The whales have arrived and the winter weather is spectacular! Just when our southern friends and neighbours are experiencing cold, wet, winter days and nights, we are getting clear blue skies, sunshine, cool sunny days and beautiful starry nights. Now is the perfect time to head north and enjoy a great break away – not only fabulous weather but fabulous prices too! But that is not all we have to talk about – we have done some great blogs this month (our usual mix of local news, travel tips, wedding information and what we are doing at La Maison Pacifique) so read on for all the details:
- July School Holiday Special **BOOK NOW**
- Whale Watching Northern NSW
- Fun Winter Beach Activities
- Luxurious Wedding Accommodation for our Brides and their Bridesmaids
- Breakfast at Liliana’s Possum Creek
- Our Bush Tucker Garden is now open!
- Daintree Organics deliver to La Maison Pacifique
- Taste of Kingscliff and Tweed Coast
…and don’t forget we are already taking bookings for August onwards with lots of interest in wedding accommodation and of course our peak time – Summer School Holidays. There are some Summer weeks still available but we suggest you get in quick!
Escape the Winter Blues! July School Holiday Special – book before 30 June 2014 and pay off peak rate for a weekly school holiday stay! That’s right $2750 instead of $3200 – a saving of $450! Confirm your booking now so you don’t miss out! Saturday-Saturday bookings: 28 June to 19 July inclusive.
If you are interested in whale watching Northern NSW, then come and join us here at La Maison Pacifique! Located half way between Byron Bay and the Gold Coast, La Maison Pacifique, Casuarina Beach is the perfect location for spotting the passing whales over the next few months.
The Northern NSW whale watching season officially started on Sunday (1 June) and continues until early November. There are a plethora of options available to all enthusiasts to enjoy the beauty of the whales as they travel the Eastern coast of Australia as part of their yearly winter migration.
You may not think that winter could be your favourite time to visit the beach but there are benefits and many fun winter beach activities to enjoy! With fewer people and a real chance to relax, an Australian winter holiday can be a perfect time for a mid-year getaway.
Let’s not forget that the Northern Rivers area (Tweed Coast to Byron Bay) is the perfect spot for the winter getaway. With mild weather and cool nights, its the perfect opportunity to enjoy the beach – and you are only 90 minutes by car from Brisbane or 20 minutes from the Gold Coast Airport.
We at La Maison Pacifique love the fact that we have the opportunity to make your wedding day extra special – with our luxurious wedding accommodation for our brides and their bridesmaids.
This was no more evident than at the recent wedding of Beth and Josh who chose our beautiful beachfront holiday home for their wedding accommodation.
We love nothing better than giving you the latest news and information (and top local finds) for our region and this week we bring to you “Breakfast at Liliana’s Possum Creek”.
6 months in the planning, 6 months to execute our design (we had to wait for the rain!) our Bush Tucker Garden is now open!
Yes, all guests at La Maison Pacifique not only get to enjoy our beautiful, luxury resort-style accommodation but also our adjoining garden – almost 15oom2 of it (and including a great grassed area perfect for touch footy!)
One of the things we love best about offering La Maison Pacifique to our discerning guests is not just getting to know them, but providing all guests with the best hints and tips to ensure that we enable the best holiday experience ever! One tip that has really resonated with our guests is ordering groceries online before their arrival (yes, we do have a meet and unpack service too!), and in that vein we are pleased to say that Daintree Organics deliver to La Maison Pacifique!
The mornings are slightly chilly but the air is fresh and clean on our gorgeous coastline! TASTE of Kingscliff & Tweed Coast 11 – 20 July 2014 is less than a month away and is going to be the food event of the year for our area! There is a wide range of events for everyone from markets to dinners to tastings. Plenty of information available at their website and proudly supported by Destination Tweed. A great week not to be missed!
