So you made the trip to Sydney, sitting on a plane for nearly an entire day to experience life "down under." You really need to make the most of it, and a hotel really just won't cut it. A room in the historic Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse keeper's cottage is really the only way to go. Overlooking Seal Rocks, the view is stunning, the trails, surf, and swimming spots are unbeatable, and although the price might be a little steep at $326 a night, you didn't exactly fly this far to be thrifty. These cottages, built originally in 1875, offer all the modern touches you could need, including a flat screen TV, DVD, electric heating, a fully equipped kitchen and laundry, making this one of the few places on the other side of the world that feels just like home.
