  • PEACE ON EARTH!

    "The Boathouse is a place unto itself. It is a tranquil, peaceful and quaint. There is no other place where I would be willing to walk outside to get to the bathhouse. Oddly, here it just seems natural. The cottage and the bathhouse were squeaky clean. The chairs in the cottage's library were fantastically comfortable and when combined with the view of the bay made for the perfect place to linger over morning coffee. One of my fondest memories of The Boathouse will always be sipping wine while sitting in rocking chairs on the dock. I would caution those who want to experience this great place to pack lightly. The steps down to the cottage are many, but the thoughtful landings make it less of a problem. Harvey and Jean were wonderful hosts. Thank you, Harvey, for suggesting the Brentwood Pub, for dinner. We ended up eating there three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it each night. Thank you, Jean, for telling Curt about Cathedral Grove on Highway #4. We stopped there on our way back to Nanaimo from Ucluelet and loved it. What a beautiful place! It was a peaceful and special place - just like The Boathouse."

  • A beyond beautiful place to stay for 2 weeks!

    "Just got home from this amazing place and 2 week vacation! I was visiting Victoria while defending my thesis at UVIC and it was the perfect place to stay. Beds were SUPER comfy, kitchen beautiful, bathrooms and overall house layout was comfy, and the area up at bear mountain is so beautiful. 20 min max from downtown victoria so very close! I would stay here again if i ever had to go to victoria again! Thanks again for a great trip!"

  • FREEDOM

    "We recently stayed at the Mermaid Suite in Victoria for six weeks for a long deserved rest. The condo is very well located in Victoria. One could manage if you did not have a car, however it is always a bonus to have one. The trendy Victoria restaurants and shopping are very near by not to mention the inner harbour with the stunning backdrop of the well known Empress Hotel and Parliament Buildings. We enjoyed watching the activity on the water every day, very relaxing and soothing by itself with the benefit of bird life, and kayakers. If you enjoy walking, as we do there are many great options right from the building that are nice to do. It was nice to be in Victoria over the Holiday Season, it is amazing to see the amount of bloom still happening. Colleen and Don are very organized and attentive hosts from start to finish. They are genuinely concerned to make your stay the very best possible. They have thought of everything in the condo, as well they have a very informative guest information booklet that is a great way to aquaint yourself with the condo and Victoria. Especially good for people unfamiliar with the area. Their Victoria representative, Francis is very kind, punctual and accommodating to all of your needs. It was truly a great experience, and feel that is good value and great location!"

  • A slice of heaven

    "We have rented more than two dozen homes in several countries. Over time we have identified characteristics that make a trip especially memorable: jaw-dropping views and sunsets; convenience to airports, shopping, sightseeing, and excellent restaurants; outstanding architecture; top-of-the-line furnishings and appointments in every room; fully integrated electronics where everything works seamlessly; manicured grounds and gardens; abundant wildlife; a night sky ablaze with stars; owners who exude warmth and hospitality and service; even access to excellent medical care. We research extensively seeking several of these variables in one location. But never have we found them all at the same time, and in the same place – until we visited Thalassa Point. I could write paragraphs to amplify these qualities. I could note that a vacation destination where our children and friends eagerly travel thousands of miles to visit us must have some exceptional ambiance. Suffice it to say that wherever else our travels may take us, the one place on earth we will return to, every single year, is this extraordinary home."
