"Stone Tree Cottage and Gardens is everything in Canada that is truly beautiful. An astonishing and breathtaking slice of beauty surrounding and encompassing the Russell family and those fortunate enough to stay awhile in their cottage. Our Fall experience with them was a holiday dream filled with excitement and peace.
Keith and Becci Russell personify quality and style. It isn't very often that you come across a gem when searching in this human pan for gold. We discovered two & it was a pleasure to be in their company. Thoughtful, practical, kind, funny and informative. Their daily work ensures each guest is comfortable in their cottage and in their country. Stone Tree Cottage and Gardens provides an utterly ideal retreat for the naturalists nature lovers or simply someone needing to rejuvenate. It's also ideal for families, couples, singles and adventure seekers as it's close proximity to the surrounding valley and island is fantastic. Everything is within walking distance yet a feeling of distance, time and seclusion envelopes you as you enter through the handcrafted garden doors. The gardens are idyllic and will make your heart sing in appreciation of the beauty of your surrounds. The depth of colours and textures provide so much alluring beauty in every direction and Keith and Becci are on hand to answer any questions you may have about any subject, from botanical names of plants to wildlife spotting areas. They share their experience with zest.This sculptor and artist are clever, creative and practical and their suggestions are thoughtful and sound. Long time locals, this area is their playground and they can guide you off the beaten tracks and beyond, enriching your Canadian experience. If it's solitude you're seeking you won't see them as they are intuitive and respectful to those sharing their space. The cottage is perfectly placed and provides peace and security as well as comfort and care. Spacious, fresh and inviting.
Tucked in between the artsy, eclectic villages nestled at the feet of the majestic Beaufort Mountains and the busy bustle of Courtenay. Tucked in between clean sheets on a bed akin to a cloud. A home away from home.
If Canada and all the beauty of this country and it's people could be popped into an acre. This is it."

"We had a lovely time at Jacqueline's Riverfront Cottage. The location was ideal, close to town and right on the river -where we watched wildlife from the front windows and deck. The amenities were exactly as described -beds were comfortable, heat was easy to set, washrooms were great (loads of fluffy towels) and shower water pressure was perfect. Kitchen and its tools were perfect as well -one of our friends is a professional chef (executive chef at two restaurants) and she found everything she needed except for a blender (she had forgotten to bring her stick blender) or beater bars for the mixer. A very minor detail in a perfectly appointed kitchen.
Jacqueline was prompt in replying to any questions we asked. We had some difficulty in locating the cottage because I had not downloaded the mobile VRBO app to my phone (it was interrupted and I mistakenly thought it had successfully loaded). The app walks you through the check in process step by step; reminding you that the code to obtain the house key and the actual address has been emailed after your final payment date. I once again easily found the email (it had been two months prior!) and we settled in.
I want to just state that it rained hard for the entire weekend and the cottage was just perfect. The six of us were there to re connect and reminisce; there was plenty of space to do that in the front room.

"A group of us were looking for a upscale, waterfront house to serve as our home base to do some golfing, kayaking and fishing in the Courtenay and Campbell River area. The home was absolutely perfect for our needs. It accommodated 6, each in their very spacious and comfortable bedroom ---we also rented the detached suite. The owners were more than helpful in organizing our stay. Don't be concerned about the Royston address, it is very well located and close to restaurants etc. Generally, everyone was totally impressed with the whole area, and surprisingly, the full array of available oysters!!"

"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."
