We stayed at Reef Point this past weekend and were impressed with the customer service, cleanliness, and layouts of our cottage (#271). We arrived to Ucluelet a bit early and were able to get into our cottage before the check-in time, which was much appreciated!
Our cottage had a fantastically equipped kitchen (everything from a wine opener to egg poachers to mixing bowls! Plus a full size stove & oven, apartment size fridge, and a dishwasher!). The main level contained the stainless steel kitchen, a bathroom with a shower, a dining area with seats for 6, a comfortable living room with a fold-out sofa bed. The living room opened onto a large deck with the hot tub, a patio table for 6, and a peek-a-boo view of the Sound. We were thrilled to be able to hear the sea lions “barking” in the distance at night from the back decks…just a reminder that we were on the wild west coast!
The upstairs had a Queen size bedroom with a balcony overlooking the sound and a nice view of the open ocean in the distance. Also, upstairs was a large bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. The second bedroom had a King bed that looked like it could be made into twin beds if required. The cabin was also equipped with a large BBQ but we did not have an opportunity to use it.
Our cottage was very clean inside and smelled like a wood cabin should. We had several very large towels which were nice for getting to and from the hot tub. The kitchen and bathrooms were immaculate and the bedding was obviously fresh. We couldn’t find a speck of dust or dirt anywhere inside the cottage! Keeping in mind that it is near the ocean and during storm season we could easily forgive and forget the evidence of birds and trees on the decks
We did run out of towels due to the amount of hot tub usage as well as a small bathtub overflow. But we called the front desk and Kathleen, the manager, came with a hamper full of clean towels within 10 minutes. We had a chance to talk to her for a bit and were impressed by her plans to bring more local products into the cottages as well as the plans of continued maintenance around the resort. She was very approachable and open to comments and suggestions to improve Reef Point Cottages.
The cottages are located within walking distance to the Wild Pacific Trail…which I would highly recommend! We did ½ of the forest walk to get to a view point and watch the sunset. On our second day, after checkout, we did the lighthouse coast walk and were amazed at the beauty of the coast!
Overall, I think that Reef Point Cottages was a great place to stay and we look forward to going back again…we were sad to leave our little “home”.
PS- We enjoyed a great meal at Frankie’s Driftwood Patio Restaurant…the food was AMAZING…I’ll put a review up for that as well!
