Who We Are
We found the Fountain of Youth!
At least that’s what it feels like… a place where kids can be kids, adults can be kids, the spontaneous can be impetuous, the adventurous can go wild and for the relaxers… well time can stand still.
Growing up along the Wild Coast as a holiday maker for the last 35years, I quite simply could not deny the calling any longer! The Wild Coast needed to become our home. Thankfully, without too much convincing, my wife and I relocated to the area with our little girl in 2018, trading in our city slicker lifestyles for a little Wild Coast loving.
With over 20 years of Hospitality and Corporate Marketing experience, I truly understand how important a good holiday is for the soul and with our in-depth knowledge and love for where we live, you are in good hands!
We look forward to sharing the spoils and splendours, the incredibly rich heritage and culture, amazingly passionate hoteliers and accommodation owners and the unique experiences that only the Wild Coast has to offer.
Our Southern Right mates are with us for most of the year and they love a good frolic!
