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.

All good! This unit is very comfortable and well equipped. It is located, close to the ocean and walking tracks - and literally on the W'bool to Port Fairy cycling rail trail, a really nice ride. Good coffee and tea provided as well the makings of breakfast.
Wendy is a lovely welcoming host with lots of local knowledge.
Wendy is the most fabulous host, very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. Her unit is like a little home away from home with everything you need, a beautiful view of the river and little added extra touches that make your stay all the more special. My partner and I would stay there again in a heartbeat and recommend to anyone looking to stay in and around the warrnambool area.
The little house on the river was so cute & the view was amazing too. Wendy has a really cute garden and I really loved how scenic it was. Very private area & she let us do what we wanted. Apartment was spacious & very clean! Loved it.
A cosy and wellplanned studio with everything you need for a stay, cooking and laundry facilities if you need. The small garden next to the river was really nice. Wendy had left eggs, tea, coffee, milk marmelade, tomatoes etc for us which we really appreciated. Would definitely recommend this place to others!
Wendy was easy,friendly, and very pleasant. Her place is a little gem looking out on the River and the bike path, where we rode our bikes and soon warmed up on a brisk morning. Her place is very private: we could leave the curtains open knowing no one could intrude. It was simply perfect.
With many thanks, Charlotte and Alan.
