About paul ciavarro

I'm a single hard working man who originally purchased the cottage for my personal use up until March 2015 when it became a vacation rental.

paul ciavarro purchased this cottage in 2014

Why paul ciavarro chose Irvines Landing

This property was purchased because of its unique location and the peace and privacy that it has and it is across the street from the lake also very close to ocean and boat launches.

What makes this cottage unique

I new as soon as I set foot on this property this was the one for me it has everything I wanted and more , guests think so as well.

Lovely little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at Paul's Cottage. Was looking for a nice peaceful getaway from Vancouver with my husband and 11 month old daughter, and it was a perfect fit. The cottage had everything we needed plus, and was very clean and comfortable. Tassimo coffee a nice bonus! We used the BBQ and ate all our meals outside, watching the deer family nibbling the grass about 10 feet away. Saw the stars at night through the skylight when up late with the little one! Went swimming in nearby Katherine Lake which was lovely, a great place to take the fam on a nice day. Had delish fish and chips from Laverne's Grill. Hope to get back up to Garden Bay and Paul's again sometime.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing stay at Pauls cottage for my birthday weekend. It was just two of us that stayed for the weekend and it was more than enough space. Such cute interior and backyard, lovely sunroom in washroom with succulents. Multiple places to relax inside. Right across from Hotel lake. We will be back!

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had an enjoyable time. It was very quiet and peaceful. The neighbors were all quite friendly, whenever they saw us out for a walk. The cabin was quite cozy when we got the stove fired up on the chilly December days It was well stocked with all the items that we needed.

Good location and comfortable

  • 3 of 5

The good bits:

- Lots of room

- A nicely equipped kitchen

- Clean

- Nice space outside with trees for privacy

- Close by the lake, although not at the lake

The not so good bits:

- There are live infrared cameras outside (covering both front and back yards) and it is not clear if you are being taped, although this is likely and simply not what you want as a cottage guest, particularly as you are not told there are cameras. Don't know if there are any cameras elsewhere that we just did not see...

- Rough around the edges here and there, e.g. the hot water tank in the bay window, gappy patio door, but this is just little stuff

- The place needs a BBQ

Coming back? Maybe when the cameras come down.

Owner's Response: I really appreciate this review I am new to this business and this really helps to make thing right. In regards to the security cameras these 2 cameras witch are now gone where for the garage because of a motor cycle and car collector car my bad should have removed earlier now the car is removed and the motor cycle is secure.The hot water tank is were it is because of space issues the gap in the door has been dealt with.Guest has been given one free night for any inconvenience if he wants to book Paul's Cottage in the future.Again thank you for your reviews they really help!
