Read our review of The Nest...

The Nest could be the very definition of a classic Mornington Peninsula escape. It’s an elevated weatherboard beach house, fresh from a recent coat of paint and kitted out with spanking-new furnishings. The home is immaculately presented, from the three comfortable bedrooms to the contemporary lounge space and well-appointed kitchen. This is a place for the whole family - you can even bring your pooch.

A north-facing verandah at the front of The Nest makes a pretty perch to sip afternoon drinks and soak up the summer sun. Walk through to the elegant lounge and the heart of the home, the kitchen. A breakfast bench makes it easy to chat to your nominated chef as they prep a feast or you could make a beeline for the second sitting area to kick back with a magazine.

If you’re in the mood for entertaining (and let’s be honest, in this house who wouldn’t be?) the best way to set the scene is to push back the set of bi-fold doors and create the ultimate indoor-outdoor space. Children can play quoits and badminton on the lawn or explore the copse of native trees, leaving adults to relax and chat over a bottle of the Mornington Peninsula’s finest wine.

You’ll find The Nest tucked away in a quiet corner of Rye, and it’s this location that gives the property one of its most attractive qualities. From The Nest you’re walking distance to family-friendly beaches, and a quick drive will take you to the centre of Rye. Blairgowrie is a five-minute drive in the opposite direction.
