Quaint near Quallicum
We were on Vancouver Island for a couple days looking to purchase a retirement home and decide to book a place thru VRBO. The place was clean and cozy, really enjoyed our stay. Carolyn made everything from check in to check out enjoyable. She made sure we had candles in case the power went out with a pending storm which was great for us main landers. I would definitely recommend whole heartly
Thank you so much for the lovely review. Happy house hunting.
Romantic and cozy cottage
Shady Shore at Bowser provided my husband and me with a cozy, romantic and adventurous get away! Our cottage was pretty and quaint! Staff were down-home friendly and helpful with dinner ideas and local spots. We sat on our semi-private patio looking at the constellations with a glass of wine well into the night. The beach was only feet away. Our view of the sun going down from the nearby hot tub was a time of relaxation and awe taking in beautiful nature. We could have kayaked...and BBQd as they were right outside our cottage! I beach combed and came up with very special rocks known only to this area. I recommend it for a cozy get away. We were able to go see historical Hornby Island with its unique post ice age warming huge rocks with 2 picturesque ferry crossings from a nearby dock. Just right for us!
Thankyou for your review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Next time you really need to enjoy that Oceanfront Hot tub.
R & R
We needed time away from a hectic, demanding year to reconnect and relax. We had a perfect September week of weather on the last week of summer. Our favourite moments at the Shady Shores Resort was the beach access, view and sitting by the fire under a Harvest Moon.
The room was clean and affordable. We appreciated the kitchenette and hot tub. Close to Qualicum for shopping or the Horne Lake Caves, Cathedral Grove Easy to cycle to and from these destinations.
Thank you so much for your review. September is a favorite month for me, listening to the loons and the harvest moons ...it's just magical.
We just had a wonderful week at Shady Shores, sunshine every day but one ,the fish ( pink salmon) jumping right in front of the resort , waves of them , my husband got a licence and caught his quoter each day, I loved the view from our two bed unit while I was cooking and eating breakfast dinner,we had fires on the beach in the evening , hot tub and kayaking. Free wi fi .The pub up the road was interesting , this is a great location for visits to Quailcum beach, mount Washington and further north . We enjoyed our chats with Carolyn ,she was most helpful and accommodating and humerus , the units aren't huge , but most suitable , we wouldn't have any qualms staying there in the near future, Carolyn, we never did have that glass of wine , next time ok!
Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple
Wonderful, Relaxed, Away-from-it-all time
We had a wonderful 3 nights at this quite beach front resort! We enjoyed the hot tub every night with the beautiful ocean in the back ground. We got oysters from one of the locations Carolyn told us about and our friend even found a pearl! We visited Cathedral Grove which is only about 30 minutes from this place. The cottage was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Great start to our holiday!
It was wonderful to have met you. The very first pearl in 25 years! What a score. I hope the rest of your vacation was fabulous.
