Sit and enjoy the complimentary bottle of wine as you watch all the action on the water and watch the cruise ships go to and from Alaska through the inside of discovery passage. Its an awesome sight. One of my favorite things to do is walk the reef when the tide is out, you can go a long ways out and the sea life is incredible. You can see, sea lions sun bathing on the rocks right in front of you and eagles eating crabs and whatever else they can get there claws into. You will see so many star fish in every different color, it is truly amazing, and don't forget the octopus as well. Its like you are in a different world so I really recommend doing that, and its right out in front of the cabin.. We have many Hiking trails or walk the sea walk into town it is beautiful right along the water. Our kitchen is fully loaded, we have every kind of spice, mayo, mustard, ketchup as well as laundry soap, bounce etc and if not just ask..

About Dave and Colleen Jones

My Husband Dave and I Have lived in Campbell River for over 40 yrs. We originally came from the mainland but moved to Campbell River to open a Charter Fishing Company since my husband has fished all his life. So we made a go of it and it has been highly successful. It is called Fastwater Charters Ltd. so if you are also interested in catching the big one, our business is Family owned and operated for over 45 years and we would be more then happy to take you out to catch the big one. Our boats are covered and heated with a washroom on board. All you have to do is ask us and we would be more then happy to help you out!

Dave and Colleen Jones purchased this cabin in 1980

Why Dave and Colleen Jones chose Campbell River

Well Dave and I have been together since I was 18 and he was 27. Today he is 69 and I am a very young 60. Lol! We fell in love with the property and bought it in about 1980. Dave built the cabin in about 2010, it was to be his "man Cave!" So we let it sit and admired it for a few years and then decided to try renting it out. He was a little worried at first as a lot of blood, sweat and tears went into it, as he did do the building himself. It took him a few years but it was finally finished and he did a fabulous job! We love Vancouver Island, Campbell River and would never live anywhere else. Our view is spectacular of the ocean and the mountains and we just can't get enough of the wild life. Many times you will see the deer come right in the yard and try and eat my plants which they usually succeed in doing, or Mama raccoon and her babies are always hanging out you can usually spot them during the evening! One of my favorite things to do is watch the eagles as there is a nest right across the road and they are always flying around with the crows chasing after them. It is not unusual to see them sitting up in the tree eating there fresh catch of salmon or cod and many other treats. We have the best sunrises here so I am an early bird as I love to watch and take video's of them. They are so different daily especially on the water, its like a different painting every single day. You will see tons of Eagles with that distinct sound, sea lions, porpoises shagpokes and even whales going North to Alaska. You will usually always see the Blue Heron that is perched on the rock right at the water and he will sit there for hours until the eagles come and take over. We have also seen turkey vultures which I had never seen before. The would sit there with there wings out and I often wondered why they did that and found out the reason is because they are drying themselves which I found very interesting. I think that you will love the property as much as we so please come join us

What makes this cabin unique

You can't get enough of the beautiful ocean views, sunrises and all the wildlife! What a great place to live!!

Amazing Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This, without doubt, is as well equipped and luxurious a property that I have ever experienced for a short break. Dave and Colleen have taken time to make sure that there is enough you could wish for provided for your comfort, including most welcome provisions including eggs, bread, milk and wine. If I ever return to the area, this will be top of my list of places to stay

Great owners

  • 4 of 5

The owners, Dave & Colleen, are great, along with Camela and Lucy, their dogs! The place is on their property and back a little ways from the highway, but you can still slightly hear the cars. We had done a search on Google Earth before going, so knew that it wasn't directly on the water.

Colleen has a WONDERFUL assortment of toiletries! She is very generous in keeping the cabin stocked.

The woodwork and decorations are beautiful! Little treasures by local artists were tucked in various places. The stories that went along with them were good.

The only items I would have liked were a comfy recliner in the living room, a light directly over the sink, and a blender.

I loved the shower head, and the sheets were so cozy!

All in all we enjoyed our visit.

Owner's Response: SHeryl and Jeff! IT was so nice to meet you both and glad that you enjoyed yourselves. NIne days goes by pretty fast, I wish the weather was a bit better for you but you did have some great days, to bad you never opened the curtains to see the beautiful sunrises but now that we are friends on f/b you can see them there as well as the Eagles which I took tons of photos and the seal that suns all day on the rock, also took a video of it just scroll Down a ways and you will see. ALso the blue herons, which are so beautiful. I wish you would have called me about the blender as I would have run over and showed you where it was, it is a hand blender but is brand new in the box in the cupboard. As for the recliner, sorry we didn't have one for you but the white chair and couch are very comfy. So we are glad we had the chance to meet and will stay in touch, it was our pleasure having you stay with us! Colleen and Dave, Lucy and Camila

Oceanside Cabin is amazing over and over again.

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could say something about this place to keep people away so I could reserve it any time I wanted, but that is absolutely not the case. Dave and Colleen have created a fantastic vacation destination here. They have thought of absolutely EVERYTHING to make the stay as comfortable as possible. The cabin has amazing morning sunrise view, great views of the water and its super clean and comfortable inside. Colleen knows about every cool place to go, things to see and do, and great suggestions for everything. Dave has added some nice touches on the walls including a monster salmon caught Tyee-style, and a couple of homemade salmon/steelhead rods hanging on the walls. If you go fishing, make sure to book Dave- he's a very friendly and hardworking captain who will do whatever he can to get you into fish. The cabin is about 10-15mins from downtown Campbell River so you feel like you're not smack in the middle of all that activity but still close enough to go in/out easily. Dave & Colleen are such nice people.. We will definitely be back, this place is awesome.

