In addition to the clean and spacious room, the beautifully landscaped grounds, and the gourmet dinner served in the open pavillion with a night view of the city, we were impressed with the heart and soul of Onsea House. Many of the staff are young adults from very challenging circumstances who are taught everything from personal care to customer service to restaurant skills in an effort to give them the opportunity to create a better life for themselves. When my cellphone was not working properly, the young concierge did his best to help me. And when that failed, the owner gave me the hotel phone to use in order to contact my provider. The owner also arranged for us to visit a nearby school, with which they have a charitable connection, in order to deliver supplies we brought with us specifically for that purpose. A perfect combination- a nice touch of luxury with the opportunity to give back.
