Our family purchased our cottage because we love the small seaside community of Port Renfrew and all the outdoor recreation it provides. When at the cottage we explore the beaches, hike through the majestic tall trees, watch the fishermen bring in their catch at the marina and so much more. When we're not able to be at the cottage we welcome you to stay and enjoy Port Renfrew.

Port Renfrew is only a two hour scenic drive from Victoria. There are lots of activities readily accessible for the outdoor enthusiasts as well as to those just wanting a quite, beautiful place to relax and take it all in. Gorgeous sandy beaches, fresh water lakes, and great wildlife viewing all await you. There's a variety of well marked and maintained hiking trails including the world renowned West Coast Trail and Juan De Fuca Marine Trail as well as short day trails that take you along the beach, beside rivers and waterfalls or through the old growth forest. In the community of Port Renfrew you can purchase some food items at The General store..a very small grocery store with a liquor outlet. For dining out there's some good eateries like The Renfrew Pub, Coastal Kitchen Cafe, Tomi's Home Cooking and Brdgeman's. These eateries offer great food and are a short walk or drive from the cottage. PLEASE NOTE: There is no cell service in the maps may not be so handy.
