“Stunning location, friendly owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2011

My husband and I just spent 2 nights at Robyns Nest and would recommend the self contained cottages as a lovely place for a getaway. The location and grounds are beautiful, the cottages are of a very high standard and Robyn and her cat Elsie are very friendly.

The cottages are very presented with everything you need, beds are comfy and everything is of a very high standard. Enjoyed the tennis court and pool and the boardwalk into Merimbula.

A wonderful resort tucked away in a lovely bush setting and right on the lake. So quiet and peaceful surrounded by beautifuly manicured gardens. Looking forward to going again very soon.

The size of the cottage was surprising as it was much larger than I was expecting. There was not a great deal of detail about the cottages on the web site therefore I did not know what to expect! I am very rarely pleasantly surprised with accommodation (in fact I am mostly disappointed as most places over-sell themselves), however in this instance I was more than happy with the room sizes, the bathrooms and the kitchen size and inclusions, particularly as the price was very reasonable especially for the time of year. The most wonderful aspect is the location - the surrounding lake and bushland as well as the manicured gardens are spectacular and very well maintained. I will definately be back and am looking forward to staying in the guest house with hubby.

I, my wife Eva and two kids; Michael 17 and Oliver 11 spend 8 beautiful days at Robyn's nest in Merimbula. The hosts, Robyn and Michael were very kind, helpful and friendly. We would like to thank you both for the warm welcome, your kindness, smile and support throughout our stay. We were looking for a place where we could moor our 6.5m boat and we've chosen Robyn's nest with a private jetty. The place exceeded our expectations. Usually we spend holidays overseas in 5 star hotels. We felt right at Robyn's nest, the cottage itself was very clean, equipped with all we needed. The fridge, washing machine, microwave were updated in brand new condition so was the linen and everything else in the cottage. Most motels / resorts in Merimbula are in close proximity to the road but Robyn's nest is located away from the noise, down the private road which takes you down the hill right by the lake where Robyn's nest is located. I recommend taking the boardwalk which leads you from Robyn's nest to the city along the lake edges where you can take some nice pictures. Speaking of walks, take the walk from the Regent Park up the hill overlooking the waters. I and Michel dived to the Tasman Houler which is located on 30 meters. It's an easy dive suitable for a wreck first timers. Diving from the rocks near wharf is tricky and special care need to be taken while going out of the water; always position yourself so you can maintain contact with rocks at all times. Oliver enjoyed the pool and I with Michael enjoyed the 75cm flatheads we cough on the lake and a few Tuna we've taken while trolling on the open. We spot dolphins while having diner at the aquarium restaurant on the wharf. We recommend the place for a dinner and coffee. There are no waves on the lake at any time so we were able to tow an inflatable behind our boat providing tons of fun for our kids. Merimbula is a quiet place where you can recharge while enjoying beautiful main beach with good waves and estuary system with safe shallow crystal clear waters. We recommend Robyn's nest for anybody who value good service, good facility nice views, peace and quiet but also good variety of outdoor activities related to ocean, beach or lake.

Sadly, my wife and I could only stay one night on our journey to Sydney but we could happily have stayed for one month. Stunning location and wonderful service from Robyn. Best omelette I have ever had!!!. I left a jumper at a restaurant in the town and Robyn tracked it down and arranged for it to be forwarded on. Really good attention to this matter - greatly appreciated. Loads of wildlife to enjoy in surrounds of the property and grat facilities - if only we had had more time!!

John and I had a wonderful stay. It was just lovely to take time out from a busy schedule in this peaceful, tranquil place. We were looked after well by a friendly staff - Robyn was very informative about t he area. We had a superb table at breakfast time overlooking the lake. The food was excellent. Everything was perfect.

Robyn's Nest: beautiful one day, perfect the next. It was a spacious and luxurious cabin, with glorious views, quiet and close to everything you could want for a getaway weekend. Our host was gracious with her knowledge and eager to point out Merimbula's many fabulous restaurants.
