Not what we expected.

  • 3 of 5

Linda was lovely and welcoming and the unit was clean.

However the accommodations were not terribly inviting.

We would have enjoyed more comfortable seating indoors other than the two chairs provided. As well there were no oven cooking pans such as cookie sheet or pie plate. It was challenging to cook in the unit as a result. As well, the bed was very hard.

I don't believe we would return to this airbnb.

Owner's Response: I'm glad that you found me friendly and welcoming and were met with a clean and tidy place. I'm not sure what was meant by the accomodations were "not terribly inviting" as you were not specific. The pictures of the suite are accurate - two recliners and two dining room chairs as well as an outside sitting area. I'm sorry you found cooking in the unit challenging. There is a full set of pots and pans as well as a frying pan. My welcome note states that if i can be of any help give me a shout. I would have been pleased to supply you with a cookie sheet, pie plate or any other item that would have been needed. Sincerely. Linda

Quiet, well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

The bedroom Is almost underground so it stays cool, quiet and dark. It's like a sleep chamber, awesome. We actually were able to make ourselves dinner one night because it had a stove. Really nice tool to have. The front entrance has a couple of chairs outside that make early sunrises a real treat. Overall very serene.

This was such a great unit! Centrally located with loads of beautiful hiking trails right there.

  • 5 of 5

I would absolutely recommend this little unit to any travelers . For a one bedroom unit it is very spacious and has all the amenities you could want. Not only is it especially clean it has a full kitchen with all the necessities and a lovely walk out into the garden. The location is ideal if you are wanting to explore the east side of the island, very close to Qualicum Beach and Parksville , and within an hours drive of both Nanaimo and Courtney . Linda provides lots of information regarding the local area. I highly recommend taking in one of the many hiking trails that begin just a few minutes walk from the house. Linda is a very gracious and accommodating hostess. I will not hesitate to book this property again the next time I'm in the area!

Sweet Suite!!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome little suite for two and our kitty too!

Clean, easy to find, ocean views, short walk to the beach and stores.

A great place to stay mid island while our house was being renovated.
