Peaceful getaway, in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

3 couples stayed at Oyster shores for 3 days.

Never having stayed in a B an B we found the experience delightful. The home is in a very peaceful, quiet, neighborhood. It was a very quick 2 minute walk down to the beach, beach is rocky but quiet, no one else around except the herons.

Gini our hostess lives on site in her own private residence, but we didn't see her until she arrived at a designated time, and prepared us a delicious breakfast! Perfect eggs Benedict, blueberry pancakes.

Gini offered suggestions as to what might interest us, then left to give us privacy, came back after we left, to clean up after us.

Immaculate, comfortable home, the price to stay was extremely reasonable especially since breakfast was included, and a holiday weekend!

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again,

Awesome property!

  • 4 of 5

Oyster Shores is really well kept and in a beautiful and quiet location. Our family appreicated that it was far enough away from things to miss the bustle but close enough that with a small commute we could do literally anything we wanted, we visited some beaches and water falls, had dinner in town and were able to see the Comox Farmers market. We were visiting our family from Victoria and we decided to go up island for the long weekend - we're super glad we did.

Gini was a lovely host, she's a great cook and made us feel warm and welcome. She went over and above to make sure we were all comfortable in the space. We'll definitely be back when we're in the area again.

Stunning and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Oyster Shores was the best experience any of us have had with a B&B - Gini was hospitable, served lovely breakfasts, and helped us out with various needs throughout our stay. The home is a unique structure, built with wood harvested from the property and decorated with lovely original art and antiques. We enjoyed our privacy on the deck and in the home. Gini keeps the house in immaculate condition.

We went for charming walks throughout Ship's Point and along the ocean. Nights were absolutely silent, except for the occasional sound of wildlife or the rain.

Already thinking of a return visit...

Very clean and quaint B & B

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Oyster Shores for a couple of days on our trip to the Vancouver Island. We've passed through the area before, and wanted to come back and stay this time. The location is about half way between Qualicum Beach and Courtney. It's a very safe, very peaceful and quaint residential neighbourhood. One caveat though: you absolutely need a car to get around.

The house is very charming and super clean. Accommodation is good, furnishings are kind of basic, at least in the room we were in. Guests are allowed to use the common areas which are nicely appointed. There's a gorgeous backyard, deck, and BBQ.

We absolutely loved meeting Gini and the other couple who were staying there at the time. Gini is an amazing woman and a joy to talk to. Getting to know her, made our stay even more enjoyable.

B&B gem

  • 5 of 5

Gini's Oyster Shores B&B is a lovely place to enjoy the beautiful Fanny Bay area. We were treated to delicious breakfasts, clean and comfortable rooms, relaxing patio and garden area, and Gini's friendly hospitality and helpful tips for best places to go. Excellent access to the beach and walking trails. Short drive to visit friends and family and to many of our favorite spots in the Comox -Qualicum valley. .... Such as Locales dining in Courtney, golfing, beach combing, shopping and fishing. Perfect location for us. Gini went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our time at the Oyster Shores such as offering flexible breakfast times, additional towels, bedding, etc, and sharing the many amenities in her bed and breakfast. We will definitely book with Gini next time we are out for some island time.
