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 ...

That was so much fun! I remembered a little bit the old ferries which took us to Dover, here, you can connect your computer, there is free wifi, a restaurant with all you want... I had this good hot chocolate, while looking outside, hearing and feeling the engines making this little sound and vibration, the sun was ...

We went and sat on the harbour wall for a while and had a chat with a nice guy who was fishing with one of his sons. He asked what we were doing in Canada so we told him about our trip. When we spoke about going to the cook islands soon, he said he had spent 7 months there a few years ...
... quarters. This saved the golf course from having to close down to fix all the divots I would've left behind. If I remember correctly the last time I golfed was in the late 70's, and that was not a good experience.
I did stick around for a while riding my mountain bike through the golf course trails, serving as the unofficial 442 Squadron Golf Tournament photographer. ...
