We are originally from the UK and emmigrated to Canada in 1992 where we lived in Alberta for 10 years before moving out to the coast!

                                                                We stayed at John and Sue's place for two nights and had wonderful time. We arrived at our place at 3:30 pm and had little early check in. They also let us do late check in which we greatly appreciate. Sue came to make sure that we are comfortable at our new place and if we need anything. Even though they live next door they did not bother us at all and we had complete privacy to our place. We really enjoyed our first evening using their hot tub overlooking amazing view. Unfortunately whether wasn't that great and it was raining the whole time and we were not able to enjoy their backyard at all. They have nice open place in the back for family to enjoy. John and Sue thanks for letting us stay at your place.

                                                                Thank you Sue and John for a lovely stay! Your cottage was perfect for our family weekend stay. We loved being right on the water and having a beach bonfire. The cottage was fully equipped with everything we needed. It was close to Mount Washington and Comox. The perfect spot to explore the area. We would highly recommend your property. Thank you!

Exactly what we as a family were looking for. Great location for those day trips, and it was perfect for those quiet evenings in the hot tub when our son went to bed. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a peaceful and comfortable stay on the island. And if you love oysters as I do! Location is second to none. Thank you so much John and Sue!

                                                                Unfortunate experience because of the host

                                                                Emily G.

                                                                Unfortunately, our stay at this property was spoiled by the offensive and ineffective way one of the owners handled an otherwise well-managed situation. The property is lovely, great location on the ocean and accessible to Mount Washington. However, when we arrived our first night after a long afternoon of travel, we found the property had no hot water. We did not realized there was no hot water after dinner, when we pieced together the facts that the showers weren't hot, the dishwasher wasn't cleaning the plates, and the kitchen sink wouldn't run hot. At first we thought it was a case of the pipes warming up. When we realized this, a plumber and engineer in our group went to check out the hot water tank and discovered that it was in terrible condition overall - was rusted all over, the water intake was corroded, and needed to be replaced. This would have been obvious for at least a few weeks. We discussed and debated calling the owners, but did not want to wake them (at this point, it was after midnight). We decided to text them.

                                                                The next morning we hadn't received a reply, so I called the owners around 8am and got no answer. One of the owners, John, promptly returned my call, apologized and said he would do his best to get someone in their to fix the water before we returned from a day of skiing. He was very helpful, got someone in who fixed the hot water, and all seemed good.

                                                                However, when we contacted Sue, the other owner, that same afternoon to ask about receiving a partial refund because of the lack of a fundamental service the first night, she was evasive, unhelpful, and rather rude. She asked how old we were (all between 28 and 33, not that it should matter), suggested that we got a good price for the people staying there (we paid exactly what it was listed for on VRBO - it was not particularly cheap for the off-season and we had exactly the suggested number of people staying), and implied that she would wait to "see how we left the place" before she considered providing some sort of refund or apologizing, thereby implying that we were untrustworthy and sloppy guests. (For the record, we left the place in great shape and she admitted this on the phone a week later). She did not apologize for the situation and did not handle it well, which marred the way John

                                                                had handled it so effectively at the start. Shame. Great place but I would never stay here again.

                                                                Dear Emily, I am so pleased that you enjoyed the house and great location. You notified us of the hot water tank failing at 8:00am and we were very pleased that we managed to get a plumber to replace the tank and have hot water again by 10:30am (2.5 hours later). We are very sorry you do not feel this was good enough. For the record, the property could have been left in better shape.

                                                                Kind regards,
