There’s no denying that renting a fully-equipped holiday home is by far the best way for families, or groups of friends, to enjoy a superlative Gold Coast vacation. Having all the comforts and conveniences of home, in a superbly stunning Queensland location, makes for truly relaxing and hassle-free days. Not only do you have the option of self-catering whilst still having the best restaurants, cafes and bars outside your front door, but you’ll also have a plethora of space at your disposal.
Of course…not all holiday homes are created equal. This is why choosing the right property, in the right location, is so important.
Where to stay:
Wynnum and Manly are often rated as two of Brisbane’s most idyllic nooks. The activities on offer here for both active and leisurely visitors, are near endless. With a stunning 5km stretch of waterfront promenade to walk, jog or cycle on; an array of water-sport activities to enjoy and a wide selection of fantastic eateries, pubs and clubs; these two beachfront suburbs are an ideal destination for all those who want to enjoy the very best Queensland has to offer.
Both suburbs are only 25 minutes to the CBD and just over an hour north of the Gold Coast Airport, and offer some of the best holiday rental properties in Queensland. Although public transport abounds in the area, the option of renting a car for the duration of your stay would certainly benefit the independent and budget-conscious visitor. Reaching the best attractions, natural havens and most popular shopping strips is an absolute breeze from both Wynnum and Manly.
Best properties to rent:
Wynnum Manly Hideaway offers three brilliant holiday homes in various locations around the Moreton Bay area. Each home is delightfully furnished, sleeps up to 6 people (more on demand) and includes a fenced-in garden (ideal for kids and pets), air-conditioning (heaven sent in the height of summer) and cable TV (for hard to impress teenagers!) Each home has a distinctive charm, choice of amenities and room layout, yet they all enjoy a superlative location close to the esplanade, beach, pools, restaurants and shops.
What to do in and around Wynnum and Manly:
Aside from enjoying sundowners on your own private deck overlooking the bay, going for walks, swims and shopping trips, both Wynnum and Manly offer a selection of fantastic day trips both on land…and water! Spend days sailing gorgeous Moreton Bay aboard a yacht, sailing ship or catamaran, take sunset cruises along the Brisbane River or take the kids on exhilarating rides in the Gold Coast’s most famous fun parks. The famous Heritage Trail, which takes in the area’s most important sites, will also satisfy the curiosity of history and culture aficionados.
Are you lover of markets? Then ensure your stay includes a week-end! That’s when the Manly Harbour Village really comes alive with local artists and farmers setting up stalls and offering some of the best produce and most unique crafts you’ll likely to find anywhere in Queensland.
