La maison était très propre et bien située (à quelques minutes de route de la plage et des restaurants, épiceries et autres commerces). La cuisine était très bien équipée et un BBQ était disponible sur la terrasse. Le quartier est très tranquille. Avec ces 3 chambres, cette maison bien équipée est parfaite pour une famille en vacances. La chambre pour enfants était accueillante et Glen a même laissé deux petites friandises sur la table de la cuisine pour nos 2 garçons. Quelle belle attention! L'hôte a répondu rapidement à tous nos courriels et a pu nous renseigner d'avance sur la maison et le secteur. Il y a aussi un cartable dans le salon avec des cartes et des dépliants sur les activités et sites touristiques de la région. Cela nous fut très utile. Nous sommes très heureux de notre séjour à Wasaga Beach et de la maison louée. Merci !
Glenn was a fantastic host! His property was clean and comfortable. he was also nice enough to leave us information on things to do in the area as well as an information package on the cottage. This was very useful. I found the beds comfortable and the rooms were set up for a family environment. We loved being able to have a fire in the back yard and being able to be in a quiet relaxing area. All in all a positive experience! Thanks Glenn
The cottage is very comfortable and conveniently located. We were new to the Georgian Bay, and were very happy with the different activities the area offers (on top of the great beach): there was everything we could want for a family with young kids.
Finally, I feel I need to thanks Glenn again, as he was a perfect host: the cottage was welcoming, he was always available and have us great tips and advices.
Overall, a great experience and fantastic vacations.
About the Host, Glenn
We are both seniors living in Canada. Somehow we don`t feel our age (yet) and love travelling. We look forward to doing and seeing all the touristy things when we holiday but love to go to clubs to listen to Jazz, Blues etc. as well as exploring the off beat areas to find the real soul of the place that we are in.
We are very respectful of the customs, homes and people that we meet on our journeys.
