Holidaymakers Riding Wave of Nostalgia

Holidaymakers from around Australia are riding a wave of nostalgia at Caloundra’s beach-side suburbs, where a selection of retro homes and units are in hot demand.

The laid back, coastal-village vibe of Caloundra’s beach towns with their ocean-front parks and vibrant retail strips offering everything from trendy alfresco dining to old-school fish and chips have made them a family favourite for generations.

Our holiday accommodation business, Accom Caloundra, is experiencing increasing requests for retro or original accommodation where the authentic beach break comes with some authentic touches such as Laminex tables, chequered lino and enamel canister sets on top of the pantry!

Holiday team leader, Danielle Smithson, said the style of accommodation was popular for visitors who wanted something a little quirky, had a fondness for yesteryear, wanted to stay somewhere simple and low-fuss, or were looking to recapture the magic of their childhood holidays.

“We are getting quite a few requests for the original, old school houses and units. The interest certainly appears to be growing,’’ Danielle says

At Henzells we manage several retro style properties, with 23 Bryce Street, Moffat Beach, perhaps one of the best examples.

To feature on this Saturday’s (June 25) episode of Queensland Weekender on Channel Seven, the lovingly decorated 2 bedroom 1960’s beach shack, just a short stroll to the beach, is the epitome of character and charm.

Sleeping up to five guests, the property is available from $525 weekly, with season rates fees and conditions applying. For more information, you can view this property on our website via the following link -
