A ROMANTIC GETAWAY

We are on holidays in Rye on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. The peninsula is on the southern coast of Australia. The weather here is famous for being unpredictable which makes it hard to pack. We had to pack warm clothes and cool clothes. The weather has been living up to its reputation since we have been here. The first few days were around 19°C/66°F yesterday it shot up to 40°C/104°F. Today it is back to 23°C/75°F. At least it has been sunny everyday so far so that has been good. Every day we go and play with our grandsons from USA while they are staying here in their other grandparents' beach house but in the mornings and evenings we spend in our luxury B&B. Here are some pics of it. 

 This is outside our "Tuscan Villa" the entrance is covered by vines for privacy,

 The entrance with a BBQ for our use in our little back garden. See below


 Inside at the back of the living room there is a little kitchen stocked with all requirements.

 Part of the front of the living room. TV and sound system is on the right.

 The kitchen with an interesting notice.


It sure is a place for a romantic getaway have a look at an entry in the visitors book.


 Gogeous and comfortable bedroom.

Huge bathroom

 There are 5 villas spread out on the 3 acre property which has a swimming pool, pond (above) and lovely gardens.

This is where we have breakfast. Either on the deck or in the beautiful breakfast room overlooking the pool and gardens.

  1. A beautiful place Diane, now that is perfect when visiting the grandies because we all know it can get somewhat tiring trying to keep up with them. " sorry darling, we are not allowed to have visitors over so you can't stay with grandma unfortunately" was that you idea or TOH I wish you and Bill a Wonderful Christmas and every happiness for the new year. I have enjoyed reading all about your adventures throughout the year.

  2. Diane, what a nice place for a getaway. I love the bathroom and the garden/pond area is pretty. The guestbook entry was funny.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  3. It looks wonderful. But how disappointing and common to spoil it with dire warning notices of financial penalties. Could you fit three into that bed? Quite possibly.

    I can see you, TOH and the two lads spending a nice night in such a large bed. Well, not a nice night sleeping wise perhaps, but fun.

  4. Well it looks to me ass if you and your husband are enjoying the best of both worlds! The grandchildren in the day, and your own peace and quiet in the evening! perfect combination. I have found a similar policy in many US bed and breakfasts. No kids. Have a wonderful Christmas Diane!

  5. Looks a lovely quiet place.
    Amusing are those rules. Can understand stand that though. Looks roomy.

  6. It looks lovely and relaxing. I bet the owners went overboard with their cleaning routine after that last comment. ;-)

  7. Did you checked the bed and surroundings for traces of the other guests? What a way to write that down in a guestbook... :-(

  8. That is a lovely arrangement having your own space and yet being able to visit the grandchildren every day. Rules were interesting and I too laughed at the over share. We once stayed with friends who had a list of rules in their guest room, that raised a few eye brows too :). I was afraid to leave a finger print anywhere, lol!

  9. it is the out door spaces of this place that i would love... when we used to go on vacations we spent every minute outside and only slept in the room... TMI on the sign out sheet and i would love a place that lets no children in....and i can tell the mean business on no visitors... wow... they would have riots here if they posted that sign.

  16. I'm have such a chuckle at that notice, wondering how one would inadvertantly stay overnight. Still, it does look like a lovely, peaceful place to stay and I'm sure you made the most of it.

  17. Wow ! there I would stay too ! Beautiful. Will you follow the comments on the Visitors book and write the same ??

  18. Fabulous vacation -- perfection --- days with the kiddies, nights at a quiet, romantic getaway. Love the sign and guest book! I'm thinking about needing a lot of rest after days with two toddlers and thinking maybe we'd enjoy the quiet as much as the romantic aspect (but we're much older than you are ;>))

  19. Oh, I have really missed your blog and reading about all your adventures. But right now I'm just jealous! What a lovely getaway, and as you point out, obviously very romantic!! Here winter has barely begun and I'm already missing green grass, blue skies, and warm temperatures....I'd take 104F over snow any day of the week!!! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas, Diane.
