Located smack bang in the centre of Hepburn Springs you’ll find Illuminate – a sweet little cottage made for couples wanting a relaxed spa country retreat. We didn’t think a holiday in a town filled with mineral springs could be freer from hassle, but Illuminate proved us wrong.
Entering the front gate and climbing through the enclosed deck will bring you to Illuminate’s doorway. As the name suggests, you’ll be met with fresh spaces where the sun filters through big windows. The first thing you’ll notice is the enormous double spa bath along the wall of the living room. That’s right – you can soak in the hot tub with a view of the crackling fire, sipping from glasses of wine and perhaps watching a film together. If swimming in the giant spa builds up an appetite, you have several dining options to choose from. Dry-off and robe-up to prepare a lavish meal in the kitchen or an easy one using the BBQ on the deck, pour through the arrival hamper of regional treats to find what you fancy nibbling on, or spruce-up and head out to eat. Local Mediterranean hotspot ‘Ruben’s’ neighbours your stay, so you won’t need to walk far.
While you may just want to stay-in and rest-up with your favourite person (and favourite pooch, who’s also welcome to tag along if you wish), you’re conveniently located to venture out and explore. Hop off your doorstep and you’re in the hub of Hepburn Springs, with its cosy cafes, boutiques, restaurants, traditional pubs, and of course, day spas galore. For active types, you can get on foot for the bushwalking tracks alongside your abode.
For an intimate and restful sojourn just paces from everything Hepburn Springs has to offer, Illuminate is a wonderful choice.
