Best hosts we've ever encountered. Ralph and Rocky will go out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable during your visit. Don't misunderstand, they won't encroach on your space either. As locals, they tell you all the best spots to visit on the island, they've even created their own professional map of the island. The accommodation itself is cozy, new appliances, and they've recently just purchased a brand new bbq. Easy access to beaches, short drive to the markets, and the hikes. I'm the kind of guy who likes to go out during the day doing adventure things but really be able to return home to a clean, cozy, comfortable place..and their cottages are exactly that. Bonus, Rocky (Veronica), bakes the best carrot cake in the universe, and she delivered to us the first night..(WHAT??) I devoured it after I was already full from dinner, and I don't even like carrot cakes (truth, I grew up in Asia, carrots don't go into cakes)
Definitely staying there again when we return to Galiano.
