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 for 2.

Directions:

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 carport on the left.

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.

Sunny winter break

  • 4 of 5

great location, excellent for our little dog and the dog door made her so independent. unfortunate that the dishwasher wasn't working, it would be helpful to have a dish drainer if the dishwasher wont be fixed. the couches were so comfortable and the sunny aspect combined with the excellent weather that Aireys turned on made for a great mid winter break.

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Our stay here was a quick winter weekend away. Quiet location just a short walk to the shops. There was everything we needed. Spa bath was very relaxing. Perfect for summer, but may I recommend another heater for winter.

Beautiful weekend at River Bed

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a very enjoyable weekend at River Bed Cottage. The accommodation was clean, well-appointed, perfectly positioned and with a wonderful view out the living and bed room over the river. During our stay we were treated to a golden sunset out the window after a lovely afternoon stroll up the river. For dinner, we walked the couple-of-hundred metres to the small group of shops and had beautiful pizza. Communication with owners was also top notch. Will definitely return.

Idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

This place has it all. It's a comfortable and well maintained cottage, in the perfect setting. Our labrador had the time of his life, as did his relaxed owners. Great coffee a short stroll away. We'll be back

Owner's Response: Thanks Marian. Recently I upgraded the cottage so there are a few extra furnishings, new carpet and appliances for my guests to enjoy. I too love strolling along the river to the 'cafe/shops around the corner, especially the organic cafe Onda.

Doggy Fun

  • 4 of 5

A River Bed Cottage is in a great location, quiet away from the road across from lovely river. Our dogs were happy playing in the courtyard or having a swim. Hubby was happy fishing and my morning latte was only a 5min walk so I was happy too.
