the perfect cottage for two

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I loved the cottage, its location is great for the places I wanted to visit while on the Island. The owners are very friendly and we greatly appreciated the fact that we could bring our dogs with us. Thank you Kim we will be booking in again in the new year for sure.

Cozy cottage

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our 10 peaceful days on the ocean at a Gartley cottage. It had all the comforts of home at an affordable rate. We loved the beach combing every day and the beautiful sunsets at night. Craig treated us to delicious fresh smoked salmon! Thanks for a relaxing holiday!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5
We booked the cottage when we decided on a spontaneous trip to Vancouver Island. It was a perfect base of operations. Clean, comfortable and very roomy. The owners are quite charming and sitting down by the shore around the firepit, with or without a fire is a little slice of paradise. I can hardly wait to come back next year and stay longer.

Gartley disappointed!

  • 2 of 5
We have rented through VBRO many many times prior to this stay. This review is from a point of view of an experienced traveler and rental property owner.

When we arrived, we felt mislead. The pictures fail to show the 2 story house and a shed blocking all but a sliver of view of the ocean. Access to the beach was through the yard of the newer house. The house was more cabinish with sparse kitchen outfitting lacking a touch. The main bedroom was comfortable but was only accessible through the "second bedroom" which had no door so kid bedtime ended up being super late. The second bedroom has a trundle bed finished with a sleeping bag. There was a moldy smell - I think from the washer as when I opened it I started sneezing or just that it is an old structure. Wifi was down so we were unable to plan the remainder of our trip or figure out if we could go to another place until the second day of our three day stay.

The owners are nice people who were available and present on the property. They were accommodating with firewood and access to the fire pit on the beach side of their home. The kids liked the trampoline. The deck off the back was nice to dine on when it was hot and they have a decent grill which grilled our salmon perfectly!

Disappointed

  • 3 of 5
Disappointing-left over a week earlier than booked.
No Internet or TV for over 3 weeks despite both parties attempts to rectify.
My escape to get a lot of work completed on the net failed.
Not a restful stay.

Owner's Response: Sally,
Sorry that your stay was not as expected, despite all efforts to get the WiFi working it was a failure. We have since had internet hard wired into the cottage so no other guest will ever have to deal with no WiFi in or around the cottage.

A Little Piece of Paradise

Wonderful place! Can't wait to go back year after year! Gartley Cottage is the perfect spot to escape from "too busy & stressful" and enjoy "peaceful & well deserved".

There are beautiful hiking trails and kayaking, swimming and fishing. A farm market is a very short walk up the road. The sea life here is amazing to see and hear. There are a lot of eagles that live in the area.
