Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Dear Ron and Matilda Thank you for the absolutely wonderful stay in your cottage! Thank you so much for all your attention to detail. It was so much more than what we expected! We thoroughly enjoyed our week exploring the Sunshine Coast.The kids LOVED hunting for crabs and other sea life, and building sand castles while the tide was out. Thank you, Matilda, for the Reiki session as well.It was a beautiful experience. We are all sad to be leaving the sun and sand today. Hope to see you again! Will recommend to friends and family

Relaxing and calm

  • 5 of 5

Your warm and welcoming manner was a breath of fresh air! Nothing was too much trouble and you even came to help late at night. This place is so relaxing and calm. The beautiful views we awoke to were splendid! We explored the beach, spent lovely time on the decks at the water, we ate at lovely restaurants in Sechelt, we walked along the Davis Bay promenade with our dog, we relaxed in the private hot tub under the stars and had a cosy evening watching the magnificent sunset and then one of the many DVD's provided. We will never forget our stay, we will certainly be back, and we will recommend your place to friends and family! Namaste

Glad that you experienced it too! The hot tub under the stars is quite a hit! We are happy that the decks on the beach were special. Spending time there with the resident eagles, king fishers, herons and seals is amazing! The restaurants played along in providing a wonderful time for you, we are grateful to them for adding to the overall experience of visiting the Sunshine Coast. Hope to see you again!

Beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

.Hi Guys Thank you for everything! We had a wonderful stay at your beautiful cottage and found it very difficult to leave. What a special place it is! We feel very fortunate to have discovered it on the internet and also to have had the additional pleasure of meeting both of you. The cottage is wonderful, the view stunning and the entire environment is restful and offers so much but the two of you add something very special to the stay of your guests. You made us feel very welcome and comfortable as we enjoyed the privilege of sharing your property at Davis Bay. We thoroughly enjoyed our short bits of time visiting with you and getting to know a bit more about both of you. We all came away from our trip satisfied with our quiet time, relaxation, much laughter, and time to rejuvenate in an amazingly beautiful location. We are very interested in coming back again next year at the same time and hope that we can make that work. Let us know when you think we would need to book our time to ensure getting that period once again fondly, Mary, Justin and kids

Countless bays, inlets, coves, streams, creeks that are part of the many wondrous marine parks. Lifestyle is ultra-relaxed, folks quaintly alternative yet warm and friendly.
