The Lair also has a long driveway almost 50ft long so can easily accommodate a boat or any other long vehicles. In December of 2012 The French Girl's Lair became even cozier when we installed a gas fireplace in the family room. Exceptional Pacific Northwest Rainforest natural experience, hiking, beach combing, surfing nearby, storm watching at Botanical Beach, world class salmon and halibut fishing in season (may-Oct), abundant wildlife and the magnificent forest of Avatar Grove; a photographer's dream. Five minutes of walking from the cottages will get you to the Pacific Gateway Marina if you’re going fishing or you want to take in the sea air. Tommy's Home Cooking and The Coastal Kitchen Café are a five minute walk away if you get tired of your own cooking. The Renfrew Pub is maybe a 15 minute walk. You can get a selection of groceries including beer, wine and liquor at the General Store on Parkinson Road (open from 11am-7pm everyday). It’s a good idea though to stock up on groceries on your way to Port Renfrew in Sooke or Cowichan Lake if you are travelling from the other direction. Of course everyone takes credit cards, debit cards and that ancient currency, cash.More

A last minute booking turned into an absolute gem of a find, a four bedroomed seaside cabin with everything you could possibly need and buckets more. It was quiet at Port Renfrew as end of season but we were blessed with warm, sunny wind free...More

About the neighbourhood
Our cottages are located in the centre of Port Renfrew and only a few step from the Pacific Gateway Marina, local ding and beaches. We are a small cottage community where all cottages are privately own. Some owners like us rent, while others are only use by owners. Being a new development, there is construction and sales of new cottages in the area. Please refer to the Map (last picture in slide show) to view the location of your cottage and the green area that indicate the Future Phase, where the new cottages are being built. The work will be going from Monday to Thursday from approximatively 7am to 7pm. Weekends will be left with minimal activity.
