This Solar-Powered Floating Villa Is a Quarantine Dream Rental

We get it, you really need to get the hell out of your own house now, but it may not be safe yet since there's the little matter of a worldwide pandemic

At this point, that statement must be true for thousands, if not millions of people. This remarkable retreat in New South Wales presents what might be the ultimate in self-isolation goals: the Lilypad Floating Villa, moored off Australia's Palm Beach.

Seriously, consider the prospect of living on the water and all you can see is the scenery, the beach, and a boat to get between the two. No need for a mask or gloves. That's what you'd get with this beautifully minimalist, solar-powered cabin. 

The Lilypad Floating Villa has a surrounding deck for dining outdoors, a well-appointed loft bedroom featuring a king-sized bed, and a luxury bath. The Airbnb listing says 1-2 guests, but it could likely handle a family of 4, maybe a couple more. 

 If this from the Airbnb page alone won't make you want to head to Australia today, you're a little too happy in quarantine:

Our overnight stay packages include tasting plate and champagne on arrival, dinner, breakfast from The Boathouse Palm Beach, on-board wine cellar, a private self-drive tender (or on call tender service to and from wharf if preference), 24 hour concierge service and use of our stand-up paddle boards and fishing gear.

Other amenities include wifi, heating, TV, and beach essentials like an umbrella, blanket, and snorkeling gear.

The price for a stay begins at $1,048 in Australian money or $635 USD. Learn more at
