My wife and I had a great weekend at Jan's place and did not want to leave. The heater was fantastic on the chilly nights, fantastic view over Backstairs Passage and a comfortable and clean house to stay in. We'll be back for sure.

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review Francis. We're very glad you found the house clean, comfortable and you enjoyed the views. We look forward to having you return!
