Summer 2024 Updates at 1 Beach House

Updated: Feb 22

We are redefining the luxury vacation segment in Australia

Since we unveiled 1 Beach House in June 2023, we've embarked on a mission to redefine the very essence of luxury vacationing in Australia. Nestled along the picturesque coastline of Warrnambool, 1 Beach House has become synonymous with unparalleled comfort, cutting-edge technology, and unforgettable experiences. In this blog, we'll take you on a journey through the value inclusions and experiences that have set us apart, and share our exciting ambitions for the future.


From the moment you step into our oceanside sanctuary, you'll be ushered into a world of conveniences that go beyond the norm. Unlocking the main door at 1 Beach House, at the start of each stay, our virtual voice assistant welcomes guests by their first name - ushering in the beginning of a personalised experience of adaptive music, mood lights, and temperature control that our guests find very helpful and convenient for controlling appliances and experiences during their stay at 1 Beach House.

The 1 Beach House App

To further drive our commitment to creating high standards of comfort and convenience for our guests, we will be rolling out the 1 Beach House Mobile App. The mobile app will allow guests to remotely control lighting, music, streaming services, entry access, and even room temperature — all from the palm of your hand. It's like having your personal concierge, ensuring that every aspect of your stay is effortlessly tailored to your preferences.

The app will also enable guests to scan barcodes on devices across the house to bring up simple 'how-to-use' videos or manuals.

The new 1 Beach House app will also act as your personal tourist information hub. The app will provide season-based recommendations on the best tourist experiences and places to eat or explore during your visit to Warrnambool. If you need to reach our team for help, the 1 Beach House app will also come with a concierge button that will connect guests directly with our team, at any time of the day.

Personalised Intelligent Fragrances - Adding a Dynamic Sensory Dimension to your stay at 1 Beach House.

The 1 Beach House app is only the start of new feature rollouts over the coming months. In Autumn of 2024, we are doubling down on the functionalities that smart sensors around the home can offer. We recognize the nostalgic effect of joy and a true sense of vacationing that pleasant scents bring to holidaymakers when they enter the main floors of popular 5-star resorts and hotels across the world. To recreate an even better sensory experience for our guests at 1 Beach House, we will be rolling out two fragrance options for guests; the Nostalgic Ocean Breeze - inspired by the fresh ocean breeze at the nearby Logans Beach. We will also be introducing the Wild Rain forest fragrance - inspired by the Redwood Forest within the Otway National Park.

Guests can tap on an NFC Card made available on the entryway to select their preferred sensory fragrance option during their stay. Guests will be able to use the 1 Beach House App or the virtual voice assistant to set their preferred fragrance.

Intelligent Modes: Creating Enchanting Moments

In the first quarter of 2024, we will be releasing new Intelligent modes to enhance Indoor and Outdoor experiences at 1 Beach House, for guests. Intelligent Modes are voice or app-activated scenes that use mood lights and sounds to create magical experiences within spaces at 1 Beach House.

We are currently piloting our first scene namely the Dinner Ambient Mode. Using a single voice command, the Dinner Ambient Mode will transform your dining experience by recreating the ambiance and feeling of an upscale restaurant.

Imagine dining under the soft glow of evening-colored pendant lights above the formal dining table, whilst the kitchen bench provides magical background lighting effects that mimic the flickering of a fireplace. Enjoy jazz music and temperature control that compliments the mood created.

Sleep Mode at 1 Beach House: A Journey to Tranquil Slumber

In a continued effort to redefine luxury accommodation, 1 Beach House introduced the innovative "Night Mode" in January 2024. This feature, activated effortlessly with a tap of an NFC card, is designed to envelop guests in an ambiance that nurtures deep, restorative sleep.

Transformative Light and Sound Experience

As guests activate the mode, the room's lighting slowly transitions to a hue scientifically proven to stimulate deep sleep. This gentle shift in lighting is not just about creating a calm environment; it's about aligning with the body's natural sleep rhythm, setting the stage for a night of undisturbed rest.

Complementing the visual tranquility, the Night Mode offers a choice between two audio experiences: the serene whispers of a forest or the soothing sounds of the sea. The sea sounds are particularly unique, being digitally enhanced recordings from the nearby Logan's Beach. These authentic oceanic tones are not just soundscapes; they're a bridge to the natural world, lulling guests into a peaceful slumber with the rhythmic melody of the waves.

