  • Tranquil Outdoor Space

    "I rented this lovely basement suite from Martyn and Marilyn for the months of May and June, when I was in a state of transition. They were such a friendly couple and were so accommodating about all of the comings and goings of various family members! After discoverig that my daughter and her son are vegans, Marilyn even brought vegan chili and cookies for us to enjoy! With the pond and two waterfalls, as well as the easy access to the trail just behind the property, the outdoor space was truly a place to relax and unwind in! To top it off, they even let us host a family celebration! We created many memories there that we will cherish forever! Thank you Martyn & Marilyn!"

  • Wonderful family reunion in a very special place

    "We were seeking a vacation home that would accommodate a blended family of 10 people,aged 15-82, including two guests who were coming all the way from Australia. Kim's home and property exceeded our expectations on all accounts. Romantic yet practical, fully equipped yet radiating a whimsical and joyful charm, we appreciated both the openness and secluded spaces of Kim's elegant country home.Kim has ensured that one's every need has been anticipated- from the gorgeous decor and furnishings to the incomparable comfort and views from the verandah, where we enjoyed an entire week of glorious sunsets. The dock became our gathering place during the afternoons for swims, family catch-ups,and canoeing. Lifelong precious memories have been created by our marvellous week at the Shawnigan Lake House. When I arrived home and discovered that I had inadvertently left behind a piece of jewellry of great sentimental value, Kim personally launched a search for it, and returned it to me the very next day. As a veteran of the hospitality industry, I am so grateful for this level of stellar guest service. Bravo Kim.....we are elated after our week at the lake. A bientot!"

  • Absolutely Wonderfull!

    "We were luck enough to spend three weeks here this summer and the experience was magical. The main cabin was just perfect for us, the kitchen was to die for and the whole atmosphere was one of total relaxation. From the welcoming feel of the place, the amenities provided, the incredible scenery, it was superb! The day cabin came in very handy for your children and their families when they came to visit and the dock was great for entertaining and parking our boat. The caretaker Pat, was wonderful at looking after our needs and making sure all was in order and Ron and Linda were wonderful to deal with. I would not hesitate going back! Thank you for a lovely time!"

  • Great place for families with loads of activities for the kids.

    "A well appointed condo. It was perfect for a family of 4. I think 6 might be tight. We had the two parents in a bedroom and the kids in the main living room (one on sofa bed and other on a cot). The condo was clean and very up to date. Having the large patio area was great and added to the living space. Being on the ground floor is key. The complex had loads for the kids to do... indoor pool, tennis, golf, ping pong, volleyball, soccer, beach with slide, etc. We had a boat which was a bonus. However within hours of arriving our kids were offered a ski on another families boat. The community of people ar very friendly. There were lots of kids around to play with (young and old). The adults often meet for appies and drinks and we were invited. They even do a mini boot camp some mornings. So if you like a place filled with lots to do and friendly people around this is your place. Russ was very easy to deal with. We even left a very precious ring and he managed to track it down and keep it safe for us at his home."
