Relaxing Getaway at Shoal Bay

2017 was a roller coaster ride for our family. There were many ups and downs which tested our resilience and love for each other. Beginning of January, my husband started a new job because he was made redundant in 2016. April was when we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by renewing our vows. We had friends and family visiting us from overseas, I was diagnosed with hypertension and type 2 diabetes. My daughter graduated from high school, then went through the dreaded HSC. Then we celebrated her 18th birthday with a big party, and I was involved in a car crash. By December, I was so exhausted and drained physically, emotionally and financially! So when my husband decided he was booking at Ramada Resort Shoal Bay using our expiring Wyndham vacation points for Easter break, I immediately said yes!

 

Checking in was smooth and hassle-free. Justin from Wyndham Vacation Club was very helpful and polite and informed us with all the facilities of the resort. The one bedroom unit was clean, tidy and quite roomy for the three of us. We were able to attend the 3pm Good Friday mass at St. Michael’s Parish as it was only a 10-minute drive. The resort’s location is fantastic, it was surrounded by shops and restaurants. The bay is across the road; on the right side are the mountains with a walking track to Tomaree Head. There was also a short passage off the road that leads to the pristine and secluded Zenith Beach. As we walked along the shoreline, the cheerful vibes from the holidaymakers are contagious and you can tell everyone’s having a good time. We had a swim on the beach and a picnic lunch in the park overlooking the water. We walked off Tomaree Head and as you reached the summit, the view was spectacular!

 

For dinner, we booked a table at the Shoal Bay Country Club. The seafood platter was delicious and priced reasonably. By Easter Sunday, we attended the 8am mass, had a beautiful alfresco breakfast and explored nearby Nelson Bay. Then it was time to go back to Sydney. I said a prayer of thanks for the blessings and left with a happy feeling. This short break invigorated me with a renewed energy and determination. I am ready once again to face all that life throws at me.

As we were driving out of the carpark, I looked back at the building and promised myself that we will be back.

 

Thank you Wyndham Vacation Club for the opportunity!

“The BEST Holiday Ever” – Easter in Dunsborough

Wyndham Resort & Spa Dunsborough | WorldMark South Pacific Club by Wyndham

Family in Dunsborough. My Brother & his wife came over from the UK to Australia for their retirement celebration, as well as my own retirement  It’s been 11 years since we last were all together, &, adding four little girls since, here we all are again.

Due to my Ownership, I was able to treat the whole family – 9 of us staying in two Grand apartments and one 2-Bedroom Deluxe apartment in Wyndham Resort & Spa Dunsborough – spending some fun times and laughter as a family.

It was an awesome few days we had together. I was so happy and impressed, watching my 72 yr old brother playing soccer with my granddaughters, who he had never met before, on the children’s playground, then continue to teach them how to play ping pong plus chess. My brother was amazed how good the girls were at swimming and having races in the pool. Continue reading

Easter in Sydney

Sydney at Easter seemed a bit of a gamble. The weather could be fickle and it’s not exactly the summer high season.

Nevertheless we booked Wyndham Sydney about 9 months out and looked forward to the date-to-go, all the way from Perth. Continue reading
