Cute and cozy !

  • 4 of 5

We stayed close to a month, and loved lots about this little place. It was very clean with all the amenities. It had beautiful walking trails, and a beach nearby were we walked our dog on a regular bases. Close by was a taco place by the water, and a pizza shop, which were very good. We had lost power one night, which my my wrong doing, and Linda responded so quickly to resolve the situation. On our last night before we left Linda surprised us with a bottle of wine!! Thanks again Linda

Owner's Response: Please note this guest does not list any specific complaints. Following is the message Helen which sent to me when she left. "Hi Linda. I overshot the area to where I needed to be (Qualicum) so I came and went. No disrespect and your place was totally great. Thanks!"

Great for the 2 of us + our little dog

  • 5 of 5

It was a very good central place for us to stay and explore the local area (Quallicum beach,Parksville,Coombs and a day trip to Tofino. The unit is very clean and has everything you need and is a great place to relax sitting in the garden area reading a book or just relaxing. Highly recommend for a couple , excellent value for money spent. Hosts are very nice people.

Thank you Linda

Paul & Sandy
