About Gavan Harkin
We are a retired couple who enjoy relaxing at our beach home as much as possible. It has been established particularly for use as a family holiday home and for that reason we specifically preclude us by "Schoolies" and groups of young people unaccompanied by mature adults. We live in Melbourne - approx 130 kms. from the house - and attend to the cleaning and maintenance of the house personally and for that reason we have a minimum 2 night stay policy.
Gavan Harkin purchased this House in 2000
Why Gavan Harkin chose Torquay
We purchased this home so that we could enjoy it as a family gathering place for children and grandchildren who enjoy the beach and surfing. We had been caravanning at Torquay for some years prior to purchase and thoroughly enjoy the beachside atmosphere.

Super Torquay getaway
We would thoroughly recommend Gavan’s place in Torquay. It’s got lots of room for families with kids, great facilities and is just a short walk to town and the beach. We will definitely stay here again.
Large welcoming home in great position
We really enjoyed our stay, walking distance to beach, shops and everything you need, thanks Gavin!
House was spotlessly clean when you left. A good tenant.
Perfect property for adults and kids
This property is in great condition, clean and tidy. It is very well equipped with everything you need. Perfect for both kids and adults with lots of toys, swings, books, pool table, soccer table and great size grassed backyard. Our family who stayed ranged from 1-70 years and everyone was very happy and comfortable with this property. Easy access to the esplanade too. Gavan and Anne were very accommodating supplying cots and high chairs. Very easy to communicate with at all times. Would definitely stay here again if we were visiting torquay. Thanks for providing such great accommodation.
Thanks for your comments Breanna. The house was left in excellent condition and we feel sure you and your family enjoyed your stay for the Geelong Half Ironman. Welcome back anytime.

Staying at Hark Inn was a fantastic experience.
Staying at Hark Inn was a fantastic experience. A very comfortable stay. The property has a great sense of space. Very well appointed and comfortable beds. Proximity to the beach, cafes and shops made it easy for the morning coffee or night time stroll. Loved our time here.
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Hope to have you back again some time.

Fantastic location, Great for Family Holidays
We enjoyed a wonderful week here with our children and grandchildren. Great location, close to the beach, the children's park and the centre of town all a short stroll away. The property has everything you need for your holiday and the large enclosed back yard was a real bonus. Anne and Gavan are wonderful hosts. Highly recommended for a family holiday when you want to get everybody together.
We are pleased that you enjoyed your break. And extremely pleased with the condition in which you left the house. We aim to provide a pleasant, safe environment for families to relax together.
