Overview
This bed and breakfast is situated in a residential area, about a 3-minute walk from the White Rock Promenade, the oceanfront boardwalk. Offering just two rooms, this property is well suited for guests who prefer more intimate accommodations.

This property is 100% smoke free and both rooms include free Wi-Fi, bathrobes, slippers, a coffeemaker, a TV and a DVD player, private balcony and an en suite bathroom. One suite also includes a jetted tub. Rooms are furnished with one queen bed or one king bed.

Free off-street parking is available on site and pets are not permitted. Rooms are on the second floor of this property and it does not have an elevator.

The free breakfast is served daily. There is no on-site restaurant, however, there are several restaurants located within a 5-minute walk of this property. 

The Semiahmoo Shopping Centre is 5 minutes away by car, while the South Surrey Athletic Park is about a 7-minute drive away. The Peace Portal Golf Club is 10 minutes away by car, and the Canada/U.S. border crossing at Peace Arch is a 9-minute drive away.
