Beach House, Rye
we love this because…
It has an amazing amount of space for when we want to get our large group getaway of friends together. It’s our perfect beach house on the Mornington Peninsula. Being so close to the beach you can hear the waves breaking at night and smell the sea air on the deck in summer. You will need to walk up a number of steps to the front entrance (it’s not for the faint-hearted or infirm!) as the house is situated high on a sand dune.
We love that there are so many spaces in this house for our huge group to not feel confined. Some choose to head to the front garden and light a fire in the firepit, sit around and chat under the gazebo.
Others swim and lounge around the sparkling pool (solar heated) or play a game of pool in the lower lounge. We choose drinks on the lower deck sitting on bar stools at a high table. It’s our location for evening cocktails, but we all come together around the dining table that seats everyone.
We love to walk to the end of the road and take the pathway to the Coastal Walking Track of the Point Nepean National Park and then come back in a loop passing Rye Ocean Beach and we watch the surfers mastering the waves. Walking the length of the beach we watch the waves crash against the shore and experience the reinvigorating power of the sea air, a relaxing and a reconnecting with nature.
For dinner or lunch, we head to St Andrew’s Beach Brewery and its busy vibe. Book one of the old horse stables for your group and try a paddle of beer. For coffee, we head to Hunter Cafe and Store in the small set of shops at Dundas Street a 2-minute walk away.
Please note that the property has security cameras outside that monitor the exterior, including the pool area.

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 trees and bushes, there are lots of interesting smells. Are those possums in the trees?
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 had a great time at Sandy Shores over a weekend stay. The house is beautiful and has lots of rooms as well as some entertainment options such as the board pool, swimming pool and the ring catcher game. Communication with renter was easy and usually responds very quickly. Highly recommend this house!

It had the perfect layout for our group and everyone was very impressed. The furniture was all beautiful and high quality and whole place was so well decorated. The steps leading up to the front door were epic! Loved that there were 3 bathrooms - essential for a large group like ours! Also loved that there were premium features such as Netflix, a Nespresso machine and a UE boom! We actually brought our own but didn't need to use them at all

Beautiful home only minutes away from the beach that made for a fantastic family getaway. We booked for 2 nights, however would recommend at least 3+ nights.
