Awesome accommodation, we had the Bahamas spa bath room. The highlight however was Charles' cooking! The man can cook, and I challenge you to finish an entire meal and be unsatisfied. Enjoyed our stay far more than any motel I'd been to :) Thanks again guys!

Lovely big "plantation American" style homestead with a lovely yellow facade. We loved our bathroom with massive bath and nice comfortable bed. It is in a lovely location right near Rye beach and there were gorgeous sunsets both night. Whilst we think our hosts have a lovely place and have a great level of attention to detail, they were at... More

I just wanted to say thank you to our hosts for such a pleasant and relaxing stay. Although we were only able to stay the Saturday night, we returned to Melbourne so incredibly refreshed. It was a great night sleep, the jacuzzi was toasty on a cold night out and the breakfast was amazing. It's a great location and every... More

Thank you so much for your review. It is really good to know that you have enjoyed staying with us. Your feedback is very important to us as we then know that we are succeeding in what we do. A two night stay gives you even more chance to relax, but that is not always possible. Thank you again More

Lovely little B&B a short walk (maybe 2 blocks) to a very nice beach. Excellent choice for a group of friends or family travelling together. I stayed with my husband, our toddler son, my parents, and sister. We took up all three downstairs rooms, so the privacy concerns mentioned in other posts were not an issue for us. The rooms... More

We have four rooms at Plantation house three on the ground floor, Bahamas, New Havana and Georgia suites. This makes for an ideal family break. It is possible for young children to stay with us in this situation but normally we do not recommend this. But we have had many groups of Friends or family enjoy or facilities while enjoying... More

We stayed here 3 nights on our 5 week journey across Australia. It couldn't have been more perfect for what we needed--a lovely respite to relax and regroup. Charlie and Lorraine know how to run a B&B excellently and with attention to detail. They made us feel like we had known them forever and were most helpful when giving us... More

This B&B is a little haven in Rye. We stayed here for 2 nights for my birthday while we explored the Mornington Peninsula. We were in the Georgia Suite, which is apparently one of the smaller rooms, but it was spacious and had everything we needed to relax. Our host was very gracious and helpful with advice on things to... More

I've never stayed at a B&B before, so this was my first experience, and I can't say nicer things about the entire experience. My partner and I came up here for our anniversary, and we were absolutely blown away at how lovely the house was. We stayed in the Georgia Suite, which was perfect for our two-night stay. The room...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights over the new year. It was perfect for what we needed - a rest. Rye.. has a lot to be desired for, but there are so many beautiful places to find surrounding it. We had the top floor room, it was spacious and light, very clean and very comfortable.

We stayed at Plantation House for 2 nights, one in the Havana Suite and one in the Georgia Suite. The house itself is well located, close to Rye beach and anywhere else by car. There is ample parking at the front of the building and a separate guest entrance to the rooms. The Havana Suite is gorgeous - tasteful and... More
