  • PEACE ON EARTH!

    "The Boathouse is a place unto itself. It is a tranquil, peaceful and quaint. There is no other place where I would be willing to walk outside to get to the bathhouse. Oddly, here it just seems natural. The cottage and the bathhouse were squeaky clean. The chairs in the cottage's library were fantastically comfortable and when combined with the view of the bay made for the perfect place to linger over morning coffee. One of my fondest memories of The Boathouse will always be sipping wine while sitting in rocking chairs on the dock. I would caution those who want to experience this great place to pack lightly. The steps down to the cottage are many, but the thoughtful landings make it less of a problem. Harvey and Jean were wonderful hosts. Thank you, Harvey, for suggesting the Brentwood Pub, for dinner. We ended up eating there three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it each night. Thank you, Jean, for telling Curt about Cathedral Grove on Highway #4. We stopped there on our way back to Nanaimo from Ucluelet and loved it. What a beautiful place! It was a peaceful and special place - just like The Boathouse."

  • Wonderful time!

    "We enjoyed the quiet setting and the beautiful show home. We appreciated all the amenities, including a small step stool (handy for two petite women!!). Hope to visit again sometime! Thank you."

  • Sweet Log Suite

    "Our one week stay at the Log Suite was better than we expected. My wife and I enjoyed Ruma's wonderful hospitality in a modern suite with all amenities. The space is well-lit, clean and fully functional with great attention to detail. The hostess is knowledgeable and charming, adding to the lovely experience we had. We recommend a stay with Ruma in the beautiful town of Sooke as a perfect stress reducer."

  • a wee bit of Paradise !

    "My husband and I currently live in Calgary but I was born and raised in Vancouver. I had longed for the ocean and so we decided to search for a sea side cottage to rent for a few days. We were so fortunate to find Dolphin Bay Cottage in quiet and lovely Nanoose Bay and it's wonderful owners Karin and Keith. From the moment we entered this quaint, cozy and serene cottage we were in love with not only it but the spectacular view of the ocean and the distant shores of the Mainland. The cottage is clean, warm and inviting and the seaside details charming, everything is provided for and easy to find. One of the best spots in the cottage is the super comfortable lounger placed right in front of the giant windows facing the ocean, one could happily sit there forever on a dark and stormy day by the fire watching the wildlife and the ocean waves right outside the wall of windows or if you visit in summer there are many, many wonderful, comfortable outdoor summer day sitting locations. You will not be sorry to choose Dolphin Bay Cottage, it is indeed bit of Paradise. Diane and David"
