Reviewed 17 May 2017

The expansive and expensive promise of premium lodgings in a dazzling location with unobstructed views and all the requisite conveniences sets high expectations. The Ocean View Apartment – reviewed here – provided a very comfortable and relaxing stay but some expectations were just not met.

The good: the apartment offers bright, airy, spacious and relaxing accommodation looking out over Wategos and Byron Bay. The décor is contemporary Balinese-luxe beachfront, the king bed is comfortable, the linens plush and the whole place was conspicuously clean. Everything expected was there and it all worked as expected. The bathroom is commodious and well-appointed. There is one garage space for the apartment and the wifi worked well on all our devices. There is a guest laundry available. Leaving aside the background sound of the surf, the place was mostly quiet during our stay – but see next.

The not so good: the refrigerator made random loud buzzing noises which was disturbing - especially during the night. The parking would be a bit tight for anything larger than a medium car and the bathroom lighting was not of much use for shaving or making up.

The disappointing: the “ocean view” panorama from the living room as depicted on the Watermark website is now considerably obstructed by a couple of luxuriant pandanus palms. The view is still there but needs some effort to discern so, for the time being, the bedroom has the only uncompromised ocean outlook. Also, the promised “absolute beach frontage” is only absolute if you ignore the public road (albeit quiet) which does, indeed, front the Wategos Beach absolutely. But then “absolute road frontage” just doesn’t have the same cachet does it. The little note stuck on the refrigerator informing the consequences of making too much noise would not have been out of place in a backpacker’s lodge, but it was here.

The upshot: It’s still very good but the failure to fulfil the gratuitous hype cost it a star in our estimation.

Hi Ted
I'm not really sure how to respond to a review like this. You’ve obviously done your fair share of reviewing and perhaps you are taking the role too seriously. I am happy for everyone to give honest opinions on my place but can’t help but feel you are looking to find anything amiss with a place because you enjoy writing about them. I will let the sensible public weigh up your grievances against the groundswell of reviews suggesting otherwise.
There is one comment which I must object to and that’s gratuitous hype! We have one of Byron Bay’s premiere accommodation offerings and I won’t accept honest peoples reviews on TripAdvisor being trivialised by you as ‘gratuitous hype’.

Hi there Donna and thanks for giving us such an amazing review. By the sound of it you enjoyed every aspect of your stay at the Watermark and we couldn't be happier about it. Thanks again for a great review and we hope to see you again soon.

We had a very relaxing weekend at Watermark at Wategos, staying in the beachfront suite (2). The whole suite was very well appointed, serioiusly comfy bed and pillows, very clean, lovely L'occitane products in the bathroom, amazing water pressure and all the mod cons you could need (including super fast wifi). All of this paled thought in comparison to the gorgeous views and sound of the ocean that we got to enjoy the entire time. Sitting out on our little patio with a glass of wine while watching the waves was just perfect. Would highly recommend for couples and would go back in a heartbeat. (If I can get the grandparents on board again with the grandkids!)

A very well presented one bedroom apartment / suite positioned ideally, with beach views (a stones throw) on Wategoes.

Everything was exactly as, if not better than, hoped.

If you're looking for a place for a couple of days or even a week and you want your own space as a base - look no further.

Also comes with parking, equipped kitchen and 2 small balconies with bi-folding doors to bring the sea air in.

While the location right on Wategos Beach is fabulous...the residence is very well appointed and laid out, the casual sunroom area overlooking the beach is great. Each room looks over the beach...the only reason to close the balcony doors is if the sound of the surf is not to ones liking.

The service was excellent, everything works, parking good, Corrinne very responsive and the other onsite staff/cleaners were very helpful and friendly...it made for a wonderful stay.
