“This studio suite, overlooking the beach, was still like brand new, and our hosts were exceptionally kind to us.”

We just loved our week in the Port Renfrew area ! There was the very long sandy beach that we walked many times, and the Parks trail that led down to the tide pools at Botanical Beach. Fortunately my husband had brought his fishing licence, because he really enjoyed casting for Coho, right out front from where we stayed. He was also treated to a 4 hour fishing trip on the west coast ! The beachfront location of our studio suite gave us a scenic view of the Port of San Juan, and lovely sunsets. It was fun to watch the surfers as well ! The studio suite is on the side of a home that was built in 2016. There is a dishwasher, a large fridge, a stove with an oven, and a microwave. The bed was very comfortable. Our hosts gave us space and privacy, yet they showed us so many kindnesses. We felt really spoiled ! We very much want to come back to Port Renfrew, and stay in the same place !

“Peaceful & Relaxing”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Dan and Carol were terrific hosts, very friendly and accommodating. The studio was in the most fantastic location with a breathtaking view.... probably the best place to stay in Port Renfrew. The studio is well thought out and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. It is very clean and well looked after. I highly recommend their place if you are thinking about staying in Port Renfrew, you will not be disappointed.

“Stay here! It is paradise :)”
Reviewed 7 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This suite is absolutely gorgeous. It is brand new, spotless, and very tastefully put together. The views are spectacular (you can see and hear the ocean from the bed!!). The owners are really friendly and accommodating and made sure to be inviting but not intrusive. We visited botanical beach and avatar grove (very close by) on our stay. Both were beautiful and we were even lucky enough to see orcas swimming along the coast. Do yourself a favour and stay at this place. And eat at the Coastal Kitchen when you're in Port Renfrew :)
