A beachside getaway in Portugal

Is it the end of the weekend already? Another working week stretches before us and I'm daydreaming of a beachside getaway to help me make it through until next weekend. Let's escape to Alentejo Beach House, a contemporary villa rental near Comporta on the beautiful Alentejo coast in Portugal. Three independent bungalows with beautiful ocean views and a communal main house for dining and socialising. Oh the sunsets and the sand and the water and the rolling dunes! Oh the fabulous Portuguese food and wine! Oh is it really a new working week already! Alentejo Beach House another hand-picked piece of paradise via Welcome Beyond.

Words cannot describe

The real estate adage goes "location, location, location" and I don't think you can get a more spectacular location than Ben Buckler Point in Sydney, overlooking iconic Bondi Beach. Here houses spill down to the high water line bravely facing the unremitting waves. How do you design a house that is up to the challenge of sea and scene? How to embrace the view and the site restraints? Ask architects Tobias Partners or better still drink in the restrained beauty of their design, Deepwater House.

Waterfront - Olivia O'Bryan

Sisters Ashley 'Olivia' Waddell and Courtney 'O'Bryan' Whatley of Florida based interior design firm Olivia O'Bryan took a stunning waterfront property and transformed it into an elegant, yet somewhat casual home that I sincerely hope the owners use as their main residence. The mostly white walls and light concrete floors make every room so bright - I bet sunny days makes this even more special in person. Now if you will excuse me a margarita and that pool are beckoning....

Beachy pink

Think beach house think white painted walls and accents of blue and sea green. Perhaps that should be pink or melon or citrus green. This modern family holiday home takes a fresh look at the beach theme with its hot fruit flavoured colour hits. Light, bright and stylishly relaxed. Just what you want for your vacation retreat by the sea. Cabana com Arte in Comporta, Portugal by Lisbon-based architectural and interior design studio Sa Aranha & Vasconcelos.

Stalking a beach shack

The beach shack, an unpretentious bolthole, a daydream stamped into the collective consciousness of Australians. Escape on a Friday night and head to the coast. Reluctantly drag the family home in the fading Sunday sun. A seachange wish, a rite of real estate passage. Save up. Get a toehold on a hillside overlooking the surf. Build the shack ... or buy this one perched between the sea and the National Park at Seals Rocks on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales. A compound of interconnected shacks designed by Bourne Blue Architecture and for sale via BresicWhitney. Surf, sand and snoozing on the daybed by the window.

(It may look like a laid back escape but the price will stun you.)
