Feel the sea spray on your cheeks, close your eyes and breathe in the sound of the ocean’s melodic dance just metres from where you stand. This recently renovated beach house in Gerroa on the NSW South Coast – less than two hours from Sydney – takes all the best bits of a beach holiday and elevates them to conscious levels with the addition of solar power and electric car charging (coming Mar 2022), local produce and secondhand furnishings. Grab one of the boards for a surf then rinse off underneath the outdoor shower, enjoy sunset drinks on the deck overlooking Seven Mile Beach, and toast marshmallows over the fire pit once the kids have gone to bed. There’s much to explore on foot or on one of the bikes provided – think local farmers markets, meals at The Blue Swimmer, and whale watching at Black Rock Headland.
