The beach is a short 500 metres and to get there you walk through a beautiful park, stop to have a hit of tennis or play on the kids playground.

Whites and Fishermans beach is a short walk where swimming, kayaking or relaxing on the beach is a favourite pastime. Fishermans Beach launches boats off the sand. Perhaps surfing or body boarding is your thing then Torquay Surf Beach is right on your door step - just a few minutes drive.

There are plenty of local cafes and restaurants to walk to or a short drive and you are in the heart of Torquay.

You may like to plan your holiday around a sporting event and watch it on the big screen in the theatre room.

Depending on the type of getaway you are after either relax and unwind or hit the beach or surf.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, clean, tidy & classy! Had eight of us stay & there was so much room, separate areas for everyone to relax & 5 minute walk to the beach & shops. Shopping centre 5 min drive away & only 20 mins to Geelong. Kitchen had everything I needed to cook up a storm. Am going to book again in July, same house, different group of people.

I booked this beautiful house for my best friend's hens weekend away down in Torquay. It was PERFECT for what we wanted - a relaxed and quiet weekend away with a small group of ladies. Cathy was wonderful in touching base with me the week before to ask if there was anything she could do to make our stay better. Communication was fantastic. When I checked in on the Friday night, she'd already given me very clear instructions of how to get the key, the house was clean and so beautiful! There was a thank you/welcome card, a cake, champagne and card for the bride-to-be... it was so personalised and wonderful. Cathy was on call for us throughout the weekend and came over to say hello and help us when we couldn't get the cinema screen working! (YES, there's a cinema room!!!).

The location is fantastic - a 5 minute walk to the beach and an even shorter drive to the shops/restaurants. Everyone commented on how lovely the house was - the unique furniture, how comfortable the beds were, the natural lighting, etc. You could tell it was a home that was well loved by the owners.

THANK YOU so much for having us, Cathy and Nic! We are already talking about when we can come back for another weekend away. Keep doing what you're doing - we loved it! xxxxx

A wonderful "getaway"

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the door we had a fabulous time in this beautiful "home away from home" Everything in the house was first class and the very welcoming champagne and lamingtons just added to that special feeling. Cathy was great to deal with and we certainly look forward to "getting away" to this gem in Torquay again.

Brilliant for Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend trip to My Torquay Family Getaway was perfect - house exceeded our expectations and communication with Cathy was great. She was always happy to help if needed and couldn't be happier with our choice of accommodation. Felt very welcomed to arrive to a bottle of wine and even a little something for our daughter who was having a birthday. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a centrally located, well appointed and immaculate house in Torquay. Thanks again Cathy and Nic