The cabin is perfect and the Arctic Fox makes a great second room.

  • 3 of 5

Colleen and David were wonderful hosts. The kitchen is well stocked and Colleen had snacks and a bottle of wine waiting for us. We watched two eagles while having breakfast on the perfect deck. The only drawback is the noise from the traffic on coast road in front of the cabin.

Owner's Response: Hello Lindsey and family! Thank you so much for writing a review, we truly appreciate it. I was so pleased to come in and see how nice and clean the cabin was, you have know idea how much I appreciate it. You made my day and I really mean that! Dave and I are so glad that you decided to go fishing and that it was nice and calm so the little guy really enjoyed himself and caught such a nice fish. So glad that you caught 7 salmon, two chinook and 5 pinks! That was awesome and I loved how excited the kids were. They were awesome and we really enjoyed having you and hope that if you decide to come back you will come and stay with us again. Thanks and I will send you some of the photos I promised!

Must see places in Campbell River are Canada's first Saltwater fishing pier. It is open 24 hrs a day. It has built-in rod holders, cleaning tables, picnic tables and benches, It also has a concession which is open from 7 am till dusk. They have the best hard ice-cream in town as well as hot dogs, fish and chips etc. They are open from May to October and supplies rods and tackle rentals as well as licenses. Free fishing and rods for kids under 16. Wheelchair accessible and onsite public washrooms and R.V. Parking. Fabulous setting for wildlife viewing! Oh and kids if it wiggles and has a tail you will get a free famous ice-cream cone! THIS IS AN AMAZING SITE, NOT TO BE MISSED! ELK FALLS SUSPENSION BRIDGE! This has just been opened and the sights are truly breathtaking.

Another great adventure is Quinsam Nature Trail and Elk Falls Provincial Park. The trail takes 2 kilometers one way or 45 minutes round trip and is easy. The trail is a gorgeous walk through the low lands of the Quinsam River through huge Douglas Fir trees with Cedar Trees, some are close to a 1000 yrs old. The trail follows spawning channels and all the old maple trees make a gorgeous canopy. I have complete directions if you choose to take a walk through this beautiful nature trail. Another famous area is Ripple Rock (Seymour Narrows) It was the most dangerous stretch of water on the inside passage of Vancouver Island. Between 1850 and 1953 more then 100 ships struck the rocks and sank. In 1953 the BC government decided to blast Ripple Rock apart, It turned out to be the largest peacetime non-nuclear explosion in the world. Walk the Ripple Rock trail up to the summit. At the end of the trail you will overlook Seymour Narrows where you can see Quadra Island, the mainland and a view of the ships passing by and if your timing is right you will see the Cruise Ships go by. Seymour Narrows is less then a kilometer wide and you are high up so the view is beautiful.

If you are into Golfing, Storey Creek Golf Club is just a 3 minute drive from the cabin or a beautiful walk. You will always see Eagles soaring, deer wandering all over, owls and an occasional black Bear! Storey Creek has been voted the 3rd best public course in B.C.

LOVE SKIING!!! Mount Washington is the place to go and only 30 minutes away. You can ski, snowboard, snowshoe, hike the beautiful trails. Mount Washington is the gateway to Strathcona park it provides boardwalk access to many lakes, and trails, it is the perfect place for families looking for the outdoor adventure. Loads of Mountain biking trails as well!

Campbell Rivers regional human history museum ranks with the biggest and the best across Canada. We are open year round, from October 1 to May 17, the Museum is open Tuesday to Sunday, 12-5 pm, in December daily from 10 to 5 and from May 18 to September 30, 10-5 pm. You must try Dicks Fish and Chips, the best in town and they are right across the Fishing Pier! If you are looking for steaks and seafood the best in town is "The Harbor Grill" they are pricey but well worth it. My favorite is the Seafood (crab, scallops and prawns) in a creamy sauce with angel hair pasta! Fabulous! Or Peppercorn sauce for your steaks, out of this world! The neighborhood pub on dogwood, called The Royal Coachman is great as well. There is also Moxie's bar and grill, they have the best Spinach Salad and then on the water is The Riptide Bar and restaurant, they have many items on there menu as well but I love there home made Pizza! These are just a few of my favorite choices. We Also have many Sushi Bars and restaurants as well such as Wasabi just up dogwood next to quality foods! AS YOU KNOW THIS IS A NON SMOKING CABIN!! IF THERE IS SMOKING INSIDE YOU WILL BE CHARGED MORE THEN THE $500. DAMAGE DEPOSIT. I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW MUCH THAT WOULD BE AS WE WOULD NEED A PROFESIONAL COME IN AND SEE HOW MUCH IT WOULD COST TO WASH ALL THE WALLS AND HOW LONG IT WOULD TALKE TO GET THE SMELL OUT OF THE WOOD, ETC. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THAT!

So come and stay with us in beautiful Campbell river, walk the reef when the tide is out and its like you are in a different world. There are sea lions sunning on the rocks, lots of Eagles and starfish of every color. So don't forget your camera and where some good runners so you don't slip on the rocks. Or if you don't feel like walking the reef, Stories beach is approx. a 5 min walk and its all nice sand or just sit on the deck and watch the action on the water, sunbath in the comfy lawn chairs. Your hear to relax and enjoy so anything you need just ask. Also enjoy the complimentary bottle of wine. If you are into golfing, the golf course is walking distance from the cabin or a 2 minute drive, so go shoot some golf balls and have a little R&R, or if you are into going out and catching, "The Big One" go fishing with Fastwater Charters Ltd.
