Recent Vancouver Island reviews

  • Kidnapped the family and off we went

    "The home was lovely for our family with 5 adult 20 yr olds. We just had an evening of puzzles and games. The house was clean and orderly. Two days of beautiful scenery. One hitch was that the furnace had run out of oil, we called and they had oil on the way. Luckily our son is a gas fitter as it took him about an hour to prime and bleed the lines. We just light the fire with the supplied firewood , cuddled up and enjoyed. The rooms are so spacious and many rooms have a view of something wonderful. We even did our own polar bear swim. Just a wonderful getaway!"

  • Fantastic family vacation

    "We had a wonderful time at the beach house. The house is beautifully and comfortably decorated and well equipped with everything we needed (except a washer and dryer, but we managed just fine without it). The lagoon across the street was very warm and not very deep - perfect for the kids to spend hours snorkelling and discovering the sea creatures. The beach toys were a nice touch. We ate outside every evening and enjoyed the visiting bunnies that hopped through the yard. It was a lovely relaxing vacation. We were pleasantly surprised at how the nice ocean breezes kept the house the perfect temperature. A little slice of heaven. Highly recommend this place."

  • Ideal Setting

    "This home is a gem. It's about 30 minutes from Victoria but you feel like you're much further away. Our first day we saw six boats but about double that many kayakers. For the power boats, we have usually seen that many in about ten minutes at other waterfront locations we've rented. In the week we were there, we only saw one other car on the road in front of the house while we were driving. The house is very well maintained and the kitchen is stocked with many dry food items beyond what you normally find. We brought two kayaks and launched them from the bottom steps. About ten minutes south is a provincial park which made for some great sightseeing from the water. Lots of wildlife in the area, especially deer. There were lots of things to do nearby. We toured Butchart Gardens on a Saturday in August and stayed to enjoy their fireworks show. We also toured a winery and cider maker, went to the Sidney street fair and spent a day in Victoria. This was a hard place to leave. I hope we can return soon."

Vancouver Island Resorts Are Hidden Gems in British Columbia
