Beautiful Place! Quick drive to the Ferry & very friendly host.
Checking in was super easy. Eric met us at the grocery store near the ferry terminal (with his 2 beautiful labs) & showed us the way. It's about a 6 min drive & not hard to find. Roads get narrow though so you have to drive slowly.
The view is amazing & the Cabin had everything we needed. We saw all sorts of wildlife, including orcas (twice) Wifi & internet connection was great. Eric was easy to get a hold of & very accommodating with any concerns/requests. He even had a gate made for the deck to accommodate our dog. (without us even asking, & was very appreciated) One day he brought us daffodils from his yard, which was so sweet. He was always a pleasure to deal with.
Its not recommended to drink the tap water, but Eric Provided the 1st 2 jugs. We were there for a month so we refilled them ourselves at the grocery store.
We were there during the off season (Spring) & the yard looked like it was in the process of being cleaned up for the summer, so there was a some untidiness but nothing that impeded on our experience. The dock & the ramp down need a little work & are quite slippery when wet. So would recommend caution when using. However, it was a great feature of the place & we used it to be picked up at when we went salmon fishing (Which Eric helped set up for us & Mark was a wonderful guide) and we chilled out on it a few times too. It was too cold for a swim while we were there. & the tide moves very quickly, like a little river in that spot. But you could us a SUP there if you wanted. The little island close by would be fun to check out. when the tide is slack you could probably swim around too. no ladder on the dock & no beach so just be careful.
There are always seals, otters & eagles in the area, plus sea lions pass by often. The neighbors are really nice, & the Petersons' own a few other properties that they rent out along the same driveway. So you are not isolated, but still have tons of privacy & nature. Limited parking, but we managed to fit a truck & small SUV.
April Point resort is close by. It was closed during our stay, but made for a really nice place to go for a walk & beachcomb. Be respectful & clean up after yourself (Dog/Kids). They are keeping tabs on the place & are very friendly & accommodating as long as you are respectful.
Quadra Island is a beautiful place, with tons of hiking, places to eat, history, nature & friendly people. You wont want to leave.
