Blue Ribbon location to the best beach...Torquay Front Beach. Our early 1900's stone bricked cottage is centrally located within minutes walk to the beaches, main shopping, hotel & restaurant precinct. You won't need to use the car at all!
Sunnyside Up was built in 1910 and used as a butchers shop with the building behind used as the slaughter house for many years. It changed hands in the 1950's when Pat Morgan took it over to sell his surfboards making his famous surfboards from the building out the back. Inside the cottage is one of the original Pat Morgans surfboards and a "surfboard wax" sign that was found in the roof of Sunnyside Up during renovations. We also have a photo of the old butchers shop inside. Today, Sunnyside Up is a beautiful cottage to stay in and the back building is used as a clinic for Bowen Therapy!
Our cottage has a modern open plan living design providing ample space for the family to gather. Bedroom on the ground floor has a plasma TV and king sized pillow topped mattress and a queen sized pillow topped mattress on the mezzanine level, also with it's own plasma TV. We have tried to keep the charm of the 1910's abode whilst bringing it also into the 21st Century. Overall, guests should enjoy a comfortable stay in one of the oldest buildings in Torquay.
Guests have their own sealed driveway that has a fence to block the car in and sensor light out the front. Sealed back area that contains a G-board, foam board, noodles and boogie boards for guest use and clothes line.
