We visited Gabriola as the last stage in a three week trip to Canada this summer.We had built the trip around a family wedding and wanted to see the Rockies ,Vancouver and Vancouver Island as well.Combine this with visiting friends along the way and we had a lot to fit in.We decided to spend our last 2 nights at Twin Beaches and were not dissapointed.Shaun and Jo were so wecoming ,helping us with our plans,meeting us from the ferry showing us around the island and even taking us out for the day on their lovely boat(a lovingly restored trawler) called Fraser!
Twin Beaches is a lovely house in the forest and a short walk from two very atmospheric beaches,where the sea carves the most amazing shapes in the rocks and its so peaceful!Our accomodation was far more spacious than we expected and everything was thought of for our stay.Our accomodation comprised a very comfortable double bedroom,shower room,kitchen and a lounge area leading out into the garden.All areas were clean and everything looked new.There was also a sofa bed in the lounge and bunks so it would be great for a family as well.
Jo and Shaun were great hosts and so friendly,dont miss Shauns workshop and gallery and the local artisan market!
