Recent The Islands property reviews

  • Wonderful escape from the city

    "We have just returned from a 2 week stay at this wonderfully set and appointed cottage. We booked a year in advance after a work friend's high recommendation. We were not disappointed! The cottage is charmingly rustic yet has every modern amenity required for a comfortable stay with fully equipped kitchen, laundry, entertainment and wifi for your use. The owners are very warm and friendly and go about their animal/garden chores quietly in their adjacent property, making it easy to communicate any needs or to ask for any recommendations on local sightseeing etc. We enjoyed every chance to chat while relaxing in the back garden in between activities we had planned. We had beach days, lots of walks and exploring around local and further afield island areas including day visits to Victoria, Parksville and Nanaimo...all reasonably close car rides. For us, honestly it was one our best vacations ever. Living far away from island and area family it was a joy to be able to invite family for dinners and host- something we have not been able to do from standard hotel rooms. While very hot days saw the West facing kitchen/dining area heat uncomfortably, it was only at late afternoon and bedroom and livingroom areas were much cooler with options of microwaving or bbq to avoid heating kitchen for those times. Our teenage sons both really enjoyed their stay and were enthusiastic about returning for a future vacation. Our 10 month old puppy probably enjoyed his vacation the most, making friends with the family's small dog, and getting tons of walks in the bucolic countryside. Undeniably the best value for your vacationing dollar, our visiting family members loved the setting and thanked us for such a relaxing and pleasant time! We definitely plan to return and highly recommend staying if you are looking for a restful, enjoyable getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life."

  • Clean and convenient

    "Great location; quick walk to grocery store, coffee shop, Fisherman's Wharf, Parliament Building, and downtown area. Clean apartment and furnished with items of convenience. Bed and sofa could have been a tad more comfortable, but overall great choice if visiting downtown Victoria."

  • Victoria Juliet

    "My husband and myself recently stayed for 3 nights at the Victoria Juliet condo. The condo is as described - new, modern, clean and comfortable. The condo is very central to everything in downtown Victoria and we were happy with the convenient paid parking new door. Colin met us right on time with the key and information about the building and the area. I would recommend this condo to friends and relatives and will definitely be staying at the Juliet the next time we visit Victoria. Thanks Jennifer and Colin."

Mayne Island Travel Tips

Sheer Simplicity: Mayne Island Vacation Rentals

Settled in the Gulf of Georgia, among the southern regions of British Columbia, is Mayne Island; a picturesque stretch of sand and sun. This collection of lighthouses, heritage museums, and forestry provides the ideal location for those seeking a different kind of holiday. It will be a vacation without the frantic pace and even more frantic strangers. Surround yourself with local beauty and local charm, all from the comfort of one of the many Mayne Island vacation rentals.

Find Nature Once Again With Mayne Island Accommodations

For the family longing for a gentler escape, look no further than Mayne Island. There you will find an offering of biking trails (especially popular due to the distinct lack of traffic on the roads), pleasure cruises (complete with whale watching), and scheduled walkabouts. Learn of a celebrated history with such treats as the Plumper Pass Lockup, a jail turned museum. The famed Japanese Garden; which reflects the rare bursts of outside influences is also a family favorite. Discover this quaint destination and give your family something to enjoy every day. And, of course, enjoy every evening by returning to the comfort of your vacation home.

British Columbia Lodging Offers Elegance and Ease

Mayne Island is beautiful. Relax on the island your entire vacation to avoid the inconvenience of shuttling back to the mainland every afternoon, having to struggle to reach a hotel. Why not instead remain on the shoreline, nestled between the sea and spectacular views? Rental houses allow you to do that. Spend your vacation with the convenience of spacious rooms, centralized locations, and immediate access to fun.

Don’t waste your time with the common retreats. Flee instead to where there are languid hours, calm twilights, and the satisfaction of memories well made. Mayne Island is the perfect answer to your family’s vacation woes. It’s waiting.
