Recent The Islands reviews

  • Super Location...definitely NOT luxury as described

    "Positives : The best thing this listing has going for it is the location and parking. It really couldn't be better if you want to walk the street and see the downtown and have a car. Living room with couch and two comfy chairs are nice although the fireplace is not easy to operate and when it did light there was not full ignition of the gas flame . For this reason we would say it really doesn't work. Listing this as a luxury property is definitely misleading. It appears the owners have not listened to the previous reviews as the same deficits still exist. The bed in the master is an old queen mattress on a king bed frame. The bed is hard and sags and the over size frame makes it difficult to get in and out of as you always have to remember to gauge for the size difference when getting in or out. Pillows are not comfortable, linens are cheap and definitely not luxurious.The mattress cover is extremely stained which we would not have known about but as were were asked to strip the beds ( even though we paid an $85 cleaning fee) before we left we saw the condition of the linens. Yikes , awful. The broom is so old that it is not useable as it's permanently bent over, tea kettle is gross. WORST of all the dishwasher is so loud it cannot be used while anyone is sleeping in either room OR when anyone is in the house. It's really like a train coming down the tracks and you have to yell over it! We could not use it. There are no ceiling fans and when the sun comes out this place is HOT with no air circulation. They do supply a dinky floor fan .....really? The second bedroom is an office with a bed in it, no counters , closet or table, advertised as an accommodation that sleeps four, but really not private enough for two couples as there is only a half bath on the other side of the apartment for the second bedroom. It would be ok for a couple of kids. All in all it seems like what is in the apartment are a mix mash of things just barely good enough for a students use in college and the other items seem to be left over from other tenant's occupancy. We only had 1& 1/2 rolls of toilet paper for our 5 night stay. There is a only a small bistro table and having a meal on it is neither comfortable or roomy enough especially if you were an older person. The amenities make this property just a good choice verses the truly excellent choice it could be with very little effort made ! Beware of really loud seagulls early in the AM !"

  • Wonderful ocean-side home-away-from-home

    "Eagle's Nest was a perfect vacation home for me and my niece, we both LOVED it and highly recommend it. It's clean, well maintained, comfortable and beautifully furnished, with large windows that bring the ocean indoors. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped; the BBQ grill is large and high quality, as are the washer and dryer. Both bedrooms are nice, especially the master, with a highly organized walk-in closet and attached 1/2-bath. If you need a 3rd bedroom, the media room has a sofa bed and a door for privacy. The bathrooms are clean and nice, with a good shower and big tub. The free long-distance internet phones work fine in the media room. This rental is as described and pictured on vrbo - be sure to watch the video. The patio overlooking the ocean is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner, as is the bistro table (for 2) in the sun room. You will undoubtedly find yourself sitting in the sun room, rain or shine, watching the ocean – what a beautiful view. My niece and I easily launched the kayaks from the backyard, and we enjoyed walking along the tidal flat when the tide was out. This rental is easy to get to and is in a very nice, quiet neighborhood. It's ideally situated to: the ferries at Swartz Bay (5 minute drive), Van Isle Marina with its beautiful yachts and wonderful Sea Glass Waterfront Grill (5 minute walk), downtown Sidney (which is both cute and practical; 3 minute drive), and the Victoria International Airport (12 minute drive). It was easy to get to Butchart Gardens and the Cowichan Valley by car, and the bus to Victoria was very convenient. We had initially considered staying on one of the smaller islands (Salt Spring, etc.) but Eagle's Nest has a huge advantage if you want to explore Vancouver Island like we did – you aren't at the mercy of the ferry schedules except for visiting the smaller islands. Adrian, the owner, is considerate, friendly, and available by phone or email. He responded quickly to my inquiries and requests, and made us feel very welcome."

  • Excellent Beach Front Vacation

    "This was an excellent rental. Well appointed, great location in Comox. Close to everything. Great amenities, with plenty of rooms and bathrooms, with 2 full szie showers, great oversized kitchen with plenty to cook fantastic meals, including the grill outdoors. Did not get to enjoy the pool or hot tub (as we went in Oct) but will do so next time we go in the summer! Very responsive owner to questions related to property and then some. Would not hesitate for a minute to stay here again. We are a couple but this property could easily accomodate two couples or a family."
