Happiness by the Beach

we love this because….

Happiness is a holiday by the beach.  Simply pulling into the driveway of HAPPY VALLEY puts a smile on our faces.  We love a weatherboard and this one is as cute as a button.  It has topiary bushes at the entrance and its wide front verandah is where we sit on a summer night.

We bring our family and our four-legged friends for an escape from the busyness of city life.

Pushing back the large bifold doors it allows us to extend the outdoors in with an inbuilt BBQ opposite the dining, it seems to make this cottage twice the size.

The kids run and play on the lawn with the dog (although he has his own kennel to escape them) and they spend the day digging in the sandpit or bouncing on the inbuilt trampoline.

We walk 15 minutes to Captains of Rye and love its laid back feel and quirky decor and eat outside if we can.  Or for something special we always choose Steam Restaurant, you can’t get fresher seafood. Pick out your oysters from the oyster tank.

In the summer the Rye Carnival is in town and no matter the age we all have fond memories of Fairy Floss and Carnival games you never seem to win.  The water babes love a snorkel at Octopus’ Garden under the Rye pier to marvel at the sealife from Weedy Sea Dragons to majestic Stingrays.

*COVID – if you are unable to travel due to COVID restrictions and/or we are unable to host you then we will contact you to offer a change of dates, credit note or refund.


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

Yay! a garden with tall fences to keep me safe.  Love the lawn and my own house outside to sleep in.

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 stayed in Happy Valley Rye and everyone including our pooch had a pawsome time in the accommodation. Excellent location for activities such as the beach and wineries and has a wonderful homey feel in their property. We’ll definitely come back for more and check out on their other properties.

Absolutely loved our recent stay at Happy Valley in Rye. The house is so comfortable and it was great not having to take towels, bedding etc. Took advantage of booking some Add Ons which was a wonderful idea; meant we could just chill instead of shopping! Extremely comfortable beds and wonderful secure yard for our old doggy. Can't wait to go back.

Gorgeous property, super close to the Springs and shops, immaculate and cosy.

What a lovely little coastal retreat. Beds are comfy and so warm and inviting. Very well equipped and clean and tidy. Great yard for the fur children (well fenced and grassy) and the fire pit a treat for those cold winter evenings. Easy access and good communication.
