Why David Dallimore chose Merimbula

We have lived in this area most of our lives. When deciding to ‘downsize’ we walked into this property and it felt like home - even though it was a 1955 building and needing a Reno.

We have travelled a bit but never really found anywhere else that compares to the scenery and beaches in this town. We are a little biased though.

What makes this house unique

The views from this house are both sides.

Beautiful ocean views to the north and town and lake views to the south.

Covered verandas on both sides of the houser allow guests to enjoy being outside whichever direction the wind

Is blowing.

The property is quiet and private. Bush and ocean behind you to the north so only the sound of the ocean, birds and native wildlife to soothe you.

A cosy wood fire to warm you in the winter months. All firewood supplied. If you don't feel like lighting the fire, simply press the button on the gas heater for instant heat.

Ceiling fans are in all bedrooms as well as the living area to circulate the heat in the winter or cool you in the summer months.

We recently stayed in Merimbula for a wedding and booked Muaklek Retreat after researching accom choices. We also had the opportunity to view several other houses where our relatives were staying. Without a doubt we had chosen one of the best places available in Merimbula. Not only is the property well presented, well appointed and well positioned, the little extras provided by the owners were unexpected but very much welcomed. You will not be disappointed with this property. This will be our only option for future visits.

Best Holiday Rental Ever!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous house - decks on both front and back made it possible to always be outdoors regardless of wind, rain or sun. Numerous thoughtful items left for our use such as numerous towels (beach and bath), shower cap, shampoo, body lotion, coffee, sugar, condiments, the list goes on forever - this is the best stocked holiday house we've ever stayed in. Denise could not do enough for us during our stay including assisting when a baby sitter fell through. We would highly recommend Muaklek Retreat to anyone wanting to stay in this beautiful part of Australia.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay. The views front and back were amazing, the house itself was terrific and everything we needed to enjoy ourselves was available. It was a short walk into the shops though a little steep for our 5 yr old on the way back. We love Merimbula and wouldn't hesitate to stay at Muaklek Retreat again. Highly Recommend

Best holiday rental!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most comfortable holiday rental we have ever stayed in. The wonderful touches and thoughtfulness made our first family holiday with our 4 month old so memorable. Very comfortable beds and a wonderful house. Amazing views. A home away from home for sure. The owners show so much pride in the way they present the house
