Comfortable, great view, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 6 year old daughter stayed at Dean and Tracy's and were very satisfied. As shown in pictures, great ocean view from kitchen, living room and deck and we loved the hot tub. Clean, great location - grocery store a few minutes away along with restaurants, parks, ocean, etc.

Mellow home base with easy access to all the neighboring towns, ferries, airport, etc.

Dean was very helpful and available.

We will definitely be back and hope to make it out on a boat trip with Dean and Tracy next round!

Cozy home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location for exploring the surrounding area. The cottage was charming, tastefully decorated and very clean. The kitchen was well supplied with all the cookware and utensils we might have needed. Loved the claw foot tub in the bathroom, and appreciated the abundance of shelving as well as extra towels. We spent much time on the front deck, with its table for two and attractive flowering planters, not to mention the hot tub, which made for perfect star gazing. We never did use the TV (too much else to do!) but definitely appreciated the sound bar for streaming music. The only thing I would point out is that the main house is directly behind the cottage, which is something to be aware of if you're looking for something on its own property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The main residence is not behind the vacation rental. It is a studio that which I work from from time to time and supplies the bicycles and kayaks when renters need them.

Cozy, comfy with tasteful decor

  • 5 of 5

Dean (or someone very close to him) is a master craftsman with style. This little home has been completely renovated, yet many of the original elements such as door handles, stove fittings and cabinet doors have been tastefully incorporated into the new decor. Very classy! Views through the many large windows are wonderful; trees, gardens and harbor views. After a somber sleep, we met wonderfully warm sunrises and hummingbirds each morning while making coffee. The house is situated almost perfectly between Nanaimo and Chemainus, our two favorite places to visit in the area. Shopping within five minutes and ample cookware. We had a great little mini-vacation here.
