3 Bedroom suite with 1 Bath (Sleeps 5) attached on-suite +$75. (Sleeps 4)
Quiet and close to nature, we have a beautifully landscaped garden with a koi pond and fountain. A large covered BBQ area and additional fire pit. We also have many nature walks directly from the property and can even arrange yoga retreats. We also offer guided trail rides on our gorgeous friendly mares to our guests at 50% off.
The accommodation includes one bathroom with a stand up shower, and three bedrooms with one queen, one double, and one single bed. The kitchen is fully functional with fridge, convection oven, microwave, coffee maker and dishes. All towels and utensils are supplied for any basic needs. The living room is an open concept with the kitchen and has a large private deck off to the side. For larger groups our suite has an attached on-suite that sleeps 4. The on-suite rents for an additional $75. Per night, with a jacuzzi tub/ shower, tv, coffee maker and fridge.
First impression is of a lovely rustic setting with comfortable modern conveniences. Rental information on the website indicated smoking permitted outdoors only and towels would be provided for guests. Perhaps the house had not been rented for a while, as the towels were decidedly fusty upon arrival and the supply of fresh towels was consistently inadequate for the 5 guests we booked. We ended up providing extras from our own home. The website for Sensational de Paradisio resort indicates smoking is permitted outdoors only, but the VRBO hosts later messaged us that rental information "clearly" states smoking was not permitted within 3 metres of the buildings. it was a non-smoking resort, with a smoking area a distance away from the house, but there was nowhere identified as such. Although the VRBO hosts observed smoking occurring on the deck, they did not show anyone where they actually allowed smoking. As such we were charged $200 for damages. This seems like an easy money grab. A malfunctioning thermostat made for an uncomfortable night when it could not be adjusted to a lower temp. There is also a cute cabin which sleeps 2 on the site, which we booked ahead for friends on New Year's Eve. Again it appeared not to have been used for sometime as the taps yielded a mass of dusty cobwebs when turned the first time. The hot water only lasted long enough for a good shampoo suds, then an icy rinse had to be endured! This property has wonderful potential, a fenced garden area with beautiful huge outdoor fireplace, and water features. Too bad about the points which merited a negative review.

Owner's Response: Hello, thank you for the review as we appreciate feedback as we always strive for excellence and our customers stay is of the utmost importance to Tonya and myself. After we noticed the smoking we sent you an email advising of the smoking area where we have tables and chairs set up for our guests, we explained the area and showed the young couple who were here, we also advised there is no smoking in or near any buildings as it's a health code issue and all our suites are non smoking as were an Eco friendly resort. The smoking carried on every morning and throughout the day regardless of explaining this to your fellow guests who we're staying in your suite, we regretfully applied the smoking fee after day 5 as we have never had to do this before. The towels are changed every 3 days unless requested by our guests as most guests prefer this rotation to help the environment! We'd like to thank you very much for for staying with us and enjoying a lil part of our island paradise. Mike and Tonya
We stayed at this property with our 3 children, and really enjoyed our time here. Very clean and comfortable. Everything is as described on the website and the owners were very friendly and helpful. A nice change from staying in hotels!

Families with Young Children,
Our location is a reasonable distance from town. There are many nature trails to walk and beautiful scenic roads inland as well as Oceanside. The island offers many days worth of beautiful driving roads or ridding roads for those who prefer two wheels. In the summer swimming and tubbing in lake cawachin is a must do. Salt and fresh water Fishing is also very popular in the area.
There are many different activities and and must see locations, all within two hours of driving
