Your Hosts, Roger and Cathy, moved to the estate ten years ago and painstakingly restored to main log home to its original beauty. The property was developed to compliment and blend with the indigenous forest and woodland species and stream fed lake. If you are a gardener, you will appreciate the wide variety of unusual trees and plants as well as an indigenous garden. Besides our day jobs, we are both glass artisans and spend many hours in our working studio using large kilns to produce functional glass art. We look forward to sharing our property with you!

Extraordinary Experience

  • 5 of 5
The description of this property and the pictures in the listing did not fully prepare us for the beauty and tranquility of the setting. I could never describe in mere words how we blessed we felt each day to wake up in an earthly paradise. The owners could not have been more charming or gone out of their way more to make our stay more pleasant or enjoyable. Both my husband and I truly appreciated the chance to spend our wedding anniversary in this beautiful garden setting. We will definitely be returning. We highly recommend this property.

Our best VRBO

  • 5 of 5
We have been using VRBO for many years, staying several times in VRBO units on/in Maui, Hawaii, Kauai, Key Largo, Mammoth, Las Vegas, and Cape Cod. This was our best experience. Cathy has made a very comfortable and appealing guest unit on a secluded 3 acre parcel. She anticipated and provided for our every need. The quality and cleanliness of the unit, its furnishing, and unit supplies was superb in every way.

The stay here was extraordinary in that the owners went out of their way to make us as comfortable as is humanely possible. It was a sheer pleasure to enjoy such kindness and friendship. The accomodations were first class, everything was included that one could possibly wish for a long stay. And if anything extra was needed it would be provided immediately. The setting is beautiful, a park like atmosphere that has been creatively designed to incorporate a small lake with beautiful ducks and swans amongst fantastic trees and gardens. We have no hesitation in recommending this property. The listing description and photographs are accurate. Everything was well maintained and clean. There is ample parking even for an RV.

wonderful stay in awesome surroundings

  • 5 of 5
We just spent the most amazing two weeks at this location - the hosts are awesome and they made us feel really welcome and at home. The accommodation and grounds are absolutely beautiful and Roger and Cathy as hosts are just perfect. They helped us to explore areas of the Island and provided really helpful info - alongside the openess and friendliness that they just exude. You can also experience a glass project as a family if you want, use the kayaks, have a camping experience on site or just simply sit back and relax in the amazing grounds.

The area is also perfect for exploring and it makes a great central location from which you can travel to Victoria, Parksville, Qualicum beach etc all easily and then you can look forward to coming back to the tranquility of the grounds. We also went to Tofino for the day and went whale watching which was great.

You arrive as guests and leave as friends.....one of the best holidays we have had in a long time. The property is great - we have a family of five who were easily accomodated; all ammenities were as described and it just felt as though whatever you needed was always on hand.

Definately recomend this to others and will come back again.

We had a superb stay in this beautiful setting. Cottage was very well equipped, clean & well maintained. Photos on the website accurately reflected the actual site. It was everything indicated on the web ad & more. Very personable owner, very willing to make our stay enjoyable. Reasonably priced. 5 acres of property to walk around & enjoy. A great place to get away from the hectic pace of urban living for quiet & also to do some hiking & exploring. Easy, 30 minute access from Duke Pt. ferry. I plan to refer friends & others to this hidden gem & make a return visit in the future.
