We loved everything about Bay Villas Resort! We were on the top floor in a two bedroom self contained apartment. The stairs area only short flights, so mo problem for us. The only down side is that we shared a mini foyer with the next room (12A and 12B), so you need to make sure you pull your door closed before leaving the main door. I think this so they can still book the other room as a hotel style room, or people can book a three bedroom and it is then kind of all in one.
Our room had everything we needed, and was very spacious. Was nice being able to spread out and not feel like we were tripping over our luggage or each other.
Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. We all got good sleep here.
Location was great - we have young kids so hired a car to drive everywhere. Close to town but limited parking at times. You can park in the back street. At night, the street at the back was used as a race track, so try to steer clear of the back part of the venue if this bothers you.
Two separate pools, one heated and one not. The pools were never too busy which was great, and there are some sun lounges to lie on and watch the kids. Two separate BBQ areas as well (one gas, one electric). They have some supplies there like oil, salt, paper towel, tongs etc so it made it nice and easy to cook up a feast and enjoy on the deck.
One of the best parts about the stay was the woman at the reception. She was always happy to assist and gave us lots of tips of things to do and places to go. She even told us that if we were going to the supermarket, then there was an underground carpark that you access from the back of Coles. This helped us as immensely as it was hard to get a park in the main drag!
I will be recommending this venue to anyone I know who is traveling up this way.

My husband, toddler and 5 month old stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment at Bay Villa for 10 nights in July. It had everything we required for a relaxing family friendly holiday! The apartment was huge and spacious with a garage and enclosed courtyard. Other bonuses included a bath tub and a full equipped laundry. Vicky at reception was lovely and extremely helpful, we borrowed many magazines and sand equipment throughout our stay. The two pools were great - one heated which was perfect in the evenings, and a cooler one which was great when the sun was shining!

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor which was great for kids/pram etc. The only thing is it was a little too shaded for my liking, however all of the other apartments on the other side appeared light and sunny! Perhaps ask for one of these apartments if you prefer an abundance of sunlight like I do!

Such a lovely large room for my husband toddler and I. Close enough to town to walk to restaurants and cafés or all the amenities to stay in and do dinner at home. There is a full size bath tub making it even easier if you have kids. Hiring a bike to ride on 4 mile beach is a must. One of the pools is heated which was great in the cooler winter months.

Stayed: July 2014

We stayed at Bay Villa from 15 to 20 July 2014.

Good: staff very friendly and helpful, close to 4 miles beach and town centre (walking distance), quiet enough for a good night sleep, efficient aircons in all rooms, good range of cooking tools, washing machine (which can be a bit noisy).

Hmm..: when booking, ask which floor is the apartment - there is no lift and can be a struggle to lug luggage up 2 storeys (and for older folks). Also struggled with 2 adult males in a queen bed but that is our fault as we should have checked earlier. Sometimes had to park on the road during busy period. Initially thought the apartment a bit small but got used to them.

Did not use the pool or barbecue area. Hired bikes from reception to ride up the 4 miles beach. Took advantage of the great seafood in PD (crays, prawns, scallops, coral trout, etc) and cooked a lot in the apartment. Borrowed a hammer from staff for the mud crab...yum.

Room Tip: No lift to 1st and 2nd floor.

My wife, adult daughter & I stayed at Bay Villas for 10 x days 16-26 June.
We had a 2 x bedroom apartment which had everything we required. Each room had an aircon unit, plus had a fan. We had an out door area the unit was well equipped for self catering if required. Another bonus was washing machine & drier.
We also used the outdoor BBQ by one of the pools several times.
Above all the apartment was we clean & well appointed.
To walk to Four Mile Beach is 5-6 minutes as is to the main street shopping area and approx. 10 mins to the mariner. (we did not have a car)
The staff at the Villa are very friendly and most helpful, plus offer good advise and can book any trips you may wish to do.
Over all we found Bay Villas had everything we required in the accommodation we wished for.
If you want room service ,porters, butlers & silver service stay at the Ritz !!
Thank you Bay Villas for helping make our stay more enjoyable , especially Vicki.

Room Tip: We had a down stairs room ,in a corner ,couldn't see much but was cool & roomy close to the pool & quite . Remember it gets pretty warm !
