We cannot say ENOUGH great things about Roche! The staff 10000% credited for our great time - they were amazing and more than a few times went above and beyond to take care of us!! The food was FREAK OUT AMAZING!! We are still getting calls from guests who were saying they can't WAIT to go back and visit just to have more of that seafood!! Also, the veggie risotto, grilled prawns, prime rib sliders... drooool!! We love you Roche Harbor!!!
I just returned from an incredible weekend at Roche Harbor happy landings house! I hosted a VIP retreat for my top leaders, and we had the best time! I highly recommend this unit for up to six people, and next year we will be booking two houses for 12 attendees! The house was comfortable and right in the heart of all the activities!
