  • Lovely Victoria

    "We have spent a very pleasant month in the Mermaid Suite. It is so well located for walking to all the downtown areas, only about 10 minutes to Goverment Street and all its attractions. There are many restaurants and Pubs almost around the corner, and we had great meals wherever we went. The Swans Pub's chowder is among the best we have encountered. Francis, the concierge for this unit, was most helpful and picked us up and delivered us to the airport on time and in good humour, inspite of the 4:30 am departure time. Colleen's recommendations for sight seeing and meals were really helpful. Some of the appliances could use a little upgrading. Namely the oven with its unpredictable flashing light and the vacuum cleaner which needs an overhaul. Otherwise this unit was very clean and comfortable. This was a great escape form the eastern winter."

  • Wonderful Retreat for a Group Old Friends

    "We were a group of 8 women who have known each other most of our lives. Once every couple of years we try to gather together to catch up. This was our second stay at Imagine Beach Cottage. We looked for something closer to Victoria that could match it and just didn't find anything that hit every point on our wish list while staying inside our budget (It worked out to about $25 each per night). Stay here if you want; a decent sized hot tub; to fall asleep watching the waves out the window; a private setting; a big fireplace; a (remarkably) well stocked kitchen (even an angel food cake tin... I mean, really!), a kitchen layout that lets us all cook together at once; enough sleeping spaces for everyone; a indoor space conducive to sitting around in a circle yet providing plenty of opportunity to go off in private groups of two or three; breathtaking natural beauty; pets allowed; and a store within walking distance. The booking and check-in process is very easy, our damage deposit was refunded as promised with no prompting, and the owner and manager are both super friendly and easy to deal with. My only complaint is that 3 days really wasn't enough. We will be back."

  • ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC HOUSE & ANEIMITIES-HAD THE TIME OF OUR LIVES!!!!!

    "We stayed at the Beach House June 20-23, 2014. It was as wonderful as described, but even better! A magical time was had by all. We were a party of 10. 5 adults, 5 children ranging in ages from 17 months to 17 years old. We got together as a family for the first time in years & had not met some of our grand children. I cannot begin to describe just how wonderful this house & all it contained was. The view alone was breathtaking, kitchen fantastic, bedrooms, baths, & all areas of the house were clean, neat & very well kept. The laundry & dishwasher were used every day. The kitchen had enough dinnerware for our army & just about everything possible we could have needed. Kerry & Christyne have added personal touches & tried to imagine everything possible for children & adults to keep themselves busy when not enjoying the beach. The chairs facing the beach in the picture show exactly what you will see. A wonderful spot to watch cruise ships, ferries, boats, etc sail by or just sit with a drink or coffee and contemplate life. The outdoor grill was great, as my son-in-law had caught salmon, & we cooked out in the evenings. The hot tub was extremely relaxing for the adults after a long day. The kayaks (life jackets provided), croquet, table tennis, volley ball, beach buckets & equipment, & all the numerous toys were an extra nice touch & kept even our littlest one entertained. Although there was a large video library, the TV did not come on once. There was so much for us to do & we knew immediately 3 days were not going to be enough. The wildlife coming onto the property was very exciting, especially for the 17 month old. Quallicum beach was a short trip from the house & afforded us a long low tide in the morning to hunt for sand dollars, starfish, shells, & crabs. The market at Coombs with the goats on the roof was fun & the variety of flavors of ice cream available were too numerous to mention. We plan to Visit this house yearly & will be staying for a week or two, if Kerry & Christyne will have us. We wish we hadn't waited this long, unfortunately jobs & being so far away made it difficult until this year. Again I can not say enough about our wonderful visit at this fantastic house. We have become repeat customers for ever!!"

  • Sitting On The Sea Shore

    "My wife and I just spent a wonderful month on the shores of the Salish Sea, across from Lasqueti Island in this immaculate well appointed house near Qualicum Beach. From early morning to last light there was always lots of action with the seals, sea lions, eagles, herons and seagulls . Whenever the wind picked up the kite and wind surfers showed up and provided entertainment for hours on end. The house was immaculate, 'well staged', very clean and completely comfortable. The kitchen, which also has a great ocean view, was well stocked with cooking utensils, dishes and even condiments to assist with preparation of meals."
