Really cosy weekend

  • 4 of 5

We loved the wishing well. Had everything we needed and gave us a really cosy place for the winter weekend. The collection of movies was a great bonus and beds were very comfy. The location is also perfect! We were a little dissapointed that the spa was empty however as it meant we couldn't use it in our stay

Owner's Response: Hi Isabelle Thank you for you kind words and we are glad that you had a lovely weekend! Unfortunately, as per our description and terms and conditions, the spa is only available for the summer months. We would be happy however to welcome you back again in summer with a 5% loyalty discount with mention of this post in recognition of this. Kind regards James

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect and the house itself is cosy and modern. The outdoor entertaining area is nestled between gorgeous trees and a spa to enjoy after a big day at the beach.

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Wishing Well which ticked all the boxes for a long weekend. As two adult couples, the accommodation was good (two queen sized beds), and was laid out in such a way that we were able to have both quiet and privacy. We thought that the home was welcoming and comfortable, and particularly liked that we didn't need to go out and buy things like salt and pepper etc. The house is in short driving distance of beaches, shops and wineries, and after a day out in the fresh air, coming home to a relaxing spa on the deck was perfect. The owners have a large collection of DVDs and some very entertaining board games! The open fireplace looks great for a winter's evening, so this house would work as a getaway location at any time of the year. We just wish we didn't have to come home.

We had an amazing stay. So close to Rye's wonderful foreshore and a great base to explore the penninsula. Facilities were fantastic and loved dinner on the deck with a spa afterwards. Would love to come back.
