Away from everything without being far from anything

  • 5 of 5

What a hidden gem! A fabulous home on a gorgeous piece of property that resulted in us having a quiet and relaxed stay on our Island holiday. The perfect accommodation for a couple with two dogs. The entire property is fenced so a lot of room for the dogs to run around. The owners were incredibly friendly and very welcoming. It was hard to leave the swinging chair - it was the perfect place to read. We would certainly stay here again. Thanks again for everything!

Peaceful, Private, Charming

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in this charming river-front cottage, dogs welcome. The cottage is tucked away, so be sure you know how to get there, especially after dark! We would definitely recommend this place to friends. It is perfect for a couple with pets, but I think it would be a tight fit for a family with kids. The proprietors are friendly and helpful, and met us when we arrived. The place is as good as it looks in the photos, and was generously equipped with everything we need. We cooked almost all of our meals, and appreciated having an excellent kitchen. There's easy access to the towns of Duncan and Cowichan Bay, and yet there is the privacy of a country property. Good access to hiking and a variety of outdoor activities.

Relaxing, Peaceful, Private yet close to everything!

Great stay! We stayed here for a week in Oct/15. It was a really nice little get away where we could have our little dogs with us! The owners are super nice, and attentive to your needs if you have any, at the same time give you total privacy. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you so much!
