About the property

Its right on the river and just a short stroll to the beach, shops and cafes. Self contained 'couple accommodation'. Your Aireys Inlet studio is much more than a motel suite at a much more competitive price. It is modern with private ensuite and an excellent outlook.

The accommodation includes:




*queen bed

*reverse cycle air conditioning/heating


*outdoor furniture


*all linen and towels provided


Enjoy the newly opened lighthouse, bush, beach and cliff top walks, paddle on the river, horse riding and mountain biking at your fingertips. Its a beautiful part of nature here and such a great part of the Great Ocean Rd. Nearby is the town of Lorne famous for its waterfalls and cafe strip.

Why this retreat was built and how to get there.

Owner/manager of A River Bed, Wendy, holidayed in the area as a child and,

loving the memories, moved here in 1997. While working in the Tourism/Accommodation industry for many years, saw a need

for modern self contained 'couple' accommodation. So created A River Bed, studio for 2.


Take the Princes Highway from Melbourne, through Geelong and follow the signs to the Great Ocean Road. Drive through Anglesea and continue on to Aireys Inlet. Aireys is a tranquil seaside resort on the beautiful southern coast of Victoria.

When you enter the town of Aireys Inlet, drive past the shops on the left and the hotel on the right. Down the hill and, at the bottom, turn right into Bambra Road then left into River Road, left again into River Reserve Road. Second on the left, you'll see your car space at the front of the studio.

Location and what's nearby

A River Bed is close to Lorne, Anglesea, Torquay and the Otways but right on the Great Ocean Road and Surfcoast. Its so handy for day trips and a perfect base for your holiday or simply a weekend or overnight getaway.

Could have been cleaner.

  • 3 of 5

Light fitting in kitchen covered in grease yet no cooking facilities. Paint patches are not a good look. Should repaint the lot. Given the price the facilities should be pristine. A part from this Great position and we enjoyed the stayed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. There is a 2 burner hotplate and bbq facilities along with microwave, toaster etc for cooking. I apologize for the cleanliness of the light fitting and will clean immediately. Re-paint is on my to do list however removing the scuff marks is better than leaving them on the walls. Thanks again.

Comfortable, clean, relaxing surroundings.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riverbed apartment. It is well located, bird life was lovely, the apartment was very well appointed - very clean and fresh. Things that are always appreciated like tea, coffee, milk, glad wrap, dish washing detergent, etc. little things do make a difference!
