About Karen Nelson

Rick and I both grew up in Calgary. We've moved around Alberta and BC, but this home is perfect for settling in. We've lived at this address for 5 years. We love the feel of this area and the endless beauty that surrounds us.

Why Karen Nelson chose Cowichan Bay

It's all about the gorgeous ocean view and the huge trees! Of course we love having our family nearby and that is why we chose this area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rick and I really enjoyed having both of you here. Great sense of humor, clean and quiet. We will always welcome you back!

Great location, lovely view of the water and mountains.

Heron View is a wonderful spot to stay, we felt right at home.

Everything was new, comfortable and quiet. Even had heated towels ready for our shower in the mornings!

Karen is a lovely lady, very friendly and helpful.

Would definitely stay again when we are on the Island.
