From the moment we arrived, the warm welcome out on the front steps extended by our smiling hosts Alison and Mike hinted that this was going to be a special getaway. A former travel industry professional, I am notoriously fussy, and this B&B rates top scores for everything. The ocean side location of this contemporary West Coast architectural gem provides an ever changing vista just outside the many windows and outside decks. Binoculars and a special telescope cubby allowed us to get up close and personal with the wild residents of the cove and marvel over the power of the waves crashing on the coal black rocks beyond the cove. A short stroll along the Wild Pacific Trail to nearby Amphitrite lighthouse was fuelled by a gourmet breakfast that can be as substantial as you wish, with an array of fresh fruit, yogurt, muesli with homemade jams to spread on the fresh homemade baked goods; all this in addition to your choice of prepared to order “main course". The bright and airy rooms on the upper floor are generously proportioned, quiet and scrupulously clean, with large, private ensuite bathrooms. Amenities expected in the finest hotels, are a pleasant surprise: in room fridge; hair dryer; over-sized, fluffy bath towels; robes; brand name hair and body care along with romantic touches like double soaker tubs and candles. The hosts are delighted to fulfill special requests as well. Our room featured an elevated 2 person jetted tub situated to take in the expansive view. Cozy in our pillow topped beds with luxury linens, we drifted off to a sound sleep watching and listening to the ocean and wind murmuring through the boughs of huge evergreen trees, through the unusual circular window. This is the perfect getaway for a romantic weekend, or a family get together as the common area includes abundant, comfortable seating in a sweeping great room fronted by panoramic floor to ceiling windows, a huge natural stone fireplace and fully equipped guest kitchen. Keep up to date and stay in touch with the large screen TV and wireless internet ... or not. Alison and Mike are the perfect hosts; gracious, friendly and sensitive to the wants and needs of each guest. Their experience and knowledge of the area and activities assists guests to fine tune their stay; cozy & romantic: active and adventurous; calm and relaxing or a combination. This is West Coast hospitality at its very best and we highly recommend it!
