Latest news from La Maison Pacifique January 2014 Update

Our La Maison Pacifique January 2014 Update includes our recent social media articles, posts, tweets (and some other great information added in) including:

Alluxia's Best in Travel 2013
Alluxia’s Best in Travel 2013

You can ink with us via Twitter, facebook, Google+, Linked in and Youtube for our news/stories as they happen (although our newsletter does have added extras too).  Read on and enjoy!

..and yes… we did get a bit rushed off our feet and didn’t issue a December newsletter…  oops… 🙂

1. La Maison Pacifique makes Alluxia’s “Best in Travel” list 2013

We are so excited to announce that La Maison Pacifique, our beautiful beachfront holiday home in Casuarina NSW has made Alluxia’s Best in Travel list 2013.  Here’s what they say!:

“One of the most incredible holiday houses we’ve seen this year. The interior design by the lovely and talented Di Hendy has you wanting to settle in and never leave. The parents’ retreat is simply heavenly while downstairs the biggest decisions are whether to laze by the lap pool or stroll across to the beach. Such decisions…”

2. Thank you

As a result of a record number of enquiries since December 1 and five confirmed bookings for 2014/5, we are delighted to announce that we will be donating (on your behalf!) $250 each to Wesley Mission Brisbane’s Emergency Relief Service and OzHarvest.

We are finding increasing interest in our beautiful holiday home, so we would advise you to book now to avoid disappointment!  Dates are filling fast with many enquiries already for all peak holiday periods – although there are still some popular dates available.  Enquire now to secure your preferred dates!

Tips for Planning your Holiday

3. Top tips for planning your holiday

Your leave is booked, you’ve saved the cash, you’ve sorted out the where’s and now all you need is some top tips for planning your holiday!  The best holidays are planned not within an inch of their lives, but with some fun and flexibility allowing for some spontaneous action.  Don’t do what we did once – do the planning on the plane on the way there – really think about what you want to do in each location and we have some top suggestions which can ensure your holiday is the best ever!

 4. How to be a great house guest (or holiday companion)

The holiday season is upon us and we are all preparing for a fantastic summer break.  Does your holiday involve visiting (and staying with) your family and friends?  How do you rate as a house guest?  Are you often asked back?  Well, we often have house guests at our place and with the holiday season upon us, we have some great tips on how to be a great house guest – and the things our guests have done that we have loved!

Of course, this can be translated into when you holiday with family/friends at holiday houses, where a little bit of consideration for everyone goes a long way – and can make your holiday memorable, exciting and fun!

5. Must Haves for your long haul flight

At La Maison Pacifique, we have often welcomed guests from overseas to our beautiful beachfront property in Casuarina NSW.  For these guests, long haul flights can be just that – a long haul – but we have done some research (and with a little help/inspiration from A Luxury Travel Blog) have come up with an Australian-ised version of the must haves for your long haul flight.

Top ten tips to end your holiday on a high!

6.  Top 10 tips to end your holiday on a high!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year….until you come back from your holiday and it’s over. But wait! You can stave off the end-of-holiday doldrums (and maybe start the plan for a beach getaway for this time next year?), with just a few little adjustments.

Our inspiration for these tips come from a great post from The Huffington Post By but we have added in a few extra comments too!

7. Welcome to all our new subscribers!

December 2013 saw our biggest increase in subscribers to our newsletters with more than 60 enquiries for the month!  Thank you to all our regular subscribers  – we do hope that you continue to enjoy our newsletters each month.  We look forward to welcoming you all to our property soon – and don’t forget to book early – 2014 is filling fast – and enquiries are starting to float through for 2015 as well!
