The Villas at The Welk is the Perfect Getaway

"The check-in was smooth (it was around 7:30 pm) and no hassles from the Sales Desk. The Unit was huge, and very well kept. Was it refurbished? No idea, but the view was awesome! We looked out at a huge fishing lake with 2 fountains. Beautiful resort. Yes, it's huge, but easy to get around if you can read signs."

Great property for families!

"We have stayed here twice now and will definitely return. There is a lot to do on site between pools, golf (try sling golf if you have young kids), and other bookable activities... and we are able to balance family fun with relaxation. We love that the units have full kitchens and laundry. The property is 30-60min away from other area activities like legoland and seaworld, and even closer to the safari park."
