'Staying at Bronwyn's cosy apartment was relaxing, rejuvenating and delightful. We had beautiful sea views from our balcony. The room was very clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. This place is a great escape from our usual inner city lifestyle and technology. We played with the little board games that were provided, letting our inner child come out for a bit. Location was great, very central to restaurants, beaches and historical features. Bronwyn and her partner have been such great host! We shall definitely come around again!' Chauvy and Tim Jan 2017'5 stars simply isn't enough for the experience we've had at Bronwyn's property! The studio was impeccably presented and exactly as we'd hoped for. Upon arrival there were a couple of beautiful personal touches which really made us feel valued guests. The property had everything we needed to make it a comfortable stay and what an amazing deck with the most incredible sea views! Location was exceptional and situated at the top of a small close providing us with the much needed peace and quiet. The beach (probably the best one in the bay) was just 5 minutes walk away and the cute Blairgowrie row of shops a small 15 minute walk. Bronwyn has been fantastic to deal with throughout the whole process and ensured everything was exactly as we needed! Her communication and attention to detail is second to none. We really are grateful to have stumbled across this little gem!! Will be back again for sure! We're considering becoming AirBnB hosts ourselves and lucky to experience how it really should be done. Thank you Bronwyn! :)' Nick Jan 2017

Spacious, tastefully decorated self-contained STUDIO APARTMENT, 3 mins from Tyrone Beach. Take a morning walk along one of the Peninsula's best beaches or relax on the huge deck with a book taking in the panoramic water views. A short drive from the Peninsula Hot Springs, Red Hill wineries and a variety of golf courses.

The space

This STUDIO Apartment is at the end of a no through street, up on top of a hill being the highest point in this local area. It is a secluded area nestled amongst the tea trees and the Moonahs. Enjoy peace and quiet while sitting out on the deck taking in the amazing water views. Yet you are only a short walk to Tyrone beach and Blairgowrie shops. A short drive to a variety of golf courses, Peninsula Hot Springs, ocean beaches, Sorrento and Portsea rock pools. Swimming with the dolphins at Sorrento or visiting the wineries for lunch at Red Hill.

The studio apartment features a comfortable chiropractic mattress, fresh quality linen and towels, a flat screen TV and a blue ray DVD player. There is an evaporative water cooler and two fin oil heater for your convenience. Tables and chairs are available in the studio apt or dine out on the main deck. Swing in the pod chairs on the deck in the evening with a cheese board and glass of wine or relax in the double hammock to read a good book.

Guests have a private studio apartment with a well equipped small kitchenette. This includes a bar fridge, pod coffee machine, kettle, toaster, small oven, two hot plates, and sink. It is suitable for preparing simple breakfasts, assembling meals and putting together wine and cheese platters. The hallway leads to a private ensuite bathroom and separate toilet and shower.

Four things many of my guests love about our STUDIO APARTMENT are:

•Stunning Bay Views – whether lying in bed or sitting on the deck they just love watching the marine traffic, colors of the water in the bay or sailing boats on a summer weekend.
•Comfortable bed – lots of guests comment they sleep really well with the sea air and a comfortable bed.
•Location – They feel secluded yet only a short walk to the bay and central everything else the Mornington Peninsula has to offer.
•Cleanliness and décor – we pride our home on being clean. Guests find the casual seaside décor relaxing and easy living.

Two things to be aware of about the Studio Apartment are:

•WIFI - there is no internet at the Studio APT due to unreliable connections in the local seaside area. Most guests comment that they love the break from being on the internet and if they need have access on their phones.

•Shared main balcony – We have been renting out both residences over weekends and weekdays for two years now. The feedback from guests is they really enjoyed sharing the deck and meeting new Airbnbers yet also found they had their own privacy. Please read Guest Access below for more details.

Guest access

At our Airbnb Stunning Bay Views Rye there are two places to stay; the HOME and Studio Apartment. Both the APT and HOME have completely separate entrances and are completely separate spaces. Each has their own bathrooms and bedrooms with bay views from the bed, despite being under the one roofline. The only area they do share is a 12 x 6 metre deck, if both parties are there at the same time. The HOME has an additional private deck, 12 x 1 .5 metres upstairs. The APT has an additional private garden deck measuring 4 x 5 metres.

