Cozy Cottage at Maple Bay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Maple Bay the beginning of November. The cottage had everything we needed, and more! The fireplace was wonderful, we had it going all the time, the beds were very comfy, the views were wonderful, the place was very accessible for anyone with mobility issues. Our hosts had the fire going and flowers on the table to greet us. We ordered pizza from Duncan one night and they delivered to the cottage. There is a pub just down the hill, and a nice little restaurant, the Shipyard just a five minute drive at the main Maple Bay marina. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a vacation rental on the water near Duncan!

Charming cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

We visited this spot in August and it was delightful. It was perfect for 4 people and we spent a lot of time on the deck where the view was very beautiful and peaceful. The cottage had everything you need. The pub about a 4 minute walk from the cottage does not have the best food but passable. The restaurant towards birds eye cove is only a 4 minute drive and very good. Pizza will deliver from Duncan. The hosts were excelllent helping us out with an item we needed for a wedding we were attended. Nice of Louis! Great spot for a 2-3 night get away from Victoria .

Peace, beauty and serenity

  • 5 of 5

I am home now and already miss being at the cottage. This peaceful sea side home is a place of refuge if that is what you are looking for. Views from every window, sea lions in the bay, an heron nesting in nearby trees, deer nibbling on grass... coffee on the deck as you watch the sun come up over the mountain tops and wine as you much later watch the Big Dipper rise on a starry starry night. I loved it and will return often. Thanks to my hosts - I did not want for anything. This is a little piece of heaven. Thank you for sharing.
