5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have now stayed with OceanBlue 3 times and at the Blue Moon cottages twice.

While initially attracted by the dog-friendly accommodation, we would now stay at OceanBlue properties anyway - the facilities provided are generally excellent and the staff are easy and flexible to deal with.

Shearwater cottage is the largest property in a group of 3 (although the others are practically invisible). It has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, making it an excellent place to share with friends or an extended family. There are 2 living spaces and a large common dining room, meaning we could be as together or separate as we wanted at any time during the stay.

The linen provided is of a high quality, the kitchen has plenty of equipment and there are games, books and local guides available. The basic food items and cleaning supplies are also appreciated. and there's even water and food bowls supplied for the dogs.

The cottage itself is an easy walk to a dog-friendly...

Management response:

Thanks so much for the lovely feedback and the detail on the accommodation at Shearwater Cottage. How right you are about the closeness of the cottages but the independence of each, you really wouldn't know the others are there when you stay. We also love the fact that the walk to the beach is only a couple of minutes. Love...

Very nice house in Rye, has everything you need, very close to everything walk into Rye and beach.

I would recommend this cottage and the other two at the back i have stayed in all three.

Sian is very helpful in making a very smooth process.

Management response:

Thanks for the review. XX We think one of the best things about the cottages is the location. Close enough to the beach and the town but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. Hope to see you back again soon.

About the neighborhood
Blue Moon Cottages is located close to the bayside beach at Rye on the Southern Tip of the Mornington Peninsula. There is a beach approximately 200 metres away from the house where swimming is perfect and its only a 10 minute walk from there to shops and restaurants. Rye itself has a pier, large childrens playground, the famous Octopussys Garden and the fair is located on the foreshore during the summer holidays.

The historic township of Sorrento is only a 10 - 15 minute drive away toward to furthermost tip of the Peninsula, here you will find beautiful shopping for clothes, furniture, food, art and antiques. From here you can also get the ferry across the bay to Queenscliff for either a visit and a return journey or to take your car and start your journey down the Great Ocean Road....
