Coastal Retreat Nestled in the Trees
This space came to us mostly furnished, but it needed that final push to make it truly stand out from the crowd. Our designers transformed this space with a very minimal budget and took it from great to one-of-a-kind, with local art, feature paint walls, hanging surfboards, and little touches to add to the guest experience, like a popcorn and coffee station.
$350 - $650
The owners wanted to cater to children, and thought the best way to do so was with a bunk bed. However, the problem with a bunk bed is that it screams ‘children’s room’ - so while you may then attract guests with children, you can turn away groups of adult guests, thus reducing your occupancy, and with it your revenue.
In order to maximize occupancy and revenue, we wanted to cater to both families and groups of adults. Our team disassembled the bunk beds, created a feature wall with panelling and paint, and transformed this bedroom from boring bunk bed room to welcoming surf shack room for adults and kids alike.
In addition to the children’s bedroom, this space lacked what many spaces lack - character, and a feeling of love. Despite having all the basics - beds, linens, lights, the space still seemed unfinished, like something was missing. We were given a small budget to transform the space before launch, so we focused on injecting personality into the lodge.
We added pops of colour with accent walls - drawing inspiration from the lodge’s close proximity to the beach - added surfboards, colourful (and practical) hot tub towels, local brewery posters to the bar, live plants, colourful shower curtains and added fun guest features like a board game area, a popcorn station, and coffee station.
All these small details add up to a big impact.
Real reviews from real people. See for yourself.
What a fantastic place. So convenient. Night time hot tub with the kids and about a Gazillion stars. its one of those places where if you dont leave the entire stay, you wont feel like you missed out. The main room is readers delight.. cedar and natural light and zen vibes all around. We brought a small bluetooth radio but having music or a cheap guitar would certain complement this house. Host was fantastic, very responsive and helpful. Place was very clean. Highly recommend a stay.
This place is breathtaking! A real gem. We loved the high ceilings, large windows, and stylish decor. The bedrooms were so quiet and comfortable. The hot tub was so nice after an Oceanside hike. Robyn is so kind and hospitable, and really goes out of her way to make you feel at home and cared for. This is the type of place where you could unwind and stay for at least 3-4 days. Our only regret is that we didn’t stay longer! Can’t wait to come back.
Our stay at the lodge was fantastic and exceeded our expectations. The building was a beautiful example of west coast architecture in a peaceful setting. Further to this, there were lots of throughtful touches throughout the home that made our stay more comfortable. Host was super responsive to questions and made sure we had what we needed. Depsite some (unavoidable) power outages we had a relaxing and enjoyable time. Would highly recommend this stay and would definitely book again ourselves!
Absolutely beautiful place for a getaway. So spacious and wonderful open concept for a group to enjoy. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking tools and spices as well as tea and coffee. Host has thought of everything when it comes to guest comfort! We would come again.
