Just because the “Great Aussie Dream” of owning a home has forced you to give up your avocado on toast, doesn’t mean you can’t still holiday like you own it. After all, why buy when you can rent one of these pimped holiday homes?
For little more than the price of a regular hotel room – when you’re splitting costs – you can live large every day (while on holidays) in one of these 8 luxury holiday homes in Queensland.
Gooloolawa Luxury Lakehouse, Noosa
lux·u·ry (noun): The state of great comfort and extravagant living.
If you believe there’s nothing more luxurious than the sound of birdcall in the morning or the shimmer of the moonlight over the water by night, you’ll find more than great comfort in the Gooloowaa Luxury Lakehouse at Eumarella Shores Noosa Lake Retreat.
Set on the banks of Lake Weyba in Noosa, part of 50 acres of eco-conservation reserve, you and up to five others can check in and enjoy the Indigenous-themed styling and handcrafted adobe walls.
After days spent exploring in your canoe, drink in the serenity from your private lakeside deck. Located just eight metres from the lake’s edge, the floor-to-ceiling glass will make you feel as though you’re hovering over the water.
Perfect for: Those in need of a serious digital detox.
While you’re there: Keep the paddling up with an exploration day in the nearby Noosa Everglades, within the protected Noosa Biosphere.
