Winter Nights at La Maison Pacifique

Winter Nights at La Maison Pacifique

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:

…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!

1. July School Holiday Special – pay off peak rates for your Winter holiday stay!

2. Whale Watching Northern NSW

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.

3. Fun Winter Beach Activities

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.

Daintree Organics Deliver to La Maison Pacifique!

Daintree Organics Deliver to La Maison Pacifique!

Daintree Organics Deliver to La Maison Pacifique!

Daintree Organics Deliver to La Maison Pacifique!

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!

Oh – and don’t let the picture fool you – Daintree Organics  is a proud distributor of organic, vegan, natural foods and vitamins as well as organic/natural skin and personal care products. They also sell books and DVDs, aromatherapy products, Therapeutic Products – and, if you are looking for something for someone who has everything – why not organise a gift voucher?  Here is what they say on their website…

“Our organic produce is the cornerstone of our business. At Daintree we have worked hard to bring you the Power of Three… This means that when you unpack your Certified Organic fresh fruit and vegetables, you will most likely be the third person to touch them.

Why is this so important? Simple, fresh produce doesn’t like to travel, it doesn’t like to be handled and it doesn’t like to get hot.

Our boxes are packed in the United Organics warehouse at the Brisbane Markets. Your produce comes from the farm, to their cool rooms. Your order is then picked and packed still inside the cool room and delivered to you the next day. In terms of food miles, that’s one really short trip. In terms of handling, there is the farmer, us and then you.

I did say this business is about you, so we are also offering fresh organic breads, organic meat, poultry, eggs and dairy; as well as a range of nearly 6000 products at a very competitive price. We understand that you want to know who you are dealing with, to introduce myself; my name is Martin Meek, my number is and that’s me at the bottom of the page. “

Delivery Days

Delivery days match perfectly in with our usual guest arrivals – that is Friday and Tuesdays.  Delivery is free for all orders over $60.00 (and we know that won’t be hard to spend once you see the selection!).

All you have to do is have your orders in by 7.30pm Sunday night for a Tuesday delivery, and 7.30pm Wednesday night for Friday Delivery.

About Martin at Daintree Organics

“Martin was one of the founding partners in Queensland’s largest Natural Grocers. Having operated in this environment for nearly 20 years he has a very clear understanding about customer service. We have a 100% Money Back Guarantee that we stand behind.

Daintree Organics understands that it is a privilege to be providing you with your natural and organic needs. It is an honour to be looking after you and we shall endeavour to exceed all of your expectations.”

What more could you ask for – well there is two little details I have missed…. (1) Daintree Organics are Queensland’s only certified organic online retailer – and (2) they deliver to us in Northern NSW!  So, there is no need to go without your favourite organic produce and products when holidaying with us….

…and don’t forget there are some fresh herbs ripe for your picking in our own garden!

Yes, per my blog earlier this week, our Bush Tucker Garden is now open and available for guests.  Not only will our garden continue to build and flourish (we had to start somewhere!) in the meantime we have a great array of fresh herbs available for guests.  These include Rosemary, Thyme, Rocket, Oregano, Parsley, Italian Parsley, Basil, Nasturtiums and Sage..  Our Tropical Garden has been planted as has our Bush Tucker Garden and Tea Garden, and we can’t wait for all these to develop over the coming months and years..  A great reason to return!

..and… if you are looking for a resort-style luxury beachfront holiday home for your family holiday, romantic break  wedding accommodation, (watch our video here), or a girls getaway  contact us at La Maison Pacifique for availability and a quote….  Remember, our rates compare really well with local 5-star resorts – and La Maison Pacifique is private – on the beach – walking distance to cafes at Cabarita Beach – perfect spot for whale watching (June to November each year) – children optional!

Our Bush Tucker Garden is now open!

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!

