“A highly recomendable BnB”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Dee and Warren run a B&B with very high standards. We had the good fortune to stay at their place for a few days and enjoyed it so much that we went back for two more days later in our travels on Vancouver Island.

The house and rooms are kept in immacculate condition and on top of that Dee and Warren are very hospitable people. The breakfasts were incredibly nice to be seen and enjoyed.

We wish both Dee and Warren continued success with their BnB

Dee and I had the pleasure of not one but two visits with Peter & Ruth from Luxembourg...our conversations were many and varied and flowed easily like old friends. Thank you so much for your kind comments. It was our pleasure to have you here...we look forward to you coming our way again!!

Warren and Dee go far beyond what a B&B normally offers. Besides the clean, comfortable bedrooms with their well appointed adjoining bathrooms, the home made bread and jams to go with the fresh fruit and gourmet breakfasts and the superb location by the ocean they provide amenities such as towels and folding chairs for the beach, bathrobes and bottled water for the road, to name but a few of the extras. A stay at Willow Guest House is more than an experience you will not soon forget but you will look forward to your next visit to this piece of paradise.

This is a private home on a quiet cul-de-sac off the alternate highway to Courtenay and Comox BC from Nanaimo that the owners reconditioned and repurposed as a B&B. It is at most 15 minutes from Courtenay or Comox, about an hour to Qualicum Beach, so is well situated for exploring many quiet areas of the Vancouver Island coastline. The owners are thoughtful, welcoming people who more or less cede the house to guests except when breakfast is being served. They like guests and are readily available for advice or direction, yet not intrusive otherwise. The rooms are well appointed, clean, comfortable, and very quiet at night as there is no traffic or animals. Guests are provided with robes, a shared TV in the living room and a small shared refrigerator stocked with water and drinks in the dining area. There is perpetual tea/coffee available with milk/soy milk which is always appreciated and not always available elsewhere. Fruit or candies were also available. A peaceful deck affords a bit of ocean view. Breakfast was elaborate and beautifully presented, and the hosts were happy to accommodate a slightly early meal plan to accommodate our schedule.

Room Tip: Unless you need the daybed, the smaller room has some ocean view and is farther from the kitchen.

Thanks Warren and Dee for a great stay. We appreciated the great comfortable place and the amazing food. My mom loved spending time with you as well. Great view, and really felt like it was a home away from home

Doug, Hayley & Doris were here at Willow Guest House for two days to visit their son Coulton who is working in the Comox Valley area for the summer. It was a pleasure having this family meet and be together in our home and we look forward to their return.

We stayed with Warren and Dee for a couple of days - and we felt like home (well, except with better food, view etc.).

From the moment we entered when they welcomed us with a smile and fresh made chocolate chip cookies ...They are truly the kindest hosts ...helped us plan our trip around here and were always willing to help whatever we needed. Really enjoyed our conversations and they care so much about their guests' well being. Dee cooks up an AMAZING AND healthy breakfast (from *scratch*) and tailors to your timing and dietary preferences: fresh berries parfait, zucchini jam, fresh orange juice, fresh eggs in tortilla shells etc.

Their home is beautiful and they clearly have put in a lot of love and effort into it - including Dee's mixed art and shells decorations that give the house a "beachy" feel

Just a few minutes from their lovely home, Warren showed us a "hidden" beach ... which didn't have anyone and seems like your own private pebble beach!

I could go on... but seriously, if you're ever coming to the Comox Valley/ Vancouver Island area, we HIGHLY recommend staying with Dee and Warren if you get the chance...as they only have two rooms and get busy in the summer, get your booking in early!

Thank you again, Dee and Warren for your wonderful hospitality. We look forward to coming back soon!

Your kind words in the various social mediums are very appreciated and we will continue to do our best to make our guests comfortable and at home with Dee & I at Willow Guest House B&B.

Pauline, you are to kind! Thank you for taking the time to write a review on TripAdvisor for us. Our children have often commented that not all of our guests have to become friends. Our response is simply "Why not?" After six days with Pauline, she left as a friend with the hope that we stay in touch and would see her again. Merci, mon ami bon voyage!

This was the second time for us to stay at the Willow Guest House, since we were so pleased with our first visit! This time we stayed in the spacious Nautical room overlooking Dee and Warren's beautiful garden. The other, equally beautiful room, has an ocean view. The ambiance and amenities equal any 5-star hotel. But a 5-star hotel doesn't have the warmth of Dee and Warren nor the delicious breakfast! I am looking forward to our next visit!

Thank you Carol...it was so nice to have you and Rich back with us yet again. We were able to provide some space in our freezer for Rich's catch and although I couldn't convince him to leave the Halibut behind we very much enjoyed their company once again...Dee and I appreciate that you took the time to review us and thank you for such high marks and great compliments. All the best
