Subject: Vancouver Island recommendations
Hi Ziners.. We recently returned from a wonderfully relaxing week on Vancouver Island, and I thought I would share some accommodation recommendations in case other Ziners were contemplating a visit to this incredibly beautiful part of British Columbia.

For 3 days we based ourselves at the Cedarwood Inn close to Sidney, very convenient to both the Swartz Bay ferry terminal and Victoria airport. Perfect for daytrips to Victoria, Saltspring Island and exploring the Saanich Peninsula.

Tigh-Na-Mara is about 35 min north of Nanaimo in the Parksville/Qualicum Beach area. A great location for daytrips to Port Alberni, for driving the Oceanside Highway to Campbell River and to either ferry terminal in Naniamo.

Both properties were quite different in ambience, but equally excellent as to amenities, hospitable service and location.
