I just wanted you to know what a great time we had in Bali. Villa Paradiso was very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. As much as we enjoyed the villa and relaxing by the perfectly maintained grounds and pool, it was your staff that really made it special. What a great group of dedicated and caring people. We cannot say enough about the quality of service and attentiveness. We all fell in love with the ladies at Pazzo Restaurant who went out of their way to make sure we had exceptional service. The food there was so good that we seldom felt the need to visit other restaurants. From the banana pancakes for breakfast to the fresh fish for lunch and dinner, we all were extremely pleased with each meal. Whenever we were ready to venture out, one of the young men from your staff was always available to take us wherever we wanted to go. The location near several world-class diving sites made the entire experience one we will always appreciate. Our entire group looks forward to visiting again in the future.
I have been co-chairing the charity auctions for the San Diego Alzheimer’s Association for six years. I understand the challenge to provide to attendees unique items to purchase that also net a nice profit for the organization. Two years ago, our committee began including villas in Italy and Bali that are managed through Sojourn Ventures Properties. They have proven to be an excellent product that meets both of our goals. Bidding is energetic and people are excited by the notion of traveling to a luxury accommodation the country of their dreams. During the two years, our organization sold a total of fifteen weeks. Approximately half went to Bali, half to Italy. My co-chair and her extended family had an amazing reunion in Cortona, Italy and plan to head to Bali in 2012. My husband and I, along with three other couples spent a week last April at Villa Paradiso located in Amed, Bali. The property is beautiful, very luxurious and spacious. This experience was like none we had ever previously enjoyed. The staff kept the fridge stocked with cold beer and made sure every crazy wish we could come up with came true. We asked to be dropped at the beginning of a hike and picked up a different location. Response, “We can do that.” We wanted a feast for ten on our back patio. We were ridiculously spoiled by week’s end and plotting how to return. On a more practical topic, we found Stacy and Rob to be very easy to work with. They respond in a timely and informative manner. Our organization put no money up front. We were expected to meet their reserve prices only after our event was concluded. They allow two years to use the prize, rather than the customary one year. All of this just took the worry out of including these items in our auctions. I recommend them and Sojourn Ventures Properties without hesitation
Sojourn Ventures offers beautiful properties to enhance our fundraising events. We have worked with the Sojourn Ventures team for a number of years, and Stacey and Rob have been professional, timely in their responsiveness and helpful with our fundraising. All of our guests who have stayed in the Sojourn Ventures properties have been delighted with their experiences. We are grateful to have partners like Sojourn Ventures! Thank you, Stacey and Rob! -Derenda Schubert, Ph.D. Executive Director
"As the director of a small nonprofit that is constantly fundraising, I've had the pleasure of working with Sojourn Ventures for over 5 years now. Working with Stacey and Rob has been easy for us and the packages generate a great return on our investment. I've spoken with many donors (including my in-laws) who have purchased trips to either Italy or Bali and they report that both Stacey and Rob are on point and always go the extra mile to help the traveler feel well taken care of and prepared to travel". – Pete MacFadyen, Executive Director, Big Sky Youth Empowerment, Bozeman, MT
Our House of Portland was delighted to spotlight the Casa San Marco property, presented by Sojourn Ventures, at our 2013 auction. Known for incredible travel experiences, our guests have come to expect exceptional destinations at our auction and Stacey and Rob didn't disappoint! When this package was presented you could feel the energy in the room change - people had been waiting for this opportunity. The bidding was shift and impressive. Thanks to the flexibility of booking we were able to sell four packages resulting in a record breaking Live Auction. Since the event, Stacey and Rob have been a delight to work with and all our supporters who have worked with them and stayed at Casa San Marco only come back with praises. At Our House, we cannot wait to work to Sojourn Ventures again and offer even more exciting travel packages for our guests.
