We had an amazing stay at Anchor Beachfront house! Right on the beach with amazing views overlooking the ocean. You can enjoy the view from the relaxing front porch, sometimes glistening sparkling sunshine, dolphins, and at other times windsurfers on the windy days. The living room dining room and kitchen make the most of the view with the expansive living area. Very well stocked kitchen to prepare meals. Great place for when a family gets together, reunion or just a quiet retreat. An altogether amazing experience! We will be back!

Anchor Beachfront Retreat – 28 December 2022

This home is exactly as described. It is stunning and everything is considered, including the butler’s pantry! The styling, finishes and overall experience are immaculate and create a very relaxed feel as soon as you walk in the front door. Perfect for a girls getaway or a large family vacation. Loved every detail about the place – the spacious upstairs balcony with beautiful views, the inviting pool, the additional bathrooms, and the open space living / lounge area are real standout features to this home. Location was also amazing, a short stroll to the beach and cafes in Rye.


Observation Villa Rye – 20 February 2023

Outstanding, spacious & beautifully furnished house with excellent facilities including tennis court, heated pool and spa. Amazing views of the bay and the city lights at night. Received a lovely hamper and handwritten note from the owners. Was our third visit and we will be back. Holiday Shacks were as always super helpful and efficient to deal with. I wouldn’t use anyone else for a Peninsula stay!

We absolutely adored our stay at 2 Marma Retreat. From the amazing pool, to the bbq and outdoor eatery and a house packed with all you need, we could not have asked for more for our family holiday. It’s in the perfect location, making trips to local wineries and restaurants a breeze . We will be back and highly recommend for a relaxing and luxurious stay in Red Hill.
