Recent Nanoose Bay reviews

  • A wonderful home away from home

    "The owners are friendly, accommodating and welcoming. The house is well outfitted and pristine. It is a wonderful and quiet community with all the comforts of a beautiful home. We stayed for two full months and would certainly stay again!"

  • Waterfront cottage Nanoose Bay

    "We stayed here for a week in August. The cottage is exactly as pictured. It is huge, and the views are stunning of the ocean, offshore islands and mountains in the distance. We were very comfortable, and used the recently renovated kitchen and BBQ to eat most of our meals in. We found it to be very clean and well maintained. The layout would be perfect for multiple couples or families with children and lots of room to spread out, both indoors and out. The local grocery store in Nanoose is only about a 10 minute drive. The Marina restaurant has closed, but lots available in Parksville 10-15 minute drive away. We enjoyed exploring a number of the local parks, beaches and trails with our dog, and unwinding. There were some neat markets and galleries in the area as well. We would definitely come back, and have recommended it to friends. We felt for the size, view and quality it was very good value. It is built on a slope as seen in the pictures, so there are a few stairs from the parking level down to the cottage, and then stairs down to the beach, so might be not suitable for all."

  • Beautiful Cottage in a Stunning Location

    "Just returned from an amazing 4-day getaway with two girlfriends at Garden Beach Cottage! By far one of the nicest cottages I've ever had the pleasure of renting: the location is stunning and right on the beach. I've never seen so many eagles and deer from that close up. The cottage itself is extremely well-maintained, was spotless upon our arrival, and features multiple levels of sprawling decks for eating and lounging. The decor was well chosen and extremely charming (beautiful vintage stove!), and was so well outfitted. Anything you could possibly need is probably in the cupboard. Plastic wrap, wax paper, a couple dozen different kinds of dried herbs, a hair dryer, floatation devices for going in the water - all the little things I usually forget to pack while travelling but that make your stay way more comfortable. Plus the things other cottages tend to skimp on, like towels and robes… there was an abundance of fluffy towels so we never had to worry about doing laundry during our stay (though there was a washer/dryer if we had needed to). The owner obviously takes a lot of pride in this property and in being an amazing host. Thank you for everything, we will definitely be back!"

  • 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"
