Interaction with GuestsThe Funky Frog is a B&B, so we reside upstairs on the premises. We have a passion for travel, not only for the rich, diverse cultural experiences and the culinary pleasures each country has to offer, but also for the connections with people from all corners of the globe and the inevitable story-telling that results. However, we also have a deep respect for our guests privacy, so if it's quiet solitude you prefer...you can find it at the Funky Frog B&B. The NeighborhoodOur B&B is set in a quiet cul-de-sac about 2 km from a pebble beach and several marinas and a 10 minute drive to the town of Duncan. Explore the Cowichan Valley's many culinary offerings: award-winning wineries, a cidery and brandy distillery, fine restaurants featuring delights made from local fare and the many farm and garden markets to enjoy whole food from the earth. A true delight for "locavores". If it is the outdoors you prefer, explore the nearby bays, coves and marinas, do some hiking and cycling on the Trans-Canada trail with its newly restored Kinsol trestle, or enjoy kayaking, fishing, or golfing. Get up close and personal with the birds of prey at the Raptor Centre or go on a whale-watching adventure.
