When it comes to cosy winter getaways, some amenities are simply a cut above the rest. If you’re looking to catch some R&R this winter, no doubt a steamy hot tub or luxurious spa situation to soak away the stress of city life is at the top of your list.
Pack a good winter read, your favourite bottle of red, some bath oil or bubble bath, and a fluffy bathrobe—here are some of the best Airbnbs in NSW with heavenly hot tubs, jacuzzis, and notable baths included.
If a rustic country escape in the beautiful Southern Highlands sounds like a dream to you, take a look at Wildernest. Described as a slow stay experience, it's off-grid, sustainable, and features a stringy bark hut and two tiny homes as accommodation options. T1 and T2 are the tiny homes, and both feature wood-fired outdoor baths (the eco-friendly version of a jacuzzi, if you will). Surrounded by nature—specifically the Wingello Forest and its many ancient gums—we can't think of a more beautiful spot to bathe. Book your stay here.
Near the Queensland border on the foothills of Mt Warning and the Border Ranges National Park, Stevie is a restored vintage van built for two overlooking a quiet valley on a 12-acre property. There's a deck with panoramic views, luxurious French linen, nearby bushwalking and cycling tracks, an outdoor barbeque, fire pit, and, of course, an outdoor hot tub with breathtaking views. Settle into a slower pace, and watch the sun set with a glass of wine as you soak away your troubles. Book your stay here.
This eco hut in Kangaroo Valley is one of our favourite Airbnb stays in NSW for a few reasons. Firstly, it was constructed using locally sourced sustainable and recycled materials, and the A-frame design (by architect Ben Gray) is breathtaking. Secondly, its surrounded by beautiful bushland but only 20 minutes drive from the best of the Southern Highlands like Kangaroo Valley village, Berry, Bowral, and Fitzroy Falls. Finally, it's kitted out with lush amenities like Hotel Cloud Collection bedding, a free-standing indoor bath tub, and a huge outdoor hot tub with views onto the surrounding bush. Book your stay here.
This cosy two-bedroom cottage in the Hawkesbury region has it all—especially when it comes to water-based activities. The property sits beside a freshwater lagoon, where you're able to swim, boat, fish, and stand-up paddleboard. There's also a delightful hot tub built into the deck, where you can relax and soak up the serenity of the lagoon and the charming natural surrounds. Plus, dogs are also welcome for a small extra fee. Book your stay here.
Muchacha Luxe Cabin
Of course, you can expect some top-tier tubs to exist in beautiful Byron. Created for design lovers, Muchacha Luxe Cabin is an open plan studio and perfect for a little romantic escape. Light and airy with a minimalist colour palette and a bit of Palm Springs aesthetic, here your hot tub is located in a cactus garden on the sunny adjoining terrace. Book your stay here.
