Welcome to Gidgets on Gretel where all your cares will melt away, as you settle into your groovy beach abode. This simple, but thoughtfully curated beach-side hideaway, nestles between Little Beach and Shoal Bay beach and is not more than 300 metres from either. Hang out in the hammock all day and enjoy some surfin’ safari cocktails in the leafy backyard that leads directly onto the footpath to beach. Rinse off under the outdoor shower when you’ve had enough of surf and sand and enjoy a family BBQ while you chill out for the evening.

The duplex sits on the ground floor and has been furnished with casual comfort and relaxation in mind. A well-stocked kitchen will delight you with its vintage treasures and has everything you need to cook up a feast. Enjoy your spoils in the eat-in kitchen area or head outside to the outdoor setting and take in the serenity. Two good-sized bedrooms, both with queens will accommodate your group and there is a day bed in the living area that can sleep an additional guest or child. A light-filled bathroom with walk-in shower and a laundry completes the picture.

Here you can enjoy drinks and Tapas downstairs on the jetty, overlooking the gin clear waters of Little Beach or more formal dining upstairs where chef Ben Hall will delight your taste buds.

For the adrenalin junkies head out to the sand dunes for an afternoon of action-packed adventure or the endless ocean vistas of Birubi Beach, One Mile or Boat Harbour.

Whether you’re seeking adventure or just somewhere to chill and watch the world go by, Gidget’s on Gretel is perfectly positioned to make the most of your time in wonderful Port Stephens.
