About the property


NOTE: SORRY WE DO NOT ALLOW SCHOOLIES BOOKINGS (Please do not send Schoolies Enquiry).

The Guesthouse Rye is a FRONT BEACH (4 blocks back from Point Nepean Road) light filled, spacious, luxury escape beach house, set in a great location, with a short 450 metres (less than a 10 minute stroll) to the front bayside beach of Rye with traffic lights for easy access to the beach. Close enough to the town centre to walk in with the family and get yourself some dinner, a drink or even an ice cream and walk home again.

The Guesthouse Rye is also ideal for girls weekend groups spending time at

The Peninsula Hot Springs along with a spot of shopping at Sorrento and breakfast at The Peninsula Pantry. It is ideal for boys golf weekends, within a short drive to world class golf courses and a short stroll to the pub. Book The Guesthouse Rye with a group of mixed couples of friends and head to the local vineyards like Ten Minutes By Tractor, Montalto and Red Hill Estate, just to name a few. Don't forget to call into The Independant Wine Store in the Main Street of Rye for some wine tasting also.

A break from the beautiful local beaches may see you enjoy a very short drive to the nearby world class Golf Courses, Wineries, Peninsula Pantry, A Mini Kitchen, Cups Vineyard and Peninsula Hot Springs. During the summer school holidays a funfair is setup nightly on the foreshore within walking distance from The Guesthouse Rye. After enjoying a fun filled day on the beach, head back to The Guesthouse Rye and relax. You have the option of cooking up a storm in the fully equipped kitchen or throwing dinner on the 4 burner hooded BBQ with side burner. Enjoy your meals indoors at the 8 seater dining table (plus 3 stools at the kitchen island bench and a high chair) or dine alfresco on the front entertaining deck at the outdoor setting. Alternatively you could take a short stroll to the many fine local restaurants, pubs or the RSL.

The Guesthouse Rye is a spacious, bright, light filled weatherboard house with hardwood timber floorboards throughout the kitchen and main dining/living areas with carpet in each bedroom. A generous size front deck overlooking the moonahs with outdoor table setting offers morning shade and afternoon sun while the rear fully fenced patio/BBQ area with full covered pergola with outdoor table setting allows BBQ's under any weather condition. This is a fully fenced secure property on a corner block that offers off street parking for car/boat/jet ski.

The Guesthouse Rye is comfortable and large enough to accommodate two or three families, large groups and still cosy enough for couples or a single family getaway with large open plan lounge/dining area, separate bathroom and laundry. Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, domestic Bosch fridge, Aldi Pod Coffee Machine along with enough crockery, cutlery and glasses for all guests.

Our beach home is nicely tucked away behind a natural treed buffer block of 945 sqm, offering complete privacy and seclusion, with a shaded afternoon front yard, full morning sun out the back, and is fully fenced which is safe for the kids to play in, whilst keeping your mind at ease.

Great property and lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our recent holiday. With four adults and four kids we had plenty of room. The house is very comfortably furnished and a short walk to the Rye pier, shops and beach. The owners were very friendly and responsive to any emails. Thanks again Matthew and Christina.

Fantastic holiday for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Guesthouse for my mums 60th. It was a terrific house with an open plan living, dining, kitchen area and plenty of space for us 8 adults, 2 kids and 2 dogs. It was very nicely furnished, very comfy and had great back and front outdoor spaces! The owners were very helpful and had great communication with us. The house was in a great location, only a 5 minute walk from Rye shops. Would definitely recommend this house! Thanks so much for having us!
