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

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
