"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."

"I almost hesitate to tell you how great it is to stay at Don and Susan's place because it will be 100% booked in no time!! ( just kidding!). We are so pleased every time we stay there because of the location, the cleanliness and they way the place it outfitted. Having a top drawer coffer maker, we got spoiled by having espresso and cappuccino almost every morning. Add a two block walk to the wonderful Sidney bakery and you have it made! So handy to grocery stores and if you want to head into Victoria, just hop the bus ( be sure and take the 70X and sit up top for some awesome scenery!) Have $2.50 for exact fare and you are good to go! From comfortable linen's and towels to a wonderful king sized bed.. it was a great place to stay while visiting family in the area!
Thank you Don and Susan, we will be back "soon"!!"

"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."

"We recently stayed at this property when we visited the area for a family wedding. It was a great set up for three couples with each of us having our own bathroom. It is a beautiful house but needs a thorough cleaning (some spider webs, sticky floors and counter tops). We had hoped to use the bikes but one of them had a flat tire and we did not see a tire pump. Overall it is a very nice house and we had a pleasant stay."
