I had originally booked the week at Golden Beach as an excuse to catch up with a couple of girlfriends. Well it turned out that I was in desperate need of a break from life in Sydney.
The start to the holiday was not welcomed due to the morning storms over Brisbane and being stuck on a plane for three hours and having to cancel a lunch with a former colleague. When I had finally disembarked from the plane, I collected the hire car and headed north up the motorway.
Upon arrival at Golden Beach, relief finally settled in. The view from the room was all that calmed me down and knowing that I was going to get to enjoy it for the next week. I sat and enjoyed the view and the breeze for a little while before really checking out the unit.
This was when I discovered a little surprise on the bed. After reading, I realised that I was one of the lucky instant winners of a Coles Group and Myer Gift Card. Even now, the only decision that I have made is that I am using the card value on myself and no one else. But the decision on what is the next question.
The next day one of my girlfriends and her two kids arrived. Kids were ecstatic as there was a pool with a water slide. So no questions asked of the 10 and 8 year olds as to what they would like to do for the afternoon. So after a relaxing lunch we hit the pool. And this is how we spent Monday as well. Swimming, relaxing and enjoying the view from the balcony and again until their departure on Tuesday afternoon.
Wednesday I spent the day with another girlfriend who took me up to Eumundi markets. We had a ball. Even her two year old had fun.
The rest of my stay was spent swimming, shopping, eating, drinking and just good old relaxing while watching the world roll past across the view in front of me from the balcony.
So would I return to Golden Beach? Yes. Would I recommend to others to stay? Yes.
