You can stay in everything from a tree house to a castle when you travel with Airbnb but how about staying in a place where you’ll get waterfront views - on all sides. Catch the drift? It’s a boat! Check in to Airbnb Yacht Stay @ Palm Beach Pittwater for a weekend that’ll literally rock you. This stylish French yacht is moored at the famous Palm Beach so keep an eye out for Home & Away stars. You can fish right from your front door. Your Airbnb hosts Paul and Lynne have all the gear ready for you. They’ll also set you up with a tasty platter full of delicious seafood. Hungry for more? Man overboard! But don’t worry because you can jump straight off the boat for a swim. There’s even a waterproof bag for a fish and chip run. For all you landlubbers, you can also take a tinny to shore. You’ll love the novelty of sleeping on water in one of their three comfy cabins. They also have a spacious saloon, bathroom and a large cockpit that’s perfect for dining. If you really want to get moving, have a chat to your Airbnb hosts about their cruises. Paul and Lynne are full of local knowledge so they can show you the highlights of Sydney’s waterways.

Sydney Weekender, hosted by Mike Whitney, is now in its 24th year!
Travelling around the city and throughout the length & breadth of the state, each episode investigates the best places to stay, eat and play so you can make the most of your weekend.
After retiring from international cricket, Mike first appeared on Sydney Weekender back in 1994, and since then has loved every minute of it.
Over the years, Mike has hosted Sydney Weekender from all over New South Wales; from Eden in the south, to Tibooburra in the far northwest of the state.
One of Mike's favourite moments was when he had the chance to fly in a fully restored De Havilland Vampire fighter jet at the Temora Aviation Museum. "The pilot opened the throttle and sent the Vampire vertical," he says, "It was such a blast - the whole time I was thinking - I've got the best job in the world."
Sydney Weekender is on every Sunday at 5.30pm on the Seven Network in Sydney, and across N.S.W. & the A.C.T. on the PRIME Network. It's repeated a week later on 7TWO.
We're also on 7TWO on Saturdays - Please check your local guide for times.
