Baleine at Rye

Baleine/French pronunciation
Ba . lèn
Perched on a dune in Boon warrung country (Mornington Peninsula). Catch the occasional glimpse of passing whales.
Views out to sea, down to the valley and over towards Arthurs Seat. Good for sunrises, sunsets and rolling sea fogs. Come and stay and let those Bass Strait breezes blow all the cobwebs away.
From the deck, through the tea tree, the back beach beckons. Our pristine ocean is wild and its waves lull us to sleep and enter our dreams. All three bedrooms have picture windows and plush bedding, twinkling stars and big skies.
The lovely Jøtul wood burner keeps your toes toasty in the open plan living area and Nobo panel heaters keep you warm in the bedrooms. On the cosier nights, you can also enjoy the extensive games cupboard and book selection available to you.
Walk hand in hand to the Ocean beach, stay in and read a book, trawl the local Op Shops for treasure, discover what the nearby Farmgates have to offer, fly a kite in the wide open spaces or search for shipwrecks at beaches close by. This beautiful accommodation is destined to help you create those precious holiday memories.

“A great place for a family, very cosy and clean, in a fantastic location with amazing views. Highly recommend.”

Gilbert, November 2021

“Excellent location with great views. Well set up accomodation with all you need for cooking etc.”

Geoff, November 2021

“Beautiful views, very quiet and a wonderful place to relax on the deck. Lovely beds and linen. Can’t wait to come back.”

Caroline, April 2022


“If you are looking for great coastal views, with dunes and native bush in the foreground, plenty of space from neighbours, a get away, this holiday house delivers. Great outdoor spaces, with decking. Great for a couple, as it only has one bathroom, however all other expectations were exceeded, we found the house super comfortable well set up for holiday let. Also pet friendly!”

Maryke, March 2022

“Set up high in Rye back beach streets, the views from the property are fantastic. It is as someone else posted, ‘cosy’ but it was totally fine for our family of 4. 1 queen, 1 double and 1 single bed. Toilet is in the bathroom. All you needed for a pleasant and relaxing stay was provided, even the use of beach umbrella’s which was very handy.”

Rachael, January 2022

“Couldn’t recommend this stay enough. Quiet, back beach location. Walking distance to great coffee shop. Breath taking view and well thought out kitchen. I even made a cake with the mini kitchen aide. Perfect for couple or small family getaway.”

Erin, December 2021


“Great communication and documentation for help around the property!”
