A Dreamy Little Cottage By The Sea

Every now and again I come across a home which takes my breath away. This little cottage is one of them. Charmingly named Captains Rest, the secluded heritage cottage looks out over the water from it's vantage point in Lettes Bay, Tasmania.  Owner Sarah Andrews, an interior stylist, writer and sailor, describes it as "my pride and joy, my haven of peace and serenity." The cabin has been decorated with "love and delight" with objects and furnishings from around the world and is "brimming with curated collections, fine linens, cosy textures and objects of delight". Guests (yes, it's actually available to rent!) are invited to read in front of the fire, take long baths, walk in the forest, swim, fish, and dream. The question is, would you ever want to leave?! 

"When I’m here I can tell when the rain is coming, when the salmon are in the bay, if the sun will rise rosey and when to turn to look and see a rainbow."
