The Whale Pod Chalet is appropriately named after the pods of Orca whales that routinely feed on the fish at the bottom of the cliff and can be seen from the Chalet. The Whale Pod Chalet is a full lodge rental with four floors.
From top to bottom:
The top floor has the Tower Room, a large jacuzzi hot tub on an amazing sundeck, and The Shangri-la Room. The Shangri-la Room is sizeable with a queen-sized bed and a futon. The Tower is isolated from the rest of the house on the top deck. It has a double bed and is the highest point of the Chalet. It offers a 360 degree view and is the best room for falling asleep while watching the stars. The jacuzzi hot tub is always drained and thoroughly cleaned between guests. It is perfect for relaxing at the end of the day with a glass of wine and soaking in the beauty of the myriad of stars. On the sundeck next to the hot tub is a glass umbrella table and chairs.
On the second floor, our Birds Eye Maple Suite includes a queen-sized bed, and a private bathroom with a shower and large jacuzzi tub with a window front. It also has a fireplace that connects on the other side of the wall with the living room. The living room is a common space with ample room. It has several couches and a smart TV with access to Netflix. It also has a double bed for extra guests and a half bathroom. Extended off of the living room are two spacious decks on both sides of the house, the front deck overlooks the channel and has multiple chairs and a glass umbrella table.
On the first floor are two bedrooms, both with queen-sized beds, the kitchen, dining room, and south-facing grand solarium. The kitchen is very modern and equipped with all the necessary appliances including: two working stoves, coffee makers and a dishwasher. The dining room is attached to the kitchen and has a large table that can seat up to 10 people at once. The solarium faces the ocean and is well furnished with multiple couches, chairs, tables, and even a queen-sized marriage bed. On the back side of the first floor is a deck with a table and chairs and full-sized propane grill.
The ground floor has one large bedroom with a queen-sized bed and fully functional sauna.
Privacy is assured for family reunions, yoga retreats, anniversaries, corporate events, a luxurious getaway, and possibly wedding estate rentals, as the house is situated on a large estate acreage.
