About Tara & Jamie
We relocated from Saskatchewan to the island just this past summer. We moved for our love of the great outdoors, oceans, forests, wildlife, and yes of course the mild winter climate, which was the last nudge that we needed. We purchased this property with the idea of sharing this beautiful Home and Island experience with others from all over the world. We sincerely hope that you love it as much as we do.
Tara & Jamie purchased this House in 2014

Very comfortable accommodations and beautiful property! My daughters 7 and 8 had so much fun on the trampoline, the rope swing and petting the animals. Thanks Tara and Jamie for sharing your beautiful home with us.
A perfect place for a relaxing vacation.
We found Cedar Hollow to be very charming and comfortable with everything we needed. The property was lovely and made for a very relaxed holiday. It was easy to find our way around and would love to visit again. We also want to thank Jamie for his recommendation on whale watching. We went to Ocean Ecoventure In Cowichan Bay and had a wonderful experience with a captain that was very knowledgeable who made it fun and educational.
Incredible natural beauty of the island is breath taking. You may want to stroll through a number of beautiful communities to visit the plentiful cultural art exhibits. Most communites offer extensive hiking, and biking trails, and numerous water sports attractions, fantastic restaurants, or award winning wineries.
