Resort Team Spotlight


We’ve always known love tends to grow here but in this case, literally.   Meet Carmen our Head Groundskeeper and Adley, her Assistant. 

They met at Pacific Sands in October 2007 and quickly discovered they shared a passion for more than just landscaping.  Recently engaged in Thailand, they’re getting married this coming winter.  Clearly they dig each other!

Congratulations Carmen and Adley, we’re excited for you both.
