The Starfish

The Starfish, Rye

The Starfish was originally a humble beach shack that has now been tastefully restored into the charming cottage it is today. Perfect for a relaxing family holiday or romantic getaway, it is located just 350 metres walk from the beach.

The cottage boasts elements of its original features, including Tasmanian oak floorboards, combined with contemporary features that include a modern kitchen and bathroom.

The spacious and light filled open plan living area has a comfortable lounge suite, TV, DVD player, Chromecast, air-conditioning and a 6 seat dining table. The kitchen is well-equipped with a cook top, oven, dishwasher, and fridge/freezer.

There are a total of 3 bedrooms. Two bedrooms each have a queen bed, while the third bedroom has two single beds. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower, washing machine and dryer. All linen, pillows, blankets and towels are provided.

Families and children are very welcome at The Starfish. There are board games, books, toys and high chairs available.

The living area has bi-fold glass doors which open out onto a deck and courtyard. There is outdoor dining furniture for 6, two sun loungers, a BBQ, fire pit and plenty of room for children to run around and play. An outdoor hot/cold shower is very handy after a day on the beach. The whole garden is enclosed by a tall brush fence, providing the ultimate in privacy.

There is a secure parking area on the corner of the property which is protected with a coded padlock gate. There is ample room for at least 4 vehicles, or boats, jet skis and kayaks.

The cottage is professionally cleaned, inspected and prepared before each stay, so you can be guaranteed the property is spotless on your arrival. On hot days, you will find the air-conditioning turned on before you arrive.

The Starfish is located in a quiet and peaceful neighbourhood. Take a 5 minute walk to the end of flat street where the Rye foreshore meets the sandy bay beach of Port Phillip.
