Goodwill Getaways are able to provide incredible holidays and experiences,
in sublime destinations all around the world.
Formed in 2009, Goodwill Getaways has progressively sought to improve their quality of accommodations and services, providing holidays only in private villas. Guests are pampered at a level not able to be provided by ‘mass-market’ Hotels or Resorts. The majority of our villas incorporate private pools, airport transfers (for example, in Bali, guests can take advantage of private vehicles with drivers), villa managers, supervisors and the feeling of space and luxury not easily found in the industry.
With the improvements Goodwill Getaways are continually making, your stay won’t be one of ‘experimentation’, but of relaxation, discovery and enjoyment. With well over 1,000 different groups of guests staying in our Goodwill Getaways properties each year, you can be rest assured that you will be staying with a vastly experienced ‘Holiday-maker’.
There should be no surprises standing in the way of your perfect Goodwill Getaways experience.

How Goodwill Getaways works
For Event Organisers
Auction Items Made Easy
Below is the easy process we provide here at Goodwill Getaways enabling you to offer experiences with no risk
Choose from over 200 unique Experiences and use “your Suitcase” to select packages you think would have the broadest appeal amongst your donors. Our team of Fundraising Specialists are on hand to help you figure out which travel packages are best fit your audience.
You will only purchase the Experiences that sell at your event, meaning you can sell each package as many times as you want. Every dollar you raise above the Nonprofit Cost goes directly to your bottom line.
After your event, tell us how many times you sold each package, then enter the names and emails of your winning bidders. Once payment for the Experiences has been received, redemption vouchers will automatically be sent to your winners.
As soon as winners receive their vouchers, they can begin redeeming their Experience. We take care of everything, from booking the trip, down to every last detail, to ensure that your most important patrons are raving about their Experience at your next event!
The cleaning staff were excellent, our Villa Manager was great and the rest of the staff were exceptional, they really made it a wonderful experience and I would go back again for a second holiday!
Transfers were perfect, The villa was spotless & The Chef was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. We all enjoyed the stay very much and it all went off without a hitch. Would like stay again and will let others know what a great time we had.
I cannot think of anything that needs improving. The staff were wonderful and very friendly. They did everything in their power to make our stay enjoyable and the facilities were superb!
The Villa was very clean. All rooms and areas were cleaned everyday. The Villa and all staff were just amazing. I loved every moment and really do not have anything negative to bring up. Absolutely loved it!! Didn’t want to leave.
We had an incredible time at Bali Paadi Villa and were completely spoilt. The house is beautiful, peaceful and offered the perfect place for us to relax.
We'd score the whole experience in the "excellent" categories, we had a great time and Gus and his team were wonderful, the free wi-fi and a laptop was great because you could look at the occasional news website and not feel completely out of the loop, but could ignore my emails and phone. Katut the chef was tremendous and led a lovely team, put simply the villa is superb and we are very keen to go back again!
The pool and gardens were lovely. The open plan living areas were comfortable. The beds were comfortable and we really liked the mosquito nets. The kitchen staff not only cleaned up after meals, they did all the extra dishes we used at night after dinner or during the day. It was a real holiday! Staff were always smiling and willing to make us as comfortable as we could be. Gus kept saying that we shouldn't worry about anything, just enjoy yourselves in the villa. Gus could put us in touch with anything we needed eg. motorbike hire and he had some good restaurant suggestions ie Taulan Warung was excellent and Global Warung near by. We would certainly recommend it to others!
My Family had a great time staying at the Bali Paadi Villa. Weather was just right. All the staff was excellent, truly excellent. I have absolutely no complaint.
The rooms were in the Bali Paadi villa are beautiful and the bathrooms divine. I really felt like a princess staying there and I wish I could have stayed longer. I travel a lot and I think that this was without a doubt one of the nicest places I have stayed in. Everything was just so lovely. Your on-site manager is also very nice and helpful and always tries to find answers and solutions to guests needs. I loved this villa and so did all my friends who came with me!
This trip for some was a first to Bali. Goodwill getaways made it amazing. From not knowing what to expect, we were delighted and amazed by the staffs expertise and friendliness. The personnel looked after us from the time we arrived at the airport, Nyoman picked us at the airport to Ketut and her staff welcoming us at the villa. They all made us feel welcome and safe, The staff were always helpful and available to answer any query we had. The villa property was kept in good condition and was very clean. I definitely would recommend this holiday to my friends and since returning have not stopped talking about it. Well done to Goodwill Getaways, I enjoyed my stay .
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for a most incredible holiday we had during our stay at Villa Joglo! (13-21 May 2012). In doing so I have to make special mention of the staff working with Made, the manager. They went out of their way to make every experience a true Balinese experience. Every day was filled with excitement and I dont think I have laughed so much in my life! Their service and commitment to the guest were exceptional! We promised ourselves that we will be back!
It was an enjoyable stay, the staff were friendly and the property was beautifully maintained. Excellent presentation. The housekeepers were especially friendly and welcoming. They made our stay delightful.
