This was our 2nd time visiting The Hidden Forest Beach House ! We absolutely love this place and the rustic feel it has ! Lots of room for a few families to sleep and enjoy ! Our kids loved running around and having the beach right in the front yard was perfect for exploring! We will be returning for years to come ! The owners are amazing and very accommodating!
The cabin is light, airy and comfortable with views to die for. Our family (two adults, children 11 & 19, and dog) enjoyed our time here immensely. We started each morning with beach combing, picking up shells, watching otters and seals play, and harvesting clams and/or oysters. Then we would do our activity of the day... exploring nearby trails, beaches, kayaking, swimming and snorkelling. We stopped daily for an ice cream (10 min away) and then napped the afternoon away. In the evening we watched the stars come out and enjoyed a family movie on the television. It was the most peaceful relaxing vacation our family has ever had and the kids are already begging to go back, despite there being no wifi or data. That's right! I had them unplugged for a whole week!
The owners were very kind and helpful answering all our questions and even dropped off a treat for our family. We felt well taken care of.
The cabin itself is a little 'rustic', but we liked that aspect as I was not stressed out if the kids accidentally forgot to take their shoes off, or ran through wet. It was clean and comfortable, my only complaint was one of the beds was hard as a rock.
We almost missed out on this gem due to a previous review, but risked it anyway, and so glad we did.
If you stay here be sure to see Rebecca Spit, and the Nuyumbalees Cultral Centre.
I have stayed in this cottage 3 times now, all different times of the year. Once all by myself where I felt perfectly safe alone and the other two times with friends. It would be a great place for a group with plenty of room for everyone. The little cove the property is set within is peaceful and so beautiful especially first thing in the morning as the sun comes up, which you can watch from the top floor bedroom through the huge front windows. A wonderful way to start the day. A perfect painters or writers retreat. I will hopefully return for a reunion of school friends next year. It would be perfect!
