"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."

A relaxing stay with the odd long-distance bike ride thrown in for good measure ;)
"My husband and I stayed at Timmerhouse first week in September. We have visited the Gulf Islands before, each time without a car, so decided to rent bikes and get around Denman pedalling. Picked up the bikes from Hornby Island and had them for a week. Got to see everything we wanted to see and even the weather, which wasn't the best, didn't deter us!
Timmerhouse was comfortable and very relaxing. It had everything we needed for our stay. We didn't get to use the bbq or have meals on the patio as the weather wasn't really good enough, but we enjoyed sitting by the window (French doors) and taking in the view. There is so much natural light in the property and out of every window you see trees!
Highlights for us included Fillongley Provincial Park (lovely beach!), Graham Lake, and the Cardboard House Café (Hornby Island). We got our provisions from the grocery store on Denman (great selection of breads) and picked up a few things from the Co-op on Hornby Island when we were there - also visited the Hornby Island winery where we got a couple of bottles of very nice fruit wine!
Shelley and Morley were great hosts and went out of their way to help us - thanks for the ride from / to the ferry port on our arrival / departure (that was one journey we weren't able to do on the bikes!).
Hornby Island is a must if you stay on Denman - a short ferry ride away, and interesting to see the contrast between the two islands.
All in all an enjoyable stay in a lovely part of the world - we intend to go back and see more of it."

"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."
