Stayed here as an RCI exchange guest in May 2010. Had a 2 bed unit which was very comfortable, full 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with good living space. Very spacious for 2, comfortable for 4 but would be a bit snug for 6 - you would have to be on very good terms. Accomodation was very clean and very well cared for - simple decor, white walls and plain (but stylish) wooden IKEA furniture gave a very restful atmosphere. Bathrooms were very well appointed, both had full baths (deep soaking tubs) and good over bath showers with separate sinks - both bathrooms were of a very good size. Linens were of good quality, both beds king sized and both bedrooms were very spacious. Living rooms have a gas fireplace and comfortable chairs. Kitchens were well equiped with everthing you could want, and had a full sized cooker, microwave and large fridge - perfect for self catering with lots of preparation space. The units all have wonderful decks either looking onto a harbour view or an inlet view - both views are good. Ours had a hot tub - sort of like an outdoor bath as it had taps rather than being the usual type - basically to fill it up when you want to use it. The resort is a mixture of timeshare and private condos so it's a bit mix between holiday makers and longer term residents. The only drawback to the resort was that as it is very quiet then sound can travel as the buildings are 3 story wooden clad units - on a couple of nights we had noisy neighbours both at the side and above which was a pest. Some units have lots of steps so if you have mobility problems then suggest let the resort know. All units have a different layout to take advantage of the views which are great.
This is a very quiet resort, there is no entertainment on site which is just what we wanted but you do need a car to explore and to go out. This resort is at the end of the road and is great for watching wildlife - we saw sea lions, bald eagles, bears and whales from the unit - fantastic. Tofino is about a 45 minute drive away - with lots of wonderful beaches and rainforest in between - if you want action and lots going on head to Tofino.
Overall this was a lovely resort and I would recommend. The resort staff were wonderful and Linda the manager was super helpful and really cares about helping people to really enjoy themselves - thank you Linda!
We would really recommend the wildlife cruise with Al and Toddy at http://www.archipelagocruises.com/ - they are more expensive but it's worth it - wonderful boat and superb comfortable experience - and 5 minutes drive from the resort.
