With the holiday season almost upon us, we're dreaming of stunning faraway retreats to escape to. Just in time, Stayz has announced the finalists in their annual Holiday Rental Awards to whet our appetite.
Every year Stayz stages these awards in celebration of their range of incredible properties on offer all around the country. Places as far flung as Yallingup in Western Australia, all the way to Dover, Tasmania’s most southern town, with all the usual glamorous suspects such as Byron Bay and Port Douglas in between.
Some incredible properties are listed and we have to admit, feed our hunger for beautiful interior decoration, architecture and design – let alone the chance to put our feet up.
The announcement calls to action our own Katrina O’Brien, HBs associate editor to join the judge’s panel once again in the category of Interior Design. Though her position is enviable, it also signifies the opening of the People’s Choice award, where you can be the judge.
Here’s a selection to inspire your next holiday…
“Each year the calibre of properties recognised by the Stayz Holiday Rental Awards continues to grow and this year is no exception"Simone McDermid
The award categories are:
MOST VALUABLE PROPERTY
AT ONE WITH NATURE
“From inner city penthouse apartments with rooftop jacuzzis to converted trams in the Perth Hills, these properties offer unique experiences and those extra touches that make a traveller’s stay more personal."Simone McDermid
“Overwhelmingly, indoor fireplaces dominated the Romance category, while lavish pools were a standout in the Indulgence category. Our Family category finalists also went the extra mile with cubby houses, an arcade machine and gaming consoles for the kids, and big kids.”Simone McDermid
All finalists in each category are entered into the running for the People’s Choice Award, to vote for the best holiday rental in Australia. You can vote online here now. Winners of each category will be announced mid-November.
