Martyn greeted my girlfriend and I when we got in late. He quickly showed us around and gave us some nice suggestions on things to do. The property is very beautiful and relaxing. I was there with my 18 month old daughter, it was very safe and clean. Lots of things to keep us busy! The trails behind the property were GREAT to walk on. No crazy hills, made it very enjoyable for my child! Thanks a lot!

We had an enjoyable stay at Martyn & Marilyn's home. We were able to ride our bikes from the house and access the Trans Canada Trail just 0.5 miles down West Shawnigan Lake road road at the point across from Butler Road. We enjoyed a couple days of biking over the spectacular Kinsol Trestle and other parts of the Trail. Martyn & Marilyn responded graciously to our requests and made us feel welcome. Their home is in a beautiful setting near Shawnigan Lake. We visited the Shawnigan Lake Museum and enjoyed the artifacts of history, along with a small art gallery of the local artist E. J. Hughes. We were very comfortable in their home. We would recommend staying here if you want to enjoy the Shawnigan Lake area.

We stayed here with another couple, it was a great indoor and outdoor space. It was a 2 bedroom and 1 bathroom basement walkout, with Martyn and his wife living on the main floor. Martyn replied promptly to my msgs, and gave us lots of privacy the throughout our stay which was preferred. He was very willing to answer any questions we had about the area. The house seemed a little off the beaten path, but was close to where we needed to be. The kitchen was equipped with dinnerware, dish soap, garbage bags, spices, toaster, coffee, coffee maker, etc so the only thing we had to buy was food. The four of us had a great time here!
