“Happy holiday”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

What a magic place to stay, this is our 4th time and we have booked for 3 weeks next year. We had a two bedroom upstairs on the corner, the best views in Merimbula. We were with friends and stayed 2 weeks and had the happiest holiday. Wanye & Yutta are very friendly hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The facilities are good, bar-b-qu and pool and the rooms are spotless. Very reasonable price for such a wonderful position on the lake.

We stayed here for 4 nights in a downstairs two bedroom apartment. The apartments book up really quick so you need to get in fast!

The apartments are reasonable size, ample kitchen and utensils. Great location - away from the noise of the main streets of Merimbula and short walk to the main beach.

Bed was not the worst i've had but after two nights I found myself having to stretch every morning for around half an hour to get my back, back into shape.

Room Tip: Upstairs apartments are a must for the view but you have to be quiet at night with the TV and chairs...

The rooms are extremly outdated. Cracks on the ceilings and in the plasterwork around the bath. The shower is also no good for someone elderly with hip problems or someone pregnant like myself as it is quite a big step up to get in and I often found myself loosing balance. We also had to pay for the use of linen and towels, which included a towel each for our 4 night stay. We were also booked until the Monday but personal circumstances arose where we were required to return home and the manager who was quite rude lacked complete care and understanding stating 'look I don't care when you leave' and charged us until Monday anyway, even though we left on the Sunday. The rooms also offer no form of sound proofing at all! We were awoken at dawn each morning by phones ringing, people talking, cars starting, showers going etc. Was a terrible stay and would never recommend this place. Stay far away! There are so many better places that offer excellent customer service and an apartment that is up with the times.

Great value for money. Well located with lovely water views, short walk to the beach and town. Sunny balcony, clean, comfortable and well equipped with r/c aircon. Super welcoming hosts. Very reasonably priced and would happily stay again.

We got lucky with a last minute booking with Jutta and were so pleasantly surprised upon arrival. The apartments are so close to the action, and incredibly well maintained. Incredible value for money and we had a very comfortable stay. Beautiful views from the rear of each apartment onto the water, and a close walk to the beach. Highly recommended!!!

This is a gem of a place with an ideal location on the lake but minutes walk to beach. You cross the bridge to Fishpen & peace, calm & serenity settles on you. The apartments are immaculate with all you need for a stay in an area with great eating out options. Zanzibar restaurant in town is an absolute delight with delicious food. Wayne & Jutta are wonderful hosts of the apartments & welcome you back each year as friends!

Fishpen is surely the best place to stay in Merimbula - walking distance into town, roads that are flat and safe for children on wheels, and right alongside the main Merimbula surf beach. From Merimbula Lake Apartments you have the added bonus of views across the water - the boats and the pelicans during the day, and the pretty sparkly lights of the main street at night.

Structurally, these apartments are typical of the area - double storey blocks with apartments on each level, convenient off-street parking, a basic swimming pool and an area for the kids to run around. Specifically, Merimbula Lake Apartments are extremely clean, spacious and light. The furniture is very simple - and somewhat oddly laid out in the living area. The kitchen carries the absolute basics - if you're planning to stay for long you might want to pack in a few of your favourite gadgets or plan to supplement anything you're missing from the hardware store.

In order to manage a place like this, you need to have an instinctive desire and ability to make visitors feel like they've walked into holiday mode immediately. From the friendly and flexible phone booking service to the genial welcome on-site, management at Merimbula Lake Apartments have it all covered - wish we had stayed longer. Bookings from regulars are common, so get in early - like the rest, you'll no doubt want to be back.
