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 favourite 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.




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).

The beach nearby is fine for me to walk on a lead but my hoomans take me to the many leash free beaches and parks in the area.

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.

We loved staying at Bay Lyf in the week lead up to our wedding! It was also an incredible place to get photos while we were getting ready for our big day. Such a great place to stay with the family, and we loved the hamper on arrival. We will certainly be using Coastal Retreats again in the future!

Beautiful home, amazing backyard for all fresco dinners and your furry friend. Everything was clean, stylish, and cosy. There is room for two cars in the driveway, but side street parking is not far at all. The agent which manages the property was very responsive, polite, and professional at all times.

Perfect for dogs, kids and entertaining. Massive back yard that the dogs thought was a dog park. Completely secure and lots of seating for entertaining. Kitchen is fully stocked with appliances, utensils and everything you need and more.
