Stayed here recently as we were attending a family wedding at the Surf Club across the road. Apart from the convenience of being able to walk there and back home in under a minute, it was so close to all the action. Whether it was the beach or the Beach Hotel everything is just 5 minutes walk. Amazing cafes nearby plenty of places to eat at all times of the day and night. We had never been to Byron before but will certainly go again and will definitely chose the Bayview Apartments. They were spotlessly clean, very comfortable, had everything you needed for a short or long stay. We arrived late after reception had closed, but that was no problem as our keys were placed in a night safe and we had free under cover parking for the duration of our stay. They had a beautiful pool, although we did not have the time to use it, it looked amazing.

Room Tip: There are no lifts, so if you have a problem with stairs, you would need to book into a ground floor room. We had the top floor room # 20 and we had some water views.

Booked the deluxe apartment ( No 18) for a friends wedding weekend.
A rare commodity these days, but happy to say the apartment looks as amazing as it does in the photos!
Couldn't be happier with the view, right opposite the beach (although we didn't get to enjoy it much as the entire weekend was extremely windy and even the furniture was getting blown around).
The beds where extremely comfortable, the entire place was spotless, we had everything we needed and it felt a bit of a waste that we weren't staying longer as we basically just used the place for sleeping in. Sadly we didn't even get chance to use the fabulous pool.
Great location,Two minute walk/crawl from the many varied pubs and restaurants. (but no night noise to keep you awake)
Would recommend for families/ shared accommodation as it was a bit expensive just for my husband and I.
My one and only piece of constructive criticism is that our apartment really needs a new kettle as when I went to fill it, it was all black inside. If we had been staying longer I would have mentioned this to the receptionist but as it was we went out for hot drinks mostly anyway, so I didn't bother.
Highly recommend the Bayview Apartments and would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Apartment 18- definitely best in house!

A large group of friends just stayed at the Bayview for a long weekend.

There is not really a better location for a group in Byron. Pretty much on the beach and a short stumble from the Beach Hotel.

Clean and modern apartments (not that we spent much time in them!). The pool area is great and we used the excellent BBQ facilities one afternoon. With a few beers in the sun you can't really beat it. The only stressful decision is whether to use the pool or ocean to cool off.

Rosy was a great host too with nothing too much trouble. Thanks for looking after us.

We'll be back next year.

I'd been looking forward to staying at Bayview Beachfront Apartments for months, it was meant to be a relaxing 7 day holiday after completing a massive project at work. I was in a real need to relax, so I treated myself and friends to a 'deluxe' holiday in Byron. The ladies on reception were lovely, very willing to help.
It wasn't until I was given the keys to our 2 bedroom apartment (sleeps 4) which was halfway down towards the basement when things started going wrong. Our view was not of the ocean, but every person passing on the street could see straight into our lounge room, and every other guest had to walk past our room. There was no privacy unless you closed all the curtains. The actual apartment was relatively large, basic features however there was sand was throughout the apartment, including in the couches. The main bedroom, the bed had wheels and you would roll around the room when you were sleeping. The walls were thin in the main bedroom and you could hear full conversations from people on the other side. Our outside area was shared, and we had to deal with people in the other room smoking and the fumes whafting into ours.

Their '6 page rule book' about everything, stating if you break the rules they'll charge you or kick you out. If you stay there, you should read it as they are very firm on these rules. Every wall in around the place has rules printed on them. I'm very appreciative of rules and have every intention on following them, however I felt they were quite limiting and in your face all the time so much that it impacted my holiday. The saving grace is the pool and the lounge chairs! They were amazing, we spent a fair amount of time there and it was lovely.
Overall, the location is what you're paying for here and if you have a sea view apartment with a balcony then they are the only ones I would recommend booking. Otherwise, I'm just really disappointed and feel I've paid far too much for an average holiday.

Room Tip: Only pick a sea view room. They are more expensive but it will be worth it.

Hi Megan,
I’m pleased you enjoyed our beautiful pool area as it is a popular pass time for most of our guests. I am sorry though to hear about your negative experience at Bayview. If your apartment was on the ground floor then you booked a Standard, and its only our Superiors and Deluxe that have ocean views(as advertised on our website), so perhaps that’s something to consider when you next book.
I am confused at the thin walls as our complex is made of double brick and all internal walls are about 10cm thick of cement. Perhaps there was a window or sliding door open?

None of our ground floor apartments are visible from street traffic so this comment also confuses me? Having the courtyard your apartment came with can have a flow of traffic from guests staying in the security complex, however this is a popular apartment due to the size of that courtyard. Being a beach front complex out apartments can attract sand from the guests frequenting the beach. It’s difficult when you have 5 guests in an apartment that sleeps 4 to keep the sand at bay if everyone is not showering before they return to the apartment. Had you let us know that the bed moved we could have had new stoppers put on immediately as the one on your bed must have just come loose. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

The 6 page rule book you refer to is not a book of rules per se, it’s an information folder common to all hotels and accommodation. We have a one sided, one page document within the compendium with Bayview information and yes, some housekeeping rules to follow as “Rules of Respect and Safety” within the complex. With large numbers of guests from all nationality’s we do need to ensure that everyone is on the same page and understands the same guidelines. Perhaps you have confused the “Fire Safety” instructions on the back of the door as a set of rules. I’m sure you appreciate that it is the law to have emergency escape instructions on every possible escape route to ensure the maximum exposure and safety of our guests.
Next time you are planning your holiday may I suggest you call direct as we can then be very clear on what you have booked to avoid any disappointment.
Regards,
Rosy

Spent four nights here, and had a great time. Service was fantastic, and Rosy went the extra mile to make out stay wonderful. Bayview is in a fantastic location, which made getting around so easy - they also provided us with parking which was so convenient. the apartment was large and spacious, and the view was great. Rosy gave us locals advice on where to go, where not to go, and what to do - Byron is a great place, and this is right in the middle of it. We were up for a wedding, and she was even printing off speeches and runsheets just minutes before we were leaving. Pool and shared facilities are nice, and the vibe of the place made everyone relaxed.
