  • PEACE ON EARTH!

    "The Boathouse is a place unto itself. It is a tranquil, peaceful and quaint. There is no other place where I would be willing to walk outside to get to the bathhouse. Oddly, here it just seems natural. The cottage and the bathhouse were squeaky clean. The chairs in the cottage's library were fantastically comfortable and when combined with the view of the bay made for the perfect place to linger over morning coffee. One of my fondest memories of The Boathouse will always be sipping wine while sitting in rocking chairs on the dock. I would caution those who want to experience this great place to pack lightly. The steps down to the cottage are many, but the thoughtful landings make it less of a problem. Harvey and Jean were wonderful hosts. Thank you, Harvey, for suggesting the Brentwood Pub, for dinner. We ended up eating there three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it each night. Thank you, Jean, for telling Curt about Cathedral Grove on Highway #4. We stopped there on our way back to Nanaimo from Ucluelet and loved it. What a beautiful place! It was a peaceful and special place - just like The Boathouse."

  • Wonderful Honeymoon

    "My fiance and I are from Oklahoma, and we wanted to do something a little out of the ordinary for our honeymoon and we settled on Victoria (which was an excellent idea) and ended up in this loft! It was my first VRBO experience so I don't have anything to go off of, but I can definitely say that this loft was everything I hoped it would be. Location - PERFECT - we bought some bus tickets when we arrived, and we didn't even end up using them all because we could walk virtually everywhere we wanted to go! The loft itself is beautiful and the pictures hardly do it justice. It's in a gated building and we felt much more secluded than we would have in a hotel of twice the cost... I don't think I even recall seeing/hearing any neighbors. In regards to noise from the street, I would say it's just something you have to expect being in a busy part of town, we definitely didn't have a hard time sleeping! My only critique would be the the property management company. I informed them about 2 weeks prior to departure that my flight will be arriving around 9 pm (they had never asked what time I was arriving, that I recall), and for some reason they kind've panicked and decided to mail me my room keys to Oklahoma so they wouldn't have to meet me that late in Victoria to get me the keys. The keys didn't make it to OK in time, so I ended up having to hunt down my room key at the airport because they decided to drop off a spare key for me to pickup. Ended up being an extra hour of hassle to find the dang keys, after 6 hours of traveling... not what you want to worry about first thing you arrive to your honeymoon destination. Again, the loft is everything I could have imagined, just be sure you work out all of your arrival/departure details LONG before you get there! Apparently it's a little too much work to get your client's their room key after 5pm."

  • Great place to stay and relax!!

    "We stayed here with friends and family in March 2015. We were made to feel very and home and welcome. Shorewind Place had everything that you would expect and more. The hot tub is amazing and helped us relax even more. I would highly recommend Shorwind Place to friends and family. Thanks for having us!!"

  • Exceeded expectations!

    "Our 4 night stay was wonderful! We were thrilled when we arrived at the beach house at how spacious it was and the fantastic location. I was traveling with my two young children and the playroom was such a help in keeping them entertained. The beach was just a couple steps away and the close proximity to the stores was an added bonus. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked and I managed to pull off a pot roast dinner for 6 with ease. Kristina was very prompt in communicating and I very much appreciated her accommodating our travel schedule. Everything about our trip was wonderful and we look forward to returning again next year!"
