Great Family Beach Shack

  • 5 of 5

What a great few nights we have spent at Karin's beautiful beach shack. Karin was an excellent host and went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed. The place was more than perfect size for our little tribe of us and the two kids. A real surf beach house feel that's also very clean and quite comfortable. The back yard has two large grassed areas that were perfect for a kick of soccer with the kids and there is plenty of comfortable seating as well as a bbq if you please. The location was amazing, it couldn't have been any easier with a short walk to all the shops. I highly recommend Bell St Fish Shop for some yummy fish n chips. The beach is also a short walk away in both directions. So close you can hear it when you are getting ready for some sleep! Thanks so much Karin

Cosy coastal cottage

  • 4 of 5

We found this property to be neat and clean, offering us simple yet comfortable accommodation for our weekend. The location was the highlight - walking distance to front and surf beaches and the choice of many places to eat on the Esplanade. While it was quite a warm property, without a/c, we simply opened to windows to beautiful, salty breezes in the evening.

Perfect position for the beach!

  • 4 of 5

Many thanks to Karin for an enjoyable stay in her beach shack! You will find Karin to be a caring and accommodating host with a neat, clean and beach themed place to stay. It was a perfect size for us - two adults and 2 children. The property is well maintained, creative and relaxing. The kitchen is very well equipped and the small touches of welcome were much appreciated. Thank you Karin! The shack is also in very close proximity to shops and retail outlets which provided a little therapy if so desired.

The only downside for us was that the shack is not able to handle extreme hot weather (anything from 35 degrees upwards). There is currently no air con or larger trees outside the house to keep the temperature down ... so two of the afternoons and early evenings were very uncomfortable even with the provided fans.

Other than that we were very satisfied with the overall presentation and general comfort of beds and couches :). Torquay is lovely and I would recommend staying at the shack!

Cute little beach shack

  • 4 of 5

Although the house is a fair bit older it has been done up beautifully! quirky little beach shack in the most perfect position, only a few minute walk to restaurants, shops and the beach. We would love to stay here again!
