Travel fantasy.

We have less than 30 days until we visit the gorgeous Colorado mountains for a little Spring skiing. Knowing a wonderful trip is on the horizon does not, however, always sate my internal travel bug {so spoiled, I know}! And truth be told, skiing is less a vacation and more of an extended workout. Don't get me wrong: I'm certainly not complaining about my posh ski vacation on the horizon {first world problem}. Today my mind just needed to wander far, far away from here. 

And look where it landed: Australia.

Nothing could be more relaxing than a secluded, waterfront getaway to a surreal tree house. The private vacation home situated on the Bouddi Peninsula, just north of Sydney, is actually called The Pretty House, because it sits perched atop Pretty Beach {truly - I  couldn’t make this up if I wanted}.

The exclusive seven-acre property encompasses three one-bedroom pavilions that surround the main home. The pavilions are rented out to guests who are lavished with an in-house chef, treetop views of the sparkling Brisbane waters, private decks for sunbathing, a wine cellar, heated pool, and a stunning 38 foot yacht to explore the waters. 
Stop it.  
No, seriously, a 38' yacht.
At your disposal. And did I mention a chef?!
Sorry, that's just my inner dialogue. Sometimes I cannot for the life of me turn it off. 

The pool is sunken below a surrounding teak terrace, which has openings for tree trunks to pass through to avoid disrupting their natural trajectory.

You had me at teak terrace.  Gorgeous!

The interiors are modern and saturated in warm, earthy color tones. It’s as if an old world traveler visited once and left his 1930s travel trunks, hand crafted tables, and fine Belgium linens behind. 

Dear old world traveler, please feel free to visit me stateside. 


Do not click through and check the rates.


This is a travel fantasy.


And in travel fantasies we can travel half way across the world {without the children} and spend oodles of money to lounge right here.


Or here.


Or enjoy a little night cap right here.


What are you dreaming about today?
