Historic Boutique Cottage in the Heart of Torquay

Family-friendly cottage in Torquay
Sunnyside up is a delightful, historic boutique 2 bedroom cottage sleeping up to 4 guests. This is the perfect getaway for couples or small groups and families.
The beauty of Sunnyside is in summer the bricks and veranda keep Sunnyside Up nice and cool. In the winter the wood fire with plenty of wood keep Sunnyside Up toasty and warm. Just for extra comfort the split system and fans are there for use also.
On the ground floor bedroom is a king sized bed with electric blanket that has a homely feel with plenty of pillows to sit up in bed watching TV or reading a book.
The spiral staircase leads to the upstairs floor that holds a queen sized bed also with a mattress topper and LCD TV.
The open plan kitchen and living/dining room make it easy to live in whilst being functional with a intergrated fridge/freezer, induction cooktop, electric oven, sandwich toaster, microwave, 4 burner toaster, dishwasher, kettle and coffee pod machine.
Basic amenities like shampoo, conditioner, hairdryer, straightener, body wash, hand cream, body lotion, cooking spray, tea, coffee, coffee pods, sugar, salt/ pepper, spices, oils, washing powder, dishwashing liquid are all supplied.
The new super comfy couch sits across from the large plasma TV with foxtel in the lounge and wifi provided.
The laundry and bathroom is fitted out and looks impressive as it is functional. With washing machine, dryer, 2 beach chairs and buckets and spades in the laundry. The walk in shower, toilet, large mirror and plenty of bench space in the bathroom.
A G-board, foam board and body boards sit out the back for those wanting extra excitement in the ocean. Board games and kids toys sit in the cupboard for fun. For those wanting quiet entertainment there are books to sit and enjoy.
Out the front relax on the outdoor setting to look at the ocean and watch time pass by. If you are wanting more privacy there is a small courtyard out the back with another outdoor setting.
We are in the blue ribbon location of Torquay so you can 200m to the Front beach or 500m to the Surf Beach.
2 minute walk to the shopping precinct on Gilbert St, Bell St, Boston Rd and the Esplanade.
Bring your golf clubs as there are 2 great courses to choose from as well as great walking tracks out to Bells Beach and in the Iron Bark Basin. Fantastic mountain bike terrain and surf academy only a short walk away.
Please keep in mind that if you book for 2 guests only the downstairs bed will be made up. If you require 2 beds for 2 people then you will need to book for 3 guests.

5/5 Excellent

Cute Cottage, Great Location
We thoroughly enjoyed our mini break at Sunnyside up cottage. Easy walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants. The bed was very comfortable and the facilities great. We enjoyed the warmth and ambience of the fire though missed not having any kindling or fire tools. Also, we would rather have had the extra firewood delivered prior to our check in rather than after we had arrived. Overall, a great cottage in a great location. Would recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Gorgeous house
Loved this gorgeous little house. Super clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped. Great shower, comfy bed and very cosy with a wood fire and a sunny verandah to sit out on. Five minutes walk to shops and restaurants. Absolutely loved our stay in this quirky cottage and will definitely be back! Thanks Brendan!
