Christmas Vacation - 1st VRBO experience
Submitted: February 5, 2013
Stayed: December 2012
Location - Great ... walking distance (with dogs) to Rathtrevor Beach , quick in & out for highway access, not "busy" in and around unit.
Cottage description was totally accurate - completely stocked kitchen - down to spice rack ! Set-up was great - bedrooms, living & dining areas and bathroom all clean, comfortable and well-stocked (linens, etc). Amazing to have washer & dryer on site
Pleasantly surprised at reasonable rate over "busy" Christmas period - having worked in hotels, usually rates spike over Christmas & New Years.
Communication before, during and after was good - expectations were clearly laid out.
Was above & beyond our expectation ..little details that were unexpected: Christmas Tree, welcome package and treats for both us and our dog !, selection of movies, games and for summer guests beach chairs/toys and towels.
We took a couple cards and have recommended this as an option for friends who may be looking for rental options on Vancouver Island.
Sadly with family and visiting we "underutilized" a lot of the options ... even to watch a couple movies, rad a book or use the pool !
Woudl definitely recommend this cottage for a "quiet" getaway of any type ! We'll have to try it again.
Owner's Response: We are so happy you had an enjoyable stay and look forward to seeing you again - all returning guests receive a 10% discount. Thank you for giving us a review and for passing our cards on to your friends!
