“Fabulous B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

Fabulous place to stay with very friendly hosts, lovely home and gardens, most comfortable bed I've ever been in, delicious breakfast and Moses the cat too.

Do yourself a favour and stay here instead of a characterless hotel chain!

The apartment has everything you need except for the groceries. It's centrally located, there are plenty of attractions within driving distance. The rates are excellent for a family vacation rental. There is even a hot tub though we didn't have time to use it this time. We stayed in the self contained vacation sweet.

A nice enough place, except that a few mechanical details were overlooked
Positives: a lovely gardenat the back, reasonable rates, convenient location
Negatives:
The place is a bit hard to find, we had to stop and ask directions
A small room with only a sliding door for ventilation (which had no screen)
Not much privacy as all rooms open onto a common area

Hello and thank you for your comments. Not sure what "mechanicals" required work on. Regarding the door screens, we've just ordered some for all the rooms, so thanks for the input on that.

My husband and I stayed at the Blue Haven for one night at the end of a road trip through Vancouver Island this past May. We stayed in the Magnolia room which led outside to an awesome hot tub and beautiful serene backyard, perfect for our last stop as we reflected on our island adventure. Mike and Jean were the most gracious hosts and their home was so peaceful. Jean made a lovely breakfast and both were so knowledgeable about the island, we had almost wished we stayed there prior to our trip up to Tofino and Ucluelet cause they had so many traveller's tips and hints about that area as well as Parksville! We hope to stay at their Bed and Breakfast in the near future and would recommend it to anyone making a stop in Parksville!

Hi there. Thank you so much for your kind review. Mike and myself thoroughly enjoy meeting people and sharing our home with them. We love to tell people of the many beautiful places Vancouver Island has to offer. We are so privileged to live in such a beautiful part of the world.

I certainly hope you will be back here to stay and get acquainted with some other parts of the area such as Denman Island, Newcastle Island to name but a few. Perhaps you can even persuade Mike to take you out on our boat, although I don' think you'd have to twist his arm too much!!!

Take care.
Kindest Regards,
Mike & Jean

we stayed for 3 nights. we always felt welcome on our trip to BC but the hospitality was superb even by BC standards. the room was very good and the lounge area was very comfortable. Our hosts provided all sorts of good ideas about what to do and where to go.

A beautiful room, very well equipped. A big plus was the hot tub, right outside the bedroom! The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom spotless. We were welcomed by the owner Jean and made to feel at home. Good eating places nearby. Breakefast set us up for the day and Mike was there to chat and give us some tips on our sightseeing tour as we headed west. We would recommend this B&B to all.
