Easter Break

We've been away the last few days. We went to a little beach side suburb called Currarong just shy of 2.5 hours south of Sydney. 

Firstly let me say how surprised I was at the price difference in renting holiday homes between the north and south beaches of New South Wales. The north is far more pricier and if you're trying to secure a property during the holiday periods like we were, the tariff increase also pushes the prices further up. New South Wales has so many beaches along its coast line so opting for a "less known" or "popular" spot, helps to bring the accommodation costs down. 

We travelled with a few friends, actually my old mixed basketball team. We usually get together frequently, and in the last few years we've also gone away somewhere. This year the Easter and Anzac holiday periods were only a few days apart instead of weeks so a few of us took some extra time off work and enjoyed a whole week away. 

The property where we stayed at, was this two story home right by the water. We loved how accessible it was as it was only 100 meters away from a flat beach and lagoon, general store, fish and chips shop, rock pool, fishing spots and playgrounds. 

Inside the home was simply gorgeous. It was a two story / four bedroom home perfect for large groups of adults. Each bedroom was large, two rooms had ensuites but there was an additional two bathrooms as well. There's a little rumpus area on the bottom floor with a small kitchenette, the lounge area upstairs had ample space and seating, but we all seemed to gravitate to the large balcony to enjoy the impressive view. The property is the only home on the block that is two story so you could really take in the the area from above. There kitchen was fully stocked with almost every kitchen appliance you can think of, catering grade oven, dishwasher, a coffee machine and plenty of plates and cutlery in various shapes and sizes. There was even a second large fridge down stairs in the laundry room.   

I wished I took some photos of the property before we made ourselves at home but you can see what it looks like from the website I booked it from. We definitely enjoyed our stay here and thinking about coming back in summer. 

Here are some photos of various things around the area I did mange to take with my new phone.



Hope you all had a great Easter long weekend!
