Amazing, Spacious, Great Views, Well Equipped, Perfectly Situated

  • 5 of 5
We went here with my parents and two other siblings and their spouses, as an alternative to going to one of the beachside resorts near Parksville. What a fantastic choice! This house is incredibly spacious, which allowed for each of us to have our own space, but still be able to be together in the living room or kitchen if we chose to, or play pool downstairs, or sit on the very large deck, or visit in the living room area downstairs...the options go on! Not only was the house spacious and well equipped with all the dishes and cooking-ware that we needed, it is also situated in a fantastic location. There is a little beach area in the back, which was perfect for the kids to play on, and the water was literally a stone's throw away; so close that when you looked at the water from the angle of sitting inside during high tide, you almost felt like you were on a boat because you wouldn't see the land between the house and the water. Out the front of the house, either from the kitchen window or the huge front deck, you could sit and look at the marina. Yes, water views from almost all windows! The house was very clean when we arrived, and exceeded any expectations we had from the listing description and photos provided. The owners were also very great to deal with, immediately responsive and very helpful. This is also a great location for exploring the Island, as it's not too far to explore some of the sites, such as Coombs, Parksville, the caves, Cathedral Grove, etc. We have nothing but great things to say about this listing and we will certainly consider coming back again in the future.

Christmas Famiyl Reunion

  • 5 of 5
An excellent selection for a family reunion. We had 12 guests from 3 generations and the house easily accommodated us. There was space to sit and read, recreation downstairs for a game of pool or a friendly card game and then there was those amazing views. We enjoyed great weather and were even able to bbq outside one evening. It was a very relaxing place to spend Christmas and we are considering a return in the summer when we can really take advantage of the great outdoors.

Gathering of Friends

  • 5 of 5
We are a group of retired friends (4 couples) who travel together once a year. We have rented in the States, Canada, and Europe a total of nine times. Our group voted Heron House the "BEST EVER" house we have rented. We were lucky to have a week of warm temperatures and full sunshine--every evening meal was enjoyed on the deck. Some meals were on the marina side and some on the Georgia Strait side. We had enough seating for everyone to sit in a comfortable place in the living room and read. The bedrooms were large enough and four bathrooms a plus! I was concerned about driving distances for sightseeing which turned out to not be a problem because of our proximity to a major highway, Inland Island Highway 19. We hiked, picnicked, visited a variety of museums, and lunched out. Julie and John were at the house when we arrived and gave us suggestions for places to go. Their kindness and caring were above and beyond what we have experienced with other rentals---thanks you two!!! Anyone looking at Heron House for a vacation rental won't be disappointed!

Heron House

  • 5 of 5
We found Heron House to be a wonderful choice for our family vacation.The house was accurate in description and the the location was amazing with wonderful water views front and back.It was very clean and well maintained.The bedroom layout is perfect for 2 or 3 generations.We enjoyed going to Victoria for the day and I particularly loved taking my granddaughter to high tea at the Fairmont Empress.The nearby Marine Research Center was enjoyed by all.We went to Campbell River for a day and enjoyed the falls,as well as the downtown and a woodcutting sculpture contest.We had a lovely meal in town by the water. We found fresh seafood nearby that we prepared at home.We had family there from New York City,Baltimore,Md,Hilton Head,South Carolina,Sandpoint,Id and Maple Falls,Wa. Needless to say,we all loved our week there. Thank you John and Julie for being so helpful with our arrangements and questions. You were terrific.

great vacation experience

  • 5 of 5
This house was awesome for our family party. It had lots of space, a beautiful living area and deck and plenty of things to do. It was so nice to be in walking distance of the Marine Research facility where my daughter had a spectacular wedding. The house was so nice and it helped to make the whole weekend perfect.
