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.

Our 10th year Wedding Anniversary

This is my story of our memorable family trip to the Gold Coast, staying at the Wyndham Surfers Paradise Resort.

In June 2011 my husband and I celebrated our 10th year Wedding Anniversary on the Gold Coast.  This is was also a special trip for us as it was our first family trip using our points and viewing for the first time the kind of accommodations we had invested in.  We decided on the Gold Coast because we were taking our kids with us and at the same time we would do our rounds on the theme parks.

It was also a good excuse to escape the chills of NZ Winter weather that was slowly creeping in… so the welcoming of the warm Gold Coast sun was such a blessing.

Wyndham Surfers holiday

The family celebrating a birthday at the Surfers Pancake house (thats me right in the front on the right with the hat on!)

Early March saw an opportunity for a small family reunion in Australia. This was my first trip to Australia and I was so excited on so many levels! The best thing was being able to book a beautiful apartment at the Wyndham Surfers Paradise. To finally get there and relax in such a beautiful place, was enough to distract me from the fact that it rained 3 days out of 4! But the facilities, the activities, and the staff at Wyndham Surfers Paradise made the reunion so much more special. I was able to celebrate and relax with family and friends and allow them the chance to experience the “Wyndham experience”. I am looking forward to planning the next reunion with the support and wonderful opportunities provided by Wyndham Vacations!
