Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stay !!! Recently stayed for 2 nights with my dad for his birthday. It was home base for our 2 days of fishing around the coast !! The house was really nice, comfortable & well appointed. It was super clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Loved the big couches to relax and watch TV. The air con was awesome as we had two really warm days. Really appreciated the milk & juice in the fridge, nice touch. Enjoyed the back deck, had a nice BBQ and chilled on the dining setting. Loved that it is tucked away from the main strip but still only a short drive to the main shops of Rye. Perfect location. Definitely felt like a home away from home. Will definitely be back. Owners were a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Kristine and Russell for letting us stay in your beautiful place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cottage on the Terrace Rye This lovely cottage was perfect for us, our two teenagers and dog, light and clean, with comfortable beds a great kitchen and living area and treetop views from the rear deck. It was very clean and contemporary; having everything we needed for three days stay - including complimentary basics, juice and milk and coffee on our arrival! It was quiet and conveniently located to both the beach and shops, while retaining the charm of the beach house in the dunes so typical of the Mornington peninsula. off street parking with shelter for our bikes and a big back and front garden area for our dog Jum to play in. Highly recommend .
