Sleeps 8 3 Bedrooms 1 Bathroom


Positioned in the heart of it all, just a 350m to the gorgeous White Cliffs beach and Tyrone Foreshore, Peninsula Holiday Rentals invites you to experience this stylish 3 bedroom home, a lightning bolt of creativity in the form of a newly renovated retreat with an authentic retro ambience, complete with fireplace and 8-seater spa.

The fully equipped kitchen includes all your necessities, plus an induction stovetop, dishwasher, Nespresso Coffee Pod Machine, microwave and percolator.  Indoor dining is available for 8.

Offering two separate living areas on either side of the central, open plan living and dining area, both areas are ideal to sit back and relax with a good book and glass of wine, or perhaps turn back the clock and spin some of your favourite vinyl records on the turntable which is complemented by a vintage Sansui amplifier. The rear living area is a change of pace, a bright and airy space with a comfortable 3-seater sofa, TV, DVD/Bluray player (with USB input) and an array of books for your enjoyment.

LightningRye is the perfect place to escape at any time of year, equipped with reverse cycle air-conditioning and ceiling fans for the summer months, and an enticing fireplace in the front living room to warm yourself by during the winter months.

Open the back door and explore the expansive backyard, perfect for a game of backyard cricket. The undercover patio area is ideal for catching up with friends and family while enjoying the BBQ and outdoor dining facilities, or perhaps relaxing in the 8-seater spa.

LightningRye also has 2 street frontages, meaning there is ample car parking available, and plenty of room for secure boat/jet ski storage.
