About the property

Are you wanting the seaside holiday, without the traffic, noise and close proximity of your new neighbours to just relax and unwind?

Our three bedroom house offers all the essentials you require to enjoy a quiet time away with friends or family, within close proximity to all that Anglesea has to offer.

Set in a small Cul-de-sac, a short seven iron away from the renowned Kangaroo lined Anglesea Golf Course, our house is nestled right in Coogoorah parkland, where you can wake up to the wildlife literally on your back door step. The large outdoor deck provides a great viewing platform to take in the serenity or to share with others as you bide your time away.

The house itself comprises of three bedrooms, a fully functional kitchen, open plan family and dining area, bathroom and separate laundry.

The main bedroom has a queen size bed, built in robes and TV, for those who are wanting that little bit of privacy. The second bedroom comprises a double bed and built in robes.

The third bedroom offers built in triple bunks and a single bed, for those who don't mind to share or for the young ones to enjoy the time with others.

The kitchen comes complete will all essential utensils, electric stove and microwave with ample storage space for groceries.

What better way to relax and unwind with a large family area, where the reverse cycle air-conditioning will keep you comfortable all year round, or the wood fire heater to keep away those winter chills.

The bathroom has a bath with a shower above, with an additional shower also in the laundry.

Outdoors, a double electric BBQ lets you enjoy the longer summer days with a fire pit provided when it gets cooler. The adjoining carport caters for two vehicle and an enclosed area is provided for those four legged members of the family to be housed (not visible from living areas).

Shops, beach, river, and playgrounds are a short drive away or can be accessed via the path through the nature reserves, which serves both locals and tourists alike.

With one of the best beaches along the Surf Coast, a championship Golf Course 100m away and a tranquil setting to relax and enjoy, our house offers an idealic opportunity for those wanting a good family holiday or just time away from life in the fast lane.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a relaxing weekend away. Quiet, private but close to town. Kids and dog loved the bush reserve, seeing kangaroos and parrots at breakfast and the firepit. House was clean and had all the basics covered and then some! Appreciated that the fire was set when we arrived. Greg was a great host. Would definitely recommend though as stated the property isn't fully fenced so dogs and very young kids need outside supervision.

Owner's Response: Mel, Thank you for your kind review and thoughtful comments. A lovely time of the year to enjoy the serenity, and yes, the pleasure of sharing the company of Kangaroos is only enjoyed as a result of keeping the yard relatively accessible to them. Regards, Greg

It's well named, kangaroos and beautiful parrots joined us for breakfast and the parrots ate out of my sons hand! It's beautiful how the reserve blends with the property so there aren't any barriers. We walked the beaches during the day and had some fabulous views along the coastline, then cooked some awesome meals in the kitchen and sat in front of a fire at night, inside and out! It was very special and we'd definitely do it again.

We had a really great time at the property, the bush setting is peaceful and relaxing - just what we were after and a nice walk through bush track to town. Comfortable and homey. Thank you, very pleased.

Met our needs perfectly

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for somewhere basic and pleasant for a weekend away and Bush by the Sea more than satisfied our requirements. Both we and our elderly dogs had a lovely weekend. We were only disappointed that the dog enclosure was not accessible from the house.

I am sorry that the dog enclosure photos attached to our advertisement, did not provide you with the knowledge that it was not visible from the living areas. I will include those details in a revised property description. Regards, Greg

Lovely walk to the river and shops. Lovely clean house with everything that we needed. The kids loved the outside area and seeing kangaroos in the morning.

100% happy and would defiantly recommend this place.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at bush by the sea, we have three young kids and they loved it. The house is clean, comfortable and well presented. The backyard looks out into the bush and we saw kangaroos. The bush path right next to the property that goes to town is a lovely walk. The owner was readily contactable and very helpful.
