FAMILY REUNION 2020
WHERE TO STAY:
RVs and Camping
If you have tent trailer or an RV there is room for 2 or 3 on the property.
If you like to sleep in a tent, there is room on the property for a few. Maybe that might be fun for some of the teenagers?
If you want to camp with or without a trailer, Descanso Bay Regional Campground is just a few minutes from Sarah’s. They take reservations 6 months in advance. It’s very popular so you would definitely need to reserve ahead, as soon as they open booking.
A lovely place called The Haven
For everyone else we are hopeful we can book at a lovely place very close by, The Haven. It is on the water, less than a block down the road. They have cabins and other types of accommodation. I’ve reached out to them but so far they are asking customers to wait until January 1st to book. Sarah and I will stay on that and keep you posted.
In the meantime, it’s best to make a booking at a different place to make sure you have a place to stay. Gabriola gets very busy in July and August so we need to get reservations in place.
We suggest The Surf might to be a good choice. There are three cabins there and rooms with beautiful ocean views inside the lodge. Also a dining room. It will be slightly rustic but only 5 minutes from Sarah’s cabin. They allow cancellations with full refunds up to a few days before but double check that when you book. Here is a link to their website: https://www.surflodgegabriola.com/
There are other options available on the Island and likely through Airbnb but check the distances, the island is bigger than you might expect and it will be nice if you don’t have to drive far especially in the evening after dinner and drinks.
I will post other options if when I find them or please feel free to send me suggestions and I will put them on here.
We hope that The Haven can accommodate everyone, so when making other reservations ensure they can be cancelled with a full refund.
Stay in touch with questions or thoughts
Feel free to email or text me especially if you have questions about the Surf. I phoned them and got lots of details about the size of the cabins, which rooms are quiet etc.
