Why Tamara Volkoff chose Rye
this miners cottage has been renovated in cool scandi styling with plenty of old world charm. Walk to the wine store which is just at the end of the street, the local coffee shop too, and skip across road to the walk everywhere! soaring ceilings and stained windows keep the cottage bright and light, yet privacy is assured as the fencing and gardens surround the property so you can truly relax - pefect to chill out on wrap around deck
What makes this House unique
we fell in love with the cottage as soon as we saw it - the location is AMAZING and the house is so comfortable - we decided to keep many of the original features so that you feel the history but still have all the modern conveniences we all love. the cottage garden is a delight and changes throughout the seasons, a pleasure to enjoy all year around.

Beautiful house, with quality fixtures in a perfect location.
We had a lovely stay! The house has a lovely front garden with a verandah and seating where you can sit and take in the garden and watch your dog explore as it's secure, it also has a great under cover area with a beautiful established garden and a dining table and chairs. We had most meals here as it is so peaceful and private and protected (it rained one of our days and we still enjoyed sitting out here). The living area is lovely - huge big comfy couch and access to Netflix so we could watch movies eavh evening. The bedrooms are all big, and the beds were so comfortable - it was like you were sleeping on a cloud and to top it off, each room has a huge mounted TV. Shower was huge and easy to access as I was staying with my elderly mother and separate toilet which is nice. The beach is a short block away and if you turn right and walk along the foreshore you can access the off-leash section of the beach which was gorgeous - especially around 5ish when the tide was out. Overall I would say that this is one of the best houses I have stayed at - it ticked all the boxes and Oli my small pooch loved it as did my mum and I. Thank you Tamara!!
The whole experience was fantastic! Tamara was a great host, very informative about the area and everything we needed to know about the property was communicated really well. The property was great, clean, tidy and felt extremely homely. Was equipped with everything you’d need, including a fully stocked kitchen to be able to cook a meal like you would at home. Would definitely recommend this property for a holiday in Rye!
This property is amazing... I've stayed in a few different places down in Rye, as it's a family favourite, and this place has been by far the best.
Beautiful cottage style home, in a perfect location, only a stones throw from one of best beaches in the area.
Very close to the local Woolies supermarket as well, which is great for families.
Four large screen TVs, 1 in the main lounge area, and 1 each in the bedrooms. plus Foxtel or Netflix if you have an account already. No issues with internet connection either, it's all seamless.
Pet friendly as well, my little pooch had a ball there.
Having said that, the stand out for this little gem would easily have to be Tamara. He attention to detail, and communication is exceptional. She really goes above and beyond to make sure you have the best time while you're there.
I'd highly recommend this property, and can't wait for our next stay there.
A Stay with our Furry Friends
The property was very clean and tidy and had everything you would want. It was lovely that our dogs were able to sleep on the furniture and beds and there were no restrictions. We had a very relaxing time and Tamara was very helpful.
Home away from home!
I highly recommend this home away from home!
With plenty of garden adventures for and the beach a short walk away, our kids and furbabies had a wonderful time!
Our host left a lovely welcome pack of goodies for the whole family that were much appreciated when we arrived. The lounge was a great place to gather and watch one of the many movies on the shelf, with WiFi access and everything on Foxtel to keep the kids occupied after the sun set. The beds were soft and cosy, and breakfast in the beautiful garden was a lovely way to greet the morning.
We all can’t wait to stay here for a bit longer the next time we visit Rye!
