Very happy with the spaciousness of the apartment, the facilities, the cleanliness and location👍. Suited us. We stayed in apartment 8 and were able to park in the street behind the complex and come in our own private gate. Value for money in Byron.

3 day stay with UK visitors - apartment was fine and the pool and bbq were perfect for what we needed. Great spot for everything that Byron Bay has to offer. I left some jewellery behind which had great sentimental value. When I called, 24 hrs after checking out, the cleaners had already found it and handed it to reception...

The three bedroom apartment we had for 3 nights last weekend was very clean, well furnished with very comfortable beds, undercover parking and a verandah on both sides to catch the beautiful breeze and a nice pool. All we needed for a short break.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a nice break even though the weather was not the best. Come back and visit beautiful Byron in Winter when it is mainly dry and still warm with the added bonus of the annual whale migration being in full swing.

We stayed here for 3 weeks end February/beginning March. Couldn't have wished for better. The apartment was spacious, well furnished and had everything you would need for a self catering holiday. The complex was beautifully maintained with a lovely pool, which the majority of the time we had to ourselves. The managers, in particular Sam, couldn't have been more welcoming...

Stayed here for a family holiday in late October and took some advice and asked for a back apartment which is not on the road and this was great as we were on the beach side.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you liked the location of the apartments and also the apartment itself. All the beachside ones have now been refurbished.

Stayed here in a 3 bedroom apartment in November 2016. Clean (although could have paid more attention to this) and enough plates/utensils etc to cook for the 3 of us. Couldn't have the balcony doors open very often because the wind caused the hanging lights to beat against the wall! Was on the road into Byron Bay and very busy...

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you liked the apartment and yes, there were certainly very strong winds coming off the ocean for a few days. Usually, they are not strong enough to interfere with the hanging lights. If you are looking to stay in Byron when it is not so busy,...

A group of five friends and myself set out to have a relaxing stay at Mariner Bay in one warm week of December. Although the stay was mostly enjoyable, i was astonishingly displeased by the fact that some BEDrooms had ginormous skylights which had no curtains.

This review is written by the same schoolies group that wrote the review titled 'Patronizing Staff'. They are unhappy that they had too pay to have a carpet cleaned after leaving the shower door screen open (whilst having showers) plus also the main ensuite bathroom door so water soaked the carpet and left a big watermark.
