Interaction with Guests
Will meet and greet guests. Happy to provide information about whats on in Byron Bay and the hinterland.
Wategos Beach is the most easterly point of the Australian mainland and is a small bay, with a beautiful beach, situated under the Byron Bay Lighthouse. If you like nature, spectacular scenery, enjoy walking, swimming, snorkling, lazing on the beach & want to be close to the action of Byron Bay but not right in it, you will love this spot. Surrounded by National Park & the Pacific Ocean it is the perfect place to relax. If you want to surf you have an excellent view of Wategos Beach & as the apartment is on the ridge between Wategos Beach & the Pass - an easy walk down to the Pass if you prefer that option. Great food is within 5 minutes walking distance, the local Byron Bay farmers markets are open on thursdays. Many interesting galleries to visit & don't forget a drive to explore the hinterland.
You won't regret your visit to this area!
There are many great walking tracks at your doorstep. An easy 1/2 hour walk to CBD along beach or walking track. Taxis approx $10 from CBD.

Airports at Ballina/Byron (1/2 hour away with bus transfers), Gold Coast (45mins away with bus transfers) or Lismore (45 min away). Hire care companies at Airports or in Byron Bay CBD.

Louise was helpful and simply delightful. The views and the apartment were amazing. Heaven. We will be back.
Location and views were amazing but place is a bit run down and a beach shack which to me did not live up to it's $300 a night price tag. No blackout curtains in the bedroom meant I was woken up at sunrise every day, not ideal for holidays! No WIFI and the actual shower doubling as the entrance to the building was pretty inconvenience and dangerous when you've had a shower, floor is completely wet and you have to walk in and out through it to go outside/come in. You are paying for the views and location here.
Had a wonderful time at Wategos.
The unit is open and sun drenched, with excellent views of Wategos Beach. I couldn't even keep count of how many humpback whales we saw from the balcony!
Just a short walk to the lighthouse and a pleasant 15minutes along the beach to Byron Bay.
The unit itself is spacious and warm with a fantastic kitchen space ( we only ate out once in a full week as we enjoyed cooking in the kitchen so much!)
Louise left plenty of useful information about the Byron area and was very easy to communicate with.
If you're looking to stay in Byron I highly recommend this unit. You won't get a better view and it truly feels like a proper getaway.
I would recommend hiring a car as it is a 15 minute walk to town and beside that there's lots to do in the surrounding area as well.
All up a great place well worth it!
Fantastic views and an excellent position. Good communication with Louise beforehand and was there to meet us on arrival. Perfect place for a quiet getaway.
This is a wonderful comfortable and tastefully furnished apartment in a great location. Louise was very helpful and welcoming and everything was spotless and clean. Its very spacious and quiet as well ! We enjoyed everything very much thank you so much
Beautiful view from the balcony and bedroom, place was clean ready for us to come enjoy our time off.
Well kept, spacious beach pad with all the comforts of home. The photo is the actual view from the bedroom and balcony, simply stunning! Only a 2 minute walk to from the beach and not far to the light-house. Main street a lovely walk along the bay beach. Lovely place to relax and revive, close to everything but you feel a million miles away.
We were personally met by Louise, who is sweet and friendly and took the time to tell us about the Bay's best kept secrets.
