Children enjoy the opportunity to play with the frisbee and balls provided and run barefoot on the large lawn. You can also sit in the comfortable deck chairs on the lawn and enjoy the view, or barbecue outdoors using the large Weber grill. Beyond the lawn you can sit around the campfire circle on your own secluded beach, toast marshmallows, and watch for the marine mammals that swim in to the bay - seals, sea lions, our resident otters, porpoise, and even whales.
You can pursue any of a wide variety of outdoor activities. You can fish from the beach in front of the house. If you bring your own sea kayak or rent one from a local company, you can launch from the beach in front of the house and paddle down the peninsula to Chilkat Islands Marine Park.
Indoors, the spotting scope and binoculars provided invite you to notice the wildlife outside your windows. You can check your email or surf the web using the WiFi, or watch a DVD on one of the house's two television sets. Television programming is not available, but the house is provided with a large collection of movies and more may be checked out in town.

Your hosts live on Paradise Cove a few minutes' walk from the Paradise Cove House. We enjoy the outdoor recreational opportunities available here.
