Cozy & well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Steps to all I love in Duncan this cozy cottage was pleasant to stay in. I go to Canada often and love to cook & walk to the local farmer's market so for me this was perfect. The kitchen left me wanting for nothing: cookware, utensils & pantry items. I was able to cook up a storm while there. Walking distance to down town Duncan, a local fish market & a cute corner store with tons of local fare & for a longer walk I could even get to the bigger shops which for me was great! Beautiful street too!

Perfect HQ for our trip

  • 5 of 5

The cottage worked out very well and really is close to town! Morning walks for coffee (shoutout to the Fishbowl Cafe!) through quiet neighbourhoods and beautiful gardens. Cottage is cozy and tidy with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. Kitchen is very well outfitted. Private back deck looks out on the lovely garden. Our host Felicity was very welcoming, though we did not see her often as we were out on day trips the entire stay. Would book here again, very well located. Have a good summer, Felicity! A&P

Comfortable cottage for two, quiet location with easy access to shops, restaurants and recreation

  • 5 of 5

Friendly, welcoming hostess offered us a clean, comfortable cottage. Kitchen had every utensil needed despite the small size. Private deck at the back offered a nice place to enjoy the sun. Lots of information about local attractions provided by hostess . Easy access to the Cowichan Valley trail and a short walk to downtown Duncan. Enjoyed a day trip to Saltspring Island. A great place for a couple to stay and explore the surrounding area.
