Oceanside Penthouse was perfect. The location, setting, and everything Iris had provided were all exceptional. Simply beautiful.
We absolutely loved it all.
Iris was a delightful, hospitable host. So warm and welcoming. The penthouse was amazing—even better than we imagined, especially considering the reasonable price we payed. The whole experience was perfect.
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Iris' Oceanside Penthouse. All necessities were thoughtfully provided, plus lovely extras (like powerful binoculars, tea candles and lighter, robes, barbecue and picnic supplies...) which created a feeling of luxury and comfort. It was so relaxing following the tides and exploring the rocks at low tide just in front. Checkin was easy, with Iris available by landline or internet to answer questions. The only negative was that we had to leave.
Oceanside Penthouse is a beautiful, restful place to stay. Iris has made sure that all conveniences are present to ensure that you have a wonderful visit. We will be returning for sure. Thank you Iris.
Had a great relaxing getaway at iris paradise on the island. She had absolutely everything that we needed, all we needed to do was bring ourselves. An awesome fully equipped kitchen and an amazing view of the ocean. It's definitely the best unit out of the entire place, unconstructed views of the ocean and the pleasant sounds of water at night.
If you are looking for a comfortable get away in a peaceful location, this is the place for you. This condo is located in a corner spot that provides sweeping ocean views on two sides of the condo, including in one of the bedrooms. The condo is very comfortable and provides everything that one could need including towels, candles, and staple cooking items like spices, flour and a plethora of cooking tools. There is even a cookbook written by the very helpful host, Iris.
My two friends and I had a lovely time at the condo sitting in the hottub, going for beach walks and making a delicious new years eve meal in the well stocked kitchen. I look forward to returning soon.
My boyfriend and I went to Iris' place up in Ladysmith so we could host a Thanksgiving dinner for his family. This house has a very tranquil location with most of the amenities one would need in a kitchen. And while the view from the master bedroom is gorgeous, be sure to close the blinds before hitting the hay as the early morning sun is relentless! Also, while I'm sure there are many things you could find to keep you busy, take note that the loveseat couch/chairs provided don't make for the coziest time when watching a movie.
And while we never got to meet Iris, she was a very communicative host and had a quick response time.
The sun rises in all it's glory over the ocean and, yes, it gets mighty bright if you don't shut the black out blinds before bed, but I highly recommend you experience an Inn Of The Sea sunrise on at least one of your mornings here. Breathtaking beauty! The high end leather loveseat is extremely comfy, or we wouldn't have it there. Our condo is best suited to one or two couples. We supply about 30 top movies and Netflix so it's no hardship at all to cozy up with the fireplace on, and watch some great movies.
We read many of the fantastic reviews for the Oceanside Penthouse, 5 Star Beauty before we booked but I don't think any of the descriptions matched how amazing Iris's place really is... The ideal location on a quiet cove overlooking the Salish Sea, coupled with such a perfectly appointed lodging, added up to a feeling of homecoming that pervaded our entire visit. Iris could not have been a more thoughtful and gracious host. Every word of advise she offered made our visit more enjoyable and memorable -her kind communication truly made me feel like I was conversing with an old friend. The only downside to our wonderful stay was that it had to come to an end! Thank you Iris (and Airbnb), for such a great experience!
Tranquil location with stunning views and abundant wildlife including seals, otters,eagles,osprey and deer. Fabulous condo with every possible convenience. Ideal place to just hang out and chill, or as a base for exploring the island.
We already knew Iris was the perfect host as we had stayed at her place on Victoria Drive two weeks previously. Lots of useful information provided and she always responded to any communications promptly. We hope to return to Canada one day to enjoy her hospitality again!
This condo was gorgeous with a fantastic view, steps away from the water and a rock beach. My husband and I spent 5 days there for our honeymoon and we were both very happy with it. The kitchen was open and well equipped - we cooked a lot and it had everything we needed. Even doing the dishes was kinda enjoyable because the kitchen faces the water and we used the dishwasher. :) It was obvious that Iris is a considerate owner because there were many pleasant discoveries in the detail, such as the heated bathroom floor, access to Apple TV, the collection of boardgames, condiments and spices, supplementary toiletries, and even extra jackets and swimsuits for the guests! It is also a nice region to explore with easily accessible trails and beautiful beaches. The only small inconvenience was there was no cell phone coverage, but with wi-fi we were okay. We would definitely go back if the opportunity arises.
