      Short getaway

      The property is gorgeous with beautiful bay views. My mom and I stayed 3 nights. The beds are comfortable and everything is very clean. Elaine , the owner is wonderful, and makes an amazing breakfast. It was a treat! Muffins, biscuits,bread, souffle, baked apple and the fruits were fresh and tasty. I loved the animals on the property, sweet and friendly. I'm definitely going to miss it. We look forward to returning!

        Absolutely beautiful

        We had an amazing vacation here! Everything was evenn so much more beautiful in person! Our host was lovely and she spoiled us with a wonderful breakfast each morning! We loved Larry her dog who was well mannered and greeted us each morning and every coming and going.. The goats and cats were adorable and friendly (all pets were outdoor pets). We were centrally located with a variety of local beaches, wineries, whale watching out of Nanaimo, and beauty all around. I would STRONGLY recommend this place to anyone!

        5/5 Excellent

          Awesome! Quiet little getaway. The kayaks were a great bonus on a beautiful bay. Loved the setting.

          Easy, smooth, simple, great communication.

            Fabulous Girlfriend Getaway!

            Elaine made us feel right at home from the get go. Larry, her beautiful golden retriever, made the perfect greeter. Delicious breakfasts, serene setting overlooking the water and so close to Coombs market and other attractions. All three of us really enjoyed our stay. Thank you Elaine and Larry!

              Beautiful spot, spa like B&B

              We had an extremely positive visit to this B&B. It’s an absolutely beautiful spot and very secluded. The Bed and Breakfast is very well maintained and luxurious. Elaine made a delicious breakfast. Well worth a visit, would recommend.
