My partner and I absolutely loved the place! Great location, well-maintained and lots of nice touches. We loved the outdoor shower, badminton court and the general cosy feel of the place. Simon was great to deal with and made the logistics very easy. Wish we could have stayed longer than a few days – can't wait to return!
The shack was quiet, clean and had great walks. It was everything we were looking for in a weekend away.
Lovely shack situated in a quiet area of Rye with a great fish & chips shop within walking distance, must try. The house and kitchen was well equipped and Simon was helpful and friendly. We had a great weekend getaway, thank you.
We felt instantly at home & relaxed as soon as we drove up to the property. The outside shower, badminton court, hammock & little pathways made this home something special. We miss it!
Our family had a short and sweet holiday at this property. Communication with the owner leading up to our arrival was prompt and welcoming and we arrived to find a tidy, clean and well stocked abode that matched the description. We loved the creativity invested in the shack - amazing stone work around amphitheatre, beautiful artwork (beachcombers delight) and a sweet hammock and tramp that the kids enjoyed. The hot outdoor shower was a real treat! The shack is down to earth and private with lots of native flora - the perfect location for a beach escape!
Simon was very accommodating and gave us plenty of "local" information about the area (good places to eat etc.)
The cottage was great and had a very homely feel, all in all a great stay in Rye!!
Love that place!
could totally spend a month there.
Very quiet and tranquil.
The stonework around the property is a bit of a mad obsession. I work as a sculptor and use the property to try out different ideas- amphitheatre /stone clad shack all in local granite has taken a few years. Next project is a totally impractical freestanding curved wall with round stone windows to frame some outdoor sculptures ...aim to finish by end of summer - cheers Simon
