Guestbook comments from the owner

This house had everything we could have asked for and more. Incredible views, privacy, indoor and outdoor ammentities. Everything was provided to make our 8 night stay a vacation we'll remember for years to come. We've been home less than 24 hours and we miss it already. Can't wait to return.

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A very nice home in a quiet and private location. Everything you need is included with the house and then some if you like to cook at home. Plenty of places a short drive away if you want to shop or go out to eat. If you enjoy nature, just sitting on the deck in the back yard will keep you happy. There are several Provincial Parks close by, wineries, and Victoria to visit. We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return.

Beautiful property and location

  • 4 of 5

The house and grounds were lovely. The house had everything you could want for a stay and everything was easy to find. Sitting out on the deck or in the garden was so relaxing. And great for the views and watching eagles, seals and hummingbirds.

My only complaint would be that the bedrooms had no blinds and, although the sunrise was breath-taking, I did not particularly want to be woken at 5.45 am every morning, especially after a late night. And the steps down to the house were a little bit tough when carrying in a suitcase and my exercise!

But would definitely go back.

And the views...absolutely WOW.

Relaxing and Inviting!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time with our two kids resting and getting away from it all! The property was just the right size and with the ocean and wood burning fireplace, we were in heaven! We also got to wake up our first morning to orca's passing by...unbelievable!! The sunrises and sunsets are unmatched and the grounds of this home were perfect!! We LOVED IT!!!

Absolutely Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property & home were perfect. It gave my husband and I a chance to unwind and relax but we were still close to Parksville and Nanaimo. The home had everything we needed and then some. We spent most of our time outside taking in the views. During our short 7 day trip we saw cruise ships, whales, seals, otters, bald eagles, frogs and deer almost everyday right from the property. We can't wait to go back!

Best of Everything

  • 5 of 5

If you want to feel secluded without being secluded this getaway offers the best of both worlds. Private ocean front home tucked away in the trees allows for complete solitude and breathtaking views yet my wife and I could walk to the Fairwinds Golf Course for brunch or wonder through the neighbourhood with the local deer. We loved it.

The home lacked for nothing with a fully equiped kitchen, hot tub, media room, internet but we chose to spend most of our time exploring the rocky beach and snuggling in front of the fire with a glass of wine.

We can't wait for another chance to visit.

Ein unvergesslicher Urlaub...

  • 5 of 5

Ein unvergesslicher Urlaub...

Wir waren im Juli mit insgesamt drei Pärchen für eine Woche in dem Ferienhaus. Von der Straße aus wirkt das Haus eher unscheinbar, aber von der Gartenansicht und von innen ist es einfach nur traumhaft schön.

In der unteren Etage befinden sich Küche, Wohnbereich, Schlaf-, Bade- und Fernsehzimmer. Durch die vielen, großen Fenster hat man einen tollen Ausblick auf den Garten und das Meer.

In der oberen Etage befinden sich zwei weitere Schlafzimmer mit angrenzenden Bädern und ein großer Arbeitsbereich.

Das Haus hat eine gehobene Ausstattung und was uns besonders gut gefallen hat, dass so viel vorhanden war (z.B. Gewürze, Soßen, Handtücher, Küchenrollen, Reinigungsmittel usw.) Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter war freundlich und unkompliziert.

Wir können das Haus bedenkenlos weiterempfehlen und würden es jederzeit wieder buchen.

A memorable holiday,

in July we were at a summer cottage together with 2 other couples. Regarding the house from the street it seemed quite inconsiderable but coming closer into the garden and from within it looked just gorgeous.

In the lower floor you find a kitchen, the residential area, bed and bathroom as well as a TV room.

Looking through the lots of panorama windows you will enjoy stunning views on to the garden and the sea.

There are two additional bedrooms with adjacent bathrooms and a big working area on the upper floor.

The house has an exalted furnishing and what pleased us very much was the huge amount of household supply equipment such as towels and kitchen roll, spicery and sauces, cleaning agent etc.

The contacting of the lessor and further communication was very friendly and uncomplicated

Consequently we can recommend the facility without hesitation and would book it again at any time.
