Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

This was our first time staying in a b&b. Wasn't really sure what to expect. Detlef and Siggy welcomed us into their house as if they were close relatives. They were both available if ever needed and respected our privacy when we were off to our room. Breakfast was fantastic both mornings. Did not need lunch later. Would definitely stay here again. If this is what other b&bs are like, we will be going into the next one with very high expectations.

Stayed: August 2014

My wife and I decided to travel to Vancouver Island in late July and one of our stops was Qualicum Beach. After reading some reviews here on trip advisor I decided on the Charm of Qualicum and I'm glad I did. I totally agree with Larry E in regards to how a B&B should be run. I looked forward to our arrival there even after I spoke with Detlef during me booking our stay. As soon as we arrived until the time we left we felt like we were in our own home. Detlef and his wife Siggy do a masterful job in all aspects. We would definitely go back. Thank you Detlef and Sigrid Weismueller-Ehrhardt for a wonderful stay. Als Sie für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt.

We stayed for only one night in this very welcoming, very clean and comfortable guest home. A delicious hot breakfast was served. The hosts were so warm and gracious and invited us into their home like we were old friends.

We stayed at Charm of Qualicum in May and when my wife had to return end of June she insisted on staying with Siggy & Detlef. Why? Because the hosts have captured the essence of what a superb B&B should be. She came back happy, relaxed and even though I am not much of a traveler I do look forward to a return trip to this welcoming home. If you want value for your money, a relaxing atmosphere and good conversation this is the place to be. We will be back....Racey & Larry ps - she loves the princess room and Tom.

Our business trip turned into a pleasurable experience thanks to our endearing hosts, Siggy and Detlef. From the moment you walked into the door it felt like home but with pampering. We have stayed at many B&Bs in Qualicum and this was by far the most pleasing and relaxing place of all. The owners took us into their inner circle as if we were family yet all the while showing us the respect of guests. The name says it all 'CHARM' of Qualicum. - I have already rebooked for a longer stary. Thank you, Siggy/Detlef/Tom.....L&R

Thank you to Detlef and Siggy for their hospitality and their warmth during our stay from June 16th to 20th.
We were treated to amazing breakfasts each morning, given tips on local restaurants and countryside tours. (complete with maps!)
They even supplied us with beach towels and a beach mat (and water for our little dog Kyro) for our trip over to Tofino and Ucluelet.
The many stories Detlef and Siggy told us were amusing, wonderful and informative.
We felt very at ease and consider them our new friends.
The Charm of Qualicum is the only place to stay in the central part of the island and we would highly recommend this B&B to anyone!

We stayed with Siggy and Detlef in early June to celebrate our anniversary, they went over and above in every way. The breakfasts were amazing, they gave us great tips on touring and hiking in the area and provided maps, made excellent suggestions on restaurants, and provided bottled water for our excursions. They even had bicycles available for our use. The accommodations were first class, spotless and interestingly decorated with a European touch. They made us feel comfortable hanging out in the yard or their living room. They both have a great sense of humour and share many personal stories. My only concern is we will never again find accommodations that measure up to the Charm of Qualicum!

Room Tip: We stayed on the main floor - the bathroom was superb.
