Liz Belford, owner of the Rosewater Spa in Oakville: “I just don’t think there’s a better place to live.”
Toronto has a love affair with the condo, with 28,466 new-build units purchased in 2011. Thousands more are planned. Suite size, price, amenities and architecture are important, but more and more, a building’s neighbourhood is being considered the ultimate draw. The 12th part of a lengthy series examining the GTA’s new condo ’hoods.
It’s a cool but sunny weekday morning and Oakville’s picturesque downtown is quiet. Only a handful of people are out walking, most with dogs. With little traffic, delivery men stop their trucks in the turning lanes and unload their wares from there. For a midtown 416er venturing to one of Canada’s wealthiest neighbourhoods for the very first time, the silence and tranquility is almost eerie.
We’re living in tumultuous times. Closer to home, our hopes and dreams are being fulfilled and we are indeed grateful! Rosewater Spa of Oakville celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year; we recently gathered to recognize our incredibly talented staff; we won the 2011 spAWARD as one of Canada’s Top 50 Spas; and we are introducing our involvement with the New Oakville Hospital through Project Honeycomb. On a personal note, I’m going to be a grandmother for the second time, later this year. Wonderful news. As we continue watching world events, and preparing for the long awaited arrival of spring, let’s celebrate hope for new beginnings.
May all your hopes and dreams come true…

This year, staff from both Rosewater Spa locations travelled to beautiful Collingwood for our annual Staff Getaway.
We stayed at the gorgeous Pretty River Valley Country Inn and spent a relaxing day taking the waters at Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain. A few of us are pictured here. We all came away with a new appreciation for the fine art of hospitality, and hope that we will have the pleasure of sharing it with you in 2011.
Thank you for being part of our story! We wish you blessings of the season and a healthy and happy holiday… because you deserve it.
I was the only Canadian to join a private No Compromise Leadership biking tour for 5 days in Vermont and little did I know what I was in for. The first day was far from a warm-up and just a teaser of what was to follow.
It may have taken quite a few miles to work the kinks out of my legs and churn up those Vermont hills but the payoff was more than rewarding. The beauty of the rolling farmland, covered bridges, apple orchards and views of the Adirondacks towering over Lake Champlain was beyond description. Did you know that the state of Vermont is billboard-free? It is also the only state capital without a McDonalds and the last state to get a WalMart! Continue reading
Earlier this year I was fortunate to receive a bursary to study Italian – in where else – Florence, Italy! Yes, you read that correctly, and no – I didn’t dash off to research Italian mud for the Rosewater while I was there. Italy was a dream come true! Italian is truly the world’s most loved and loveable language. In my case I got to inhabit “la bella lingua” to explore a little of Italy’s history, art, music, lifestyle and food. I returned with a desire to go back again to continue my life long passion for learning new languages.
Ciao for now!
