Twenty four years and thousands of happy memories later, however, they’re now ready to chase down their next adventure – my moving back to the mainland and becoming “professional grandparents.”

But why choose such an unconventional method?  “We’ve felt so privileged to act as stewards of this tropical paradise for 15 years, and since we like to do things differently – we once raised over $45,000 through crowd-funding to have solar panels installed in the resort – we realised a raffle would be an exciting and world-first way to pass on the resort’s ownership,” explained owner and manager Doug Beitz.

“Rather than sell this precious oasis to the highest bidder, we thought it would be amazing to make someone’s dream come true,” Beitz continued. “If you’re discontented with your life, you’re looking for something new, you want to be adventurous, take a shot”
