Very friendly, relaxed atmosphere. I felt truly welcome and at home in the Big Blue House. I stayed in the Seaview Room that has an ensuite. Big, comfortable bed and the room was also very big. Felt pampered. (Appreciated the mini-fridge in the room, too.) Kate and Lynne are warm, friendly and helpful. It's easy to get downtown by the bus that stops just up the road. Garnet Station is a quirky cafe with delicious wood-fired pizzas also just up the road. Good wi-fi, pool (but too cold for me!) Nice cat named Alice.
