If you’re looking for the coolest – and maybe the coldest – Airbnb rental in Victoria, this studio flat in Melbourne’s Central Business District (CBD) will do the job. Step into a magical world where everything looks as if it’s made of ice and snow, from the ice walls to the glowing ice bed, where you can fall asleep under veils and twinkling lights. Don’t worry – all the decorations are nature-inspired only; there’s no real ice or snow in the flat. This unique stay is also within walking distance of all the city’s bustling CBD attractions.

The Stables is a former warehouse that has been transformed into a rustic, loft-style space – a relaxing base for a weekend in bucolic Daylesford. Exposed beams, wood furnishings and chesterfield sofas give the rooms a snug farmhouse vibe, while stylish coppery decorative accents and dark-toned walls add a contemporary touch. It has one bedroom with a king-size bed, a well-equipped kitchen and a real wood fire for winter visits.
