As the Vancouver winter seems to drag on I decided on a whim to book an out of town get-away for myself and my partner.
With work and life obligations looming, I knew that we needed to be close to home, but feel as though we were a million miles away. Taking into account ferry schedules, weather, and proximity to 'civilization' the Sunshine Coast was a good fit.
While there are a multitude of offerings for lodging, I was keen to find a place that was quiet, secluded, had a view and preferably a hot tub. A Google search for these terms led me to Marian's where their site and photos made it an easy decision to book.
We left rainy Vancouver and had a pleasant ferry ride as the clouds parted, the sun came out and we arrived at the end of the lane to meet Marian and Ian who helped us get settled. If anything, the suite is even more lovely than the photos on the website suggest.
The location is ideal, the accommodations sumptuous, and the baked goods are devilishly tempting -- freshly baked croissants in the mornings??? How could you ask for more.
I can't recommend a stay highly enough.More
