  • Excellent Vacation Home

    "I cannot say enough about what a wonderful vacation home this lovely Lands End property proved to be! Five close friends and I enjoyed a "ladies getaway" week here for a special birthday celebration and we all agreed that we couldn't have chosen a better venue. The house itself was lovely - large and spacious, perfectly appointed and fully furnished with no detail left unattended to. From the lush linens in the bedrooms and bathrooms to the fully stocked kitchen, we wanted for nothing. The beautiful deck provided total privacy along with a spectacular waterfront view to enjoy. The location was perfect as well - just a few minutes drive to charming Sidney, a short ferry ride to lovely Salt Spring Island, a brief drive to beautiful Buschart Gardens and only a half hour from all that lovely Victoria has to offer. We enjoyed great shopping, wonderful dining and more activities than we could even begin to fit into a single week! Our great dilemma was that there was so much to see and do in the area and yet the home was so pleasant and relaxing that we didn't want to leave. Our solution is that we all vowed to return again for another weeks vacation next year! Thanks so much, Selwyn, for making our experience so pleasant and seamless - we look forward to planning our next visit with you in 2016"

  • Beautiful, relaxing Garden Hideaway

    "We had a wonderful stay in the home away from home in Colwood. We loved the beautiful garden! The set-up was ideal for us meeting our friends - we could make our own breakfast in the really well equipped kitchen (we had brought our own knives, but never needed to use them!) and even cooked a few evenings. But there were enough really wonderful restaurants in Victoria and the area around Colwood that we just wanted to try them all out. We slept like babies and the fresh air coming from the nearby coast was just marvelous! Thank you so much for the great stay - we hope to come again!"

  • Great secluded hidewaway

    "My family and I spent a week at this cottage and highly recommend this one for small families as the property is quite expansive. Lots to do here, volleyball , horseshoes, teatherball, kids playground, badminton, etc...we spent a lot of time mountain biking around the grounds it is that big ! The real star of the show is the hot tub on the deck. It was how we started and ended our activity laden days and is great rain or shine while taking in the beautiful view. If you are looking to unplug with deer at your doorstep, quiet nights and the smell of sea air this is the place!"

  • Nice home base for beautiful Tofino and the Pacific Rim Park

    "My extended family of 4 adults and 17, 18, and 21 year olds stayed here for 6 days. The house was clean and well equipped, and very comfortable for 6 people. My nephew slept in the living room. The downstairs bedroom and bathroom are quite nice and spacious. We loved the hot tub, and there were beautiful old growth trees surrounding the house that made for a magical setting. The short walk down to the edge of the mud flats could be better maintained, the benches at the fire pit are old and wobbly, and the waterfront was overgrown. (With a little more care, it would be a beautiful place to sit and have coffee.). The house is located a few minutes from Tofino and from the Pacific Rim park, it was very convenient to both. Only a 5 to 10 minute walk to beautiful Chesterman Beach was a plus! Overall a nice place to enjoy a piece of paradise!"
