“Charming and cozy island retreat”
Reviewed 10 October 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This suite is a beautiful retreat from the city located minutes away from Tunstall Bay on Bowen Island. It has been recently renovated and you can tell that a lot of love has been put into the place. The kitchen is particularly stunning, and has lots of for cooking and serving food. I hope to come back during my next trip to Bowen!

“This place is great!”
Reviewed 23 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Finding a place on Bowen seem at first to be challenging due to the surprising many options available. Julie was one of the few that responded to my inquiries right away and in a friendly manner. Well priced, clean, very close to the beach! Explosive creek blew us away with how amazing the furniture and place in general was. She makes the place comfortable but also stylish. She has delightful coffee and salt baths for the japanese style tub which is actually very comfortable.
Over all we give this place two super highfives! and Julie as well :)

“Beautiful house and setting with a very relaxing and laid back ambience.”
Reviewed 11 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My second stay. Very pleasant indeed. Enjoyed the house (beautiful woodwork) and the garden and view. , Very quiet area, with nice walking nearby (lots of hills). The hostess prepared and excellent breakfast, with especially tasty pastries and breads.
Hoping to go back again.

“One of a Kind B & B”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

When we need to get away from all the hustle and bustle in our lives. The Explosive creek B & B is filled with gorgeous outdoor scenery. Waking up to the sound of mother nature. We love the trails and beaches, which are approx. 5 minutes walking distance. One of the neatest feature's is the fire pit. Where we love to roast marshmallows and enjoy the crackle of the fire. Explosive creek B & B, really is a one of a kind B & B experience. The inside contains a beautiful fireplace, very spacious and state of the art rooms. We always feel so welcome and our friend's cannot wait to stay at the Explosive creek B & B. Thank you for providing us our sanctuary on Bowen Island. Anyone would be thrilled to stay at the Explosive creek B & B.
