Perfect spot for couples, friends and families.Charlie - 6th February 2021
Beautifully cleaned and comfortable 'real' family holiday house--games, music, books, telly, wifi, heaps of local info etc. plus v. comfy beds, cotton linen and a bathroom to every bedroom. But mostly, the view to the sea and all it's moods and colours--perfect from morning coffees and sunrises to evening wines with seafood and oysters! We'll be repeat visitors.
Perfect!Bantry1 - 7th January 2021
Bantry 1 was perfect for our family Xmas holiday. The location was excellent and the house lived up to our expectations. Old charm, clean and well presented. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
Exactly what the doctor ordered!Russ - 10th November 2020
Like so many people at this time, we desperately needed a total break, and The Bantry and Merimbula provided exactly that. The house really feels like a large, well designed and well cared for home. The views from the verandah are stunning and there is easy walking access to great beaches and headlands - and a very fine coffee and breakfast kiosk on Bar Beach. There were only two of us there, but this place could comfortably take up to 3 couples. We definitely intend to return.
Charming apartment and magnificent viewsThea - 13th October 2020
Great week's holiday at the Bantry. Comfy furniture, well supplied kitchen, and the best views in Merimbula. We saw whales, sea eagles and of course black cockatoos from the front deck. The Bantry had a great supply of books, games and DVDs to while away the few days of rain.
Loved our stay at The Bantry 1Sui1 - 8th October 2020
My family and I had the relaxed time we had wanted staying in Merimbula. The charm and character of The Bantry 1 made the stay feel special though it was like staying home away from home, with everything you would need to make life easy. Would love to stay again.
Amazing beach house!Jamie - 13th February 2020
We’ve now stayed at Bantry 1 twice - beautiful house, amazing views, right near the beach. It’s the perfect place for a summer holiday!
Wonderful, Comfortable StayJMEE - 10th October 2018
We recently stayed in this very spacious and well equipped home, with our 7 year old Grandson. It was lovely sitting out on the deck looking across to the water, as you ate breakfast, with the bird life as extra company. You will need to drive to most attractions, but this most certainly is not an issue. You can walk down to the wharf for light lunch- with the aquarium next door. Booking was seamless, which is always a bonus.
Peaceful and beautiful locationMargaret - 1st April 2018
We were delighted with the cleanliness and comfort of the house, with perhaps the exception of the pillows!!
Looking forward to ReturningJulieB - 17th January 2017
Wonderful house/location/view. Perfect for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 young children) plus 2 grandparents. My 6 & 4 year old were able to walk the path to the beach without problem although they ended up preferring the waves at Main Beach. Everything you could need in terms of cooking and eating - we ended up cancelling a dinner reservation as we realized home had the best view and food on offer! House also had plenty of DVDs to entertain the children during down time which was a very pleasant surprise. The only negative (which is so easy to resolve) is because we were told the house came with towels & linens, we did not bring any bath towels. We were supplied with one single bath towel per person - no extra and no hand towels - I had to go purchase towels at Safeway. If I had been told that this was going to be all we'd get, I would have taken some from home. Note - linens were lovely and fine so no worries there (and we did BYO beach towels). My 4 year old cried when we pulled into our home driveway and said he wanted to go back to 'mrbula house!
Absolutely everything you could wish for!JANE - 19th March 2016
Our family has just returned from a blissful week at the Bantry 1 in Merimbula. On arrival we were really impressed with how clean it was, the interior design, and how well-stocked it was- the kitchen had so much crockery, cutlery, glassware etc- the owners have thought of everything. Great value for money. The Bantry 1 has a view to die for and is only about a 5 - 10 minute walk from Bar Beach, although there is no clear path and it's a little dangerous with young kids. Overall we were very happy and would definitely recommend the Bantry 1 to both couples and families.
