About stu flinn

Betty and I (Stu) retired about six years ago from a motel in central B.C., after more than 20 years. We missed meeting and visiting with people, so after moving to 'The Island' we decided that a vacation rental would be the answer.

Why stu flinn chose Maple Bay

When we discovered Crofton, we loved it and were convinced that it would be a perfect spot for vacationers wishing to experience this incredibly beautiful part of the world.

What makes this house unique

My greatest pleasure at Sunnyslope is settling down on the front balcony and simply letting the view, the quiet, and the incredible sea-breeze wash over me. It's soothing and uplifting at the same time. The hazard is that I sometimes resent having to return to the real world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is an e-mail from a recent guest. Being a new property, we are thrilled with this response to our on-going efforts to provide a really good vacation experience.



"Hey Stu,



I want to thank you for the rental of your house! Everything was great, and having the park right through the back yard was awesome for the kids. The house was just what we needed, and the location was perfect! You definitely have a beautiful spot in a beautiful town. Very lucky!



I would definitely recommend you and your property to anyone.



Thank-you again and take care!

A great location!

  • 4 of 5
This is our second vacation rental from VRBO. I am always apprehensive of going into a vacation home having not seen it! There was lots of space, the house was clean. There was a very strong musky/old smoke odor throughout the home!!! Just a few things I would have preferred were more towels, bath soap, paper towel and a few more kitchen necessities such as cleaning product. The location was great and so is the price! Bill in the basement was great and very friendly!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Kristina. Renting site-unseen always seems a bit iffy, but owners are pretty unanimous in refunding your money if you sincerely feel that the property doesn't live up to it's billing.
We periodically remove all accrued odours, molds, etc. by use of an ozone generator. Bill, our on-site concierge, will cheerfully address any and all concerns that are brought to his attention.
Sometimes adverse circumstances detract from the enjoyment of a holiday, as your baby's being ill obviously did. I'm sorry.

Great family vacation accommodation!!

  • 4 of 5
This was a great house for a family of 4! Quiet location with a couple playgrounds behind and a lovely view of the ocean. The house had everything we needed and Duncan is only 20 mins away if we needed anything. Bill (caretaker) was very helpful and dealing with Stu (owner) was very pleasant. We will be staying here again next time we are up for vacation. Make sure to check out Raptors on the way to Duncan.

Owner's Response: Your kind words are greatly appreciated. When you return, be sure to check out the great beaches at Parksville, and Qualicum with it's wonderful buildings and boardwalk. I assume you did the totem pole walk in Duncan as well.

June 2014 stay

We rented the house while working in the area. We use the VRBO service a lot as we travel a lot for work. This place is one of the good ones. Clean, comfortable and a Great location. Owners are very friendly and helpful. If you are looking to "get away from it all" this is the spot to do just that. You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Glad we could provide the lovely view of Saltspring Island and the refreshing ocean breeze on the balcony to relax with after your day's work, Dave. Looking forward to your next visit.

Comfortable place for a long-term stay!

We stayed here for a few weeks while visiting family and the place was exactly what we needed. Great location for us, comfortable, and it had lots of amenities (great bathrooms, full kitchen, internet, tv, etc.). The owners are very kind and helpful. It was a nice stay.

exceptional value!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, and 4 kids had the opportunity of renting this beautiful home.We loved the quiet location and the friendliness of everyone we had the pleasure of meeting.Backing right onto a playground was that much more valuable for us with 4 children. The location was perfect for us being in between Victoria and Nanaimo.Had a lot of fun and made alot of memories. Thanks Again!!

Car: recommended

Crofton is a village boasting a truly fine board-walk, beginning just below the museum and following the shore-line. Walk it when the tide's in and when the tide's out. At any time you may meet others enjoying the ambiance as you are. And you are always guarantied a friendly greeting. Even some pleasant and mutually gratifying conversation if you wish. Well worth your time!
