"This is a brilliant apartment. It is ideally located on the Richmond River and is a short walk to the centre of Ballina. The fittings and furnishings are all of the highest order with the beds being exceptionally comfortable. The kitchen appliances are all of high quality as is the crockery and glassware. We could not fault Villa Riviera in any way. The photos are a true reflection of the apartment which is often not the case. Do yourself a favour and book a week here"
