Old School Summer Holidays are back


Remember those old school type summer holidays that included backyard cricket and long days on the beach. Bay Lyf reminds us of better days, simpler days when things were less complicated.

We adore the original beach house with its maze of rooms but the interiors are so up to date and oozing layers of style.

We walk across the road to the white Sandy beaches of Rye and Tootgarook and spend all our summer days swimming and sunbaking.

If we are feeling energetic we take the Bay Trail walk in either direction and end up at either Rye or Rosebud.  In the summer the funfair is on to entertain the kids in one location and the circus in the other. Perfect.

Our favorite spot for coffee and breakfast is only a 2-minute walk away at The Kitchen and for something special we always choose Veraison Restaurant which is only a 5-minute walk.

This house can have the bunk bedroom closed off during your stay for 6 guests at a lower cost. If you would like the room closed, please see “Little Bay Lyf” instead.




What fun! a new house to visit that lets (SMALL) four-legged friends like me sleep inside.

Yay! a garden with tall fences to keep me safe.  I love walking to the beach where I can go swimming in the ocean with all the other doggies (but only at certain times of the year).

And there’s a special basket just for me. No way!  What’s in there?   Ooh, ooh! a treat from PAWDINKUM.  I LOVE THIS PLACE.

'Stayed 2 nights at Bay Lyf. House was amazing. Communication was also impeccable. Would highly recommend. The outdoor area is the nicest I’ve ever seen.'

Edin, December 2020

Spent a nice week with the family at Bay Lyf. Had a very enjoyable time. Proximity to the beach was great and the kids loved the huge backyard. House was very clean and comfortable, furnishings were very nice and comfortable and it had all the necessary amenities with washing machine, dishwasher, etc. Communications with property manager were very easy.

Stunning decor - when we first opened the front door it was so picturesque, there was even relaxing music playing and mood lighting, which really set the tone for our relaxing vacay - absolutely loved our stay! Thank you!

We had a great time at Bay Lyf. It was better than expected. The outdoor area was awesome and was useable for most of the day due to the way it is setup. Having a fire at night was nice and relaxing. Every thing was clean and tidy - specifically the BBQ. It was clean as a whistle. Appreciate all the help from the hosts with our questions before and during our stay. Inside was super stylish and the setup was great. Excellent having a great coffee shop 100 metres away and the beach 25 metres across the road

The house was lovely with everything you need. Beds were super comfy. Very comfortable for two families. The backyard was amazing…massive! When we weren’t out and about the kids had a great time in the backyard or playing pool. The outdoor fire was fantastic for the chilly nights. Close to everything- beach, supermarket, peninsular hot springs, cafe. If there was one criticism it would be the noisy Point Nepean Hwy - this didn’t affect our stay at all (the kids drown out any morning noise!) but if you’re after a quiet sleep in you might want to pop your ear plugs in!
