  • Sandylands familymoon review

    "Dear Sandy, It was such a great pleasure to stay in your lovely home, for the third time! We couldn't imagine, coming to BC and not staying at Sandylands. We cannot believe the month went so quickly, but you know what they say about time and fun. It was great to get to know the neighbor also and we had some great feasts. Sandylands is a welcome home, even for baby, who sure did take a shine to you and felt just as home here, as back in the UK. Can't wait to come back......Till next time! (Honeymoon/Familymoon) PS: We just let you win at croquet so you wouldn't feel bad This property is great for exploring Vancouver, it's just far enough outside the city to relax and have some peace and quite but has great transport links to a variety of local sights and places of extreme wow factor beauty! We recommend rocky point for family picnics and days out, as well as Stanley park! (you can Travel for one zone on weekends!!) try the you gotta eat here web site for great places to eat round town, highly recommended is Montana grill at the local mall and steam works at waterfront vancouver! Local sushi delivery to Sandys was also awesome :)"

  • Excellent Vacation Rental

    "We stayed at the Sunset Piper from 7/11-7/19 and it was truly amazing! The property is breathtaking and the views are stunning on all sides. We had a large family reunion outside on the huge property and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house is very comfortable and accomodating for our large family. The beautiful Melmurby Beach is less than 5 minutes away and lots of free parking and no crowds to deal with. The owners were so easy to deal with and responded to our requests immediately. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting and entertainment by the house "Piper" Harold at our family party. He was a huge hit with all the guests! Would definitely recommend this vacation rental as it was truly a week to remember."

  • A perfect cottage for a family gathering

    "Not sure what we can add to what people have already said who have fully described the property... Rowanlea is a classic traditional Canadian cottage – the kind they don’t build any more. The kitchen is exceptional, replete with cooking equipment and large pantry type cupboards containing plenty of crockery, glasses and commonly needed staples such as spices. It has a gigantic working counter open to the dining room with its huge table and ten chairs. When you add the BBQ outside it allowed easy cooking even for a crowd. Depending on the weather we were able to switch between eating in the dining room and on the adjacent rear deck and even with a large group have everyone seated together at a single table. This was very special. Laundry and bathroom facilities are very good. Loads of sleeping spaces are dotted between the two levels in both the main cottage and the boat house. Loved the books, artworks, musical instruments, comfortable furniture, bits and pieces from the family's life that we were allowed to share. Lights, electricity coped admirably with our demands. Hot water nearly did. We did have more people than usual staying at the cabin so the hot water situation nudged past the critical point. Loved the added space of the boathouse and the privacy of the dock. So many special spaces on the grounds for a little privacy, a fire at night, all kinds of games on the lawn, accessible parking, treed site, boats, lake views (those sunsets!). The amount of room available allowing all to have a private space should be noted. The cottage is easy to reach by routes both direct and scenic from the city and stores for all needs are found within an easy drive. There is a large garbage holder at the road that safely houses filled garbage, recycling and compost containers until collection day. The cottage is on well water but a water cooler/dispenser is provided. In short, Rowanlea was just about perfect for our family gathering and will be remembered fondly for years."
