  • Amazing place!

    "We were a family group (6 adults, 4 children and a baby) visiting Canada from the UK and we enjoyed the most wonderful stay on Lake Cowichan. The house is very well equipped and designed with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The lake and scenery are incredible and we spent most of our time swimming in the lake, jumping in off the diving board, going out in the boats provided and watching the wildlife and birds. There are plenty of activities on offer in the surrounding area and shopping and restaurants are not far away. We would love to return one day."

  • I'm always suspicious when a review is too good. It could be written by the owner or agent.

    "But I am not the owner or agent - just an over 60 year old woman with three kids and five grandkids three generations all had the wonderful experience of staying in the Lake House. It's a charming place that is full of character and interesting details. Everything you need is there - from games, to water toys, videos and DVD's, to recliners for those of us that like to nap, comfortable beds, very clean - and all the cooking utensils you could want. As I love to cook and my son is a chef, that is saying a great deal. Lots of nooks and crannies on the properties with chairs to sit and look at the view. A wonderful deck overlooking the lake and a tremendous beach with a dock and a diving board. The water is warm and the beach is sandy. Easy to get to from Port Alberni. So many things to do at the cabin that we rushed our visits to town so we could get back (I was going to say "home again" because it feels like home and corrected myself). Our eclectic family spent four nights there and as soon as we got home, we booked a week next summer. One part of me wants to share this wonderful place with others - hence the review. The other part of me wants to keep it secret so we will always be able to book it. I guess I am taking the high road. Cathy B"

  • Perfect Getaway! Quiet oceanfront that is minutes away from all Nanaimo has to offer!

    "What a wonderful place! My boyfriend and I drove up from Victoria to spend a few days in Nanaimo. This property, on the north side of town, has great ocean views and is so quiet and peaceful that you wouldn't know that you are minutes away from everything in the city. Upon our arrival, Natalia and Victor were nothing but hospitable. They not only gave us recommendations for great restaurants, but also let us try their own smoked trout! Victor told us of many nearby places to visit. We did our best to do as many in the amount of time we had. My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. The downstairs apartment was large, very clean and opened straight onto the back porch. We were often greeted by the baby deer and bunnies. The accommodations were more than we could have asked for. And whatever we did ask for, Natalia and Victor were ready and willing to help. As we were leaving, waiting in the vehicle line to catch our ferry to Vancouver, I realized I had left my phone next to the bed. I called Victor, and Natalia immediately hopped in the car to drive my phone to me so we wouldn't miss out ferry. They saved us so much stress (even though I'm afraid I caused them some)! Victor and Natalia, you were wonderful hosts. I know that if we ever visit Nanaimo again, we will be staying with you. Thanks for a wonderful stay! The Cathedral Grove trees were such a neat experience! Hopefully we can take you up on that fishing offer sometime :)"

  • 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."
