We rented this home for a family get-away, four brothers got together for a four day weekend and enjoyed golf at Storey Creek, salmon fishing, some great BBQ's and a day trip up to Mount Washington.Thank You again Donna & Joe for the use of your beautiful home, we enjoyed our stay very much and found the home to be not only very comfortable, luxurious, and a great location, but also very well kept and equipped. We hope to do it again.

Kindest Regards
Carey

The Home by the Sea proved a great venue for our small family gathering. The house is incredibly spacious, with ample room for our group of 10. All of the interior furnishings, fixtures, and conveniences were high quality, making the house very comfortable. The owners also provided kayaks, bikes, and other outdoor amenities. It's located in a quaint, beach resort-like area, with miles of beachfront just across the road. A basic (and cheap) 9 hole golf course is within walking distance, as is the Oyster River, which provided all sorts of swimming, hiking, and fishing fun for the kids. Great location; great house; highly recommended.
Owner's Response: Thank-you! Your comments are greatly appreciated :)

Perfect holiday home, wonderful staff

We have just spent 3 weeks staying in the fantastic holiday home. We travelled over from Scotland to enjoy some salmon fishing, the house was amazing, equipped with everything we expected and more! Marnie the housekeeper, was wonderful and made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived. The booking process was easy and would recommend this accommodation to families or groups of friends wanting a more relaxed holiday and the ease of self catering.

Thanks to Donna and Joe, Marnie and Kevin for all your help during our stay - we had a fabulous stay and are looking to return in 2014.

The Scottish salmon fishers!!
Owner's Response: Thanks guys! So glad you enjoyed yourselves and glad you are coming back next year.

We stayed in that house from Oct 5 till Oct 8th and had a wonderful time.
This was the best house ever we rented for a long weekend. All rooms with TV and everything so clean and brand new.
We highly recommend this house and we want to go back there for sure.

AMAZING VACATION RENTAL HOME!

We booked the vacation rental property just as it had become available as a new rental. The property description is very accurate, there is so much more! The property looks even better than the photos and property has been completed to a very high standard with all the comforts you could wish for. Immaculate and very well presented.

The location was perfect for our family of six. Three minute walk to beach, convenient local shops and only a 20 minute drive to Campbell River. Walks available from door. The owners were extremely welcoming and made us feel special we even had a seafood bbq made for us and had a lovely evening with all. We stayed for 8 nights and would have loved to have stayed longer!

Would definitely recommend this property to anyone, our teenagers particularly loved 'the den' where they could spend time away from parents in the cinema room and having their own bar/kitchen area..

We enjoyed being able to walk to Oyster River directly from the house, the walks on the beach, watching the sunset/sunrise. Campbell River is a lovely town, icecream on the pier. We visited a lovely craft market where we all managed to buy gifts and treat ourselves. Saratoga Speedway is worth a visit, we attended a race night this was a first for all of us and we had a fun evening. The boys returned to have a race in the go-carts whilst the girls went for a round of crazy golf and icecream! We all enjoyed an excellent meal at 'Salmon Point' , sat outside with beautiful views.

As visitors from the UK this was our first visit to Canada and we loved it. We spent 3 weeks and stayed in various properties, Home by the Sea is a very special place and we could not speak more highly of it. Thanks for an amazing stay.
Owner's Response: Thanks Carol! We really loved meeting you and your perfectly delightful,beautiful family.Wow! You guys were the best first guests ever!! Thanks for all your support and encouragement. :)
