Northern Beaches Mum Louise got the opportunity to head to NRMA Sydney Lakeside Holiday Park with her family. If you are looking for a getaway with the family that is close to home, look no further than NRMA Sydney Lakeside Holiday Park…
We were in need of a well earned break, but not wanting to go to far and with the kids having sport on Saturday, which was impacting our weekends, we decided to visit the NRMA Sydney Lakeside Holiday Park at Narrabeen for a change of scenery.
We booked a Lakeview villa which overlooks the water. The villa is a good size, it was spotless and had a well equiped kitchen. The beds were really comfortable and as it was quiet, we all slept well there.
There was a barbecue on the balcony so we had a nice relaxing night on the balcony. There are cabins and a campsite too, so you have a range of accomodation to chose from. The villa has parking for 2 cars which was great so my husband could take the kids to their usual sport on Saturday morning as we were close to home. Then I was able to have a few hours to myself to relax.
On the Saturday afternoon we sat down by the water. The water is so shallow at the lake so the kids can hop in there and they are safe. Whilst the kids were playing for hours we could relax by the waters edge on the sand, reading, had a few wines whilst quickly shooting backwards and forwards to the villa for whatever we needed.
The waterpark was a hit with the kids who would have stayed hours playing there if we had more time. There are also bikes that you can hire and the park runs movie nights and other activities to keep the kids busy.
It’s a stroll to the beach where there is a great rock pool which again the kids would have stayed at for hours on the Sunday morning.
Within, I’d say, 600m there are a really great selection of cafes and restaurants, all with great food, coffee and cocktails!
We loved the weekend, we had so much fun together as a family. It was great to get the kids to spend quality time with us rather than sitting in their rooms at home.
We felt a million miles away from home – not a 20 minute drive! In fact we enjoyed it so much we are booking to go back in the school holidays.