Local gardener and expert bush tucker enthusiast Dave Perez has inspired us with a design which not only enables functionality as a garden which can produce local bush tucker, tropical fruits, a citrus orchard and tea garden, but is beautiful.  There is also enough lawned space for a game of touch football (and we were delighted to see guests out there recently – including a child in a wheelchair – perfect!)

Our new feature door leads directly from La Maison Pacifique into the garden and offers real privacy and escape for our discerning guests.

Dave tells us that within two years the garden will bear fruit, but if we get some good rains, we are hoping for success even sooner!

The bush tucker garden is in addition to our recently installed herb garden, currently filled with rosemary, rocket, basil, oregano and thyme.  This means that our guests already have the option of picking fresh herbs and create their own gastronomic delights in the well equipped kitchen (with its Miele appliances and including our own steam oven!).

We have really made an effort at La Maison Pacifique to reduce our stamp on the environment.  In conjunction with our garden ideas (allowing us to grow and harvest locally), all bedrooms have ceiling fans, we have wide doors and a myriad of opening windows (perfect for beautiful sea breezes) and our airconditioning systems work on a 3 hour cycle.  Add to this our more than 30 solar panels on the roof, we are very proud of our green capacity building!

As snapshot –  our garden includes:

  • as you walk in the La Maison Pacifique main front gate (with code) the ground cover on your right is oregano
  • the herb boxes contain basil, sage, thyme, rocket and parsley
  • on the right of the door to the bush tucker garden in the base of that garden there is italian parsley and mint
  • in the bush tucker garden you will find rosemary
  • In the tea garden pick some lemon tea plant leaves, put them in a teapot and wait for it to go cold then put ice in and drink – very refreshing
  • The citrus orchard and bush tucker garden sections are at the beachfront of the garden blocks
  • The tropical garden runs along the block fence
  • Pick some fresh nasturtiums leaves or flowers to add a peppery taste to your salads

So, when you do come to stay, don’t forget you will have access to all this fresh, organic produce, able to be picked direct from the garden!

..and… if you are looking for a resort-style luxury beachfront holiday home for your family holiday, romantic break  wedding accommodation, (watch our video here), or a girls getaway  contact us at La Maison Pacifique for availability and a quote….  Remember, our rates compare really well with local 5-star resorts – and La Maison Pacifique is private – on the beach – walking distance to cafes at Cabarita Beach – perfect spot for whale watching (June to November each year) – children optional!

Breakfast at Liliana’s Possum Creek

Breakfast at Liliana’s Possum Creek

Breakfast at Liliana's Possum Creek

Breakfast at Liliana’s Possum Creek

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”

We have found the following information for you from their website:

In March 2012, the 101 year old O’Possum Creek Public School reopened it’s doors to the local community with wonderful food and excellent service, all set amidst remnant rainforest.

Now known as Byrons’ hinterland foodies hotspot, the stunning verandah at Lilianas, allows guests to relax, take in the surrounds and occasionally witness the ‘comings and goings’ of the local Koala population.

The breakfast and lunch menus at Lilianas, evolve with the seasons, and focus where possible on locally grown produce.

With a firm believing that handmade is best, Liliana’s are fortunate to be producing products such as cheese, pasta and condiments.

We also bake daily our own quality breads, cakes and pastries.”

Focussing on breakfast and lunch, Liliana’s has become a firm favourite with locals – from Byron Bay to Kingscliff and the Tweed Coast.  Located just 7 kms from Bangalow (and a 40 minute drive from La Maison Pacifique), Liliana’s is a great place to stop either for breakfast on your way into Bangalow or your way home for lunch after a visit to the ever popular Bangalow Markets (or the eclectic mix of fashion, antiques, restaurants and homeware stores that line the Main Street).

