                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: Please visit our website www.handsomedans.ca to see our other cottages and availabilities and book online. About twenty years ago when I was still living on the farm in Saskatchewan I suggested to my Dad that we should turn our farm into a vacation farm. He liked the idea and over the next year or so we started to make some preliminary plans. Unfortunately due to change of life events, that never happened and a few years later I found myself living here on Vancouver Island. But operating a small vacation rental business stayed on my radar. Our cottage in Port Renfrew may be a long way from the farm in Saskatchewan but that hasn't changed the joy we get from hosting people from all over the world.

                  Why the Owner Chose Port Renfrew:
                  Port Renfrew has been our favourite destination for a day or overnight trip for all the years we have lived on Vancouver Island. We go often. Each time we visit, no matter what time of year we are consumed by the natural magnificence of this little community and the earthly beauty that surrounds it. We invite you to stay in our little cottage and enjoy a few days any time of the year. There is much to do and see. Or simply do nothing for extended periods of time, but sit quietly and listen to the ocean.
