"My husband and I spent a week early in May, 2015 at this delightful home situated on the northern tip of the Saanich Peninsula (overlooking Saltspring Island). The vista was spectacular, with a beach to walk on and a deck to survey the otters playing and birds caring for their young. The house was very well kept and had all the amenities one could want.
We are active people and the home provided us with lots of chances to cycle, run and walk. It is close to Sidney so we were easily able to pick up groceries, go to the local theatre and browse in bookstores.
The owner was helpful, informative and readily available if we had any questions.
I highly recommend this home as a getaway place to either relax on the deck and/or indulge in an active lifestyle!"

"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"!!"

"We rented this lovely home for a week the past two summers. The home is large, beautifully maintained, and has stunning ocean views from most rooms. It also features a gourmet kitchen, hot tub, games room, media room, and a trampoline (which our children loved!). The house was very clean and inviting. The home owners are also wonderful to deal with--very friendly and responsive. Without reservation--this is an exceptional "home away from home" and we hope to come back again the future."

"We arrived at Sandy Beach House this June and we're delighted with our stay! It is approximately 20 minutes from Qualicum Beach and just 5-10 minutes up island to Bowser. There is no coffee pot, but excellent coffee can be found at the Bean Counter in Bowser. There is also a great grocery and liquor store up that way.
The house is very spacious with three bedrooms and a large bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped with laundry and dishwasher. We stayed with two young children and two seniors. We loved the privacy of this house and beach. When there are renters upstairs, it can be a bit noisy, but not any more than any hotel we've stayed in. When the tide is out the beach is paradise! Our kids (and us Adults as well!) loved finding Clams, crabs, sand dollars and all kinds of treasures. We enjoyed fires by the beach at night and found an abundance of firewood and propane to use. There is awesome fresh seafood at Buckley Bay and we loved buying shrimp and prawns right off the dock at Comox Wharf. We rented a paddle board from Courtney (three days for $80) and they were experts about strapping it safely to our rental van. The trip to the beach is pretty rocky, my parents used walking sticks they found along the beach to help them get up and down.
This house offers great location, space, privacy and value. We can't wait to return!"
