    5/5 Excellent


      Our week stay was brilliant from start to finish.The apartment was perfect, the location great a stroll to the beach and surf club. We had my 80 yr old Mum with us, nothing was too much trouble. We did not know prior to booking that the owners lived underneath. This was not a problem, it was like they were never there! The apartment was luxurious, the bath robes were fabulous and the little treats in the fridge made the arrival special. The apartment was fully equipped, everything you could want (apart from a pen and paper). I would definitely stay there again and highly reccomend it.

        Great place to get away

        Very well located close to everything. You really don’t need to bring anything to this property. Just your beach towel. Owner was very friendly and although they live downstairs it is very private.

          Wonderful stay

          We had a wonderful stay in this luxurious upstairs apartment. The owners live below, which we didn’t realise before we booked and I was a little taken back at first but you wouldn’t even know they were there. They were extremely quiet and you couldn’t hear any noise whatsoever from their home below. Everything was immaculate and appliances were first class. The kitchen was very small but we didn’t intend on cooking at all and we ate out most days. The little touches like the food in fridge upon arrival, tooth brushes, top quality soaps and shampoos, were all wonderful little things we were surprised with. It was close to everything we needed, the only small issue was a crying baby extremely close each morning which woke us but still didn’t stop our enjoyable time spent there Thanks jenny & Eric

            Beautiful apartment

            We are a family of four, two adults and two small children aged between 1 and 3, who stayed at the Merewether Excelsior for two nights. The apartment is absolutely stunning and in a great location, just a short walk from the beach and restaurants. Jenny was a wonderful host, who really does think of everything her visitors may need. The welcome pack of bread, milk etc. was a particularly nice gesture, which provided us with breakfast for the entire weekend. The books for the kids were also a really nice touch. We're seasoned travels but travel with small children can be stressful. However, on this occasion it was a truly enjoyable experience. We will most definitely be returning to the Excelsior in the not too distant future. Thank you Jenny.

              A lovely place to stay.

              With the beach down the street and an oval right behind the house this place was perfect for my family with our 2 active boys. We enjoyed the extra touches like Sheridan sheets, Aesop soap and lotions and Nespresso coffee machine. I was even able to pamper myself with an appointment to get my hair done at the salon downstairs. We had a lovely stay.
