After 13 years of running Duvauchelle Holiday Park in New Zealand‘s Banks Peninsula, Kaye and Ken Bramley are hitching up their motorhome and heading for the road, a report said.
The couple operated the Christchurch City Council-owned waterside holiday park through thick and thin. However, they have handed over the reins to the new management team so that they can retire.
Kaye says they had a blast operating the park with 122 campsites, tourist cabins, and flats. However, she believes it’s now time to leave and live a more comfortable life.
“We’re both passionate about what we do and have really enjoyed it.”
“We’ve always treated the holiday park as our home and everybody coming to stay as our guests.”
Kaye says that while it’s difficult to say goodbye to Duvauchelle Holiday Park, it was comforting to know that the new management team is determined to keep their customer-focused strategy in managing the park.
The new group consists of Dale Hayes, Tracy MacLeod, and her husband, Kylee. All have previous campground experience.
City council president for recreation, sport and special events Nigel Cox said the Bramleys had done an outstanding job managing Duvauchelle Holiday Park over the last 13 years.
“The fact that customer satisfaction is sitting at 100 percent is testament to Kaye and Ken’s warm, friendly approach to managing the park”
“We appreciate all they have done and wish them the best for their retirement,” Cox said.