If a couple is booked into the APT then there we only take a booking for a couple in the HOME. Sometimes you may hear guests moving around in the other residence and sometimes you don’t. It is good to be aware of it.

There is separate car park for the HOME in a lock up garage and the APT car park is adjacent to their entrance via the garden deck.

Please read the reviews as this has happened on most weekends for the past two years and most guests end up just passing each other as they go off to explore or sharing a glass of wine on the deck as Airbnb can be a friendly way to travel. If you have any doubts or questions please ask before you book as I am more than happy to discuss the set up with you.

Some weekends it will be Brian and I staying in the HOME or APT.

“The apartment was a perfect base while completing a scuba diving course - it was lovely to come back to at the end of a tiring day! Meeting the guests staying in the house on my first night was also a highlight - the balance of privacy in the house and apartment but with shared balcony works perfectly. Bronwyn was very available and considerate with every aspect of the trip.” Hannah APT March 2015

“The HOME backs onto an apartment and we share the main balcony with this apartment. Initially, we were turned off this idea, wanting privacy but once explained and once we were there, it really is not an issue. Don't be turned off if this sounds like a shared situation. It was quite ok. We only saw the other guests in the other apartment once in the morning. This HOME was a gem and if we didn't have to leave, we would've happily stayed another week.” Lisa Jan 2015

Interaction with guests

I may be there to greet you on arrival, however most times guests will let themselves in with keys from the key safe. I will email you full details prior to your stay that should answer all your questions and guests are free to ask me any questions regarding facilities in the local area prior to staying.
During your stay I am only a text or phone call away if you have any questions or problems.
If we are down staying in the HOME you are welcome to have as much or as little interaction as you enjoy. We have traveled extensively and love meeting people from all across the world. I am very happy to share local knowledge of restaurants and places to explore.
Check out and check in times are: 11 am and after 3 pm. We will try to accommodate guests pending on other bookings.

Other things to note

Lastly, steep driveways equal great views. Please keep this in mind for older people and children. The driveway to 2a Austin St is a shared driveway. I always walk up 2a Austin Driveway then enter the gate and up the steps to number 2 Austin Street. It is not as steep and much safer.

Weekends – Min 2 night stay.
Long weekends – Min 3 night stay.
Easter and Cup weekend – Min 4 night stay.
December/January holidays: Min 5 night stay.

If you book a non public holiday weekend you can stay an extra night for $105. Please inquire for this special offer.

Our family has supported, for the past 10 years, a street kids refuge called Green Gecko. The Green Gecko Project supports over 70 children who previously lived and begged on the streets of Siem Reap, Cambodia. Look up Green Gecko Project if you are interested.

Green Gecko provides security, education, love and opportunities to these children through their formative years and into their adult lives, empowering them to achieve their full potential.
The project also supports the children's families and the broader community through long term health, education and training initiatives.
We give $5 from every night you stay at Stunning Bay Views Rye to the Green Gecko Project.

Bronwyn User ProfileBronwyn is a superhost.

Brian and I love to travel and to meet travellers from all over the world. We love to discover the local places where people go to eat, work and play. My travels have taken me far and wide from the two years backpacking and working in 1980's to many wonderful trips in the past years rediscovering Europe and Asia. Airbnb has allowed us to meet many different people around the world and even experience going to our 2013 Airbnb hosts in Prague's wedding this July.

My motto's of life include;

Travelling 10,000 miles is like reading 10,000 books.
Is your glass half full or half empty?
When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

We also love hosting guests and they are welcome to share the beautiful views from the deck over Tyrone Beach. The cleanest beach in the bay. We provide a tranquil place to relax and there is loads of information on walks and things to do in the Mornington Peninsula.

Our family has supported, for the past 10 years, a street kids refuge called Green Gecko.The Green Gecko Project supports over 70 children who previously lived and begged on the streets of Siem Reap, Cambodia.
