Private cabin with a hot tub in the garden? Yes please.

Tucked behind the palm trees of Byron Bay, Kelly Slater is recording music, Kassia Meador is waxing her board and Taylor Steele is capturing the action on camera.

This is La Casa Artist Residency, a custom-built surf lodge created (surprisingly) by beer brand Corona to house surf stars, musicians, artists, skaters, filmers, all under one roof.

It may be all one big advertising ploy but the location, halfpipe, guests and creative vibe all work together, make it a super sick-looking place to stay.
