Christmas

Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere is all about long sunny days and relaxing by the water with family and friends without having to lift your recently manicured finger. See the look on the kids’ faces when Santa visits on Christmas Day, presents in tow. Enjoy delicious Christmas fare at lunch and dinner, and don’t worry about the clean up-we've recruited some elves to help.
