When I booked this place, I did it in a hurry because I was doing a scuba course with Bayplay in a week time. The place used to be called Bayplay Rye beach cottage. Looks like they have at least renamed it now. I assumed it is close to beach and the diving office. It was 30 mins walk with...

We chose this accommodation at the last minute and were fortunate that there was no-one staying in the other 2 cottages as the decks overlook each other. The spa mentioned previously is now a sand pit. While the cabins are a bit old and dated we didn't mind the peace and quiet. There does however need to be some maintenance...

Stayed here Friday & Saturday nights with my partner, mother and two fur babies. My partner and I were in Rye for a scuba diving course & were excited to find a place we could stay over the weekend with our fur kids. The dogs had a blast, they absolutely loved the outdoor deck. The cottage was simple, yet clean...

We went to these cottages with Ted H who has also posted a review we reiterate everything he said. The advertising says "boasting a spa pool" here is a photo of the spa pool. No globes in the bedroom lamps and one end of the lounge room the lights weren't working either. Some windows wouldn't open and all in all...

Tennis court just usable but unswept and lights broken.Whole place run down & a bit grubby, torn furniture.Interesting that the owners replied to previous reviews...

We stayed in Rye Cottage 3, we arrived very late at night and their lock box system work a treat. It is a nice little cottage with all the basic features and clean. I took all our own linen as their site recommended. This cottage is a little dated with a few little flaws but great price, great location and...

Lovely location and loved the cottages - but felt they were not all that clean. Table felt tacky and had to be wiped down when we arrived. Carpet had a few stains that made it less appealing. And vertical blinds were missing some parts - needed replacing. Felt out-dated. But having said that we would return to the cottages again.

Thanks for the review. I hope you do return as we are working on improving the furnishings and the reporting process from our cleaners. We are constantly steam cleaning the carpets, so sorry we didnt get that sorted for you.

Stayed for just one night early Jan. Cabin is quietly located away from the holiday mayhem but only about half a km walk to beach. Cabin is really clean and has everything you need in good working order at reasonable cost. Would stay again if lookin for low cost low fuss simple getaway.

Sorry you did' t enjoy your stay, but as you know, we have responded to your many reviews and once again will stipulate that we did send out an electrician and did our best to rectify the problem, considering it was New years eve. Rather than worst stay, it should say worst luck - for the both of us.
