We have created Fishos Beach Shack as our perfect holiday home, just 4 minutes walk to the beach. It's large enough for the whole family (including the dog). It sleeps 10 people.

There's a few things in the shack to make your holiday a little easier including linen and towels. The kitchen has all the basics for cooking up a seaside feast.

Separate bathroom and toilet and an extra shower in the Laundry. No bath yet. Laundry also has a washing machine and dryer.

Now having a little boy we have tried to make the place kid friendly. With a gate on the deck and toys - high chair, bibs, portacot and pram available on request. We bath our son in the tub base of the shower.

We like hanging out on the deck (usually with something purchased from one of the nearby wineries) watching the birds, so there are a few comfy lounges and a table and benches.

Bedroom 1: 6 Bunk Beds, fan and heater.

Bedroom 2: Queen Bed with built in robes, fan and heater.

Bedroom 3: Queen Bed with built in robes, fan and heater.

Guest Access

You will have access to the entire house, deck and garden. The garage is locked up but there's off street parking for one car in the driveway.

Interaction with Guests

We are available via email or phone.

The Neighbourhood

We love Torquay. Surf options from Barwon Heads and all the way down the Great Ocean Road (a few local companies offer lessons). Relaxing beach walks and longer walking trails. A run or bike ride along the coastal path. Great cafes on the Esplanade - lattes and sea views. There is some really great food around (fish and chips at Fishos is just excellent) and a couple of local breweries. Hop in the car for a drive down the Great Ocean Road or get on the taste trail and head to a few of the restaurants and wineries on the Bellarine Peninsula, Surf Coast or Moorabool Valley. There's a shady park and a big playground both a short walk from the shack, and barefoot bowls is just as close. It's a half hour drive to the Adventure Park in Geelong.

Butchers, grocers and supermarkets are all close by, as are the surf shopping outlets.

Getting Around

4 minutes walk to Fishos Beach

7 minutes walk to Moby and Pond Cafes on the Esplanade

There are a few taxis. Uber operates in this area.

There are McHarry's buses from Jan Juc to Torquay, Geelong and Marshal Station.

V-Line goes to Marshal (then bus to Torquay) or to Waurn Ponds ($25 Uber to Torquay).

Other Things to Note

The shack is a work in progress. It's a little retro, not too polished but we love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous little shack! This is not a 5-star glamour palace (we wouldn't rent one of those), but it's beautifully decorated in just the right measure and it's absolutely perfect for the adults, the kids and the dogs. There were 3 adults and 5 kids at peak times during our holiday and it worked brilliantly. Great location in Torquay too. NB - if you need to do the laundry, do it on cold water - or have your showers first. Otherwise, enough hot water for everyone - essential on cold winter days after a dip. Thanks Nat and Mark for the welcome bottle of champagne and for the prompt service when needed. We had a great break!
