Best Unique Property
Aussies have always loved a beach-side holiday home, but the winners of the Stayz Holiday Rental Awards show a shift from the beloved beach shack to more designed, regional escapes.
The awards were judged by editorial experts — POPSUGAR Australia judged the Best Unique Property category — except for the People's Choice Award, which was voted by the public and given to a Victorian countryside property that also took the Best Romantic Property award. Fun fact: In 2016, that same property won the Interior Design category.
Judging by the winners across all the categories, it seems design, indulgent comfort and being a world away from the city are key in creating a desirable holiday home. Yep, that sounds about right!
