Buoys on Queens won House of the Year when it was built, but it has taken the masterful eye of the current owners to transform it into one of our favourite boutique finds for this edition. First, the location. In a quiet cul-de-sac within walking distance of the Sorrento shops and the back and front beaches, you can park your car and forget about it. But step inside the home and discover a world of exquisite interior design and an incredible feeling of generosity - you might want to stay put and enjoy everything these two retreats offer.
Expect lush, caring and thoughtful inclusions. In the Moonah Suite, essentials such as good coffee and tea are from Australian growers, toiletries are organic and natural, the breakfast provisions are local (and indulgent). Then there’s the exquisite artwork, chocolates, books and magazines everywhere, a bottle of sparkling in the fridge, plus a plate of cheese and crackers. We loved the collection of comedy DVDs. Visit in shoulder and off-peak seasons and you could be the lucky recipient of tickets to Peninsula Hot Springs, the movies or ferry tickets to Queenscliff.
Which suite to choose? The upstairs Moonah Suite is house-sized with its airy cathedral ceilings (the light and views are gorgeous), a full kitchen, two private decks and wood fire. The downstairs Banksia Suite overlooking the garden is cosy and perfect for a couple.
