Quite and comfortable cottage.

The cottage was a great place for a couple to stay and relax away from traffic and others. Close to town and easy to get to anywhere you wanted to go. Nicely furnished with everything you need for an enjoyable stay.

Comfortable cottage for two, quiet location with easy access to shops, restaurants and recreation

  • 5 of 5

Friendly, welcoming hostess offered us a clean, comfortable cottage. Kitchen had every utensil needed despite the small size. Private deck at the back offered a nice place to enjoy the sun. Lots of information about local attractions provided by hostess . Easy access to the Cowichan Valley trail and a short walk to downtown Duncan. Enjoyed a day trip to Saltspring Island. A great place for a couple to stay and explore the surrounding area.

Excellent, just as it is described and more!

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property could not have been more accurate, in fact it was more than we expected. Warm, extremely comfortable, just a home away from home. Beautifully appointed with every amenity possible. Spotlessly clean and the most approachable owner - thank you Felicity for your warmth and kindness.

We loved the Saturday markets, Cowichan Bay is a must to visit. Our main reason for visiting the area was to cycle along the Cowichan Valley Trail to the Kinsol Trestle. We also cycled to Lake Cowichan - an excellent and very well maintained track. Just superb. Our stay was a welcome change from the busyness of the cities.

Really good cottage and people.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this cottage for a week and we have to say it was one of the most enjoyable places that we have stayed in. Easy access to the town centre and quick drives to all that the Island has to offer on the east side. The garden was just lovely to sit out and enjoy an evening meal.
