Elevated Vacation Home Offers Incredible Views of the Ocean

Stationed above the coast on Great Ocean Road in Australia, The Pole House is a modern home with incredible views of the ocean. It was designed by F2 Architecture and is considered one of Australia's iconic buildings, commonly referred to as the most photographed house on the road. It's not hard to see why. The elevated structure sits on a slender-yet-sturdy pole with a long, suspended walkway leading to its front door. From some angles, it appears as if it's floating.

Recently renovated, The Pole House has some exceptional new details. The walkway was transformed with glass balustrades, and it gives visitors a sense that they're walking on air. In addition to its entrance, the home has floor-to-ceiling retracting glass walls with the bathroom and supporting pole concealed in a feature wall that's covered using warm-burnt-ash timber.

If you're wishing that you could stay in this unique place, you're in luck. The Pole House is currently available for vacation rentals through Great Ocean Road Holidays, and they advertise it as not only an accommodation, but an experience. Considering the sleek architectural design and the gorgeous views, they're right.
