Interval International and Welk Resorts recently the renewal of their master affiliation agreement. The multi-year contract extends the relationship established in 2004 and comprises six existing properties in four sought-after markets, as well as future development.
The resort portfolio includes Welk Resort San Diego, where it all began in 1964 with legendary bandleader Lawrence Welk’s purchase of hundreds of undeveloped acres in Southern California. Today’s high-quality vacation community spans 450 acres and contains three projects: Welk Resort Villas, Villas On The Greens, and Mountain Villas.
Welk Resorts Desert Oasis is situated just north in Cathedral City, adjacent to Palm Springs. The luxurious one-bedroom villas are well-appointed, with garden or poolside views. Guests can choose from a range of top-of-the-line amenities, such as swimming pools and a fitness facility, as well as the championship Cathedral Canyon Golf and Tennis Club.
The rustic-style Lodges at Timber Ridge is nestled in the picturesque countryside in Branson, Missouri, also known as the “Live Music Show Capital of the World.” Its two-bedroom lock-off units are constructed of rough-hewn timber and decorated with an Ozark Mountain theme.
The latest addition to the Welk family of resorts is its first outside the United States: Welk Resorts Cabo – Sirena del Mar in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Set on a 65-foot bluff on the tip of the Baja California peninsula, the property was built in tiers so that each elegant unit has panoramic views of the Sea of Cortez.
