The Water's Edge is really a great escape - a wonderfully restful place to stay. We stayed in the Sea Breeze suite, which was very comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was delivered to our room each morning, with fresh warm croissants, home-baked bread and muffins, etc, etc.
Crystal and Steve are really welcoming and helpful, absolutely full of useful information, and very eager to make sure you get the best out of your stay with them. They are also more than happy to help out with the little things that make a difference, like putting out a special "breakfast to go" for us the day before our very early start for a bear-watching trip.
The location cannot be beaten. The views from the clifftop deck (and the hot tub) are stunning, especially at sunset. There are steps down to a little seat part way down the cliff and from there you can scramble down onto the rocks and watch the sea-life in the rock pools at low tide. There's often a bald eagle perched on one of the trees, or flying about. It's an easy walk into the centre of town for the shops, restaurants, and everything else, so if you don't have a car, you won't feel at all isolated. But if you just want a beach, beautiful Tonquin beach is right next door and is blissfully quiet.
The Water's Edge is the perfect combination of comfortable rooms with lovely hosts in a great location. It's just a tragic shame that Crystal and Steve are thinking of selling up and moving on. I only hope whoever takes over keeps it open as a B&B and keeps up the high standards. It would be a shame to lose this little gem.
