Heavenly hideaway

I don't know about you, but now the kids are back at school, I could do with a holiday! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love school holidays, but they can be exhausting. So when I saw this little gem, it looked like the perfect place to relax and recharge. Oh, and the fact that one of the guesthouses is called 'Driftwood House' doesn't hurt either. With a choice of accomodation styles, there's something for everyone:

this design was inspired by fishing cottages on the Danish coast

or choose Little Palm guesthouse for a taste of luxury

fresh, bright and breezy - perfect

love this kitchen!

or maybe you'd prefer an authentic American Airstream caravan?

drinks on the verandah anyone?

So, what do you think - looks rather appealing, doesn't it? I'll see you there!

Have a great week,


  1. Oh I just knew it had to be Byron Bay. Love that place! And love the look of that accommodation as well...better start saving!!

  2. Kerri you beat me too it ! I had my photos of this gorgeous spot all ready to post on Friday. We had been planning on going there in the holidays, not to far from home, but alas it was booked out. Great minds think alike...........

    Have a great week , your ceiling is looking fabulous.

  3. I'll go the Little Palm guesthouse and meet you on the deck for cocktails! Enjoy your week Kerri!

  4. I'd love to take a tour of the airstream, but I would prefer to stay in the dreamy white bedroom, make tea in the lovely kitchen, and sit on the dreamy porch. Okay? I'll see you there.

  5. I know what you mean, you love the kids around but school hols can be so exhausting! We are only 1/2 way through ours.
    Great pics. Always a fan of Byron xx

  6. What a stunning home. It reminds me of my recent Fiji trip. Oh well, being back in freezing Melbourne's not too bad I 'spose.

  7. Us girls in NSW still have one week of holidays left so we will meet you there next week...I will bring the cheese platter!!!!

  8. Bring it on Kerri! I have a week of school hols to go and the in-laws arrive tomorrow for 10 days. There go my sleep-ins and wandering around in my p.j's 'til late morning :o(
    Enjoy your day.

  9. Ah yes - very appealing!
    Especially love the look of the Little Palm guesthouse!

    We're still enduring school holidays here - for another week! The combination of rain and a house full of active kids isn't great.. :) Though it is nice to have them around and I know I'll miss them when they go back next Tuesday..! The irony of it all.

    Have a great week!

  14. Oh Kerri...this post had me drooling ...Oh how I miss our Summers ...cannot wait to feel a soft cool breeze on a warm summers day...LOVE the guest house especially...dreamy! x

  17. Hi Kerri,
    Thank you for visiting Northern Light today, and for your sweet comment!
    Looking forward to reading more about Driftwood Interiors. You Aussies have such a great design eye, very close to scandinavain style (with a little bit of the tropics), and this post even shows that, with a nod to denmark, non the less... great day for me to visit ;)

    we are in heaven....perfect place to relax!
