Set be­hind sand dunes and nes­tled among trees, Esper­ance Chalet Vil­lage is a col­lec­tion of chalets, cab­ins and shacks. This idyl­lic hide­away is within walk­ing dis­tance of pris­tine, tran­quil beaches and just a five-minute drive from town. The vil­lage of­fers a home-away-from-home feel, do­ing as much or as lit­tle as you like — bike rid­ing, fish­ing and bush­walk­ing are all pop­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties. “I didn’t want to leave,” says pho­tog­ra­pher Marnie Haw­son of her own stay. “The chalets were beau­ti­ful, full of char­ac­ter, and our host Di made us feel so at home.” One of the area’s orig­i­nal hol­i­day des­ti­na­tions, this peace­ful bush hide­away of­fers the per­fect base for ex­plor­ing the sur­rounds. From $140 per night, min­i­mum two-night stay. For more de­tails, tele­phone (08) 9071 1861 or book on­line at es­per­ancechaletvil­
