Halcyon House is a one-of a kind property, adorned with glimmers of its former life as a motel but with the luxury and style of a modern-day Australian beach town. Set in the sleepy surf town of Cabarita, untouched by hoards of tourists, Halcyon House has been beautifully restored into a 21-room boutique hotel.
Upon arrival be greeted with champagne and ice cream, what better way to start your stay? Throughout the hotel notice the little touches and charms that will evoke memories of lazy days by the sea. It's low key charm and emerald blues are a perfect spot for couples but with complimentary bicycles to take around town, it has something to keep everyone entertained.
Enjoy relaxing by the pool decked out in chic blue and white striped sun loungers or explore the surrounding area on one of the hotel's beautifully hand-painted bicycles.
Paper Daisy is the talk of the town, the hotel's restaurant run by former Noma chef Ben Devlin. Expect fresh seafood and an array of flavours - the green rice fried prawns with chilli and ginger are a must; a stay at Halcyon House is a truly unforgettable experience.
