"We enjoyed our two week stay in this well cared for older home. The charming cottage is located within walking distance to downtown Courtenay's amenities including shops, cafes and groceries. Situated in a pleasantly landscaped yard, screened by hedges for privacy, we enjoyed the quiet location. The spacious interior has ample room and adequate cookware to prepare meals, bake a cake or entertain guests. All the appliances work well and the bathroom's clawfoot tub is wonderful for relaxing after a busy day of sight seeing. It's a bonus to have laundry on premises. We have been traveling for 15 months, so appreciated the space to spread out awhile. Maureen is always helpful and concerned about her guests comfort. When the temperature dropped below freezing she called to make certain we were staying warm enough. For convenience to downtown Courtenay and local Farmer's Market, this is hard to beat. We highly recommend you give it a try when visiting in the area. If it's not available, we also have experienced the Chocolate Cottage and it is equally wonderful, just smaller."

"Eine sehr gut ausgestattete Ferienwohnung auf dem großen, sehr gepflegten Grundstück der Eigentümer in einem seperaten Haus. Die Eigentümer sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit; der von ihnen genutzte Garten einschließlich des wunderschönen Naturteiches kann von den Gästen mit benutzt werden. Abhängig von der eigenen Interessenlage bleibt die Privatsphäre von den Vermietern ungestört oder sie sind offen für Kontakt und Gespräche. Die Lage auf Vancouver Island ist u.E. ideal zum Erkunden der Insel. Es hat uns hervorragend gefallen; gern kommen wir wieder."

"We stayed here for 10 days while visiting my parents in Courtenay. The location is great, the view is spectacular. The kids loved exploring the beach line and watching all the activities on the water (seals, eagles, kayakers, float planes etc....). There is plenty of parking but you are next to a busy road. The traffic dies down pretty good in the evening and we had no problem sleeping even with the window open.
The unit was surprising larger than we expected, with all the amenities for a relaxing stay. Unit gets a lot of sun so it can heat up, but there are plenty of fans to help cool down. We didn't use the cozy fire place, but I bet it is great on a winter evening. Everything was very neat and clean. Check in/ out was flawless.
We will certainly be renting here again."

"Just got back to the UK following a week in this delightful cottage. Having spent the previous week in Burnaby and been in Vancouver every day. We had a lovely relaxing time. Vancouver Island was very quiet. We were a party of four adults with different interests and we found the location and the peace suited everyone. The cottage is very well equipped and there are plenty of coffee shops, supermarkets etc. nearby. We walked into town, about 3 minutes, and also had a car to go further afield. If you are interested in nature this place is perfect, saw bald eagles and hummingbirds and many other species. Thank you Jacqueline, the cottage is clean, comfortable and well equipped, garden is lovely too."
