Pacific Road House
Overlooking the shimmering vista of Palm Beach and even the Barrenjoey Lighthouse in the distance, this is one of the most glamorous beach hotels in Sydney, swanky enough for a bikini model photoshoot and the perfect setting for a sunset martini after a long, leisurely day at the beach. Overseen by local design team Greg Natale Design, the interiors of this light-filled, 1950s house are a stylist’s dream. Sleek white walls are offset by dark timber floors and breezy sheer curtains, with abstract artwork adorning the walls and plenty of sofas scattered throughout. With three spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms – each kitted out with a full range of superior linen, fresh towelling and Aveda toiletries – renting the house is a savvy choice for longer stays or those travelling in a group, with an open-plan main area made for entertaining. Cook up a feast in the modern, white gourmet kitchen, and dine either inside or out on the terrace. Either way, you won’t want to leave in a hurry.
