“So Fantastic”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

My wife planned this trip for me for my 40th birthday. The operators were more than welcoming. They are warm and friendly people. The suite gives you the option of complete privacy with your own key and entry. The bedroom suite is very nicely appointed and the bed is more than comfortable. We will definately be back.

If you go to Vancouver Island you mustn’t miss Port McNeill, the gateway to lots of breathtaking activities.
For an overnight stay I can warmly recommend Artist Point B & B.
The suite with separate bedroom and living room is really spacious and comfortable. You can enjoy luxurious equipment like big screen TV, DVD and CD player, but the wonderful view of the bay from you private deck won’t give you much time for that.
Right from the warm welcome you’ll appreciate the familiar atmosphere spread by your host and hostess, who will be glad to help you with recommendable trips.
If you want to explore the surroundings without any crowds around you, your host will offer amazing photo trips to grizzlies, whales and other local animals.
I used to start the days with a great breakfast, which the host family prepared according to my individual taste.
I felt so well that I definitely will return to this wonderful place!

A lot of privacy, because the Artists Point offers only one suite with a private access composed of a master bedroom with ensuite very large bathroom and a living room with a very confortable double sofa-bed where my teenager son slept as a prince.
A beautiful view over the ocean, and a porch where you can relax and admire such a beauty (and this porch is used exclusively by the guests).
A very warm welcome, because Rolf and Michelle are possibly the nicest people we met during our 3 weeks vacation in BC (and we only met nice people!) and to their best to make the stay of their guest the most pleasant. Everything is arranged according to their guest needs, starting from the home made breakfast that Michelle cooks every morning on your order and at the time you like
All this would be an excellent B&B, but there is much more!!!!!!! Rolf is a professional photographer, and offers you the chance of taking photo tours with him on land (with his 4 wheel drive car) or by sea (with his friend, unforgettable Captain Pete). We took two tours with him during our stay, learning a lot about photography, walking in the rain forest and on beautiful beaches (absolutely alone, the 4 of us!!!) and photo-hunting eagles and humpbacks amidst the hundreds of islet off shore the coast.
We spent only three nights at the Artists Point, but it is certainly worth of a longer stay!

Location? Incredible! Food? Delicious! The hosts? Gracious! Photo workshop? Out of this world!

We basically had the entire lower level of the house as our own "suite". It was comfortable and spacious.

My wife and I are amateur photographers -- basically intermediate skill levels. During the photo workshop, Rolf was able to feed us information at just the right pace -- not too fast and complicated, and not too slow and simple. We both came home feeling like our photography skills were much improved. There's no doubt Rolf can contribute to the skills of anyone from beginner to professional. And the photo shoot locations are not only picturesque (hard to take a bad picture!), but also are places that we would never have found on our own. The entire experience was one we'll never forget. We would definitely go back again.

Whilst the property, amenities and location lived up to their billing, the most pleasant surprise was the warmth and hospitality of Rolf and Michelle. They ensured that the Artists Point was not only the base for a magnificient 4 day trip to this wonderland, it was a highlight in itself. We will definitely be back for a Rolf photo-tour.

Unique and affordable B&B with only a single unit. A converted daylight basement transformed into a spacious well decorated living area with a separate entrance. The area is divided into a living room and a bedroom with a large bathroom. Nice place to relax and unwind after a day of touring, kayaking, hiking, whale watching, etc... on North Vancouver Island. Great made to order breakfasts. You get to chose the time you want to eat since you're the only guests. So feel free to sleep in or get up early. Friendly hosts that will assist you in planning any activities you may be interested in. They definitely went above and beyond our expectations. The best compliment I can make is we will be back. One recommendation I have is to stay for several days so you can truly enjoy this area and still have time to relax.
