With a very short stroll from the apartment your in the heart of rye and at beach front. We could not fault staff service or cleanlinessof the apartment. The pool is lovely as is the surrounding area by it. However the aircon in very loud on all settings and sounded as if it would fall out of the wall and...

Stayed here recently with my wife. I had booked 2 nights over the Australia Day weekend, but unfortunately after trying to check in, discovered that I'd booked for February, not January. The staff were excellent in changing the booking and fortunately had one room left which they discounted to the amount I had already paid. The rooms are basic and...

Conveniently located within walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants. Just 10 mins drive to Portsea for an amazing waterfront dining experience, as well as to the Sorrento Pier for boarding the sea-ferry across to begin our GOR journey. The property is definitely in need of a major makeover. The apartment is spacious but the furnishings looked tired and...

Sorry you were not pleased. All photos, taken professionally, give an overview of our rooms and we state that not all rooms are exactly the same and not all rooms are displayed. We consider this far more interesting to our valued and repeat customers. We take your comments on board and are upgrading, renovating and re-decorating during the winter months...

There is a huge living and dining room with well-equipment kitchen (my wife loves to cook) and a clean bedroom. The owners Lyn & Terry are very friendly and giving us good advice on several sightseeing places. Just across the road...

Spur of the moment adventure with my partner lead us to Rye, we booked in with Moonlight Bay Resort without realising it was a motel until we actually drove past the building. Upon entering the room it's hard to look away from the art work, it's an eyesore to say the least. The room has all you need for a...

Our beds are industry 'king split' and glad they were comfortable. It is policy at Moonlight Bay to take your first night's tariff to secure your booking. If you choose to stay in the...
