It doesn’t get much better than this floating villa in New South Wales, just north of Sydney, Australia. Two guests can enjoy the incredibly luxurious accommodations that’s fit for a romantic weekend, thanks to a king-size bed fitted with fine linens and plush bedding (plus, tasteful greenery and sun-filled windows). The private bathroom in the space comes with a spacious shower outfitted with products from Australian luxury brand Aesop. 

And the bright living area overlooks the see, with a cozy couch, fireplace, TV, lovely decor and an airy kitchenette with an oven, stove, microwave, fridge, and any utensils or plates you’d need during your stay—like wineglasses. Speaking of which, guests can receive a tasting plate and champagne upon arrival as well as complimentary dinner and breakfast, an onboard wine cellar, a private self-drive tender 24-hour concierge service and use of stand-up paddleboards and fishing gear. Guests can also choose to cook themselves, as there’s an outdoor private BBQ on the deck, where glampers can relax in the tables and chairs. 

While you might think you’d be off the grid on the water like this, you’ll still have Wi-Fi (and complimentary Netflix and HBO) in this spot, so you can choose how much you want to disconnect. Staying at this villa can be the kind of vacation you want it to be, as the hosts have obviously put TLC into preparing for any kind of guests. Some of the opportunities include treating yourself to an on-board massage, taking a seaplane on local adventures, exploring the nearby Portuguese Beach by boat, surfing at local spots, or browsing the villa’s iPad for tips on what to do and where to eat. 

Sydney is just an hour away by car, making this the ideal trip for anyone visiting the city or anyone already living there. Check out dates and prices on Glamping Hub.
