The lush natural surroundings appeal to nature enthusiasts providing boundless opportunities to explore, from world class underwater diving and fishing to sailing and hiking or floating down the famous Cowichan river. There is no shortage of wildlife either, with Eagles and deer literally out your door. Come check out Vancouver Island!

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 :)
I had a lovely time in this cute suite. It was pretty and spotless. It had all the basics you need in the kitchen plus more! Avril went above and beyond to leave some delicious baked treats too. The ocean view from the window is wonderful and there is an amazing plum tree right by your front door which was a delicious surprise. You are only a few int drive to town or the beach. A comfortable and friendly place to call home for a few days. Thank you Avril!
This cabin worked great for my wife and I. The view was worth the trip. We are already planning our next trip to Chemainus.
This was our home from home. Very clean and welcoming with a terrific view of the sound, and stars at night. We had a very private stay and Avril is a terriffic host. The week was too short!
Avril was there to welcome us and ensure our comfort.. Destination is easy to find with off street parking.
The reservation was canceled 31 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
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!!!

Ps ... best of everything to you both! Cheers Avril :)
