3. Native Stingless Bees at La Maison Pacifique

At La Maison Pacifique, we are committed to preserving and supporting the local flora and fauna in our beautiful region. Inspired by Jo at Mockingbird Cafe in Kingscliff, (who has her own native stingless bee hive on site) we have recently welcomed Native Stingless Bees at La Maison Pacifique.  They are ideally located in a protected part of our garden, under a palm in the front garden.  Over coming years, and as our bush tucker garden grows, we will introduce more native bee hives in an effort to support the pollination of local plants and fruits.

Top Tips for Travelling with Teenagers

Top Tips for Travelling with Teenagers

The kids are growing up and are no longer all that interested in following Mum and Dad around for the next holiday!  They would prefer to be hanging out with their mates (although we have found that many of the mates are generally away on holidays too)…  But, you are determined to eek out those last family holidays – until of course they get to the stage where they will readily accept joining you – if you pay!

5. Top Tips for Choosing your Wedding Accommodation

Whether you are having a Destination Wedding, or just planning to enjoy a few nights away with your bridesmaids before your special day, we at La Maison Pacifique have some top tips for you to consider when booking your wedding accommodation.

6. Real Reasons Mums need a Holiday

At La Maison Pacifique we feel that every blog needs to have a bit of fun with its articles – and we have found a great one to share with you – The Real Reasons Mums Need a Holiday!  Of course, we reckon that the best family holiday destination is Northern NSW and our beautiful Casuarina Beach, but this one can apply to any holiday – anywhere…

7. Top Tips for planning a Girls Weekend

There are many types of holidays you can take and we’ve come up with some top tips for planning a girls weekend.  These weekends are not only great to catch up with your besties – away from your partner, kids, pets etc, but a real chance to have some fun, spa-time pampering and laughs – recharging the batteries and remembering what life was like “pre-commitments”.  Coming away with a real sense of relaxation is a great way to have a holiday over a (long) weekend, with a chance to feel refreshed after this mini-break.

8. Top 6 Holiday Spa Tips

Who doesn’t love a bit of pampering and being on holiday doesn’t mean that you need to give up on your holiday-spa ideas.  Even if you are unable to access great spas (like our favourite – The Workshop at Cabarita Beach), you can still pamper yourself by following these Top 6 Holiday Spa tips.

9. Welcome to all our new subscribers!
