This my second time staying at boxwood suites. The host,Diana, is very warm and welcoming and she provided everything we needed. She even taught us how to make a fire! We enjoyed the spectacular gardens and campfire. We really felt at home. View is wonderful and overall I would come Bach anytime. Rooms are clean and cozy !

“Peaceful & Relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Boxwood Cottage & Gardens was a fantastic B&B to stay in while I was visiting Powell River for work related reasons. I stayed in the Boxwood Suite, which was a beautiful suite that was both comfortable and cozy! Although, I had never visited Boxwood before I immediately felt at home and welcomed by the fire that Diana had going in the wood burning fireplace, which made our arrival on a cold January night very cozy! The Boxwood suite is beautifully designed and decorated with heritage and antique furniture that adds to the charm of the heritage suite! I will definitely be back in the summer with my sisters to visit Diana who is an amazing hostess and to enjoy her beautiful suite and magical gardens! Looking forward to visiting again!

Helo Shannon,

Thank you so much for your review, I would love to see you and your sister to stay at Boxwood Suite again. If you like roses and lilies, the month of June is a good time to visit. Garden Tour this year will be on june 15th, the lunch will be served in my garden, And life music will be played under the grape arbour. And another date is August 16th , there will be music concert in my garden. It is a fund raising event for the scholarship and botanic garden.

Thanks again for your wonderful review!

Warm Regards,
Diana

“Warm, cozy and comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I stayed with a colleague at the Boxwood Cottage for two nights for a work trip. The location is great - near the University and downtown. The cottage is warm, cozy and comfortable and the bed was super comfortable. The owner Diana was fantastic and we felt super welcome in the property. I will certainly stay there next time and look forward to getting a better chance to explore the gardens on the property.

“A delightful garden retreat awaits at Boxwood Cottages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014 for a stay in July 2012

We have just booked our second stay at Boxwood Cottages with the same group of friends we enjoyed this delightful accommodation with 2 years ago. All were in favor of returning again. Diana has done an incredible job! The cottage has comfortable funky charm and was well equipped, with kitchen and living spaces ample for our group of seven adults. We spent most of our onsite time either enjoying the many sitting areas outdoors or wandering through the amazing and extensive gardens with incredible variety. We even found the short walk (to the 2nd bathroom with a shower) as it meant a bonus walk through the gardens coming and going! Boxwood"s central location makes for a nice stroll to the downtown and many excellent eating establishments.

“Magic....”

This is the second time we have stayed with Diana at Boxwood Cottages and both times we have stayed in her "Tree House." And a tree house is exactly what it is - but better. Nestled up in the trees, up a driftwood staircase is a magical place. A small stream runs almost underneath, an outside eating area and deck complete the treehouse "upstairs." Below the treehouse is a sheltered area, (dining room!), a patio with small firepot for a leisure area and a covered sofa (living room) are right there as well. From there, you look into Diana's labour of love... her garden. From trees, to flowers, to fruit, to veg, bonsai trees... it just doesn't stop.
My inlaws joined us this time and they stayed in the cottage. A cute heritage home that provided a kitchen and living room if the weather turned poor (it never did!). The property has multiple areas that you can sit and relax and enjoy. From the front of the cottage we watched the ferries move in and out and the sunsets... truly amazing! Thank you again Diana, we will see you again!!

“A beautiful place to stay on the Sunshine Coast!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!
