South Coast Luxury Accommodation - Our Story

The 1970s of my youth was characterised by a mum who didn't work, and had time for all three of us in spades. Life was slower, with family dinners and watching TV shows together being commonplace.

Fast forward to the noughties, and the world is a very different place. 'Stressed', 'time-poor', 'over-worked', and 'not enough hours in the day' are common parlance.

I got married and moved to the UK, where I spent 14 (chilly) years. Our daughter was born there and we ran several different businesses in that time. You have to be really organised as a working parent, and we probably don't give ourselves enough credit for all we do and achieve each day.

But ... we also know instinctively that taking time out to relax, enjoy time with friends and family, take a break from routine, and escape the stressors of daily life is vitally important to both our physical and mental well-being.

When we moved back from the UK, we made a conscious decision not to live in a big city, and it's a decision we haven't regretted. We're now busy running this family business, but the pace of our lives here is slower.

I totally 'get' the short-on-time scenario, but I have learned how important it is to calm the inner and outer chaos by reconnecting with your soul.

Indulge in the stuff that makes life worth living, whatever that may be for you.

I'll leave you with one of my favourite quotes, with which I couldn't agree more!

"I have never believed that vacations are luxuries. They are our necessities - just like shelter, clothes, and food, they make us feel like humans and not like animals that care only for survival."
