“Lovely apartment Fantastic location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We stopped here for a long week-end on our 3 week journey up to Cairns. Wonderful place and these apartments are the place to stay, just across from the super beach. Modern apartments with everything you require and great standard. A few minutes walk takes you to the centre with all the shops, restaurants, bars etc. The outside bbq was great, we made good use of it. Great time, great stay!

We spent a fair amount of time looking into Byron Bay Accommodation and are absolutely thrilled that we found Bayview Beachfront Apartments. We still have a few days left in our stay, but are so happy we thought we would write our first TripAdvisor review.

The apartments are spacious, clean and modern. The surrounding areas are clean and very well maintained, the complex is secure and the location is just brilliant - across the road from main beach and walking distance to everything. We will absolutely be returning to stay again as soon as we can. Just Loved it.

Room Tip: Speak with reception when booking to get advice on best rooms - ours didn't have a view but we s...

Stayed here in 2011. Fantastic view, had an ocean view. Apartment was a little disappointing. Bathroom was rusty and dirty, sofa was basic. One bedroom has small double bed and the other was a two single beds. Best part was the balcony that went right round the whole apartment. Would say the location is fantastic but overly priced for the standard

I booked this thru last minute and have learnt my lesson. I did leave our reservation fairly late so was limited to what I could choose. Checking in was great and we were allowed in early which was fantastic. That was short lived when we were given apartment 5 which we nicknamed "the bunker". You actually walk down to the unit and the designated courtyard is described as "sunken". We also found out it is a shared courtyard which is horrible. You get no breeze and no view (you actually look at a wall). You are also in clear view of all guests entering the complex so no privacy. They look down on you as they walk by. I did try our luck and asked if we could be moved to another apartment and that we were prepared to pay more $$$ but received a firm "no, we are fully booked". The unit is average. Our son whos 11 could not brush his teeth in the bathroom vanity as it has been designed for giants. disappointed there is no security on windows as it is a low floor. My advice - dont settle for second best. Will be more organised next time.

The location is perfect close to the beach and the town.
Nice swimming pool. When you arrive the outside are great and look pretty new. Once you are in the apartment it is a bit different. It is not bad but :
- not very clean (lot of hairs in the bathroom)
- laundry room all rusty
- full of cockroaches every night => we ended up sleeping with the light on so that they don't come in and it seemed to work. Need a good pest control
- in our bedroom we felt like in a shelter at the opposite side of the beach. With the name of the residence (Bay View) we had hoped to be at least on the other side of the street
- only 6 forks, knives,...in a 2 bedroom apartment => so need to turn on the dishwasher after each meal.
- noisy garbage pick up
We liked the location but we were disappointed by the inside.

Room Tip: Avoid apartments which have no room on the sea side

Thank you for taking the time to review Bayview Beachfront Apartments. I'm sorry you were disappointed with the apartment and just wanted to let you know we have 4 levels of accommodation and price point to choose from, with the ground floor Standard and Unrenovated being the least expensive. We do advertise this on our booking sites. For views and fully renovated apartments we recommend the Superior and Deluxe apartments which have a higher tariff.
We also have a very strict pest control regime in place as being in the sub tropics, we do experience all sorts of creatures at different times of the year.
Many thanks again for the review.
Regards Fiona

Booked at the beginning of the year, $350/night for the new 2 bedroom apartment. Pros clean rooms, well appointed well designed and set out. No garbage bin inside the unit and yet a $25 fee applied if u didn't take out all garbage before departure even at $350/night. I usually do take out my own garbage, but with no bin we resorted to a plastic bag beside the kitchen area floor - maybe a hook on which to hang a bag even would have been of help better still a bin! So as to make it easy to carry all the garbage down to skip bins outside the complex.

There was no phone to be found not even to call reception and no compendium to help you learn a little bit about and orient you with the general area.

Our room was muggy, and although bedrooms had air con, fresh air would have been better - ceiling fans and screened windows/doors would have been a bonus.

I thought it was nice enough, but for the things listed above. Bed was SUPER comfy.

Room Tip: Unit 13 and the one above it are the best. We were in 14 and there was no breeze at all even though...

Thank you for your review, they are always greatly appreciated. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Bayview and Byron Bay and hope you may be able to return in the near future.

I just wanted to follow up on a couple of your comments.

All of our apartments have rubbish bins in the kitchen and in your apartment it is located in the kitchen cupboard near the sink, perhaps you missed it? I have checked the apartment as sometimes items do go missing however it is still in place in the cupboard.

As we are not an hotel, but rather holiday let apartments, we do not have telephones in the apartments. We don't have 24/7 reception as hotels do but rather a booking office on site for enquiries. Most people have mobile phones now so we have not found a need to install telephones into individual owners apartments. Our contact phone numbers for out of hours emergency contact are listed in the compendium in each apartment. It seems the compendium was not in your apartment so I do apologise for that and also thank you for bringing this to our attention, we will ensure it is replaced.

All our apartments are air conditioned in the bedrooms and also have screens on the windows and sliding doors, the apartment you stayed in does have screens so I'm a little confused about your statement that there were none?

I'm glad you found it comfy and clean as we strive to ensure the apartments are well maintained in every possible way to enhance your stay. Thank you again for taking the time to review our property.

Kind regards
Fiona

I stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute, great apartments with the ease of walking 2 minutes to the beach and Lawson st. Having a pool and under ground secure parking was also a terrific bonus. Highly recommend, A+.
