It’s been a hectic start to the year, what with early election speculation and Kanye West’s Twitter account. We’ve all been busy. Which is why Easter has snuck up on us so fast and now we’re tasked with the urgency of figuring out how we’ll spend our four days of freedom.

Sure, a staycation means you’ll most likely get your life admin in order -- but a weekend away, where lazy mornings are spent nibbling on hot cross buns overlooking a magnificent ocean view, sounds like a better idea.

The good news? Such holiday rentals won’t break the bank, either. Here, HuffPost Australia rounds up the best beach houses, garden cottages and city warehouse apartments across the country for your Easter weekend pleasure. Bon vonyage!
