This is the 4th time I have stayed at Whalesong Lodge and I know I will keep coming back. The reasons why I return here are numerous.
Firstly, Stanley and Lainy are brilliant hosts and the high levels of comfort and care inspires me each time I return.
They have created a guest house that truly nurtures the soul. Delicious coffee and breakfast is served overlooking the most spectacular view of the ocean with the whales breaching as you enjoy home baked breads, jams and local produce. Guests are welcome to use the kettle at any time, put their feet up and simply watch the whales go by.
In winter there is a fireplace and a communal living area that is spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated.
There are many restaurants nearby to enjoy but dinner can also be arranged on request and all is possible in Stanley's kitchen!
Simply chic and spotlessly clean, this is my favourite place to stay in the whole world.
I love the attention to details that Stanley and Lainy strive for to give their guests the most pleasurable and memorable stay - On this trip, I enjoyed a massage with a very gifted local resident and these can be arranged by the hosts in the comfort of your room...a unique organic range of products such as rosemary and mountain mint bath salts are provided to relax any sore muscles after exploring the breathtaking surroundings and home-made chocolate truffles to end the day (which I did not notice till my last night!) Now that's another reason to go back.
Home sweet Home. Till the next time, thank you thank you thank you and thank you to all the wonderful staff that also take such good care of Whalesong Lodge and their guests!
