There are some things in life that just make sense—and a restorative country getaway at a property with wide open skies and an outdoor bath is one of them. 

If escaping the chaos of city life is high on your agenda, you’re going to want to soak up the goodness of these thoughtfully designed Airbnbs with an outdoor bath. At Urban List, we believe nothing spells relaxation quite like watching the sunset and the stars in a steamy tub of soapy bubbles with a glass of wine in hand. Here are the best Airbnbs in NSW with an outdoor bath.

New: Rest At Boxgrove

Just outside Bathurst and about 2.5 hours out of Sydney, Rest at Boxgrove is the perfect country escape. Here, six eco-friendly cabins and one three-bedroom cottage have private views across rolling green paddocks—and each property features multiple bathing options. 

Inside, a luxurious stone bath with a jaw-dropping window view of the sunset and grazing black Angus cows. Outside, twin outdoor tubs for you to saddle up with your significant other, some bubble bath, and a glass or two of wine. Cabins also feature fire pits and a BBQ, and you're a short drive away from Bathurst's up-and-coming breweries, bars, and vineyards.
