“Five nights in a 3 bedroom apartment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

The three bedroom apartment was just right four our four adult and two children arrangement. We all had enough space. The pool was good for cooling off at the end of the day and a good alternative to the beach. Accommodation was clean and quiet at the back (#16) and we really enjoyed watching the birdlife and view from our balcony. We had a large van and it was sometimes awkward to park it in the underneath carpark when it was near full. Friendly hosts and a relaxing environment thank you!

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Tripadvisor. We are glad that you found our 3 bedroom apartment spacious enough for all the family and contained everything that you needed for your short break. There is always plenty of wildlife around Byron and we look forward to welcoming you back to Mariner Bay in the future.

My partner and I stayed here for 9 nights with our one year old. We were impressed by the size of the apartments and the bathroom. We cooked all of our evening meals here and I really couldn't think of anything we needed that wasn't supplied. The small yard at the back was perfect to let our son play in and meet the local brush turkeys! Easy walking distance to town and the weekend markets. BBQ area very clean as were all the grounds.

Thank you for a great review. We are happy you found the apartment catered for all your needs during a nice long break. It makes a family holiday so much more affordable when you can cook every night and I am sure the turkeys kept you all entertained. We look forward to welcoming you back to Mariner Bay in the future.

Firstly we were really pleasantly surprised by the spacious nicely furnished apartment, it exceeded our expectations. We had a ground floor unit which allowed for a deck front and back which was just lovely. The outside pool and communal BBQ area was also a bonus and the whole complex had a nice peaceful, relaxed feel.

We had everything we needed in the apartment for a family, cooking, washing, cleaning equipment and the undercover storage made for extra security and peace of mind.

With a short stroll to the hustle and bustle of the main drag Mariner Bay was a perfect location and exceptional value for money. Highly recommended, we will be back, only thing we would change…we wished we had stayed longer,

What a great detailed review you have written – thank you. We are glad the apartment exceeded your expectations and had everything that you needed. The 2 bedrooms at the back do have lovely little back yards that people enjoy, especially when staying with young children. Thank you for the recommendation and we look forward to welcoming you back to Mariner Bay for your next holiday.

Quite suprised at how lovely these apartments are with the added benefit of being close enough to town to walk. We stayed in a 3 room apartment which for 6 adults was very roomy and spacious with the added benefit of two balconies allowed us to really spread out. The beds are probably the most comfortable I've slept on having mattress toppers really makes your stay enjoyable. The grounds and pool area were beautifully maintained and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend a stay here if ever in Byron

This was my second stay at Mariner Bay, and I'll definitely be back here again.
The apartment was great, clean and spacious and perfect for our family. Everything you need is in there. The owners are so friendly and helpful. Pool and surrounds are beautiful and its a short walk into town. Would highly recommend Mariner Bay to anyone wanting to stay in Byron.

Room Tip: Id ask for a room out the back away from the road noise

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We are happy you found the apartment modern and to your liking. As Byron’s temperature is moderate and ranges from 22-28 degrees we find that guests are happy with the one AC in the lounge room. The AC units are large and do cool the whole apartment. This coupled with ceiling fans in the bedrooms keeps the apartment temperature cool. We hope that you will stay with us again at Mariner Bay when you visit Byron.
