Meet the Meriel Team – Torrey’s Holiday Favorites

Happy Holidays at Meriel Marina Bay


The holiday season is our favorite time of the year here at Meriel Marina Bay! From decorating our community, to providing holiday events, our goal for the season is to provide cheer for our residents and the Marina Bay community!
