We booked the Porthole for a short, romantic getaway and loved everything about it. The view of the inlet was amazing to wake up to and the hot tub on the deck under the stars was a perfect way to end the day. The cabin was so cozy with the fireplace and the overall feel. We wanted privacy and liked the fact that it was a short drive to Ucluelet and Tofino.
The design, the view, and the hot tubs were all nice. Our family booked the main cabin, and we booked the one on the right down the hill for our wedding. While the cabins were lovely, the owners were not. (Please note, the date of our stay was not available in the drop down. This was from August 2018.) On the morning of our wedding, we had Gary literally yelling at our groomsman that he was rude and inconsiderate for having parked an additional car at our cabin to unload, rather than carrying supplies down the gravel hill by hand. This was while we were doing wedding photos. They then got after us again later about it. And then emailed me. And then complained to our other guests about it. Any time a car came in, they checked to make sure we weren't even thinking about driving it down the hill. They were frankly unpleasant to us the entire time we were there, to the point that we felt it necessary to take pictures when we left to prove we had cleaned up. (They told us, repeatedly, that everything had to be in *exactly* the state it was when we arrived.) We couldn't relax there at all. The bed in the cabin was like a board - I've never slept in a bed that uncomfortable, and I've willingly slept on futons. And like others have said, the wifi was flaky - which was important for us, as half the folks were from outside of Canada, and needed it. We're not partiers, we're not loud - we barely even had music on - we're seriously all nice, chill, lovely folks. It would have been ridiculously easy to just not be jerks. They certainly didn't seem comfortable at all with having a group with a lot of queer/trans folks. Never even bothered to congratulate us on the wedding. Basically... there are pretty cabins and campsites everywhere around there where you can relax and enjoy this beautiful area. We were very glad to be camping at Green Point the following night. It was so relaxing, and such a relief.…
This was such a beautiful, romantic place to stay! We stayed for two nights in the Osprey, and it exceeded all expectations. Physical distancing was easy, and everything felt extremely safe and sanitized. It has a fully equipped kitchen, bbq, and hot tub, and it's very private. The inside of the cottage has a super comfy couch, tv and an adorable loft. We were able to adventure during the day and then come back to this cozy cottage and relax in the evenings. The grey skies and rain made the warm light of this cottage extra cozy. I think the price was extremely reasonable for the wonderful experience you get out of it. I would definitely stay here again. :)
This was our first time to this particular part of Vancouver Island and we were not disappointed! Penne is a lovely host and the cabins were fabulous. Very clean, with fabulous views and everything that was needed for a delightful stay! The hot tub was the icing on the cake. Wonderful property! Would absolutely recommend and we will be back!
Me and my partner visit Ucluelet/Tofino whenever we can, and this was by far our favourite place we've stayed. We stayed in the Port Hole cottage, which boasted huge floor to ceiling windows, an adorable loft style bedroom, and a well cared for private hot tub. There were plenty of towels to dry off after surfing and everything we needed to cook some wonderful meals. The view from the hot tub is unparalleled, and we could sit on the deck for hours watching the wildlife in the inlet. Thank you for a wonderful stay - we can't wait to come back!
