Jenny and Malcolm Patterson purchased this Lodge in 1996
Why Jenny and Malcolm Patterson chose Vacy
We built Banjos from scratch - purchased the 20 acres of land in May 1996, and began building in June 1996, and completing the first stage of our property in March 1998 - consisting of our 2 & 4 bedroom lodges plus the recreation building. Our 3 bedroom lodge was added by June 2005 - completing our retreat. Malcolm wanted a hobby that would keep him busy - Banjos really fits the bill, as there is always lots of ongoing maintenance to keep up with. Banjos is not just another holiday destination - it has been set-up to make guests feel welcome, comfortable and happy from the very moment the arrive! When staying at Banjos you can read our history in a coffee table book.
