Just returned from a weekend gal getaway to celebrate in style, our gal pal's 50th birthday. The log home was absolutely perfect for 11 women to enjoy. So much room with a cozy ambience given that the wood stove was pumped with plenty of wood to keep us warm when we arrived. The dining table held us all so that...

Great to have you back. And what a wonderful surprise for your Pal. She's going to be 51 next year, time to set up another get together. I'll try and talk to the sun God for you. Thanks for the nice review

I recently spent a weekend away with my family at Shady Shores. As soon as we pulled in and saw the view of the ocean with dozens of Sea Lions not far from shore we were in love. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit that was very clean and had everything we needed for myself, husband and son. Including...

Me and my best friend spent five days at the beach resort. I was celebrating my birthday in BOWSER! Our stay was very wonderful, relaxing and most all peaceful. Everyone was so friendly. We went to Campbell River to catch some salmon. But my friend Iran only caught one salmon. We came back with one salmon and had a great...

Our stay was very delightful. Being early November the property was quiet. Enjoyed the interaction with Carolyn and Brent. Our cottage was perfect for 2 ladies each with their own bedroom. Kitchen/living room was great with fireplace and stunning view of the ocean. Not many times or places early November you can have your morning coffee in an adirondeck chair...

What a jewel we found, this has everything you could want. My husband, brother-in-law and myself spent 6 days and had the time of our lives. This is so peaceful and just plain eye candy. We were fortunate to have a day when the starfish came in to feed and were able to photograph hundreds of starfish in a multitude...

My wife and I spent four days over our 30th anniversary in one of the two water front cottages. The room is small but had everything we needed and we even fixed a four course seafood meal in the small kitchen area. Room was well maintained, clean and the place is nice and quiet. The owner was a delight, very...

On August 17-20 ,2013, my girlfriend and I decided to take a much needed rest up island. Absolutely nothing in the way of a cabin or cottage retreat on the ocean was available except for 2places at "Shady Shores Resort"in Bowser near Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island. Since we are 2 friends we wanted a room with 2 beds and...

Although it is rare that we come upon those whom will stoop to these levels to obtain free accommodations, it is blatantly clear with terms such as "value village, scum" Where these people are coming from. "you know they're out there you just hope they are not breeding"!!!

We absolutely love the Bowser area and were really excited to stay at the Shady Shores Resort. It's a 'hobby' of ours to stay at Resorts all over Vancouver Island, so we were happy to try somewhere new. The resort was very accommodating of our schedule, and overall the visit was very nice with beautiful scenery. It was too cold...

Recently stayed a night at the Shady Shores Beach Resort, 'Beach Log Cabin'. Overall the property is fairly nice, but its clear the owners have given no attention to detail or the importance of hospitality. Besides signs posted absolutely everywhere telling you what you cannot do, the place has a cold feeling (that may have been from the fact that...

It is unfortunate that we have to list requirements to follow in our home, but it is more unfortunate that there are those whom believe that with their rental they are provided the allowance to disrespect our property. Thus the list has been made, and continues with new additions, as common sense and respect is tested time after time. Some...
