"My family and I traveled to Sooke this month as we are looking at moving there. We decided to stay at Surfside Cottage so we could all stay together (my husband, 3yr old daughter and my parents). The cottage was perfect for us. It became a home away from home as we really looked forward to returning in the evenings. Even going so far as being glad when dinner plans fell through so we could stay at the cottage by the fire and just relax. We used all three rooms and while we weren't sure what to expect with the "teen room" it worked for us as my parents stayed in that room. It's a small room in the lower level of the house with an outside door and it's own small bathroom. The beds are a little smaller than a normal twin but my father, who is 5'10" fit just fine. The 2 rooms upstairs are large and have plenty of room for luggage. Everything was provided as well as far as kitchen gadgets and dishes. All the beds in the house are extremely comfortable and everything was sparkling clean. It is a bit of a walk from the parking area to the house down a path and it's so worth it.
This was all about the view though. We even saw a whale making his way by on our last day. He was so close we could have thrown a rock and hit him. Standing at the living room windows with the fire crackling, watching the whale slowly swim by was something we'll remember forever! Although an orca or 2 would have been even better! :)
It was relaxing, quiet and peaceful and we appreciated it very much. We will be back once our house sells so we can go house hunting yet again!
Thank you Ines!"

"This wonderful waterfront home perched on a cliff overlooking the Queen Charlotte Channel was the perfect weekend getaway! We were very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance and creature comforts of this great cottage. We sat on the deck all day Sat. and allowed the sun and gentle lapping of the waves to lull us away and really relax. Thanks again and it was a very memorable time on Bowen Island."

"This VRBO is perfect for those who want a view, want a quiet, safe and beautiful neighborhood, but desire to be close to everything! The view of the islands every morning was so refreshing. This VRBO has a great layout for those traveling with kids or another couple, as there is ample space between the bedrooms, kitchen and living room. Privacy can also be found in their lovely backyard. Perfect for kids, as it comes equipped with a high chair and small room that I found perfect for the pack n play! And nice owners :)"

"We had a wonderful time in Qualicum beach. This home had everything we needed for a wonderful relaxing family vacation. It was very clean and well equipped. The beach was a great spot for seachring for sand dollars and other interesting sea creatures. I would highly recommend this home and would return again if my travels bring me back to Vancouver Island."
