Recent The Islands reviews

  • Four nights was not long enough

    "In the Bluff is far more than just a place to stay, it's an amazing experience on so many levels. Not only did we enjoy soaking up the mesmerizing views from the deck and exploring the secluded property, but sightings of deer, eagles, many other birds, and even a seal swimming in Active Pass, were magical moments. Although I have never really been drawn to log houses, the way Lawrence and Janusz have turned this one into a home is simply amazing. Every room, every fixture, every artful piece and playful detail make you feel like you are in a designer home that is somehow also packed with history, warmth and personality. You won't want to leave! I would especially recommend it for people visiting this part of the world for the first time, as a super-charged BC Gulf Islands experience. It's also a great base for hiking and exploring the island on foot. Best of all, Lawrence and Janusz are fantastic hosts and treat you like friends."

  • You won't regret choosing this place!

    "We had been to Pender before but decided to try a different cottage this time. It was absolutely wonderful. Huge windows with ocean views in every room, clean well kept cottage, and best of all a hot tub even closer to the water than the cottage. We really enjoyed our stay and plan to be back again."

  • Pristine condo, excellent location, and impeccable service

    "I cannot say enough good things about our experience. From start to finish, we were over the moon impressed with every aspect of our stay. Once you book the condo, you will receive numerous emails about the property, the area, recommendations, and check-in processes. That's a really nice touch because having booked so many places over VRBO/HomeAway, I'm sometimes nervous when I don't immediately hear from the booking service. Arrival information is clear and you're given numerous contacts to insure a smooth check-in. Lawrence was amazing and took the time to get us familiar with the area, recommended restaurants, and great attractions. The condo itself is sparkly clean (I'm almost a germophobe, so this is always a big deal for me). The layout is fantastic, giving everyone lots of space. As a corner unit, the windows are tall and the light is fantastic. Having stayed in so many vacation homes before, I was shocked at how well-stocked this home was. The kitchen is better equipped than my kitchen at home! The parking garage is safe and large. The condo is more beautiful than the pictures can show. As for location, it cannot be beat. Restaurants galore at your doorstep; literally, since there is a delicious restaurant at the base of the building. All of the restaurants, stores, coffee shops, ice cream places, Chinatown, the Harbor, farmers markets -- everything is walking distance. We always look for walking proximity to amenities and this condo more than fits the bill. I do not hesitate to recommend this property and this team! I only wish this team ran the booking for every property I want to book. Thank you for a wonderful stay!"

  • Comfy, clean house. Roberts Bay is beautiful

    "We really enjoyed the stay and loved Roberts Bay. The bird wildlife is amazing and we always had a seal to accompany us when we were kayaking and paddle boarding. The house was very comfy, clean and had lots of deck space to escape to. The owner and family were great to deal with and allowed us to use a couple of their kayaks which the kids had lots of fun on."
