Built in 1912, 'The Kipsey' is one of Torquay's original and most charming 'beach houses'. Perfectly located amongst all Torquay has to offer, including both surf and front beaches, restaurants, cafes and shops, you will be able to walk everywhere within minutes.

Outside, the large, north facing backyard with BBQ offers the perfect setting to relax and entertain. Alternatively, relax on the front verandah while you listen to the breaking waves. The property offers plenty of secure off street parking. Pets allowed outside only.

We are positive you will enjoy your stay at 'The Kipsey'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Location, Larger than expected. We stayed for 4 nights. 5 adults and a child. We were actually surprized the property was much larger than we expected. Three bedrooms all with double beds, one with a single bunk above the double. All freshly decorated, the photos we saw on line actually didn't seem to do it justice, as it was much larger and more modern than we expected. Would happily recommend to anyone. Owners quick to respond and very helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect location Great place to stay. Short walk to beaches, and everything else (including fish & chip shop!). House is clean, bright and very comfortable. Property manager was great to deal with, looked after us well, and answered our queries promptly. We went to the Thursday night market ($5 entry fee. The market is held every Thursday in January, at Spring Reserve, which is five minutes’ walk from the house). Live music and dancing for all the family, arts and crafts, designer clothing, beer garden, and food from around the world. And if you’re a walker, the starting point for the clifftop/shady tee tree walk to Bell’s Beach is 5-10 minutes’ walk from the house: behind the surf club, take the boardwalk and follow the signs to Jan Juc (coffee/lunch break!) then on to check out the waves at Winkipop and Bell’s. It took us 3 hours, at a leisurely pace. Watch the cyclists and joggers, though! They don’t always alert you to their arrival.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great location and well maintained property Our family had a wonderful week away staying in this well maintained cottage. The term cottage is a bit deceiving as the cottage is very roomy with large bathroom and bedrooms, as well as two living areas and a big back yard. Walking distance to everything it is in a great location close to both beaches, shops and local hotel. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!
