About the property

The Surfers Palace is a beautifully refurbished 2 bedroom beach cottage set in a delightfully private oasis. The cottage sleeps 4 very comfortably and can sleep 5. The property ideally suits romantic weekends or a family beach holiday. Completely self contained. Set at the rear of the main home. 1 minute stroll to Whites Beach and "centrally located" in beautiful Torquay.

With polished concrete floors throughout the downstairs offers a light and airy kitchen & dining; separate lounge includes 2 single beds and double French doors opening onto the wide and covered north westerly facing veranda. Perfect for alfresco dining.

Upstairs the large open plan bedroom is the perfect parents retreat and contains a Queen Bed, big comfy sofa, TV and fire place for cosy winter nights. You will feel like you are sleeping in the tree tops as the bedroom spills out onto a wide deck overlooking the peaceful gardens.

The property is set in a relaxed and established light filled garden with lots of lovely lawn. Very conducive to long games of Bocce.

The house sleeps 4 people comfortably and can fit 5.

For your comfort linen is provided however you do need to bring your own beach towels.

The property is fully fenced and therefore suitable for young children.


The "Surfers Palace" is 5 minute walk to some great Bars, Restaurants and Cafes and approximately 10 minutes walk from the centre of Torquay.

We suggest you leave your car behind and stroll along the beach to everything Torquay has to offer; including the iconic surf stores Rip Curl & Quiksilver, the many great cafes and restaurants on the Esplanade, Torquay.

Surfing and Mt Bike Adventure Packages

The owners of the property have over 18 year experience running the successful Eco-Adventure company Southern Exposure. Southern Exposure runs surfing, Mt biking and kayaking programs for approx. 10,000 students per year. They also run the Run Forrest Trail Run in the Otway Ranges.

The owners can link you up with their property in Forrest (the heart of the Otway Mt Biking Trails) and put together a truly adventurous Great Ocean Road and Otway experience.

Pets are not allowed.

Cute Coastal Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed here for a night and were pleasantly surprised at the house's cleanliness and cute decor; the garden was pretty and the location was super convenient. Bindy, the owner, made us feel welcome without being intrusive. We'll come back!

I didn't want to leave!

Such a beautiful property and Bindy is so lovely! The home is just gorgeous and as soon as I stepped through the front gate I instantly felt relaxed and at ease! Set in a lovely green garden with beautiful lawns, the surfer's palace lives up to it's name.. And you can even catch a glimpse of the ocean from the upstairs balcony! I couldn't recommend this property highly enough.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fabulous relaxing stay at Southern Exposure Surfers Palace. With just a short stroll to the beach, a relaxing garden with outdoor living area and exceptionally clean and bright property we couldn't help but have a great time. Many thanks to the owners for creating such a lovely atmosphere.

Beautiful & relaxing stay...

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Surfers Palace. The property owners made our stay easy and comfortable, and the property is absolutely stunning. Very close to the beach - perfect in summer but would be extra cosy in winter as the upstairs bedroom (which occupies the entire top floor) has a wood-fired stove. Highly recommend!
