Short breaks are big this winter

Higher than ever levels of guest expectations and rapidly advancing technologies are driving changes to the regional holiday accommodation landscape.

“Gone are the days of contentment with a stay at a humble beach shack, full of preloved furniture. Today’s travellers want their holiday home to be more luxurious than their own home. And free WiFi, linen or little extras like a bottle of wine on arrival have come to be expected,” says industry expert Will Creedon, Managing Director of alloggio, a Port Stephens based property management company specialising in hotels and holiday rentals.

“Short breaks continue to be the big travel trend, and winter is an ideal time to snap up a great value deal on local tours and accommodation,” Will explains. “Our most popular properties are fitted out to feel like your own beach home, with water views, luxurious living spaces, and a fully equipped kitchen, giving you the freedom to eat and entertain when and as you like. Just imagine watching the whales on the Humpback Highway from the comfort of a waterfront holiday home. “Port Stephens has become a worldclass destination which has made its way onto the wish list of travellers from all over Australia and the world.

“With more than 600 properties to choose from, there certainly is something for everyone in alloggio’s portfolio. And wherever you are, you can book instantly at any time of day via your mobile device.“
