Magnificent view

My wife and I stayed at the Tathra Beach House for a number of nights in late July in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was spacious with a nice deck and large bathroom (shower only). The apartment fit out had only just adequate facilities. There is a small reverse cycle air conditioner for heating and cooling. This only just coped warming the apartment, but the weather was quite mild. Not sure how it would cope in really cold weather. The TV is the smallest I have seen in an apartment, it is not even as big as my computer monitor which I sit very close to, not a couple of metres away! There are a number of pay TV channels available, but limited to the usual minimum range, mainly sport and children channels. There is a full size refrigerator but the cooktop has only two elements, so no big cook ups. Luckily we had decided that we would avoid cooking in during our stay. The view from the deck is amazing with clear views of the ocean - we even spotted whale spouts during breakfast one morning. The apartment is located on a hill accessed from a separate driveway to the main part of the complex. There are a number of steps which need to be negotiated, so beware if you have difficulty with stairs. The bed was very comfortable with plenty of storage space. There was the pleasant, but unusual, replacement of towels every two days. The welcome and check in was extremely friendly and welcoming. Despite all my negative comments, we did enjoy our stay (hence the 'very good' score). I have no hesitation recommending Tathra Beach House, just beware of its limitations.

Manager Responce

Hi Dorro,

Thanks for your feedback and thanks for staying with us at Tathra Beach House apartments, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and also pleased that you enjoyed the view from your Ocean View Spa Apartment.

Generally being on the coast and with the ocean view apartments receiving abundant morning sun heating is not an issue, our experience to date has been that the reverse cycle air conditioners have been sufficient to adequately heat our properties however your comments have prompted us to further investigate.

We are continually upgrading our televisions to larger screens as required. Hopeful, in a few months we will also have NBN and will also be able to offer Netflix and an increased number of inhouse entertainment options.

All of our apartment options have full ovens as well as the hot plates, we also have BBQ’s throughout the properties, some apartments and villas have private BBQ’s as well as a full kitchen. We also have Easy Access apartment options that are fully disabled compliment and have no stairs at all. We always recommend that our guests give us a call to discuss their requirements so we can ensure that they stay in the style of accommodation that best suits their requirements.

Thank you once agin for your for staying with us and for your valuable feedback. We sincerely hope that your have an opportunity to return to Tathra, the whale migration North to South will be commencing again in a few weeks.

Kind Regards

On a work trip I stopped at Tathra overnight and stayed at Tathra Beach House. The only problem was that I only had one night there. Could easily have stayed longer in this relaxing and conveniently located accommodation. Friendly and helpful staff. Quiet and pleasant surrounds. Beach across the road. Great coffee and bakery nearby.. bliss. Thanks!


Hi Aken,

Thanks for stopping with us at Tathra Beach House, we have many guests whom stay with us while working locally in Bega and Merimbula. Our motel units are a great option for an overnight stay. Tathra now has a reputation for having great coffee and café options, the Gap coffee shop next to our reception opened a few months ago!

We hope that you can get back for a longer stay, thanks again.

A little disappointing

Family of four stayed in the 2 bedroom loft apartment. The apartment is nicely set out with good kitchen and fairly comfortable beds. The main issue was with the heat in the upstairs bedroom. It was over 30 degrees and with the a/c running it took hours to cool down as the heat is trapped with no where to go. Also not much privacy with our corner unit.



Thanks for your feedback, we have had some very warm lovely beach weather during March. Perhaps that was why you found the loft area of your apartment warm. All of our apartments are air conditioned and we have fans in the loft areas, the windows in the loft areas would normally provide sufficient cross ventilation, perhaps it was a very still day? We also have other apartment and villa options that don’t have the loft areas. We also have apartments that are not so close to the pool, while some guests like to be close to the pools other prefer to be further away.

Thanks again for your feedback we hope that you have an opportunity to return to Tathra, give as a call next time so that we can ensure that you choose an apartment that better suits your requirements.

Just perfect

This accommodation has everything you need. High standards in maintenance, facilities, location, interior decorating. We were greeted warmly by Deb on our arrival and this made a lovely introduction to our weeks stay. Towels are replaced every few days. The kitchens are well fitted with full range of cutlery, crockery, dish washer, microwave etc. If you desire a holiday away from the bustle of larger coastal towns but still have lovely cafes, pub, bakery, chemist and beautiful scenery and national parks then consider staying at this accommodation in Tathra.


Hi Wen

Thanks so much for your kind words, Deb is such a friendly person, I am sure she also told you about all the good restaurants and coffee options in Tathra! Our beautify coastal village is surrounded by National Parks and forests, making us very different to many of the larger towns on the Sapphire Coast, a place to relax and enjoy nature.

