the apartments are a bit basic but very clean. The management is very kind. Good position close to the beach 10 mn walk from town. positive experience.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2009

We stayed at the resort but in a townhouse owned and rented privately (no 20) called Villa Aitutaki. It was easy to find along Shirley Street with other similar sorts of accommodation. There were numerous connected townhouses in the complex but at the back behind the pool were several freestanding places which were nice and quiet. We were lucky there wasn't anyone else in these places so no noise. As they were at the back of the complex there was no road noise from Shirley Street which I can imagine would be significant as it is the main road into town and sometimes bumper to bumper. The place was like the photos, the main bedroom had a canopy bed which looked very romantic. It was nice to have a small garden and the living area looked over this with big windows. The garden however needed a bit of a tidy up and the garden lights didn't work which was a bit of a shame. The place was fairly clean although the dishwasher could have done with a scrub. We had trouble getting in as we were sent a code for the key safe prior to leaving home but it had since been changed and we weren't informed of that. All enquiries have to go through the owner and not the manager of the complex. A quick phone call had us in but caused a bit if concern at first. There was a list of restuarants recommended in a folder but unfortunately no map of Byron Bay which could have been useful. There was a pool there which we enjoyed with our children. We enjoyed the quietness of the place plus the tropical atmoshere of the townhouse.
