From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Perched alone on a magnificent headland on the rugged east coast, this ethereally elegant three-bedroom glass house is all about the allure of seclusion. Inside, the mood is open and modern: oak beds, witty artwork, furnishings both comfortable and chic. Thoughtful touches include heated stone floors and a refrigerator stocked with treats such as lamb-rosemary sausages and artisanal ice cream. The only sounds are those of the native wildlife and of the waves rolling onto the secluded beach below. It is indeed a retreat—no one under 12, no visitors—with nothing to interrupt the experience. —2006 Hot List

When to go: December through February, the summer months.

Which room to book: Of the three, the master bedroom has a walk-in closet and a quirky huon pine bathtub (house, $370–$487).

Amenities: Beach
