Feature-packed valley resort

From  an 18-hole championship golf course and nine tennis courts to a four acre sustainable vineyard with bee apiary, this resort has plenty for all.

A lovely place with individual 2 room cabins.

Grandborough, United Kingdom

A really nice place with excellent cabins. Real fireplace and cosy decor. Very close to a multitude of restaurants and cafes, but Ocean Avenue can be a bit of a climb after fine food and wine! Great outdoor spaces too.

a proposal weekend

first off this place is absolutely 5 stars. the service from the entire staff is incredible, and when i say entire staff i mean THE entire staff is wonderful, everyone from management to the groudskeepers will say hello and how you're enjoying your stay etc. If you take the time to chat with them they'll tell you about some of their favorite spots and cool tings to do on and off the property. Now this weekend was extra special because i planned on proposing to my long time girlfriend. As a guy who has no idea what he's doing and having never been here before it was extremely challenging to set everything up. Their guest relations manager, Michelle Gervacio was amazing! The service started way before we even got to the property. Since my job keeps me rather busy i wasn't able to talk and plan on the phone so we did everything via e-mail, for 2 weeks she took the time to explain all the possible locations and times to set up my proposal. She was patient with me as i changed my mind a few times going back and forth on ideas and making changes as we went along, she also gave me honest feedback about some of my ideas and was realistic as to what's doable and not doable. this was very appreciated. She connected me with several local photographers and ended up working with one that was very familiar with the property and helped me in even greater detail, and he went above and beyond his duties to help me. These people truly care about their guests and the people they recommend and work with have the same enthusiasm. This enthusiasm trickles down their staff, waiters who helped us on another would stop by to say hello and how we're enjoying our trip etc. I can't thank Michelle enough for all her help. This place is absolutely wonderful and we managed to make it an incredible memory.
