This house is fantastic! Four of us stayed for four nights and could not have been happier with 1 - the location, 2- the cleanliness, 3 - the view. A lot of care has been taken to meet the needs of anyone. If the house didn't have it, you don't need it.

I would stay again anytime.

Super Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to this rental and we loved it both times. Jennifer has done a lot of upgrades since our last stay and it makes the place more enjoyable. Well stocked etc, relaxing sitting on the deck watching the boats, seaplanes etc. We will be back.

Magical seaside oasis!

  • 5 of 5

Fog Ducker Hollow is a magical seaside oasis!

The cottage is unassuming from the roadside, but takes your breath away upon entry. It is literally built over the water in beautiful Cowichan Bay and the views from both bedrooms and the living room are absolutely spectacular. The decor and ambiance of the cottage is truly charming with delightful artistic touches to be discovered in every room and outdoor space.

We ate almost all our meals on the deck over the water - it really is the very best table in the village! The well stocked kitchen made meal preparation quick and easy and the nearby fish and chip restaurant (fabulous halibut and salmon) does take out too. There is a wonderful bakery and a cheese shop a short walk away too.

We very much enjoyed our evenings sitting around the gas firepit on the deck, glass of wine in hand and the little boat lights twinkling nearby. Life on the marina was surprisingly quiet and peaceful despite the activity of the Kingfishers, seals and crabs going about their day, and the comings and goings of the boaters and kayakers in the Bay.

We enjoyed a day wandering around the village and Marina and another fabulous day taking in a local winery tour - driver, tastings and lunch all included. We also tried stand up paddle boarding which was a lot of fun. Kayak rentals and tours are available steps away too.

The views (and photos) from the deck are amazing - the early morning light dawning over the hills of Salt Spring and shining onto the Marina was spectacular and the golden glow of the evening sun on the water and boats was equally wonderful to witness.

I highly recommend this delightful wee cottage in beautiful Cowichan Bay if you want a charming and unique experience in a lovely little seaside village.

I could not imagine a better place to celebrate my milestone birthday and I treasure all my memories of our stay in Fog Ducker Hollow.

Simply magical!

Wonderful cottage with a great view!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks in this lovely cottage. It has all the amenities, and more; more roomy inside than one would know from seeing it from the street. Close to all the shops in Cowichan Bay village, and 10 minutes or so from Duncan and other grocery markets.

The kitchen has great appliances, and more cooking tools than the average rental. Firepit on the deck, and perfect view of the harbour. Little touches like bath robes for guests were appreciated. Manager was helpful and accommodating. Would come back!
