“A beautiful place to stay on the Sunshine Coast!”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Our stay at Boxwood was wonderful. We rented the Boxwood Suite and it was clean, well-kept, and a lovely space to stay in - not to mention the view of the ocean! Diana's gardens are truly spectacular and we really enjoyed the beautiful garden environment. A highlight was a BBQ dinner we enjoyed in the garden made with marinade kindly provided to us by Diana.

Diana was a wonderful hostess and was always readily available and had lots of tips for our stay on the Sunshine Coast.

Overall, we had a really relaxing and happy stay here at Boxwood and would love to come back some day!

Very private accommodations in a character home. Beautiful gardens, view of the ocean. Close to the ferry. I would stay again.

“Gardens galore!”
Reviewed 12 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

What a find. Dianna Wood has several options for sleeping, from a secluded treehouse to an English cottage and other options in between. My family of four stayed in the suites, part of the main house. Three fine bedrooms a tiny kitchenette and access to fabulous gardens and outdoor space. Hammocks, gazebos, swings and luscious garden eye candy. The honeysuckle hips were tasty too,Dianna gave us some homemade raspberry preserves, showed us where to boil the crab for our outdoor dinner and told us where to buy the crabs as well. My only complaint is that I didn't have enough time to really see it all. And I tried.
FYI My check took almost 2 weeks to make into Canada from Colorado.

“amazing gardens”
Reviewed 2 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

there is no doubt that the property is amazing, every nook is filled with delightful surprises. The accommodation however needs a bit of work. It is a very old house and while it is adequate, it is loosing it's appeal. Best to spend as much time as possible outside! The tree house definitely has a mold/mildew problem and needs new bedding and a good airing out. The cobwebs threaten to take over the buildings but the bedding and towels were clean. Think, very rustic!

“A Beautiful, Comfortable & Quiet Getaway!”
Reviewed 18 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This is my 4th stay at the Boxwood Cottages and I have always thoroughly enjoyed my time spent here. The suites have 3 full bedrooms with double beds, a kitchenette, living room and bath. The setting is beautiful, quiet and comfortable. The owner is gracious and personable. I love the organic gardens and the variety of plants and trees is interesting. The place is clean and very comfortable. The location is excellent with a view of the ocean. A great place to relax with a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine in the garden. I look forward to coming back. My biggest dissapointment is that I never get to spend enough time here!
