Darling Harbour Getaway 2 Bedroom ,amazing views

Sydney apartment

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 4

“Awesome !!!” This has to be one of the best apartments in Sydney, The view is amazing, the location excellent, the premium quality of the apartment and little extras provided made our stay truly 5 star. The Sydney skyline views from the apartment are truly breathtaking, we also managed to watch the amazing fireworks from the balcony on the Saturday night. The location is central to everything. Darling harbour is a lovely place to hang out, explore, and has plenty to do, its within walking distance of the City Centre, Harbour Bridge & opera house, and with many lovely restaurants on the doorstep its the perfect place to stay. Would love to return if we get to visit Sydney again.

Green Leaves Cabin A-Frame

Denmark house

2 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 5

“The perfect weekend getaway.” We love this place. It's in the perfect spot, surrounded by tall trees and very friendly birds who always love a feed. The a-Frame cottage is beautiful and very cosy. I love nothing more than to sit in front of the roaring fire with a glass of local wine watching the birds feed on the deck. The place is fitted out with everything you need for weekend or even a week away in one of the most beautiful spots in the country. It's clean, it's very well presented and it's very reasonably priced. We love coming here in the winter and I'm looking forward to visiting in the summer too.

GG's By The River - Luxury acc Eurobin near Bright

Eurobin cottage

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 4

“Indulgent stay in Eurobin (near Bright)” This is the second time we have stayed at GG's, both times around ANZAC day and we will soon be booking again for next year. Jennie and Steve are wonderful hosts and have created a very nice place here. We have stayed with another couple (none of us brought any kids but we can see the place caters well for them too). It has two VERY large size bedrooms each with own en-suites and the beds and linen are beautiful. The standard of everything at GG's is really very high. Jennie prepares a beautiful hamper and home made cakes or muffins which is a lovely surprise when you get there..fridge stocked with fresh goodies and there is nothing in the kitchen that is missing if you need it. As it was cool both times when we went the lovely wood heater was well used and is just great...well stocked wood pile. Wonderful covered deck area outside. Gardens are just lovely for a walk (even in the rain). Down alongside the river with horses, alpacas and chooks. We really love the place and can't wait for another stay there. It's not far out of Bright so don't be put off by that at all. Thanks Jennie and Steve for creating such a great place. You've done a wonderful job. Hope to see you again next year.

The Jacaranda Villa, Sleeps 14, Pool & Spa

Coffs Harbour villa

5 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 14

“We'll definitely be back Jacaranda Villa!” The Jacaranda Villa is really wonderful. We came here with with a big group of family and friends and it was just perfect for us. The main thing that attracted me to it as I trawled for hours over the internet for a suitable holiday house (groan) was the fresh clean and modern feel to the place, coupled with the different living spaces that could accommodate our various groups. The teenagers could hang out together, whilst the younger ones had their playspace elsewhere and, of course, the adults had space to relax and play too. The kitchen was great for our foodie group, and we could sit around and chat with that night's nominated cooks as they slaved for us! The lovely balcony looked out over the pool area and lush gardens. The pool, playground and games room kept the kids entertained. Oh and there was an absolutely beautiful wild lagoon, the kids loved exploring it on the canoes provided, actually I spent an afternoon on one while the kids were busy elsewhere, with my book, just drifting and reading, the tranquility of that was just what the doctor ordered! We walked down to the nearby beach most days to build sandcastles and splash around. It was lovely there, not too crowded like a lot of tourist spots. The villa is in a quiet location, it's huge and beautifully decorated. The photos don't even show all the rooms/areas in the villa. The owner was great (sorry his name has slipped my mind), he was really friendly and informative. We didn't have any problems but if we did then we wouldn't have had any hesitation in calling or emailing him. I would definitely recommend it, usually I've got something negative to say about a place but really I can't think of one. Well, that must say a lot. See you next year Jacaranda Villa! oh, and you've got to visit the daggy old Big Banana for a banana split and a play - yum! That brought back childhood memories, it's changed so much since I was a kid.

About Australia

Wild and wonderful Australia is world famous for beautiful beaches, stunning coral reefs, a vast outback, and endless deserts. The only country that is also a continent, Australia is a massive place of diverse landscapes and ecosystems. Most famously, Australia is the original home of kangaroos, wallabies, and koala bears. It is also the site of some of the world's largest reefs, tallest waterfalls, and most diverse marine life, including dolphins, nurse sharks, and jelly fish.

For adventure, Australia is a great choice. Here, you can swim with tropical fish along the western shore in Ningaloo, rent a jeep for an off-road adventure in the bush, or set sail off the coast of Victoria. If you're looking for more laid-back activities, you can enjoy Australia by simply soaking up the rays of the Southern hemisphere on one of the country's spectacular beaches.

While the wildlife in Australia is the country's greatest attraction, the cultural side of Australia is definitely worth exploring too. As many visitors will tell you, most Australian cities are modern, cool, and congenial, with great food, a buzzing nightlife, and friendly people. In fact, Australia is famous for the goodwill of its people and their happy greeting, "G'day!"

Here are a few of the must-see attractions and destinations of Australia:

  • The Great Barrier Reef: The world's largest reef is located just off the Queensland Coast and is a paradise for snorkeling, scuba diving, and sailing.
  • Sydney: Australia's biggest city is upbeat, cosmopolitan, and cultured, with several wonderful beaches near town and the world's most famous harbor view.
  • Kakadu National Park: This stunning wilderness is Australia's largest national park and home to the largest concentration of Aboriginal rock art in the country.
  • Melbourne: The most culturally vibrant city in Australia, Melbourne boasts great galleries and museums.
  • Flinders Ranges: Explore the ancient mountain ranges of Southern Australia, a wonderful place to draw inspiration from the colors of the outback.
  • Kata Tjuta: Perhaps the most recognizable landmark in Australia, the massive monolith of Uluru, also known as Ayer's Rock, is located in the middle of a phenomenal national park.

No matter how you choose to spend your vacation in Australia, there is an ideal vacation rental for you and your family or friends. If you plan to spend a few days in Sydney or Melbourne, consider a luxury apartment rental or condo in the center of town. Those who want to enjoy a bit more surf and sand can seek out a beach house or oceanfront villa near the coast. You can also find a cabin rental near Australia's desert parks and mountain ranges, giving you access to the country's great wilderness.

Scarlett's by Salamanca
Bright modern apartment in an excellent location

The Battery Point location, a 5 minute walk from the Salamanca Markets and a few minutes from most of the attractions of downtown Hobart, is excellent. The apartment is nicely furnished and well provisioned. The lack of air conditioning and the fact that there is only one functioning window with a screen, would be problematic in hot weather.see more
Flinders Luxury Penthouse
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We stayed at this apt for 5 nights- and inquired to stay longer! This is the penthouse apt on the 26th floor of a hotel/residential building, which is great bc a 24 hr concierge/front desk/security team is always available for you at the front desk, while having the independence of your own apt. The penthouse is spotlessly clean and accommodating with all the amenities. We loved the spacious terrace, and it's proximity to the casino, free tram, grocery store...and especially to the 2 best breakfasts spots in all of Melbourne that we experienced- Grain Restaurant and Hardware Society!! Thank you to our hostess, Liliana, for her responsiveness and kindness to us!see more

Licorice cottage was a superb setting to just get away from it all.
