Fantastic Group Weekend Destination

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at Island Bay Ranch. With 8 families and children ranging from toddlers to teens, there was something for everyone to do and lots of space to roam. Having exclusive use of the property meant the adults could relax and not worry about where the kids were and the kids loved the freedom. With such large indoor spaces, the weather didn't bother us and everyone agreed it was a fantastic destination.

Natalie was great to deal with and we'll definitely be back again.

Girls Getaway

We absolutely loved our stay! The facilities are fantastic and so well equipped with everything you need. We loved the spa and sitting by the pool after a round of tennis. The surrounding area is so peaceful it's hard not to relax and unwind. Can't wait to come back!

Perfect venue for extended family annual get together. Accommodation and facilities suited 14 adults and 4 children with plenty of room. Kids loved the trampoline and play equipment and the pool and spa were idyllic. Kitchen facilities more than catered for our needs. Plenty of outdoor games provided to pass the time. Very professional management. Can't wait to stay again.
