  • Wonderful cabin experience

    "Clean and comfortable cabin with all the amenities including a barbecue! Comfortable bed, clean kitchen. Dock is gorgeous. You can sit and relax plus the water was really nice - I don't swim in lakes often but this was a nice lake, not too cold and seemed clean! Went for a nice hike on a path in the woods right across the street. Absolutely stunning surroundings. Had the chance to meet the landlord and she was very friendly and very informative and helpful. Great experience. Will definitely book again.."

  • A spacious , comfortable place to stay in a lovely area

    "We enjoyed a wonderful relaxing month at Claire and Martin's vacation rental. It was really clean, quiet and comfortable and had everything our family needed and more. There is plenty of room for four or five people and our son's dog was very happy there too, especially when let loose to run on the Deep Bay beach near low tide. From the VRBO description, we were not expecting luxury but it was spacious, very well equipped and had some very nice features. A super comfortable king bed. A huge, private deck which was great for having meals outside and relaxing. Although there is no range, there is a large portable convection oven that worked very well. We did appreciate having a washing machine and clothes line. Unlike a previous reviewer, we did not feel that AC was necessary when the weather was hot: we used the fans and shut the blinds during the day when we were outside and opened up most blinds at night to let cool breezes come in. At the end of the spit an uncrowded sandy beach was great for safe swimming. At the other end next to the Deep Bay RV park was a good place for launching kayaks. Seal Bay and Nymph Falls parks, near Comox, have lovely trails through beautiful forest so we visited them several times. The Deep Bay marina is very close and we enjoyed evening strolls there to watch for wildlife and see fishing boats returning near sunset. We saw seals, herons, kingfishers and even river otters. In early September, after some cooling rain, salmon were returning to spawn and Martin very kindly knocked on our door to tell us that salmon were in the creek at the bottom of the property! The owners' genuine hospitality was a special bonus."

  • A Week in Bowser

    "Property was modern, clean, spacious and exactly as described - no complaints. When we arrived, we were met by a neighbour who acts as an on-site caretaker. We had one, very minor issue during our stay which was resolved immediately by the caretaker. The house is about a one minute walk to the beach. While the beach is rocky, we had great fun exploring at low tide when sandy spots were exposed. We saw many crabs, starfish and fish. We used the house as a base to explore Qualicum, Parksville, Deep Bay and Coombs. We visited swimming holes at Little Qualicum Falls (where we saw cray fish) and at Top Bridge Park. We mountain biked in Cumberland and Mount Washington Bike Park. All in all a great time for me and my kids."

  • Sproat lake awesomeness!

    "another great stay up at this lake, easily the warmest and cleanest lake you'll ever find. Great house to stay at, with an awesome yard and a great deck for hanging out on, it's got everything you'd ever want without being pretentious or stuffy. It's comfy, just the way you want to be at the lake, yet it's still a huge piece of property that gives you lots of privacy and the best beach around ( no weeds and the kids can walk all the way to the dock ladder, so you don't have to be a helicopter parent all day). Great times, highly recommended"
