We recently played a game of this of that with our Instagram community and discovered that 62% of you prefer airbnbs to hotels when travelling. So without further adieu, here's 3 Australian airbnbs you must visit when Australia opens up again and why we love them.
Captains Rest, Strahan, TAS
Sitting at around $530 a night, this heritage-listed, secluded waterfront cottage captures the true essence of country design. Once a dilapidated shack no one wanted, now one of the most in-demand airbnbs in Australia. Captains Rest strikes the perfect balance between boat house meets farm house design without falling into the trap of looking gimmicky. The cottage features a real life Nectre wood stove, luxe, moody textiles for ultimate comfort and antique windows overlooking an old jetty on still water. Pour yourself a glass of red wine, put your feet up with a good book and be prepared to relax, unwind and enjoy.
Salt at Shoal Bay
Salt at Shoal Bay is a Modern Australian beach house, providing coastal luxe accommodation to all. Located on the beachfront in Shoal Bay, Port Stephens, this waterfront masterpiece boasts 180 degree views of the sea.
