Oasis in Campbell River

  • 5 of 5
The house is absolutely charming, unique, beautifully furnished, and very well stocked. I appreciated how private and quiet the property is. The only noises were welcome… crashing waves and bird song. Despite very cold weather, I enjoyed my coffee or chai on the deck each AM, with the heaters turned on, and watched the hummingbird that visited the feeder just feet away from me. I could not ask for better hosts. Georges and Rumina are wonderful and their attention to detail is remarkable. I would love to return to Taste of Zanzibar at any time of the year.

Great House/Location!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time in Campbell River so just wanted to explore a little; try the restaurants/pubs; and relax. It was fall so we had rain, sun, wind, clouds--everything! The house/property was comfortable in all weather. We enjoyed the electric fireplaces inside; the hot tub with a view of the ocean; the porch with the heaters and the view!; the driftwood beach; the DVD library; the great wifi. (The wifi wasn't working well when we got here so the next day, Georges had a new router installed!)

Georges and Rumina, the owners, were great! Rumina made some great chocolate/banana breakfast cake that we snacked on the whole time. The refrigerator was stocked with milk, eggs, butter, etc. and Georges brought some great bread for toasting. Rumina had the bathroom stocked with a variety of high-end hair products to try. Everything was clean and the house was tastefully decorated and very interesting!

We were close to town and enjoyed walking the Rotary Seawalk with all the wood carvings and of course, the beautiful view! We loved the view of Elk Falls north of town and the huge trees! We enjoyed the Quay West Pub and the Riptide Pub in town.

We would definitely come here again and will recommend it to our friends!

Happy Guests from Seabeck, WA

Great for families

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent time at Taste of Zanzibar. The owners, Georges and Rumina, were so friendly and made us feel at home. They have thoughtfully included all the necessities and we spent many hours watching the eagles on the beach and trees around the property. It was great to grille up a meal and then afterwards sit in the hot tub and watch the sunset. We recommend it highly!

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 3 nights and would have stayed longer if we could plan it over. The location was incredible. It was difficult to leave the house because who wants to get out of a hot tub with that view?? We had everything we needed - lovely beds, well-appointed kitchen fully stocked, chairs on the porch under heat lamps if needed, fireplaces, fire pit with plenty of wood on beach, eagles and herons and songbirds everywhere, the list goes on... Georges had us checked in and comfy with the house in minutes and gave us great restaurant and activity options and then was out the door to leave us to it; returning later to leave us a homemade carrot cake that his partner had made. What?! I cannot wait to return.

Outstanding Vacation rental!!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at many places through VRBO and lots of resorts and hotels around the world. This private rental, better yet oasis, is one of the most gorgeous places we have stayed. The owners take such pride in the home and it is evident throughout. If you want a fantastic get away that is true west coast style this is it!! the hot tub is to die for, house is super funky and really clean! We can't wait to go back! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending. We stayed there for a week when we moved back to Canada from Australia and it was a godsend to have such an oasis to regroup, get over our jetlag and as a bonus celebrate our son's 24th! It was fantastic! And we were able to have our dogs there! Such a bonus.

Perfect Place - Perfect Hosts - Could Not Ask For More!

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to Campbell River for a number of years now (can't wait to retire there). We have tried a variety of accommodations - once we stayed at TOZ, we didn't not look any further for future trips. We have now stayed at TOZ 4 times, returning this coming summer for the July 1st weekend (we hear that you can watch the fireworks from the hot-tub). This is a fabulous location and the hosts are wonderful.
