“Service takes the cake!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Upon arriving at Whitebeach house, we immediately appreciated the ideal location opposite the beach and a short walk to Torquay's beautiful restaurants. We were greeted with open arms by Steve and Claudia and shown around the renovated property. But the service didn't stop there, Steve and Claudia's extensive knowledge of the area and approachable nature led us to some amazing restaurant and winery recommendations. Highly recommended to anyone who is passing by.

Room Tip: We imagine this property would also be absolutely ideal for big groups and families.

Hi D and J. Thanks very much for your wonderful feedback. We're glad you enjoyed so much of what Whitesbeach and the surrounding area has to offer. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. We'll make sure the cellar is well stocked with some of the world's lesser known varieties. Cheers

We had an absolutly wonderful stay, memorable stay at Whites Beach accomodation. Couldnt have asked for more kind, caring and attentive hosts. Steph and Claudia made our stay extra special with there very kind natures and cheerful attitudes. All requests we had were met with no hassle in the world and were more than happy to meet these. Love the beach, but having the heated indoor pool there was fantastic! As was the guest lounge. Loved that we were also able to go for a long walk into town to enjoy the many restaurants. We only stayed the one night, next time we will definatly make the most of staying for longer! ( Kid free too next time ;) )

Room Tip: Room with a view across the beach was amazing!

Hi Steph,

It was lovely to meet you, J and D and we're really glad you enjoyed your stay, even though short. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. And if you do have to bring the little fella, we'll be sure to help organise a babysitter.

We had a memorable and delightful long weekend at Whitesbeach. The guest house is clean and spacious, with tennis court, ping pong, billiards, BBQ, and indoor pool/spa. On your doorstep is lovely Torquay- restaurants, beaches, playgrounds, shops, etc. ( nice long walk or very short drive to town). Stephen and Claudia are wonderful hosts and make sure their guests are looked after.nice little touches like music playing, pouring you a glass of wine in the hot tub, and fresh baked muffins on Sunday morning. It After a few days it felt like we were old friends, and my son was happily helping around the house. Wish he did that so willingly at home!

Hi J,

It was a pleasure having you and H stay with us. Byron Bay's loss was our gain. We look forward to having you bring the entire clan back here. There are enough Boogy Boards and chores for all.

Cheers

What a wonderful location with warm and very accommodating hosts. Whitesbeach Guesthouse has such a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Our hosts attended to our needs and requests offering cheerful conversation and assistance, yet allowed us our space. And as much as we loved the beach, the Guesthouse swimming pool was wonderful also. Whether its just the two of us, or I return on a 'Girls' Weekend', we'll be back! A special place to stay.

Hi M & C. Given your experience running a small accommodation, your positive feedback is very encouraging. Since you're stay the indoor pool area has been replanted, improving the ambience even further. We look forward to seeing you both again soon and also meeting M's group of friends. Cheers!

Although we only stayed overnight, we found the atmosphere very calming, relaxing and were welcomed by a friendly smile and attentive hosts. The guesthouse was clean, roomy, homely and has a great billiard table. Lots of great amenities and we will definitely go back and stay again hopefully bit longer to enjoy the place.

I only stayed for 1 night but the owners were so friendly and helpful and really make you feel right at home, the place is also large enough that you don't even know that they have other guests. Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing get away
