“We’ve Visited Fiji 12 Times!”

Wyndham Resort Denarau Island poolWe have been Owners since 2003 and we would say that purchasing holiday Credits with Wyndham was a truly inspired decision and one with which we have absolutely no regrets. We have enjoyed many weeks of delightful holidays and stayed multiple times at resorts including Denarau Island,  Sydney, Pokolbin Hill and Golden Beach – our son and his family also enjoyed a stay at Kirra Beach.

Our favourite resort is Denarau Island, Fiji, where we have visited 12 times since joining – sometimes just Annette and myself but also with our daughter and family or our son and his family. Continue reading

Ramada Couran Cove: “Simply a Gem!”

Ramada Couran CoveWe have been happy Owners now for a decade and more and have always enjoyed our membership in the WordMark South Pacific Club to its absolute maximum. When I discovered that the new Associate Resort was Couran Cove on the island paradise of South Straddie off the Queensland coast, to say I was delighted would be an understatement. I couldn’t wait to organize a visit to see what they had been able to achieve so far with the resort. The potential I knew was breathtaking. Continue reading

A Wonderful Week at Flynns Beach

Earth Day at Wyndham Flynns BeachBeing the resort carrying our name, of course we stay at Wyndham Flynns Beach (Ed: Port Macquarie) whenever we can, but since we joined we have made it the place to celebrate our wedding anniversary each year, and we are always well looked after (often with a little extra something for our anniversary).

Four Generations of WorldMark Holidays; a Poem!

WorldMark South Pacific Club by Wyndham Owners

Four generations of the Young Family

The Wyndham experience can be many things to many people, excitement of overseas travel for some or lazy beaches and sparkling oceans for others. Our personal conception of Wyndham has been focused on family holidays, and this year we managed a two week holiday to Kirra Beach for four generations of our family, ages ranging from 4 to 94!

The activities were endless, theme parks, beaches and shopping, we didn’t even have to leave the resort with the kids enjoying the mini golf and swimming pool, whilst the older ones sat around fine tuning our next Wyndham holiday to Seven Mile Beach, Tasmania in December and writing this little poem: Continue reading

Dolphin Trainer for a Day in Coffs Harbour!

Dolphin Marine Magic | WorldMark South Pacific Club by Wyndham

Dolphin Bella and us!

It had been 3 and a half years since my partner & I had had a REAL holiday. September 2012 was the plan we made at the end of 2011. Where to go?

I have been a dolphin lover for as many years as I can remember. I have sponsored a dolphin in Bunbury for over ten years, so the original plan was to holiday in the Perth area and visit my adopted dolphin at that time – Tangles. However, I received a newsletter in March to say that Tangles had not returned to the bay since December 2011.

I then looked into the Coffs Harbour Dolphin Marine Magic adopting program and adopted my beautiful little Bella. This got the excitement growing within and so I booked a room at the Wyndham Coffs Harbour – Terraces for our September holiday – we were going to visit the dolphins. Continue reading

Perth: “The Perfect Place to Catch Up”

Kings Park, Perth | WorldMark South Pacific Club by Wyndham

Afternoon tea at Kings Park with an 84 year old friend

Before leaving Fremantle on a cruise round the north of Australia in June, we found the Wyndham Outram Perth the perfect place to stay to catch up with old friends from our time in Perth over thirty years ago.

We flew in on Sunday night, I lost my wallet at the airport then recovered it an hour later after a taxi driver handed it in.

On the way to the Outram, we shared in a dinner following a first communion, then were dropped at the hotel into which we quickly settled, finding the facilities even better than we had been led to believe from the description provided. Continue reading

Lauri & Geoff

Lauri & Geoff booked a Canada / Alaska trip organised by your exclusive Owners-only travel agency, Travel Club by Wyndham. Here’s an excerpt of the email they sent us when they returned home:

The trip was fantastic. The scenery is wonderful, the people friendly although they had no idea what we were saying. We may all speak English but not the same way.

Vancouver is a vibrant city with lots to see. We went to Granville Island, took a harbour tour, walked Stanley Park and went to Grouse Mountain. While on Grouse Mountain we took a helicopter flight over the region – fantastic. Continue reading

Owner Pic of the Week – skiing in Wanaka!

As foster carers of 5 children under 9, holidays are somewhat important to us, as you can imagine!  Our Wyndham Ownership has been one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Not only does it ensure we take those all important holidays, we have seen places we would never had normally dreamt of seeing. Continue reading

Owner Pic of the Week: “Our Second Home”

WorldMark Resort Ballarat lake

The scenic lake at WorldMark Resort Ballarat – click to enlarge the panorama!

Living in Melbourne, WorldMark Resort Ballarat (VIC) is our second home. Each time we go we take a photo of our (currently three year old) daughter standing outside the big beautiful door at the entrance. It’ll be great to see how the door doesn’t seem as gigantic as the years progress! Her name’s Alice so it’s her very own wonderland!

Strolling around the lake on our last visit in May, I took this photo using my iPhone. I used no filter or editing. It really “reflects” the beauty of this tranquil place. I guarantee you’ll love it as much as we do.

Sonia, 

WorldMark Owner since 2005

An Exciting Mid-Air Proposal to Start a Fantastic Holiday at Dunsborough

What a start to a perfect holiday at Wyndham Dunsborough (WA)—a mid-air flight proposal en-route Melbourne to Perth.

We started our long-planned holiday with the family of 4 (self, wife Tina, son Steven, & daughter Sarah) along with my mum (nanna) Jane, boyfriend Fabian & girlfriend Rania. This was a holiday to Perth and then a drive down to Wyndham Dunsborough, in the Margaret River country. We had heard from another Wyndham Owner that this was a great place to go to and stay. Our family have been Owners now for about 5 years, and have thoroughly enjoyed our Ownership in all aspects—–the resorts are great, well planned out, close to shops, attractions, activities, etc; the staff are most welcoming and helpful—always; the benefits of Ownership takes us to various spots not only around Australia, but even overseas. We have had the pleasure of staying at Los Angeles, Cairns, Tasmania, Sydney, Ballarat, Port Macquarie, and now Dunsborough. Continue reading
