Family-friendly holiday home in Melbourne
Merricks Surf Cottage is a hop skip and jump to the sand shores of Merricks Beach. This cute as a button, spick and span, 3-bedroom beach cottage is surrounded by established trees, lots of greenery and accommodates up to 8 guests. Imagine after a fun day at the beach, coming home to BBQ dinner and laughs on the timber deck with family or friends.
What you see is what you get, and Merricks Surf Cottage  is the original beach cottage and remains deliberately so. With an awesome location, enjoy absolute beachfront access through the foreshore reserve right out front.  Merricks Surf Cottage is steeped in treasured family memories and is now available for you to make your own.
Merricks Surf Cottage has all that you will need to make your next stay in Merricks totally relaxing, and tranquil, without all the fuss. Outdoors, there’s plenty of room for the kids to run around, kick the footy, or just hang out. This area is seriously peaceful and welcoming.
Inside Merricks Surf Cottage, open the full width rear timber doors and let the outside sunshine in. The main hub of  Merricks Surf Cottage, is the functional open plan kitchen/eating/lounge zone. Cane furniture and old world charm makes  Merricks Surf Cottage, cosy in winter and breezy in summer. A wood fire pot belly stove is on hand for chilly nights, whilst the split system and overhead fan will keep guests cool in summer. Enjoy the great range of books, and board games to keep everyone entertained. Really you won’t want for anything else.
The kitchen is basic, but comes with all the necessities for easy meal time preparation, including upright stove/oven, microwave, small appliances, large fridge, Aldi coffee machine and all the cooking gear for your stay. The pantry even has some basic cooking ingredients such as seasonings and oil. 
The 3 bedrooms are as follows: queen bed in number 1, another bedroom with 2 sets of single bunks for 4 more guests and bedroom 3 with single bunk set for another 2 guests. All bed linen is supplied as well as a bath towel for each guest.

4/5 Good

Great location for a beach break
Property was very clean and tidy. Excellent location with only a stone throw to a great beach. Check in process was a breeze and the property manager very helpful. No internet or mobile reception presented a small challenge but also ideal for a switch off. Bunk beds were comfortable but we personally found the queen bed to be far too hard. All in all, a great spot for a beach break.

4/5 Good

End of year break
Great location and a nice and friendly atmosphere at the house. It has everything you need for a relaxed, low key holiday.
