For a summer you won’t forget, pack your budgie smugglers and oversized towel and hightail it to one of these coastal hangouts.
1. Villa Vista – TAS
Cool and contemporary is the pledge of this luxurious waterfront villa. Floating above crystal clear, turquoise waters and endless white-sand beaches, surrounded by orange lichen-licked rocks, this is one view that will keep you mesmerised. Enjoy the relaxing sounds of songbirds as you sip on a glass of the local wine, while taking in the view from the glass-walled living room.
2. Boonooloo Beach House – QLD
Designed by architect Chris Vandyke, this absolute beachfront bungalow boasts high ceilings and an open-plan living space full of secret spaces where you can hide away. Relax in the hammock, float away in the infinity wet-edge pool or take the 20 paces to the ocean before freshening up in the marble bathrooms.
3. Hearns Beachside Villas – VIC
Perched on top of the Port Fairy sand dunes, with 360 degrees of panoramic paradise and the beach just inches away from your luxury private villa, this is the ultimate summer escape. As the sun breaks through the clouds, relax on your private ocean deck or explore the rock pools. You can even bring your pooch along.
4. Byron Retreat – NSW
With the sublime pool amongst a tropical garden, and the best beaches just a few minutes’ drive away, Byron Retreat has everything you need for the perfect summer holiday. Gather up the troops and fire up the barbie on the Mexican-influenced terrace and hop into holiday mode.
5. Island Beach Lodge – SA
Italian leather lounges, full entertainment systems, retractable walls… Oh, and did we mention the beach is at your doorstep? With the sound of crashing waves your only distraction for miles, it doesn’t get more exclusive than this. Bring your friends – the lodge can sleep up to 14 guests – and get ready for the summer holiday of your dreams.
6. Bali Hai Resort and Spa – WA
Experience the tropical wonder of Bali in Western Australia’s Broome.
