“The Wild West Coast”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My Husband and I stayed at Handsome Dan's Cottages for the second time, and these accommodations do not disappoint! The cabins are well appointed (all you need is your food and clothes) and designed beautifully and comfortable.
The area is spectacular to explore, so if your get-away desires are to enjoy nature, solitude, and adventure Handsome Dan's Wild West Cottages are for you!!

Had a great stay in Port Renfrew. Beautiful drive up, had a great time exploring the area, and the cabin was just as described.

“Absolutely Enchanting Cottage!”
Reviewed 10 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This was our best trip up to now. We stayed at a cottage called "Blondie's Hideaway". It has everything we needed. The place was extremely clean. The kitchen appliances are fairly new. The cottage has a variety of music for us to enjoy. The fireplace kept us cozy. The porch smelled like fresh cedar wood. We really enjoyed our stay and we would definitely recommend it to our friends and family!

“Lovely spot, great rental”
Reviewed 9 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at Dill Ville # 63 with our son & his new bride for 2 nights. Our accommodation was beautiful, clean & well-equipped. The kitchen was stocked with items most would forget to bring, brown sugar, coffee, tea, saran wrap, dish soap, laundry soap, washer & dryer, dishwasher, barbecue, microwave, ice cubes, etc. The view outside the balcony was exceptional -- we saw snow & arrived in a hail storm (I know it doesn't rain in Port Renfrew). We hiked around the area & saw wonderful trees, lush, mystical looking greenery, snow-capped mountains, abundant ferns, etc. Do your food shopping ahead of your stay, there isn't a grocery store nearby. Spend extra & don't rely on the pull-out couch for a good night's sleep.

“A cozy, quiet week for two!”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We chose this cabin because of its remote coastal location, because of the great reviews, and because of the hassle-free booking procedure, with no hefty deposits, extra fees etc. We booked Blondie's Hideaway because it is a no-pet cabin. We stopped at Langford Superstore and stocked up for a week, and we were so happy on arriving at the cabin to see that it was perfect, with plenty of heat and hot water, good bed, and lots of ventilation too. Kitchen has everything, lots of spices, coffee beans, grinder, and French press! The deck is very spacious, and generous amount of wood for the fire pit. There are lots of hiking trails, which we loved. During our week we saw a grey whale (just off Botanical Beach) a sea otter, seals, a martin, elk, bald eagles, swans, geese, flickers, cormorants, ducks of many varieties. When it rains there are books, games, and movies. Slept so soundly here, no noise pollution at all!

“Like at home!”
Reviewed 23 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed for 3 nights in the Fish Tales cottage with our 4 children, including a baby. Very comfortable and so well equiped, with all you need in the kitchen, books, dvd, wii, netflix, board games, and so much more (even shower caps in the bathroom!). The view is fabulous and it really worth to rent with that view. And the weather was fantastic!
France (aka the French girl) is so kind, very helpful and available. A real pleasure!
Merci!

“Clean and cozy cabin reasonably priced.”
Reviewed 19 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The quiet cabin we rented was quite cozy and very clean. It included everything we needed, including all cooking utensils, linens, soap, shampoo, etc. Rental was very easy. Friendly service and clear instructions for entry. A binder inside described the area and had information on trails, the beaches nearby, and where to get food. Cabin also included wifi and a DVD player with a decent selection of movies. There was a fire pit outside that we did not use due to weather. This is a beautiful part of the world and the cabin was a comfortable home to come back to after a day of exploring. The cabin we stayed in also accepted pets. We brought our dog.
