Q. Can I reserve a playpen?
Overseas Guests: Our guests from overseas have first priority as they can not pack a play pen (and note we host many overseas guests all year round). We still cannot guarantee a playpen will be available, so please confirm before-hand.
Domestic Local Guests: We ask all local domestic guests traveling with a vehicle to bring their own play pen and anything to do with child safety, such as gates etc.
Q. Is there dishware and cutlery provided at The Cabins?
Q. Are there bed linens and towels provided at The Cabins?
Q. What should I bring to enjoy the coast?
Binoculars for wildlife viewing
A water bottle & a DAY PACK for some snack foods and a warm top/jacket
Sturdy shoes or good hiking boots or water shoes
In summer; beach attire, blankets & towels
Raincoats/pants and rubber boots are a good idea ~ umbrellas are not
There are local convenience stores that you can rent from while visiting, however, our selection is not that of a larger city.
Pack to dress in layers. During the winter, it is most often mild/warm, but can become much colder when the skies are clear. Carry an additional light jacket or a wind/rain shell. In winter, snow may be experienced through the Alberni Valley… Good winter tires are recommended from December through January.
Q. Is there maid service at the cabins?
Answer: Here at The Cabins we refer to ‘maid service’ as ‘Cabin Care’.
– Our Cabin Care team will remove garbage and recycling (beverage containers only) from Ocean Front Cabins # 1, # 3, and # 4 automatically every 3rd day (after every 2 nights sleep) due to their locations farther away from the bear safe bins/check in centre.
– All other units can take their own garbage to the bin(s) or request a pick up.
– Towels for any units will be replaced upon request.
– Further attention (cabin/suite cleaning or sheets changed, etc.) can be scheduled at $ 25 per visit.
Need something – please ask.
We have simplified our ‘Cabin Care’ due to feedback from guests over many years. We provide your stocked and clean self-sufficient accommodation and leave you alone. If you need something – please just ask.
We ask all of our guests to leave their units as tidy as possible out of respect for the Cabin Care Team that will clean after your departure.
Pets on the furniture, smoking inside, dirty dishes and anything else that requires excessive cleaning/attention; will result in additional charges.
