About the property

Torodes is a beautifully renovated beach house located opposite the stunning white sand surfing beach of Catherine Hill Bay. The house has four bedrooms sleeping up to eight people, with wide shaded verandahs, large fenced gardens, and sweeping beach views from the upstairs room and balcony.

Torodes is literally moments from the sand and you can't stay any closer to the beach in all of Catho. It is just 90 minutes drive north from the Sydney CBD. The heritage-listed village of Catherine Hill Bay consists of less than 150 houses, and is one of the oldest communities in the Lake Macquarie area.

The local pub, The Wallarah Hotel, is a short walk away. In nearby Swansea you can find

Torodes is absolutely stunning! The pics don't do this place justice. Great for the kids...huge backyard and beach straight across the road. We'll definitely be back!

Fabulous house

We had a wonderful holiday at Torodes. The house is perfectly set up for a family holiday by the beach.

I wish I owned this home

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, and so well maintained, Torodes is a credit to the owner Paul, and the perfect up-market beach house that feels just right. It's light, bright and sunny, and has great charm with beautiful verandahs and an upstairs balcony that is the right size for 5 women on a weekend away. We were blessed with excellent weather as well and with the beach across the road, took full advantage of the proximity. Like an earlier reviewer, I don't want to tell anyone about the glorious CHB which seems untouched and doesn't have any of the commercial developments of other north coast beaches. Will continue to buy Lotto tickets in the hope that one day I may be a full time CHB resident. Highly recommended.

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

There are some houses that you actually don't want to tell people about because they're so good and might get too busy in the future! This is one of them and is absolutely perfect in every regard. Many years ago I asked a few people on the Central Coast what the best beach was and they all said Catherine Hill Bay. So then I set out to find the best house and Torodes is 100% that. Nothing about your stay there is disappointing and we go back every year. It only recently had a stunning renovation but has still kept it's original charm. Don't hesitate for one second to stay here.

Gorgeous House

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed at Torrodes in July. It was just wonderful. The house is directly across the road from the beach and it is very spacious and has a lovely warm atmosphere. The owners have provided everything you could possibly need, including a lovely, well equipped kitchen, a variety of heating (for the cooler weather - including a slow combustion fire, electric heaters and electric blankets), comfortable beds, books, magazines, dvds, a huge outdoor area and lovely comfy furniture for long, lazy evenings. We had a fabulous stay and look forward to returning to Torrodes!
