Life is Full of Surprises at Wyndham, Surfers Paradise

Sometimes you just need to get away from the stress and business of life and enjoy some down time.  Being owners since 2001 we have been able to do just that on many occasions. My husband and I headed for Surfers Paradise earlier this year for the weekend. Arriving we were surprised how close Wyndham was to the beach, just a stone throw; we were not surprised though by the friendly welcome by the staff. Having booked our room that overlooked the ocean, it was a quick unpack and down to the Friday Night Markets situated on the beach front. Even the husband enjoyed meandering through the stalls.

What surprised both of us was that the weekend coincided with the National Sand Sculpture Championships. This was a three day event which gave us much entertainment as we followed the artists’ progress as they made these extraordinary 3D works. They had started at 2pm that afternoon and already the sculptures were impressive.

The next day we begun to appreciate the central location of Wyndham, the tram stop right out the front, we didn’t have to use our car at all during the weekend; a convenience store and BWS across the road, a terrific pizza shop, and Cavill Ave within easy walking distance.  The weather was magnificent over the weekend, so it was no surprise that we enjoyed the sun, surf and sand of Surfers. In the afternoon we enjoyed happy hour at Wyndham’s bar area, a cocktail for me, a beer for hubby, it was a nice surprise to the end of the day. The Walrus Social Club was a short stroll down the street and provided the evening meal and entertainment in a relaxed environment.

On Sunday it was a return to the beach for a swim and to cast a vote in the People’s Choice for the Sand Sculpture Championships. Talking with the artists was an engaging and informative surprise! Relaxed and reinvigorated we said goodbye to Wyndham Surfers and headed home. We shall be back.

Commonwealth Games at Kirra Beach

Planning the trip to Gold Coast for the Commonwealth Games started in April 2017. We drove up the NSW Coast and stayed at the WorldMark Resort Coffs Harbour – Terraces on the way up before arriving at Wyndham Kirra Beach to a great welcome surprise of wine & fruit.

Each day, the staff at Kirra plotted our route to the events whether it be to Carrara Stadium or out to Fred Huntley Park by bus that stopped right outside the resort. The resort, as you can see, was certainly decorated for the occasion was full of people attending the Games. The friendly volunteers made for a great Games atmosphere and very safe feeling with the police out in force.

We stayed for a week in an ocean view unit with friends visiting from Brisbane enjoying our hospitality. The weather was perfect for swimming in the ocean and pool.

On our return journey we stayed at WorldMark South Pacific Resort Port Macquarie which was, once again, great accommodation for the end of ten perfect days.

Kirra Beach: “We arrived all excited at the prospect of spending a week together”

Our family is growing fast so it is becoming difficult for us to all get together, especially since one of our sons and his family live interstate. For this reason, we planned a family holiday at Wyndham Kirra Beach well in advance. Early in 2015 we booked 4 units to accommodate my husband and myself along with our four children and their families. In April this year we arrived all excited at the prospect of spending a week together.

“We loved the whole concept of Couran Cove!”

Ramada Couran Cove

My husband and I went to stay at the new Associate Resort, Ramada Couran Cove in November.

We were absolutely delighted with our unit, which was right over the water so we could look down at the fish and large crabs just below our balcony. We loved the whole concept of the Resort, with its sandy beaches right inside the circle of units and the wild life e.g. the wallabies which came down to the water’s edge. We loved the location of the WorldMark unit which was so close to the reception, the restaurants and the beautiful swimming pools. 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
