Deep in the heart of the Bouddi National Park, just 90 minutes north of Sydney, Pretty Beach House guarantees a refined yet relaxed holiday experience
With its sparkling bays, coastal heaths blanketed in wildflowers, wild eucalyptus, sandstone cliffs and ancient red gums dotting the landscape like living sculptures, the Bouddi Peninsula is Australia at its most quintessential.
Extending from McMasters Beach to Box Head in New South Wales and featuring the state’s last temperate rainforest, the Bouddi Peninsula is named after the Indigenous word for heart. It certainly isn’t lacking in this department, or beauty, for that matter.
Nestled high in the escarpment, among the towering gum trees is Pretty Beach House, one of Australia’s most exclusive luxury lodges—offering the perfect secluded perch from which to explore the region’s bounty, from seasonal produce, to art and nature.
A foodie mecca
Every evening at 6.30pm, as the sunset glow filters between the eucalyptus trees, the tables are set in Pretty Beach House’s elegant dining room for its nightly affair: its degustation dinner.
Menus are designed each day by Michelin-trained chef Dean Jones, of London’s River Café fame, who specialises in bold but simplistic Italian flavours, with a focus on seasonality. Expect dishes such as signature risotto served on the finest Bernardaud porcelain, or authentic slow cooked beef cheeks served on rustic pottery from the wheel of master local potter Leno Alvarez.
The best part? Rates are inclusive of all dining, snacks and selected alcoholic beverages, plus a personalised butler service, ensuring guests can completely relax into the experience knowing every whim is catered for.
A home away from home
With its natural fibres, muted colours and artworks from illustrious local painters including John Olsen and Sidney Nolan, Pretty Beach House captures a sense of rustic Australian luxury, complementing the natural beauty which engulfs the property on all sides.
Each of its four exquisitely designed villas ooze visual luxury and sensuality, offering a king bedroom with dressing room, open-plan sitting area, fully stocked bar, combustion fireplace, private deck with a daybed and a heated plunge pool.
Immerse yourself in nature
Rich with native flora and fauna and seven pristine beaches, Bouddi National Park offers a veritable treasure chest of natural wonders at your doorstep.
Go for a glorious cruise on the water aboard the ‘Pretty Beach Launch’, with a skipper on hand to take you fishing or snorkelling at hidden beaches, or relax with a picnic in a tranquil bay. Discover the region’s ancient history with an Indigenous cultural tour, uncovering rock art, and learning about bush tucker and tribal customs.
Or simply enjoy going for a hike on one of the numerous walking trails that traverse through the magnificent Bouddi National Park.
