“…Totally perfect retreat…”

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Malahat Waterfront Retreat. The property was superbly presented and furnished to a very high standard, accommodation was ideal for our party. Everything we needed was considered and available. We spent our week taking in the magnificent views and wildlife from the deck and exploring the waterfront paths. And just when you think you’ve seen it all a cute chocolate box cottage sits a few steps away from the main property, like something from a Hans Christian Andersen tale. Just a short drive away are spectacular viewpoints, coastal villages and opportunities to stock up on supplies. The owner could not have been more accommodating, it’s well located and we would absolutely stay here again. This was one of the most relaxing vacations we had taken in a long while.
