Perfect Ladies getaway

  • 5 of 5

Us ladies usually try to meet up every year or two trying different places on the island .Well we do not have to decide anymore where we are going as we have found the perfect spot.

This colorful and unique home is perfect.upstairs has 3 nice sized bedrooms each one with comfortable beds and lush bathrobes(2 with great views)and full bathroom with salon products for your use.

Main floor sitting room with books and games ,living room ,tv ,videos and fireplace,big dining room with fireplace,laundry room with another washroom and the well equipped kitchen with fresh bread and large tin of homemade cookies waiting for your arrival as well as eggs,butter,jam,pancake mix and syrup.After breakfast you can go for walk on the beach.

Outdoors has nice loungers and chairs to sit outside with a glass of wine and deluxe hot tub where you can sit in evening and watch the cruiships go by.

The host Georges was such a nice man who answered all your questions on house and area.

Unfortunately we did not get a chance to meet our baker Rumina but thank you.

We sat outside with our glass of wine trying to think of something they missed.Nothing!

See you next year.

Amazing views, very quiet, private

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place to get away and relax. Very charming property. Enjoyed coffee on the deck, lounging in the hot tub while watching the birds and enjoying the ocean view. The owners are very considerate leaving essentials and some lovely cake to make us feel comfortable. Can't wait to come back! Thank you!

"Taste of Zanzibar" - Erholung pur!

  • 5 of 5

Unsere Kanada-Reise 2015 führte uns nach Campbell River wo wir für einige Tage "Taste of Zanzibar" genießen durften. Das Haus ist perfekt geeigente für einen Familienurlaub. Natur pur. Ruhige Nachbarschaft. Kurze Wege in die Stadt und in die Wildnis. Und die Zimmer im Haus sind sauber und sehr liebevoll eingerichtet. Georges & Rumina haben eine herzliche, offene Art und sind sehr bemüht, den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu machen. Vielen Dank nochmals an dieser Stelle - wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können "Taste of Zanzibar" wärmstens empfehlen! Fam. R. aus Stuttgart

Don't look at any other place if going to Campbell River area

  • 5 of 5

Been going to Taste of Zanzibar since 2009. Every trip each year has been nothing more than perfect. The house, hosts, privacy and scenery wonderful. Try the place once and you will never go back to any other rental. The only thing bad thing is on the day you leave and you have to place your keys in that little secret hole, and you realize you have to leave (back to Regina). Catherine & Michael

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home while visiting family in Campbell River.We loved the privacy of the property and the view is just spectacular.There's nothing like sitting in the hottub and looking out at the ocean during the day or up at the stars at night.The homes décor is so colorful and energizing and the attention to detail is bar none.Thank-you so much to Georges and Rumina for their hospitality and thoughtfulness.We will definitely be back!!

Oasis in Campbell River

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely charming, unique, beautifully furnished, and very well stocked. I appreciated how private and quiet the property is. The only noises were welcome… crashing waves and bird song. Despite very cold weather, I enjoyed my coffee or chai on the deck each AM, with the heaters turned on, and watched the hummingbird that visited the feeder just feet away from me. I could not ask for better hosts. Georges and Rumina are wonderful and their attention to detail is remarkable. I would love to return to Taste of Zanzibar at any time of the year.
