We are professionals, now semi-retired. Kingsley is an architect, with his wife Terry assisting in management. We rented a condo suite in this resort for a few years and fell in love with it. So, we begged someone to sell us this waterfront unit. It has been totally renovated to suit our taste, including artworks to reflect the waterfront theme. We welcome guests who share our enjoyment of this condo and who would treat it like their own home.

Why TERRY & KINGSLEY LO chose Cowichan Valley H

There are many units in this resort, and only a limited few are on the waterfront row. This unit has been renovated tastefully and furnished with high quality furniture.

What makes this Condo unique

You can choose to be very active on the beach, hiking, swimming, cycling, tennis etc., or just sit back in the leather rocking recliner to watch the view, with a glass of wine or coffee in your hand. Wake up to watch the dramatic sunrise from the front deck, or stroll along the waterfront to watch the romantic moon, listening to the music of the breeze at night.

                                                                We loved our extended weekend stay here. Even though we didn't spend a lot of time at the condo, as we were in Nanaimo for our son's baseball games, we loved every minute.

                                                                The condo was great. It had everything we needed and was clean, tidy and nicely decorated.

                                                                And the view -- for us SK folks who are used to snow at this time of year - it was tremendous.

                                                                Dear Colleen:

                                                                Thank you so much for giving us your great review. We love collecting these 5-Stars from nice guests like you. We look forward to having you back to your "home-away-from-home" soon.



                                                                Just amazing

                                                                Michelle S.Strathroy Ontario

                                                                This was the perfect place for a mini family reunion. The pool was perfect, the little playground for the 2year old to keep busy and entertained. Kayaking, swimming, and the views were breathtaking. I would highly recommend this location, and plan to come back.

                                                                relaxing, quiet and beautiful

                                                                Novy B.

                                                                We only had a couple of days to be away and found this gem "Inn of the Sea" Our view looked out at the pier and gulf Islands in the distance. Perfect! The condo is clean, the property is beautiful and the people very friendly. We took our Kayaks and ventured out in the morning and swam in the pool in the afternoon. There are a couple of Pubs in the area if you don't feel like cooking and the food is good. I look forward to visiting again in the near future, great place for a weekend getaway

                                                                So much more than we expected!!!

                                                                Kerry L.

                                                                What a dream place to stay! The view....word's can't describe.

                                                                Already planning our next trip back. Thank you Terri for all you did for us.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thank you so much. This place is for those who love nature, (and who doesn't), and simultaneously enjoy the comfort of "civilized" convinience such as TV, internet, hot shower and fully equipped kitchen. We choose this place rather than camping in a tent for that reason. Glad you enjoy sharing our fortunate discovery.
