Lleyton and Bec Hewitt’s secret rental hideaway goes under the hammer
The home Lleyton and Bec Hewitt have been renting has hit the market, after the star couple scored their new home just down the road.
The Hewitts rented Burleigh Beach Bungalow in the Gold Coast suburb of Burleigh Waters while waiting to pick up the keys to their new home, The Palms.
Josh and Jess Dickinson, the owners of the bungalow, said they were surprised that the Hewitts wanted to rent their property.
“They loved it as well which was nice,” Ms Dickinson said. “You get worried as it’s your own house.”
After buying Burleigh Beach Bungalow in 2016, the couple soon went about transforming it into the coastal abode it is today.
The property was listed on AirBnb earlier this year, which was how the Hewitts came to discover it.
According to CoreLogic records, it was listed as a fully furnished property costing $2250 a week.
Its sale is being handled by Troy Fitzgerald, of Ray White Burleigh Group, who confirmed that the celebrity couple moved out just last weekend.
“When you’re a couple like the Hewitts you’ve got a choice in where you stay and for them to choose the Burleigh Beach Bungalow is a testament to the work Josh and Jess have done,” Mr Fitzgerald said.
“It really justifies the quality and how nice the house is.”
The laid back coastal home is due to go under the hammer next month, and boasts features such as a poolside entertainment area, hanging rattan pendants and a built-in curved mudroom.
It has also had more than one brush with fame, after being used for photo shoots by big-name brands including Lorna Jane, Michael Hill Jeweller, esme Skin Minerals and Glassons.
Mr Fitzgerald said he was unsure as to whether the Hewitts would move straight into The Palms after reportedly dropping $4.305 million on the coastal home.
