Family friendly stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the property. It was clean and tidy. There are heaters in all the bedrooms which was great. There is a big gated backyard for the kids to run about in and a basket of toys to keep them occupied in the kids room.

Excellent location, walking distance to everywhere.

A great property which we will defiantly be back at.

KIPSEY - Torquay

Very enjoyable stay and great homely place for relaxing and unwinding. 100 mtrs from Restaurants,Entertainment and a very short walk to magnificent beaches and scenery. One minor contact/issue required during the stay and the owner rectified it within 15 mins. Great place and great support service if ever needed. A1.

Great family home

  • 4 of 5

With two living areas, a large back garden, a sheltered outdoor entertainment area and wonderful period features, this generous home is within easy walking distance to both beaches, the main shopping precinct, and beachside cafes. It was a fun place to stay in and accommodated the seven of us beautifully.

Great location. Walking distance to the Torquay hotel, shops and beach. Cute cottage and great backyard. Bathroom could use an update. But otherwise in perfect working order.
