“I, along with two friends, stayed at Hugh and Ros\'s house in Merimbuls NSW Australia in April 2017. Good location just a short walk into town, large house with everything you need for a very relaxing holiday. Hugh and Ros had left us loads of local info and even a box of chocolate plus a bottle of wine! Would heartily recommend this place for a chill out time. Barry Moor.”
Hugh's reviewsAs a host (2)
“Merimbula is a lovely place and the comfortable house of Hugh & Ros has eveything you need, very central in the little town. We loved it. Hugh & Ros welcomed us like family members and we felt very cosy in their nice home. Thank you both!!! we had a lovely stay.”
Where is it?
Merimbula is a small coastal tourist destination of about 5000 people, half way between Sydney and Melbourne. It has daily air services from both Sydney and Melbourne. Major supermarkets and retail outlets are available in town - a five minute walk. Should you wish to eat out a variety of restaurants are also located there specialising in seafood. There is also a pub and several clubs. A 10 minute walk will also get you from home to the beach which is free and patrolled by lifesavers in summer time. A 5 minute drive (or 20 min walk) will get you to the 27 hole championship golf course (http://www.pambulamerimbulagolf.com.au). Another 4 golf courses are within 30 min drives. Fishing boats are also for hire on the lake.Should the cities be an attraction Merimbula has an airport with daily 1- 1.5hr flights to both Sydney and Melbourne (otherwise a 6hr drive to both). Canberra, the national capital where we have lived for 37 years is a 3hr drive by car and well worth a visit. Nearby National parks provide all levels of hiking tracks through bushland with spectacular coastline scenery. There is a thriving arts and music community and there are also a number of local art and craft galleries that are worth a visit. Merimbula is situated in an area called the Sapphire Coast - renowned for its beautiful coloured waters. Scuba lessons and hire are available. A cycle track runs from Merimbula to the neighboring town of Pambula Beach.
A real attraction in March April and again in September-October is the whale migration: https://youtu.be/nLbPyt8TjAM
