Driftwood House on Anelida is a beautiful newly refurbished 3 bedroom property located in Rye on the border with Blairgowrie. It therefore offers convenient access to both these popular spots on the Peninsula as well as excellent beach access.

All rooms are beautifully appointed in fresh greens and blues with a modern beachy vibe.

This stunning property has everything that you will need to make your next stay on the Peninsula relaxing and tranquil.

Outdoors, the alfresco lounge and dining area, offers guests plenty of room to spread out for some serious chillaxing. This area is seriously beautiful, welcoming and spacious. The deck BBQ means meal times can comfortably move outdoors to the large outdoor table with bench seating.

Inside, the main hub of kitchen/dining/lounge is open plan and beautifully appointed. Bright and light-filled, the lounge area has 3 couches, books and wall-mounted TV (access your Netflix account). The soundbar can be used to connect via Bluetooth to your music device. WiFi is also available for guest use. Really you wont want for anything else.

The kitchen is all new, and has all the features and equipment for easy meal preparation. This includes induction cooktop and electric oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, an Aldi coffee pod machine and all the cooking gear for your stay.  The pantry has some basic cooking ingredients such as seasonings and oil.  The kitchen is open to the dining area so all guests can be engaged in meal time conversation. The large square dining table fits all guests comfortably.

The main spacious bathroom, has a full sized bath which is great for families with small children, plus of course shower, toilet and vanity.  Bath towels for each guest is supplied. 

Two bedrooms (one queen bed and one double bed) have built-in robes and all beds come with pretty bedding detail. They are lovely and inviting.  4 people are therefore accommodated in these bedrooms.

The third bedroom offers 2 sets of single bunks and accommodates 4 people. It also has it's own TV. Again all lovely bedding is provided.

The Bungalow is a wonderful recent addition to Driftwood which you can use as a rumpus/games, TV room or retreat area and to accommodate extra guests.  It also has a pool table which flips over into an air hockey table so perfect for rainy days. Imagine fun game time with friends and family. The bungalow offers 4 sofas which can be converted into extra beds. 2 sofas are single size and 2 are double size, so we suggest 4 can sleep here. Please note unlike the main house, you will need to bring your own sheets, pillow slips plus doonas and covers for use with these sofa beds. You also need to bring bath towels.  Pillows are provided. The Bungalow bathroom also houses the washing machine and clothes dryer.

Pets are allowed by arrangement and guests must disclosed and seek advice on this when making an enquiry and before any booking is confirmed.

Driftwood House features a new sauna in the car port area. Relax and enjoy the health benefits of your own private sauna.

Please see the fabulous pictures which show further details of what to expect with respect to room size and property amenities.

Paul (Great Place for our family holiday.)
Great Place for our family holiday.

Wonderfull location in a very quiet street. Enjoyed walking to shops each morning, and then taking the pick of the surf beaches, or bay beaches. Great amenities, super BBQ, and outdoor area.

Cosy Beach House

The property was extremely clean and well equipped. Sadly the weather wasn't kind to us but we were well entertained with a huge TV, movies and games. Our fur baby enjoyed the large yard! The only minor thing that Id suggest to improve would be having bedside lamps in the bedrooms.

Can’t wait to come back

Loretta’s place was amazing. Everything we needed and wanted. So close to the beach which was a short walk away. The bungalow was a great place to escape and relax in. Can’t wait to come back

My family and I were very impresse

My family and I were very impressed with Driftwood house! It was full of great surprises:) The outdoor area is fantastic and very well done. The bungalow was great and even came with an extra bathroom which is always handy when staying with a group of people! The games room came in handy as we didn’t have great weather. Loretta was wonderful and so lovely to deal with. She was able to accommodate our request for a few less nights over the busy season as we couldn’t get time off work to stay the entire week. Thanks for having ya Loretta!

Fantastic stay away from home, with perfect amenities

Fantastic stay away from home, with perfect amenities and a fabulous outdoor area for relaxation and dining. The bungalow allows more space for separate areas for guest of different interests!!Would highly recommend it to a family, 2 families staying together or just a group of friends! Short walk to both front and ocean (back) beaches) Would gladly stay there again

We recommend staying there

Loretta was a fantastic host and the property is a great place to stay for a young family. We enjoyed our time there. Rye is a perfect area for travelling with a toddler. We were near the jumping castle and amusement park, a great park to play in and a toddler friendly front beach and toddler friendly coffee shop with a play area and free babycinos. We will stay in that area again soon. Location is within convenient driving distance to everything that matters locally, and the house is renovated and comfortable. We recommend staying there.

Hi, my name is Loretta and I am the face behind Good House Holiday Rentals.

As your host I am more than happy to answer all your questions on the properties I manage. My unique management service is backed by a network of locals, which ensures properties are perfectly prepared and guests are comfortable and more importantly have a wonderful stay.

When I'm not working, I get to spend time with my 2 active gorgeous boys, and with my terrific hubbie we too love to travel as much as we can. Actually it's due to our past experiences as Airbnb guests in Australia and overseas, that my management service started. We tried Airbnb and loved the concept and so

Good House was born and the rest as they say is history.

I am a born and bred Melbournian of Italian (Website hidden by Airbnb) of course I love all things Italian....language, food and culture.

Our family motto is life is for living and it's wonderful experiences which enrich our lives.

Thanks for your interest.
