Every October we take a family trip around the trail. We booked a three bedroom cottage almost two months ago. We have stayed at Pilot Whale for the past 4 years, not anymore! Upon arrival we were told our reservation was no longer available. We were left to hunt around a small community of "No Vacancy" postings. Our biggest disappointment... More

Although there are no meals included; you could stay there forever. The little basement apartment that we had was fabulous. Very clean!! Everything that you would need. Small appliances, fridge stove, bar b q etc. The girl at the front desk was very pleasant and bubbly. I would certainly recommend this place and definitely stay there again.

They have everything you need to cook your own meals, bbq included. Bed was very comfortable with a beautiful view of the ocean from the bedroom window. Location- just on the way out of... More

The chalets have a small deck with wooden furniture to look out on the ocean. The interior was dated and worn but very clean. Kitchen is supplied as is a... More

The price , with tax , was $233.00 . If you are travelling with another couple or children , I would consider this an... More
