About our home

Our home away from home is located on Victoria's Great Ocean Road at Anglesea. Built in the 1980's and owned by us for 11 years, the home has been completely renovated to provide relaxed and comfortable breaks for both us and our exchange guests.
The home consists of 3 queen bed rooms plus a comfortable day bed, 2 bathrooms incl. en-suite off main, large study with computer and printer. The kitchen has all modern appliances and bench tops. There are 2 separate toilets and a laundry.. Our living room is the centerpiece of our home with TV, books, videos, board games. There are 2 other TV's in the home. A fabulous picture window frames a leafy outlook across 3 fairways of the famous Anglesea Golf Course. About 300 iconic Australian Western Grey Kangaroos live on the Golf Course and they regularly graze within our outlook. In fact they're often in our backyard, which runs seamlessly onto the golf course.
There is a small garden area below our side balcony where pets can be contained. We are a pet friendly household and welcome guests with house trained dogs.
We are 1 km from the Anglesea Surf Beach and 1.5 km from Point Roadknight, which is a safe family oriented beach.
Anglesea is just 1.5 hours by freeway from Melbourne and is a perfect base for exploring the Great Ocean Rd and its wonderful attractions.
