5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

This property is a must when visiting the Jervis Bay area. By the Beach B & B Apartments will cater for all your needs... The self contained apartments are very modern & stylish, the finishes are that of a 5 star property. Their rooms also interconnect for larger families. Its extremely peaceful & don't be surprised if you are greeted by the local Kangaroos early morning or at dusk & there are also opportunities to feed the friendly possums at night at the property. We felt completely relaxed at this property, cooked BBQ's for breakfast and dinner & the children had an absolute ball. The location is within a short driving distance to Hyams Beach, Murrays Beach & Huskisson. The hosts Greg & Jan are amazing! Their very kind hospitality was 1st class. Thank you for making our weekend one we will never forget, we are already planning our next visit.

Room Tip: They have 3 apartments & they are all equally as excellent as the other.

This is in a great location in Jervis Bay, it is a huge single room (bedroom flows into the living area and kitchen), very nice, modern bathroom. We grilled dinner on the BBQ outside, kitchen very well equipped. Nice area for a walk, saw birds, and even kangaroos loping through a nearby backyard. Nearby small grocery store adequate for purchases for dinner. Wifi signal weak, but could access from outside. Highly recommended!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Greg and Jan are the consummate hosts and made our stay so comfortable. The room is very well thought out with a great shower, comfortable bed and fully functioning kitchen. Each unit has its own weber q barbeque which is a good touch. As others have mentioned, the breakfast is voluminous and will definitely keep you going for a few hours.

There can be some noise bleed between the units from the adjoining door which can be extremey frustrating late at night, however they are installing double doors to make it soundproof which will make the next stay a five star one!

If you are considering staying here, do it, you will be delighted. Make sure that you book well in advance as they are rather popular and garner a lot of return business which is a testament to the great operation that they run.

If you are coming for more than two days, i would recommend shopping at home and bringing all your meat, veg and vino with you. There are local stores, however they have limited choice.

Room Tip: They are all the same, however two is sandwiched between three and one, so i would go for either of...

By the Beach B & B was the ideal location to celebrate my 60th birthday with all my family. Our wonderful hosts, Greg & Jan, were able to accommodate our children and grandchildren in their 3 apartments, with 2 adults in the main house. The modern apartments were superbly outfitted for cooking and we were able to have our evening meals on the large deck at the main house overlooking the waters of the "Basin". Kangaroos, possums and numerous birds all made an appearance during our stay and Jan and Greg were helpful with local knowledge and did everything they could to make our stay a happy and memorable one. I highly recommend By the Beach B & B.

This a most tranquil location on the beautiful South Coast. The apartment was very stylish with all the right inclusions, a delightful breakfast and Jan and Greg were friendly and very helpful hosts. Very spacious apartment with private balcony and barbecue. A lovely natural bush setting overlooking the waters of St Georges Basin, lots of shady trees & we saw kangaroos & other Australian wildlife including many colourful birds that came up to be hand fed. And to top things off, there's a sandy beach in front where we could swim and sail a catamaran. Plenty of parking & a shop close. Can highly recommend.

Room Tip: This small group of all ground level apartments were architect designed such that each has identical...

I would have wished to give this place 5 stars - there are so many things right about it!

- The breakfast is PLENTY and yummy
- Jan and Greg (the owners) are about as lovely as owners could ever be
- kangaroos in the back yard during the evenings
- St Georges Basin (lake) literally right next to it
- Flats in a perfect condition, with great bathrooms and comfy beds
- Great veranda, with good BBQ facilities
- very spacious

Unfortunately, there were a couple of things that influenced it negatively:
- lack of noise cancellation: our apartment was right next to the owner's house's living room, and the only thing shielding us from them was a normal (locked) door. Although they weren't particularly noisy (they had relatives over), we could hear every word. And the noise cancellation was similar to the other side, the next apartment. If you're unlucky and you check-in next to someone who is loud, you won't have a good stay.
- lack of pots, pans and other things: there are some, but not enough to cook properly. I am sure Jan and Greg would have lent us their stuff had we gone over and asked, but it would have been better to have it right there.

It's up to you to decide how important these points are to you, I just wanted to be honest about it. Having said the negative things, I have to stress what a difference it makes to have two lovely people run these apartments. Greg must have held his introductory speech a million times, but we still had the feeling that he thoroughly enjoyed having guests, and Jan was very very attentive and extremely helpful.

If the noise cancellation issue got fixed, I would recommend this place to everybody without any reservations!

Room Tip: Take the one closest to the drive-way, it will only have one connecting door and therefore less chan...
