My husband and I stayed on the top floor for 4 days at the end of summer. It was lovely. Being across from all the gum trees, being able to sit on the balcony and read and drink. Bliss. The apartment had all the modern amenities you would expect plus a lovely big spa bath and a great DVD collection....

Our initial reaction arriving here (perhaps a bit unfair considering we'd come from the amazing Berenbell in Hunter Valley) was disappointment as it was right on the road with no view of the sea (there's a eucalyptus grove in between). To be fair I don't think they claim a sea view on the website but in any event it didn't...

Our ratings say it all, nearly! Our hosts (Sharne and Grant) at Bali at the Bay just couldn't do enough for us to make our stay carefree and luxuriantly enjoyable. Our first whole day there was our 1st wedding anniversary; my wife knew NOTHING in advance of where we were staying, but her utter delight upon entering the upper floor...

Six of us gals had a great time! There has obviously been a lot of attention paid to detail. The spa tub was divine with big fluffy towels to dry off with after. We all loved the beautiful white robes to wear around in the morning. There was comfy furniture throughout. The accommodation is a five minute walk through beautiful...

Had a truly excellent and relaxing stay at the Bali at the Bay - the perfect escape from the stresses of everyday life. You're left to your own devices to relax, indulge, have fun…. The accommodation is comprised of two self-contained self-catering apartments. Both have car-parking, there are laundry facilities (with washing powder supplied). The upstairs apartment has two large...

I am sitting here surrounded by utter luxury. There are literally tens of thousands of dollars worth of additions that this place offers over and above any place I've stayed. The carved veranda posts, the authentic statues, the freshly oiled teak fittings, furniture, the curved timber window heads, the massive bamboo lounge, the over-abundance of cushions and on the verandah...

I can't believe anyone would give this place a bad review. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful, especially through the complications that happened during the time that we were booking. When we arrived, we received a guided tour through the stunning lower apartment and several suggestions for local activities. The room(s) is/are to die for. Between the private location...

I have visited Bali At The Bay so many times now that I really do not remember the number but it is at least 6 times, once even being our honey moon destination. I have been incredibly shocked to read some of the negative reviews written below, particularly those of the hosts, and therefore must share my experience. Sharne and...

We received very friendly service from the proprietors of Bali at the Bay. They were helpful and had a wonderful knowledge of the local area, restaurants and available tours. They also provided us with details of a sailing company (Blue Water Sailing) and we were lucky enough to have an entire 46ft yacht to ourselves for four hours, along with...

“The upper floor apartment is perfect for seclusion and balcony breakfasts; the ground floor is what you'd want if in BBQ and party mode! Both levels exude Bali, and are superb.”
