The home and grounds were clean, spacious, well-quipped and homey. We felt instantly at home and relaxed as we read books and looked out over the ocean, The grounds were lovely and the beds/sheets were better than any high-end hotel we've stayed at! We cooked a lot of meals in the large wall-equipped kitchen and dined in the dining room over looking the ocean. The decorating was very much to our taste and reminded us of our home. It was such a comfortable stay that our daughter asked to spend her 15th birthday this summer at the house and we had a nice celebration for her on August 16.
This rental was one of the best places we have ever stayed.
The house is as stunning in person as it is in the photos and is accurately depicted. What you can't tell by the photos is that it is very quiet and private and serene with many resident deer, eagles and hummingbirds. The house is located on a less populated part of the island 8 minutes from town driving through a gorgeous tree tunnel. A few minutes walk out the door and down the road is a nature reserve with great forest trails. The ocean keeps the temperature moderate and the view is jaw dropping. I would highly recommend this home and hope I am lucky enough to come back one day to stay again.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here in August 2011. I was looking for a rural "retreat" for relaxation. This house has great views of the water. I enjoyed watching ferries and other boats sailing by. The sound of the lapping waves was very soothing. It is also surrounded by some incredibly tall trees. The visuals of the swaying trees and the sounds as the wind blew through the giant trees was also relaxing. Deer are plentiful on this island and frequently make appearances on the property. I have to admit that driving on Gabriola was the only non-relaxing part of my vacation as I had several close calls with deer at dusk and after nightfall. The highlights of the house for me were the amazing hot tub, and the many comfortable chairs that were just perfect for enjoying some summer reading. The hosts were extremely helpful and answered any questions that I had. My dog enjoyed the huge yard, and we also explored several of the local trails. If I am ever heading this way again, I will definitely check to see if it is available. I give this property top marks for its relaxation effects, and for its privacy.
This is a fantastic place for a group. Lots of space so you are not on top of each other. Beautiful bedrooms - very private and great views. The kitchen is fabulous and very large, which is great, since it always seems to be a gathering place. My only complaint is that the time there was too short and we didn't get to explore the island. I would definitely recommend this destination.
