  • Great Visit

    "We spent a wonderful two weeks at Hawthorne House and would highly recommend it to anyone. It was great to have a sanctuary to come home to each night after exploring the island- lovely house and yard. The property is well kept in a pleasant, central neighbourhood close to shopping , restaurants, the ferry, and anything you might need. We really enjoyed walking in Bowen Park each evening-what an amazing place only a few blocks away. Our hosts Margaret and Gordon were helpful and prompt with any query. Highly recommended."

  • 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 amazing...world 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 here....it 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."

  • Exceptional Retreat

    "We loved our week in this exceptional condo! The view is beautiful! We enjoyed looking out over the water and watching the waves and the birds. Our friends joined us for the week and we all enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub. This condo is comfortably and tastefully decorated - it is exactly as shown in the pictures. It contains everything you could think of to make your stay more enjoyable. We will definitely recommend this wonderful place to others!"

  • Nice house!

    "This is a beautiful house in a very convenient location. It's clean and have everything we need to spend a few days with our friends. The only complaint would be the missing blinds in the master bedroom on the top floor."
