  • Wonderful Hosts, Great Rental

    "Exceptional hosts Sandy and Tony are warm, welcoming, and couldn't be more helpful. They are easy to communicate with and very prompt in responding to inquiries. The property description is accurate -- if somewhat understated. The unit is exceptionally clean and well maintained. It is also appointed very well. We stayed for 5 days and lacked nothing! We enjoyed having a full kitchen with everything we needed. The bed (and even the hide-a-bed) are comfortable and have nice quality linens. The towels and provided toiletries are nice. The ensuite laundry was very helpful (we were on Vancouver Island for a couple of weeks and needed to do laundry half way through the trip). The location is very convenient, in a nice Sidney neighborhood, and has a lovely yard. The only reason we didn't give this rental 5 stars is its location under the landing/take-off pattern of the airport. While we were staying there the morning disruption started about 6 and went well into the evening. It helps to close the windows -- but doesn't eliminate the noise. That said we plan on and look forward to staying with Sandy and Tony again."

  • A true escape!

    "Sarah/Jenny, My family of 6 had a wonderful visit in your beautiful condo rental! Positives: 1. Location, location, location! 2. Easy access to the Wild Pacific Trail. 3. Spacious unit was clean, and well-equipped with fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, plenty of towels and linens. 4. Amazing views from both the upper and lower floors. 5. Two large decks (upper/lower) overlooking big beach with plenty of comfy adirondack chairs and tables! 6. Lots of good books to browse through. 7. Super-fast security deposit refund. 8. Lots of beach towels were provided. Thanks! 9. Simple check-in/out procedures. Minor negatives/recommended improvements: 1. The propane gas grill on the deck is old and very small (only a single burner). 2. No beach chairs were provided (so we donated a pair for the next guests)! 3. Since the daytime temperatures were relatively high, we found that we had to keep the deck doors and windows open for sufficient air flow. This allowed a several mosquitos to enter the unit, which woke us up several times at night. I don't know how this could be prevented without adding screens, but screens would obstruct the beautiful views! 4. This is a very special place; an amazingly serene setting, unlike any other we have encountered. Our last night, however, was a little annoying as we had a very early morning departure, and we were kept awake late by a music festival at a nearby campground. A quick letter to the local governance regarding noise pollution might be worthwhile. Thank you again for making your vacation home available to us! We would definitely return!"

  • Home base while working in Alert Bay

    "My colleague and I stayed at this beautiful house on four occasions while working in Alert Bay over the last couple of months. It's clean, cosy, and well appointed. And it has a tremendous view out over the ocean. I'd recommend it to anyone."
