DH has friends arriving next Easter.
Long story short we are butting heads about where to go with them for a 4-5 day break over the Easter holidays.
They have no kids and don't really understand the restrictions and limitations children bring. Their suggestions are making me anxious!
I want a break too, I don't fancy being worried sick for the kids safety (Bali) or being the out-of-house-cook and cleaner all week either. (camping)
The only compromise made so far is that we drive somewhere for the get away, no flights, and book somewhere via Air BnB.
But I have no clue where.
My kids are fine with a few hours play on the beach or in a playground.
They don't need anything too hectic (Goldcoast) in fact it's best not to over stimulate them if they're to last the whole trip without turning rogue!
Ideally I'd like a nice apartment or house somewhere within walking distance (or short drive) to the beach for the kids/friends during the day.
But also to have something else interesting to do, aquariums or bush walks or museums? Sight seeing? Anything that we can all do together but also, that this couple can take off and do by themselves should the kids be burnt out.
I'm not from here so anything I look up is the tourist version of what to do, and I know from working with the tourist crowd back home that those things aren't the real deal.
The beach doesn't have to be part of it either, I'm willing to go inland too.
Open to everything really.
Any help would be appreciated. X
