We love family, gardening, cycling, and exploring the world around us. We love to travel, see new places and to meet new people. We look forward to meeting you!
Don and Patsy were gracious hosts, the location is wonderful with beach access very close by and the gardens there are lovely. You have everything you need in the upstairs apartment, very comfortable.
We booked this suite for family members to stay when we hosted our wedding on Gabriola and they enjoyed their stay. Patsy was very friendly and responsive in all our communication.
We had a lovely stay at Don and Patsy's. They were very accommodating to us, allowing us a last-minute later check-in due to a missed ferry. The place was exactly what we were looking for, a quiet retreat with all the amenities. It was a great home base to explore the island from. We would definitely return!
Patsy and Don were wonderful hosts! My son and I were welcomed, and very well accommodated. The place was neat and homey. We appreciated all of the toys and little touches to make the stay kid friendly. Don and Patsy's property is beautiful. My son loved being able to see the ferry boats go by from the kitchen and living room. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
The quiet, cozy location, felt very private and welcoming. The property was charming with a view of the water. I would stay again if I could, especially because Don and Patsy were so welcoming and accommodating.
We highly recommend staying at Don and Patsi's lovely apartment above their home. It is exceptionally clean, very private and spacious, and the kitchen is well equipped for vacation-style cooking. The yard is beautiful and serene, and the view of the Salish Sea with the ferries sliding past is mesmerizing. Don and Patsi were very gracious and helpful, but not intrusive. Excellent place to call home for a few days!
Patsy and Don made me welcome in their lovely home and garden.. The suite above their home is bright, spacious, clean and comfortable. I was visiting the island on my own but can see that the place would be ideal for a couple or family. It is a short walk to several community parks with beach access. Highly recommended.
Don and Patsy were great! We didn't get a chance to visit but they were very welcoming.
The apartment and gardens were beautiful. There is a view of the ocean that is wonderful to wake up to. The apartment itself was very clean, cute and much bigger than I had imagined. The pictures do not do it justice.
I would highly recommend this apartment for families or couples.
Don and Patsy were the consumate hosts. They communicated very well before and during our stay. The suite was everything we needed for two adults and my two young children. They had everything we could possibly want in an accommodation. They even had some toys our two year old fell in love with! The suit is quite, the grounds are beautiful and everything is located very conveniently to beaches and amenities. I couldn't recommend Don or Patsy and their place more!
This has to be one of my favorite Airbnb experiences. Don & Patsy are very accommodating & gracious hosts & just 2 of the nicest people you will ever meet. The accommodation is spacious, clean & has a separate entrance. The dining room window does have a lovely view of the ocean & mountains but my favorite part of the place was the beautiful garden with the hammock! If I lived on Vancouver Island I probably would stay at Don & Patsy's place almost every weekend for relaxation therapy!!
A pleasure to have as guests!!
Wonderful guests! They are hosts themselves so they know exactly how to be exceptional guests. Very nice couple, left my place pristine - even took out the trash! Couldn't have asked for better. I would welcome them back anytime!
The perfect couple...easy to please..my kitchen was never so clean..Thank you for staying with me...Marcia
This suite has a lovely island feel, airy and bright. From the ocean view room you can hear the waves (especially in winter), and there are two nice beaches within walking distance. There is another sandy beach a quick drive away. The garden is amazing for children and for relaxing. Most of my family vacations are to the island, and we love staying in this suite.