We were absolutely delighted with our accommodation while in Bali and with the standard of service we received from the entire team at Goodwill Getaways. The Villa was an outstanding holiday venue and all of the staff were incredibly gracious and attentive to our every need. The transport that was provided was outstanding and Ka-Tut our driver was a terrific guy and a great local guide. We would love to stay with the team in the Joglo villa again in the future!
This property was unbelievable! It exceeded our expectations and some more. The property was well maintained, clean and made our holiday that more relaxing. We could not highly commend these staff enough. All staff were wonderful to us and so friendly, we felt like we were leaving family when we said goodbye. Our House Manager Martin was a delight to deal with and nothing was ever too much trouble. We had the best holiday staying at Bali Joglo, some of the group were a little sceptical of coming to Bali but I think they will all be returning in the near future and we would love to go back to Bali Joglo again and visit our friends and stay at this wonderful establishment!
The Property was absolutely first class and was ideal for our group. The staff at the Villa were amazing. The housekeeping was better than any hotel I have ever stayed in. The cooking was divine! Martin, Katut, Arik, Mede, Nyoman and Dewa - our bali family were fantastic, they made the stay as enjoyable as it was. Katuts cooking was 5 star. We truly had a great holiday. The villa was great for us with the baby, and the older family it suited as well. We had a great holiday, thank you Alex in Sydney for booking the trip and your communication leading up to our holiday. Thanks to Martin the villa manager and the staff for making our holiday so enjoyable and care free. Time to start saving for that next holiday!
We loved our villa manager, driver, chef, wait staff, and cleaners. Everyone did an amazing job and I will recommend this property highly. We all hope to get back there one day!
We had the most wonderful holiday thanks to Nyoman and his team at Bali Villa VV. We were treated with the perfect combination of warmth and professionalism. Nyoman gave us terrific suggestions for restaurants and attractions that were perfect for our family. He and his team also managed, very successfully, to strike the tricky balance between respecting our privacy and always being around when we needed help. We really loved our stay there and have already raved about Bali Villa VV on Twitter (I have 27,000 followers worldwide) and on Facebook (14,000 friends Worldwide.) As an Australian television celebrity I am often asked to recommend holiday destinations in Travel sections of our major newspapers and will continue to have no hesitation in suggesting Bali Villa VV. We loved our stay.
Our Villa VV was very clean and the staff very pleasant. It was a fairly new property at the time of our stay. No problem with cleanliness, still in good condition due to age of Villa. The staff were always willing to assist if any problem arose. Very courteous and friendly staff members, the villa manager was very knowledgeable and willing to assist wherever possible. We were able to contact the villa manager at any time for assistance and was willing to go out of his way to help. Overall a very pleasant and enjoyable stay and the mobile phone is a very good service, as being able to contact the villa manager was very beneficial to our group.
The villa was very impressive! The design, cleanliness and quality surpassed my expectations. The booking process was easy and staff members were able to answer any questions I had prior to arrival promptly via email. The housekeeping services were excellent. All staff were very polite and accommodating. They were able to answer our questions, arrange drivers and taxis, and very prompt with our requests. The house manager was also really helpful when one of the guests was unwell. I very much enjoyed the holiday! Everyone was really friendly and the villa was really luxurious and relaxing. I loved staying at the villa and would definitely recommend it to others.
The Bali Villa VV was absolutely beautiful and we loved it. Every day the villa was attended to by all of the wonderful house staff. Nyoman helped us with reservations, transport and gave us great advice. We would like to thank them all for making our stay an incredible experience. We had an overall awesome time and are definitely coming back to the Villa VV, everything was perfect. Thank you.
Nyoman and his team did a wonderful job assisting us through many questions and needs on our first visit to Bali. I was very happy with the team, accommodation, location and effort by all! Thank you very much.
Absolutely fantastic! Everyone was very helpful. The position of the villa was in a great place, walking distance to the beach and great restaurants. The villa was kept very clean and the staff were very very helpful. We felt very safe in the villa. We will be returning very soon l hope!
I want you to know it was one of the best holidays I have had. Nyoman and his Staff were fantastic. I just can’t believe how good they were. Very helpful, professional and friendly. Nothing was a bother. They contributed so much to us having a perfect holiday. My god we could do with staff like them in our business. The villa was perfect as was the location. The layout, the garden, the pool, the staff, the location, the privacy was absolutely 100%! Well done!
The staff could not have been more friendly lovely people!
The staff and help we received was just wonderful. We felt very welcome, special and just loved the villa and service offered. Thank you so much!
