Half rainforest hideaway, half coveted country house, this pad is worth sharing.

Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen on Tuesday, December 13, 2016

If you’ve ever imagined what it’d be like to live in your own private section of lush rainforest, you won’t have to wonder for long – especially once you’ve stayed at Misty Woods Retreat in Olinda. This magnificent two-storey, three-bedroom home has all the hallmarks of a pad you’ll want to book again.

The lounge area is a mix of old and new styles. It has a slight retro feel, but pops of colour and a quirky coffee table bring it firmly into the 21st century. It’s here that you and your brood will congregate, either in the morning to plan your day or in the evening to gather around the wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen has been newly revamped.

Those who are in charge of booking should get in quick to call 'shotgun' on the master bedroom. It sits on the same level as the living and dining area, and comes with a sparkling ensuite that has a deep freestanding bathtub. Once the tub has been filled, light the candles on the windowsill and settle in for a soak. From your sudsy spot you’ll be able to look out into the forest. The two remaining bedrooms – another queen and a kids’ room with single beds and toy collection – can be found on the ground floor.

Passers-by disturbing your peace won’t be an issue. The house is perched on the edge of a forest and is serenely private, making it perfect for groups wanting to unplug. Civilisation isn’t a trek away though, and Olinda’s main strip is within easy walking distance.
