One of Accessible Accommodation’s guests, Karen Gillies shares about her stay in September 2023 at one of our exclusive properties, 7 on Merindah on Coochiemudlo Island.
Our stay at 7 on Merindah on Coochiemudlo Island was an experience worth sharing. My recent visit with my carer Nettie left us truly impressed with the impeccable accessibility and overall comfort that this accommodation offered.
In this blog, I’ll recount our delightful stay at 7 on Merindah, highlighting its outstanding accessibility features and the warm community we encountered on our trip.
From the moment we arrived at 7 on Merindah, it was evident that accessibility was a top priority. The property excelled in making everyone feel welcome, regardless of their mobility needs. The wide hallways were just the beginning; the entire space was designed with accessibility in mind. This thoughtful approach extended to the kitchen, where I could easily access the kettle, sink and microwave – a detail that had been lacking in previous places I have stayed in.
One standout feature was the presence of a shower commode onsite, a convenience that made our trip much smoother. Usually, we had to bring our own but 7 on Merindah had thought of everything. 7 on Merindah’s dog-friendly policy was a game-changer for us and our beloved furry companion, Sasha. The accommodation made it easy for her to be a part of our trip, ensuring her comfort and happiness throughout our stay. The island’s welcoming attitude towards dogs was a breath of fresh air.
Exploring the island’s natural beauty was a breeze, thanks to its well-maintained parks and accessible amenities. Concrete pathways and multiple accessible toilets ensured that everyone could enjoy the outdoors comfortably. Accessible picnic benches were another thoughtful touch that added to the convenience.
While the café we visited was not fully accessible up to the counter, the staff’s exceptional service more than made up for it. They brought a portable EFTPOS machine to our table, ensuring that Nettie and I could order and pay with ease. The dining area itself was completely wheelchair-friendly, allowing us to enjoy our meal without any hindrances.
Travelling to and from the island was a breeze, whether you have a car or not. If you’re travelling by car, it was easy access on the barge. For those without a car, the completely wheelchair-accessible ramps on both sides of the port made ferry travel a smooth experience.
Our stay at 7 on Merindah was nothing short of extraordinary. The impeccable accessibility features, the pet-friendly atmosphere and the warm reception from the local community made it a memorable trip for Nettie, Sasha and me. This accessible haven is a testament to the importance of inclusive travel experiences, ensuring that everyone can enjoy a relaxing and hassle-free getaway. We left with hearts full of gratitude and a desire to return to this wonderful place in the future.
