When it opened in 2008, Pretty Beach House—with three private pool pavilions in a magical cliffside setting run by a crack team of chefs, sommeliers, butlers and spa professional—quickly made a name for itself as the pinnacle of luxury. But the goods weren't to last. In 2012, a bushfire gutted its main building and the doors were bolted shut. Following a multimillion dollar rebuild that adds to the property a two-story penthouse and artworks by the likes of Sidney Nolan and Arthur Boyd, Pretty Beach House reopened in April 2015 with a single-minded objective: to reclaim its title of Australia's most private and exclusive guesthouse. prettybeachhouse.com. +
