Interaction with guests

I am available to provide information about the area - from great hikes, places to eat, quiet areas to relax and enjoy whale watching, berry picking etc. I have lived in the area for a long time and have worked in tourism for many years. I also understand that this is your vacation - and maybe you want to just lie low - and be left alone.
