Treehouse In The Australian Bush

Swan Valley

Nestled high on a ridge overlooking the Swan Valley, this jaw-dropping treehouse is surrounded by stunning views from every angle—whether you're chilling in the jacuzzi, enjoying a wine on the huge lofty deck, cooking up a feast in the outdoor kitchen or just chilling by the pot-belly fireplace.

Maison Du Lac

Margaret River

Beachside stays are great, but the picturesque Maison Du Lac is inspiring us to book a lake house getaway next time we head down south. Situated right on a lake's edge in Margaret River, the stunning new three bedroom home is just 400m from all the action in town but feels a million miles away thanks to the lush forest surrounding the property. Sparkling waterfront views, luxe interiors, a toasty wood fire and a huge bathtub to soak in at the end of the day—bring on all the tranquillity. Book here.

Treetops 

Denmark

Live out your childhood dreams and escape to this cute as heck a-frame timber treehouse in Denmark. Tucked between tall karri trees, the private two-story dwelling looks like it's been plucked right out of a fairytale and is the perfect spot for a cosy autumn getaway. Start your day with a cuppa on the balcony looking out over Wilson Inlet and end it by the potbelly fire with your fluffiest socks, board games and red wine. Heaven. Book here.

River Blue

Margaret River

We've said it before and we'll say it again... We. Love. Outdoor. Baths. This one, in particular, feels super special thanks to the insane views of rolling hills and the picturesque river. But beyond providing a beaut bath moment, River Blue also scores bonus points for its contemporary interiors—think polished concrete floor and bespoke timber cabinetry—and sustainable straw bale construction. It's basically like stepping into a cool design magazine for a weekend. Book here.
