To be clear, we booked our villa through air bnb rather than direct with the management, but my review would be relevant to all the villas/apartments. The location is pretty good - about a ten minute easy walk into the centre of town. However it is on a very busy road and we could hear road noise quite a lot....

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great time. The staff were really helpful and friendly and our accommodation was lovely - a 2 bedroomed villa which had everything you could possibly want and more! Location was great with the beach, restaurants and bars all within a short walking distance. We didn't use the swimming pool but it...

Our stay at The Crest was most enjoyable - good position - close proximity to beaches and town. Very clean, with everything you could require. Great that you didn't need your entrance key to run the air con. Nice touch being able to grab a book or DVD at any time at no cost. Very comfortable beds.

Check in was welcoming, smooth and trouble free. The room was clean, comfortable, spacious and contained all the mod-cons for a 5 night relaxing stay. We loved that there were two balconies (one overlooking the pool with table and chairs and one off the seperate bedroom overlooking the main road). Secure parking in the basement provided peace of mind, yet...

We absolutely loved our 4-night stay at The Crest and could have easily stayed much longer. The 2-bedroom apartment we stayed in was clean and spacious with a generous-sized courtyard only a stone's throw away from the salt water pool. Di and Doug were so lovely and accommodating from the second we arrived, lending us umbrellas and also a baby...

My partner and I visited Byron Bay for the first time and spent 4 nights at The Crest. We were pleasantly surprised at our apartment and the grounds. Very tidy, gorgeous BBQ and pool area and only 5-10 mins walk to the CBD. Loved every minute of our stay! Thanks Crest!
