Penguin Mews has a fabulous location, beautiful waterfront views, close to cafes/shops/restaurants and right next door to Merimbula RSL. 4 adults and 2 children comfortably stayed in one of the townhouses. We found it spacious with an excellent layout and well equipped kitchen. The owner/managers were welcoming, friendly and most accommodating. Our family will definitely be back soon.
