Byron Bay is a lovely little beach side town on the North Coast of New South Wales in Australia, and is a very popular stop for backpackers. My wife and I have some great memories from Byron Bay, and so when Roomorama.com contacted me and asked if I would be interested in trying out their services, I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to take my wife away for a night in one of our favourite places.
Booking our accommodation online with Roomorama was very easy. All I had to do was fill in a quick sign up form, and then look through their available properties. From the homepage, I selected my destination and travel dates, clicked search and it displayed all of the properties available in Byron Bay for the dates that I selected. When I clicked on a property, the page showed a full description of the apartment, including a list of amenities, rates, photos and conditions.
I decided upon the Beach Hut with Byronstay, which is a studio apartment located right near the beach. Once I was happy with my selection, I sent a quick inquiry to the owner. Within a couple of days my booking was fully confirmed and ready to go, and the owner also sent me detailed check in instructions and directions to the property.
The property itself is located in the nice quiet area of Belongil Beach, about 15 minutes walk outside of the busy centre of Byron Bay. Upon arrival at the apartment, the keys were left with a note from the owner, welcoming us to the apartment.
The studio apartment is located at the front of the property on the ground floor, and has a small outdoor patio with table and chairs and a small barbecue.
Upon entry we were greeted by a clean and cosy little apartment, with a comfortable double bed and ensuite bathroom. The apartment is self catering and has a kitchenette with sink, fridge, stove, microwave and all the crockery and cutlery that you could need. There is also a couch and tv, with DVDs provided.
The apartment is only small, but certainly more than comfortable for two people. The greatest part of all though – It is located only 50m from the beach!
We spent most of our afternoon enjoying the amazing beach near our apartment, and when it came to dinnertime, we just walked along the beach into the main centre of Byron Bay, and enjoyed a delicious meal with a few drinks.
Byron Bay was a great choice for a night away, and our apartment was exactly what we were after. Now we can’t wait to get back to one of our favourite places in Australia!
Thanks to Roomorama for sponsoring my stay at Byron Bay. All opinions are my own.
