By now, most of us are probably feeling the effects of cabin fever. But what’s helping us cope, at least in part, is thinking about the adventures we might take once the global coronavirus lockdown is over. One such prospective getaway, the Lilypad Floating Villa, can be found off the coast of Australia’s Palm Beach.
Found less than an hour away from Sydney, the Lilypad Floating Villa is pretty isolated, as it’s actually out in the middle of the water with no neighbors in sight. That seclusion is bolstered by its minimalist styling, fully-featured luxury bathroom, outdoor deck with a dining area, loft bedroom, and more. It’s also spacious enough for two to sleep comfortably but can probably handle 4-6 with some clever sleeping arrangements. Best of all, the rental gives you access to a personal concierge (or your own tender, if you’re confident in your boating abilities), fishing gear, and even stand-up paddleboards. Pricing starts at $1,048 AUD ($635 USD) per night.
