Go here to relax! Unfortunately we could only stay one night and had to leave early... but the view, coupled by the hospitality and the fabulous Riso restaurant down the road in Lantzville made it a stop worth making. Also there is a hot tub.

I have the privilege of staying here at least once a month during the course of a year. The hospitality and facility is top notch in surroundings that are quiet and scenic. If you can reserve the oceanfront room you will have all if the comforts that the B&B offers with a great ocean view.

Initial Booking Process: Jan provided a very quick response to our email inquiries and also provided heads-up info about the BC Summer Games that prompted us to change our travel plans.

“All rooms are good. Of course and ocean view is always desirable (which is available) but honestly you'd be happy in any of the rooms.”

“Book the Ocean Suite if you want an ocean view and want to watch the Humming Birds in action. If you have two families travelling together book the Garden Suites, they share an adjoining door in a separate house with a private patio area.”
