As I have traveled around the world (and lived overseas for a number of years) I offer to Australian's and International travelers some of the special features I have experienced. My advice to International visitors is stay at least 2 nights in the Warrnambool area as there is so much to see, rather than use it as a flying stop between states.
Note. December 2014/ January 2015 minimum 2 night bookings
The unit has complete privacy as it is self contained with a very high fence at the back of owners home. Only the driveway is shared. Free off street parking is included.
Interaction with Guests
I respect the privacy of guests, and once keys are handed over, I have no other contact unless they require any information from me.
Merrivale has an old history but parts of it have only been developed in the last 20 years. It is on the edge of the city centre and has the Merri river running through it which contains heaps of bird life and the river runs all the way to the sea. It is hilly in parts and on the south side has the golf course and sand dunes. I love it!
We are only 4 blocks from the railway station, 2 blocks to the golf course, and next to the rail trail (gate access) which can be used for walking or cycling to the wet lands or the beach.

I can't recommend this place enough, Wendy is incredibly friendly and made us feel very welcome, she really looked after us. The neighbourhood is nice and private and in a great location, very close to everything. The view from the unit is stunning, and there is direct access to the rail trail out her back gate. It was so peaceful, we didn't want to leave! Will definitely stay here again. Thankyou Wendy!
Can't wait to be back! As soon as we arrived late at night by the friendly Wendy the heating was on for us, fridge was stocked with items and Wendy was more than helpful in giving us good tips with getting around Warrnambool and to the races etc. The unit was better than expected... More than enough room for the two of us and all ammenities were great! Had everything we needed. Honestly one of the homeliest, cosy places i've ever stayed, with a lovely host chuicked in! Would reccomend to anyone!
We had a really great stay here, everything was just what we required and the unit was spacious, clean and really comfy. Highly recommend staying here! We will definitely come back and stay when we are next in Warrnambool:)
Wendy was a helpful and welcoming host and provided everything I needed and more. The unit is wonderful - private, self-contained, light and airy with a great view of a lovely garden and the river beyond. Exceeded my expectations!
We had a lovely stay in Warrnambool. The lovely unit on the river was just as it was described and Wendy was a welcoming and generous host.

Wendy was very welcoming, showing us the apartment and amenities, plus providing tips on the places to see and dine at. She also very kindly offered to dry our washing if we did any.
