Our second visit as lovely as our first

  • 5 of 5

This spotless suite is definitely a little gem. It has gorgeous views either sitting inside in the cozy living space or sitting on the oceanfront patio. On this visit we saw both humpback whales and killer whales cruise by so close we felt we could reach out and touch them; what an amazing treat. Sherry is a wonderful host providing everything you could ever want to make your stay ideal. It had been 2 years since our prior visit and we hope not to leave it so long before we come back again.

Do Not Stay Anywhere But Here!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know why any couple or small family would stay anywhere but the Suite at April Point. This is one of the nicest, most beautiful VRBOs we have every stayed in. Light, bright, right on the water, private, well equipped. Quadra is a small island so you can be everywhere is a short amount of time. We kayaked and hiked and just enjoyed sitting on the small deck watching the resident eagles, seals and otters. Sherry is a really nice, nice host(ess) who gives you your privacy but is also available to answer questions. She is so interesting and knows so much about the island and April Point, being that her family built the April Point Resort. It's a nice stroll from the VRBO. We didn't eat there but had a cocktail in the bar and also rented a paddle boat there. Had great fish & chips from the place right as you get off the ferry from Campbell River. We will recommend Suite at April Point to anyone we know going to Quadra. Truly special. Thanks Dawn and Sherry!

Owner's Response: These great guests are the kind you wish were your friends! Please come again. The fish and chip place is called Coveside Seafood Eatery and, I agree, is the BEST! New this year to Quadra.

Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous!

The minute you walk in the door you will be mesmerized! The suite itself is beautifully decorated , fully stocked and spotless but the view is what hypnotizes you. During our stay we saw orcas, humpbacks, dolphins ,seals and a family of bald eagles. The cruise ships coming thru were also fun to see. I really never wanted to leave the suite because you don't need too , all the best views are right there. The deck was gorgeous and very private. Sherry will greet you with a big smile and warm welcome and will be glad to help you with anything you need. She is a lovely lady and so genuine and friendly, we'll miss our little chats. Hopefully we will be back again to share this piece of paradise. Thank you for everything!
