Excellent property

Diana - 3rd February 2023

We really enjoyed our stay at Ocean Beach Retreat. The house is well designed and beautifully and thoughtfully furnished. Each room has a lovely aspect and view, the street is very quiet and one can hear the back beach from the terrace. Having a shop nearby is also very convenient. The main issue we had was when we tried to watch a DVD in the main living space the audio did not work. It would also be good to prune the palm tree outside the main bedroom as it hits the wall when it's windy.


Ocean Beach Retreat- Rye

Vicki - 25th July 2022

This was a very comfortable property with plenty of space to spread out. We were there in winter so the slow combustion fireplace in addition to ducted heating was very welcome. All features were as advertised but the standard of fitout was lovely. Kitchen was large and had most things we needed to cook at home. The house was lovely and light and very clean. We took the linen pack option which was handy as we travelled from interstate.location was great - easy to get to all attractions on the Mornington Penisula - would definitely recommend this to friends and would stay again. Property manager was also very helpful and responsive.


Quiet & relaxing. Easy stroll to beautiful beach.

Rebecca - 30th November 2021

Stayed in November for a girls long weekend. Lovely property, better than photos. Easy walk to fantastic ocean beach where there is also the general store who were quite popular for coffee. Area was quiet, neighbour’s friendly. House has 2 bathrooms that are a little dated but clean and in good condition. Coonara for chilly nights, however if there are a few people this area is not big. But the lounge has ample room. Kitchen is well appointed with everything you need. A couple of the single beds were not super comfy but all others were. The deck area is really nice, ample shade. Would be nice to have some games. Would happily stay here again.
