Meet Sandbanks Vacations

Your vacation time is precious.
Don’t leave it up to chance.
It all started with a cottage…
When his wife Kerry told him she loved Wellington, Sandbanks Vacations founder Richard Barrett knew just what to do – buy her a cottage! Little did he know at the time, but that cottage would become the foundation for Sandbanks Vacations.

Starting with 21 East, Richard created Sandbanks Vacations from the ground up. He had traveled extensively for work and finally discovered that the most beautiful place in the world was right here in his backyard – Prince Edward County.

Since Sandbanks Vacations was founded, popularity for The County has skyrocketed, and we’ve grown a robust local team to support tourism growth.
