Our family beach house since the 1970's, it has many traditional Australian beach house features and is filled with memories! It's located right on top of Merimbula's primary peninsula, long point, and a 2-3 minute walk away from beautiful bar beach.
It's a traditional Australian beach house on Merimbula's prominent peninsula. The house sits between the calm waters of Merimbula bay and the wild ocean of Middle beach. The cliff top is prime viewing for whales during September and October.
The house has 2 bedrooms with a 3rd sleeping area upstairs with single beds, 2 bathrooms and an extra toilet, 2 living spaces, kitchen, laundry and 3 outdoor decks and outdoor shower. There's a deck upstairs with magnificent views over main beach and to Merimbula's hills and hinterland.
BBQ in a private (fenced) courtyard, Upstairs sitting room and deck overlooking Merimbula bay.
There is a caretaker who lives on site and she is very happy to share the details of the house and assist with helpful local knowledge.
The house has history. Lots of it! The area features some interesting modern Australian beach house architecture. There are many examples of my husband's beach house architecture in the local area, including the two houses opposite Long Point House as well as our old house 'House for Pam' right next door.
Understand that this is an old house that can creak and groan. It's original. There are very few places left like it. It's not precious or 'luxurious' but needs to be understood for what it is. You will understand the nuance of Australian beach houses when you fall asleep on the divan for the first time!
There's a secure yard for pets and please no smoking anywhere on the property.
Please leave the house tidy and dishwasher empty.
Holidays are full of memories and i started coming to Merimbula when i was eighteen with my then boyfriend who is now my husband. We have shared many wonderful holidays with family and friends in this house and when we lived here in the house next door.
I love swimming down at bar beach and catching the current , but i will swim when ever i can.
Watching the stingrays glide in and out of the current is a beautiful sight. The sea eagles cruising overhead catching the upward drafts off middle beach. Watching for whales and dolphins as they swim on by. It is fantastic being so close to all the wonderful national parks, some of my favorite being , Ben Boyd National park and Haycock point . Mimosa National Park, especially Nelsons inlet and Bithreys.
I eat the Pambula oysters and dream about them when I am back in Melbourne. We get them from Broadwater on Pambula Lake freshly opened.
I enjoy a movie when I can, but more frequently read .
Walking is a big part of my day often with our dog Bruce when in Merimbula I go down to short point beach and then take the track back along the rocks to middle beach and then home for breakfast on the back deck.
When in Melbourne I am a school nurse and a midwife and mother of 4, so life keeps me on the move.