Thanks again, I hope you have an opportunity to return to Tathra Beach House again soon.

A great place for a family holiday or overnight break

The Beach House complex has a great location in great seaside settlement. We were only staying overnight so selected a double room with private balcony, it was quite roomy, clean and well appointed with good quality linen and most importantly, bed. The grounds are beautifully landscaped in sub tropical scenes. The pool & spa were very refreshing after our long drive. If you don't like the constant back ground noise of waves crashing on the beach or the many birds in the surrounding trees, then bring head phones😊 Tathra has great coastal activities, great facilities & eateries for all demographics. The parks & beaches are clean & very well maintained. Highly recommend the Tathra Beach House.


Hi Roger,

Thank you for your kind words, we particularly appreciated the fact that you enjoyed our gardens and pools, our staff spend a lot of time and take great pride in looking after our grounds. You stayed in one of our motel options, next time if you stay a little longer you might like to try one of our self-contained apartments.

Thanks again.

Kind Regards

Stayed: December 2017, travelled with family

A fortnight and Christmas with the music of the southern waves

The family has gathered, some or all, at Tathra Beach House for many years. Living 400 kilometres to the west yet having spent much of our earlier lives on the coast, we seek a haven by the salt water.

Tathra town is relatively unspoilt and is likely to remain so. It has a couple of small supermarkets and a Woolworths supermarket 20 kilometres away at Tura; a chemist shop; newsagent; butcher; post office; three or more caravan parks; a surf club and a patrolled beach as well as a long stretch for a beach walk to the mouth of the Bega River. The town is in two parts: that along the beach line to the north; and the town entrance that is the cliff above the beach line but set at right angles to it (roughly).

Bush walks, rambling hikes along the rugged cliff country, lakes and all the associated experiences.

I go there to read, walk then walk and read; eat and maybe even imbibe. Coffee shops seem to trade well and the bakery too in the holiday period at least. A pizza shop that turns out exotic pizzas assist the dietary provision and of course the fish and chip shop.

We love the Beach House and have stayed in almost all the accommodation styles there. Our stay last week was in the house high above the complex. Parking mostly is in separate garages. There are two swimming pools and a spa.

Tathra and Tathrans are extremely friendly and everyone seems to acknowledge everyone during street and beach walks.

We enjoy it. You might too.

“Excellent location and Service”

Have stayed here repeatedly over the past year and have always been happy with the accommodation and service. Friendly welcoming and helpful staff. Have often gone above and beyond with late checkin leaving my lights on and the heater/aircon on for me to start my stay comfortably. Well maintained, clean and comfortable accommodation. Highly recommend to individuals and families.

“Really friendly and very nice digs”

Reviewed by Dave B

This place is awesome. Right across the road from Tathra beach. In the middle of town, near shops etc. It was a quick business trip, but we got some time on the beach and had a nice dinner locally too. All new appliances and well-appointed accommodation. Secure parking and a very quiet aspect.

Fantastic visit. Great location, staff and facilities. We had a guide dog with us and were treated really well. Enjoyed a beautiful walk on the beach then drinks on the balcony. Planning to visit again with family.

“All Class and Quality. ”


Reviewed by rjmking

This is the pick of accommodation we found around Tathra. We travelled 4.5 hours for a cricket match and wanted to relax by the beach. The apartment was exceptionally clean, fresh and well appointed, right opposite surf beach close to shops and eateries. The entire setup with pools, parking and garaging is so comfortable and meticulously maintained. No one aspect stood out, everything did! The manager Rob deserves special mention for going above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Would have loved to have stayed longer and look forward to doing it again.


Hi Rjmking,

Thank you for posting your review on Tripadvisor, and thanks for your kind words. I was happy to help out!

We do hope you get a chance to return again soon, perhaps for a longer stay. I hope the cricket went well!





“Nice clean accommodation”


Attended the location with another couple for a wedding weekend. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. The units are close by to the beach, cafes and the bowling club. The apartment appeared to have been recently renovated and had everything you would expect or could need. The staff were friendly upon check in. The queen size bed was plush and comfortable... not so the king size. It was hard as a rock and by the end of the first night I had aching hips and back. Other than this downfall I would highly recommend.


Hi Angwin

Thank you for feedback and thankyou for staying with us at Tathra Beach House, yes, our Town House apartments have been recently renovated with new kitchens, floor tiles and dining furniture.

We apologise for the fact that you found the king bed firm. We generally receive positive comment on the standards of our bedding, our king split bedding should have a plush topper over the mattresses. We will investigate what happened in your situation.

Thanks once again we hope that you have a chance to return to Tathra soon.
