Other Things to Note
Please contact me BEFORE you book for winter to take advantage of the winter special. If you wish to enquire about the house, take the time to fill in your profile to tell others a little about yourself and those staying with you, plus make sure you have done your identity validation. After all, would you expect to let your home to a complete stranger you know nothing about with no ID? It helps me to know if we are a good fit if you are able to tell me a little more than the absolute basics. If you have references from other Airbnb hosts all the better but this is not a prerequisite to stay.
There is a manual in the house with lots of other useful information. Please take care of the house. Take away your excess rubbish and leave the house as if you were the next person to stay!
No parties please and no schoolies. When using the spa be mindful of not disturbing our neighbours. Please turn the heating off after you use the spa, and top up with water.
Andrea's house is great for a family trip away. Great location, walking distance to the beach. Everything we needed to cook family meals.
Very good, we had a problem getting the hot water to turn on and a plumber was sent to us within the hour to get it working. Lovely house in a great spot.
Andrea's beach house was definitely spacious and suitable for groups. It has all the basics with distant sea views which you can enjoy on the balcony. The house itself is located in a quiet area, within a short drive from the beach and main area of Torquay. Andrea herself was very accommodating, organising a later check-in/out time for me and also helping me with problems with the spa. She was always in contact and quick to respond to my queries. Thanks Andrea!
Thanks Andrea for sharing this beautiful house. Myself and 7 friends had a weekend away and couldnt believe how great the house was. Its a spacious and inviting house with lots of little extras. We loved the board games and selection of books. The ocean views front the upstairs living room are just beautiful. Really clean and comfortable. I'd highly recommend this house and host to others.
It's the best in my Airbnb experiences. The pictures on website can't describe how beautiful this house is. The layout of the house is perfectly meet the requirement of our group of 12, the beds, super!
Andrea always answer my question promptly and warned me the little problem of SPA before we arrive, but we were too busy to appreciate the beauty of the Great Ocean Road, not use it at last.
The fully equipped kitchen,the amazing outdoor BBQ, it only took 1hour to BBQ for 12 people.
There is a convenient shop 3 minutes walk away,but if you shopping for BBQ, 2.5km away, woolwhorths have all you want!
The view in the living room is amazing, the board game keeps kids from iPad!
I will recommend my friends to come here when I go back to China!
