Giant tide pool: Young and old alike enjoy the experience of a gigantic tide pool that hosts numerous species of marine life. A 21 lb salmon was caught by one lucky guest, by using only a net and bucket. kids love to chase the bull heads, crabs, and the occasional octopus have been spotted in the pool. One of Natures REAL experiences.

clams and Oysters: There are an abundance of oysters and clams on our shoreline. A valid fishing license is required, to legally pick from the shore. Great experience for the kids, to pick their own dinner right from the shore.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a dream....



This place is amazing with a truly breathtaking view. It was well worth the money and I totally recommend this place for a group of people for a great getaway. The hot tub was truly amazing we spent hours in it!!!! Just a tip....STAY FAR AWAY FROM THE ROADHOUSE PUB it was a nightmare with terrible food. We opted for groceries and home cooking after eating a terrible meal there.

Beautiful views, nestled in the trees on Vancouver Island!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 6 days/5 nights with 10 people. Accommodations were very good, enough room for everyone to have their own space. Check in/check out were simple. Carolyn provided local places of interest/things to do which we took advantage of a few of them. Oysters are plentiful and delicious. Tide pools were fun for all especially the kids, very educational. Beach bonfire was great, but it was a search for firewood. There were 3 local Bald Eagles among us while we were there. Hottub was great. We even took out a rowboat on one of the calmer days. Lots of wildlife to enjoy.

The only reason this rating is not 5 star is the kitchen setup - the kitchen itself is rather small for such a large house that sleeps 14 people, and the available cookware is a little old as well as sparse (there are only 2 frying pans). Cooking for 10 people on a daily basis using what was available was a bit challenging at times.

Overall we had a great time!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and suggestions. I will personally attend to the consideration of kitchen ware. The house keepers usually are on top of any necessities, broken or missing items. I only wish you had mentioned something to me when I checked with you to make sure you were enjoying your holiday. I have back ups of everything to ensure that my guests have everything they need and then some. We welcome you back to our little piece of paradise. Warmest regards, Carolyn

property manager was intrusive and unprofessional

  • 2 of 5

left property to get food came back to find her walking around yard. did not concider private space. when checking out gave zero effort to thank us or help us in how clean properly so we would not get charged. ***hot tub was not sanitary*** does not know how to maintain it.

overall uncomfortable with manager but beautful property.

Owner's Response: An orientation of the property, and checking all subsequent amenities, such as hot tub, BBQ, and wood stove are provided at check in. Hot Tub was crystal clear, and notices of requirements to bath with soap are located in the House rules booklet, on a tent card and signed at the Hot tub. These instructions were not followed, as evident, when I went to property to see if all was well. Additional people showed up late at night whom had not paid, obviously a concern to the guest. Any and all information about the Home is provided in the House rule booklet, that obviously was not read. This is not a frat house or party house. May I suggest next time book camp sites.

Multi-Family Vacation - Memorable

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO rental was a precious, hidden jewel that allowed our family to have a memorable vacation. The log home was perfectly set up for a multi-family vacation. We had three families with four children ages 2,3,4,6. The home, location and amenities were as described in the VRBO site. Carolyn answered my questions promptly both through email and personally by phone and was very helpful in planning our family trip. Our damage deposit was returned as stated in her contract on time. Her recommendation for a fishing outing for the boys was an excellent referral and much appreciated. When we arrived both Carolyn and Bev her assistant were very welcoming. With them being close by they were able to assist with any questions we had and provided excellent recommendations for sites to see in the area. The beach truly was a living aquarium for our grandchildren and the adults when the tide was out and then kayaking in the evening was beautiful and peaceful. A highlight for the family was evening bonfires on the beach with bedtime snacks. The hot tub was an added plus or just relaxing on the deck facing the ocean. The log stove inside helped keep everything cozy on chilly evenings. Highly recommend this home and look forward to returning in the future. In planning to rent this home we would suggest visiting the Costco in Comex which is about 1/2 hour away to stock up. When planning take note there are no dry goods on site, but the kitchen is well stocked with dishes and appliances.

Incredible Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Spent the most Amazing weekend at the beautiful log home with friends. The home was very clean, well designed, lovely, fantastic features, cozy .... everything about the home inside and outside was outstanding. To be able to just walk out and have the ocean in front of us was amazing not to mention how incredible it was to sit in the hot tub and listen to the waves. I have traveled all over the world and will rate this place 5 stars as Everything was Perfect!
