the beach. We could walk or bike everywhere. They rent... More

Thank you WK for taking the time to post a review it is much appreciated. Thanks for mentioning the rental bikes - they are very popular with guests with many people rediscovering the fun and riding a "pushy" around town. Of course after riding it is nice to relax around our beautiful pool!! We look forward to welcoming you back... More

Recently stayed (13-17 Jan) with my two kids (9+6) in a 2 brm villa and I must say it was fantastic. The villa was clean and very comfortable. The location was perfect, an easy stroll into town and beaches. Even can access a beach at the back of the property. The pool was great also and secure undercover parking is... More

Thank you John F for your excellent review. We feel we have the best of both worlds here with such a nice pool area and being so close to the beach. We find the kids staying here enjoy the "adventure" of walking through the bush tracks to the beach. We look forward to welcoming you back again - soon we... More
