The Lair is one of our pet friendly accommodation in Port Renfrew and can accommodate two comfortably or a family of four. It is a modern cottage newly built in 2011, including propane cooking stove and propane fireplace. It is furnish with a fully equipped kitchen, queen size bed in a separate bedroom and double hide-a-bed in living area. T.V with DVD movies, blue-ray player, Netflix and WiFi are provided.
Outside you will find a large front deck with a built in fire pit, an outdoor propane heater, BBQ and lots of lounge chairs make this place ideal for entertainment. Plenty firewood is stock at the back of the cottage for the fire pit and (free of charge).
The Lair also has a long driveway almost 50ft long so can easily accommodate a boat or any other long vehicles. In December of 2012 The French Girl's Lair became even cozier when we installed a gas fireplace in the family room.
Exceptional Pacific Northwest Rainforest natural experience, hiking, beach combing, surfing nearby, storm watching at Botanical Beach, world class salmon and halibut fishing in season (may-Oct), abundant wildlife and the magnificent forest of Avatar Grove; a photographer's dream.
Five minutes of walking from the cottages will get you to the Pacific Gateway Marina if you’re going fishing or you want to take in the sea air. Tomi's dinner and The Coastal Kitchen Café are a five minute walk away if you get tired of your own cooking. The pub at the PortRenfrew Hotel is maybe a 15 minute walk.
You can get a few basic groceries at the Real Goods Market (open in season only) next to Tomi's dinner. A bigger selection of groceries including beer, wine and liquor can be bought at the General Store on Parkinson Road (open from 11am-7pm everyday). It’s a good idea though to stock up on groceries on your way to Port Renfrew in Sooke or Cowichan Lake if you are travelling from the other direction. Of course everyone takes credit cards, debit cards and that ancient currency, cash.

Thank you handsome Dan for thinking of everything. We had all the necessary items for a glamping adventure and then some. After exhausting the kids on our outdoor adventures, it was wonderful to rest and enjoy the comforts of the Cabin.
I will be telling everyone I know.
We needed a nice, warm, peaceful sanctuary for staging our winter outdoor adventuring in the area. This cabin was perfect! It had everything we needed to warm up and enjoy our freshly caught seafood and then nestle in with a movie. Check-in/Check-out process is as easy as it gets. Very good value for the cost. Highly recommended. I expect to be coming back.

Most comfortable bed ever. Clean, modern, with fully-equipped kitchen.
This was our first trip to Port Renfrew, made in mid October 2016. We highly recommend reserving The French Girls Lair thru Handsome Dan's since it is "cozy", well appointed, clean and well equipped. The check-in process was simple, smooth and painless---all of our requests were very well handled by the staff involved. Our stay was comfortable and situated in a natural and pristine environment. The area is quiet and peaceful and provides ample opportunity for enjoying the outdoors! Many thanks.
We stayed three nights, very cozy with the fireplace. The cabin is fully equipped and well laid out, everything needed to make a meal. Very peaceful and quiet but well situated to local amenities. Sun came out when we were on the beaches and when it rained we read or napped. Would stay here again
