Merimbula’s Day Off
Ferris Bueller: ‘Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it‘.
Sound familiar? So why not head down the NSW coast?
Where you can relax with your friends, both furry and otherwise, and choose from a great variety of places to stay with your pet.
After a recent visit, I was happy to see that there are more pet-friendly places in this pretty town, of just under 7000 people, than when I went before. Oh, and the beaches are pretty awesome too.
Rolling Waves 3 is a truly remarkable and stunning property that is private, exclusive, and has direct access to Merbula’s surf beach. With incredible ocean views, you can relax and unwind in this amazing space. The property is not only great for families but for couples as well, who are looking for a perfect getaway. The main amenities are parking, air con and free Wifi, and Netflix. If you are to bring your pet along, you’re in luck, with pet-friendly stays available you can enjoy your time away with your furry friend while they have fun in the fenced yard on the lower level.
