“Great place to Stay”

My husband and I stayed at 1 Beach Cottages for 9 nights recently. We were in Australia visiting our daughter who's currently living in Torquay. We chose this accommodation because we wanted to be near to our daughter and also so that we could spend some relaxed quality time with her at somewhere that was a home from home.

There are 3 bedrooms at the property, 2 double rooms and 1 twin. One double room has an ensuite shower room and also a fridge should you need it. This room is on the ground floor along with the twin room and a separate bathroom which has a separate shower. There is also a washing machine in this bathroom, with a wash basket, clothes horse, iron and ironing board all provided. There was even a small pot with washing powder in it for us and a washing line outside in the garden area. The other double bedroom is upstairs along with the kitchen/lounge/diner area. The kitchen area has a sink, fridge/freezer, microwave and cooker. Lots of cupboard space which was well equipped. We had all the necessary equipment needed. Cups, plates,bowls, glasses, cutlery, chopping board, trays, storage pots, cooking utensils, foil, cling film, kitchen roll, washing up liquid, tea towels, dish cloth. We literally didn't have to think of anything. It enabled us to see what we had for the first couple of days and decide what needed topping up during our supermarket shop. The bathrooms had towels, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and soap. All of which were an unexpected surprise. We had already been told in booking that we needed to supply our own beach towels.

The weather was a little unpredictable during our stay and the heater supplied in our room came in very handy on a few evenings. We chose to stay in the bedroom downstairs simply because there was no toilet upstairs. The lounge area has two sofas facing each other with a coffee table in the middle. We enjoyed several evenings with our daughter and friends playing card games here having had dinner at the dining table. It was so nice to not have to go out to dinner in a restaurant every evening because we had the facilities to relax where we were staying. It was a real home from home and of course this saved us money. There was a bbq supplied outside along with a garden table so we could eat al fresco if we wanted.

The whole place was really clean and fresh, the bed was comfy and the position of the accommodation was perfect. If you turn right out of the drive and cross the road, you're on the beach. You can walk into town in 15 mins.

Torquay is a lovely town, everyone is really friendly. There's a craft market at the weekend. Lots of small shops and restaurants. Surf hire, bike hire, canoe hire. An area of outlet shops selling 'surf/beach' gear. Reef, quicksilver etc. Lots of Fitness and yoga classes.

Sandra, our host was lovely. We communicated by email and she sent me a PayPal invoice which I paid in full in advance. We flew into Melbourne fairly late so she arranged to leave a key to the property for us so we weren't concerned about arriving too late and although she lives next door to the property, gave us our privacy and space. She was very easy going, even popping round on our check out day to say as no one else was checking in that day we didn't need to rush to check out by 10am.

All in all a fab stay!

“Loved this house by the beach - perfect of our family of 6 (2 adults and 4 children)”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Our family loved our stay in this beach house. The backyard provided a great, enclosed place for our kids to play. The beach was only a short stroll away. The kitchen was well stocked so we could easily cook our own food - which was a blessing as we were all over eating out.
The two living areas meant that my husband and I could have space away from the kids while they were playing.
All in all the house was comfortable and made you feel like you could relax and enjoy being on holiday. We will be back!
