Amazing oceanfront vacation home

  • 5 of 5
Nola and Brad were such kind and gracious hosts who ensured that our week long stay at their lovely oceanside home was comfortable and relaxing. Their house was clean and well-stocked, and had many amenities, including a hot tub, kayaks, and a fire pit. The photos posted on this site give you but a glimpse of the beauty of their gorgeous property. We spent many hours in the sun room just watching the waves rolling in and out - We could never tire of that amazing view. There was also so much to see and do in and around the area. We particularly enjoyed taking in the majesty of Cathedral Grove, the peaceful atmosphere of the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre, the beauty of Butterfly World & Gardens, and all the happenings at the Mooberry Winery & Little Qualicum Cheeseworks. Literally right across the highway from the house is Island Scallops, which had the best fresh scallops we'd ever tasted. There are also some amazing artisans in the area whose studios were a pleasure to visit - Among our favourites were Cedar Moon Glass Art Studio & Gallery and Robert Held Art Glass. Although not as close by, but certainly worth the trip, was the little excursion we took out near Duncan to visit Pacific Northwest Raptors, an amazing facility that we always make a point of visiting whenever we come to the island.
Thank you, Nola and Brad, for sharing your beautiful home with us and for making our vacation so enjoyable!

Owner's Response: Wow! You folks really saw a lot of our island in a week, that is fantastic! You visited many of our favourites and one we had not heard of, so we will check out Northwest Raptors as soon as we can. You were such enthusiastic guests, and left our home spotless, thank you very much. Please come again, we would love to see you again.

Great Vacation Site

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Brad and Nola's house.
Everything was available and easy to use.
Hot tub and sunroom were awesome and so were Brad and Nola.
Would reccomend this to everyone.Lots to see and do in the area.
Only drawback for me was walking on the beach I found it a little too rocky for me, other .then that everything was great.
Again thanks Brad and Nola for sharing your house with us.

A super family (12 of us) mini holiday was had by all.

  • 4 of 5
A very pleasant surprise to find this property just as described and as pictured.
The house and cabin were clean, comfortable and very well stocked with everything you could possibly want.
Several of our party said "wow" when they saw the view from the house.
Nola and Brad could not have been more pleasant and helpful.
Would not hesitate to recommend.
The family enjoyed Horne Lake caves and the quaint town of Qualicum Beach.

Lovely secluded getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our multi-generation group spanned ages 19 to 77. The property was spacious enough to allow the 7 of us to have privacy while still providing lots of areas to gather. We loved watching the seals and herons, and spent many hours playing games while enjoying the beautiful view. Horne Lake caves, trips to Rathtrevor and Qualicum beaches, Englishman Falls and local mini golf courses were among our favorite outings.

An ideal family holiday

  • 4 of 5
Nora and Brad are wonderful hosts. Our family celebrated my parents 50th wedding there, and I couldn't have imagined a better setting. It was very comfortable and spacious for the nine of us. The adults slept in the house and the kids in the cabin, which was ideal for everyone! No one grew tired of the view or the entertainment provided by the sea life. The lawn chairs, firepit, kayaks, hula-hoops, hot tub was fun everyone. The short drive to Carhedral Grove and seeing the 800 year old trees was a highlight for all, as well as swimming in Cameron Lake, seeing the world class sand sculptures, and visiting other nearby beaches. The area offers so much for so many; I'm certain we'll be back!

Owner's Response: 50 Year Anniversary! what a wonderful milestone to celebrate together! July has been a spectacular sunny month, so perfect to spend days sight seeing our beautiful area of the island. We were so glad to hear you enjoyed the property, and its amenities. Cathedral Grove is one of our favourites too! Incredible feeling walking thru that ancient forest, very serene. Your dads comment that it was "very hard to leave this home" really warmed our heart. Thank you for choosing our little piece of paradise, please come again!

Excellent place for all year round

  • 5 of 5
My family and friends depended completely on the reviews on this website, and when we arrived, the place was beyond expectation. The house looked exactly as shown on the pictures, or even better. It rained for two days in a row while we were there, but the view and the sound of the water waves was so beautiful the grownups didn't mind enjoying the ocean from the sun room most of our time. When it wasn't raining too much, the kids loved playing at the backyard which opens up to the water front. The sand area and two kayaks were bonus!
Also, Nola was very kind and happily answered all our questions. We were all very satisfied with the place and can't wait to go back!
