Byron Bay isn't cheap and trying to find accommodation at the last minute during the beginning of Summer season can be a challenge. When I saw the deal AUD99 for an ensuite cabin I quickly jumped to it.
The Tourist Village is located next to a swamp, separated by Belongil creek, and because of that, it is impossible to walk to town via Belongil beach. The environment of the Tourist Village was rather well kept, with good security, neat lawn and tidy vegetation, my cabin's bedroom window overlooks the lake, which is nice, and at night, I could hear the sound of the ocean.
The cabin looks nice from the outside but has a tired interior and was not well cleaned - dirt gathered at corners, sticky floor, mold in shower box and hair everywhere in the bathroom. The bed was on the soft side that sags in the middle, a brown blanket that looks and smells like it needed a good wash and only one soft pillow given per person, as a result, I didn't get quality sleep during my two nights there.
The kitchen was well equipped with all the utensils needed for simple meals, the dining/living area minimal with table, chairs and a tired looking sofa, the tv above the fridge was small but functioning and a 'veranda' with 2 dirty plastic chairs which I didn't use. Car park is available right beside the cabin which makes loading and unloading easy.
There is a small shop beside the office/reception that sells basic stuff like bread and milk but is not open all the time, there are also nothing around the area so I had to stock up while in town.
Given the price I paid I didn't expect much in terms of amenities but the cleaning standard definitely needs keeping up if I were to return again.
