Gary Wilson knows cleanliness is next to happiness.

The 55-year-old is a resort attendant at Ocean Key a VSA Resort, at the Virginia Beach oceanfront.

“I like talking to the guests and making sure they have everything they need to have a wonderful vacation,” the Virginia Beach resident said. “They will know I am here to take care of them year after year. People remember when you take care of them.”

A bright smile and a friendly hello are the first steps Wilson takes to help kick off his customer’s vacations the right way. The next thing is to make sure everything is working right, and the rooms and common areas are clean and ready for use.

“I enjoy my job and the people I get to work with on a daily basis,” he said. “We all get along and work well as a team.”

Wilson has been at Ocean Key for six years, and doesn’t have any plans on leaving.

“I love to clean,” said Wilson, who also details cars in his spare time. “I like to make things shine.”

Wilson said he is looking forward to the summer season, and returning guests.

“Our guests are satisfied because we take good care of them,” he said. “We go out of our way to make sure everyone has a good time.”
