We stayed at Stone Wood for two nights in September 2011 and wished afterwards we had stayed longer (see below). Rob and Susie are a joy, we laughed such a lot, and certainly they could not make you more welcome. The house should be featured in a top homes magazine it is so, so beautiful and everything in the bedroom and bathroom looks like no one has ever stayed there before it is so clean and new: fluffy, sparkling towels; beautiful bedding;quality, generous toiletries, etc. The breakfast could not be bettered, wonderfully tasty and beautifully presented, I challenge anyone to want any lunch!. I really can't recommend it highly enough, you will not find anywhere better.( You may find somewhere with better advertising, but I am convinced it could not be as good.)
We left there to drive over to Torfino and the drive was lovely but we found the town and the local area disappointing and very expensive. They really rip you off when you go over there as it's a long way back to anywhere else so you have to pay up!
We found the Cowichain area, where Stone Wood is, very beautiful with excellent restaurants at reasonable prices (Genoa Bay Restaurant is a must, try the seafood chowder.) Susie and Rob will point you in the right direction for anything you want to do.
