So make your reservation and get your own personalized ride to your villa and start enjoying the most amazing Vacation SIM on the Grid. We were so impressed with this SIM we had to sit down with the owner and discuss his vision behind Paradise Cove Hideaway
Diamond Meness: How did you hear about Second Life and What made you come here?
Rosco Dexing: I have 2 rl sisters here and we wanted a way to stay close because we are in different cities right now
Diamond Meness: Was contact strictly as a means to communicate to family or once you got here, you liked Section Life?
Rosco Dexing: Once I got here I liked it and it took on a life for me. I’m a single dad
Diamond Meness: What do you mean it took on a life for you?
Rosco Dexing: Well I got to meet people and go out and have fun, but it got better after I met my wife.
Diamond Meness: How did you meet your wife?
Rosco Dexing: We stayed friends for about 8 months. She is just so different from all the women I met and we started to date. Then we got married. OMG she is my world.
Diamond Meness: Tell us about Paradise Cove Hideaway. Was it something you created on your own or was it a collaborated effort with your wife? What made you want to create something so beautiful for the community?
Rosco Dexing: My wife and I are so into family and my daughter just got married 3 months ago. My wife and I had our honeymoon in a sky box, which was nice, but you really got love your mate to make it in a few days in a skybox. My son and I searched for 2 weeks for a place but when it came to my daughter I wanted more for her, so we searched for about 2 weeks. Some places had the box like the one night stand type of hotel and I was like hell no. Other places cost 8k for a week so I talk to my wife and family, mainly my wife, and we made a list of all the things we wanted, not just for honeymoons but for couples to be able to have a place to get away to. If it cost too much you can do a getaway to often because you have kids and other things to take care of and you start moving a part. You need that time to be together. That’s why we set the cost in a comfortable range so you can relax more often. My wife has a vision of how to bring in the feel. We wanted a place you could just relax. Weddings cost so much, but then you don’t have a place for a honeymoon to start your new life. I learned that from my wife. Life after the wedding is more important.
Diamond Meness: Where did the name Paradise Cove Hideaway come from?
Rosco Dexing: My wife. The family made a list of like 15 names and my wife placed the name we all liked the most. We wanted the name to match the place the spirit.
Diamond Meness: What does a couple do once they get to Paradise Cove Hideaway? What amenities do you offer? Is it strictly for honeymoons, or romantic getaways and family vacations are available as well.
Rosco Dexing: The main part is honeymoons and couple getaways. Once you get your house you can check in and then explore all the common areas. If a family wants to come and rent the land I have an idea of the cost. There are about 10 different sites and fishing and white water rafting. You have to be able to laugh and have fun with your partner. There is privacy. Your names are added to that house so no other couple can enter.
Diamond Meness: What do you do on the down time? When there is no one renting. Do you rent to businesses or groups to host events, etc.
Rosco Dexing: Yes. It depends if you want to stay over. The land holds 20 people at one time. So say you want a weekend for a group and you want the houses, I would do that for 8k for 2 days, but you get a free day before your time starts. Check out is midnight
Diamond Meness: Where do we see the future of paradise Cove going.
Rosco Dexing: A full SIM. We will add more of a winter and maybe receptions. My wife has a vision.
Diamond Meness: Is there something you want your customers to know that we didn’t ask you?
Rosco Dexing: We are a family business. I have 3 daughters, my son in law, and my granddaughter and great granddaughter working with us. We want to make everyone’s SL as real as we can. The joy on a happy couples face is what we are after.
Diamond Meness: Well Mr Dexing, thank you so much for taking the time to meet with me and me and my husband wish you a lot of success. We see great things happening with your vacation SIM.
Rosco Dexing: Thank you.
