Beaches Apartments - Byron Bay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 February 2010

15 January 2010

We stayed in Byron for 5 nights and having visited before (5 years ago) we knew we wanted an apartment rather than a hostel. That way we could have our own space. I searched loads of websites trying to find reasonably priced apartments and couldn’t find much information. I posted a few questions about Beaches Apartments on Shirley Road but didn’t get many responses.

Beaches apartments were perfect for what we wanted. Just outside Byron Bay, a 5-10 minute walk into the centre, its located on Shirley Street. There’s a cut through to Belongil Beach just behind the apartment, a 5 minute walk to the beach.

We had a kitchen, lounge, bedroom and bathroom. There were about 10 apartments in total and ours had a balcony overlooking the pool (Apartment 7). The apartment was really well equipped, everything you could need in the kitchen, and even had a washing machine and tumble dryer. The bedroom was a good size with wardrobes and the bathroom was good, with a nice shower and plenty of space. I’ve posted some pictures. The air conditioning was good and we cooked for ourselves most nights. Nice to sit on the balcony while the sun goes down. Everything was really clean and linen and towels were provided. The rooms are not serviced during your stay.

The pool was good and the apartments were nice and quiet, definitely not the place for a late night party. There’s a really good barbeque area by the pool which we used. We paid for wireless internet too which was good. The office is just next door if there are any problems.

There are quite a few other apartment blocks nearby on Shirley Street – Crest Apartments, Eco Beach Resort, Beachcombers apartments. They all looked pretty similar from the road.

If you’re looking for a chilled out break and want self catering these apartments were good. These were some of the cheapest I found, although as I said I struggled to get information on apartments (even on the Byron Bay accommodation website).

We paid $925 for 5 nights in peak time, pretty good in comparison to some of the other i looked at.

We had a really good 5 nights and didn’t want to leave.
