  • Luxury condo with Breathtaking View on the water

    "Our jaws dropped when we walked in. It is a spectacular condo, well located in lovely, fun Tofino. I'll start by saying that I wanted to extend my stay so that I could just sit on the patio deck and watch all the activity of the fog moving in or lifting, the seaplanes and boats coming and going... The view from the upstairs loft bedroom is so fabulous to wake up to. We didn't use it but there is a big BBQ on the deck and pleany of seating for a larger group. We walked everywhere in town. The condo is close to many fine restaurants ( and Tofino has lots). There is an underground car park so that moving our luggage was no problem. There were 2 bathrooms, which was great for us-- 2 women traveling. I slept on the couch in the living room and my friend got the loft bedroom. No complaints about the couch! I would stay here again in a heartbeat! We enjoyed the bear-watching boat excursion, a walk in the nearby Rainforest, watching the surfers at a nearby beach at high tide and fine dining at Spotted Bear, Schooner's and the Wolf in the Fog. We lunched a couple times at Shelter and enjoyed Happy there. Skip the Wick."

  • 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 Wonderful "Winter" in Sidney By The Sea

    "Wanting to escape a prairie winter, we leased this beautiful condo from January 1 to March 31, 2015. What a wonderful place to call home for three months! First of all, the building is located directly on the sea with the most incredible views of the gulf islands, the most glorious sunrises, and the ever-changing skies of Vancouver Island. All of this is observed from the living room window, bedroom windows, and balcony of a condo that is very clean, tastefully decorated, and meticulously equipped to ensure all the conveniences of home. The condo complex is located in the quaint little town of Sidney, north of Victoria, attached to the Pier Hotel. Just outside the door, one finds a highly walkable community with all amenities mere footsteps away. We loved this condo, its stunning views, its proximity to Victoria, and its spacious floor plan. The owner was the most accommodating landlord, only an email or a phone call away, and was always quick to respond to queries or assist with details. He was a most welcoming chap and did his utmost to ensure that we enjoyed our time in his condo. Winter 2015 will be remembered for a winter without snow, daily walks along the sea (just out the door!), breathtaking views from our windows, and a luxurious home away from home. This home is designed to impress and will. You cannot go wrong with the Residences at the Pier. Thanks Hugh!"

  • Wonderful vacation home by the sea

    "Our vacation started with a warm and friendly welcome from the owners who ensured we had everything we needed. The house is ideally located right on the shoreline only 10 minutes walk from Sidney's main street. Our kids had the beach to themselves and rock pooled and built driftwood forts on the shore. We loved having access to the kayaks and saw sea birds and grey harbour seals on our little trips out to sea. It was a great base for adventuring out to local sights and attractions. The house was roomy and comfortable, and had everything we needed at hand. We had a wonderful holiday and would love to return. Thanks Joyce and Bill for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!"
