An Airbnb cabin with views across a green valley, and a plunge pool on the deck.

When it comes to finding the perfect Airbnb escape, some amenities are simply a cut above the rest. Maybe it's a cosy fireplace in the wintertime, super-fast wifi for a working holiday, an outdoor tub for max relaxation, or a fully-equipped kitchen for cooking up a storm. But if we had to pick just one homestay luxury above all others, it'd have to be Airbnb properties with lush pools. 

Here, we've done the research for you, and found the most incredible Airbnbs in NSW complete with private pools. Infinity pool with a view of the ocean? Yep. Luxe bush retreat with a huge heated pool? Yes. Cabin in the mountains with a plunge pool on the deck? Absolutely. 

Here are the best Airbnbs in NSW with pools. 

ARUNA Estate Luxury Farm Villa


This one basically ticks every box: a tiny home, a farm stay with sheep and a four-acre regenerative garden, set amongst the native bushland, and an epic swimming pool for chilling out on hot days. You'll find this one about 90 minutes from Sydney, with bonus tennis court for working up a sweat, access to hiking and biking trails, and a gorgeous hamper of local goodies provided. Book your stay here.

Ocean Farm


Let's kick this list off with a bang, shall we? Set on the picturesque rolling green cliffs of Gerringong, about an hour south of Sydney, Ocean Farm is an architectural beauty unlike any other. With four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a formal dining area, and a games room—this coastal villa is perfect for group trips. And while the property does have beach access, we suspect you and the crew will be content with a sunrise dip in Ocean Farm's stunning infinity pool, peering out across the waves below. Book your stay here

The Hilltop Cabin

Blue Mountains

Now for something a little more romantic. The Hilltop Cabin is located at the highest point in the Kanimbla Valley, with sweeping views of the surrounding valley and the Blue Mountains escarpment. Made for couples, you and your significant other can enjoy bushwalks complete with local wildlife like roos and echidnas, cosy nights by the fire, and a free-standing stone bath positioned beneath a canopy of fairy lights. Last but not least, there's a plunge pool on the deck—where you can soak up the views and the country air. Book your stay here

The Black Chapel


This stunning Moroccan-inspired pool is nestled out the back of a unique home on a half-acre in the north of Wollongong. The contemporary fit-out of the spacious beach home includes sprawling verandahs, an open fire for cool evenings, a Finnish sauna, and THAT epic pool, but you're also a five-minute walk from the beach if its a dip in salty water you're after. Book your stay here.

Cactus Rose Villa

Byron Bay

For Tulum vibes in the heart of Byron, you can't go past Cactus Rose. This breezy holiday villa for two is set above the Spell and the Gypsy store and features a luxurious covered all-weather outdoor space, a dreamy loft-style bedroom, and—best part—a private in-ground pool complete with sun loungers. Book your stay here

Palm Pavilion

Church Point

Just 45 minutes from the city, this three-bedroom architectural stunner on the edge of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park is the ultimate back-to-nature getaway. Expect sweeping rainforest views and luxe amenities, plus two breezy decks, a concrete plunge pool for hot days, and even a wood-fired pizza oven for feeding the crew. Book your stay here.

Bask & Stow Salt Suite

Byron Bay

Also in Byron, but with Palm Springs as its muse, the Salt Suite at Bask & Stow was designed by award-winning architect Harley Graham. It's super close to Wategos, Arakwal National Park, and the Byron town centre, and features a king-size bed and soul-soothing monsoon shower. Oh, and you'll have access to the property's plunge pool and poolside relaxation space. Dreamy. Book your stay here

The Vue


Up on the Central Coast, The Vue is a secluded two-bedroom studio, complete with an enormous 15-metre mineral lap pool and a panoramic view across Avoca Bay. You and your pals can live your best indoor-outdoor life, with large sliding doors, a roomy terrace, and BBQ facilities. Keen to get pampered? Enquire with your host for in-room massage and beauty treatments. Book here

The Lodge

Mt Kanimbla

Gather seven of your besties and plan a getaway to this luxe countryside experience in the Kanimbla Valley. As well as admiring the visiting wildlife and scenery, you'll love the private mineral plunge pool on the deck, two massive living areas (including a games room for some red wine-fuelled competition), and outdoor fire pit for cosy stargazing once the sun sets. Book your stay here.

Waterfront Boathouse

Palm Beach

With room for six guests, this dreamy waterfront home in Palm Beach is a great option for a weekend getaway out of the CBD. You'll love spreading out in the two huge living areas, paddling on Pittwater on the provided kayaks and SUPs, and taking a dip in the gorgeous swimming pool that feels like it blends in with the coastline. Book your stay here.
