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!!

We did some hugging and took our luggage. We took the 'seaside route' so Marloes and I could enjoy the scenery and views from the ocean. We stopped a few times, including to see some sea lions lying on each others' bums and making funny noises. It was a ...
... with this dark weather and the fog hanging over the water. We walked along the water, I remembered my mother who there would have spent here nose close to the ground to find nice pebbles (rollers? des galets in french)!
And now, back home, I am drinking a good cup of tea, and I just tried for the first time Egg Nog!

... peace and beauty as our reflections barely wavered in the mirrored waters! Suddenly, excitement. I spotted something that moved rapidly off rocks close by. On inspection the movement proved to be mumma river otter with her 3 babies who surveyed us whilst we marvelled at what cute little things they were and at the fact that we were lucky to see them up close and personal. Returning in the kayaks by 6.30pm still left 3 hours of daylight to ...
... up immunity to it without getting sick. Red-fronted Coot, Red-gartered Coot and White-winged Coot were the Chilean bird species we learned tonight. Only 464 more to learn in the next 9 days! Also need to figure out which date to pick the Navimag ferry. So much to do, so I better get off the blog and do something ...
