Interaction with Guests
I'm not around much as I work full time.
The neighbourhood is the best in town. It's Old Torquay, close to the beach, parks, shops, cafes and attractions. Everything is within walking distance.
There is a bus stop nearby and bicycles available for guest use.
Other Things to Note
I have two dogs, Barbara and Zephyr. Guests can have as much or as little interaction with them as they like. Just shut the gate, always.
There is also a hot tub outside - although in summer it's a cold tub - and a spa bath inside. There are also surfboards for your use. Please note that if you ding the board the repair cost is $200. I'm also happy to drive to and from Marshall train station for $20 each way if I'm available. Enjoy.
Respect the space and you can't go wrong.
Use the outdoor shower if you're covered in sand.
If you use the bike, make sure you use the lock.
Shut all gates - in the front and back - ALWAYS.
Recycle whenever possible.
Thank you Eve for a home-away-from-home experience. Your place was perfect for my weekend in Tourquay because it's so central – an easy walk to the beach and shops. Plus, I thought it was well priced. I felt very comfortable and appreciated your generosity and flexibility with check in and check out times. A special highlight was meeting those beautiful dogs. Thank you.
Eve was a great hostess. On a last minute booking for only a night, she even picked me up from the train station and dropped me off in town for a surf lesson! The house is centrally located and walkable to town, the beach, main surf shops on the highway, etc. Eve treats you like a friend that is visiting which is very nice after lots of travel.
I had a fantastic time staying with Eve and Ben the room and rest of the house was very clean and tidy and they were very helpful with all my questions. I will definitely recommend staying there to anybody and i look forward to staying there again in the future
Eve was so friendly and welcoming. She made us feel right at home and was happy for us to use anything we wanted and treat her home like our own. It's in a great location - everything in Torquay is walking distance. There are two beautiful dogs. Eve was kind enough to loan us her surfboard too.
Eve was very accommodating. We were out til late at a concert, and had arrangements with her to be able to get in OK without disturbing the house. She even offered to drive us to the venue and pick us up after, as she was already taking someone there. The Bed was comfortable and we had a lovely little spot on the front deck to eat our breakfast. Eve offered us plenty of time to pack up and leave our gear while we went shopping. Location was in good walking distance to shops and beach. Surf and Clothing Factory Outlets were close by and we enjoyed shopping for some bargains.
Eve was a fabulous host. She picked me up at the train station, and was so very gracious about borrowing a surf board and shorty. Even though i was too sore to use it but for about an hour over the weekend I stayed. Location was perfect, nice and residential but really close walk to coffee and shopping and the most amazing walk along the Esplanade all the way to JanJuc! I would and WILL most definitely come back for a visit, it was so awesome!
Eve and Ben are great hosts, I loved their lovely furnished and quiet house, so close to the beaches, the town centre and surf city. My room was very comfortable and cosy. I felt home so far away from home. I truly can recommend this place for other guests. And I will come back when I travel again in Australia. Othmar from Switzerland
