Family friendly in a quiet and peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 enjoyed a 16 night stay at this lovely holiday home. The location is beautiful- very quiet and peaceful. 10 minute walk to the river and shops, 30 minutes to the beach.

The house is neat and cosy, I was impressed to find the kitchen well equipped with all of the cooking utensils and appliances that we could possibly need.

Plenty of toys to keep the kids amused, along with a good selection of DVD’s, books and magazines for the adults.

The garden is very pretty with a large deck for outdoor entertaining and plenty of space for backyard cricket. Half of the rear yard is fenced with only wire fencing so this is something to keep in mind if you have a dog who can jump or who is likely to bark upon seeing the neighbours in their yard.

Our only complaint would be the lack of cooling. There were four portable fans but no air conditioning and we found that the house was very quick to heat up and slow to cool down (which made for some very hot and sleepless nights)

Other than that though we had a wonderful time, the owners were very friendly and helpful and we would definitely return.

Room enough for all

  • 4 of 5

There were 9 Adults and 2 medium-large dogs and it fitted us comfortably.

Location is good and the house is complete to cater for a large family.

Couple of negative for us was the backyard fence wasn't very secure so we weren't confident of leaving the dogs even for a couple of hours. The oven unfortunately was broken at the time of our visit which threw our meal plans into chaos. And a few of the pillows were stained and needs replacing. Overall though, it was still a good house us it allowed our family to be together for a couple of nights.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments Ana, we're always looking at ways we can improve the house for guest stays so appreciate the feedback. As a result of your feedback at the time we've replaced several sections of the backyard fence, obviously had the oven fixed and have also replaced the older pillows and ensured pillow protectors on all pillows. We hope you stay with us again and get a chance to see the improvements.

Great Anglesea base

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay in Anglesea. The house is really well equipped for families with young kids. The garden is lovely, very peaceful and a great place to gather, we didn’t even miss a sea view in the end! Garden is secure for dogs as long as they aren’t jumpers as the gate is a bit more than waist high. Awesome dog beach at Melba Parade!!

Two rooms in the house are big enough to comfortably accomodate travel cots, it was a tight squeeze to get a cot into the cabin (the ensuite 4th bedroom which is a garage conversion not attached to the main house). The bunk room is great for older kids.

Really loved our getaway and hope to return

All Year Round - Really

  • 5 of 5

A delightful stay in winter. The house is welcoming and very comfortable. The extra bungalow/room is a bonus. Our only disappointment was that we did not stay longer.

great place to stay with excellent hilltop vista

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous Easter holiday break was had by our family of 5. the surf at Anglesea was pumping! Our 3 teenagers enjoyed their space in the house. The bungalow was a hit with our VCE student to study in peace in between beach or bush outings. The gas fire in the lounge was cozy on the cold night. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, and the dog was happy on the back veranda. We even used the outdoor oven, lighting a fire & roasting potatoes & cooking damper on a cold afternoon.

The walk to the wetlands and paths through the bush were amazing - talk about aromatherapy - the scent of the bush after the rain was heavenly. A restorative holiday for all.
