Pretty Beach House
Reopened in 2015 after a redesign, Pretty Beach House more than delivers on its name, offering an elegantly exclusive getaway a stroll from sandy coves and the sea. An easy weekend trip from Sydney, it's tucked away amid Angophora gum trees near Pretty Beach on the New South Wales Central Coast, around a 90-minute drive north of the city. Set around an infinity pool, the property features just four spacious pavilions, decorated with a soothing palette of local materials, Australian art, and custom details (each sleeps two; minimum two-night stay). Food is a star, with tasty share plates sourced from chef Stefano Manfredi of nearby sister stay Bells at Killcare. Spa treats, golf, guided bush walks, mountain biking, and even boating trips are yours to savor.
