Glamping Hub's Guide to Overcoming the Post-Coachella Blues

By Isabelle Jefferies

alt

Following a debate that has spanned several festival seasons, (unofficial) sources have finally confirmed that the post-Coachella blues do pose an actual threat to festivalgoers. Friends and families have been advised to look out for symptoms that include refusing to leave the house without wearing a flower crown and the inability to sleep in an actual bed.

While specialists rush to come up with advice for sufferers, Glamping Hub is here to help out however we can. Whether you're looking to avoid withdrawal symptoms by continuing to adopt the festival lifestyle or you'd like to retreat and recover for a little while, we've got you covered. With countless tents, tipis, and yurts on offer, our Insta-worthy properties are the perfect choice to continue to channel your inner Vanessa Hudgens (aka Queen of Coachella).

Rest assured that—rather than just for two weekends of the year—denim shorts, statement jewelry, and floral headwear are always welcomed by us. The best part? No waiting for April to enjoy them—these rentals offer glamping all year long and are ready to accommodate you whenever the blues are weighing you down.

Read on for advice on getting yourself out of your Coachella-induced funk, and the best spots to make it happen.

1. Keep busy.

Learning a new skill is the perfect way to keep yourself distracted from the sad reality that yet another festival season has come to an end. Among other things, a glamping getaway offers the chance to enjoy kayaking, zip-lining, and horseback riding.

One of our personal favorites is this gorgeous, bohemian-style bell tent. Not only is it ideally situated right on the coast in New South Wales (proof that festival fans don't have to stick to California for their getaways), the hosts provide guests with a boat to use for exploring. A day spent sailing will definitely keep your mind occupied!

2. Create a playlist.

Considering that the general consensus is that this was Coachella's best year ever, it would be totally understandable to want to relive it. Spotify offers a wide range of playlists to keep you satisfied until next year, and this secluded safari tent makes the perfect setting to blast them out. Completely secluded in Zion National Park, Utah, glampers definitely won't need to worry about noise complaints from the neighbors while playing Kendrick on repeat.

alt

3. Go on a health kick.

Following two full weekends of indulgence, a detox is a great way to keep yourself feeling good post-festival season. While glamping, guests will be able to enjoy a diet of delicious fresh produce that's definitely a little fancier than a standard festival burger van. Think free range eggs, homemade jams, and organic fruit and veg. Obviously, no judgment from us if guests decide to slip back into their Coachella ways to see out the day with a delicious craft beverage or cocktail.

4. Reminisce.

Here at Glamping Hub, we are big believers in sharing moments and not things. More than anything, festivals are famous for being a chance to create unforgettable memories, and Glamping Hub is here to provide the perfect spots for when you're feeling nostalgic. Take this romantic yurt rental located to the east of Rome, in one of the greenest regions of Europe. Not only will the gorgeous panoramic views look just as impressive on your Instagram as that Coachella snap, but the rental's rooftop terrace definitely wouldn't make the worst spot to reminisce about the 2017 festival season.

5. Lean on your loved ones.

Support from your friends is absolutely crucial to shake off the post-Coachella blues. At this property in Texas, there are five amazing tipis that can accommodate a group of 30 in total. The term 'fully furnished' is not taken lightly—guests can expect a private kitchen and bathroom. There is even a hot tub where you can all reflect and begin counting down the days to Coachella 2018.

A Glamping Trip to California Wine Country

By Isabelle Jefferies

California is definitely up there as one of our favorite go-to glamping spots, but—considering it stretches for nearly 900 miles—having to choose between the different regions and cities can seem a little overwhelming. Let Glamping Hub simplify this for you by highlighting the countless reasons Wine Country needs to be added to your Californian bucket list.

Nestled in the heart of Northern California, the regions of Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino are home to over 600 wineries. While it's no secret that this part of the world is capable of some premium grape-growing, it is less known that Wine Country is also home to some of the most beautiful and luxurious glamping accommodations.

Road Trip on the Great Ocean Road

By Isabelle Jefferies

There is something seriously satisfying about the thought of the envy on people’s faces when you tell them you’re hitting up the Great Ocean Road for a glamping adventure. It is the road trip of all road trips—insane surfing beaches, a beautiful sunrise somewhere new each morning, and unforgettable nights spent in a unique glamping rental.

Constructed in the early 1900s, the Great Ocean Road spans an amazing 243 kilometers between the cities of Torquay and Allansford. It is the only main road along the Victorian coastline, which is perfect for us glampers since it means we can avoid tedious map reading and focus on more important things (e.g. enjoying the views and picking the best spot for lunch). With all this in mind, Glamping Hub has put together some ideas for you to get planning your road trip and—lucky for you—we have the perfect rentals to complement your busy day spent cruising and exploring.

As a general rule of thumb, we think three days for the road trip is enough to see everything. Of course, the views can be enjoyed from your car to cut it shorter, but we’re convinced that the best way to experience this part of the world is to take things slow and make plenty of stops.

This is the perfect trip to tick a ton of things off your bucket list—whether that means dangling your toes off the edge of a vertical cliff top, trekking through rainforests, or koala-spotting in the street. There really is no limit to the adventures waiting to be had here.

It’s difficult for us to recommend exactly where to stop during the road trip since literally every town you will pass through has so much to offer. However, we’ve picked out a few of our personal highlights of the journey and included some amazing rentals waiting to accommodate you along the way.

alt

The gorgeous seaside town of Torquay is widely known as the official starting point of the Great Ocean Road. It is amazing for surfing, and Bell’s Beach is a definite must-see before you even hit the road. 30 minutes inland, this property is the perfect base for glampers who fancy hanging around in the area a little longer to take advantage of all that there is to see.

alt

From this point, get ready to enjoy some amazing views. Make sure to stop off in the towns of Anglesea and Lorne which offer the chance to explore both national parks and gorgeous beaches. This luxury cabin is located in Kennett River and is ideal for an overnight stay before carrying on down to Apollo Bay.

Upon reaching Apollo Bay, follow the Great Ocean Road into the lush Great Otway National Park. This is a fab place to get close to some native wildlife, especially in the conservation center located just 25 kilometers away. It is also definitely worth heading inland a few kilometers to enjoy a treetop walk with Otway Fly Treetop Adventures. Here glampers can also discover Australia’s oldest lighthouse offering incredible vistas of how far you will have come.

About an hour’s drive from this point will lead you to Port Campbell and its famous Twelve Apostles. This is an amazing structure of 12 grand rock stacks that rise up from the ocean close together. It is a magnificent sight that is sure to be a high point of the trip so allocate lots of time for this one! This rental is the perfect base for an overnight stay.

alt

When you’ve finally had your fill, join the Great Ocean Road once more and head to Warrnambool. As the maritime capital, there is a huge amount of history and culture to absorb because cooling off at Logan's Beach. This is also a great chance to enjoy some whale watching.

The next name on the map is Tower Hill State Park, on the way to Port Fairy. Here glampers can enjoy spotting a range of wildlife including emus and kangaroos while heading through lake-filled craters of an extinct volcano. A little further on, the charming village Port Fairy is famous for fishing and has a lovely, romantic vibe. The river is perfect for a stroll or spend some time exploring the beaches and walking trails along the coast.

This stop officially marks the end of the Great Ocean Road. From here, retrace your steps back home. Make sure to spend some time at the parts you missed and take even more photos at your favorite spots!


P.S. Rumor has it the towns along the Great Ocean Road offer some of the best fish and chips in the world. Glamping Hub is setting you the task of trying as many as you can during your trip—let us know where to find the best!
