What holiday accommodation will this key open?

Pottsville Beach is an up and coming area, family friendly, and renowned for its idyllic slow-paced beach lifestyle; however, that is changing and changing quite quickly. This once sleepy seaside village is approaching record levels of new entrants, and to accommodate this surge, there are new housing developments being planned as we speak.

For holiday makers though, Pottsville Beach is still an ideal place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Being so close to Gold Coast, #Kingscliff, #Casuarina, Brunswick Heads, and Byron Bay, it’s a holiday haven without the crowds.

So, given this, choosing the right accommodation, whether for a weekend getaway, public holiday stay, family reunion, girls catch-up, or lover’s retreat requires a bit of planning. So here are some handy tips to keep in mind to make the most out of your Pottsville Beach holiday:

  • First, a good starting point is deciding what sort of accommodation your needs require. So, decide whether an accommodation cabin on acreage; family cottage near the beach; hotel/motel in town; bed and breakfast; or off the path rentals such as an upcycled caravan, or converted barn, would fit the bill. With the continued emergence of Airbnb, and other major accommodation sites, heaps of options and choices are available nowadays.

  • Second, decide on your price range. As you know, price is a factor in everything, and many would have you believe that the more you pay the better your holiday accommodation would be; however, that’s not always the case. Bargains galore can be had if you plan in advance, especially for high season periods and public holidays (Christmas, Easter holidays etc). As an owner, our holiday rentals get booked up fairly quickly, as far as 6 months in advance for Christmas and Easter holidays, so it pays to get in quick. Some accommodation also offers early bird specials or long stay specials, so that’s another way to save on price. At Fig Tree Retro Studio, we always have specials going on, which you can have a look at on our Voucher and Specials page.

  • Third, another factor is deciding on whether or not you want to be active during your holiday, and if so, opt for a holiday rental that would allow you to accomplish this. Whatever your preference, it pays to do a bit of research about the area and any fun activities nearby. Pottsville Beach is in a perfect position as its halfway between the Gold Coast and Byron Bay, so it’s the ideal base for any activities you wish to do. For the nature enthusiasts – there are national parks, estuaries, and beaches nearby. For the active go-getter – there is hiking, stand-up paddle boarding, and surfing, just to name a few. Interested in other activities? Head to Fig Tree Retro Studio’s Activities page to browse a list of additional activities, and ‘things to do near Pottsville NSW’ that has something for everyone – the beach, theatre, gallery, golf, shows – you name it!

There you have it! The above tips are just a starting point to get the ball rolling on you taking the plunge to book your Pottsville Beach holiday rental – whether for a couples holiday, girl’s weekend retreat, or some one-on-one time with the hubby or wife.

Thanks for reading!
