Can't believe the AMAZING deal we received! The service was fabulous! I would love to stay when the weather is warm so I could actually use the pool, it looked great. The beach house would suit up to 5 people so with only 2 of us we had lots of room! It was spacious & private. Obviously a male designed... More

We had the most beautiful apartment and great service - absolutely nothing to write negatively about. A little out of town, but that was just right as we didn't want to be in the hustle and bustle of it all. The beach was literally across the road - a magnificent walk into town along the main beach. Perfect and the... More

East on Byron was in a fabulous location, about a 10 min walk from the centre of Byron and right across from the belongil beach. What really made this place fabulous was the Belongil Bistro out the front, the Treehouse woodfired pizza restaurant two doors down and the ample living space in the apartments. For a family, there aren't many... More

The penthouse apartment was on the ground floor but that did not detract from the spacious and well appointed accommodation. The beach was less than 100 metres away and it was only a short walk to Byron Bay township. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom penthouse. There was plenty of room and the apartment was fantastic for a family of 5. The staff were friendly and helpful. The spa at the pool was great for the kids. Being straight across the road from the beach was very convenient for walks and swimming. Would definitely stay here again.

Depending on (i) your budget, and (ii) specifically whether you want to stay right in town, you could easily describe East on Byron as one of the best hotel/resorts to stay in Byron. If you were to base your selection (out of many great alternatives) in Byron purely on appearances on the hotel website, you probably wouldn't bother. The rooms... More

We stayed for five nights and thought it was great (although we were expecting it to be great based on the price). We had a poolside villa (apartment technically). The floor plan was well suited to a 2 adult and 2 kid stay as the living area is massive and nicely appointed with wooden floors and nice looking but hard... More

This is a nice place but if you're planning to share with others be warned there are no bedroom doors. Given we were in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom place with double beds it would be reasonable to assume it's set up for couples, but it's not.

Dear Valued Guest, We are sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your choice of accommodation. The Beach House you stayed in is set up as a two story open planned style of accommodation, meaning there are no lockable doors in the bedrooms. The Beach houses are really popular with families but if you’re looking for more privacy we... More

Just a 2 minute stroll from the beach, this was in a great location. Only a 15 minute walk along the beach to the centre of Byron. The apartment was very spacious and well kept. We had a garage for our hire car, and two balconies, one with a BBQ and an upper one for catching some sun. Very friendly... More
