Rest and recharge with glorious views
The Sunshine Coast, an area around one hour’s drive north of Brisbane, is known for its beautiful beaches, laid-back lifestyle, many outdoor pursuits, and spectacular hinterland vistas. You’ll also find some world-class, luxury accommodation options, with one spot in particular tucked away in the scenic Glass House Mountains that you won’t forget in a hurry.
Glass on Glasshouse is a peaceful retreat that will help you unwind, rest and recharge from the busy pace of life within minutes. While the luxurious, self-contained “pods” are located on a large working property where privacy and R&R is assured (and where your first glimpse of wildlife may be a kangaroo watching you from mere metres away as you make your way up the driveway), the property is only 6km from the Glass House Mountains township, and an easy drive to shops, cafes, restaurants, and lots of local sights. There is also a fantastic on-site cafe that’s open every day, serving up quality, home-cooked snacks and meals.
As you walk into the modern, architecturally designed accommodation hubs at Glass on Glasshouse, the first thing your eyes will be drawn to is the breathtaking view. The property sits in the shadow of the mystical Glass House Mountains, and the design of each pod takes full advantage of this, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows in all areas so that you don’t miss a thing. Privacy is assured though, with the pods spread out from each other and all looking out at the mountains at different angles.
The owners of the property have made sure that every little need is taken care of at Glass on Glasshouse, and that you will be truly welcomed upon arrival. The accommodation boasts all the mod-cons you could want, including a two-sided eco-smart fire that’s visible from both the living room and the bathroom, and a huge freestanding double spa bath that’s perfect for soaking away any remaining stress while you take in the views of nature, wildlife, and the stars above.
Each pod has a comfortable king-size bed, a coffee machine, flat-screen HD television, Blu-Ray PS3 DVD player, iPod dock, surround sound, Wi-Fi, barbeque, outdoor dining table and chairs, SMEG appliances, reverse-cycle heating and cooling, and much more. You’ll notice the kitchen is stocked with plenty of supplies for a hearty breakfast in the morning, and even some extra sweet treats. There are also communal laundry facilities on the property, close to the pods.
Whether you need to book a night away or a longer stay, you’ll soon feel right at home at Glass on Glasshouse. The accommodations provide the perfect opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, and are just the thing for a romantic getaway for an anniversary, proposal, honeymoon, birthday celebration, wedding night or any other occasion. Spoil yourself here and you certainly won’t want to leave anytime soon, and will make memories that you’ll look back fondly on for years to come.
