I have a MIN 2 night stay , 3 Night at Easter and 5/7 nights Xmas period .

Its your own private self contained property



The property itself is NOT modern , not 4 or 5 star , but more a traditional style relaxing holiday house ... basic no frills, a little Retro BUT with all modern furniture . It is very clean and tidy INSIDE as can be seen from the pictures, this is exactly how it will look as you walk in . I supply a few little things on welcome , such as tea ,cofee sugar, spreads , butter long life milk,cereal, juice , water, sweet treats, emergency tin food , tissues and toilet paper , along with shampoo , tooth brush, shower caps , paste and shavers if you by chance forget yours , and washing powder, tea towels ,bath mat ,beach towels, towels , Linen , doonas, blankets etc..

CLEANING option , after booking made you can opt to do your self on departure or pay $60 clean fee / $100 if Pet. please let me know

Torquay is just a gorgeous place for a relaxing weekend or short Holiday , its extremely peaceful and a really nice vibe , lots of shops and cafes to stroll to in all directions .. plus the main Torquay beach is at the end of street and the surf beach is a walk to the right , is walking distance one way and the other the other way .Everything is in walking distance which makes the location so good a lovely quiet peaceful street , plus not far from the famous Bells Beach or take a nice drive along the Great Ocean Rd to Lorne and Further, Golf courses, Horse Ridding , pet friendly beach.


from Airport you could get bus to city , train to Geelong , then bus to Torquay get off at bottom of my street and walk. I have had guests that have caught the train and bus to stay just need to co ordinate with bus at geelong , but its great as the bus stops at the beach end of my street so pretty easy re public transport if you up for the fun of it !! And i believe when the Bells beach surf comp on there is a bus to the comp .
