About Greg Hopkins
Active middle aged (young at heart) husband and father of three, who has always been involved in sports and who is always trying to recapture his early fumbling surfing skills. As someone with a strong family background, sporting captain and coach and and current 25 years + employer for Civil Engineering consultancy, I would like to think I am loyal and considerate of others, which ensures that each tenant is warmly welcomed.
Greg Hopkins purchased this House in 1996

This property satisfied our initial young families needs. Giving our city children a small taste of my wife's rural background with the adjoins parkland, while having one of the best beaches nearby. Will be long term retirement location.

Great house and peaceful location
A lovely property and location. Very peaceful, surrounded by nature making it easy to relax. Easy access to Anglesea town and amenities. Greg was very helpful and welcoming. We very much enjoyed our long weekend.
Your positive review of your lovely weekend is much appreciated. Happy to hear that you enjoyed a relaxing time away.
Beautiful bush setting
Loved staying at this vey well presented property amongst the birds, kangaroos and lovely trees. Walk into town only takes 20 minutes along bushy tracks. Hopefully we can return.
Sam, a pleasure to have you and your family. Your positive review is much appreciated and I am pleased that you enjoyed your time away at our house. Regards, Greg.
Recharging the batteries!
This property was ideal for our group of 5 adults and 2 children. It was value for money and had all the basic facilities that we needed. Tucked away near the golf course we saw lots of kangaroos in the evenings and it was away from the busy main street but in fact just a short walk to the shops via the trail so we didn't need to drive.
Greg was excellent to deal with and communicated regularly and went the extra mile to return a left behind item. Thanks Greg.
Thank you for your kind review. Value for money is what we hope to achieve and I am pleased we satisfied your families holiday requirements.
We had such a lovely relaxing stay- walking and enjoying the tranquility of the setting.
The house is perfectly located and is delightful, the garden a perfect bush garden and all so close to amenities. Waking to the sounds of the Bush and breaking waves of the ocean was great.
The house is clean, well equipped and has a lovely bathroom.
We highly recommend “Bush by the Sea”.
Thank you Greg for sharing your house and being the perfect host.
We hope to return next year.

Meridith and Rob, so glad that you enjoyed your Christmas time away at our house, experiencing the relaxing environment in which it is situated. Your positive review is much appreciated and we look forward to having you again sometime.
We stayed for just over a week with our two dogs and had a lovely experience. Beautiful setting, very comfortable house, and the property manager, Greg, was excellent to deal with. Thank you so much for a special holiday.
Zuzanna, thank you for your positive review. It was my pleasure to ensure that your stay was enjoyable. Regards, Greg
We were very pleased the house, with it's beautifully renovated bathroom and welcoming feel. The house was clean and had everything you could need and would expect to be in your own home.
The location is great, easy to find, and walking distance to the beach and town through the lovely nature reserve. We also enjoyed using the boardgames that were available, and spending time on the back deck, which is equipped with a hammock, table & chairs, and a bbq.
We stayed at the end of November/start of December, and a Christmas tree had been put up and decorated before we checked in. The host, Greg, had also arranged a fresh bottle of milk in the fridge for us. These gestures were a lovely and thoughtful addition to our stay.
Check in/out was an easy process, and we were even offered early check in as the house was already ready for us, on this occasion.
Greg is a fantastic and caring host, who clearly puts a lot of thought in to providing a positive stay for his guests.
We highly recommend Bush by the Sea, and would love to go back ourselves one day.
Thanks again, Greg!
Almost the perfect holiday! Considering your unfortunate early departure, you sound like you threw yourself into your stay. Your positive review of the house and my hosting, while flattering, is much appreciated and welcomed! We look forward to you visiting again sometime.
