About this listing
Boston on the Beach is a one bedroom apartment in our beautiful home in Torquay. It is a short stroll away from the Torquay beaches, Gilbert St. shopping centre, cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and public transport.
As you will have sole use of our complete upstairs area including bedroom, bathroom, lounge, kitchenette and balcony, you will have plenty of privacy. The only thing you will be sharing is the front door! The accommodation is strictly for a maximum of two people. It is not suitable for people with babies or children accompanying them.
We live downstairs and should you have any needs or concerns, we will be available to help.
Please note: we don't provide breakfast. Our house is a five minute walk to cafes, restaurants, bakeries and supermarkets. There are so many great places to have breakfast! If you wish to have breakfast in the apartment, we do provide tea, plunger and instant coffee, sugar, milk, a kettle, a toaster and a sandwich press.
There are views from the lounge and balcony across the treetops of old Torquay and out to the ocean.
Interaction with guests
Your hosts: My wife Louise is a volunteer at the Torquay Visitor Centre and loves to pass on her extensive knowledge of all the activities the Surf Coast and Great Ocean Road have to offer. She also loves to shop and can give you the lowdown on best shopping spots locally and in Melbourne. We are minutes away from beautiful walking and bike trails.
Within easy walking distance you will have access to sheltered beaches and the surf breaks of Torquay. A short drive away is the famous Bells Beach.
We have lived and travelled extensively overseas and throughout Australia. We enjoy sharing experiences with fellow travellers and are happy to give advice if needed.

Hi there. My wife and I are recently retired primary school teachers. I am a keen surfer, stand up paddle boarder and golfer. My wife Louise loves meeting and talking to people, keeping fit and working in the garden. We both enjoy dining out with friends and travel regularly throughout Australia and overseas. Our most recent travel adventures include Morocco, Spain and an eight week adventure through the Australian outback. We have a lovely new house in central Torquay. We love living on the Surfcoast and look forward to welcoming fellow travelers to this beautiful part of the world.
