About Kellie Jasper

I'm kept busy as a full-time working mother of three from Melbourne so when we get to holiday I want a place to relax, enjoy and to feel like I am on holidays and not just in another house.

Kellie Jasper purchased this house in 2012

Why Kellie Jasper chose Torquay

We renovated a house to create a holiday home that our family loves, both for when the children were younger and for now that they are teens/young adults. We want others to enjoy the property and create precious family memories.

What makes this house unique

"Torquay Family Getaway" is comfortable, colourful and with lots of reminders that you are on holidays at the beach. It is set up to suit families - from very young families by providing a high chair, stair gate and portacot to young families with toys, books and board games to growing families (like mine) who need sports equipment, space for their friends, some privacy and endless wifi.

Awesome family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We took two family’s away with us and can’t speak more highly of the place. It had everything we needed and more. Games, dvds, table tennis table, even a baby gate to secure the 10mth and 3 year old from the stairs. It’s less than a 5 minute walk to the off leash dog beach and housed all of our dogs comfortably in the big back yard. The large outdoor deck was amazing and we spent a lot of our time relaxing out there while the kids played. I highly recommend this accommodation if you’re looking for a great family getaway.

Fantastic house with all the comforts of home, close to the beach. Great place for beach scenic walks, close to shops and restaurants. Plenty to do and enjoy the Torquay surrounds. Would recommend highly as the beautiful house was clean, spacious, with backyard ideal for pets, and we wanted to live there forever.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a magnificent property. We had a weekend away to recharge our batteries. Well it definitely was that. Daily beach walks, reading a book on the huge sunny deck with a glass of bubbles and playing ball in the backyard with our doggie. I would highly recommend this property to anyone, a couple wanting a quiet break away or a family holiday. A well thought out property it was just like being at home but a different outlook. Amazing !!!! Thank you Kellie
