We loved the size and number of rooms in this house. Everyone had their own bathrooms, and bedrooms and even a separate room over the garage for those that needed more quiet with kids! It was nice to have room for the dog and a yard for him to play in.
Unfortunately it was not clean and we were left to clean the fridge, microwave, stove and clear food left in the cupboards that should be available for guests supplies. Not only was the kitchen not cleaned, the overall cleanliness of the floors and cupboards etc. was lacking. This house needs a good top to bottom clean up and new linens are in dire need. There were crumbs and food left in the couch cushions that had been there for a long time. With 2 young children, (one crawling), it was obvious by their clothes to just how dirty the floors were. I felt like we had just walked into a home where the people had just stepped out for a brief moment. I have rented many a VRBO all over the world and plenty here in B.C. and they are usually equivalent to a 4 or 5 Star level of accommodation, not just in the venue but also in cleanliness. It really put a damper on our Thanksgiving family reunion, but we found some cleaners and tidied the kitchen enough to feel comfortable enough to cook the Turkey. (we also had to wash every pot and pan we used and had to put all the cutlery and glasses in the Dishwasher before we used them.) We did call the owners and they explained that they had lost their usual cleaning service and they offered us 100.00 off our bill. They have a gem here for a family rental, but unless they do some updates and really bring this up to a higher standard, sadly, I would not want to stay here again.
The photos really don't do this house justice. It is an incredible piece of property.
Walking in, everything was fresh, clean, tidied, and most importantly - cozy and inviting.
The ceilings go up for miles which makes the space look huge!! The two rooms separated by the fireplace is a great concept, one for watching tv, playing video games, etc., and the other half was for visiting on the most comfortable, luxurious furniture.
The bedrooms were fantastic, big but with a cozy feel, and the structure is wood, so it feels like your very own log cabin.
There was a beautiful fire pit, Internet connection, a spacious kitchen in an open concept room.
The owner was always so quick to reply and answer my questions and concerns.
It was a relaxing, refreshing, Home-away-from-home with its own satisfying character that enabled me to let go of all my upcoming stressors!!
I would go back or recommend this cabin to anyone, in a heartbeat.
Thank you for the wonderful hospitality, and I hope to see you again in the near future.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I will be sure to stay here again the next time I come to Sunshine
This summer we had group trip to Sunshine coast. I am very pleased that I booked Chateau Cedro Rosso. All bedrooms have its own bathroom. This is so important after lake swim or long hiking! We have 7 young girls, they all enjoyed the books and toys Linden store in her home. The house is tastefully decorated. Pine wood walls and super high ceiling make this vacation home very unique. The kitchen is well equipped. The location is also super good as we can explore more lakes and hiking trail around it. Overall, after 4 nights stay the only regret part of this trip is... It's too short! I will definitely book it again and next time I will at least book a whole week:)
Chateau Cedro Rosso is a beautiful home in a beautiful part of the world. It has a great layout and plenty of room for a large group. We were however very disappointed with the overall cleanliness of the home. It is our feeling that when you are renting out accomodation, it should be immaculately clean. Some of our concerns included dirty and ruined dishes and pots, dirty kitchen cupboards, fingerprints on mirrors, dirty carpet and walls, bathrooms that need a more thorough clean. We expressed our concerns to Linden and Joseph and to their credit they tried to make good on this. They offered to come in and clean (we declined as this would have been very disruptive to our vacation), will be refunding our cleaning fee and bought us a bottle of wine. They assured us that that the issues would be addressed for future travellers.
All in all good people with a beautiful home.
We rented this property for 3 nights. There were 8 of us (4 couples) and it worked out really well. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom. Our only suggestions about the property are: (1) supply the correct filters for the coffee maker and (2) provide instructions about which remote controlled the TV and who the cable/satellite provider was.
We golfed on the 2 full days we were there ... both course in the Sechelt area which was about an hours drive away.
We planned on using the kitchen for a dinner or two but ended up going every night to the Grasshopper Pub which was a short drive up to the highway. Some of the group walked there and back but it was a bit of a hike.
Would definitely consider this accommodation again and would also suggest it to friends.
