Finding gems on Airbnb can sometimes be a job. But if you’re looking for a real stay in a place where there are no hotels in every corner, it’s a savior. And Australia is home to some of Airbnb’s best list. From beachside villas to vast forest cottages. Below are some of our favorites.
Magnolia Palace in Byron Bay, New South Wales
That’s exactly what the Magnolia Palace (pictured above) is on over 2.5 acres just outside the town. A palace on the north coast of New South Wales. With a capacity of 14 people and multiple living zones and pools, this house is reminiscent of luxury hotels in India and Sri Lanka. With a stunning palette of nature filled with bursts of green, this is one off-grid stay you’ll want to return to. Please make a reservation here.
Ocean House, Lone, Victoria
Designed by architect Rob Mills, this luxurious location on Lone’s coastline makes Airbnb one of Victoria’s finest hotels. Modern architecture blends with a subtle interior touch and the scenery is killer. Please make a reservation from here.
Kunanyi House, Fern Tree, TAS
This architecturally stunning house on Mount Wellington is quiet, luxurious and modern. Staying at Kunani House, Tasmania’s most exquisite natural wonder, where you can relax and enjoy, means serious and complete relaxation. Please make a reservation from here.
Camel Beach House, Venus Bay, SA
Full of characters and with a view to kill, the Camel Beach House on the Yale Peninsula is one of the rare gems that is millions of miles away from work, transportation and to-do lists. Inspired by a simple fisherman’s hut, this luxurious hotel goes far beyond the basics. Please make a reservation from here.
Moroccan hideout, Bilgola Plateau, New South Wales
With a different design, this Moroccan hideaway on Sydney’s Northern Beach is one of Airbnb’s most quirky discoveries and the most luxurious way to go. Fascinating and rustic, this large house boasts views of bushes and Pitowater and is a great place to relax. Given that it’s only an hour’s drive from the city, a Friday night sunset drink becomes a reality. Please make a reservation here.
The horizon of Hamilton Island, Queensland
With views of both the marina and the sea, this spacious luxury home does everything. Modern facilities and luxurious finishes give this 6-bedroom residence a contemporary feel, and its waterfront location makes it an ideal base for exploring Hamilton Island. Please make a reservation from here.
Byron Beachfront, Byron Bay, New South Wales
Not many homes boast access to Byron Bay’s beachfront, but this exclusive Airbnb is literally just steps away from the water. The interior is fresh and contemporary, but thanks to the vast deck and millions of dollars of views, you don’t have to leave your deck chairs. Please make a reservation here.
Shoal Bay Salt in Shoal Bay, New South Wales
Overlooking the tranquil and picturesque Shoal Bay, this large beachside escape has everything you need for a villa. From chic coastal designs (think white walls and rattan) to places on the water, Salt’s laid-back attitude is suitable for those who want to relax. Please make a reservation from here.
JR Eco Hat in Kimo Estate, Nangus, New South Wales
If staying in a small house overlooking the stunning Murrambidgee Flat seems like your escape idea, you don’t have to look anymore. This luxurious eco-hut is all trimmed and the A-frame design is packed with architectural punches. Please make a reservation here.
Alkira Resort House Andrain Forest Retreat, Great Barrier Reef, Queensland
With its own private beach, this luxurious Airbnb is futuristic and comfortable. Designed by architect Charles Wright, this 6-bedroom dwelling is of elegance. And for those who choose, helicopter arrival is more than possible. Please make a reservation here.
Eagle View Park, Foxground, New South Wales
Located between the Southern Highlands and the South Coast, Foxground’s Eagle View Park has everything from an infinity pool, a cozy fire pit, stunning views, and endless spots to enjoy the surroundings. Get rid of weekends (or more) and slip the city’s worries onto the horizon. Please make a reservation here.
