Apollo Bay, Victoria, Australia
Situated on 20 acres fronting a pristine beach, Seafarers Getaway enjoys a stunning setting on the famous Great Ocean Road along Australia's south coast. Behind us are the rolling green hills, forests and waterfalls of Great Otway National Park, and we are less than an hour from the 12 Apostles, a collection of dramatic rock stacks standing off the rugged coastline. On the premises, look for koalas in the gum trees, and enjoy hand-feeding the friendly alpacas in the field. Our luxury beach view studios, each with a full glass wall and private veranda, offer a magnificent 180° vista of the sea—keep an eye out for whales and dolphins swimming offshore. Decor in each apartment is sleek and ultra-modern, with nothing to distract from the panorama before you. Bathrooms have all-glass walk-in showers. Amenities include air conditioning, Wi-Fi, flat screen TV, kitchen with microwave, fridge and tea/coffee-making facilities. Out on the lawn, grab an Adirondack chair and relax with a book, or just drink in the fresh salt air. The town of Apollo Bay is nearby, with its farmers market and fishermen's co-op providing local bounty for fresh meals.
Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
Corinda is a genteel historic estate in the state capital, built in the 1870s and surrounded by one of the finest private gardens in Tasmania. It's now an inn run by the great-great grandson of the original owner, Alfred Crisp, who was a timber magnate, state politician and former mayor of Hobart. Julian Crisp and his wife, Chaxi, have retained the home's Victorian elegance while bringing it up to date with every modern convenience. Our group has the run of The House, the original residence, which is reserved entirely for Nat Hab's use during our stay. Six private en suite bedrooms are individually decorated with opulent period furnishings, antiques and original artworks. Each room is named after one of the many fascinating characters who have lived in the house or been closely associated with it, with their history noted in a specially bound handbook next to your bed.
Breakfast is an affair to remember at Corinda. Start your day with a lavish spread, prepared to order and served outdoors on the veranda on fine china. The menu features free range eggs, grilled bacon, fresh fruit salads and juices, and croissants and bread rolls from Jean Pascal, Hobart's best-known artisan bakery. T2 tea and Villino coffee, freshly roasted in Hobart, are also available in each bedroom. In the afternoon or evening, relax with a drink from the honor bar in the Drawing Room, offering Tasmanian whiskies, gin, vodka, Australian wines, craft beers and soft drinks.
Corinda is perfectly located for easy access to all Hobart has to offer, within walking distance of the city center and Royal Botanical Gardens. It also lies on the downtown edge of the Queen’s Domain, a 450-acre natural reserve just 10 minutes' walk from the central business district. Just down the hill in front of the house is Hobart’s historic waterfront, once a whaling center but now home to the famous Salamanca Market and the city’s hippest galleries, restaurants and bars. An excellent public gym in the nearby Aquatic Center is open to visitors.
