Guestbook comments from the owner
We've had a wonderful time; thanks for allowing us to visit your home.

Bought fish at the french street marina... i've shopped for fish all over the

globe... have found a new fav. We watched an otter play and dine for an hour

last night on the beach here... kayaked in the bay today to visit seals and sea

lions.



We've tried to treat this home as if it were ours (if i had a spare million and

the commute was a wee bit friendlier maybe...)... lived mostly in the kitchen

(as a food guy two thumbs up... really well appointed!!!).



A wonderful end to our time on Vancouver Island... Kate Wendy and I thank

you for the chance to stay here.

This property for us is both a primary and secondary home depending on the time of year. We love this property because we can go from the doorstep of our home in Calgary to the doorstep of this property within less than 4 hours by plane. It is a perfect location where we have all of the luxurious amenities and charm of a west coast beach home, without it being over populated in a tourist area. The popular tourist destinations are a short drive away. For us, it is an idilic location for rest and relaxation; a place to create family memories; a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

GREAT LOCATION - A FEW SIMPLE IMPROVEMENTS WOULD HAVE MADE IT EXCELLENT

  • 3 of 5
The house is in an excellent location with great views from the deck. We saw eagles, seals, and deer with fawns right outside the window. The deck has a new BBQ, and is partially covered, which is nice when there is the odd shower. A table seats five, and there are two folding camp chairs. Heating works well, and there is plenty of hot water.

The kitchen is large, well-equipped, and there are four stools around the large island. The living room seats at most four on two love seats. The dining room table is big enough to seat ten; there are six chairs. We did not use the sauna because the adjacent shower leaked and was not usable. The master bath has a huge shower with two shower heads (one is a rain shower), and horizontal water jets (we did not see the advertised "steam" option).

The two upstairs bedrooms are a good size, the beds are comfortable, and there is lots of storage. The window coverings are OK for privacy but don't keep the light out, so we woke up with the sunrise. The downstairs bedroom has a comfortable bed and an ensuite bath. There are no window coverings in the downstairs bedroom. The basement has a DVD player and a television, but there is no TV service (satellite, cable, or terrestrial).

The experience would have been nicer if there was more (and more comfortable) seating in the living room (a couple of armchairs) and on the deck (a few sun loungers), and if the bedrooms had better window coverings that kept them reasonably dark. If a TV is advertised, there should at least be a basic terrestrial digital service - all it needs to make it work with the existing rabbit-ears is a $100 box.

GREAT GETAWAY SPOT!

  • 4 of 5
Beautiful spot, lovely house, all was in order and well equipped. Directions were clear, pre administration by Rhonda was done well. Enjoyed our stay very much.
On the negative side; beds were overly hard, basement was cold and cleaning fee was high.
Would still recommend the property!

EXCELLENT STAY IN WONDERFUL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
Good location that provided a secluded and private environment. Spectacular view 24/7 that one never gets tired of. The property was clean and well maintained, exactly as shown in the pictures, and we had all the amenities we needed for our family gathering of 10. The kids had fun beachcombing and endlessly fascinated by the variety of sea creatures just a short hop down. Rhonda always provided timely response throughout the process from our initial rental enquiries to check-in.
We all had a great time. Would definitely recommend this property.

SIMPLY AMAZING...

  • 5 of 5
Reef house is a bright, beautiful home in an absolutely stunning setting. This is a property for which photos cannot do justice and must be seen to be fully appreciated! Perfect for a relaxing getaway with easy access to a variety of activities and attractions, this was the absolute perfect location for our small, intimate wedding. The property was very clean and well maintained. Customer service was great and Rhonda was always prompt with answering any questions or concerns that we had along the way. We would definitely recommend this property to friends or family.

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY IN A SPECTACULAR LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
I enjoyed a wonderful getaway at the beautiful Reef Beach House! The house is very clean, spacious and well appointed, with all the amenities one could need. The owner was wonderful to deal with and her directions, very easy to follow. I arrived in no time at all (less than 30 mins with a stop at the wine store!) from the Departure Bay (Nanaimo, BC) Ferry Terminal. The Reef Beach house is ideally located right on the water in the Nuttal Bay (I think) area of Nanoose Bay. I arrived at sunset where I enjoyed a glass of wine on the deck while I watched the sea lions play out front in the bay and listened to the waves crash. The peacefulness and tranquility is palpable and yet, part of a lively community with many activities nearby. Be sure to take a stroll around Reed Road, visit the local area and squeeze in a golf game (I played Fairwinds and it was fantastic!) or whatever activities interest you - there is no shortage! I highly recommend renting this property to anyone. The customer service was excellent and welcome package very informative - a very simple, customer friendly rental process. The only downside...leaving... until next time!
