If you are looking for a great self-contained apartment in Merimbula then you needn’t bother looking anywhere else. The apartments themselves are very well appointed and maintained, as are the shared facilities. The location is perfect -close to the beach and town.
Overall this is a lovely apartment with a great view over the water. It has every facility needed and is comfortably appointed. However, first impressions are very important to me and to walk through the back gate to a weedy garden and a back door that is barely functional was disappointing. Other things in need of maintenance are the dishwasher, the general paintwork and the cobwebs between the verandah floor and the perspex/glass wall on the balcony. Also, for $240 a night, I would expect to have a shower with decent flow, not one requiring you to move around to get wet. Mostly it felt clean but some dirty dishes and glasses and dirty exhaust fans suggest a poor cleaning regime in general. I find it interesting that when renting holiday accommodation like this, the tenant has to agree to legal documents promising to not damage anything and agree to a range of officious rules and consequences but there is no requirement for the owners or managers to offer a level of comfort or maintenance consistent with the asking price. We have all the responsibility but very few rights. There are so many places to stay in Merimbula with great views. Next time we'll try somewhere else.…
Stayed 3 days during the kids holidays. The accomodation as very comfortable. Suitable for kids, pool onsite or just 5 minutes walk to the beach. High end applicances to cook or just 8 minutes walk to the town centre for restaurants. Highly recommended.
Great place to stay. Very clean, convenient and quite location, secure parking, Staff were very friendly and helpful. About your review process. 200 characters is too much for your review. Many people can summarise in a few words.
The position is very good The apartments are spacious but building is poor quality and fittings very basic You can hear noise from nearby apartments so hope you get quiet neighbours They have a low service model and we paid up front Although the units are not cheap they still charge a surcharge for using credit card even though there is no alternative for of payment aferred
We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment which was fully contained with a full sized kitchen, separate laundry with washer and dryer and a spacious living area. The property has two pools, is directly across from the beach and walking distance from the town centre. There was a great cafe serving breakfast / lunch / great coffee nearby (Cranky Cafe) A relaxing stay in a clean apartment which appears to be recently refurnished. Just a note, the rooms are not serviced after you check in.
We stayed for 10 nights over the New Years holiday period. We were extended family and had 4 units booked in total. We were obviously the unlucky ones. The unit condition and furniture was terrible. The paint condition (especially upstairs) was dirty, scuffed and in urgent need of a re-paint. The furniture was in poor condition, showing obvious signs of wear and tear, and in need of replacement. Cleaning (especially the bed underlays) were dirty and yellow. These units are not cheap, and we expected better. The other units in our group were much better, although we paid the same price as exactly the same type of unit next door. The location and facilities of the resort are great. No arguments there. Now, the management. Poor to say the best. We let the ladies in the office know our comments on check out, and were told that units are privately owned, and that they have no control of this. We fully understand how letting pools work, and this is rubbish. If management are doing their job correctly, they need to advise unit owners, and if they feel as though a unit is not up to standard, it should be removed from the letting pool, and not charge guest several hundred dollars a night for an average unit. If management think this unit is acceptable, then that's just scary. The lady on the counter pretty much fobbed us off and told us to email the manager. We did that a few days after we checked out. We waited 8 days with no response. We emailed with a follow up, and again no reply. After waiting another 6 days we called and spoke to the manager. He said he hadn't look at the email, and asked for a summary of our complaint. I gave him a brief run down, and said its best he reads the email, and then get back to us. He ask what we want him to do about it, and what we wanted. We said, its not up to us to ask, I suggest you read our email and come back to us with what you think is fair. Its now another 12 days passed, with no reply email, no return phone call. If this is how management deal with customer service, and guest feedback, it will be the last time we return. Beware if you you own a unit here, as management don't seem to care too much about customer feedback. Same goes if your thinking about a future stay.…
Unit 96 - beach front, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Ideal for our group of 6 adults. Very large open plan kitchen/dining/lounge along with large balcony. Under cover parking for 2 vehicles. Would stay here again without hesitation.
Very comfortable apartment (sub penthouse). Liked having a washer/dryer - made life so easy. Location cannot be beat - across the street from our favorite beach and so close to Cranky's for our morning coffee etc. Having pools to come back to after a day at the beach was nice. The storage cage in the basement was also handy for beach stuff that we didn't want to keep in the apartment. We hope to be back! Only "complaint" is that the dining chairs (fabric) and the carpet could use a professional clean.
Coast Resort is located in the BEST part of Merimbula for anyone wanting to take a summer holiday close to the beach. It provides great access to the town centre. It’s an easy, flat, walk over the bridge and most days you can just leave the car in the secure car park and walk every where. We have stayed in apartments with views over the lake, our preferred location, and those that face towards the sea. From this resort you can access the patrolled surf beach or the child friendly lake at Mitch’s Jetty, where you can hire SUP’s or kayaks, or fish or get a fishing charter… The apartments are clean, modern, well appointed and the two pools and tennis court are well maintained and popular. The staff at Coast are friendly and helpful. What more could you want?
