WISH WE COULD OF STAYED LONGER!

  • 4 of 5
My friends and I (6 of us total) spent a weekend together here and had an absolutely amazing time. We arrived to find the house to be much bigger and nicer than anticipated and didn't have to use the detached bunk house as there were plenty of rooms and beds through out. There is a nice big dining table with lots of chairs so we were all able to sit and enjoy our meals together. The kitchen had everything we needed and the whole house was very clean with lots of towels. The ping pong table was a nice surprise and got well used!
As much fun as we had on our fall/winter stay, I think the house would be better appreciated in the summer as it is right on the lake with its own dock. There is also a fire pit and a nice wrap around covered porch. We will be back for sure!!

ACCOMMODATIONS CONTRIBUTED TO FANTASTIC FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
We were hoping for a great place by the pictures on the ad, but the actual accommodations far exceeded our expectations. Our group consisted of babies to seniors, the ample amenities met all our needs. Our single mature male in the group especially appreciated the solitude of the bunkhouse as opposed to the bustle of the house. The weather was not quite perfect but this did not dampen our holiday. We managed to get some time on the dock fishing, relaxing in the hot tub and hammock, canoeing/boating-our own, hiking to Kinsol Trestle, cider sampling, golfing, shopping, and many a sumptuous feast cooked in the well-supplied kitchen-even a wine cooler and a waffle maker-both were used. We have rented many vacation spots but this is certainly at the top of our list. We have already recommended it to others and are hoping to return.

EXCELLENT STAY

  • 5 of 5
During our stay, my family kept remarking that, in terms of accommodations, this was perhaps one of the best holidays we had taken as a family in recent memory. When we arrived, it was a beautiful July afternoon, so to us, the pictures we saw online had not done justice to the place. The main floor is very bright during the day. Also, the dock now has a fixed tent/pavilion. The place was very clean and well maintained. It has been filled with every little detail, including some of the following: ample beach towels supplied, good books to read, board games, kitchen gadgets and incidentals (we were told to help ourselves to spices, teas, etc. as needed); comfortable mattresses, and the benefit of air conditioning if needed; nice hot tub that stayed hot, and a lovely fire pit to enjoy with an outdoor shower to wash off from the lake etc. Clean, bright, and a 'home away from home'. The caretaker and owner were immediately available to answer questions or supply us with anything we needed (like extra bottled water and wood to burn). We have already begun trying to figure out a time we could return.

OUR NIRVANA

  • 5 of 5
During our stay in early July, my family kept remarking that, in terms of accommodations, Nirvana was perhaps one of the finest vacation properties we had ever rented. This, in turn, made for one of the most enjoyable holidays that we, as a family, have had in recent memory.

When we arrived, it was a beautiful summer afternoon; however, in our estimation, the pictures we saw online had not done justice to the property. The main floor is very bright during the day and the dock has a fixed tent/pavilion which was very much appreciated. The place was clean and well-maintained. The house was abundantly stocked to meet every necessity, including some of the following: ample beach towels, good books, board games, kitchen gadgets and incidentals (we were told to help ourselves to spices, teas, etc., as needed), comfortable mattresses, and the benefit of air conditioning, if required, a hot tub that stayed hot, and a lovely fire pit to enjoy with an outdoor shower to use when coming from the lake. Nirvana can be accurately described as clean, bright, and certainly a 'home away from home'.

I should add that the caretakers, Pat and Penny, were immediately available to answer questions or supply us with anything we needed (i.e. extra bottled water and wood to burn). Also, Michael, the owner, and Ann were extremely helpful and accommodating. We are already considering a return visit in the near future. "The Hoffman Family"

THIS HOUSE OFFERS SOMETHING FOR EVERY FAMILY MEMBER

  • 5 of 5
Our family has stayed at this house several times and we love it. The location near the middle of the lake offers magnificent views, and is immediately calming and relaxing. The water is clear and clean and great for water skiing or sailing, and the oversize dock is a perfect base for swimming or lounging. The kids love it. They can walk to the restaurant 10 or so minutes away, and get hamburgers and milkeshakes. There are also several good small restaurants within a very short drive in the lake's commercial district. Alternatively, the large kitchen is fully equipped and once you are there, you won't feel a need to go anywhere else. Sit in a chair and read a book overlooking the lake. The house is large and very comfortable and great for entertaining. The site is several hundred feet off the road and has just the right number of tall trees. I highly recommend it and our family will be back.

We had a wonderful time at this fantastic lakefront home. It is fully equipped and ideally located on the East Side of Shawnigan Lake. Perfect for waterskiing and the hot tub has a great view of the Lake. We'll definitely be back!
