Can't say enough about the Wickaninnish Inn. All of the staff were courteous and helpful. The loft suite was spacious, modern, comfortable with beautiful views. The kitchen was more than adequate. The Inn blends into the surrounding rain forest making you feel part of the local environment, not an intrusion to it.
Walks on the beach were easy with the rain gear and boots provided by the inn; although we were lucky not to need the rain gear that much.
If you're planning on exploring you must have a car. We rented one from the little airport. It was a little pricy but there wasn't a lot (any actually) of competition. The young woman at the Budget in the airport was extremely friendly and came to the inn to pick us up.
The restaurant was world class. The mark up on the wines was a little much but there was a nice selection of BC wines which were much better than I expected.
I look forward to returning sometime in the future. Winter storm watching might be interesting!
