Our Backyard – Anglesea

Welcome to Anglesea 

I first started exploring the world when I was 19, it was the beginning of a 12 month adventure of backpacking. I was in a beautiful relationship and it was my boyfriend at the time, that gave me an around the world ticket as a Christmas present! It was a total surprise and I was very fortunate as we had talked a lot about heading overseas. Like most travellers, we were curious to see as many countries as we could, soaking up culture, customs and how people lived their lives.

Finding somewhere to stay for the night was always part of a constant challenge and before too long when we settled in England, purchased an old van which also end up being cosy place to sleep. We were very blessed to have a connection to relatives and when times got a bit tough, we were taken in and looked after with delicious meals, fresh sheets and hot showers! This home away from home made for my fondest memories and special times.  I was always amazed along the journey of how many people were so hospitable, inviting us in – not only to their home but sharing so much. It was a feeling I will always remember and at the time it made such an impression that I vowed to always have an open door policy in my own home, welcoming people to stay, share a meal and good times.

Over the summer here in Anglesea as I was getting my morning coffee from Bomboras in Point Roadknight, there was a sign on the wall from a backpacker working there. A 19 year old Canadian who was staying in a tent and wanted somewhere more comfortable, short term, before heading off to his next destination. That sign was a sign to me to put him up, which I did for the last month. He asked me about contributing to the house and I simply said there was no need as this was my way of ‘paying it forward’ for the incredible people in my backpacking days that looked after me. It was lovely being able to share and we have totally enjoyed his company. Last week a friend and I took him along the Great Ocean Road showcasing some of our favourite places. We had lunch at the Wye River pub, did the walk at the Otway Fly tree top and stopped and took pics of special attractions like the rock stacks at Carisbrook creek.  











He told us Anglesea was by far the best experience he had throughout his 12 months of travelling for the incredible people he worked with that have now become close friends & he was blown away with how lovely the locals had been to him.  

Real estate is so much more than buying and selling property. I think of all the people that stay, have holidays, share their homes and create beautiful memories.

Look forward to seeing you over the weekend at the open for inspections or any property by private appointment.
