"It is hard to say what the best elements were, since we had such a terrific time! Each bedroom had a comfortable queen bed in it, plus a bunk bed-not granny's old hand-me-downs! The house has a large and well appointed kitchen with all the necessary items in it to prepare your usual food. The living room is spacious, and comfortable. The house was very clean, and all our needs were met.
The swimming area is excellent with a large dock and lots of toys to play with. There is no beach-just a stoney area-so not ideal for toddlers. There is a log a boom to delineate the swimming area, a diving board, a small raft and the cleanest, clear water imaginable. Even when the weather was not perfect, the water was inviting. There are a couple of river kayaks, a paddle boat and a row boat available as well. Everything is in good condition. Best of all was the raft, nicknamed Tippy Island which we had lots of fun on, as it see-sawed from one side to the other challenging our balance skills!
Best of all, the owners, Kim and Dan were very welcoming and helpful. I would definitely recommend this to others. There is a little noise transfer from downstairs, and the house feels a little dark, but otherwise is very comfortable and a very good value for the price. An excellent choice for our family, with children aged 11, 8, and 6."

"We were joining family for Christmas - 10 in all. This was a great option for us as large meals and Christmas activities for the group were all in a large house on the water.
Small one bedroom with Kitchenette. Kitchen is well appointed and definitely sufficient for breakfast and lunch and easy suppers. Very comfortable bed and modern bathroom.
Owners are very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely return here."

"We truely enjoyed our stay with our daughter (18 months). The location just across from the National Park with nice quiet trails and beach access made it almost unneccessary to go anywhere else. From Parksville it is only a short drive in all directions so we did go to see other parts of the island,too. The cottage itself is equipped better than I could ever have expected it to be. Beside all cleaning supplies we truely appreciated beach towels, toys, swimming noodles etc. I haven't ever stayed in a holiday house I didn't miss anything in the kitchen! The bed was comfi, the bathroom really nice-we were totally happy with the cottage."
