About John Holtum

Linda & l are retired teachers living in Cobble Hill, 2 hour drive to our beach house.

John Holtum purchased this house in 2006

Why John Holtum chose Bowser

We bought this house so that we could all enjoy it together. The four grandchildren enjoy playing in the sand and looking for crabs & starfish. Sitting out on the deck and beach together as a family is where memories are made!

What makes this house unique

We love watching the eagles from our deck, the cruise ships passing by and sitting at the firepit.

Library, art gallery,grocery store,liquor store & coffee shop are close by. This house sleeps 8 in beds.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We came from Victoria for a getaway for the may long weekend. We travelled with 2 families and it was the perfect amount of room. The kids enjoyed the beach area, not only did they have the rocky shore to explore but a large sandy area to build castles! For the adults we enjoyed watching the many eagles sore, and the ability to use the fire pits that were located by the beach, (we even saw a couple cruise ships pass by). The kitchen was extremely well equipped, and the deck was glorious. There is a grocery store a 2 min drive away, which had exactly what we needed. We can't wait to return!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the cabin was great and close to all amenities, with a bigger center (Courtenay) just 30 minutes drive. We stayed as two, at one point three, couples and the set up couldn't have been better. We spent the majority of our time on the large, partially covered deck, which was just perfect. A lot of that time was spent watch the a bald eagle that perched every night in a tree beside the house. =) At one point we had a large dinner with several friends and the kitchen was completely stocked for such an event. Although none of us had our children with us I could see us coming back and this cabin serving our needs just fine...would have to remember to get sand toys. The owners were easy to deal with and very accommodating to our arrival/departure times. Hope to return soon.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Despite the fact that it is not directly in front of the beach, the house offerred a large deck where you can basically watch what's happening at the beach. Since I had three kids running around at the beach, the deck helped me alot.
Wifi is not avail yet but the owner told me that he will have it working soon.
It is two story building and serves two families just fine [with separate entry]
We used the basement just for the storage and stayed upper level most of the time.
Kayak/boat rental at bowser was not possible and the seacrot resort did not have any either.

However, despite all these little minor things, it was a great place for us to stay.
