La Maison Pacifique Newsletter

Latest News from La Maison Pacifique – August 2014

We did get pretty busy with the July school holidays and all, so sadly we missed our usual July Newsletter – BUT – we have come back bigger and better than ever in August!  Featured articles this month include:

1. Last Minute Specials now updated!

We have been delighted that our bookings have remained steady through the winter months and are now keen for our valued subscribers to have an opportunity to take advantage of our last minute accommodation specials.  Book early to avoid disappointment!

2. Taste of Kingscliff and the Tweed Coast

This is a little out of date as this year’s Taste of Kingscliff and the Tweed Coast has been and gone.  However, read on for the events that did happen this year – and think about travelling to our beautiful location for next year’s event!  Not to be missed!

3. Top Tips to beat Jetlag

After a recent trip overseas and some less than successful attempts at minimising our jetlag, we’ve done some research and found a great article with fantastic Top Tips to beat Jetlag!

As is our way, we have also added in some extra ideas of our own – and this marries in nicely with our earlier articles…

4. How to choose Travel Insurance

We love providing helpful advice to all our friends, so it pleased us enormously when we were recently contacted by Alison Rex Paulin of Travel Insurance Direct in relation to our earlier post about Top Tips for Stress Free Travel.  The lovely Alison has now compiled for all La Maison Pacifique subscribers, friends, guests and followers her Top Tips on How to choose Travel Insurance – and you know they will be great as it comes from an Industry Professional (and a real person!)

5. Bush Tucker Garden – The Photos

Ok, so we remain a little excited about our wonderful new garden area, incorporating our bush tucker, herb, tea, tropical and orchard fruits sections.  I have taken a few photos for you…

6. Spida’s Top things to do in Kingscliff

Following on from our most successful post “Lisa’s Top things to do in Kingscliff“, we have just found this recent article (and video) put together by the Escape Team and Spida Everett on our neighbour Kingscliff.  Of course, we love any articles that promote our beautiful area, and whilst we, ourselves prefer to stay just down the road in Casuarina, we are just a 40 minute bike ride along the foreshore and boardwalk to the beautiful town of Kingscliff.

7. Black & White vs Colour Wedding Photos

Debating between black & white vs colour wedding photos? We’ll we’ve done some research and found this great article by Emilie Baltz (from The Knot website) which will help you decide (and we have added in contact details/links for local Northern NSW suppliers)….  Read on…

8. Our favourite wedding video of all time!

Ok, so we are a little like proud parents on this one…  Recent guests Beth and Josh enjoyed a magical day in Casuarina and we were lucky enough to host Beth and her girls for their pre-wedding activities (and Beth and Josh post wedding).  Our very sincere thanks to them both for allowing us to use their photos, and here is the most fantastic wedding video and special celebration of their day.  You can see how beautiful it all was and we sincerely wish them all the best for their future as husband and wife…. 🙂  Thankyou Beth and Josh!

9. The Commonwealth Games are on their way – our Gold Coast is next!

With the Glasgow games deemed “the best ever” and the warm welcome of the locals with their Scottish brogue, it is time now to turn our attention to the Gold Coast!  Four years could seem a while away, but we at La Maison Pacifique are ready and waiting!  Can’t wait for the Games to hit our shores and we are really looking forward to welcoming visitors from around the world.  For updates on the progress on the games, visit or follow on twitter at

10. Welcome to all our new subscribers!

Welcome to all our new subscribers and thank you to all our regular subscribers  – we do hope that you continue to enjoy our newsletters each month.  Thanks to our returning guests – and don’t forget to tell us about your stay – we love your feedback (and it is important to us!)  We look forward to welcoming you all to our property soon – and don’t forget to book early – 2015 is shaping up to be another bumper year!
