We feel blessed to have had another wonderful year with Ahoy Guesthouse. We have had guests periodically in the off season and we were fully booked all summer. Guests came from across North America and as far away as Belgium and France. Chatting with our guests and sharing information about Protection Island and the region has been a lot of fun. Our 12 year old was able to hang out with kids from all over – even having to communicate via hand signals and apps when she didn’t speak the same language as the guest children. We particularly enjoyed having some guests stay with us for the second year in a row.
Protection Island had another busy year and guests were able to enjoy musical events at the pub, a pride parade, local musicians playing outdoor concerts, boat races, and much more. All that on top of swimming in the summer, walking around the island, viewing wild deer and other animals, relaxing in front of the woodstove in winter, visiting Nanaimo and Newcastle Island, and more.
A huge thank you to all of our guests for the opportunity to host you, and to all of our friends and neighbours who have provided us with referrals and lots of other support.
