My Mother always said that if you are a guest in someone's home - Leave it as you arrived or better! I feel the same :) This is a non-smoking property. Thank you :)

Avril's studio suite is every bit as perfect as pictured. The view absolutely stellar, the furnishings cosy and inviting, the separate bedroom and the bathroom both beautifully appointed.
We were greeted both by Avril's charming daughter and by Avril herself, our requests were dealt with promptly, and the neighborhood was friendly, quiet and safe feeling.
Perfect. Thanks so much for a relaxed, delightful get-away.
Avril was a wonderful host!
She warmly welcomed us when we arrived, answered all our questions and made us feel very much at home.
The accommodations were fantastic. We are extremely picky and Avril's accommodations were beyond our expectations! We're talking clean as a whistle, not a dust spec to be found, full kitchen amenities, clean glasses and kitchen "everything"! There was fresh ground "amazing" dark roast french coffee in the cupboard and what a way to enjoy the amazing ocean view and sunrise in the morning then a fantastic cup of coffee and a the view in comfort!
What was also incredible was that there was very very very fresh plums, jam, milk, cheese, tomatoes and english muffins in the fridge waiting for us, plus some dried snacks on the kitchen table in a nicely presented basket! Wow! Breakfast was awesome!
We had our own driveway for parking, towels looked and smelled unbelievably clean and fresh, all the necessities you could possibly want. The unit is completely yours, your own entrance and it was so peaceful and quiet. We absolutely loved it!
Avril certainly has taken a lot of pride in her accommodations that she offers here on AirBnB, and certainly loves playing host!
Thanks so much Avril!!!
Hey Alanna & Dan, Wow! Thank you so very much for your glowing review! I am so (email hidden)d yes I do love hosting. It has been a really great experience and the people (such as yourselves) have been fantastic! I look forward to the opportunity to host you again. Take care and thanks again! Ps ... best of everything to you both! Cheers Avril :)
We had a wonderful stay in Chemainus, Avril is a wonderful host.
She had lovely strawberry tarts in the fridge to welcome us. Along with yogurt, cheese , and veggies some other breakfast, or lunchtime snack starters. l had great correspondence with Avril, which made me feel like l was writing to a friend l had know for along time. And meeting her in person made me feel the same way. The views were spectacular! And though most of our time was spent at Transfer Park for my son's wedding. We certainly enjoyed the privacy we had staying at Avril's suite. We met some the neighbours who were also very welcoming. We look forward to maybe visiting with Avril again. And we have recommended Avril's lovely suite to our friends and also airbnb for any other holiday experiences. Oh, yes and the lovely gladiolas in the vase was a very elegant touch!
We stayed at Avril's suite in August. It is a lovely suite with a fantastic view of the ocean! Avril is a very hospitable host, it's obvious that she loves what she does! She was very accommodating to us when we had our daughter stay with us! Thanks again for a wonderful experience!
