peep this retro motel on the gold coast
It’s a great southern-Australian tradition: as soon as the cold snap hits, winter-hating, frost-bitten folk start eyeing off tickets to someplace sunny. This year’s primo destination? The Gold Coast. We have to admit we’re a little biased in this decision – you see, Palm Beach, Gold Coast, happens to be home to the Mysa Motel. If you love retro aesthetics, pastels and neon signs, this boutique motel will be right up your alley. The dreamy establishment features seven rooms (some with courtyards) and a swish, magnesium mineral pool (ooh! ahh!). Plus, the whole place is powered by solar energy, with rainwater tanks used for toilets and gardens. Eye-pleasing and nice to the environment – how awesome is that?
