By the Bay Beachfront Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 December 2011

I booked a weekend stay at By the Bay using a Groupon voucher - great value for money! We stayed in the Malindi apartment just before Christmas so no crowds and usual summertime buzz - the self contained unit had stunning views of the sea from the balcony with the beach/sea only metres from the apartment. A perfect way to relax at the end of the year!
Cheers Fiona for a great stay!

With white sand beaches just a few steps from your door this place is a perfect summer get away. This place has it all, outdoor equipment to hit the beach with, outdoor spa over looking the ocean, bright clean tidy rooms and a fantastic host. Only down side is the noise from the other rooms but the builder was there addressing the problem so we will definately be back.

We stayed four glorious nights in the Willawong room - our family of four and another family of four (all kids < 4). The apartment was beautifully clean and well suited to young kids: all decks fully enclosed and all on one level bar a couple of steps up into the lounge.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the apartment was super well equipped, with everything you'd need on a summer holiday, and other comfort items like ground coffee and a decent coffee machine - vital for those of us with young kids.

The views from the deck are breath-taking, and the opportunity to have a spa overlooking the beach at night was just brilliant. There's a communal BBQ too.

We didn't get a chance to use it, but there is a shed full of watersports gear (kayaks etc) for guests to use which I thought was great.

The service was excellent, and when we inevitably left a couple of clothing items behind, Fiona posted them on to us immediately.

All in all, a fantastic place to stay on a stunning beach. I'd go back there in a heartbeat.

We spent 4 days at By The Bay. Guests are made to feel very welcome, with nothing being too much trouble. The apartment was impeccably clean and very well presented. The kitchen is well equipped, and even freshly ground coffee was supplied. There were little touches all over the apartment which really makes a difference. Fresh flowers, the coffee, skincare samples. I had a facial with Fiona, which was lovely and very relaxing. All in all a wonderful break in a very pretty spot. Highly recommended

Great accommodation and easy access parking for our vintage car. Unfortunately our Vintage Car Rally stay was only for the one night, but we will be back for a longer stay shortly. We have stayed there before and each time we have been made most welcome. It is also a good restfull place to come back to after exploring the other scenic attractions of the Far North.

Husband and I stayed two nights in the studio apartment and loved every minute! Sweeping lawn down to the beach, wonderful view and it's hard to beat luxuriating in the spa with the sea below you as the sun sets. Fiona is a great host and Clea (mini fox terrier) a delight. The apartment was also very clean and genuinely well equipped with everything you actually need. Highly recommended - we'll be back!
