THE BEST OF PALM BEACH

 

Offering some of Australia’s most exclusive vacation rentals, Contemporary Hotels proves to be the go-to concierge service for some of Australia’s most prestigious properties offering bespoke hotel-like services for discreet travellers.

 

With Palm Beach Sydney being a growing travel destination for elite Sydney residents looking for a weekend getaway, we hand selected two properties offered by the unique service that offer unique individual characteristics suited to both the “Modern Family” or “Contemporary Couple”.

 

The Modern Family

Spectacularly set on Sydney’s iconic Whale Beach, “The Archer House” is the ultimate getaway pad for the modern family offering spacious open plan living and a beachfront location. Designed by acclaimed designer Craig Rosevear it has been built into the contours of the local landscape with the beach at your doorstep and a minimalist steel, glass and concrete pavilion offer a spacious open living design with panoramic views over the South Pacific Ocean. The property graciously flows over two levels, with living dining and kitchen on the top level and bedrooms located on the second level. The 4 generous bedrooms can be found on the lower ground with bathrooms, including a family/bunk room, meaning the house can comfortably accommodate 12 guests.

 

The Contemporary Couple

“Rockridge Palm Beach” being an original 1940’s Beach Villa is ideal for a weekend couples retreat with its magnificent ocean views and idyllic hilltop position. Only an hour north of Sydney, the residence features a quaint and cosy living and dining room that has exquisite views onto the property’s infinity edge pool as well as Palm Beach and the ocean beyond.  The elevation of the house commands unobstructed and expansive breathtaking views looking over to the famous Barrenjoey Lighthouse, Pittwater, Whale Beach, and the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Rockridge’s sandstone and timber decking overlooks a garden surrounded by an acre of lush, green Australian bush and tropical palm trees. The beach being only a heartbeat away means easy walking access across the road from the villa. Follow the original common sandstone and wooden steps to the popular south end of the beach with its ocean pool and iconic restaurants. With no immediate neighbours at this quiet and elegant villa, you will feel at one and at peace with your surroundings, just as it should be.
