Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent a wonderful 3 nights - apartment (3) was very clean and comfortable. Location is perfect. Parking is a bit tight if you have a large car. Lucky enough to be there to see whales from the balcony. We look forward to coming back soon.

We stayed at Watermark for 4 nights. We absolutely loved our stay and loved everything about Watermark. The suite had everything you need, was clean and furnsihed beautifully. The location was superb, we loved being able to walk straight across the raod to beach or to get on path to walk to lighthouse.

Stayed for 5 nights, beautiful beachfront accommodation. Very relaxed and beautifully styled. Location is awesome. We had a car so easy to visit the hinterland behind Byron which is amazing. However if want to stay local, it’s an easy walk into town and fabulous walk to lighthouse. Visit Rae’s for an awesome dining experience less than 5 minute walk.

Excellent position and beautifully appointed suite. Everything you would need for a short break. Stunning views. Unfortunately there is a building site next door (which we were forewarned about) but concrete pouring started at 6.30 am!

Beachside bliss! Beautiful residence with all the comforts and luxuries. In such a good spot across the road from Wategos. Close enough to town to pop in when you need to but away from the hustle and bustle. Well set up for families. We can't wait to come back. Thanks Watermark team!

Lovely light room with everything you could need for a relaxing stay. Right from the start all instructions were clear with easy access to apartment . Well decorated spotlessly clean and good quality linen and toiletries all through. Lovely view and even though it rained for 4 days it was a lovely place to stay...Will definitely return with family as well.

We stayed for our anniversary this weekend. Location perfect. Value for money - perfect. Water views - also lovely. So why just 4.5 stars? Well we’ve traveled a lot and stayed at many gorgeous places so experience tells us that something was definitely missing in order to get 5/5 - what we found could be better were: 1) clearly some odour in the bedroom - which was masked by the very strong reed diffusser in bathroom. The smell was quite overwhelming. Needed to open windows to “diffuse” the diffuser. The day before arrival a number of terms and conditions sent. Somewhat off putting given there was no flexibility in having a late check out. Guests have to empty bins and put dishes away. Also no tissue box or sun screen. The washing machine (communal) was also not that accessible. Overall - It’s definitely lovely and the location and beach definitely gorgeous. So in a nutshell - it was almost perfect. Thanks for the lovely complimentary coffee, nuts and cereal.

Thank you Moulo for taking the time to write a review on our property “Watermark". I am sorry you found the reed diffuser a little overwhelming and of course it is a personal thing, but they can be removed from the Apartment either by yourself, or housekeeping would be happy to oblige. There should have been tissues in the room and I have spoken to housekeeping personally to ensure these common items are replenished after each stay. We do request that guests remove rubbish from the Apartment, although housekeeping would also do this during the service visit on the third day, of your stay. We ask this of our guests to ensure shellfish waste is removed from the room ASAP, particularly during the warmer months as we all know the odour can become quite intense if left unattended. We understand that lengthy "Terms and Conditions" can be a little overwhelming , but it is important that our guests have a full record of them prior to arrival. We do struggle with early or late check outs, but would always consider each request, based on availability. Our laundry is located in the most central position that we are able to provide, in order for all guests to have access to the facilities. We are continually striving to improve our guest experience and let me assure you, all your comments have been noted and addressed with our full attention. It is extremely important to us, that we are completely across all details concerning the property and the comfort of our guests, in order to ensure a complete and relaxing stay with us here in Byron Bay. Watermark is the “Jewel” of Wategos Beach, and we will continue to ensure it remains as such. Moulo, I do hope that you will return to us sometime soon and please be sure to call our office direct in order for us to apply our 10% discount for all return guests. Many thanks and stay safe. Kind regards Geoff Wood General Manager

We spent a wonderful 2 nights at the Watermark staying in the Studio on the ground floor. It had a lovely view of the beach where my husband and I spent evenings spotting dolphins and sipping our drinks. The view of the beach is a tiny bit obstructed by a few trees, but actually the trees give you some privacy from the street so I appreciated them there. Love the fact it was literally 30 seconds from Watergos beach which is quieter and more private beach than the mean beach on Byron so it was great to go for a dip there. Also love that it’s only 700m walk up to Byron Lighthouse! Bonus! The studio apartment is BEAUTIFUL. Big comfy bed, fell sleep listening to sounds of the sea. Love luxurious continental breakfast provided. The only things I would say could be “improved” would be a couple more hooks near the bathroom to hang wet towels would be helpful; and as much as I do love the toiletry brand provided, it would have been nice to have seen a local luxury/organic brand used instead. All in all, wonderful relaxing few days, just wished we could have stayed longer!

From the moment you make the booking till you sadly have to leave, this place and the team who look after you deliver. Ok, it's not my first time to stay here, and I've already booked to go back. The suite has everything you need for your getaway. The toiletries are thoughtful and of lovely quality. Everything is so so clean. You can buy groceries and pretend you live there or just access the many restaurants and takeaways for the convenience of it. There is an outside shower to rinse off when you return from the beach and the view is unrelenting in its beauty. The instructions you receive to check in via text the day before are clear and concise and there is always the mobile number to call if you get stuck. One more thing. The pictures on the website are exactly as you find the place. It still feels new. I highly recommend a stay here.
