It may be tucked away in a quiet coastal cul-de-sac, but Gidget’s – so named after everyone’s favourite surfer from the 1960’s TV series – is far from discreet with its hot pink exterior.

This refurbished 1950s fibro house still maintains its beach-shack charm with a retro-nautical theme, which continues inside with vintage posters, model sailing ships and rustic touches.

There’s a large living area to make your own, as well as a self-contained kitchen, a twin-single and two queen-sized bedrooms (one of which is an adjoining studio garden cottage) – all with their own deck, plus surrounding gardens.

And we haven’t even got to the best part – the beach! A 60 second walk will get you to family- and pet-friendly Culburra Beach, which is crowd-free even at the height of summer. Complete each day with the best fish and chips in town at DJ’s (Greenwell Point, a 10 minute drive away), or spend a few hours exploring nearby Seven Mile Beach National Park.

From $250 per night (low season, two-night minimum), $3000 per week (high season). Sleeps six.
