Great place to stay and unwind. We had apartment 5 which was quiet as it is at the back of complex - quite modern with a lovely spacious lounge and plasma TV, a nice front corner patio overlooking bbq area as well as a covered patio at rear with wonderful breezes which kept the whole place cool.

Hi, Thank you for your great review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in Apartment 5. Our back 2 bedroom apartments all have courtyards that get that lovely sea breeze to cool things off on a hot day. The kitchen bin is located under the sink in that apartment – you must of missed finding it. We hope to... More

We had one of the 2 bed apartments at the rear of the complex. Modern and clean apartment with access from front and back doors providing 2 outdoor living spaces and awesome air flow through. Great space for the kids, although the pool was a little small but warm and clean. Would definitely stay here again, provided we had a... More

Thank you for your review and we are happy your family had a great stay. The 2 bedroom apartments with the back courtyards are great for kids as they are so secure and do get that afternoon sea breeze. The apartments in our front section also have 2 big balconies and half of them now have double glazing which minimizes... More

Great location, walking distance to town and beach. Our 3 bedroom apartment was great, lots of space and nice and modern, all decks overlook the pool, my only advice would be to ask for an apartment on the beach side, we were on the roadside and their was lots of road noise in the rooms on that side, other than...

Thank you for your review. It’s great you liked the apartment and enjoyed your stay. Guests are always quite surprised at how big our apartments are, especially the 3 bedroom ones. Shirley Street can get quite busy but now 50% of our apartments have now been upgraded to have double glazing and the rest we hope will be completed by... More

Great location- 10 mins walk into town. A well fitted out apartment with nice, comfortable rooms. Functional kitchen. Perfect for a small group or family. This review requires 200 characters so I would also say the pool looked nice though we didn't use it!

Myself and 3 other friends stayed 5 nights in one of the 3 bedroom apartments. They were great. Not much quiet time by the pool due to school holidays but the pool was clean and suitably heated. This is the third time I have stayed at Mariners Bay and I plan on coming back. If possible book a back apartment... More

I stayed in a 3brm with friends and family for my 30th birthday weekend. The place was excellent! Everything I wanted. The facilities were great, the rooms were very nice (the loft bedroom is so nice), staff were friendly and the location was good.

Thank you for your great review. We are glad you enjoyed your family 30th Birthday celebrations and found the apartment comfortable. We do often get reviews that mention the road noise on Shirley Street – it seems to affect some guests and not bother others. All the apartment complex’s along this strip do have to manage this and we are... More

it was hard to find accommodation in Byron for the school holidays without paying a fortune and/or having a whole week. We had 5 nights here, and it was fine, and ok value, considering the period. It is spacious, well equipped and comfortable, and well located, on the main road into Byron, 5 minutes walk to centre and beaches. Easy... More
