Presenting Our Most Unusual Features, For A Unique Holiday To Remember!

20 November 2020

Let’s face it, we’re all in dire need of a holiday right now.  

It’s just… staring at four bland hotel room walls doesn’t fire up much excitement, especially after all the staying-at-home-time we’ve been doing.  

So, we’ve put together a list of amazing properties with seriously unusual features, to help you book a memorable escape that’ll be anything but dull!

Read on to find out more about The Bluebird Penthouse, with its converted Land Rover hot tub… or how about The Boathouse, a romantic retreat with a roof created from an upturned boat?  

Oh, and the underwater Reefsuites, with their giant windows showcasing the Great Barrier Reef and its mesmerising wildlife, is a stay worthy of the most indulgent bucket list.
