What if you could purchase a parcel of land in paradise and build your dream home on it? Surely you would. Of course you would. Anybody would. It’s eternal, universal daydream. Anyone from any country has hoped to do exactly that. So it’s surreal to find a couple who actually did it—and is now offering the place up to travelers.

This week’s #BirthdayBucketList is Hideout, the (properly named) eco-friendly, off-the-grid escape in Bali, where owners Ali and Jarmil checked a gigantic item off their bucket lists. Building their serene fantasy abode beneath a volcano and amid rice fields was a life-changing process for them. They had high hopes and, after several months of construction, their finished bamboo bungalow still managed to blow them away. They expect Hideout will do the same to its spirited guests.

Surrounded by jungle and overlooking a tranquil river, Hideout was made to welcome adventurers in search of total peace. Given that Hideout’s most frequent guest is the gentle breeze, it’s hard not to see how a visitor wouldn’t cure any and every stress. Stunned by such an exotic slice of heaven, our crew at the Venue Report had to ask Ali and Jarmil about the inspiration, the building process, and what they hope others can achieve at their dream home.

The Bush meets Lake St Clair
REPORTER: Jake Kilroy

The story of Pumphouse Point starts loooooooong ago (with maybe even more Os). In fact, according to the staff, the real story starts 20,000 years ago, when Australia’s deepest lake, Lake St. Clair, was born on the island of Tasmania. That’s how much of a feature the scenery is for the lakeside hotel.

Historical Homestead
REPORTER: Katie David Bush

What started out as a weekend home away from the hustle of NYC, has turned into a stunningly renovated modern retreat ready for your romantic nuptials or primed to accommodate your big family venture, and to think just over 14 years ago, this historic homestead would’ve appeared to be in desperate need of a bulldozer. According to Kate, the owner of Handsome Hollow when her and her husband Huck saw the homestead for the first time, it had ceiling fans and spray paint adorned the walls. These days, it’s reno’d interiors boast gallery walls, fine vintage furniture, and enough embellished detailing to make even the most crate and barrel enthused blush.
