Location, Location, LOCATION!! If that’s what you’re looking for then this apartment offers you the ultimate setting. The front patio offers probably the best views out of any of the apartments in the complex...

Situated opposite Captain Cook lookout and the stairs to Clarkes Beach this three bedroom, two bathroom apartment offers incredible views of both ocean and hinterland from the living room and master bedroom. From here you can take a 10 minute leisurely stroll into town or set off on a morning ‘lighthouse loop’ taking in Byron’s breathtaking scenery along the way.

The apartment offers all the luxuries of home (or even more). There is a high quality sound system with a large 50” Plasma complete with DVD and AUSTAR. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes microwave and coffee machine. The living area offers comfortable lounges and a relaxing daybed to lay back on with your favourite book or mag.

The front patio offers probably the best views north out of any of the apartments in the complex and has a lovely table setting to relax at. The back area has a great gas BBQ for those barby purists wanting to cook up a storm after a fantastic day down the beach. The James Cook Apartments also offers a large salt water pool which the kids will love.

Upstairs you have the the 3 bedrooms and shared bathroom. The  queen master bedroom with ensuite is located at the front. This bedroom offers sweeping views over the bay-one of the best veiws in town. You have a deck from the bedroom to enjoy the views and a sunset drink. The 2 other rooms are located side by side- one has a queen bed and the other has a bunk- with a double on the bottom and single at the top-great for kids.

Clarkes Beach is regarded as one of the safest beaches in the Byron area being regularly patrolled over summer and fantastic swimming for the kids. It is also a great learn to surf spot with long rolling waves. When the swell picks up you can wander up the beach to the world famous Pass surf break and enjoy the action from the beach or out on your board.

My family and I just enjoyed a long weekend at Byron at #11 James Cook Apartments. It was very clean and had everything we could need for our time away. I think I'm going to have to convince my husband that apartment living is the way to go LOL. Loved it heaps. The apartment complex is so close to everything, from the Lighthouse to Byron Bay's main streets. We walked everywhere and it was such a wonderful experience being able to do that as we live in the country and have to drive everywhere. The main bedroom's views are amazing and being able to sit out the front and enjoy the atmosphere is just amazing. Also the process of renting the apartment and key access is wonderful to as you can arrive when you want and not have to worry about going from one place to another, you can just arrive and start enjoying what you came away for. It also has safe parking for one car which is great.
Awesome location    08-28-2012
We recently stayed at the James Cook Apartment # 11. It was a wonderful holiday, the accommodation adding to our overall experience.

We have two small children and they loved the apartment. It had great views of the beach. We sat and watched the whales go by every day.

It was right at the bottom of the lighthouse walk. The beach is across the road and a short walk into town for a yummy dinner or to the Byron Beach Cafe for the most delicious breakfast!

The apartment has everything you could need, is clean and in the perfect location.

My husband is a surfer and he could walk to a number of different breaks from the apartment.

We will definitely be back!
Terrific    05-03-2012
Yes, it was review appreciated the attention to the minutest detail regarding comfort and convenience; the views and proximity to beaches and amenities plus the lighthouse. I would come again...and again...and again!

I have been going to James Cook Apartments for 25 years or so...staying at various nos. (including the one that has been refurbished so that the bedrooms are now downstairs) - my three children have happy memories of holidays there (from the UK). The connection to Byron Bay is through my mother who grew up there and who took us on holidays from Brisbane as kids....a much different Byron then to how it is now of course...and different again in her childhood.
Stayed at #11 James Cook mid March 2012. The apartment was clean however bathrooms and kitchen could do with a referb as they were quite dated and worn. The linen was clean and fresh however the towels could be replaced a little worn too. Full kitchen with good size fridges. We Didn't cook but you could easily cook up a big family dinner and eat at the very large dining table - apartment very suitable for families or a group of adults.

Grounds and gardens surrounding the apartment were lovely and well kept. Didn't swim in the pool but it looked clean and well kept.

Location was good right across from Clarkes beach which was handy for a quick swim. 30 minute round trip walk to the Lighthouse which was a nice start to the morning.

The Famous Bryon Bay Cafe and Top Shop Cafe on Massinger were very close too if you don't feel like cooking. However Bryon Bay town centre was a good 15-20 minute walk but it's a nice walk along the path with views of the beach or you can walk all the way along the beach. It rained for a few days so we had to drive into town which wasn't a major issue but parking is a nightmare.

Booking experience with the agent was seamless and professional. Access to the keys on arrival was easy and hassle free, no annoying key pick up or drop off especially if your arriving after hours.

All in all great holiday at James Cook, we would return, hopefully there's a referb on the horizon???
Fantastic Break!    02-21-2012
Anyone looking for a wonderful holiday apartment will not be disappointed with # 11. The apartment is large, very comfortable and clean, offering the perfect solution for a break. My family and I recently spent 3 glorious nights, in Byron for a family reunion and did not want to leave. Stunning views, close to the beach, great coffee....made for perfect home away from home. Kids loved the pool and everyone had a bit of space! Garth and the crew @ Byron Bay Holiday accomm were fantastic, thanks!
