“Excellent 5 stars! ”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed a week in one of their cottages. Cleanest accommodations we have ever stayed in and my husband travels for work and has stayed in a whole lot of places for over 15 years! Karen and Bruce were welcoming, friendly, & informative about the area. Even had printed out information on restaurants and things to do. Great value as well! 2 thumbs up!

Stayed June 2014, travelled with family

The effusive welcome govern to us by Karen on arrival was just what we needed after a long journey . The accommodation is welcoming too, lovely and clean and with many kitchen facilities, such as stove, microwave, kettle and toaster and plenty of pots and pans. Other equipment includes a flat-screen TV with HDMI input so you can play your iPad through it, although with so many users on site the broadband is not wide enough to stream or download. The bed is comfortable and in the back room away from potential noise from the road. The rooms are serviced daily and fresh towels and toiletries provided.
Karen and Bruce keep the site well cared for and are an excellent resource being verity knowledgeable about the area.

I wish were could have spent a longer time. With the rustic beach being across the street. We could have spent hours watching marine life and waves. A nice place to relax.We would recommend to all our friends. Rooms great and we received a lovely welcome. It was exactly as advertised.

Karen, the owner, was warm and welcoming. The cottage was very comfortable and clean. I had a wonderful nights' sleep in the bed and woke up feeling very relaxed. It was also really quiet which, I'm sure, helped me sleep so well. I've already booked another stay there and am looking forward to it!

I knew before I left Vancouver that the accommodation would be fabulous. Karen (owner) bent over backwards to take care of every detail. She was so kind, friendly and helpful. The room was super clean and had everything we needed. Even the bed in our room was brand new. We took a provided bucket of firewood and blanket for a romantic time just across the street at the beach. We work hard and wanted a place that was quiet and we could relax but was close enough to town. It was close enough to even walk. I would without hesitation stay here again. Excellent value and a beautiful time. I hope they will keep a room for me for when I come back this year!!!

The Owner was so sweet..She showed us to our cute little room and it was directly across from the ocean. The sea walk was beautiful !! The room was cozy and there were a small bowl of goodies on the table waiting for us when we arrived. Loved it and will definitely stay there again.

We stayed here mainly as we were going on a bear watching trip on Campbell River. Karen, who checked us in, is lovely and full of enthusiasm and knowledge about what to see in the local area. It made us wish we were staying longer than two nights. The accomodation is mainly for RVs but we stayed in one of the cottages. It was homely, clean and contained all of the things we needed to self-cater.
