Great location and unit size

Stayed in a 3br unit. Unit is a great size. 2 double neds. Two single beds. Kitchen great size. Location is fantastic without being in the "main beach mad house crowds". Includes a private path to beach we did not get to try. TV sound crap. But don't go to Byron and watch TV! Pool looked nice, kids always in it of course. Spa looked nice. Staff friendly but no need to interact much.

Perfect for us

We had an amazing stay in the 3 bed room. Perfectly appointed for a family with small children. Warm pool plus spa. Close to beach. Short walk to town

Perfect location

Pros: Pretty much everything, I cant criticise anything.
Cons: Parking for visitors
Location: 100m to beach, 5min walk to town centre and 10 minute drive to light house.
Large and well equipped apartments, 100m walk from back gate to beach and a 5mins walk from front entrance to town centre. Management were very helpful in setting up for our specific requirements. Nice pool and BBQ area, which on the Saturday we were there had a musician playing in the afternoon which was a wonderful bonus.

Hi Ali, We really appreciate you taking the time to review us. We are very lucky with the location of Outrigger Bay, close to town and beach access at our back gate. We love having the live music around the barbeque as it brings everyone together and really captures the essence of what Byron Bay is known for. Thank you for reviewing us. Kind regards, The Outrigger Bay Team

Thank you for your kind words. We are lucky with our location, close to town, beach access and just across the road from the monthly market and weekly farmer's market. We hope you get to visit us here again someday. Thanks again, The Outrigger Bay Team.

Nice hotel but not worth the price

Pros: Location - close to beach and Jonson Street
Cons: TVs in the master bedroom - never stayed in a 3 bdrm at this price where this wasn't provided. Bathroom upgrade, shower leaked all over floor each use
Location: Beach was so close and easy access from apartments.
Loved staying here as it was a great location - just not worth the price given what else you can get cheaper and similarly priced

Excellent quality and location

Pros: The location to the beach and shops was perfect.
Location: So much to do, but try to get up to the lighthouse for sunrise. And definitely go to the Treehouse on Belongil.
Fantastic apartments, the direct access to the beach was fantastic and so close to the shops but with none of the noise! The pool was great, and the floating beanbags were a big hit with the kids. We didn't use the BBQ or spa but both looked clean and in good condition. Our apartment was very spacious, all the utensils and crockery were in excellent condition. We were on the road side of the complex but as long as we kept the patio doors closed we didn't get any road noise at all. None of us could find anything to fault about this place. Will definitely stay there again.

Thank you so much for your feedback. We always strive to be better at what we do so hearing our guest's feedback is important to us. Thank you for mentioning the lack of road noise when doors are shut. Many people worry that it might be too noisy on the roadside, however the bedroom windows are all double glazed, shutting out any traffic noise. The floating beanbags are always popular with the children and the complimentary pool toys and boogie boards too. We hope you can stay again with us sometime. thanks again and kind Regards, The Outrigger Bay Team.

All good

Great stay. Appreciate the apartment space, convenient location, warm pool and full kitchen facilities. Loved the warm big rugs and that there were plenty of them. Helped our family get comfy on cold nights.

Great location, great facilities close to beach

Stayed here for 4 nights on a winter break. Beautiful apartments with lots of light and great facilities. Well set out large, comfortable and well equipped. Short walk into town and down to the beach. Communal areas well kept and the Friday evening free music on the grass by the pool made the experience very special. Only complaints is the spa could have been warmer and the beds were not very comfy.

Could not have been happier

Pros: Quality of the apartment and facilities. location on Bilongil Beach and adjacent to CBD, and the underground secured car park.
Cons: The vaulted window in the master bedroom of the 3 bedroom apartment needs a curtain to stop early morning light - early sun comes straight in.
Location: Bilongil Beach on the doorstep
We had a fantastic time staying at The Outrigger. When I entered the secured property from the street to check-in, I noticed immediately that the gardens externally were immaculate. This is normally an indicator on how the remainder of the property is presented and it is great to be able to say that the great first impression continued for our entire stay. Our three bedroom apartment had two large balconies, perfect for storing surfboards and allowing towels and swimmers to dry, as well as relaxing/reading and eating (big six seated outdoor table on main balcony). The room and hotel facilities (swimming pool, BBQ, etc.) are excellent. The pool is even equipped with floating mattresses and noodles for the kids to play with. The secure underground car park (remote control provided) is fantastic, allowing you to leave your boards strapped to the roof of the car with no concerns. The ability to walk directly onto Bilongil Beach is brilliant (so no need to load up a car and then find parking just to get to the beach), as is the two minute walk right into the middle of Byron Bay for dinner, shops and ice cream. The property managers are extremely friendly, happy and professional.