Now, for things to do and see in Bangalow (home of the annual Bangalow Billy Cart Derby), here are some of our favourite businesses:

  • Millar and More – Great designer clothes just opened up in their new premises on 35 Byron Street and including an upstairs section which offers recycled designer clothes
  • Heath’s Old Wares and Collectables – Stock changes almost daily, so you will always be surprised.  However, expect to see: Industrial Antiques, Australian Pottery, Depression Glass, Cane Baskets, Cream Cans, Ladders, Old Tools from the farm and workshop, Garagenalia, Kitchenalia, Books, Light Shades, Arnott’s Tins, Watering Cans, Chairs, Mirrors, Paintings & Prints, wheelbarrows and planter stands……..and on it goes
  • The Cellar Bottleshops – who hold regular wine tastings and fresh flowers & local bread are delivered every Friday

Having said that, any time is a great time to visit Liliana’s – and if you don’t want to stay for lunch, they have a great selection of cakes, pastries and breads (including Gluten free breads) available.

So, what was our choice?  Well, we were a bit late for the breakfast but the Breakfast Degustation menu caught our eye! That is on the list for our next trip!

Our lunch (for two!) was the very impressive Pork tasting plate / pork terrine / salami / prosciutto / condiments / sourdough (can be gf) and Tenterfield lamb puttanesca / house made tagliatelle / olives / capers / anchovies / parmesan / tomato dust.  Fresh, delicious and mouth watering!

..and if you’ve had a great breakfast, skipped lunch and looking for a great place to try for dinner in Bangalow (rounding out your full day trip!) then try The Italian Diner – another local institution and great all year round with the radiant heaters (ridiculously good…) and they have lap blankets too!

Fun Winter Beach Activities

Fun Winter Beach Activities

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.

When the beach is yours, there are no crowds and the weather mild, here are some fun winter beach activities!

  1. The brisk walk along the beach – nothing like it to refresh the mind, soul and spirit and the cool breeze blows your cares away.
  2. Surf’s up.  There are plenty of local surf companies (try Josh Fuller at in2surf)  keen to take you surfing out during winter.  Waves are good and a great opportunity to improve your skills.
  3. Watching the whales go by – spotting them from the shoreline – or high up from Cudgen Headland – and watching these majestic creatures as they make their way up (and down) the coast as part of their winter migration.  Binoculars optional!
  4. Kite flying.  No chance of their not being enough breeze and a great activity for all the family to enjoy (now is probably not the time to tell you about a funny family kite story where we flew a kite so high that the airport authorities paid us a visit! – true story! :-))
  5. Beach cricket/rugby/AFL/Soccer etc etc – beach sport games are still popular in winter – getting your feet wet is optional.
  6. Watching the sunrise/sunset with a warm drink and a moment to pause.  Winter nights produce many spectacular sunrises and sunsets (and lately some great moon shots courtesy of the “Super Moon”).  This is great any time of year.  Even better – bring along friends and nibblies and enjoy it all together.
  7. Fishing is great in winter too.  Watch the tides, bait your hook and cast your rod into the surf.  Tailor is currently biting from Cudgen Headland to Cabarita, bream and jew along the rock walls at the Tweed River mouth, luderick close to the bridges and rock walls and flathead on the ebb tide around the sand banks.
  8. A warm, sunny spot to read is the perfect way to relax on your winter break as well.  Shelter in amongst the dunes or byo shelter and enjoy the fresh air whilst retreating to the world of your favourite book in a perfect location.
  9. A winter swim.  Many “icebergers” or winter swimmers swear by the therapeutic benefits of swimming in the cooler months.  Is it your turn to try?
  10. And don’t forget to build that sandcastle.  With a lesser risk of sunburn (you will be rugged up after all!) play in the sand and build your own creation decorated with shells, moats, driftwood and grasses scavenged from the beach.  A fun activity for all the family and a perfect way to soak up the sun and atmosphere on a perfect winter break.

…and if all else fails (and the weather is really terrible), there is nothing better than visiting the local movie theatre, markets or other attractions, or just curling up by the fire at your own luxury beachfront holiday home

Chances are you may already be enjoying these ideas. I’m glad to share them with you in case you forgot one. Have a great winter!
