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.
Secluded Magical Rainforest Retreat
If you’re not already booking a weekend away after reading the name of this retreat, the fairy light-draped footbridge should be enough to win you over. Located in Main Arm, just outside the character-filled town of Mullumbimby, this beautiful cabin is secluded amongst the trees. If a relaxing stay in a rainforest retreat sounds like your ideal break from reality, check out the retreat here.
Forest Cabin Byron Bay Hinterland
Ever dreamt of running away to Byron Bay and living in a cabin with an outdoor bathtub enclosed by a sub-tropical rainforest? This cabin is truly for nature lovers and even better – there’s no phone reception. For a secluded retreat, cut off from the outside world, check out the Byron Bay forest cabin.
Treehouse Blue Mountains
This super quirky treehouse feels like the kind of place an A-lister would escape to. 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! For an unforgettable getaway, view the retreat here.
If you haven’t heard of Captain’s Rest, you must be trying hard to avoid it. This quaint little heritage cabin has quite the reputation as being one of the best relaxing retreats Tasmania has to offer. Set on the waterfront in Strahan, Captain’s Rest is a dreamy cabin, with spot on styling and a jetty on your doorstep. If you like the sound of walking in the forest, fishing and reading in front of the fire, check out Captain’s Rest.
Broken Head Bodhi Treehouse
If your wish is to reconnect with nature, Broken Head Bodhi Treehouse is the place to escape to. Nestled amongst 17 acres of rainforest and gardens, this three storey treehouse is just two minutes to the beach and seven minutes from Byron Bay. The outdoor bar area would be ideal of an evening with a couple of drinks, surrounded by the sounds of the local wildlife. To plan your trip, see the treehouse here.
