Modern home in great location

Kylie P - 7th April 2024

Modern house, nicely decorated with comfortable furniture and bedding in a great location, easy walking distance to the shops and beach. We were not impressed with the state of the kitchen though- all dishes were filthy and covered in food from the previous guests- to the extent that we seriously questioned whether they’d returned them to the cupboards without washing. We had to scrub every item we used prior to using it. State of the dishwasher is also absolutely revolting.

Hi Kylie, We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the location and proximity of your stay. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by our kitchen. We encourage our guests to report issues for assistance. We could have sent someone out for help. However, rest assured that we are on top of this with our housekeeping team. We hope to welcome you back for an even better experience.

Highly recommended, a great house

Graham S - 8th January 2024

A really great house with a lovely back yard for the family (including the pets). Highly recommended. Very clean with every thing you could ever need and more.

A really functional house, a great family home, with a well equipped kitchen, and a nice space to sit around with friends. A 10-15 minute walk to the local cafes.

Beautiful Home in gorgeous Apollo Bay

Deirdre F - 26th November 2022

A truly beautiful home. Clean, great position away from the craziness but within walking distance to shops and restaurants.

House was nice but amenities were stingy

Malcolm M - 27th September 2022

House is lovely but only 2 rubbish bags, two sachets of dish washing liquid, 2 dishwasher tabs, no tea towels, no dish scrubber, coffee machine but only 3 coffee pods - agent wouldn’t supply more. Dog hair on doona. Left a bad taste especially for what we paid.

Clean and Tidy- A Lovely Family Home

Fatin M - 25th April 2022

We lived our stay at Merihaven and we would definitely stay here again. So close to the beach and a short walk to town. A lovely and exceptionally clean and tidy family home, with everything we needed including toys and games for the kids to play. Beautiful outdoor area and backyard. 5 Stars!

Great place to stay, highly recommended

Dale D - 29th January 2022

Merihaven is the perfect place to stay, everything in the house is very well kept and is fitted out with everything you will need. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend.

Reply 9th February 2022

Thank you for your wonderful review of Merihaven! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you come back again soon. The owners have just had WiFi installed, so you can look forward to that on your next visit. Kind regards, Great Ocean Road Holidays

Great pet friendly home

Kyla S - 3rd November 2021

My husband and I stayed at Merihaven with our two Cavoodles and loved it! The winner for us is the big fully fenced backyard with plenty of grass for dogs/kids plus deck complete with outdoor setting and seating area. Our only let down was no wifi, be sure to take your favourite DVD’s as there’s no 4G for streaming. Overall would definitely stay again!
