Featured Airbnb – Arrabella Tiny House, Kangaroo Valley

A Tiny House, With A Glasshouse Bathtub – Kangaroo Valley, NSW

Not only are tiny houses one of the most Grammable stays you could think of, but they’re also super cosy and romantic. This one is particularly fine. Think an outdoor fire pit for roasting marshies and a bathtub enclosed in its very own glass cube to help you connect with the natural surroundings (and your significant other). We’d summarise this place in one word: lush.

Relax Waterside At This Fisherman’s Cottage – Great Mackarel Beach, NSW

That water has us excited already. Pittwater’s Mackerel Beach is home to this original timber and sandstone Fisherman’s cottage that’s been lovingly restored on a secluded beach, surrounded by bush hideaway. Basically, it’s a couple’s retreat.

Stay In A Self-Contained Luxury Cottage In The Heart of Mudgee – Eurunderee, NSW

Just five minutes from the town centre, you’ll find Strikes 1 and 2, which are two stand-alone eco-friendly, architecturally designed self-contained luxury cottages. It’s worth clicking through just to see the views.

Sip Sundowners On A 1,000 Acre Farm Estate – Kangaroo Valley, NSW

How’s the serenity? Top notch, we’d say.

What’s more, the interiors can’t be faulted, the fire pit is begging for your marshmallows and there’s no shortage of walks on the property – including one to a private rockpool.

Play out your farmhouse fantasies in the heart of a wine region – Mudgee, NSW

Tell us the idea of staying on your own private ranch doesn’t make things tingle. With nightly snuggles around the firepit, days spent skinny-dipping in the freshwater creek, and all the wineries you could possibly ever need right on your doorstep, this is a vacay we promise you won’t ever forget. Don’t get us started on the interior styling *drool*.

Bathe Under The Stars, Surrounded By Greenery – Bryon Bay, NSW

Grainy wood walls, leafy garden patio and alfresco soaking tub make up this gorgeous Byron Bay suite. I mean, would you just look at that bath? Plus, it’s just a few streets back from Byron Bay’s best beaches.

A Romantic Retreat With An Infinity Pool – Foxground, NSW

Dedicated to couples only, this stunning rural retreat overlooks rolling green pastures and magnificent ocean views (you’re getting the best of both worlds here). Plus, can we just take a long look at that pool and sunset combo? Heaven.

Stay In Eco-Friendly Country Huts – Gundagai, NSW

It’s no secret that Kimo Estate is one of our favourite places to honeymoon at (oh, and wed at too). You’ll find their pretty little huts nestled on a hill, featuring 360-degree views of the Murrumbidgee river flats. Our favourite part? You’re totally off-grid, and using solar power to provide light and water and you have total, utter privacy.
