This property is quirky and eclectic so your stay may have some ups and downs like ours did. The owner helped us with our bags when we went to the room and introduced us to "King," his huge, but totally gentle dog, that spends a lot of time on the porch. Our check-in was courteous & the owner's partner/significant other helped us out 1 night by giving us a tip about a public (no fee) beach to walk on, Chesterman Beach. Our room was downstairs from the restaurant & the confirmation said, "There may be some noise from above when our sushi bar is open, just so you know." They were right - you could hear the staff setting up in late morning & the noises of tables & chairs being shuffled around & footsteps back & forth on the wooden floor, etc. but at least there wasn't a lot of conversation noise late into the night, even when the restaurant was quite busy. We had room #3 & stayed for 4 nights. The bathroom was roomy and modern, with good towels which were changed daily, but no hair dryer provided. The king size mattress was firm, which we liked, the duvet comfortable, and the pillows just O.K. A coffeemaker, wine glasses, tiny TV, & small mini frig that "buzzed" all the time (& woke me up frequently in the night) were provided. There was an old dressing table/mirror missing it's top with 3 tiny drawers, a coat rack with some hangers, and two luggage racks, but no closet. Due to our longer stay we lived out of our suitcasees and I would have appreciated a dresser or a closet. This room has a small deck that looks onto the ocean with one O.K. deck chair & a broken bar stool with an unattached seat. However, the view right off the deck was a pile of empty buckets & left-over wood from a buillding project. There was a combination of white cotton & black velvet curtains. so if you want a dark room at night these won't help you. The sushi bar was both a plus & a minus - GREAT restaurant (amazing Buddha roll and Crazy Ron roll), but the smell of sushi every time we walked in & out of the hotel to our room got to me after 1 day. Late one afternoon my husband wanted to have a beer on the deck of the restaurant (which had about six customers at the time) to look out onto the water but the staff wouldn't serve him unless he ordered a meal. We were kind of perturbed about that considering we were spending $800 Canadian for just our room and it wasn't busy at all. They do have four blue deck chairs on the porch (along with 2 rusting gallon paint cans & dried-up paint rollers a barrel next to them) where you could have a drink from their bar, but this side of the porch looks onto an unfinished restaurant that they appear to be slowly constructing next door.
