What guests
are saying

We had a nice time, exploring the nice town. The atmosphere was really relaxing and friendly. With their insider tips we could explore the city and the area on a different way. It was a very good experience.

They are really easy-going and take care of their guests. We spoke a lot about many things and had a great week there, and weekend on the island, eating what we fished. It was a pleasure to stay and to spend time with them.

Get a glimpse of what you can experience

There’s nothing desolate about Desolation Sound. Such an ironic name as it’s a calm and protected place with the stunning coast mountains for a backdrop, full of islands and inlets that are uninhabited except for an abundance of wildlife. With the right tides on the sandy beaches, the water gets so deliciously warm, you’d feel like you’re in Hawaii!
