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.

The apartments are in a nice location (maybe a 5 minute walk to the nearby beach, as well as being opposite the lake) - I wasn't sure what to expect, as it was a relatively late booking and there wasn't much on offer in Merimbula at the time, but the photos are a genuine reflection of the accommodation, which is great. Whilst the apartments aren't overly spacious for a larger family, there are still 3 BR with 2 bathrooms, and the managers are very accommodating with bedding arrangements. Booking was super easy and Jeanette was really helpful and responsive when we were there. I thought they reflected good value for money.

The apartment was very spacious, well designed, and beautifully furnished. It had lovely views across the lake towards Merimbula from the balcony. The shower was amazing and the spa bath was an added bonus. Would definitely book here again.

We enjoyed a few days of respite in Merimbula, a ground floor 2 bedroom apartment. There was a huge bathroom, designed with disability use in mind, so if needed plenty of access for a wheelchair. Walking in the first view through large full windows of Fishpen. This unit has direct access to the walking path in front of the unit. Noted was a comfy bed, and pillows, a big lounge and 2 large chairs with lots of cushions to relax in. A table and chairs outside the front window to sit and eat breakfast while watching the procession of holiday makers, oyster boats, great view in the dusk of the Fishpen across to the lights of Merimbula shops.We could stroll across the bridge to the shops or walk the other way and which led to the beach. A small coffee hut available in the mornings. Fish and Chips and cafe in a short five mins stroll. Great position and the booking was easy, Jeanette was very helpful.

Location was great, right across from water. We had ground floor unit. We could sit outside, have nice views and have plenty of space with grass area in front of us. Also balcony above us provided a little bit of cover in case of light showers. Unit very spacious and comfortable for 3 adults. Excellent amenities. 2 bathrooms is excellent. Car parking space and easy to get to. Not much sound insulation from floor above, so if you have noisy neighbours above who insist on dragging chairs and walking in high heals late at night, you will hear this.

The luxury of these apartments comes from the spectacular location and uninterrupted view of the bay and Merimbula town. The apartment itself was "nice", but not our idea of luxurious. Reasonably well appointed but if you are staying for more than one or two nights, be sure to take a hair dryer, toilet paper, tea, coffee etc. Although the apartment promised a DVD player, there wasn't one. On a very wet day it would have been very handy. TV is free-to-air only. We encountered a couple of issues with the apartment on our arrival and these were attended to quickly and courteously. We enjoyed our stay in Merimbula but would not stay in these apartments again.

We recently stayed for 3 nights. Lovely big apartment, close to the town yet far enough away to be really quiet (apart from the occasional aeroplane). Walking distance to the beach and lake. The Fishpen is the best part of Merimbula to stay in my opinion. Highly recommended.

We rented 3 units and they were very clean and spacious. One of our children was unwell and owner was extremely helpful & resourceful & quick. She even helped us planned our drive route to Sydney to avoid the bushfire road block without us asking. Best service! We love Merimbula and this property very much! Cons I would say just the small flight of staircase up to 2nd floor that's all.
