The first part of our stay was with the highly luxurious, private and serene Galiano Island Inn. We enjoyed every moment from the second we got off the ferry. This Inn is to date the most intimate, peaceful and romantic retreat we have had the pleasure of experiencing. The Villa was a lover's hideaway; we truly appreciated the peace and quiet after our wedding. It was as though we were the only ones in the resort but the little boutique Inn was booked. These units have complete sound barriers so not another's words were heard the entire weekend unless we chose to venture out into the quaint little town. The highlight for us was the luxury of keeping our windows open all night allowing the fresh ocean air to breeze in while knowing we wouldn't be disturbed in the morning by other patrons; we woke peaceful every morning. Equally pleasing was the freedom of having our own natural wood burning fireplace, jet tub, outdoor grill, patio heater and fully equipped kitchen! We spent every moment alfresco! We ate in the dining room once and for the most part enjoyed ourselves but the true enjoyment we had was living as we would at home, preparing our fresh food for ourselves, including snacks and evening tea in the delightful kitchen. This does allow to keep costs down, but we loved it simply for the exquisite privacy. Imagine a patio with a roaring fire, bubbly jet-tub, fresh ocean breeze whilst savouring a delicious glass of wine...this is no exaggeration...it was perfection! One evening we had front row seats to the most thrilling thunder and lightning show over the ocean. The spa mineral pool was lovely, the staff were swift and efficient with every detail including hand delivering cream to our door in the morning twice. We did a small load of laundry in our in-suite laundry center; showered in our 20 jet spray shower with a bench; watched movies in our king sized bed; called a couple family members with grateful words after our wedding with the hotel complimentary LD service...the list goes on and on. We just wished the fire wood had been complimentary as we loved our cozy fires. This executive Boutique Inn was 10/10 for us!
