  • Beautiful

    "Russ and Terry, We are so glad we finally decided on your beach house to rent for our vacation. The property is absolutely stunning and the house is spotless and very comfortable. The owners have really thought of everything to make your stay relaxing and a true home away from home. We made most of our meals at the house and we found everything we needed to do so. Things like laundry detergent, dryer sheets, extra paper towels, napkins, firewood, dishwasher soap, shampoo, coffee, umbrellas, board games and movies are just some of the things available at the house. The beds were extremely comfortable and we loved bedding. We woke up feeling rested each morning. We all enjoyed the fire pit near the water and there was plenty of firewood on the property for us. We were also pleased to find a pack and play for the baby to sleep in and even a couple of baby feeding chairs. Barb is the housekeeper and we ended up calling her with a couple questions and she quickly came over and helped us out and even brought us an exersaucer for the baby! She was extremely helpful and friendly and we appreciated that. The owner, Russ, even called to make sure everything was going well and told my husband all about the resident eagles on the property and that we could drive down the road to Fanny Bay to see the sea lions. This property is so private and peaceful. The views are just amazing. We loved waking up to the sound of the Eagles talking. The kids loved the hot tub and the trails around the property. Communication was fantastic. Their daughter, Ashley, handled our booking and she always responded in a timely manner, answered any questions we had and was extremely pleasant to deal with. When we arrived home, we discovered we forgot a few things at the house, so we emailed right away and they immediately offered to mail our things to us! We can't say enough great things about this property and the owners. If you want to feel totally relaxed, enjoy stunning views, wildlife and a spotless and comfortable home then this is the vacation rental for you. We would recommend this home to anyone. Thank you so much."

  • The Patio Suite earns a most definite WOW factor!

    "Fleeing Edmonton to seek an early Spring with blossoms, flowers, trees with leaves, clean fresh air, pleasant walks, the magic of the ocean, and small town amenities, we discovered a gem of a "home away from home" with the Patio Suite! Don and Susan are very attuned to the needs of their guests, providing many kitchen aides and appliances, dinner and table wear, even umbrellas! The luxurious touches such as the bath robes, the thick spa towels, the ever-so-comfortable king sized bed and the wine, flowers and chocolates upon arrival, were most pleasant and appreciated. The generous welcome extended to our family pet was also another reason for us to select this property. The housecleaner is an "Over the Top Professional" with very high standards. Cleaning aids were also available to make daily maintenance easy. Sidney is a friendly, exciting and lovely city to visit, with many side trip possibilities in and around Victoria. It is impossible to get enough beach walks and sight seeing and Susan has narrated many excursions in the "household binder." As we have family living nearby, we were able to invite them to the suite to share lunches, dinners and memorable moments, knowing we would be able to entertain them in a warm, lovely and beautiful atmosphere. We would like to extend our thanks to Don and Susan for facilitating our visit and for providing this perfect sanctuary! It is our pleasure to recommend this property."

  • Family gathering

    "Beautiful property, Paul's attention to detail is very evident in the decorating and cleanliness. The kitchen is fully stocked and lovely to prepare meals in. The home is in a quiet area but is within walking distance of grocery stores etc. We were one of three couples of a family gathering. We had vehicles but also enjoyed some nice walks. We rented the three bedroom main floor and it felt like home. Thanx Paul."
