My wife & I stayed at Albacore Apartments in March for the first time and although this was one of several holidays in Merimbula, Albacore was by far the best accommodation we have experienced. The apartment was fantastic, large balcony, great views, spotlessly clean and Josie and Clint were great hosts. There is no doubt that we will certainly book our future Merimbula holidays with Albacore. Thanks so much Josie & Clint.

Looking for an improvement on our previous years digs in Merimbula, we found the Albacore Apartments filled the bill perfectly. Being a close walk to town and with security undercover parking for our show car, we will not hesitate to stay there again.
Our spotless ground level room was huge, with all that we needed including a very comfortable lounge, an important item that is often missed in many hotel/motels. The hosts Josie and Clint obviously run the place with energy and passion and are an absolute delight to stay with. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ground level rooms can be subject to noise, if other guests passing by, are not considerate. We experienced no problems during our stay.

This is a wonderful place: great location, amazing views right out your windows. Accomodations were incredible. A two-bedroom apartment with two bathrooms! Not often you get all that. Hosts were also friendly and helpful. The only thing we found odd--and inconvenient--was that you were expected to wash your own towels (washer & dryer in one of the bathrooms) and purchase necessary toilet paper, soap, etc. We've stayed in similar places to this and never had to supply the basics. Reusing towels and making our own beds for a couple of days during a multi-day stay isn't the problem, but having no room service at all is.

Room Tip: Rooms in the middle of the floor have the best view. Example: rooms 2, 3, 4 have better views than 1 or 5

Josie and Clint B, Manager at Albacore Apartments, responded to this reviewResponded 8 May 2013

Dear BKJ.
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Albacore Apartments.
It is always nice to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay at Albacore in our spacious apartments. We’re very fortunate that our location enables guests to have lovely water views from all apartments.

It is disappointing to read that you found our type of accommodation (fully self contained) inconvenient. We do mention on all booking sites that we are fully self contained, which is quite different to staying in a motel or serviced apartments.

A starter pack of toiletries and toilet paper is provided in your apartment, and once that is used you then purchase your own.

All linen and towels are also provided, and as apartments are equipped with a full sized laundry our guests often comment that they find it very convenient being able to launder and dry linen in their apartment at any time. Or alternatively replacement linen is available for a fee.

We hope you had a safe journey home and hope to see you again the next time you visit Australia and the Sapphire Coast.

Albacore is a fantastic place to stay, close to mainstrip of Merimbula everything at walking distance. Josie and Clint are the best managers I have every come across, there should be more of them, it makes the stay so much better. I stayed on the 3rd floor at the start of March the place is massive, kitchen and bathroom very clean and used the pool with the kids which was well heated, the way it should be! I would recommend this place to anyone, actually better not or I wont get in next year, so please poeple dont book in March.

We have been staying on the 5th floor in the same apartment for over 7 years. The apartment is well designed, clean, modern and well furnished making us feel right at home. The views are fantastic even when it rains. The location allows us easy access to all the shops, restaurants, clubs, beaches and of course the fabulous Boardwalk. The staff are friendly and very obliging to your individual needs and the two managers are always available for a friendly chat and local recommendations. We all look forward to this yearly holiday in which we see the same faces staying in the same apartments each year. No need to look anywhere else.
