Peter's preparation of fresh homemade linguini "southern Italian" style was a real treat! His selection of seafood was perfect for our stay. The mussels were dangerously delicious! Yum. The hot tub was a nice bonus, too. If you are in the highlands and need a place to stay a little off the beaten path or are looking to have world class cuisine, this is the spot for you.
Peter went out of his way to make our stay memorable. We loved the hot tub and a tasty 5 course meal. To give an idea of cost Peter added up the cost of the total ingredients (for myself and my partner plus Peter and his wife), plus a fee for his preparation time. Peter got us involved in cooking and was keen to show us how he was making the courses. We enjoyed the company of Peter's wife Janice who is an outdoor enthusiast, and shared useful info about the Grand Canyon and inspired us with her adventures. We would recommend you need a car to stay here!
That was a great stay! The place is awesome, the room is nice and clean, the living area comfy and the hot tub perfect for relaxing after a long day out. We had very good conservations, tasted some good beer from Victoria and watched some great movie. Definately can recommondate staying here!
Peter and Janice were great and hospitable! The food was delicious and accommodations comfortable and exactly as expected. Victoria is lovely. Thanks, Peter!
We had booked one night and stayed three nights! We had many discussions with Peter before we arrived and we were very well received. Peter and Janice were very friendly and helpful and very interesting. They advised us to go to PortRenfrew to see Botanical Bay and the beaches along the road and it was a good experience. We met a couple of friends of them, very nice and we were able to share a piece of cake with them. They were really great, they took great care of us and we thank them. It is recommended that warm welcome and we hope to see in France!
Great stay with Peter & Janice who were extremely accomodating from the excellent communication, help to get there ( picking us up and dropping us off:)), happily lending us bikes, providing info on what to do/where to go and having the lovely hot tub to finish the day under the shooting stars. This mountain retreat experience, our first with air bandb could not have been better. Thank you so much.
Peter and Janice were amazing hosts. We requested a vegan dinner when we arrived and sat down to five exceptional courses of culinary magic. Started with a salad and exquisite hummus and flatbread on the deck, and had deer wander within feet of us while we ate on their quiet wooded back yard patio. When it got dark, we finished the rest of the courses inside -- vegan ceviche, blissful cauliflower roti, perfectly simmered and seasoned ragout. We finished with freshly made homemade sorbets.
Conversation over that time was great and lively and our hosts very knowledgable about Victoria (as well as food!). They knew how to get around town and had great suggestions for what to see as we were first time visitors. The house was very clean, comfortable, homey and inviting - they put out a great spread with comfortable beds, huge towels and homemade soaps.
Amazing. We'll be back for sure.
