“Perfect house for a group getaway”
Reviewed 26 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Booked this house for a weekend getaway with friends. It was the perfect size and had everything we needed! While it's not on the beach, we found we didn't miss it because of the pool and spa. The owner was also very friendly, helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had. Only thing to watch out for is the steep, unsealed driveway.

Thankyou for your comments and i am so glad you enjoyed the pool and spa. We have recently had the driveway re graded but i agree it is a steep driveway ( luckily there is plenty of room at the top to turn around so you dont have to reverse down )

“Clean, comfortable and specious house.”
Reviewed 8 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We had a great weekend on moonah.
Specially swimming pool, jacuzzi, pool table and beautiful view from the balcony upstairs.
We had everything available in the house which we needed to spend our 3 days.

Many thanks to Jean for booking us in a very short note of time. And giving an amazing service. She waited for us late at night until we arrived. And was happy to show us the house at 23:30.

“Great pet-friendly family holiday spot!”
Reviewed 28 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We chose Moonah on Forbes for our Christmas Family holiday this year. The house was fantastic and was setup for families. The pool and spa were a nice added extra which made the trip really enjoyable.

Jane and Mark were fantastic hosts and we will definitly look to come back for other trips in the future.

“Weekend stay”

My friends and I were 12 in total and we enjoyed one of the best weekends of our lives while staying in Moonah on Forbes during our visit to Rye. It is very hard to find comfortable good accommodation for so many people and we were lucky enough to find a house as amazing as Jane's Moonah on Forbes. The house was large and had all sorts of fun activities including an awesome hot jacuzzi, a well balanced pool table and many board games. Jane was also one of the most pleasant, kind and welcoming hosts I have ever come across. If I was to go back to rye again, I would no doubt pick Rye once again.

I stayed here with a relatively large group of friends for x2 nights and found the House and facilities to be excellent.

Large Pool & Hot Tub, x2 BBQ areas, upstairs and downstairs Entertaining areas with lots of parking made it a great fit for our Group.

Situated on hill top with Beautiful views of the surrounds and great sunset viewing from the Top level Balconies.

Thinking of booking it again in Summer!
