The space

#Please note... The calendar and pricing only reflects one room, B1. As such the other rooms, B2 and B3 may be available.#
Anglesea is situated at the true beginning of the Great Ocean Road. Just take one room or possibly the entire main floor of our house (available throughout most of the year). My son and I generally occupy a room downstairs so mostly the upstairs is the domain of guests.
We have 3 bedrooms for use at all times. Our rooms are clean, fresh and well appointed in a minimalist holiday style.
[(The information below is valid until February 2017 (subject to change without notice)].
B1 - is a large bedroom (Queen size bed) with some comfy chairs, desk and a private washroom (shower and toilet), a private deck (dinning for 4) (+ a roll-away bed if req). @ Listed price.
B2 - is a medium bedroom (Queen size bed) with built-in wardrobe and access to a shared washroom (shower, bath and toilet) @ $80 per night.
B3 - is a bed filled medium room (4 beds = 2 single beds + bunks) with built-in wardrobe and access to the shared bathroom @ $35 per bed.
For all the rooms (the whole house, up to 8 people) is the price of B1 + $35 per extra person (but we are able to sleep up to 10 with roll-away beds (with negotiation)).
The main part of the house has a large comfy lounge, TV, computers and a wood stove. It free flows into a large dining room and then into a fully equipped kitchen with enough flatware for 10+. There is also a rear deck with a BBQ and space for up to 8 to dine (and feed the birds).
Breakfast is on us but we can also provide for (and prepare) all meals if so desired. Otherwise feel free to cook in our kitchen.
Also provided is high speed Internet, fishing gear, board games, lots of books, some wet-suits and a clothes washing machine. We feed up to 6 varieties of parrots (and we had a few chickens until the fox got them but we still provide) free-range eggs.
There is plenty of parking in our quiet court and we can organize access to a tennis court and surf lessons. Anglesea is surrounded by a large State Park with a variety of walking and cycling paths and the local BMX/Bike track/circuit is just around the corner.
We are 3-5 minutes walk to the river, 4-6 minutes walk to shopping, restaurants and the local pub and just 8-10 minutes walk from the beach.
If you do not have a car a V-Line bus runs 2 times a day (connects to Geelong 40 minutes away). Anglesea is just 15 minutes drive from Bell’s Beach and Torquay, about 25 minutes to Lorne and approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes from the big city of Melbourne (via a direct hwy link).
We hope you choose to stay with us and visit Anglesea, which is near to all that the Victorian Surf Coast has to offer; Wineries, Beaches, Restaurants, Markets, Forest, SURF and of course, The Great Ocean Road.
PS. During your stay my son has volunteered to help with guest luggage, resupply of essentials, maps, directions and suggestions and any gear like boards, wet-suits, tennis racquets, games etc...

Guest access

Guests have access to everything inside the house (including my pantry) and outside (BBQ, wetsuits and a couple of old boards). We provide FReggs, bread, milk, bacon, spreads, coffee, tea for breakfast ( + we have flour, rice, pasta etc so if you are caught without dinner we can provide).

Interaction with guests

Some of our guest like to get to know us a bit and we welcome that. We often join guests for meals and spend time on the beach as guides or just company. Conversely, we are happy to let y'all do your thing.

The neighborhood

We are situated in a small court (10 holiday houses) about 4-5 minutes walk to the shops and pub and 8-10 minutes walk to the beach. Most of Anglesea is only inhabited during the summer months. From Easter until October the beaches are mostly empty (but that's when the whales pass by).

Getting around

There is little in the way of public transport except for the Bus that travels the Great Ocean Road twice a day. During summer holidays there are extra buses but otherwise Taxis can get you around town. {NEWs Sept 2014 - There is an in town bus service starting soon. For info check out the Surf Coast local govt website}

Other things to note

We can assist in Kangaroo viewing at the local golf course (best way to see the Roos is to play a round of golf but you can also go near dusk or at dawn ). There are other places to view them as well, but we keep them a secret until you arrive.

Ian's place is a good stay, well appointed and spacious, basically it's a tidy three bedroom family home sleeping about 8 with the parents bedroom away from the kids. Perfect for families.

Very comfortable room with excellent amenities. Anglesea shops are only about a 10 minute walk. Property is in a quiet area and is very peaceful. Ian was a brilliant host. We were on the Great Victorian Bike Ride and he not only drove me out to the camp site 4 km away to pick up our bags but he also drove us back the next morning. Enjoyed having a nightcap with Ian when he finished work. Great breakfast too!

Ian User ProfileIan is a superhost.

My son and I are easy going guys who are simply renting a few spare rooms (but not neccesarily my life, meaning, I mostly keep to downstairs unless my guests want company). People come here for 'The Great Ocean Road', so I give my guests space to enjoy their stay in whatever manner they wish. We have lots of maps and info to help you do just that.
I host because I was once taken in by an Armenian taxi driver and his family (in Georgia, for a week, when I could not access my bank account). They opened their home and hearts and even sold their car radio to buy dinner. I want to pay-forward that great kindness. And travelling these days is expensive. Most every guest tells me I could charge more but I try to be balanced. So come and stay with us and if you like we can help you to get to know the wonderful town of Anglesea and the Great Ocean Road.
