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 6 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 and mountain views and the huge trees! Of course we love having our family nearby and that is why we chose this area.
What makes this House unique
We live in a small village with a city 15 minutes drive away.

Lovely view out the window of Cow Bay.
No streetlights to keep you awake here, just the night sky and shimmering waters of Cow Bay. this is an industrial working area so you can see log booms being sorted and moved around as well as sail boats, fishermen, kayakers and so many birds! Very quiet and the suite itself is well set up and cosy. Lots of walking nearby.
Thanks for the lovely review Gail. It's always great to see a guest enjoying everything about Cowichan Bay and the surrounding area. I really enjoyed my chats with you, in particular, finding out how you assess the birds and damage to the farmers land. You're very knowledgeable and friendly. Rick and I would welcome you back anytime. You left the place tidy and were quiet and appreciative.
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.
Thanks for the great review. Theresa and Bill were delightful guests! They were interesting to chat with. The suite was left clean and tidy. I would welcome them back anytime.
Get location and great hosts
Karen and Rick made me feel like family. The suite was perfect and clean and convenient. The view is amazing. I will definitely be staying there again
We loved having you stay here and would love to see both of you again.
