As much as we all yearn to escape from time to time, the reality is sometimes you can’t venture too far in one weekend. At this impeccably designed and styled A-frame, nudged right up against Noosa National Park, you can embrace the freedom of a cabin in the woods while being a five-minute drive from Noosa. Snuggle into the leather lounge, gaze out over the fern forest and keep your eyes peeled for Karl the koala in the treetops. This Canadian-style chalet meets modernist design abode is a place to sleep bathed in moonlight in the loft bedroom and wake to views over the treetops and birdsong. High-quality, handcrafted and vintage furniture and fittings are found throughout with vintage vases, mugs and even the vanity mirror tucked into the suitcases of the owners and flown to the coast from Canada. Designed in just the right way, it’s easy to forget you have neighbours as you shower under the stars. (Don’t worry, they can’t see a thing.) Leave the TV switched off, pour yourself a glass of wine, and listen to the wildlife instead.