Above and beyond any service we have ever received. We gave feedback at the villa regarding our wonderful staff especially Yogi the villa supervisor and Wayan the driver. Both of these staff members are invaluable to your business and went well beyond the call of duty and well above what we could have ever anticipated. Thank you
We arrived at Reef Resort at night to a very friendly reception. Our villa was near one of the pools, which are great to swim in as there are little waterfalls and caves, and plenty of depths to suit the kids. The restaurant serves a great breakfast and the dinner menu is first class. If you don't want to eat out every night, there are plenty of very good barbecues with an outdoor eating area. Our main bedroom had ample space, enough to fit the baby-cot, as well as a change table, tv and couch. The kitchen was very useful and was attached to the living/tv area. We had a great stay at Rendezvous and would recommend it to anyone.
We all had such a wonderful time! The Villa was absolutely gorgeous and one of the definite highlights was the amazing seafood platter from 'On the Inlet' - great recommendation!
The Villa was really great, our villa manager was very helpful in assisting us with requests. It was a super place and would love to go back for another stay!
The overall condition of the property and its features exceeded our expectations. The lovely tropical setting was also ideal to relax and unwind in. The cleanliness and housekeeping services were excellent and Ben was extremely helpful and willing to meet any needs or answer any queries. I don't think it could have been improved. The villa, its location and the helpfulness of the staff far exceeded all of our expectations. Thank you so much, to you and your staff, for what was my best holiday experience ever!
The Sanctuary villa in Port Douglas, was absolutely excellent. It was beautiful throughout the villa and the house supervisor Ben assisted us with any enquiries. Overall we had such a lovely time that we would love to live there!
We were very happy and had a wonderful week at the Sanctuary villa in Port Douglas. The villa was kept very clean and tidy and our house supervisor was very helpful. We would love to come at stay in the villa again in the future!
The villa manager was extremely helpful, thoughtful and delightful to deal with and he also anticipated interest and provisions. A really wonderful stay in Port Douglas overall!
The villa manager was very informative and helpful. He provided us with more than adequate information. He was also very warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived until the moment we departed from the villa. The villa was excellent, housekeeping was excellent while the property was presented clean and smelt very nice.
Prior to arrival we were informed well in advance and the communication with the Goodwill Getaways was spot on! We had our own rental car, therefore the villa manager's directions were a breeze. The features and condition of the property was well above our expectations and definitely rated No 1 in our books. We visit Port Douglas every year and always make a point of staying in different accommodation but when we return again, we will book Sanctuary without a doubt. Everything was spot on and couldn't have asked for anything cleaner and more sustainable. We really loved the house manager Ben, he catered to our every need and was so nice, friendly and easy to get along with. Our experience was amazing, who would want to go to Europe when you have Port Douglas and the Sanctuary villas to visit here in Australia. I will enter every competition to try to win a trip back to your gorgeous accommodation!
We loved it and couldn't fault it! The cleaner was both efficient and thoroughly charming, we just simply couldn't fault the stay in any way. It may not appeal to everyone, but the provision of bikes would have been a nice touch.
We had such a wonderful time at the Sanctuary Villa in Port Douglas, we have recommended the venue to all our friends and colleagues!
The booking was done over the internet and all necessary information was forwarded before our trip. It was very well organised. Tony was fabulous. He had everything organised for us, had arranged trips, car the whole holiday. It could not have been easier. He was always a phone call away and was more than willing to help whenever he could. An absolute resort, beautiful. Everyone was jealous when we showed our pictures. Have recommended and will definitely go again.
Our entire holiday in Villa No 37 was perfect in every way and our Property Manager Mr Tony Seale was outstanding in arranging everything for us before arriving, whilst staying and on departure. The family will remember this holiday as the best they have had.
The property was brilliant and Tony Seale, the property manager, could not have been more friendly or more helpful. Everything was as expected/anticipated; the property is absolutely first class/world class
Our overall experience throughout this trip was that the facilities were outstanding. The staff were very friendly and responsive. We would certainly recommend this to anyone and definitely look to buy a similar trip in future
A wonderful place to stay. Apartments were fully self-contained with everything you would need. A beautiful pool area with spa inside a cave and waterfall. Staff were always friendly and very helpful with information about day trips and tour bookings. Food in the restaurant was very nice and not too pricey, which was good.
It was a mystery destination to us and we enjoyed the experience very much. We often used the gym which we found excellent and the lap pool also. The tennis courts were good except in the morning when they were wet from the water sprinklers. Staff were very helpful and attentive to our needs.
Thank you very much we had a great time, was perfect weather, very nice resort, the rooms were great. All good!
Great villa - perfect for our size family and children's ages and requirements. Have highly recommended the accommodation and travel agent to friends looking to holiday in the area
We had an absolute ball! The service from start to finish was impeccable. Spotless upon our arrival. Leanne, the villa manager was very accommodating and amazing to deal with. We will return!!
We had a wonderful weekend away. The Lodge was fantastic and we all enjoyed our stay. There were so much space for all of us and great service and facilities
It was a great place to stay especially as we are golfers. The separate living areas were great as it meant we didn't feel in top of each other, a TV for footy, one for a kids movie and still a quiet lounge with a fire the perfect place for a game of cards or curling up with a good book
