Opposite beach via ford oval. Opposite cranky cafe. Refurbished 2016. Clean. Off street parking. Managers nice. Nice spot for a week. Met some locals and attractive single guys. Couldn't accommodate us in Jan 2017 so we went up the road but will return to surf side.

Thank you for posting a review. Surfside is in a great spot and hence January is very busy for us and we are booked out well in advance. We hope to have a return visit from you.

Myself, Shannon, and my co-worker, Daniel recently stayed at Surfside apartments. We stayed 9 nights, price was very reasonable for the area. The managers are very friendly and helpful with what's on, where to eat, and even helped out with fish we caught. Very very nice people. We will be back one day and will call here first next trip....

If you are looking for a base without any bells & whistles, this is the place to stay, although pricing could be addressed as it is on the expensive side for what you get. The interior paintwork is funky enough, and all Merimbula has to offer is within walking distance. Its also quiet, which is a bonus.

Thanks Paul for the review. We appreciate that you enjoyed your time in Merimbula. Realizing that you did come at the beginning of a high season and only had a short stay. Surfside is in a great position with the beach opposite and away from the hustle and bustle of the main shopping precinct yet close enough to walk if...

Our family of 4 stayed 6 nights in a 2 bedroom ground floor unit. Originally it was a 4 night stay, but we loved it so much we booked another 2 nights.

Great place to stay, close to everything, lovely courtyard with BBQ and plenty of seating right outside your door, my only problem was the noise made by other guests as they were leaving as it was still quite early, but that is lack of consideration by others.
