Australian Traveller Magazine’s 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes
As a testament to the merits of a healthy sibling rivalry, we’re including both Liapari and Sapphire Seas in our list of 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes for the following reasons: they’re both beautifully executed and maintained luxury homes right on the shores of Sapphire Beach just north of Coffs Harbour; they’re literally right next-door to each other on the beachfront; and the owners, Jason and Lisa, are brother and sister – and fierce competitors to boot!
So of course it was impossible to choose between them. Both have exquisite 14m wet-edge swimming pools with thatched-roof cabanas; both can comfortably house large families; both are immaculately furnished and have games/rumpus rooms for the kids; both are modern, spacious and beautiful; and both have private decks that step right onto the beach.
Heck, if you’ve got the money, we say hang the expense and book them both.
Details // Right next-door to each other on Sapphire Beach, off Coachmans Close, Coffs Harbour, NSW. Both from $500 per night. www.liapari.com.au & www.sapphireseasbeachhouse.com.au
