"Great unit and a great location. The other guests did not exaggerate. We loved the forest behind the condo and the proximity of the beach. I also liked all the little extras, such as coffee (including instant), seven kinds of tea and washer/dryer with soap and fabric softner. Nice touches. Best VRBO we have stayed at and would definitely stay here again. Cindy was also great to deal with. Thanks again Cindy."

"We just had a wonderful week at Shady Shores, sunshine every day but one ,the fish ( pink salmon) jumping right in front of the resort , waves of them , my husband got a licence and caught his quoter each day, I loved the view from our two bed unit while I was cooking and eating breakfast dinner,we had fires on the beach in the evening , hot tub and kayaking. Free wi fi .The pub up the road was interesting , this is a great location for visits to Quailcum beach, mount Washington and further north . We enjoyed our chats with Carolyn ,she was most helpful and accommodating and humerus , the units aren't huge , but most suitable , we wouldn't have any qualms staying there in the near future, Carolyn, we never did have that glass of wine , next time ok!
Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple"

"We're just home from an absolutely fabulous holiday on Vancouver Island, staying at the Beach House. From the moment we walked in we were bowled over by the layout, furnishings, kitchen set-up, and - most of all - the view. Between this house and the ocean is a two-level deck, a 10-m shingle path, and a driftwood log. That's it! The swimming at low tide was awesome. The hot tub was delightful. And we never got tired of the view east across the strait to Texada Island and the snow-capped mountains on the mainland behind. Early-morning breakfast on the deck required sunglasses, and the light didn't fade from the sky until after 11 pm. There are lots of things to see and do within a couple of hours drive. We recommend heading north to Denman and Hornby Islands; driving inland to Spider Lake, Coomes, Cathedral Grove, and Port Alberni; going south to Qualicum Beach and Parksville for beach walks and kayaking. Take swimsuits and towels wherever you go! We sampled the wine at 40 Knots Winery, enjoyed scallops from the store in Bowser, and gorged ourselves on local cherries.
We loved it so much, we extended our stay for another day. Thanks, Jim!"
