IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BOOKING , PLEASE TELL ME A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF /and friends coming IN BOOKING or in the REQUEST , and i do also request that you tell me if PETS are coming ?? and if you agree to rules ? and if happy to clean property on departure ?? This info will be needed so I know a little about yourselves before arrival into my property and before i confirm, and that you are happy with all the info i provide below . ( I do supply a lot of info , but better to explain more than less and be as honest as i can ) The bond amount allocated by homeaway on property will only be collected AFTER checkout if a need .

THE SPACE

The property itself is NOT modern , it is not 3- 5 star , but more a very traditional old style relaxing holiday house with a retro feel ... Basic no frills, a little antique and a step back in time BUT with all modern furniture .If you PREFER new modern 3- 5 star , there are many new gorgeous stunning modern new built places or hotels in torquay you can also choose , so I'd rather you be happy and look around rather than rate me low stars because you didn't read my very honest description of knowing its an old traditional place or look through pictures. Sorry no wifi modem
It is very clean and tidy INSIDE as I am quite fussy on this so , I even use old fashioned Mr.Sheen on furniture .
Please consider that old buildings , walls , windows , cupboards etc,, V's clean is very different. The pictures of inside are exactly how it will look as you walk in .

I supply a few little things on welcome , such as tea ,coffee sugar, spreads , butter long life milk, cereal, juice , water, sweet treats, emergency tin food , tissues and toilet paper , along with shampoo , tooth brush, shower caps , paste and shavers if you by chance forget yours , and washing powder, tea towels ,bath mat ,beach towels, towels, Linen , doonas, blankets etc..
It has 2 bedrooms both with cupboards , sleeps 4 comfortable , One room with a double bed comfy mattress and other room 2 single beds ( one has a thicker mattress) , plus has Trundle bed for 5th person that can be pulled out if need arises ,but maybe a bit squashy for 5th adult !!
For bubs i have a HIGH CHAIR booster seat , can be attached to chair or sit on floor , and PORTA COT for bub if need with linen( these under double bed) , So perfect for family stays .

. .... TV with lots of DVD 's to choose , 2nd room has a TV which plays CD's only as NO antenna PLUS old time VIDEO player with LOADS of videos ( great for kids quiet time , after long day at beach and play )
There is a CD/radio player , board games , cards ,colouring books for kids, puzzle books for both adult and kids as well as books to read and 2 x boogie boards (please replace boogie boards if lost or broken ) and lots of out door beach and ball games

It has a comfy lounge with open big kitchen BUT is a little old fashioned re cupboards BUT the stove and fridge is modern and clean and the kitchen has all things like home plus microwave and washing machine . Bathroom is not large , has Shower and an old fashioned large Laundry tub , rather than a small vanity, which we decided is a great size for washing out swimmers and wet suits so hence have left as laundry tub style rather than a modern small vanity basin !!, and there is a small separate toilet .

It is a pleasant ,warm and cute living space for a nice little holiday or fun weekend getaway only 400 mtrs to the main beach and close to surf beach and shops and local Torquay pub , great for couples, friends or a family at a reasonable price . ,, very safe and children friendly , closed in back yard and pets allowed ( pictures are showing yard so you can assess re pets , please DONT FORGET to inform me re pets ?? )

Furniture is in GREAT condition and ALL quite modern .
Doona's , pillows and extra blankets are supplied, tea towels and a bath mat , towels and linen , BUT feel FREE to bring your own Linen and towels , some do like to bring own .

Re PETS , I am happy to have inside , but just PLEASE NOT UP on furniture , or sleeping on furniture or beds ,, SORRY in advance but i have to be considerate to others who stay who don't agree or have pets ...and the property must PLEASE be extra cleaned and all pet hair removed from floors, furniture, rugs , cushions etc..... to please not be left with pet hair on, as it does blow around when they shake !!!

( please bring your own Linen if pet sneaks up on bed ??)
I do have a vacuum , i find works better on the rug if you take head off and use the PET HAIR HEAD to get hair off rug .... Some guests don't have pets and and i like to allow all types of family's to stay .

CLEANING option , I DONT add on a clean fee and expect this done yourself on departure ,,if not then i will charge up to an $80 clean fee from bond .

I DO NOT charge a cleaning fee automatically, so you have option to save on this added cost , so all i request is that you leave as CLEAN as it was when you arrived ., which most do... as its a simple 15/ 20 min to vacume , clean up kitchen , bbq if used , dishes washed and popped away , wipe down benches , couch , clean shower and toilet if messy , and put things used back in place .

IF YOU DECIDE TO BOOK
I do hope you enjoy as much as i do spending time there, i have given as much detail as i can and as honest as i can about my cute little OLD holiday house .
Arrival time 2pm, if need earlier, please just ask me and if i can i will . Check out time about 11 am so i can come check property re bond etc,. , if i can offer late check out then i will . Xmas and January times are busy and i might not be able to offer early in / late out , sorry

THE NEIGHBORHOOD, overview

Torquay is just a gorgeous place for a relaxing weekend or short Holiday , its extremely peaceful and a really nice vibe , lots of shops and cafes to stroll to in all directions .. the main Torquay beach is at the end of street and the surf beach is a walk opposite .Everything is in walking distance which makes the location so good and a lovely quiet peaceful street , plus not far from the famous Bells Beach or take a nice drive along the Great Ocean Rd to Lorne and Further, Golf courses, Horse Ridding , pet friendly beach.

A LITTLE ABOUT US
We are from inner city Melbourne . We bought this property years ago as a getaway from inner city , we couldn't afford much or a beautiful modern place and we thought this was so cute and unusual , great location and just perfect for us to relax and not worry that is was not perfect by looks and bonus was it would be great for pets to stay .
We love the beach , my son loves to surf , our dog even loves to swim !! and its just so calm

Due to the travel from Melbourne we don't offer single night bookings as the cost of this ends up being not worth it with air con and heating costs , washing linen and sheets so that's why we have min 2 nights ( if I lived closer I would allow )

Hope you enjoy as we do with a little skip and step back in time.
Cheers, Angel

Great location and an enjoyable stay
Easy access to the beach at the end of the street, the location is a winner. Lots of resources available for families staying; games, dvds and puzzles. This is an older property, but one that has been well loved and cared for.

5/5 Excellent

A little gem with a lot of heart
We had the best long weekend at Angel's charming little unit. Although described as OLD we loved the retro/vintage fitout and we were so comfy and cosy with all the pillows and blankets in every room. Angel has made sure everyone in the family is catered for, kids and fur kids alike and we all left with the promise we would be back. Thanks for the fabulous stay Angel we are so glad we found your little gem!
