My husband and I built Sandwood Cottage in 2001. We have always loved the area, and when the opportunity came up we jumped on it. We have spent many happy days there, and we are hoping that others might enjoy it as much as we do.

Clean, cozy and private!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable cottage with all the amenities. Close enough to Campbell River, Comox or Courtenay, yet wonderfully private and relaxing. Would definitely book again!

Amazing cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time! The cabin was clean, cozy and had everything we needed. I especially appreciated the fully stocked kitchen, everything you would need or want to cook.

A beautiful private property (fully fenced so the kids couldn't escape), such pleasant owners, but best of all was the great location, we loved being so close to the beach. We will be back for sure!

Beach holiday

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is located a three minute walk away from a beautiful beach. The cottage itself is very clean with a well equipped kitchen . The yard is very private and quiet. It is perfect for a family vacation or a couples retreat at any time of the year as there is plenty to do in the surrounding neibourhood. Would suit 2 to 5 people.
