The SpaceLocated in the traditional part of Torquay, called " Old Torquay " ..its an OLD but cute traditional Holiday Unit / house/ beach shack at a reasonable price ranging from $130 weekdays in low peak , more for weekends and with the peak season higher . Its a PRIVATE , all to yourself , self contained rental with Owner NOT ON property so no sharing with others . It is children and pet friendly . I would love some info on yourself when booking, I do have min. 2 night stay with longer min. at Xmas and Easter . My Calander clearly shows available days as long as min. number is selected
LOCATION In an easy central location ...for interstate travellers there is even a door to door drop off n pick up from Avalon Airport (Murrell bus company) and the Geelong to Torquay bus stop is at end of street .
House is Close walking to both the MAIN and SURF beaches, with Main beach at end of street , Surf beach sort off accross and over . Close to various cafes all direction , shops , Torquay Pub and local bus's. The property itself is NOT modern , but more a traditional , rustic old style fashioned holiday house / shack , for which i love and care for ... no frills BUT with all modern furniture . It is VERY clean and tidy INSIDE as i am quite fussy on this so please consider that old V's clean is very different !! . The pictures up are exactly how it will look as you walk in .
If you PREFER modern 4 / 5 star place , there are many new gorgous stunning modern new built places in torquay you can also choose , so id rather you be happy and look around rather than rate me low stars because you didn't read my honest description or look through pictures
I supply a few little nice things on welcome , such as tea ,cofee sugar, spreads , butter long life milk,cereal, juice , water, sweet treats, tined foods , tissues and toilet paper , washing powder , tea towels , bath mat , beach towels ... There are doonas, pillows , blankets , Linen and bath towels supplied but you are more than welcome to bring your own , some DO LIKE to bring own linen and towels which is just fine . My Linen/ towels are machine washed and dryed in dryer , i dont iron the linen !! and i dont have it dry cleaned like hotels would as it is very expensive at $60 just for a double bed set and towels !!!
If linen or towels damaged or lost it will be placed under bond damages.
Property has 2 bedrooms , sleeps 4 , One with a double bed and other has 2 single , plus has a Trundle bed for 5th person if need arises ,but please be aware maybe a bit squashy for 5 adults . . Tv with lots of DVD 's to choose , a CD/radio player , board games , cards ,colouring books for kids, puzzel books for both adult and kids, beach toys , little remote control cars and a few assorted toys as well as books to read and 2x boogie boards (please replace boogie boards if lost or broken ) It has good sized bedrooms both with big traditional cupboards with loads of hanging space and draws .
The second bedroom has its own TV ( no ANTENNA ) that plays CD,s ONLY or old fashioned VIDEOS ..i have lots of old videos , mainly KIDS ones , so thats great for quiet time for kids after a long day at beach and play .
It has a little comfy lounge with open big kitchen BUT is a little old fashioned re cupboards , but the stove is brand new and clean , fridge is modern new and clean and the kitchen has all things like home plus microwave and washing machine . Bathroom has Shower and large Laundry tub rather than a vanity and has a seperate toilet .
Closed in private back yard and BBQ.
It is a a pleasant ,warm and cute living space for a nice little holiday or fun weekend getaway . It is not located right on the beach but is only 400 mtrs to Torquay main beach which is at end of street and close to surf beach as (URL HIDDEN) you have easy access to either beach . Shops are in all various directions plus local Torquay pub very close . Great for couples, friends or a family at a reasonable price .....the local Motel , one miles from beach is more expensive for just a room with 4 beds squashed in and no kitchen or yard so i think great value for money especially due to location plus very safe and children friendly . .
CLEANING option , after booking made you can opt to do your self or pay $80 clean fee / $120 if Pet ..PLEASE LET ME KNOW your preference...and i will ask as well .
I DO NOT charge a cleaning fee automatically so all i request is that you leave as CLEAN it was when you arrived, plus BBQ if used ..if the property is not left in a clean condition , a clean fee as above option will be deducted from bond .
re PETS , i am happy to have , but not up on furniture and the property must PLEASE be cleaned and all pet hair removed from floors, furniture, rugs , cushions etc.. i do have a vacume , i find works better on the rug if you take head off and use funnel ,( pet hair is REALLY hard to remove) and get on hands n knees do bit by bit and if you have a hairy pet , maybe bring a de pet hair remover if such a thing ?? , as some guests dont have pets and i like to allow all types of familys to stay .
I do hope you enjoy as much as i do spending time there, i have given as much detail as i can and as honest as i can about my cute little holiday house .
Arrival time generally 2pm ..earlier if need on request , please just ASK me as in most cases i allow to arrive as early in morning as you like and check out time about 11 am / 12 pm so i can come check /clean property re bond etc,. No SCHOOLIES, and please inform me re pets if you bring... re PETS , i happy to allow.
LONG description i know , but best to be honest and as exact as possible Guest Accessprivate back yard with BBQ , car parking on side of property with plenty of street parking as well , Its a semi free standing unit , but with 5 others on the block of land , so you just need to be considerate with noise and others, but the whole block is child friendly and safe Interaction with Gueststhis is private rental all to yourself , i am not on property ,if need PLEASE just call or text me ANYTIME The NeighborhoodTorquay is just a gorgeous place for a relaxing weekend or short Holiday , its extreamly 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 ...yet 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.
