“Great Hosts, Location & accomadation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

I look forward to going back again to enjoy more of what "By the bay beachfront apartments" has to offer. We hit the storms in the north with power outages so not ideal however very memorable.

We were looked after very well by our hosts who provided us with hot water from there gas cook so we could make hot drinks. They were more than accommodating under less than ideal circumstances.

Great home with unbeatable sea views. Clean warm and cosy. I would highly recommend this as an option.

We loved the Studio apartment we stayed in. The Kitchenette was perfect, we cooked breakfast every morning and ate on the deck. The view is wonderful and we were very lucky with the weather, after all June is a winter month but we were in the winterless north. By the Bay Beachfront Apartments are well kept, clean. The grounds are well maintained with very easy direct access to the beach. The outdoor spa was clean and warm and with plenty of towels in the room. We will be back.

Having never been to that part of the country we were uncertain as to where to stay. After some online research we chose By the Bay and weren't disappointed! The facility was very clean and well maintained. The studio apartment we stayed in was perfect and the bed quite comfortable. The easy access to the beach was a nice convenience. Next time we head north we will definitely be staying there again!

Mangonui is now my home. Our stay at By The Bay was our 1st introduction to Doubtless Bay. Mary and her husband were welcoming, accommodating, very helpful & we were made to feel like family. The level of comfort in the rooms is luxurious, huge beds, quality linen, leather couches, & the view soothed the soul. Top End Accommodation when you feel like a treat that doesn't break the Bank Account. $'s spend good value, you could easily pay double for the same 5 Star Accommodation at other venues. Memorable experience. I would recommend 100%

The apartments were spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The view was literally breathtaking. What topped it off for us was the treatment we received from our wonderful hosts, Alan and Mary. We honestly felt like long lost friends. We will definately be back.

We were two couples staying a few nights. The apartment was spacious and comfortable and had great views across the bay, the sounds of the sea a balmy accompaniment. The beach was only a short walk across the lawn, although it was a bit too cold to swim when we were there in autumn, but we did take the canoes out for a paddle round the nearby coves, which was good fun. The kitchen was well equipped, though we only had one dinner in, as there are restaurants and cafes only a short drive away. The hosts, Alan and Mary, were welcoming and most helpful - fitting our accommodation flexibly to our needs, and even kindly mailing back to me a cherished item I had left behind. Top hospitality!

Room Tip: Discuss any particular needs with Alan and Mary, who were most helpful.
