Relaxed beachfront luxury | Places

OK, so I know we are days away from the beginning of winter and the idea of spending time in the sun and ocean seems miles away... but maybe not. 

What can I say? I'm a sucker for anything in blue! 

The Halcyon House located on Cabarita Beach, Northern NSW is a dream paradise isn't it? Only 15 mins south from the Gold Coast airport, this is surely one of Australia's best kept secrets.  The interior's ethnic aesthetic combining colour, pattern and texture really invites you in and makes you feel warm and welcomed. Not to mention that pool...This hotel's beautiful interior was designed by designer, Anna Spiro in her true signature style. I have previously spoken about Anna's authentic work in our Book/Club, here

This boutique hotel is all about character, colour and charm. Attention to detail has been considered throughout the layout and comfort of the room, offering plenty of natural light, king size bed, quality finishes, particularly in the bathroom and ample space to unwind, with many rooms having their own private courtyard and others with a view. 

I particularly love the character-filled Paper Daisy Restaurant with its gallery wall of art, plates and other collections? Those bistro style chairs create a laid-back mood to dining, where you can feel comfortable to float between your room, the pool and restaurant. 

This may be the escape we all need this winter... 

Have a great weekend!
