REPORTER: Jake Kilroy

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.

Even those who have never bounced east of the Mississippi have a picturesque fantasy about the Hamptons. They see sleepy thin fences hugging wooden lovebird boardwalks with splashes of long, wavy grass rolling against the beach. They see a foggy breeze giving the New York coastline a nostalgic palette of muted colors. They see themselves celebrating romance beneath pale beach ball lanterns aglow in a class-act tent with the warmest cheer you can find after sunset.

There are moments that capture your heart, give it pause, and allow you to admit to yourself that not everyone is lucky enough to be where you are and have your life. Overlooking the sea while sipping a cocktail, surrounded by vineyards, mountains, and olive orchards, with your luxury tent behind you is almost assuredly one of those instances. That’s one of the (very many) reasons people adore a glamping stay at Cabañas Cuatro Cuatros.

REPORTER: Jake Kilroy

In the twinkling desertscape of Texas, polished glass structures, invigorated by metal and stone, capture the eye and fascination of any traveler lucky enough to roll through the small town of Driftwood. As rural as it may be, Driftwood endures as a slice of Americana that melts a dreamer’s cowboy heart, so it’s fitting that tucked away in its countryside community is a spectacular home-on-the-range venue that’s equal parts stylish modernity and old-world elegance.

The Greenhouse at Driftwood, owned by the same family for generations, has become a beloved destination for romantics wanting to tie the knot surrounded by century-old oaks and cacti. Just southwest of Austin, the venue is as much a savior of its surrounding environment as it is a key component of the scenery itself. The gorgeous open space uses rainwater collection as its primary source for flora and fauna alike, while helping conserve local wildlife and bird habitats. Plus, the grounds are beyond stunning.
