We stayed for for two nights and had a wonderful time! The cabin was very clean and cute. We would have stayed longer if we could have! Will definitely be back
We stayed for 4 nights and wish we would have stayed longer! Everything about Handsome Dan's is nice and easy. The cottage we had was just so perfect and clean and had everything we needed. Port Renfrew is a special little town with friendly people. There was something for us to everyday we where there. We could have stayed longer easy. Being from out of country and never have gone to Canada before, I had a lot of questions. The sweet " French Girl" was more then happy to help me out with everything I wanted to know. She give me lots of great info on places to check out as well. Can't wait to go back! Thank you Handsome Dan and Port Renfrew!
We had a great time in your home away from home. Relaxing and lots to explore in this area.
A hidden gem, that's for sure! Had a great time exploring. Found the gnarliest tree in Avatar Grove. The cottage was filled with everything needed to make a perfect stay. Thanks for three days of R&R, it's what everyone needs once in a while. We will be sure to share this secret with friends and family. We will be back!!!
Thanks for Handsome Dan & The French Girl :)
