In need of a staycation
Is there anything better than a little weekend getaway to lift the vibe? While restrictions may have us staying close to home right now with international travel off the tables whats better than a little local vacay to look forward to. Now as a NSW resident this is for my locals but for those out of area these little hotspot stays are a must for when we are are back to when flight travel is a thing again. Hell yes to those days coming back.
Five of the best go to accommodation options for your next staycay are right here, look no further.
1. Lilypad Palm Beach on Sydney's Northern Beaches.
This is one for leaving the kiddies with Nanna, the ultimate Lux romantic getaway options,1-2 nights stays available. Chef prepared meals, wine cellar, open fire place, paddle boards and fishing rods and not only does it float this little vessel is literally a house boat and can be driven by you ,yes no boat license required to any of the amazing little beaches that surround it. Uh yes please..
2. The Jetty House, Clareville
This place is the perfect weekend getaway with the extended family or friends and the kids. Beautiful styled through the entire home has 5 generous sized bedroom, a pool and and incredible in-home threatre and playroom that will literally keep your kids amused for hours, but my favourite part of this place would have to be the private beach, it sits on and the awesome boat-shed jetty fully decked out with everything you need for a coastal weekend, Kayaks, paddles boards, beach carts, beach people towels and a beach bags you literally need to bring nothing but yourself everything is here for you already. Fish off the end of the jetty or watch the kids bombing off the end of the wharf while you enjoy a glass of vino and the sun set. Yes please!
3. Wynola at Boomerang Beach
Sleeping up to nine guests, this is a great place to holiday with a group of family and friends. Everyone will gravitate to the breezy verandah when the weather’s fair. Cook up a feast, go for a surf and then wash off in the outdoor heated shower. Gather at sunset with a glass of wine by the firepit under a string of lights. uniquestaysauz.com.au
If your looking for something with the best of both worlds not to far from the beach but with the rural feel Stay in one of 5 very private luxury tents situated on a family cattle property only minutes to Byron. They all have King beds and luxurious ensuite bathrooms. The eco style accommodation is off grid solar powered and offers a real connected to nature vibe. Definitely an experience to be had.
5. Salt at Shoal Bay
Spend your weekend barefoot with salt in your hair and family and friends by your side. Days are punctuated by swims, beach walks, barbecues and sundowners. The enormous windows capture the sunrise, while skylights allow for star-gazing while lying in bed. Salt at Shoal Bay is the epitome of coastal luxe. It’s divided into two self-contained levels (each sleeping 11) plus there’s a third freestanding cottage which sleeps six. This epic piece of paradise is the bees knees for getting the whole crew together to share in a weekend of family and friendship. http://www.saltatshoalbay.com.au
