Relaxing on the lake
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Fishpen, everything was as expected from what we read- really clean and tidy.
We appreciated the little things like, linen, towels, dishwasher tablets and the exterior extra toilet and shower for when you are sandy (when we finally opened the door!). The composting system the local council has put in place here the same in our council at home (which we love!) and it was the first time we could compost during our little NSW road trip, it made me very happy that the locals like Bronwyn have embraced it!
Some room for improvement with upgrading matresses- they were pretty soft and old, and also I didn’t fully understand the back bedroom set-up until we arrived (it has an exterior door but also a walk-through from the main room).
This won’t be the last time we stay here, thanks for having us Bronwyn, we can continue our love of that Fishpen vibe that I have enjoyed my entire life.
Overall the location is what you are paying excessive Xmas rates for.
My elderly parents, myself and my husband stayed at Waters Edge from the 28th December till the 3rd of January.
On arrival we had difficulty unlocking the keyless entry. This continued on and off for most of our stay until it finally completely broke on New Years Eve. Unfortunately it could not be fixed while we stayed there and so after being inconvenienced by not being able to lock up our belongings, we stayed there until we were offered a substitute key. Solution would be to actually have a back up key provided.
As far as the house went, it is a very nicely renovated small home and provides all that is needed to ensure you have a nice stay.
On a bad note, the beds were overall very uncomfortable as well as the sofa in the lounge room. All of the outside furniture was very deteriorated and needs replacing. As do some of the posts on the verandah which moved.
If you are not fussy about sleeping and sitting watching tv comfortably then this will be fine.
You are most definitely paying for the most amazing views and New Years Eve was very special with the fireworks. Close proximity to most of the hotspots, shops and very nice neighbors and the fact that we were allowed to take our little dog along help this rental achieve 3 stars..
What a view! Awesome location and well appointed home!
Our stay was absolutely amazingly beautiful in this accommodation. The home is easy to find, Bronwyn was an awesome host, and it was clean and well appointed. The reflections from the night lights and the morning sun on the water make this the best place to be in Merrimbula!!! Bronwyn was a very attentive host, we could not have asked for better, THANKYOU. Lovely mix of tidal movement, river views and so close to to the sea.....what more do you you need!! Nice to see that Bronwyn has put in Eco friendly air-con timers-well done you!
Thank you Jen for your comments. Merimbula is definitely a gem for those who have never been there. Glad Waters Edge exceeded your expectations. Hope to have you stay another time.
We stayed at the house over the New Years holiday period and all had a great time. Bronwyn the Property Manager was very helpful and always a short text or phone call away. The house was nice and clean and in a great location, across the road from the lake, a 5 min walk to the beach and a 20min walk into town. Highly recommend staying here!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Excellent location and short walk to shops.
Loved staying at Waters Edge! The location was great so easy to walk to shops, cafes and beaches. The house was updated and clean, bust most of all it was so nice to wake up and see that view every morning.
