Beach Cabins Merimbula
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

We loved our 5 nights at our beach view cabin. We were warmly greeted on our arrival and the rest was smooth sailing. We've stayed in many 'cabins' around OZ and I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It's a little bigger than what you usually get, it was very clean and the grounds of the park were immaculate.
We had cabin 3B and it had unbeatable views of the beach (worth the extra money). You can walk down the hill to the beach and lake or walk the other way to walk into town which is approx 2km and has a few steep hills but we did it 3 mornings in a row and it's a beautiful walk. The drive takes less than 2 min.
The pool was well maintained and although we didn't use the BBQs they looked updated and well maintained.
We definitely will be coming back!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom park setting cabin for a week for the second year in a row and have booked again for next year. Here's what made us return and what makes this place stand out:
-The location is incredible. You can walk down the hill to the ocean in 2 minutes. The view from the resort is breathtaking.
-The owners/hosts are welcoming and helpful. At the busiest time of year they kept the place immaculate. Well done!
-The cabins are lovely and clean with spacious bedrooms and a nice living area. Our family of four was very comfortable and found the cabins to be good value.
-The pool and playgrounds are great for kids. Our kids loved every minute of our time there.

Thank you Kevin and Cherrie for another fabulous stay.

We stayed in a beach front cabin. The cabins are very comfortable, inexpensive and have a million dollar view! Our well behaved dog travels with us - and is allowed inside the cabin with us. We were fortunate to have lovely weather and were graced with the presence of frolicking whales in our back yard.

Room Tip: Beach front cabins offer spectacular views.

Well it is whale time again, so glad you enjoyed your stay, sorry for the late response, as you can guess the cabins are constantly busy & why not with this wonderful "back yard" as you call it.
Look forward to your return visit. Cheers Kevin & Cherrie

Beach Cabins Merimbula at short point is an amazing place to stay at. Both Cherrie and Kevin owners are amazing to deal with and always make us feel like we are one of their family. Amazing place, great atmosphere and stunning views. what else could you ask for? James Taylor

We stayed for 5 nights in the cabin. It was a great place to stay and Sherry and Kevin made our stay great! They are really lovely people who helped us out with whatever we needed. The cabin was very nice and clean and well equipped, we could get some DVD's to entertain us during bad weather and we have lend some free bodyboards to try and conquer the waves, which unfortunately we have failed :-) the rest of the premises has been really well maintained and we were sad to had to leave since the cabin park was fully booked at that moment. Hope to come back one day!

We had a great little holiday in one of the beach studios. It was great value considering the location. A minute to the beach and awesome sunrises. Will definately return again and recommend the studios to our freinds.

The cabins are situated on quiet, well kept grounds, at the end of the road just before Short Point Beach - a beautiful beach, suitable for surfing yet next to a peaceful lake, which makes it a perfect setting for a group who would like to surf, yet have calm waters to swim in. The cabins are uniquely shaped and spacious enough for a couple. However, due to its shape the ceiling is quite low at some points and there is a beam stretching across the area for walking, which makes it quite dangerous for tall people. You constantly have to be aware of this beam, which is painted the same colour as the rest of the ceiling, or keep whacking your head against it – we solved this problem by sticking a bright coloured plastic bag to the beam to make us more aware of it. The bathroom is not very well ventilated and due to the set up (the shower area is only protected by a shower curtain and nothing else) the entire bathroom floor tends to gets splashed with water when showering. They provide soap for washing your hands but do not provide any shampoo or showergel so bring your own. If you intend to relax on the bed to watch TV, you might have to move the TV higher as it is located on a platform that is below feet level when lying down, which makes it a bit hard to watch. They provide a portable heater but no airconditioning or even a basic fan so it got pretty unpleasant & stuffy with the doors shut. We decided to leave the front door open – unfortunately, there were smokers sitting outside next door and on a number of occasions, their cigarette smoke filtered into our room, due to the layout of the cabins. We did not use the crockery/cutlery provided as the cupboards needed a good clean. The cabins are provided with a table and 2 chairs outside for guests to relax on. However, there is absolutely no shade outside the cabins, which means you sit there at the mercy of the elements. We tried out this accommodation on an internet deal which promised :-

- a free scrumptious lunch at our choice of restaurant (we were not given a choice at all. Instead, we were given a coupon to the cheaper restaurant, told that was all they had and then given another coupon for 10% off a paid meal at the more expensive restaurant). The “free scrumptious lunch” wasn’t that free after all – when we got to the restaurant, we were told the coupon was only valid for $10 off each of our main courses and we had to pay the difference for the rest of the meal
- 2 for 1 coffee at a particular café (we were given a deal at another café instead)
- late 11am checkout for a lazy morning (we were told that we could not have the late checkout because it was “subject to availability”, even though it was not stated in the deal conditions that late checkout was “subject to availability”)
- free wi-fi (the lady at reception informed us we had to pay for internet use)
- a bottle of wine on arrival (we had to ask for this, before it was reluctantly given to us)

As soon as we checked in at reception, the above mentioned lady immediately started complaining about the deal and how everyone was coming at the last minute to redeem it and how everyone wanted weekends. She then continued to whine about how she would never do this deal again as she wasn’t making much money on it. We were made to feel as uncomfortable as possible for staying there on a discounted deal and she mentioned at least 3 times during our check in that we had to come back again to stay, i.e. on full price. If we ever decide to holiday in beautiful Merimbula again, we would rather stay at the caravan park across the road!

Hi Strawberrychocs, Sorry that the Cabins were not what you envisaged. Your stay was on a voucher that included 3 nights accommodation, lunch, plus a number of discount vouchers to cafes, restaurant, and attractions for $268 .At the time you purchased the voucher for an extra $50 a Beachfront Studio (fully renovated) was also offered but you chose the cheaper option. We are 3 1/2 star self catering cabins of unique design and we do not appeal to everyone. As you stated we do not supply shampoo but we do provide a soap dispenser. The cabins are not air conditioned but all cabins have a fan. The kitchen cupboards are old but i would argue that they are not clean (see most of the reviews). New kitchens will be installed over the next 2 months in these last few remaining cabins to bring them in line with the rest of the park as we continue to renovate the cabins. As stated to you at reception we will not be doing another voucher offer with Living Social as they obviously "over sell" what we have to offer and what is provided in the voucher. We are having difficulty accommodating people as the vouchers expire in a few weeks and we are not provided with any contact details of voucher holders and many have left it till the last minute and are upset when we cannot accommodate them. We are sorry that we did not meet your expectations and that you didnt enjoy the meals you sampled. We hope you enjoyed the bottle of wine you claim was 'reluctantly' provided and otherwise enjoyed the beauty Merimbula has to offer.