Holistic Approach to Rest

This mode isn't just an isolated feature; it's part of a holistic approach to wellness at 1 Beach House. From the optimal room temperature settings to the infusion of calming scents, every aspect is meticulously crafted. The Night Mode is more than just a sleeping aid; it's an immersive experience that respects the sanctity of sleep and the individual needs of each guest.

The introduction of the Night Mode at 1 Beach House underscores our commitment to providing not just a stay, but an experience that rejuvenates the mind, body, and soul.

This conceptual article describes the envisioned Night Mode at 1 Beach House, emphasizing the integration of technology with natural elements to enhance guest sleep quality.

To further create a unique experience, the Dinner Ambient mode takes advantage of the indoor-outdoor flow between the formal dining area and the garden. In the summer, guests can dine on, as they watch the 85-year-old Olive Tree transform and come alive with a colorful light show that syncs to the rhythm of the soft jazz music in the background.

But the best is yet to come. We have ambitious plans on the horizon, including a new voice-activated "Movie Mode" for movie nights in the living and lounge room spaces.

Elevating Your Stay: 1 Beach House's Intelligent Sensors Enhance Comfort

Imagine coming back from a day of exploring the region or lounging on the beach, and as you step into 1 Beach House, you're greeted by the perfect blend of music and a climate that feels tailored just for you. It's a level of comfort that will make your stay with us truly unforgettable.

Sensors That Understand You

Our journey begins with the deployment of intelligent sensors throughout 1 Beach House. These state-of-the-art sensors are designed to do more than just detect your presence; they're capable of understanding your needs, preferences, and even your mood.

Setting the Right Mood with Music

Music has a profound impact on our emotions. The right sounds can uplift your spirits, enhance relaxation, or energize your day. Our intelligent sensors, equipped with advanced audio analysis capabilities, can gauge the mood of the room based on factors like noise levels, body language, and even the time of day.

Are you winding down in the evening? Our sensors will softly transition the music to a soothing melody, creating a tranquil atmosphere for relaxation. Starting in December 2023, sensors in the outdoor entertainment space will use voice-level analytics to predict when guests are in high spirits or chill energy - and can automatically play music that matches the detected energy.

Guests will retain the option to override this mode, and stream music to any of the outdoor or indoor speakers using their mobile devices or any of the Google-powered speakers across the house.

Adaptive Room Temperature Control

1 Beach House is equipped with climate control systems that seamlessly integrate with our intelligent sensors. As these sensors monitor the ambient temperature, they adjust the heating or cooling to ensure that every corner of the house is at your desired comfort level.

Whether you're returning from a sunny day at the beach or seeking warmth from the evening chill, you'll always find the temperature just right. No more fiddling with thermostats or searching for the perfect playlist; our sensors take care of it all.

The Future of Personalised Luxury

At 1 Beach House, we believe that luxury is not about extravagance; it's about personalisation and ease. Our intelligent sensors represent the future of personalised luxury, where technology adapts to your needs, providing a level of comfort and convenience like never before. As we roll out all of these exciting features, our team will continue to gather feedback from guests to learn how we can further improve the technology that powers 1 Beach House.

Coming Soon: A new interactive website

We are excited to announce that, coming May 2024, we will be introducing a redesigned website that features a direct booking option, along with a new 'Experience 1 Beach House' page. The experience page will offer visitors an interactive tour of the key amenities and intelligent inclusions that we offer at 1 Beach House.

Exciting news on our expansion and Loyalty Programs

In the coming months, we will be announcing our plans to expand our affordable luxury, smart vacation home services to other stunning locations across the country. We will also be announcing a loyalty points program for our guests.

At 1 Beach House, every stay is a chapter in an unforgettable story, and we can't wait to create more extraordinary moments with you.

See you in our next quarterly release update!

Our commitment to Guests' Privacy

At 1 Beach House, your privacy and safety are paramount to us. Our sensors are designed to detect movements, temperature, and sounds in real-time, solely to enhance your experience without compromising your privacy.

None of the services described in this article will collect or store your personal data.
