We just stayed here for 10 days and had a perfect stay! The house, location and view are so much more than the pictures can convey. The owner anticipated our every need and it felt like we were her own personal house guests. The house was in great shape - clean, well maintained, fully equipped plus it is full of interesting artwork and has a great library - no need to bring your own books to read. We were given a notebook with all the information we needed - people in the community to contact for questions about the house, the area, whale watching and other local amenities and activities. If you know about Alert Bay already, look no further - this is the house you will want. If you are wondering if you want to stay in Alert Bay - you should seriously consider it. It was our first visit and we found it to be charming and friendly with ample things to do - a visit to the U'mista Cultural Museum is a must, stroll along the boardwalk and visit the shops, walk along the extensive trail system through old growth trees and a lengthy shore littered with driftwood, river rocks and tidal pools. The ferry allows you to travel to Malcolm Island and the village of Sointula for free. Mostly, we cooked our own meals and enjoyed the view from the deck - a constant stream of ravens, eagles and seagulls, interesting water craft, tidal currents and low fog that burned off by midmorning each day. We did not see whales from the deck, but we saw them elsewhere many times. Everyone says it is just a matter of time until we would have seen them from the deck. Two unexpected treats - the bed in the master bedroom is the most comfortable bed I have even slept in and the tap water is delicious! I brought a full carton back with me!
