Liz made every effort to accommodate our needs, including showing up with a slice of toast at night when I was actually requesting it for breakfast. She tailored the menu to accommodate a child with a severe food allergy and picky palate. When the child played with her exercise equipment, Liz was kind enough to give a demo and told me it was off limits, without making either of us feel bad about it. Barbecue grill was great and we cooked all our meals (Liz did the dishes). Hot tub under the stars is amazing. View is very nice, but not breathtaking.
Only cautions: The double shower design -- like a waterfall on one side, with plants -- looks great, but since there is no actual stall, just a curtain, the water floods the floor. Everything gets wet, if you're not careful.
Plus, when we visited, the island was plagued with wasps. The child (7 y.o.) was afraid to go outside because wasps were all over the short grass. Not nice for playing. This spot is probably nicer for adults. Even I didn't like sitting outside. Gabriola in general seems more run down than I remember it from 10 - 15 years ago.
