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!

Beautiful, Comfortable, and Relaxing...

  • 5 of 5

Great place to relax and recharge. Very clean and comfortable with everything you need in a home. Close to a liquor and convenience store as well as restaurants, pubs, and shops. The dock provides a convenient place to paddle from (we brought our own boards, but the rental shop is just a dock or two over) or to just sit and enjoy the scenery. Wineries are nearby and so is the town of Duncan. Would love to stay again...

Can I Give Six Stars?

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough words to describe how awesome this place is. You can literally see the sunrise from while laying in bed. The second We walked in, the view overtook us! Breathtakingly beautiful! They have every thing under the sun that you need within the home for cooking etc. You don't even need to buy ketchup, butter, jam or other little necessities as the place is kept stocked with leftovers that are a pain ( and costly) to buy. It is within a two minute walk to the stores and bakery and coffee shops and restaurants. Cowichiwan Valley is a charming little town. We saw seals swimming every night while hanging on the dock. The deck bonfire was great on cool nights. Jennifer was so accommodating as she took several calls before we arrived from Michigan and then was there if we needed her during the stay. I've stayed at many places while using VRBO OR Air B and B but this place was the BEST ONE ever!

Beautiful Property and Setting

  • 5 of 5

We brought my parents up for a long weekend, and the space was very comfortable for our party of four. We enjoyed sitting on the deck, watching boats and kayaks go in and out of the bay, as well as our daily walks to the bakery and other shops "in town". A short drive away, we found excellent coffee and locally-sourced meats, produce, and pasta, and we enjoyed cooking meals on the grill or in the well-outfitted kitchen. The space was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the decor charming. We all agreed we'd love to return!

The High Point of Our Canadian Adventure

  • 5 of 5

I honestly can't sing the praises highly enough of this cottage - we had such an amazing stay here. We saw otters, whales and harbour seals in the bay, we caught crabs from the jetty, we slept well, we ate well and would go back in a shot. The neighbours and locals were friendly and the house was really really well serviced. Thank you for looking after us so well, it was just a magical end to our holiday in Canada.
