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.

A TRULY LOVELY PLACE, MADE STILL BETTER BY ITS EVEN MORE LOVELY OWNERS!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (wife and 3 teenage kids) are now back home and missing this place already! It was so wonderful to come to somewhere which was so welcoming and pretty, with such phenomenal views and an abundance of wildlife, where we could really enjoy the relaxing atmosphere (greatly aided by frequent use of the hot tub!). Even more than that, though, the owners need special mention for being such generous, attentive and sweet-natured hosts - they looked after all of us so well, and went far beyond the call of duty, especially in regard to helping my wife, who had sprained her knee just before we arrived, providing not just ample moral support, cakes and other delicacies but also alternative therapy to help her treat her injury! They are a lovely, kind, caring couple who really are comitted to helping their guests have a good time.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Taste of Zanzibar to anyone looking for a tranquil family holiday or a restful retreat - hopefully we will be able to return some day for more! - though it is also eminently suitable as a base for a more busy holiday with all the many amenities of Cambell River just 10k up the road.as well as the many proviincial parks and activity opportunities within easy reach. Do check the list of local events and activities as there are many such things to participate in if you are so inclined.

Highly recommended! :)

4TH OF JULY AT TASTE OF ZANZIBAR

  • 4 of 5
Good morning Georges & Rumina. Just a note from down here to say we very much enjoyed our stay at Taste of Zanzibar. The house and all the accommodations were very comfortable. We enjoyed your tasteful selection of decor, pictures and other art pieces in the house. Thanks so much for the kitchen supplies and especially the fresh muffins, which we did not have to freeze. They didn't last that long! The view across the strait with the coast mountains in the background is world class, and the ever-present eagles were a special delight. It was nice getting to know you.

DON'T BOOK ANYWHERE ELSE

Don't book anywhere else

There are three things I look for when renting a property; the hosts, the location, and the property.

The hosts at Taste of Zanzibar treated us like honored guests, accommodating a last-minute change of plans very well, providing fantastic communication throughout the process of booking the property, and being there when questions needed to be answered.

The location of the house is terrific. Right on the beach, lots of wildlife, beautiful trees, quiet neighbors–a perfect setting. A large public beach is within easy walking distance on the waterline. The house is close enough to the road to be handy, but far enough away that we never heard vehicular traffic while we were there. It also had quick access to the Inland Highway. The house is far enough away from town to feel rural, but close enough for a quick trip. It is an ideal location.

The property is not for everyone, but suited us perfectly. If you are looking for a sparkling new home, this is not your place. It is an older, well-maintained property with lots of charm and ambiance. What it has is lots of rooms that makes it feel bigger than it looks from the outside. The small-ish rooms each have their own function and give the home a comfortable, intimate feeling. There were 5 of us staying there and one evening we had 6 guests over and we never once felt cramped. On the contrary, because of the layout in a few seconds you can go from a rocking good time in one room to a quiet time in another. The bedrooms were well-appointed and had nice views. The bathrooms as well, and the laundry facilities were very much appreciated.

Would I return to Taste of Zanzibar? In a heartbeat! The sound of the sea, the bald eagles overhead, the relaxing hot tub, walking out on the beach at low tide . . . I’m ready to go back now!
