About Jim & Ruth
Jim & Ruth We purchased this home shortly after we were married and raised our two sons here. Are boys are now 28 and 32 and we have one Grandson who just turned 10 years old. We have always taking pride in a nicely landscaped yard. Jim has experience in construction and has done all the upgrades and additions to the home over the years. Ruth was born in Calgary Alberta and has lived on the Island for over 30 years she owned and operated her own Hairdressing business wile raising her children and then moved on to working outdoors on the waterfront. Jim was born in Chemainus and has lived on the Island all his life he works in the bridge building industry and has been a volunteer Fire Fighter for over 35 years. Our time away from work is spent upgrading and renovating something, our favourite thing to do is fish and spend time with our sons and Grandson .Any time we can get in a game of cards with friends were game.

Jim and Ruth have made this into a very inviting place to stay. They have thought of everything. It was spotlessly clean - a must for me. Comfortable bed. Nice neighbourhood. Ruth even decorated for Christmas with lovely, tasteful decorations. Wouldn't hesistate to stay here again.
Decorating and designing is my passion and I look forward to all the seasons ahead. I am so pleased that Ann appreciated the comfort of our home.
We were in Chemainus to go to the dinner theatre. What a lovely place to spend the night, cook our own breakfast and relax for the morning. The owners kindly gave us a late checkout so we could have a leisurely departure. Beautifully appointed and decorated and so comfortable. Would highly recommend!
Susan was very easy to communicate with we appreciated being notified of there arrival. There appreciation of our home was very apparent as it was Well looked after..
Great place and location!
We had a great stay, the place was very clean and Jim & Ruth have truly thought of everything. Was so nice to have a pet friendly rental as well, they made the pup feel welcome too :)
It was lovely to host Tessa and her group we really appreciate that she took great care of our home And cleaned up after her fuzzy friend.
All you need
A great place to relax or enjoy the surrounding area and the local amenities. The spa bathroom is even better than the pictures. A great place to relax for the gals and there is a large TV for the guys.
You approach the front door through a small garden which entices a person to take some time and reflect on the day.
The spacious back yard is full of treasures of all kinds.
A get away property to return to again and again.
It was a pleasure to host Terry and his family.
Jim and I were invited in for a cup of coffee and it was a pleasure to get to know this couple.
Terry and his family stayed in our home for 10 days and they took care of it like it was there own.
40th Birthday weekend away
This property is just as advertised or even better. Ruth has done a wonderful job making this rental feel like home. I will definitely be back!
Wonderful guests I look forward to having them return.
A delightful and welcoming home
We were two adults and one dog staying for six nights. We really enjoyed our stay here. This home is cozy yet has a light and airy decor. It was extremely clean, with a nice-sized, modern kitchen and a luxurious bathroom, complete with steam shower and soaker tub. There is a giant tv to enjoy watching Netflix, or a DVD player if you like to bring movies, they also have a selection of DVDs to choose from - I don’t think there is cable service, but not sure since we didn’t try to watch regular tv. Wifi connection was good and strong for our devices. There is a very nice private backyard that also has small deck off the back patio doors which is conveniently covered so we could still sit outside even if it was raining.
Info for travelers with a dog: we felt like our dog was very welcome here. The backyard is securely fenced and is a decent size with about half of it being a grassy area. There is also a doggy door you can optionally use for convenient access to the backyard for small/med dogs. They also conveniently provided dog-friendly paw wipes, poop bags and a water bowel, and for little dogs, a cute doggy chair in the living room.
We're glad to have found this place, and would be happy to return next time we're in the area.
We are so pleased to be able to offer a pet friendly accommodation It is customers like these that remind us of the reason we chose to open our pet friendly home. They were very respectful of our house rules and there little fuzzy friend was very well behaved.
