“Exceeded expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

I went down to Byron Bay recently with a group of friends. We were after somewhere with a relaxed atmosphere and close to the beach and shops, this is exactly what we found in Mariner Bay Apartments. We hired a 3 bedroom and 2 bedroom for 3 nights, the apartments were beautifully furnished, and kitchen supplies and utensils were abundant, this is something I certainly value for a weekend away and when cooking your own meals. Would certainly recommend!

We really enjoyed our stay, the apartment was furnished beautifully, quite large, everything we needed was there and it was clean. The pool was adequate, lovely but not huge and there was a well equipped barbeque area. We loved the fact we had a balcony out the front and a patio area at the back, close to the pool. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Room Tip: My only problem I had while staying here was the road noise, it's on the main road into Byron Ba...

Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. We are so glad that you enjoyed your holiday and loved the apartment. The pool is not huge but it is salt water and heated so can be enjoyed all year around. Byron can get pretty busy at this time of year and there is some traffic noise on Shirley Street. It does affect all the apartment complex’s along this road. We do believe that council are looking at a Bypass solution so if this happens it can only be a bonus! We look forward to seeing you back at Mariner Bay next time you holiday in Byron.

We found Mariner Bay Apartments, were top accommodation in a great location and the staff were very friendly. It was easy walking distance of both the shops and beach and parking wasn't any problem. The grounds are beautifully laid out and the pool and BBQ area were excellent.

We were really pleased with our short stay at Mariner Bay as we were joined by friends visiting from France who wanted to see Byron Bay while visiting Australia. We had adjoining apartments and special arrangements were made as I am in a wheelchair and needed a walk in shower. This was our second stay at Mariner Bay and will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Phone to discuss specific needs (if any) and a unit at the back would not have any noise from Shirle...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we are so glad you were able to catch up with old friends from Europe. We understand that it can be hard to find suitable holiday accommodation that is wheelchair accessible so we intend to always try and ensure we have this facility. We hope to see you back staying with us soon.

excellent location- a short walk to the beach, or the main shopping/eatery ares of town.Our room was on the street side, and we found it a bit noisy at night time.the appartments were a good size, and the pool was a bonus!

Room Tip: ask for a room towards the back of the property- you'll sleep better!

Having lived in Byron Bay personally and now relocated we try and visit once a year. Over time we have stayed at numerous places but Mariner Bay is the place we keep coming back to. The pool is centrally located in the complex which is ideal to watch the kids. Great bbq area adjacent pool as well. Location is short stroll to centre of town and quick walk to neighbouring Belongil Beach. We introduced a first time family to Mariner Bay & Byron in this past trip and the general consensus was that it was the highlight of our holiday and making it an annual event was a must.

Room Tip: We found unit 8 seem to be a little bigger. It had ample natiral light and a great sunny aspect

Recently stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. Staff were excellent, helpful and friendly, great location only a short stroll into town and a short stroll to the beach. The apartment was modern, clean, tidy and spacious and we had a little court yard with a gate opening up into the backstreet which was handy when we went to the beach. The Apartment would be ideal for families with small children. The swimming pool and BBQ area is well maintained and well designed for an evening BBQ and swim. Would definately recommend Mariner Bay Apartments to anyone wanting a getawy to Byron Bay.

Hi BondiJayne, Thank you for your great review, we are glad you had a great time in Byron and enjoyed staying with us at Mariner Bay. The 2 bedroom beach-side garden apartments with the courtyard are great for relaxing in privacy and families do love staying there with little ones. Make sure you come back and stay with us again next time you come to Byron for a getaway!
