During our membership of 13 years, we have now visited Ramada Resort Golden Beach 10 times, for a week at a time. Beautiful, clean and with a great location on the water, what makes this resort even better for us is that it is only an hour’s drive from our home in Brisbane.
Caloundra, which is the nearest city, has so much to offer. Great shopping, good restaurants and entertainment – we never fail to find something new every time we come here.
This photo has been taken many times by visitors to Golden Beach and will be taken many more times by future visitors.
2017 started off well for our family, with a stay at Ramada Marcoola Beach (Sunshine Coast) for three nights on New Year’s Day.
We were not disappointed either, enjoying everything from the spacious rooms, short walk to the beach for body surfing, relaxing in the heated pool and going on a leisurely ride around the area on the resort bikes. The Surf Air restaurant onsite is also not to be missed, as they serve up delicious food and it’s a comfortable area to sit back, relax, have a drink and unwind.
Our holiday was everything we expected and we will certainly be going back for more this year.
On the 3rd of July this year we flew from Brisbane to Wyndham Resort Denarau Island (Fiji) for a one-week stay. This holiday with our daughter Lauren, son Matt and daughter-in-law Melinda had been planned for four years, since Matt and Melinda had returned from living and working in the UK. The holiday was originally planned for May to coincide with our (Bevan and I) 35th wedding anniversary but as Matt is a school teacher we had to wait until the July school holidays. The holiday was even more special, as we had become grandparents to precious Oliver in late December of 2015, so this was his first overseas trip! The family time was so special and gave us a chance to spend quality time with Oliver and get to know him better.
The staff at the resort were so good with children. Oliver was greeted with so much joy by everyone that we encountered.
Bevan and I stayed at Wyndham Resort Denarau Island ten years ago, for our 25th wedding anniversary. It’s safe to say our stay this year will not be our last. We love everything about this resort – friendly staff, excellent accommodation, fine dining options and most importantly time to rest and relax.
I have attached a photo of a beautiful Fijian sunset with us all enjoying this spectacular sight – as you must!
It was my husband’s 60th Birthday and the 30th anniversary of when we first met in USA, so to celebrate both occasions we decided on a trip to California, USA. We wanted to restrict it to two weeks so that it would fit in the September school holidays.
We decided on Anaheim due to the theme parks and San Diego because going to the San Diego Zoo was high up on my children’s bucket list.
We stayed at Worldmark Anaheim resort and Wyndham Inn at the Park at San Diego. We only had points to cover one week, but by borrowing on next year’s point we had enough to cover the whole accommodation. September is a good time to go because it is not peak season in USA, however the weather is still warm.
At Anaheim we went to Disneyland for two days and to Universal Studios on one day. The kids loved Disneyland of course. My husband and I really enjoyed Universal Studios, especially the Studio Tour which included a 360-degree 3D show of King Kong versus T-Rex. The special effects show was interesting and the kids loved the animal actors show. The Minions 3D ride was fun and it was so warm that day that the kids walked through the Water Park with their clothes on just to cool down. (Hint: bring swimming costumes for the kids.)
With my partner Rosemary, I have been a Wyndham Owner since 2006. In ten years of accumulative membership we have experienced some fantastic vacations and short stays in beautiful places within Australia and overseas. We have enjoyed time in Vancouver, Whistler, Fiji, Bali, Wanaka (at least 10 times in both summer and winter) and thanks to our RCI association, holidays in France, Greece and Tahiti. Did I mention the cruises?
In 2017 we will enjoy another New Zealand stay in Wanaka followed by Hawaii, California, Missouri, Florida and New York. While that will be exciting, it is the winter break in North Queensland, Port Douglas and we particularly love when the warm jackets can be left at home in the cupboard.
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.
I have been a Wyndham Owner for 15 years and it has given me a unique privilege to share my holidays with family and friends.
So here we are in Tassie! I invited my friends from Germany and Panama, Mauricio, Lilia and their baby Elias and Helena to the ‘Apple Isle’. We stayed at the luxurious Wyndham Seven Mile Beach. On entering the 3 bedroom apartment, my friends were so overwhelmed with the palatial size and beautiful interior. Exploring beautiful Hobart and beyond filled every day with wonder and excitement!
