Our apologies Irina, for taking so long to comment on how wonderful you made our stay at the Armand Heights. Very easy to access, and conveniently located close to town, the Armand Heights gave us more than just a place to stay. We were greeted by our wonderful host, Irina and her lovely dog Sky. Not only was she friendly and welcoming, but we were also treated with two delectable slices of banana cake. We stayed in the "Pine Room", and I must say was it ever well kept and clean... with some complimentary wine, which we very much appreciated! Everything was easily accessible, and the bed was like laying on a cloud... it took us a good chunk of time before we were ready to get back up! The view from our deck was just breathtaking, that is all I can say - it has to be seen to be believed, no amount of pictures can do justice the feeling of standing there in the early morning or late evening. The breakfast served was excellent, and Irina made sure we (well, Matt specifically) were well fed. Our stay was over the Easter long weekend, so while it was a little chilly, we did brave the hot tub and I must say we were in for a treat. At night, the lighting system they have installed creates a very unique atmosphere. The hot tub is large, comfortable, and most importantly, hot!
As I've stated earlier, the service was excellent, but Irina went above and beyond anything I ever expected. Our car suffered an unfortunate incident in which my car was essentially inoperable. Stuck between a rock and a hard place, I did manage to get my car back to the Heights, but I surely would not have been able to drive it back to the ferry the next day when we were scheduled to leave. I explained to Irina what had happened, and within 5 minutes I was on the phone with someone that might have been able to help me. Within 20 minutes someone had come out to the Heights, and helped me get my car working again! The friendly atmosphere of the Armand Heights, and of course the lovely people of Salt Spring Island makes this a must stay destination. I promise you, you will not be disappointed. Classic board games stashed in the closet, deserts to die for, the perfect breakfast to start your day, the perfect bed to end your day, a view that will live in your mind forever, and a host that truly embodies the definition of hospitality - I just can't say enough good things about this place. Go there, you won't be disappointed.
