Every now and then, the hustle and bustle of everyday life sort of catches up with us and the urge to simply get away comes sneaking up on us. This time around we opted to sneak away for a long weekend, and our first choice was to escape on a coast trip. We have had our eyes on the Flinders Treehouse for a while now, but there just hasn't been a good opportunity to check it out until now.
Set amongst the tall trees, this very private get away abode offers everything a family could want or need. Only a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach and a short drive or walk from Flinders village it is the perfect spot for a Flinders adventure. The house has a contemporary treehouse feel and it was a pleasure to sit on the balcony in the morning while having breakfast and take in the magnificent tall trees that surrounds the house. It is very easy to feel a million miles away from the city when all you can hear is the wind and the birds in the trees.
The house offers 4 bedrooms and plenty of space for two families if you wish to share it with someone. Our kids loved the fact that there was plenty of toys to play with and a big trampoline in the backyard. The panoramic windows on the top floor made it easy to see what the kids were upto in the backyard and we have to admit it was a welcome break to see the kids enjoy themselves, exploring and bouncing away outside, while we had a chance to kick back, enjoy a glass of wine and cozy up to the open fire inside.
The house is tastefully decorated and being a Swede I particularly felt at home with the Scandinavian design feel the house had.
Flinders is an excellent place to visit if you want to visit the many nearby vineyards, take a hike through the many magic nature tracks the area has to offer, or simply just enjoy some lovely local food. The rugged coast line is spectacular and we took so many photos we have to turn this trip into a part 2 on the blog! This area has truly something to offer for all ages and interests, so we definitely have to come back soon, to explore it some more.
