“Quiet, beautiful, simply paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2011

My girlfriend and I had a respite of a couple of days at this wonderful resort. We arrived in early afternoon to find a note on our cabin door saying to make ourselves at home, door unlocked and key in lock. We walked into this cozy cabin with the most wonderful view of the Juan de Fuca straight. The cabin was so clean and everything that we needed was there in the kitchen. The bedrooms had thick down covers and the beds were so comfortable. We had an upstairs with a queen bed which was also comfortable and inviting. The view from the sitting rooms was magnificient. I slept with the window open upstairs and I could hear the surf of the ocean. We never saw another person except the owner once and he was helpful in answering our questions. The grounds are very well organised and lots of beaches close by. You can even buy fresh eggs, on the honour system no less, from a nearby farm. I will return to this wonderful resort. It really is paradise on earth and so peaceful. It's a stay to remember and I thank June & Ron.

Orveas Bay Resort is the perfect place for a quiet getaway. We stayed in the Starboard cabin for three days to relax and do reading since I was having some knee problems. It was just what we were looking for. Lots of places to sit and look at the view, beautiful flowers, cute tchotchkes - the hosts definitely put a lot of care into this place. And I didn't mind at all making breakfast - they provide supplies and we supplemented with some eggs of our own. If you're looking for a getaway cabin with charm and privacy, Orveas Bay is the place for you.

Orveas Bay Resort is a real gem. It sits on a cliff top overlooking the bay which separates Vancouver Island from Washington state. Morning and evening it provides bewitching views across the water and (mist permitting) the Olympic mountains on the other side.
Each of the four guest homes (and they really are homes) is beautifully appointed and completely private. This is a place for a retreat, a romantic break and complete relaxation. Every comfort is provided for and our property, the First Mate's cabin had so many lovely touches, it was a constant delight just discovering them.
The kitchen was stocked with basic supplies, so it is best to shop before leaving Victoria or at a hypermarket en route. In the evenings, we were happy to cater lightly for ourselves and having enjoyed the sun setting, just stay in and watch a movie or read. Great way to balance a few busy days in Vancouver or the Rockies.
Ron Williams, our very courteous host greeted us warmly on arrival and then left us alone. He and his wife, June are not all over you as some well intentioned hosts can be. They recognise that what they have to offer is the gift of total privacy and they don't intrude on it.
We would love to return to Orveas Bay Resort. We will always treasure our memories of staying there and enjoying the beauty and calm tranquility of the southern shore of Vancouver Island.

I cannot say enough about how marvelous this gem of a property is! The beach house has such a different atmosphere than a hotel - many homey touches, perfectly spotless, reading materials galore, well-stocked breakfast amenities, super comfy beds, marvelous tubs, hammocks, fresh flowers from the gardens, use of the hot tub, and the views go on forever! A bit challenging to get down to the beach but my 70 year old mother-in-law managed it at a careful pace, so don`t hesitate to enjoy that part of the property! We spent 4 nights there and could have easily doubled that as there is a lot to do in the area - CHina Beach and Adrenaline Ziplining highly recommended. Don`t hesitate to book this magnificent place if you want an unmatched experience!

my girlfriend & I enjoyed a great weekend stay here. We stayed in the first mates' house. Great view of the ocean. The cabin had everything you need for a relaxing comfortable stay. All the "little" touches thruout the cabin really made you feel right at home. The owners are a warm & friendly couple. 2 thumbs up. Great for a couple or couples or family. Our cabin could easily sleep 5-6. Fireplace, hammock, stocked kitchen, who could asks for more? I highly recommend this resort. Iran mcclendon from houston,tx.
