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 40 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 Vancouver Island

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!!

Why Husband Tom and I stayed in this wonderful an cosy cabin on the May long weekend 2017

  • 5 of 5

Of course Campbell River is a beautiful place to stay anywhere but having the experience an the expertise of Dave and Colleen made it much more desirable. Collen is a spit fire cool lady who will bend over backwards to help in any way she can. Truly she asks if we needed anything in the Cabin but it was better stocked than a lot of houses. They went the extra mile with things like, Fishermans friends cough drops, face masks for the women, every cleaning supply you could think of, suntan lotions, shampoos and creams and perfumes and on and on and on. The pantry is stocked with all sorts of goodies to assist in the meal making. I was totally amazed that she left a little fruit and veggie platter in the fridge for us. How thoughtful is that!!! The cabin itself was incredibly clean and with flashlights and candles and home knit blankets in every corner you looked. The timber in the house is so natural and calming and the fishing was great. Thanks to Dave who took us out fishing we caught our limit within 5 hour when several boats weren't catching anything (he's a pro...many years in this industry) You can trust these people! Thank you for the wonderful stay. You made visiting with our children and grandchildren really family like. Thanks you for your services. And thank Colleen for the beautiful pictures that you. emailed us!!

The location is excellent. The owners are really helpful if you have questions about the area. Dave is a great fishing guide. Our whole family caught salmon on our trip out with him. Would definitely return to the cabin as well as do another fishing trip.

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Colleen have created the perfect spot for a get away vacation. We have never stayed at a better equipped vrbo. All the necessities are there plus things to make our stay so enjoyable. The welcome bottle of wine was delicious. The cabin is very cosy and the view is beautiful. Suggestions on what to see in and around Campbell River was very helpful. Elk Falls, the marinas, and the 2 museums are all a must see. We would highly recommend staying here!

Super amazing christmas getaway

  • 5 of 5

We sure were taken care of during our stay over Christmas last year, I almost forgot to write a review. Collen was so nice she reminded me of my mother in law. My wife and I had a great time as we were in town for family and they didn't have space. We had a welcome package and they made us feel like we were at home. We didn't want to leave. And David was great too. If it wasn't so cold and I wasn't so chicken I would have gone fishing. I have heard from many he is the best in town for salmon day trips.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at the beautiful Oceanside Cabin. The location was perfect as it had a lovely view of the ocean but was also right off the highway which made it convenient to get to either Campbell River or Comox. The cabin was well stocked and very clean. Colleen and Dave were gracious hosts and ensured that all of our needs were met. It was peaceful and relaxing having coffee in the morning, watching the hummingbirds outside our window as the sun rose over the water. We will definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much April for the lovely review. Dave and I are so glad that you and James enjoyed yourselves at the cabin. We love that you had guests come over for dinner and enjoyed sitting out by the fire pit. I just wish I could have had the sun shining for the whole time you were here. We are glad that you made it home safely and would love it if you came back to stay with us next time you are up this way! Thank you for keeping the cabin tidy, it means a lot to me. You are the best kind of guests, and it was so nice to meet you and hopefully we will meet again. Cheers, Colleen and Dave

Fabulous accommodation! Would definitely come back Again!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed at Colleen & Dave's cabin from October 15th until December 15th. The cabin was so cozy and stocked with everything you might need. My husband went out with Dave on his charter fishing boat and caught a beautiful Spring Salmon!

Even though the weather was a bit chilly, we did some great hiking at Elk Falls which is very close. Dave & Colleen are fabulous hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Must see places in Campbell River are Canadas 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 7am till dusk. They have the best hard ice-cream in town as well as hotdogs, 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, 12-5pm, in December daily from 10 to 5 and from May 18 to September 30, 10-5pm. 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 Harbour Grill" they are pricey but well worth it. My favourite 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 neighbourhood pub on dogwood, called The Royal Coachman is great as well. There is also Moxies 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 favourite choices. We Also have many Sushi Bars and restaurants as well such as Washabi just up dogwood next to quality foods!
