Soft sand, blue ocean, birds singing.
It sounds like paradise; perhaps, that's because it is.
Drive up the Pacific Highway for just over an hour, and you'll find yourself a slice of bliss right on the water's edge. Pearl Beach is where we were lucky enough to spend our time this August, while shooting THE ANNUAL(purchase your copy here!). And so it was, that the TLSE family called Wallara Pearl Beach home for 3 nights.
The home is split into two; the main house is complete with a full kitchen, comfortable lounge area and a huge fire for the winter months (yes, we may have toasted marshmallows). A short bare foot walk down the covered joining walk way takes you to the guest house, complete with a mini lounge area and bathroom, sleeping 3 comfortably. The house opens up to an outdoor area with lush lawns and high bamboo that's perfect for privacy. A table greats you on the deck that is a perfect setting for long lazy lunches, and there is fire pit to sit around at night whilst enjoying a vino with friends. The house can sleep 10 comfortably and is designed with large groups in mind, so going on holiday with your favourite 'other' family is no problem.
The house is situated right in the middle of the Pearl beach community, and is a thirty second stroll to the beach; you can actually hear the waves crashing down as you drift off to sleep. A cafe sits on the corner of the road, so you don't have to worry about getting your daily caffeine fix, for they have you sorted.
So instead of heading to Bali this summer (although you know we have no issue with that), why not unwind close to home and be amongst the tranquil bush this Christmas season?
Unwind with days spent laying on the beach, soaking up the rays in-between dipping in the ocean. Go exploring with the kids in the rock pools, and spend late evenings gazing up at the clear night sky with the ones you love.
