  • A great place for a family holiday

    "The cottage is exactly as described, with lots of room for a family of 4 (and could sleep 6 comfortably). Great swimming and canoeing. The lake is warm and pristine. Karen and Rob are wonderful hosts."

  • My piece of paradise

    "My husband and I have been coming here for almost 12 years. We absolutely love the location and the quietness. The view is so beautiful.....I love sitting on the patio and looking over the ocean at any time of day or night. Our unit is large, clean and well stocked with everything we need except the groceries. Some of our highlights over the years have been visiting Coombs market...they have goats on the roof, strolling along Qualicum Beach, just a 1/2 hours drive away...the sandy beach just goes on forever. There is a charming pizza place in Ladysmith that has a great special Tues nights and the farmer's market at the Crow and Gate Pub on Sun is a must see. The Pub also is class British Pub on a country road miles from town. People from Victoria make the drive just to sit in the beautiful outdoor garden...and there are lots of gardens in Victoria to choose from. I could go on and on.....the swimming pool is my favorite place is cantilevered over the cliff and the blue water of the pool combined with the blue of the sky and ocean is quite marvelous. Every morning I walk past the rose garden on my way to a quiet swim to start my day.....heavenly. Be sure to bring some binoculars...have not seen any whales yet, but others have...we just enjoy watching the boats go by while drinking our morning coffee on the patio. Angela looked after us for many years, now we have Patricia and Scott who have been just as great. They are available by text or email and live just down the road. Each unit is individually owned here which gives this place its charm. Make sure you have the owner;s contact information but really, it does not matter since there is always a helpful person to get a newcomer orientated. One more thing. I mentioned that we have been long time renters....and if we were younger or fully retired would buy a unit here in a heartbeat. Over the years, we have seen the property maintained and improved on...and all improvements are better than the original fixtures. There are at least 2 owners who actually live on site. That speaks volumes to the quality of this place....owners live here too. They keep the place running well, the place is quiet and family orientated and it has quality and charm. Hope you love it as much as we do."

  • Loved this property!

    "The deck and those stunning views were hard to leave. Lovely home, comfy beds, cozy blankets and reading nooks. Lots of space and the kitchen is well appointed. Amanda was so accommodating as we had a few special requests. We highly recommend this private piece of heaven. G and L Brophy"

  • Awesome home, great location ... perfect in every way!

    "Family of five travelling from Seattle with the family dog found this property to be the perfect holiday get-a-way. The photos and property description are accurate. Owner (Karin) was responsive and helpful, reservations were easy and straight-forward. She met us at check-in and briefed us on the home and the area. The home is warm and inviting, well-appointed and will sleep many. The kitchen has high-end appliances and the BBQ grill on the back deck is a plus. This house is on Long Lake, with a small dock. We took our small boat (14-feet, 50 HP) and had a blast tooling around the small lake. As an aside, my 10-year-old and I caught many sizeable Rainbow Trout (2-3 pounds) and they were tasty! Loudon Park, just next door, has an excellent swimming beach and the water is clean and clear. Spent one day tripping up to Coombs, MacMillan Provincial Park and Englishman's River Falls - all within an hour's drive. Also nearby is Piper's Lagoon Park - great hiking; and, of course, Nanaimo's beautiful waterfront and harbor. We came away very pleased. Thank-you, Karin! Your property is awesome!"
