This was the 3rd or 4th time we have stayed at the Bayview. It's always remained clean, quiet, comfortable and very well managed.
Our apartment had 2 bedrooms, the double with an en-suite. There is a second bathroom with a spa bath. Being on the first floor, there are only two floors, we had a balcony with uninterrupted views over the lake across to the town. Beautiful. A great spot for breakfast or observe the comings and goings on the lake.
The apartments are directly opposite the lake and the surf beach is only a few minutes walk away.
There is a flat, safe walk to town which takes about 20 minutes each way depending how long you stand on the bridge looking at the fish or resident seal below.
A week is never long enough.
If you are into fishing, kayaking, stand-up boarding or surfing this is an ideal spot to locate yourself.

Room Tip: Upstairs for the views but if you don't like stairs go for the ground floor. Those rooms still have patios and good view.

These apts could be difficult in peak season as they are closely aligned to each other but in May it was very quiet and perfect for our needs. Our 2 bedrm apt was spacious and had all the modcons you need for a short and sweet stay. The managers were obliging after some prompting and we enjoyed three nights stay. Good kitchen, bathroom and lounge with nice outside seating close to the pool and overlooking the lake. Quiet location and easy walk to both beaches or the main strip. Only downside is the musty carpet and shoddy couch but otherwise clean and comfy. I did like having a good washing machine and the spa. No cooling but there is a fan for the heat of summer.

Room Tip: upstairs may offer even better views but downstairs are also attractive views. Depends if you want to walk up and down.

Just spent 7 nights here with my husband and 3.5 year old. Absolutely LOVED the location. The beach was at our doorstep. Our daughter had a wonderful time. Apartments were very clean and spacious. The location was also very quiet. The views from our top story balcony were gorgeous and we will definitely stay here again!

We came to be booked in here by chance as the helpful lady in a previous motel rang ahead and booked it for us during peak school hols and long weekend. We were offered a very good rate per night and thought we were going to arrive at a pretty ordinary place for the price, similar to many plain motels we have stayed at.

All that anxiety was relieved when we arrived and Helen checked us in. We were given a ground floor apartment and when we walked in and drew back the blinds we both said "Wow! I could quite easily live here"

The view out our front sliding glass door was lovely. Looking straight out across Merimbula Lake and only a short 30m walk over the path to the beach and jetty. The boats and pelicans at sunset kept my photographer wife busy for hours.
The manicured gardens and brightly coloured flowers provided a lovely backdrop for us to sit at our outside table for coffee and soak up the view.

Our apartment was super clean, tastefully decored in neutral colours and fully equipped with all the mod cons incl spa, washing machine and drier which got a good workout as we had been on the road for a few days. Especially nice kitchen with lovely views over the garden.
The bed was super comfy but the vertical blinds could do with a bit of adjusting as they didn't draw right across and you could seen in if standing outside. Also the light came in early if you wanted to sleep in.

We enjoyed 2 great days here and could easily have extended if we hadn't had commitments further ahead.

We loved Merimbula and all it's surrounding water attractions and things to do and some nice little speciality shops etc.

The only small 'gripes' we had with the apartment were:
Check in/out times were a bit restrictive. Office is shut and difficult to access after 5pm and the check out time of 9am didn't give you a lot of time to tidy up before leaving (as was required by the instructions to clean everything)
Sure, we always leave our motels and accomm tidy and make sure we respect the property, however we ARE on holidays and after paying for the use of the property we really don't expect to do all the housework like floors and bathroom. But we did on this occasion and only just made it out by 9am.

Internet connections were a problem here. My Telstra plan wouldn't connect and I had to buy their WiFi card for $10. This has happened a few times in our travels and WiFi costs are high in some motels. Why?

Just another comment, why can't the designers of these places make the loo (WC ) in a separate closet with a door and own extractor? Having the toilet in the only bathroom (with spa) and wash basin is pretty restrictive, particularly given the apartment is designed to cater for a family with 2 bedrooms.

Apart from that, we really enjoyed our stay at this apartment and will always remember the stunning view and nice gardens.

Room Tip: Apartment No 4 on the ground was good. Right on the corner and opened out onto the garden path to the waters edge. Also, don't have to lug all your gear up the back stairs.

Ground floor apartments are the best for kids, fantastic views of the lake 30m from your front door and short 2 min walk to surf beach. And 10 min to town
Apartment was very clean with everything you need - take your own linen to save a few dollars
