'Bush by the Sea' - quiet native setting

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


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 beside 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. Another smaller deck provides a great spot to capture the afternoon, winter sunshine.

The house itself comprises of three bedrooms, a fully functional kitchen, open plan family and dining area, bathroom and separate laundry (please note that a combined bathroom/laundry renovation is planned towards the middle of 2018).

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 than 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 (as previously mentioned, a combined bathroom/laundry renovation is planned towards the middle of 2018, which will increase the size of the bathroom, but will remove the bath and one of the showers).

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 smaller vehicles, 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.

Was a lovely house in a great position. Everything we needed in the house, cosy fire with lots of wood. Beautiful decking out back for breakfast and afternoon drinks. Nice walks, short drive to dog friendly beach with basically no one around. Golf course nice and close for yummy dinners.

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
