Mums. They do everything they can to support us, and we often find it hard on Mother’s Day to show them exactly how much they mean to us. If you’re frantically trying to come up with ideas for gifts for Mum (or your wife) this year, it may be time to enter this incredible competition so she can win the holiday of a lifetime.
One winner will be given two nights of sole and exclusive use of the incredible heart-shaped Makepeace Island, worth a huge $10,300. You’ll be able to use any of the accommodation on the island, including the private villa where Sir Richard Branson (owner of the island) stays when he’s visiting.
Bring your swimsuit, since you can also use all of the facilities, water-sports and activities on the island. You’ll also enjoy a cruise on the lake at sunset, a yummy gourmet picnic (on a secluded beach of course), with professional managers who are there to look after you and make sure you have everything you need.
Mum will be given a complimentary bottle of delicious French champagne, and you won’t need to worry about actually getting to the island since the prize includes return airport transfers from Maroochydore or Noosa. River transfers between Makepeace Island, Northshore beaches, Noosa Heads, Lake Cooroibah and the marina are also included.
Makepeace Island is a huge 25 acres, and you’ll be sure to enjoy the massive pool, which holds 500,000 litres of water. If you want to get active there are plenty of activities waiting for you, including a full-sized tennis court, kayaks and other water activities, or you can relax and spend time in the indoor bar, use the spa facilities or chill in the theatre.
Maybe you’ll decide to eat a delicious lunch on your own secluded beach, before playing with the stand-up boards, Hobie cats and kayaks, or perhaps you’ll leave the kids to their own devices in the games room while dad goes fishing and mum has a swim in the lagoon before enjoying her champagne and a good book in a Balinese teak daybed.
At dinner, you can all regroup and talk about your day while you eat a perfectly prepared dinner on board the private launch. After dessert and a few cocktails, you can choose whether you want to watch a movie or two in the private theatre or ask your professional hosts to convert the garden into an incredible outdoor cinema with cosy lounges and popcorn.
Send the kids to bed and have another drink in the massive 15-person spa, get an early night in your private villa or soak in the incredible bath which has been carved from the boulder of a volcano.
What you do over the two days is up to you, but you’re guaranteed to have a holiday you’ll never forget. You have to be in it to win it though, so don’t forget to enter the competition today. Good luck!
