The most Dreamy Accommodation Site ever is Here!

If you’re after a little getaway where the decor takes centre stage, View Retreats is the place to discover it. A website that helps you find stylish accommodation with a difference, founder Mat Lewis tells me that he operates the site under the quality over quantity philosophy; selecting sublime retreats where the architecture and styling is just as important as the location.

By handpicking only the best and most unique properties around, you could say that we’ve found all of the needles in the haystack,” Mat tells me, of the retreats he and his partner select to put on their website.

“We’ve spent way too many years staying in boring hotel rooms while traveling with work,” Mat continues. “So when we plan a getaway we want something completely unique and a little bit special”.

And so accommodation site View Retreats was born.

One gaze over the images in this post – all places you can visit when booking a getaway with View Retreats – and you soon come to realise that the quality of the accommodation is nothing short of stunning.

Selected based on the excellence of the architecture and decor first, the destinations are uniquely rural. You won’t be seeing the big smoke from your window, Mat explains.

“Everyone needs to take time out of the city to reconnect with nature… so even when they’re located on the outskirts of a town, [the accommodation] still provides the perfect setting for rest and relaxation”.

With dreamy destinations in both Australia and New Zealand on offer, it’s Campbell Point House in Victoria that gets Mat’s vote as his best destination.

“It’s a French chateaux style mansion just over an hour from Melbourne… it’s so opulent and totally unique… it even has its own helipad if you want to bring the chopper!”.

If you’d like to see more of the dreamy destinations available to book via View Retreats, just head on over to their website.

What do you reckon? I want to live in the living room of the beach house in this post. Honestly – it takes my breath away!
