The BEST Family Getaway You Deserve – At Wyndham Extra Holidays Resort

Hey Mama! Yes… YOU! Why don’t you take a little breather and sit down for a minute! You absolutely deserve it!

Life is so stinkin’ busy this time of year and it’s easy to get wrapped in our day to day lives doing the same thing…running the same errands…cleaning up the same messes….and stressing about the same worries. But today I want you to sit back and think about something you have been dreaming of and maybe even make it become a reality!

A few weeks ago I found myself in this exact situation. Feeling a bit overwhelmed with my “mom life” and needed a GETAWAY! After browsing through the internet and looking for a place to escape, I found it! I found the place that looked perfect for our little family to escape reality for a minute and to just enjoy EACH OTHER.

That was when I stumbled across Wyndham Extra Holidays and all of their beautiful beach front properties! Hawaii…Florida…South Carolina…they looked incredible, but a bit too far for this specific quick getaway and added them to our list of travels for the future. And then i saw it… Wyndham Oceanside Pier Resort, California. 


We packed our bags and had the TIME of our lives. In fact, we loved it SO much that I have to share with you a few of our very favorite things about the beautiful resort and even a killer deal that is going on RIGHT NOW just for you and your fam to getaway!

While we were there we got TONS of questions on Instagram about our IG stories so today I am going to try to answer ALL of the most frequently asked questions all in one place, so you can come back to this article again and again when you are ready to book your vacation!

So without further ado, let’s get into your questions to help you plan the BEST family getaway that you absolutely deserve with Wyndham Extra Holidays!

#1 LOCATION: This specific resort is located RIGHT across the street from the Oceanside Pier and beach! The views are absolutely breathtaking and you really can’t beat the location! It was just a walk away from yummy restaurants, the pier, a park on the beach and of course my personal fave…shopping! 😉 Also a quick 6 mile drive to LEGO Land and even less to other fun “touristy” attractions in the area!

#2 THE ROOM: The rooms are absolutely beautiful – we booked the 2 bedroom unit that had a King size bed, a Queen size bed, a pull out sofa in the living room, 2 bathrooms AND a full kitchen – stocked with EVERYTHING you could ever need! It was nice to have the option of making meals in the kitchen and heating bottles for the babe! We also utilized the dining table for just about every breakfast and dinner! Since we were so exhausted by the end of the day – it was nice to be able to eat in the hotel room with our kids! The room had a beautiful view of the ocean and pier, with a balcony that Tys and I got to sit on after the kids went to sleep and enjoy a little mom and dad time while listening to the waves crash – hello SO heavenly!

#3 RESORT ACTIVITIES: To be honest, we wish we could have stayed longer! We felt like there was TOO much to do in just 3 days! We got there as early as possible and left as late as possible – we wanted to soak in ALLLLL the time we could! There is a full activities center where we enjoyed complimentary ice cream sundaes and other yummy treats like caramel apples with movies – there’s also a game room with a pool table and air hockey – not to mention the pool, fitness room, sauna and beautiful sky room! We were racing from one thing to the next wanting to soak it all in!

#4 NEARBY THINGS TO DO: Ummm… I feel like this should be a post in itself and I will probably have part two of this article coming soon that I will link up here for you about Oceanside in general! We had an incredible time making memories at Oceanside Adventures Whale Watching and LEGO Land!


Oceanside Adventures was one of the most amazing experiences! We were a little nervous taking our littles – not sure how they would react being on a boat in the middle of the ocean for two hours – but they were AMAZING and it ended up being my five-year old’s “favorite thing ever!” She was THRILLED to see several pods of dolphins and beautiful whales swimming right by us! The weather was perfect and she couldn’t wait to go back to school to tell all of her friends! We HIGHLY recommend checking out Oceanside Adventures to book a whale watching excursion while there!

In addition, LEGO Land was a dream of COURSE! We will also have a full blog post about LEGO Land coming to you soon to answer specific questions about that. But in the meantime, it was such a fun way to spend the day as a family! I would say the park is best for ages 3-10, although our one year old loved his life just being outside and enjoying the fun things that were there for him to climb on. 😉 The funnel cake and the apple fries {thank you to all you Besties on Instagram that suggested!!} were absolutely DELICIOUS and are #BestieMUSTS while there!
