Very comfortable unit but the ones with the best views are up 2 sets of spiral stairs. They should probably let you know this before you check in. Fantastic views however over the Lake and very conveniently situated in town.

You can not beat the location of Penguin Mews! On the lake, meters from main street, shops and restaurants but still in a quiet spot. We spent a long weekend there in a spacious two bedroom apartment, ideal for short and long stays. Upstairs there was a large open kitchen, dinning, lounge area with a balcony and slightly obstructed views... More

Have stayed here twice now and will stay again next year. Last time we stayed in the top one bedroom apartment with the million dollar views. Loved it but the 2 flights of spiral staircase were the compromise for the view. But the manager did carry our suitcases up for us! This year we have stayed in apartment one with... More

The kitchen is so well equipped, saucepans, crockery, utensils, dishwasher, microwave etc etc etc. the balcony is huge with views over the lake... More

We stayed for several nights. Initially booked one bedroom apartment but changed after arrival as the one bedroom is way too small, has no privacy as it adjoins the manager's residence and has a shared balcony. View was probably spectacular but I would not felt comfortable using the balcony. Two flights of stairs were external, steep, steel spiral staircase, not... More

We stayed here overnight recently. It is in a fabulous location on Beach Street, with fabulous views over Merimbula Lake. Only about 200 m from the town centre. We were given a large apartment with a huge balcony. The apartment was spotless and even though it was close to the town centre it was very quiet. The apartment managers were... More

Superbly located to the shops/clubs of Merimbula. We had a front townhouse with clear view of the waterfront from the upper floor (living area), clean, well equipped kitchen and flatscreen TV with USB port, handy for those that take their own media to watch. R/C aircon very efficient in heating the upper living area. General furnishing quite basic - the... More

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.
