Did someone say “Road-trip?”

So these crisp early Spring mornings have you yanking the covers up and hitting the snooze button one too many times!? Us too! What better way to cure your “OMG I think my toes will freeze off” worries than these #wanderlust worthy Airbnb’s!? We’ve compiled some of our faves and OH BOY, are they gonna have you wishin’ you were right there. So why not plan a little ol’ road trip and venture your way into pure Airbnb bliss!

Screen Shot 2019-09-11 at 11.11.43 amIf the word yurt alone doesn’t entice your inner Boheme, perhaps the earthy tones of this straw-bale hut, synonymous with an exotic wilderness, will have you slipping on your kaftan and practicing your Eat Pray Love! This place is utter eco-magic. No need to sell up and leave your current life behind just yet… this little slice of heaven is within an easy commute from Melbourne, only an hours drive from the CBD. A weekend of soaking up the natural beauty of this 40 acre property will no doubt leave you feeling invigorated!

 


The Pool House

Mooloolaba, Queensland, Australia
Nightly rate: $195 (sleeps 2)
Worth gettin’ outta bed for: Complimentary use of bicycles

Screen Shot 2019-09-11 at 11.37.55 amDoes an über chic, New York style loft sound like your cuppa tea!? Well you can forget about the long-haul flight ‘cos this sassy abode will have you “ohhh-ing” and “ahhh-ing” over the carefully curated furnishings. Only a stone throws away, this stylish residence is located right on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. The owner has perfected the subtle art of balancing rich textures and bold feature colours, with minimal, calming undertones. Did we mention you have your own private pool!? Yep! This swanky pad is just what the doctor ordered… We’re planning our road trip right now!

 


The Little Black Shack

Screen Shot 2019-09-11 at 1.10.50 pmNestled away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney, this hidden gem oozes with rustic, authentic charm – just as you’d expect of a quaint fisherman’s cottage. Accessible via a 10 min ferry ride from Palm Beach, arriving here is just half the fun!

Roughing it” not your thing? Don’t let the title fool you, this little bayside beauty packs all the creature comforts and charisma of a chic city slicker. Coffee machine, Aesop products and linen bedding you say!? Ummm YES please!

Beautifully adorned with gallery worthy artwork and surround by a secluded pristine beach-side, I’m not sure we’d ever wanna leave!

Screen Shot 2019-09-12 at 3.37.12 pmALL ABOARD! Since opening it’s big ol’ tram doors earlier this year, this crafty little hideaway has been booked solid! Situated behind the super lush Lauriston Forest, it’s only an hours drive from Melbourne CBD, making it the perfect weekender.

With a HUGE “retro luxe” overhaul, they don’t call this 1920’s beauty the “Jean Claude Van Tram” for nothin’! Packed with all the creature comforts, Mr Van Tram has both an outdoor and indoor fireplace (with a cheeky split system for the trying months of winter and summer) AND a Tiki bar! Kitted out with vintage, op shop finds – the owner, Angela, describes her beloved tram as a no frills, rustic ramshackle that’s unique, fun and a great place to switch off and just RELAX. With incredible ratings and reviews, we can’t wait to jump on board (like what I did there?)! It’s on the list!


Artists Beach House

Wonga Beach, Queensland, Australia
Nightly rate: $350 per night (sleeps 10)
Worth gettin’ outta bed for: Snorkeling gear
Instagram: @artistshouses

Alllrighty, where do we even begin with this eclectic, bohemian PARADISE!? This place is a WHOLE lotta’ fun, yet incredibly laid back and child friendly. Umm and did I mention it’s also across the road from the beach and only a 30 min drive to Port Douglas? Earlier this year, Pheebs and Al packed up their families and lugged them on a plane to Cairns for a sneaky little easter break, and OH BOY did they have ALL of the fun! The hosts of this AH-mazing Airbnb are super friendly and with an eclectic styling aethetic that’s sure to make you wanna travel the world, this is one place that’s definitely worth the drive.

 


Tree-top Hideaway

Worth gettin’ outta bed for: Complimentary bottle of Prosecco

Screen Shot 2019-09-11 at 11.27.21 amIf you thought tree houses were restricted to the kiddos, think again! This architectural home sits perched among the tree tops of a private rain forest. Yes, a private.rainforest! We can’t think of a better place to pop open the bubbles and drink up to those beckoning views. And if it couldn’t get any better, this little treasure is only a 20 min drive from one of our all time fave spots – Byron Bay!


Great beach house in Somers

Somers, Victoria, Australia
Nightly rate: $250.00 (sleeps 6)

Screen Shot 2019-09-12 at 1.50.25 pmNow, does this adorable seaside casa look a little familiar? For those of you thinking “Hey yeah, where have I seen this little slice of peninsula paradise before?” Well it just so happens that we shot our “Love Shack” collection here and it’s fair to say we’d be back in a jiffy. Situated only a short drive from the very popular Sorrento on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, you’ll get best of both worlds – relaxing and secluded yet close to all the good pubs, cafes and of course, BEACH!


Earthship Ironbark BnB

Screen Shot 2019-09-12 at 2.00.31 pmYou know our LOVE for white washed walls is REAL over here at SxC, and we have found a lil’ somethin’ that will cure those Mediterranean cravings, whilst being eco-friendly and off grid at the same time! If you’re after some much needed time away from the 9 to 5 grind, then leave your technology at the front door and get comfy ‘cos this place will get you grounded and back in tune with nature in no time! A perfect place to unwind, the Earthship is only a 45 min drive from Adelaide CBD and comes complete with its own greenhouse (full of banana trees!).

 

With love,
