Our suite was right at ground level with our own patio over looking Rathtrevor beach and across the straight to mainland BC. The huge cove was amazing for beachcombing and huge walks. We could see eagles, herons and we even had a hummingbird feeder right outside our picture window and patio. Our living area was very large and included a sofa, loveseat and recliner. There was a great 55 in TV and a a working electric fireplace. But also... a dining table for four, a granite counter with two counter stools. The kitchen came fully equipped with a stove, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher. I am sitting here right now with a glorious cup of coffee I made in suite. The bedroom is very spacious with an incredibly comfortable king bed. What I find amazing is the quietness of the outdoors and inside. First thing in the morning coffee and bird song is all I need. Darcy, the manager was also out of this world. Our welcome packet told us all we needed and Darcy was available any time for help if we needed it.
