Hello Craig – Thanks for your feedback. We are always looking for ways to improve our guests enjoyment of Secret Beach B&B and we’re sorry that there were parts of your stay that didn’t match your expectations.
I think part of the difficulty is that some of the description that you are referring to is on our website and may refer to another suite that does have a panoramic ocean view from the suite's bay window. Everyone who stays with us has access to our full length deck overlooking the Straight of Georgia to enjoy breakfast, cocktails, coffee etc. We’ll try to make this clearer in the description. On AirBnB Forest Suite description we wrote, “easy access to our breakfast nook, patio and ocean view deck” but perhaps we need to say more.
It sounds like you might have not had the opportunity to explore the grounds as there are many gardens spread across the acre property. Flowers come an go with the changing seasons and we are currently under a midsummer water restriction so it’s a fair comment that things are not as lush as they are in the spring and fall. Still, you’ll find banana and palm trees, grapes, plums, currents, fig and apple trees, various rhododendrons, lilac, peony, lilies, yucca, Jerusalem artichoke, ferns, yarrow, columbine, snap dragons, mallow, succulents, black eyed susie, trumpet vine, hazelnut, mock orange, various grasses including Pampas grass and much more. Too bad I didn’t get a chance to walk you around. It’s one of my favorite things to do.
My apologies on the lack of “fresh out of the oven” goodies. You must have read that from our website...which is now changed. Perhaps I will find time to bake in a slower season. We do feel there is a nice selection of cereal, oatmeal, breads, jam, nuts butter and honey, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, raisins, nuts, prunes, cranberries and seeds, fruit , milk, juice, tea and coffee.
Thanks again for your feedback. We do appreciate you taking the time.
