Our beach home was completely renovated just before we bought it in 2012.
Because this isn't the house we live in year round, it is open to non-simultaneous swaps (unlike our family home in Camberwell, also listed on love home swap). We are open to offers from the USA (california, hawaii, utah, new york), or French Polynesia or France.
It has a great open plan downstairs living area with a great kitchen looking into the living room. Large flat screen TV, brand new bathroom with heating racks for wetsuits and a small outdoor wooden deck with BBQ, Gas heater lamp and outdoor setting. The upstairs features a loft with Queen size bed, plus an extra bedroom with bunk beds. There is a balcony upstairs overlooking the common garden in the front area. The house also features 2 fold out sofa's just in case. We have 2 young children so the house is child friendly also.
This beach house is in a block of 9, and together there is a pool and spa area with BBQ's that can be accessed by the other residents.
We are located right next to the Surf outlets Billabong, Roxy, Quiksilver, Rip Curl. And only 900 metre walk straight down to the main front beach. Bells Beach is a few km's up the road, and main street is just over 1km away with great cafe's, funky restaurants and a few small boutiques. Torquay is certainly evolving and changing with many new additions to the town over the past few years. It's our favourite beach in Victoria and the only place we spend our weekends. It is also the first town on the Great Ocean Road which stretches out several hundred kilometres winding across the coastline. Melbourne is 1 hour and 20 minutes away by car and the closest large town is Geelong located 25 minutes away.
As this is our holiday house we can do a non simultaneous swap. We are specifically looking for swaps at set times in early March 2016 for (north shore) Oahu, Hawaii and somewhere near Kona, Big Island or (north shore) Oahu late September/early October 2016. We would consider other offers too but are going to hawaii at those times so would like to find something for there.
