Five Airbnb retreats for the ultimate relaxing getaway

October 18, 2020

Sometimes you just need a log cabin retreat in a secluded, mountainous valley to take a break from the daily grind and give your overworked mind the rest it deserves. Think lazy mornings reading in the sun, evening campfires and a whole lot of doing nothing.

So if you’re down for less meetings, more retreating, here are five Airbnb retreats that are good for the soul.

It’s a treehouse on steroids, propped up high amongst the treetops with a stunning view of Bowen’s Creek Gorge and the Blue Mountains rainforest. Treehouse Blue Mountains certainly isn’t your average backyard treehouse project, it is beautifully constructed with natural timber and 360° windows to take in the surroundings – even from the spa!
