Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in ARBUTUS GROVE COTTAGE, Erin. We were glad that you were able to drive our Ford Focus during your brief stay as it eliminated much of the hassle associated with ferry reservations.Tundra seemed to enjoy the chance to run free on most of our island trails.We hope you will consider us for future visits to Galiano

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us at STICKS and STONES COTTAGES. Summer is a busy time for us on Galiano Island so it is a pleasure to read that we were able to make your family vacation notable. Finding out that we grew up in the northern town of Yellowknife, NT was the 'icing on the cake' We hope that you will choose to stay with us again if the Southern Gulf Islands is on your family holiday agenda.We enjoyed meeting you and your family......Ralph and Rocky

“Beautiful Cottage & Wonderful Hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed at Arrow's Run Cottage and our whole family was very impressed with how beautiful & comfortable it was. Ralph & Rocky thought of everything. The kitchen was well stocked - all kinds of condiments, utensils, pots & pans, even down to exotic rock salt! They were also extremely friendly & helpful. Rocky's cookies were delicious! They gave us many wonderful suggestions on places to visit. We'd definitely come back!

“Wonderful, Pet friendly , Clean Getaway house on Galiano Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We stayed at Arrows Run for 3 days in March. The weather was cloudy and it rained all of one day but the house was open, bright, clean and had lots of windows and sky lights so we didn't mind the cloudiness and rain. Arrows Run is pet friendly so we brought along our 2 dogs who had a wonderful vacation. There was lots of yard for them to run in and because the property is on a dead end road there wasn't any traffic to worry about. The house has 2 very nice bedrooms with queen beds and 2 bathrooms. There is a bedroom and a bathroom downstairs and a set of stairs that take you to a loft and the master bedroom and a bathroom. There is a pull out sofa in the little living room in the loft. The house was very clean and modern with very nice appliances. The furniture was comfortable and there was a nice choice of DVD's. We spent a lot of time in the house because of the weather and we enjoyed the comfort and the brightness very much. Ralph and Rocky were not there when we were but Bill, the property manager ,was very nice and helpful. Ralph was very easy to communicate with by email and everything went so smoothly and effortlessly. We enjoyed Galiano a lot and I want to go back when it is a bit warmer and sunnier and of course stay at Arrows Run. I would recommend this rental to anyone.

We really appreciate that you took the time to review ARROW'S RUN COTTAGE, Joanne. Considering the inclement weather it is good to read that you were able to enjoy yourself inside the cottage and take advantage of the quiet surroundings. Galiano is considered Mediterranean climate so it is unfortunate that your time coincided with a particular rainy period. A visit during the Summer months is usually warm and sunny. We look forward to meeting you on your return visit.

Hi Jana and Rob....we are so pleased to read that your visit to Galiano was a memorable one....especially as your Father, visiting from the Czech Republic, was able to aaccompany you along with your young daughters. We hope you will be able to return later in the summer to sample the summer delights of our island.

“Great place in a peaceful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Have stayed here before and decided to return again, this time with even more family. We stayed in both upper and lower Arrow's Run, and were not disappointed. My favorite part was the short walk down to a beautiful sandstone beach with morning coffee in hand, and returning each evening in our PJ's to watch the sun set. We were travelling with 3 generations, and there was plenty of room for all of us. The washer/ dryer in each unit was great, and each unit was well equiped to prepare some great meals which we enjoyed on the large deck. Our two dogs made themselves at home and it was very nice to be able to bring them along. Ralph and Rocky were great hosts, and stopped in a few times with much appreciated home-made goodies. They recommended a few different beaches to visit, besides the spectacular shell beach at Montegue Harbour We loved Morning Beach, and will return again onour next visit. As a large group travelling with young children and two dogs, we felt very welcome at Sticks and Stones. My grandkids had a blast and can't wait to visit again.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of ARROW'S RUN COTTAGE, Deborah. It was great that we could accommodate your extended family. When you left, the cottage was spotless. We greatly appreciated the care and concern you showed our facilities, especially during our hectic summer period when guests were arriving daily. We hope we can provide you and your family a summer holiday location for the years to come. We wish you well.......Ralph and Rocky
