Travel Blogs from Courtenay
Just what the doctor ordered!! My two friends and I decided we weren't going to fight with the rain and the taxi lines in Vancouver for NYE...nope...we took ourselves over to Vancouver Island and enjoyed 3 lush days of feasting, pampering, and good ol' R&R. I can't say enough good things about this resort...
The staff were all so …

Gary goes off the mountain golfing. For the 3 of us its hiking time! We're doing the Alpine lake loop, the trail head is just down the hill from our condo. Starts out with a boardwalk thru the meadow and crosses a small stream then up thru the treeline to two pristine alpine lakes. We're the only ones on the trail so you feel like you are away from …
... had intended to spend the 1st night over on the west ocast of Vancouver Island, but then I read that there are bears of concern to campers, and motel (resorts only) rates were big bucks, so I decided not to go there. Am looking forward to my 1st night, tomorrow night, camping in a remote and "mysterious" Olympic Nat Park campground in the far NW corner of WA. I'll head home via N CA and then Nevada, motelling it ...
... as ''oe-koe-leh-leh'' and not ''joe-koe-leh-leh''. After that, we watched different types of gypsy dancers taking us around India, eastern Europe, Turkey, Egypt and Iran. I couldn't really follow what was going on and it was a little weird (and sometimes awful music, but hey, we have awful carnavals music). Then we waited for Uminaro Taiko, a bunch of Japanese taiko drummers from Victoria. They were pretty energetic and it ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsKingfisher Oceanside Resort and Spa Courtenay
An amazing place where their commitment to local, sustainable produce and high quality service makes the stay so fantastic.
The rooms are fun - Murphy beds mean that there's more space. But, you hardly need it, considering the lounge chairs by the ocean (or when it's cold, like it is now, you can go in the spa lounge) or the hot tub, steam caves, outdoor heated pool, or more are on offer. The spa is fantastic - amazing hydrotherapy (a MUST!!) with divine massages and services available for reservation.
The food is one of the greatest highlights. Local seafood, cheese, meats, bread...you name it, they have it. I definitely recommend that you book - the restaurant is a favourite with locals and tourists alike, and you may be waiting if you don't have a reservation. But, you MUST eat here...don't cheap out and go to McDonalds in Courtenay!!
Bring some good books and unwind...this place is ideal for getting away without it breaking the bank...and trust me, you'll feel a whole lot happier and relaxed than if you take a stressful flight for 12 hours somewhere else!!
