Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for your review , as explained we were on the road for this booking and not always available .We did phone on the guests arrival and carried on a walk through of the property. Our agreement includes explanation of deposits and cleaning and each guest is encouraged to review and ask questions, 80 % of the deposit was returned immediately .The hold back was less than the extra cost of cleaning, to be reviewed on our return and after a meeting with the cleaner. We chose not to rent again until we could be home for that. The meeting was done today and the cleaner stands by the timing needed. As well it is always necessary for the owner to know how many people are staying in the unit for insurance liability issues.Communication on each side could have been better and we will work on that in the future. We all learn from our life experiences.

Great place to stay for a weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable time. The home is very very comfortable to 'hang out' in, and has a beautiful view of the ocean which is mesmerizing. So many windows and great views all around. AnnDee made it very easy to get settled and gave us many little tips from where to go for a run, to where to catch a good meal when we missed our ferry! (I would recommend reserving a ferry spot if you want to ensure you get on). Will definitely return at the next opportunity.

Fantastic property but poor management turns mini-vacation into big headache

  • 2 of 5

The suite itself lives up to its expectations: it's located beachside, features fantastic water views and is immaculately clean (aside from a soiled sofa) - we loved every minute of our stay here. However, the process before and after our stay has been frustrating, disappointing, and overall, stressful.

We booked our stay and sent through full payment via bank transfer on the Monday the week of our stay. However, we never received confirmation of payment or check-in information until 3 days later, the night before our arrival date. Normally, waiting 3 days isn't a big deal - unless it's the night before your stay and you need to decide whether you should still take the ferry over to the island. At this point, we had reached out to the owner via phone and email several times but received no response. We even had to call VRBO itself to confirm our booking was active and that this was a legitimate owner who hadn't run off with our money.

Post-stay has also been a frustrating experience. Even though the owner wasn't around during our stay, she informed us 3 days after our departure that she would be withholding part of our deposit for the extra "cleaning" that was involved; we left the suite in the same condition we found it and completed more than what was required in her check-out procedures. We were told she would assess upon her return, but 2 weeks later, we haven't heard back. So beware of "extra cleaning" fees that may pop up after your stay.

Wonderful R&R for the entire family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (with a 1.5 and 3 year old) stayed at the Devine's lovely beachside home in June. We were blessed with amazing weather - sunshine and breezes for the entire 5 days we were there. The beachside home is easily accessible from the highway but without the hazards as it faces the ocean. There was no issue with privacy! We arrived late in the afternoon the day we checked in - our hosts were gracious enough to drop off a bottle of wine and a pizza so that we wouldn't have to venture out again that day with our two small children! The top floor that is rented out has a wrap around balcony that is fantastic for all-day play, lounging with a good book, patio dinners, and star gazing in the middle of the night. The suite (with the two bedrooms behind sliding doors) is light and airy, and lovingly decorated as a beachhouse. The one downside is the small kitchen - but it does the job. There's are hotplate, a microwave, a small convec oven. There's even a bbq on the patio for guests' private use. Our hosts were generous in sharing their lovely backyard with the children, who played in their wading pool with their water toys every afternoon. The house is on the beach - and though the beach is very pebbly (bring water shoes!), the views, the aquatic life, and waves are right in front of you. We enjoyed watching a pair of bald eagles soar back and forth across the sky in front of us every day, and the girls especially enjoyed collecting rocks and finding crabs/starfish on our daily walks. All in all this was a perfect week on the west coast! Thank you Anndee for making it so comfortable.

Vacationers Delight!

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of staying here for a lovely 3 months (Oct, Nov, Dec). We loved the very comfortable beds, the light-filled open design and the ever changing sea and sky views 24/7. Loved watching the seals & water birds from the chairs inside or on the deck - as well as the activity of tugs, ships, & sailboats. Enjoyed all the amenities of nearby Sechelt - the community centre facilities, the shopping, natural historical society gatherings, craft fairs,

the playhouse events, the hiking trails. The owners, Ed & Anndee, were very responsive to our every need. We look forward to returning!

A wonderful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The space is bright and beautiful, the view is magnificent, the beach is perfect. BBQ'ing dinners on the deck, daily beach walks, swims in the clearest water and easy drives to town for food/wine. A wonderful place to relax with a family.

Perfect location in Sechelt

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this lovely home and had a wonderful time. The space is very open and bright, and remained cool throughout the day, despite the temperature soaring outside. Being right on the beach, it is the perfect spot for taking a quick dip (or a long soak) in the ocean. Our 6 year old spent hours bobbing in the waves and searching the shore for all sorts of marine life and special rocks. The location is perfect for a family vacation. We thank Anndee for sharing her beautiful home with us!
