Even better than expected

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults and children aged 2 and 4 had a wonderful

7 days in this lovely home. It is completely furnished with everything

one could want for a perfect vacation and get together.

The beds were very comfortable we enjoyed having everyone

Together in the family room by the kitchen.

The location was perfect being right on the water and having beautiful


It is close to Rathtrevor beach which is quite a tidal phenomenon.

Also close to good food shopping in Parksville and Goats on a Roof

market in Coombs. Many easy day trips can be taken from this location.

We all loved it.

Thanks so much Graeme and Ava.

Perfect Setting for Rest and Reflection

  • 5 of 5

Just after dawn on the first morning when the sea was silvery and still as a mirror, I saw a humpback whale spouting off shore. It rolled sideways in the water and slapped the surface repeatedly with one of its long pale pectoral fins. The slapping and spouting continued for several minutes, rippling and churning the shimmery surface, then the whale dove down and the sea became still again.

During our week-long stay, we saw orcas, a seal (I'm certain it was the same seal that kept coming back, popping up to stare at us expectantly when we shouted hello to it), a sea lion and many eagles. One particularly hot day, we went down to the backyard beach for a swim and saw starfish, anemones and a king crab. We spent several cool evenings in the hot tub listening to the seabirds while the setting sun lit up the sea and sky with orange and gold.

The house was beautifully decorated, well provisioned and clean. The furniture and beds were modern and comfortable, and everything worked as it should.The owners provided many extras in the well-equipped kitchen for the convenience of their guests. There were even birthday candles in one of the drawers, and a rack of herbs and spices.

Our only regret was that we had to leave at the end of the week.

A Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic location for our family vacation, from the walk-on waterfront, and gorgeous views and sunsets, to the open, spacious and well equipped home. Going to sleep each night and waking every morning to the sound of waves breaking on the beach was an absolute pleasure and something we are now sorely missing.

We would highly recommend this property and are definitely looking forward to booking it again for a future vacation.

Fantastic Family Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 3 day Easter weekend at this property and we we loved it! Location right on the water is fantastic, with gorgeous views, peaceful and quiet setting, yet not very far from many attractions in the area. This is a very pleasant residential area, the home is very spacious, clean and updated, and well equipped with just about everything you need, from a large screen tv and blue ray player, to a beautiful kitchen with all the necessary tools for cooking, including a barbecue on the back patio. We made Easter dinner at this house and had a great family get-together. Excellent views form just about every room, and lots of sunlight from the large windows. The kids enjoyed seeing the seals playing in the water, and we viewed eagles on the island offshore using the telescope in the living room. We did our grocery shopping at the nearby Quality Foods, and we even found a ranch that sold locally grown lamb and local seafood within a 10 minute drive.

This was a relaxing vacation, and we would not hesitate to book this home again in the future.

Wonderful Location and Property

  • 5 of 5

We spent a full week here at this property and we were very pleased with the location. We watched animals and boats come and go. We listened to the sea lion slap his tail upon the water all throughout the day. We loved to sit outside at night and listen the waves hit the shoreline. The telescope on a tripod was a feature that we enjoyed using very much!

The house was beautiful and well equipped. There was nothing that we were in need of that wasn't located on site. The spacious living room was great, however, we also enjoyed the sitting room off the kitchen for just sitting and chatting the evenings away.

We would recommend this property to anyone and we will to all our friends who decide to visit Vancouver Island. We never got to see everything we wanted to see, so we will be back.

Thank you Ava and Graeme for opening your home to us! It made our vacation......
