We were a group of 4 adults (two couples). We were originally booked into a very compact beach front cottage although the reservation agent did try to talk us into a larger one.
When we arrived we could see why and fortunately were able to change to a bigger beachfront cottage. The small one would be suitable for a couple or a family with 1 or 2 children.
We were absolutely delighted with the cottage we rented. The decor was lovely and suitable to the location. The beds were very comfortable and the couple sleeping upstairs found that there was opportunity for through ventilation thanks to well screened window at each end of the loft room. There was even a fan upstairs as well as a nightlight to prevent stumbling in the dark.
Each cottage has a full kitchen, a well designed bathroom with a tub as well as a lovely deck with a propane BBQ and a wood picnic table as well as a couple of comfortable resin chairs.
We were impressed with how well the resort was maintained. There was a tennis court, a half sport court as well as a lovely jacuzzi set among the tall Douglas Fir and Cedar trees.
The Marina itself was well kept with several high end yachts and sailboats moored there.
We enjoyed swimming from the dock and also took advantage of the kayak tours offered by the Quadra Island Kayaks next door who also used the Marina.
We found to our delight that there was a full service grocery store complete with liquor outlet and post office just 300 meters away.
We used the location as a starting point for visiting Rebecca Spit provincial park and also many hikes. We will be back!
