The Lily Pad is a beautiful fully renovated vintage caravan surrounded by trees and with a large sunny timber deck and charming semi-detached bathroom pavilion, both overlooking a water-lily pond. Although very restful and private, the beaches, shops and restaurants are only a short drive or bike ride away.
The 1 acre property is nestled into remnant stands of tea tree and Manna Gums, at the headwaters of Deep Creek that flows through the rear of the property.

El espacio
Our guests say staying here is very restful and calming, almost like being right out in the bush, with the occasional excitement of seeing one of the many birds or the ducks that regularly visit the pond.
The sound of the frogs calling at night (we have about five different species here) is very restful.
They also say they love the bathroom, which is like stepping back in time with its rustic design touches and hammock overlooking the pond. Here there is a toilet, vanity and shower.
Guests are free to wander through the bush and veggie garden and are invited to join us for a one-on-one tour of the orchard and gardens if time permits.
A secret pathway winds from your north-facing deck, over a little bridge over the creek and onto a concrete bicycle/walking path that leads into town which is about 3km away, and to the beaches.
When you arrive you will park your car about 50m away in a safe area well off the road, and walk through the bush along a gravel path to reach the Lily Pad. Once inside the cases can be stowed away under the daybed.
The van is a lovely Viscount Regal from the mid 1970’s, the heyday of caravanning in Australia.
There is a double bed at the back with a privacy screen to seperate it from the living areas. Suitcases can be stowed under the bed and you can unpack into the hanging space drawers and baskets - there is plenty of storage!
The kitchen is provided with all the basics you would need for a simple meal - induction cooktop, saucepans cutlery etc. There’s a fridge and banquette table of course, a BBQ and a sink with hot and cold water on the deck. There is also an electric toaster/oven available on request.
At the front is a comfy daybed overlooking the bush through the classic Viscount panorama windows. It can be a bed at night of course but also converts to a generously proportioned desk, ideal for study and quiet concentration in a peaceful setting (if this is what you need, let us know and we’ll bring down a good ergonomic office chair). There is unlimited wifi but no television!
Dogs are welcome to stay, and there is a fenced area next to the van for them.
There is a fire pit available in Winter with firewood, and logs to sit on (not for use during fire restrictions period approximately November-April).
Water in the big bottle is triple-filtered rainwater, in the taps its regular town supply.

Acceso de los huéspedes
The Lilypad faces away from the main house, so your space is quite private. You have sole access to the whole bush area of the property, including the firepit area.
The car park and entry space is shared, so we may cross paths there and say 'hello', and no doubt Ollie (old border collie) or more likely Riley (little Papillon) will greet you. They are both very friendly.

NOTE RE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
We would like to reassure our guests that we are monitoring the changing Covid-19 situation, and have implemented a couple of changes to the way we operate such as

- disinfecting all surfaces after regular cleaning,
- wearing gloves while cleaning, and using alcohol hand rub before and after wearing gloves
- practicing physical distancing with guests,
- providing organic pump-action soaps and hand sanitiser for guests to use,
-clarified self check-in arrangements.

What you can do to help us:

- Follow hygiene recommendations such as regular hand washing, and social distancing.
- If you are in any of the risk categories and begin to feel unwell and develop a fever or shortness of breath, a cough or respiratory illness, you should seek immediate medical attention
- If you have travelled overseas or have had contact with somebody with coronavirus in the last 14 days, or have any coronavirus symptoms, please cancel your booking. As per government advice, you will need to isolate yourself at home for 14 days.

We understand that some of our guests will need to cancel their upcoming visit and they can do this and receive a full refund.

Apart from this, we think its a pretty low risk escape - theres no need to interact with anyone else here and you can cook at home or get meals delivered from the restaurants in town easy enough.. not need to go anywhere really!

As many face school closures and shift toward remote work, you may need a work- and family-friendly listing - we have fast wifi (usually), a comfortable workspace, and is suitable for children and your pet. We also offer a generous 40% discount for longer stays of a week or more.

Ubicación

Torquay, Victoria, Australia

We are located in the heart of the Surf Coast, a short drive to the iconic Bells Beach, and with the restaurants and cafe's of Torquay on the doorstep.
Favourite things to do..
...Walking the dogs along Fishermans Beach in the early morning with the sun rising out of the sea, followed by coffee at The Salty Dog cafe on the beach.
....Coffee at Moby Cafe on the Esplanade,
...Dawn swims at Addiscott Beach (Point Addis).

All the beaches along this section of coast are great, each with its own special character and are wonderful for a morning walk or swim, watching the sun rise out of the sea. Our favourite beaches are Whites/Fishermans (dog beach), Cosy Corner/Front Beach (dawn swims around the bouys), Addiscott Beach/Point Addis, and of course Torquay back beach (surf!).
In our immediate location you can slip out the back over the creek to the path and straight onto a boardwalk that skirts a small lake (Frog Hollow) right next door, where there are nice seats to site and enjoy the view with a cuppa or a glass of wine.

When I am travelling I love to 'dive deep' and try to get to know a place like the locals know it - being a landscape architect I like to understand what makes a place "tick" from an ecological perspective, and of course from a social one as well! Favourite movie would be Fargo (but don't hold that against me, I love anything by the Coen brothers!) or anything directed by Clint Eastwood or by Richard Linklater. We regularly have visitors staying with us at Brackendell Farm (ok, I admit its really just a very big garden!) in Torquay from all round the world with the Workaway and Woof programs, and we love the cultural exchange of hanging with people on holidays, even when we are working!! We also are setting up a BnB, so any tips are most welcome!
