Google or Near Map- 16 Ingram Rd. Anglesea for a look at the location.

Our house has been set up so three families can live in the house all together without the hassles of crowded bathrooms.

Yep, there is one bathroom for each family- each with a shower, toilet and vanity.

AS EXTRA to rent-( P.O.A.) We can offer the BUNGALOW in the back yard which has been fully re-lined/insulated and has polished floor boards.

There are two bunk beds that can be seperated from the tv/ lounge area by twin sliding doors.

There are also two couches and a TV in the "louge" part.

Just EXCELLENT for the teenagers to give them their space.

We have recently installed an outside shower that runs off a large water tank - great for after the beach, to get the sand off.

A double bedroom for each couple and a large room for the kids with two sets of double bunks and a fold down couch/bed.


Bed 1- 1 x Queen bed & ceiling fan, 18"Flat screen TV, electric heater, Half- B.I.R.

Bed 2- 1 x Queen bed & ceiling fan, Half - B.I.R.

Bed 3- 1 x Queen bed & ceiling fan, Half -B.I.R.

Bed 4- 1 x Single bunk beds & ceiling fan, Drawers & Shelving TV.

Bed 4- 1 x fold down couch/bed

Living Room 1 x Fold Down Couch/ Double Bed & ceiling fan.


For the period the last two weeks of November and the fist week of December, we must have proof of age, full names and addresses of all people staying to ensure no deception.

A comfortable home that is situated very near the Anglesea River for fishing, canoeing, etc, or just relax and enjoy an Open Fire and a Movie ( Bring your DVD's). There are a number of DVD movies at the house. We also have a very wide selection of music cd's to play.

New LCD Flat Screen TV in the Lounge which will accept a USB input if you have movies, photos on a hard drive.

Walk to the main Surf Beach & Cafe' at the Surf Life Saving Club.

Take a short walk through the bushlands to local attractions including; Surf Beach Cliff Top Walk, Golf Course, Restaurants, Local Pub, Cafe's and Shopping.

Walk or drive to Angelsea Surf Beach to catch a wave or just lay on the beach.

The eastern end of Anglsea beach at the River Mouth, is a great place to take the little kids, as it has shallow warm water and no waves. Take a bat and ball for beach cricket.

Lots of family activity there to keep everyone amused.

You may want to sit with a coffee and a snack whilst taking in the view of ANGLESEA beach from the decking of the Surf Life Saving Club House Cafe. (One of best beach views in Anglesea and Victoria - for that matter)

The COOROONGA PARK "WET LANDS" reserve is just five minutes walk from the house, there you will see an abundance of birdlife on the many beautiful board-walks across the wet lands. There are also many Mountain Bike tracks in and around the wetlands.

You may want to take a paddle boat or a (low) powered boat out on the river. (Just near the bridge on the Great Ocean Road.)

Take a short drive to Torquay to buy up on some surf gear and clothing. All the big surf brands have there direct outlets there, although it can be a bit hectic there, it's always nice to come back to AMBROSE HOUSE and relax.

You may want to stop on the way at LONGBOARDS Bellbrae Winery for a Ploughman's Lunch (highly recommended) or some other fine food with a glass of the wonderful local wine.

Another great lunch spot is Berry Farm, it's only a 15min drive from Anglesea - great food/wine and a lovely spot by a small lake.

We have recently discovered "Gentle Annie's" Berry Gardens & Tea rooms in nearby Deans Marsh for a wonderful trip into the country. Great meals & light lunches, berry-fruit picking (seasonal), fresh produce, licensed. Very lay back and just wonderful.

(Try the mixed berry and ice - cream dessert- Yum !!!)

There are a number of very good Wineries in the region to sample the cellar door sales- make a day trip of it from Ambrose House.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great location and amenities We had a lovely stay at Ambrose House over Easter. The house was very well set up for a large family and had everything that we needed. We enjoyed many walks along the river and to the beach. Close enough to walk to the main shops.
