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.

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 travelled and lived extensively overseas and throughout Australia. We enjoy sharing experiences with fellow travellers and are happy to give advice if needed.
Torquay is the heart of the Surf Coast and is the official start of the iconic Great Ocean Road. We have the best beaches in the known universe! Our house is in the middle of town, but tucked away in a quiet street. We love the fact that we don't have to get in a car to go to the beach, the supermarket or any of the many restaurants and cafes. It's all just there!
It's just a 50 metre walk to the bus stop, which can take you into Geelong for trains to Melbourne. Alternatively, you can take a bus to Lorne and Apollo Bay along the Great Ocean Road.

We had the entire 2nd level with total privacy and the house was very clean and neat.. Location is just a short walk to the beach, supermarket and eateries. It's a great place to stay in and fabulous host to ask for assistance. Would strongly recommend if u are looking for a place to relax and rest.. Definitely be staying there if we visit Torquay again.. Thanks Mich and Louise

Very welcoming guests, The place is lovely and private and the kitchen (including fridge) makes it so convenient. Great location.
A+++ Thanks you
This is just the best place, as a short stay away from home, we ever had. Everything was just amazing from our welcoming hosts, to the spacious living area, to the comfortable balcony,to the nice bathroom etc. our one regret was that we only had one night. Next time we come we would definitely like to stay longer.
