Shipping Containers: Rated Five-Stars

by Lizzy Nguyen

Shipping Container Villa Nominated Among the Best

By now, you’ll likely be aware of the immense conversion potential offered by the, once humble, shipping container. They’re being used across the globe as homes, offices, pools, schools, libraries, retail spaces and so much more. Let us draw your attention to one of the more impressive, luxury conversions we’ve seen – a highly decorated, Holiday Home of the Year nominee located within a lush, native bushland region in Daylesford, Victoria.

The 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom holiday rental (yes, you can stay there) was constructed using a number of converted shipping containers and then meticulously fitted with the plush amenities you’d expect of a high calibre, luxury hotel. Not for the faint of heart, the villa spans 50 square metres, is cantilevered over the edge of Breakneck Gorge and features sections of glass floor which provide a breathtaking perspective of the native flora occupying the creek below. Add floor to ceiling windows, and complimentary Moet & Chandon on arrival, and it’s no surprise this property sits towards the top of our list.

What this property demonstrates so effortlessly is that shipping container conversion does not equal a sacrifice of quality or aesthetic. Beyond the luxury inclusions and décor (which include massage chairs, Tasmanian Blackwood baths, pinball machines, chromo-therapy showers, Bose sound systems, Spotify equipped iPads, Oblica fireplaces and hand crafted floating beds), these villas are immaculately constructed and pay homage to the containers that they are built from. With smart design and conscientious construction, a shipping container can be converted into anything you want – there is almost no limit.

This particular display of design and construction excellence is being recognised as one of the greats. Rightly so, the romantically dubbed ‘Paris’ villa has been nominated for Stayz Holiday Home of the Year for demonstrating unmatched refinement and consideration when it comes to temporary lodging options. Packed full of exorbitant amenities, and promising an unforgettable experience, pricing starts at $453 per night – if you want to book a stay for yourself, click here to learn more.
