We came across this property while driving down the Mornington Peninsula from Melbourne. We took a 2-bedroom unit that was quite spacious. The room was also immaculately clean. The sheets were freshly pressed and all of the amenities were there. The on-site manager was very nice and helpful. Rye is a lovely little town with a nice variety of shops...

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment (actually a 2-bedroom with one locked room) on the upper level. It was very spacious and well-furnished, with a comfortable king bed (2 singles joined), lots of storage in both the bedroom and the kitchen, full kitchen facilities and a table and crockery/cutlery for 4 and leather couches in the lounge area. It...

Stayed 2 nights here - our room wasn't very clean, there was hair in the bathroom and in our beds..a total put off! It should have be cleaned better because this is a total put off to be seeing hair laying everywhere! Not sure to weather to stay here again.

Clean and very comfortable. We had a great night sleep. Very close to shops and beach and very friendly service. Negatives were its a little dated, shower could use a refurb and the blinds next to the front door allow people from outside to look in. We would come back just for the service and comfort alone but it would...

Stayed here for a week around Anzac Weekend 2015 and loved it. The accommodation was fairly full for the majority of our stay and we could not hear any noise from the other travellers. It is situated very close to some great restaurants, would recommend the Italian restaurant on the corner (unfortunately cant recall the name) and a great German...

Moonlight Bay Resort is in the perfect location. It is literally only a minutes walk from the Rye Pier, restaurants, RSL and Rye Hotel. You can walk everywhere. And the staff are extremely helpful. The rooms aren't big but neither are they too small. We had a one bedroom apartment and it was just the right size for two people....

We stayed at Moonlight Bay Resort as a last minute booking and found the experience to be enjoyable enough. There is a nice pool and each room has a free car spot. The interior was okay, not as nice as some of the pictures posted on here though. It was very plain. A lot of reviewers have stated that they...

We pulled into town after an unsuccessful attempt to get into the Peninsula Hot Spa. Apparently we had to book ahead. We were advised to return first thing in the morning on the off-chance that someone booked into the early group didn't show up. Not very satisfactory, but we were really looking forward to it. Turned up at the counter...

Not sure about the resort title, but this is nevertheless a great spot right in the centre of Rye. It is away from the main street but within a very short walk. The room was large and very well appointed. The kitchenette was excellent with all the right utensils and gear

Don't let the motel branded exterior fool you, it sure fooled us! My partner and I had our doubts after reading bad reviews online and finding it out it was motel not a 'resort'. But with a fully equipped kitchen, open plan living area, incredibly cosy bed and the pool and spa area and the edge of your feet, it...
