“my favourite place”
Reviewed 4 October 2011

After 10 years (or more) of staying here I still think it is the best place I've ever stayed. Where else do you get a king size bed, full kitchen, fireplace, full size hot tub that is on a cliff over the ocean and absolute privacy. What more could you want? Also Maria, (the owner) is about one of the most wonderful people you could ever meet! You will never go wrong staying here. And contrary to the couple of reviews that says they are expensive, look around and you will see that staying in a "cheap" hotel in downtown Victoria costs more for far less. Take a chance and I know you will love it!

Room Tip: they are all the same so all excellent

If you want relaxation and rest,this is the place to come. An excellent choice for couples to be by themselves with complete privacy. My wife and I are making this our anniversary retreat.

Fossil Bay Resort is a great place to stay on Vancouver Island's west coast. It is a quiet beautiful part of the coast if one doesn't want the tourist crush of Torfino. The house keeping cabins are very attractive and comfortable, with a gorgeous view of the bay and complete privacy on the porch (that includes a hot tub). Great location: nearby walks in Juan de Fuca Park; delicious gourmet dinner 1.5km at Point No Point; fun non-gourmet dinner at Jordan River. Highly recommended for a convenient get-away.

Me and my wife spent a week here and had a blast. The numerous trails along the coast will keep anybody busy for days. The fireplace and hot tub are a great way to relax and enjoy the evening. The owners keep the place clean and are very nice and courteous.

We've stay at Fossil Bay Resort at least 8 times which pretty much tells you our opinion. There's just 6 little isolated cabins on the cliff overlooking the Straits of Juan de Fuca. It's not about luxury, it is about clean, well maintained cottages. Each cottage is has it's own hot tub which is very private and quiet. Sitting in the hot tub overlooking the ocean is...well, I'd never come home if I didn't have to. We go for short walks and long hikes at one of the many different beach trail. Oh, and don't forget to bring some seeds and nuts to feed the Stellars Jays that will visit you on your deck. Each cabin is self-contained with fridge, stove, microwave,etc so you don't even have to leave it you don't want to.

Room Tip: If you have a dog they have one cabin that allows
