  • Way Cool House

    "My wife booked this lovely house over the Christmas holidays, we have a daughter going to University of Victoria...we thought it would be a great treat, to all be together over the Christmas holidays...wow, is all I can say! The house is so unique and funky. I loved cooking in the kitchen, which is pretty well all glass,which over looks a grove of Gary Oak trees..it was extremely peaceful. The kitchen is extremely well stocked, with good quality pots and pans.... We played lots of games in the evening, in the very large living room...lots of room to play charades, we also enjoyed tennis matches on on Wi. I am not big on saunas but my wife and daughter had an infared sauna every night before bed and then started there mornings outside in the hot tub We spend lots of days hiking around Thetis lake which was only about 5 min away....wonderful trails if you like hiking. We were only about 15 min to downtown, but seemed like we were so much further as the house was so peaceful We would certainly recommend it"

  • 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."

  • Wow!

    "Our review can be summarized by the first word that escaped our lips as we entered the condo - Wow! This place is truly incredible and makes an already wonderful spot that is Craig Bay and Parksville even better. The condo is extremely spacious and has amazing views from both inside or from either of the patios. The beach access is simple and the condo is conveniently located near the other resorts and near Parksville's amenities (not to mention Rathtrevor Park!!). My young family with two kids under 4 years old had a wonderful time and we certainly hope to stay here again!"

  • Excellent condo and great management

    "My wife and I have stayed at number of times at this remarkable condo and it has become our favourite holiday location. We will be returning again for the month of September for our fourth time. The condo is beautiful and bright and we find it very peaceful. The views from the condo are absolutely spectacular. My daughter and I are floatplane pilots so the non-stop floatplane action in the harbour, which we can view directly from our deck, is delightful to watch along with all of the other watercraft activity. We do not rent a vehicle when we are there and simply walk everywhere. Shopping, grocery store, restaurants, fresh seafood store, parks and beautiful walkways are closely located making this location ideal if you don't have a vehicle. The property manager has been exceptional and we have always received excellent service and care from her both leading up to our rental time and during our stay. She has kindly provided us a bottle of wine on each arrival and the condo has always been in prime condition. If we have had any questions or issues arise while we are on site she has always replied promptly and things were taken care of very quickly. We would not hesitate for a second to recommend both this property and manager."
