Splash around in the stunning 12m heated pool (note solar is always on, but a small extra fee of $200 for gas heating to be switched on) - fully landscaped, totally private so you can enjoy your pool time without any neighbors looking in!


Classically styled, and including amazing entertainment systems, this most accommodating coastal residence delivers room for all the family and friends - only registered guests on premise (up to 18 maximum or as per booking if less guests selected for booking - we are NOT a party house and all guests must be included on booking)

5/5 Excellent

Huge place. Swimming pool with gas was like a bath. TV's in every adult bedroom,
Walk to the main street was easy - we used google maps tho. Rye had everything we needed. Three adults and two toddlers, lets say we had afternoon sleeps, good for Nanna she got to lie in bed and watch a movie. We didn't use everything but there is a BBQ and lots of lounging around the pool in warmer months.

5/5 Excellent

Highly recommended, especially for dogs
Wonderful property, I had a great mini break with 2 teens and 2 dogs. It really is a super dog friendly home. Huge for 3 people but we really enjoyed the space, especially the lovely gardens and of course the pool. Tamara was welcoming, thorough and made us all feel at ease immediately. Ill be back.
