Paradise on Earth!!
Amazing! We had a fantastic time. The place is lovely. You can sip your coffee in the morning watching the eagles, herons and other fauna right at the beach. My husband, my daughter and I enjoyed kayaking, roasting marshmallows in the bonfire, collecting treasures from the beach, and relaxing in the hot tub. There are also many attractions nearby. Carolyn is a great hostess, friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend staying here; we certainly plan to go back!
It was a pleasure to host your family. Please come back anytime. Remember we are only 40 minutes from Mt. Washington if you would like to experience a winter vacation and storm watch from your suite or Oceanfront Hot tub.
Myself and 3 girlfriends stayed at the resort for a birthday retreat / weekend away from the hectic demands of our lives, and all of us agreed that it was one of the most wonderfully relaxing trips we have ever been on.
The suite we stayed in was decorated tastefully, comfortable, fully stocked, and was just the right size for 4 adult women to share for a few days. The view from our front room was unparalleled, and our hosts were welcoming, funny, friendly and made us all feel right at home.
We spent the entire day on the beach walking, checking out cool rocks and shells, watching birds, ooh the birds (eagles, herons, and a myriad of others), and sea lions float by doing nothing but just be - which encouraged us to do the same.
It was a magical experience for all of us, and truthfully we were a little sad to leave, but there is no doubt that we will return for another girls trip in the near future. Thank you so much to Carolyn for allowing us the chance to recharge, rejuvenate and remember what's important in our lives.
Thank you for the lovely review. We truly are blessed to be able to share our little piece of natural paradise with a great group like yourselves. You are more than welcome to come back and ground yourselves in what is important. The sounds of the waves crashing, sea lions barking and seagulls squawking are all free, and remind us of the importance of nature.
Relaxing and fun
We rented a 2 bedroom. The cabins are well appointed, clean and tight for 4 adults. We spent most of the time outside, so this was not a problem. The beach consists of smooth pebbles but there is a great walk to sand. The hostess, Carolyne, was a delight. She had great recommendations for hikes, restaurants and clamming.
It was a pleasure meeting you and your pals. I hope you come and visit us again, I will have a bundle of new suggestions for you to try. If you would like more spacious accommodations, check out our 3000 sq ft. Log Home adjacent the Resort property, at beach log home. We can accommodate up to 14 guests and its fun for the whole family.

Thank you Melissa. It was our pleasure to welcome you and we hope that you can come back soon.
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.
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.
an abundance of clams and oysters on the shore, as well salmon fishing from shoreline. Tide pools with numerous star fish sand dollars and other marine life. Bald eagles, blue herons, seals and otters enjoy feeding along the shoreline. Walking distance to town.Surrounded by 16 golf courses, and an abundance of pristine trails to hike.
