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

Thanks Annette for a great review. Our Villa's are very popular with Families - the extra room of the courtyard and the private gate to the pool is great for the kids. We hope to see you and Jim and the kids back here again soon. 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

We had an amazing Easter long weekend at The Crest. Doug and Di were so wonderful and helpful with plenty of local knowledge. The apartment was great. The pool was perfection and the apartments are just a short walk to the beach. We also hired some bikes to ride around Byron. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend. We are... More

A large group of us (eight people) attended a wedding during March in the Byron area and stayed at the Crest in two two br apartments. Check in was a breeze and Di and Doug made our stay very comfortable. The apartments was very clean and also quiet despite being next to the main access road to Byron Bay. Location... More

Thank you Nirvana for such a good review. Location is very important to people considering staying with us and you summed it up very well. As we say we are close enough to enjoy everything in Byron but far enough away from the crowds for quiet relaxing. We hope to see you and your wife & friends back in Byron... More

My wife and I stayed there for 4 nights in late March. The room was very modern and well equipped as a self contained 1 bedroom unit. Comfortable and quiet with all facilities. We had a balcony overlooking the pool/barbecue areas which were meticulously cared for. The Crest turned out to be an 8-10 minute leisurely stroll to the shops... More

Nothing was a problem for Doug and Di and every inch of the complex was very neat and tidy. This was out fourth trip to Byron and our first experience at the Crest. Perfectly located close to...

Both my partner and I have been visiting Byron bay for the past 5 years, and every year there is no doubt about where we are going to be staying. The Crest Byron Bay has everything you need, the apartments are always maintained to a high standard, and the location is perfect. Di and Doug are genuinely good people who... More

We can't fault The Crest in any way, apart from perhaps the weather! (When we stayed cyclone Marcia(?) gave a couple of days of rain.) This was our 8th trip to Australia and The Crest is the best place we have ever stayed. Every morning we'd see Doug testing the pool water quality also making sure everywhere was clean and... More

Thank you Oarsman that review was Oarsome! - Sorry couldn't resist!! Thanks also for noticing the effort we put into making sure everything is clean and tidy for everyone.
