My husband and I have just enjoyed a couple of days in the First Mates Cottage. The attention to detail is amazing. I really tried to think of anything missing but failed! There is plenty of tea, coffee, juice, milk, cereals and condiments. Even maple syrup, salad dressing etc. The owners have eclectic tastes and the decor and furnishings are...

Thanks Lottie..so nice to hear our guests enjoy the amenities offered... we try to maintain and add little touches as returning guests always notice and comment .. and we always bring home some little treasure from our travels to add to the house and cottages.. Good for you to take the stairs to the beach.. well worth the climb to...

Orveas Bay Resort is absolutely amazing, the location is gorgeous. We stayed in the Captain's Quarters, which is overlooking the Juan De Fuca strait, and is a hop, skip, and jump from the hot tub. Our hosts, Rob and June have thought of everything. Board games, tons of books and magazines to read, beautiful soaker tub, with separate bathroom area....

Thank you for your kind words.. yes, it has been a very strange winter, we don't often get snow so it was a bit of surprise... funnily enough it did not deter guests from coming! All of the units have either a gas fireplace or wood burning so nice to have a cozy place to curl up and chase away...

We spent 2 wonderful days in the Starboard cottage. Beautifully furnished, the kitchen has everything you could possibly want in a kitchen. Looking forward to going back. This is our new favorite getaway!

My husband and I found this spot online and stayed here for our 1st anniversary in 2015. It was lovely. We planned on coming back at the beginning of October 2016 for our 2nd anniversary. Then an unexpected death in the family occurred. I emailed the owners approx. 2-3 weeks ahead of our scheduled date(s) for a refund of our...

When we read this review our first response was to contact Trip Advisor and ask them to please remove this review from our web page as it is not only unfair but the writer has resorted to name calling and making derogatory character judgement . The response was that the review committee felt it fell within their guide lines and...

We recently spent 2 nights in Starboard Cottage while in Canada on our honeymoon. I wish we could have stayed longer! The cottage was absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean and the kitchen was so well equipped!!! Spent a few very enjoyable hours in the hot tub and explored the rugged west coast.... China beach is beautiful as advised by Ron. Many...
