The tiny stretch is arguably one of the country's most spectacular sights, captivating tourists with its pure white sand and crystal clear water.

Such a beautiful area of Australia.

Wasn't sure where to post this, and have not been getting notification of post from this topic, so have some catching up to do.

Rent Winnie the Pooh’s Tree House in the Original Hundred Acre Wood at This ‘Bearbnb

“Sometimes,” said Winnie the Pooh, “the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”

And nowhere is that more true than the aptly named ‘Bearbnb’ that bears his name.

Tucked away in a lush corner of the Sussex countryside that inspired A. A. Milne’s original Hundred Acre Wood, Pooh’s trademark treehouse has been lovingly replicated and is set to host its inaugural guests as part of a Disney celebration marking the beloved Bear’s 95th anniversary.

The custom-built tiny home, based on E.H. Shepard’s classic drawings from Milne’s original books, is overseen by Kim Raymond.

He’s a Disney illustrator who’s been creating images of the iconic bear for three decades.

“I have been illustrating Winnie the Pooh for 30 years and I continue to be inspired by the classic decorations of E.H. Shepard and the more recent Disney stories,” Raymond said in a statement.

“The ‘Bearbnb’ is a unique experience that brings the charm of Pooh to life for fans, whilst honoring the original adventures that have been so important to many people for 95 years.”

Per the Airbnb listing, during their visits, Pooh lovers will get “a guided tour of the original Hundred Acre Wood (a.k.a. Ashdown Forest), play Poohsticks on the iconic Poohsticks Bridge, and enjoy locally sourced hunny-inspired meals.”

As with its literary prototype, the Bearbnb’s whimsical décor includes a ‘Mr. Sanders plaque’ above the arched tree branches surrounding the front door, plenty of comfy spots for napping, and a plethora of “hunny” pots lining the kitchen shelves.

Apart from the “bear necessities,” the new House at Pooh Corner also boasts modern amenities including yoga and wellness products designed to aid travelers in communing with the true Tao of Pooh.

This magical domicile dedicated to Piglet’s BBFF (best bear friend forever) is the perfect spot to bring a family for a once-in-a-lifetime, immersive Winnie the Pooh experience.

But as you can imagine, guests of even an enchanted destination must observe proper house etiquette, so…

• Strictly no heffalumps inside the house
• Hands are to be kept out of the honey pots
• A snack of “a little something” encouraged at 11 o’clock in the morning
• Poohsticks is mandatory
• Multiple naps are permitted
• No pets (other than Roos, Tiggers, Eeyores, Piglets and Pooh Bears)
• No smoking, you’ll upset the bees

Even for a “silly old bear,” that seems fair enough.
