"Beautiful Place, Beautiful Room, Cool Staff"
U need to know two things about this before booking: 1. It's beautiful, INCREDIBLY beautiful, absolutely wonderful design, with incredible views of the mountain and the ocean. 2. It's a drive (not a long drive, but a drive) from the center of town, where you view the whales from an elevated clifftop with wrap around views. If you want to stay in town, next to the restaurants and shops, and, most importantly, right next to the whale viewing area (meaning, you want to walk just steps from your hotel to that platform), you should stay somewhere else. That being said, this is one of the best hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. It's like a dream home. Beautiful---the word really doesn't do it justice--outdoor spaces, dramatic views of the mountains and the water.... incredible furniture, beds, bathrooms, two sinks, just super cool. HUGE floor to ceiling windows that you can leave open if you want the ocean air coming in your room at night. super romantic. Big chunky awesome wood dinner table. Handmade food. Parking. My wife and I were only there for less than 24 hours (and only spoke to the staff for five minutes, but immediately liked them, especially the lady cook), but wish we could have stayed at least 2-3 days. Met the staff briefly, they were sweet. We were greeted at the door by the chef, who had floor on her shirt, which was really cute. This is private, removed from town, but luxurious and cool.
