A modernist masterpiece situated atop of South Australia’s rugged coastline, this luxury escape showcases why Adelaide routinely tops lists of the world’s most liveable cities.
The Fleurieu Peninsula is known for its Mediterranean ambiance, with sandy beaches, a local culture dedicated to gourmands, and the refreshing absence of commercialism. Luxe showcases the pristine Southern Ocean with sweeping views from high windows, yet maintains guests’ privacy with innovative design.
Only a short drive or cycle to Australia’s preeminent wine regions, including Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley, and McLaren Vale, arrange a private tour to meet world-renowned winemakers and sample their finest. Retreat to luxury, rejuvenating with the sound of the ocean meeting the cliffs, and watching colourful sunrises and sunsets. Try to count the stars from the spa in the clearest skies outside of the Sahara, or on colder nights, light the fire while listening to the extensive surround sound system or striking some notes on the grand piano.
There are two king ensuites on each floor, all featuring individual control air conditioning, underfloor heating, state-of-the-art sound systems, automated blinds, full glass double rain showers, separate toilets with bidet, and deep designer bathtubs positioned so you can soak up either urban or sea views.
What the Owners Love
Somewhat off the beaten path for travellers, Luxe Haus is on the driving route between the charming ‘City of Churches’ and holiday haven Kangaroo Island. Plan day trips explore the Adelaide’s vibrant cultural scene, or one of several nearby wine regions. For those wanting more action, it is a hotspot for fishing, surfing, and diving—a number of nearby operations arrange ocean cage diving in the natural habitat of fearsome great white sharks.
What We Love
Find your solace in this premium beachside hideaway with art that engages and delights, from muscular iron-cast dogs on the balcony to pop art walls in the living space. In a house that offers something new around every corner, the generously proportioned ensuites make it the perfect getaway for groups or families who like their own space.
What the Sophisticated Traveller Loves
No sense will be left untouched. A cultivated wine scene is home to rich red varietals such as the famous Penfolds Grange, as well as lush chardonnays and rieslings. The local food culture is all about provence, from the great fishing town of Port Lincoln just to the north, while not far inland you’ll find organic farms for grass-fed lamb and hand-pressed olive oils.
