I have stayed at two resorts through DAE, The Voyager and Club Paihia. I loved both of them!
Voyager, in the heart of the Gold Coast, Australia, it is the ideal spot if you do not want to rent a car. It is the perfect location for relaxation, shopping, public transport, cafes, restaurants, supermarket. I LOVED my stay there!
The Resort was nice and clean and tidy, great size for 2 Adults, nice swimming pool.
Club Paihia, New Zealand…… I loved staying there too! (Just love holidays!...We hear you Karen ). Great location, nice bush walk at the Resort, lovely units with nice deck per unit. Good walking distance to beach, town centre etc. Personally, a week in the Bay of Islands is just the perfect length of time to stay.
The other type of holiday I love is cruises… I’ve done a few of these and can highly recommend them to anyone that likes doing nothing. We have another one booked for July this year (35 of us).
