We stayed for one night at Glen Villa and I assume it is a good place for Byron Bay. 40AUD plus key deposit is a lot. Then again, everything is expensive in BB. The grass site was well maintained and we had civilized neighbours. The park itself is well maintained and the management is doing well keeping trouble makers out (guess through the price and several waivers you need to sign...). The amenities are huge and even feature extras for disabled and/or mother and child spaces which is a big plus. The pool is rather small.
And and still, we did not feel comfortable. I still claim to be within the BB target age group but those guests that we met were just released from some zoo I guess. I do not like disgusting, finger thick food leftovers in the campkitchen sink when doing dinner dishes. I do not appreciate having every single power outlet in the community places blocked by people charging their >1000$ igadgets while being cheap and not paying or a powered site (or maybe I'm just the fool?). I think it is offensive and rude bringing a guy into the female showers block without even one word let alone an explanation and/or apology (the bossy girl was then washing his most likely glass spiken flip flops in the sink while he was bleeding all over the floor...).
The list goes on and on.
Again I think its hard to keep a crowd like that under control and management is trying; still would not come back.
