Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ocean Drive Apartments is a self-contained unit, it’s like a home, away from home – super clean, very comfortable and it had everything we needed plus more – definitely a home feel vibe. Ideal for families or friends, to enjoy that much needed rest or holiday, especially if you’re on a budget. Check-in was super-fast and efficient. You get a key to access your apartment. The accommodation is away from the hustle and bustle of traffic and walking distance to the Merimbula Main Beach and Mitchies Jetty – ideal for walking, swimming or kayaking and depending which season you go, Short Point is a popular spot for whale-watching. There is nothing to fault. We had an excellent stay and experience and will definitely stay here again, highly recommend this place. My first time in Merimbula, I can guarantee that the locals are warm and welcoming and an ideal place for everyone to enjoy.

There is nothing to fault in this accommodation. The place is spotless and very tidy. Loved that it’s walking distance to Mitchies Jetty and Main Beach. What you see is how it was advertised. Will definitely stay here again, highly recommended!

... we had been planning to visit for a while and finally we got our chance. The unit was very comfortable and had everything we needed and more! Merimbula offered us plenty to do but more importantly the beach is close so you can just pop over for a walk, swim or paddle. We loved our stay in this well managed apartment with the sun coming in of a morning. YMMV

Had an excellent stay. The apartment was scrupulously clean and well appointed. Managers were very friendly and helpful. Property was very well positioned next to the ocean beach, but still within easy walking distance to the town. Sorry we couldn't stay longer.

We are very grateful to the hosts for allowing us to stay for two nights over a long weekend after our accommodation elsewhere fell through. The apartments are very cozy and comfortable. It has a home feel about it. It includes cooking facilities, laundry, dishwasher, Foxtel, heated pool and wifi. The apartments are ideal for families looking to stay for a few nights. Only a 2 minute walk to the beach and very short drive to the shops. We will certainly be back in the future!

My wife and I rented an apartment here during the Merimbula Jazz Festival. Very accessible, the units are self contained, away from the maddening crowds, close to great walking tracks and the beach and an easy five minute stroll from the Merimbula CBD. The on-site managers are 'top notch', and really do care for your comfort and satisfaction. Oh, and the Friday morning teas are a real HIT, yummy tucker ! Getting there is a breeze, you can either take an easy and interesting drive from Melb or Sydney, make it an adventure by taking a train and coach, you can even fly or float in - the options are almost endless. Weather wise it's a top spot, there's loads of things to do and there's eating venues a-plenty. And if you enjoy Oysters, it's a must-go destination. Go give it a try.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay for a week from the 21st May . Very comfortable and immaculately clean two bed room apartment equipped with all the necessary appliances. Very convenient to Merimbula township and only a few minutes walk to Cranky Cafe , an excellent spot for breakfast , coffee etc. Jenny and Hedley Seller made the stay even more enjoyable by providing some delicious scones, jam and cream for one morning tea. I gather a long standing tradition ! Would certainly return for another stay in this beautiful part of the world.

Ocean Drive Apartments were beautiful. My husband and I went for a 5 night stay for our wedding anniversary and we fell in love with the place. On entry we found beautiful bunch of flowers and a hand written card wishing us a happy anniversary which I thought was an absolutely beautiful thought. Customer service at its very best. Sometimes it's those little things that really make you smile. The apartments themselves were probably one of the cleanest I have come across and I have stayed at many in Merimbula. They were spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed and more. All the modern conveniences like free wifi, Austar, dishwasher, separate bath, and large laundry were just a few to mention. Unfortunately there weren't many photos available on the internet so we were going in blind but we ended up pleasantly surprised. My one word of advise to the hosts would be to possibly arrange to have some photos of the units put on their website so that future guests can have a look, but that's about it. Everything else was perfect. No complaints here. The manicured gardens, pool, children's play equipment and BBQ area were all beautiful and the morning sun on the balcony was amazing on a nice autumn morning. The hosts, Hedley & Jenny were beautiful happy friendly people! It's clear to see why they have so many returning happy guests. Location was great, across the road from the beach, 2 mins to the local take away and cafe, 5 mins to the lake or lagoon, a 10 min walk to town and even walking distance to the airport. This place was more than value for the money we paid. We will happily refer to family and friends and will be sure to return time and time again. I have nothing negative to say about this place at all. Thank you Jenny & Hedley for providing such beautiful units and making our anniversary holiday one to remember. We were so happy with everything and will most definitely be back!!

Stayed 2 nights and wished we'd stayed longer. Everything is just a short walk ie. to the beach , to town. The managers are so helpful and friendly and go out of their way to give you tips on where to go and what to see. The units are very clean and easy to live in.Will be recommending Ocean Drive. Thank you Hedley and Jenny.
