We had a peaceful and relaxing stay in beautiful Qualicum Beach. The house is cosy, clean and comfortable and has all the amenities of home. The backyard is sunny and private, a great place to enjoy your morning coffee or read in the afternoon. A short walk takes you to the stores and restaurants of downtown. We look forward to a return stay.
I had the pleasure of staying at this cozy property from October 2012 until December 2013. The House is very well maintained and offers all amenities such as W/D, Dishwasher, a fully equipped kitchen, a lovely patio, garden, huge Garage....
The beautiful Beach and many walking/hiking trails are very close by, the supermarket can easily be reached and there is no need to use your car, which I found highly convenient. Qualicum Beach overall is a great Place to stay/live, with lots of unique stores, cafes and restaurants (all in walking distance from the property!). Most of the Island's attraction (i.e. Cathedral Grove, Tofino, Victoria...) can be reached by car for day or weekend trips.
I can't say enough nice things about the owners Linda and Allison, they are simply amazing and super nice people.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at 817 Primrose in Qualicum Beach and I sure hope to return in the future.
What a great place to stay! The hosts were helpful in our planning with many recommendations of places to see and things to do. It was a great base to travel anywhere on the island! It was about 2 hours to Victoria (Butchart Gardens were breathtaking!). Two hours to the west coast where we went whale watching with Jamie's Whale watching tours. We didn't see any whales the first trip out, they gave us a voucher to go again and we saw a gray whale. It was thrilling to see a whale but even if we hadn't, the trip was beautiful and the tour guides friendly and knowledgable. There were great beaches to go shell hunting and tide pool viewing within 10 minutes, one beach we went to had THOUSANDS of sand dollars! The house was clean, had wonderful plush towels, beautiful wood floors, and a gas fireplace that really took off the chill on the damp days. The kitchen was more than adequate, with all the necessary utensils, pans, etc. Even a full spice rack! We especially loved the back yard, it had a great deck with a grill and tables and chairs, but the best part was that it felt so private with beautiful plants and flowers all around. We just got home and I'm ready to go back! Thank you Linda and Allison!
WE COULD NOT HAVE HAD A MORE GRACIOUS AND THOUGHTFUL OWNERS.
THE HOME WAS SPOTLESS AND SUPPLIED WITH LINENS ETC.
DELIGHTED WITH THE THOUGHTFULL ITEMS OVER AND ABOVE WHAT WAS EXPECTED.
WE WOULD DEFINITELY WANT TO STAY AGAIN ON OUR NEXT VISIT.

THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR STAY SO PLEASANT.
