We now have bookings for four of the six weeks of the Summer Holiday High Season. You will need to be quick to book for a summer holiday in January at Ocean Break.
Ocean Break is a well equipped holiday apartment on two levels with wide ocean views and only 3 minutes walk to the beach. The open plan living, dining and kitchen area has a comfortable ambience that will encourage you to relax and forget the frenetic pace of everyday life. Through full length glass doors that fold completely to the side, you can step out onto your deck and have an uninterrupted view of the ocean. Sit on your balcony and watch the whales and dolphins or set off on a long uninterrupted beach walk. Two queen size bedrooms with ensuites mean that Ocean Break is a perfect choice for up to four people for a fuss free beach escape.
Ocean Break is not equipped to accommodate animals. Bookings including animals will not be accepted.
Ocean Break has two queen size bedrooms with ensuites and is designed to accommodate two couples or a family of four in comfort. From the light filled bedroom on the upper level guests can look along the southern deck to the ocean.
The second bedroom is on the lower level and also has beautiful views out to sea. In front of the lower bedroom is a second outdoor sitting area so that two couples can separately enjoy views of the ocean should you wish to have your own spaces.
We believe that Ocean Break has been furnished and equipped to a high level in order that our guests enjoy a beach holiday that will refresh and restore. To this end we include linen and house towels to make life easier for you. All you have to bring are your beach towels.
The owners reserve the right to require a bond for any booking.
The whale watching season is from September to November and sometimes into December. While we cannot guarantee that you will see whales from the balcony many of our guests have experienced this thrill.
As well there are whale watching cruises based in both Merimbula and Eden. From September through to early December large numbers of humpback whales travel past Merimbula. In the waters of the Sapphire Coast they can be seen lateral lunge feeding, one of the few places in the world where humpbacks can be observed doing this.
Some comments from our guests:
"Had an absolutely fantastic weekend. We loved watching the huge variety of birds in the callistemon - honeyeaters, wattlebirds, finches – as well as a yellow-tailed black cockatoo in a nearby tree and lots of bellbirds and skinks."
"We had beautiful birds eating literally out of our hands in the balcony every morning."
SOME COMMENTS FROM OUR GUEST BOOKS:
As a family we've all agreed a week has not been long enough so we'll hopefully come back again.

What a delightful place to stay. Rarely do pictures do justice, in your case we were thrilled. Gorgeous view, beautiful beach, lovely home. We saw whales on our first morning. Thank you for a lovely, relaxing place to stay.
Imogen & Angelo
This has been our first visit to Merimbula (Tura) and we have had an amazing time & it won't be our last.
Waking up to those views every day leaves you with a smile on your face.
Effie & Raj
Thanks very much, we had a lovely stay. Despite being April, our boys were in the water every day. Walking distance to the beach and the beach views can't be beat!

Never get tired of looking out to the Tasman Sea from the main room, despite this being our fourth time.

Had a wonderful week at Ocean Break. Waking up to the view was really special each day, and then falling asleep to the sound of the ocean at night. The superbly equipped kitchen made us feel quite at home. We will be highly recommending Ocean Break to anyone heading this way.

Our 2 weeks at Ocean Break have flown! This is our third consecutive year staying here and we still LOVE IT! We love the comfort of knowing that our accommodation will be comfortable, clean and has all the creature comforts of home...AND THAT VIEW!!!
Duane, Georgia, Rhys and Christine
Well what can we say? We started out with a 3 night rental and ended up staying a week. We simply love your Ocean Break! Your home is so well equipped and your kitchen is magnificent. The views are breathtaking ? your home is a hidden treasure. We would recommend Ocean Break to anyone without reservation!

Four days in paradise - unit is perfectly designed for 2 couples. We're impressed the way you listen to guests' comments and make improvements accordingly. Lovely decor and amazingly equipped - unusual for most holiday rentals.Thanks for trusting all of us with the "good stuff". Most unique and awesome view - no obstructions- wonderful sound of surf. Thanks for sharing this with your renters.
John and Becky, Ian and Kay
Every aspect of Ocean Break is commendable.
Furniture fittings bedding - all excellent and every appliance worked.
The smaller touches of games and binoculars (which were a treat watching the Sydney-Hobart fleet pass by) show your consideration to making Ocean Break a flawless and enjoyable experience.
Accolades to the cleaning folk who presented the apartment in spotless condition.
We sure hope to experience the treats that Ocean Break provides again.

This is a magical place, felt very at home. Love to return in fact think we could live here. Sitting on the balcony early in the morning and late at night takes some beating.
Anne and Keith, Birmingham England.
Thank you for your very generous offer of a week at your beach house as part of the recovery process following the Victorian Feb. Bushfires during which we lost our home, sheds and all our farm equipment plus 3 head of cattle. We enjoyed staying in your very comfortable home. The seaview was just magical and the sound of the waves relaxing. We do appreciate your kindness. Thankyou so much.
Fay and Alan
Thanks for a lovely stay. The apartment is set up so well with just about everything you can think of. We have enjoyed Tura and the surrounds. My husband made the most of the beach walks. The hills and the dunes are a challenge. Love the deck and the two noisy, cheeky visitors (rainbow lorikeet and baby) that we had on the first day were
wonderful. Not a long enough stay. We don’t usually stay the same place twice but this spot is an exception so we will be back.
Jen and Alan
We’ve had such a great time staying in your beautiful place. The view is something else!! We will have to come back in the whale/dolphin season. The kids had a great time and it was so nice that we didn’t have to worry about them on the stairs and the balcony. Thanks for an amazing holiday destination.
“WE WILL BE BACK!!”

PS Thankyou for providing nothing short of EVERYTHING!!
Had an absolutely fantastic weekend. We loved watching the huge variety of birds in the callistemon - honeyeaters, wattlebirds, finches – as well as a yellow-tailed black cockatoo in a nearby tree and
lots of bellbirds and skinks. We loved our first holiday in Merimbula and will definitely be back.
Thank you for providing such a lovely holiday house, clean, comfortable and with a beautiful outlook.

What a lovely place to spend a long weekend. The house, the beaches, the views, everything to enjoy the weekend. Plus the Olympics. Everyone so friendly and happy to chat and informed about their area. Such nice touches in the house with everything you could need. Butcher bird came visiting and enjoyed being fed. Wonderful photos to take home. We will be back sometime, maybe in the summertime.

Really impressed. The decor was casual but very smart, the view was beautiful, and only the week prior to our stay at Ocean Break we stayed in at 5 star apartment in Qld where management couldn't supply us with champagne glasses, Ocean Break offered us every size and shape of glass you could imagine.
Thank you, for creating a home away from home! In twenty years of stays we have never found all the comforts of home before. The views are just wonderful. The peace and quiet was just what we needed and were looking for … and how nice to have decent glasses to drink from.
We will be back!

Features of the area
Three minutes walk through the ti trees brings you to the beach. You can swim off the southern end, between the flags in the summer holiday season. Rips elsewhere make swimming inadvisable. The long beach is, however, ideal for a leisurely amble or a more energetic jog. There is excellent fishing in the area.
Within five minutes drive of Ocean Break are the cafes, restaurants and boutique shops of Merimbula. Alternatively you could walk to the shops in Tura Beach for your groceries at the large Woolworths. Ocean Break is well placed for you to play a round of golf or to explore the beautiful Bega Valley Shire should you feel like being more active.
"The rainbow lorikeets were cheeky companions and greeted us without fail each morning."
"It's such a peaceful place, we didn't hear any cars or motorbikes, just birds and the soft roar of the waves."
