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...

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 …
... Rob got the chance to hang out with us). But it wasn't the type of bowling I am used to. There were only 5 pins, each with a different number of points to it if you knocked them over. And then strikes and spares also had their own points. And then the balls... They were very small, I don't know what to compare them with. No holes in them. Nice colours though. The light blue one was my favourite.
We started playing and Rob went ahead of me. I came ...

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!!
