Tamarama was our villa and what a gem it is . Absolutely perfect in every sense. The views of the ocean are magnificent and the villa contained everything we needed for our 5 day stay. Romantic, quiet, warm and sometimes rainy- it is truly a spectacular place to stay. We will come a. Highly recommended. The magpies became our friends... More

This is the second visit to Bluewater on the Beach. We have stayed both times at the 'Lifesaver' cottage. Perfect. You are a flight of steps away from a pristine beach. The cottage is one of 4 along the beach front. Has everything you need for a perfect holiday. The 'Lifesaver' is a 2 bedroom. A walk along the beach... More

We stayed at in the Lifesaver cottage at Bluewater for our 20 year wedding anniversary. The location was perfect, fabulous views from our day bed, sun lounge or deck's outdoor table. Easy walking distance into town for breakfast but also far enough away from the crowds. The facilities are clean, comfortable and beach vibe relaxed which is exactly what we... More

We actually visited in Feb 2015 but I'm only now getting around to writing a review. Our time here can be summed up in one word: perfect. It is a great location for families! We had tons of space for our two young boys. We were right on the beach but also enough away (up the hill) to feel private.... More

Loved the location - 1.3km from the edge of Byron along the beach - with elevated views along the beach - and steps or an easy path down to the beach. We were there when the surf was constantly up - incredible to see and hear! Staff were really friendly and helpful offering useful advice and tips - they couldn't... More

The only thing 5 star about this accommodation is the location. The dwellings are old beach shacks renovated mainly by DIY projects and poorly finished. I found there was a lack of privacy. Everyone could see in to each other's accom. There was a couple of bonuses though with being able to have the use of beach gear like surf... More

Thanks for your review however you seem to have a few things wrong. The property has never rated its self as 5 star and at NO stage did the owner express this to you. This reviewer has made a common mistake in how people think that the amount of dollars you pay means that the star rating matches. This property... More

We loved staying at Bluewater, couldn't beat the location! It was a very relaxing place to stay! Can't wait to come back and stay here again! We got to use the surfboards, bikes, paddle boards and even got a lift down to the lake to go paddle boarding by the very friendly and accomodating staff. Thankyou!
