    "What can we say! It was the best get away that could be asked for. We were 3 Army friends that served 42 years ago at Work Point Barracks, along with our wives. In our 1 week there, we did not find the time to utilize all of the amenities that Richard offered us. We loved the 'Princess' cruising that lake. Beautiful view from the deck. Pictures did not justify what we had seen. The 3 bedrooms were great for all of our privacy and the house was spacious. We enjoyed walking the trails nearby, and once Richard had joined us along with more orientation of the area as we walked. Richard gave everyone that personal touch to top up our whole experience at WaterLily. Who knows, it could be an annual event for us all, and have a good excuse getting to Victoria more often!"

  • Perfect multi-generational family get-away on magical Pender!

    "Visiting Pender and staying at Brigitte's beautiful spot was one of our best family vacations ever (and we have traveled a lot!). My senior parents from Montreal joined my family of four (kids aged 11, 14) and small dog. We all had lots of room, cozy beds, and full kitchen to prepare meals including BBQ. Brigitte was warm and welcoming; very thorough and responsive to our every need. Her home is large, immaculate and provided a perfect homebase for adventure and exploration as well as a superb spot for rest and relaxation; Something for everyone, including a spectacular, expansive view (photos don't capture the feeling and beauty of this) over the San Juan islands and easy access to Poet's Cove Resort for kayaking, swimming, tennis, dining and time at the spa. Brigitte shared everything we needed to know to enjoy this wonderful island: Sea Star winery, hikes, Saturday market, restaurants (cafe at hope bay was our favourite!), art studio visits, where/when to buy fresh crab, etc. However, her vast selection of books, games and videos, combined with comfy seating, hot tub and ping pong table meant that we really didn't have to go anywhere, which was a great option when we wanted to stay put and enjoy quieter family time. Our thanks to Brigitte and the countless friendly islanders for offering such a fun and rewarding experience! Ps Brigitte is right when she states that water access is challenging. Even though we are experienced rock climbers and hikers, we accessed the waterfront at other points to ensure our safety. One last note: We really didn't miss these, but in utopia, would love to have stairs/dock to access the water for such activities as kayaking and use the gorgeous pool, as it is so tempting, especially for the kids, to see it and not be able to use it...But pool and kayaking at Poet's Cove (5 minute bike ride!) and water access close by were wonderful. Bottom line: Full 5 star rating for sure!"

  • Family GetAway

    "We spent Thanksgiving weekend at this home with 2 of our sons and their girlfriends. Great location, beautiful. well stocked kitchen, 2 very nice bathrooms. It was cool and rainy when we were there but the view was still gorgeous and we were able to occupy ourselves inside, playing some of the several supplied board games and ping pong. The Saturday market in Ganges was impressive and Moby's Pub in Ganges and the Seaside Cafe in Fulford both had good menus. Very nice, we hope to return."
