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...

WOW! What an experience. My partner and I travel a lot and have stayed in a number of different boutique style hotels/vacation homes and this is by far the best place we have ever stayed at. The amount of thought and care that goes into this place is incredible. We planned to only stay Friday night after doing the Coast...

There is everything you could need here, with cooking utensils, barbecue, hot tub, hammock, toaster oven, microwave, hot plate, wonderfully comfy bed, cards, books - and beautiful surroundings. The little fridge was thoughtfully stocked with basics...

Oh Orveas... we love coming back. If you look at the website and wonder "Could this place possibly be as nice as it looks on the website?"

Thank you for your kind words... you are our "oldest" family and we are truly amazed at how Andrew has grown along with our time here..we have all experienced good and trying times over these years but problems seem to disappear sitting on a deck chair watching the boat pass by and sun setting over the sea.

Came down here for my birthday this year and had an amazing time. The seclusion yet easy access to everything you need is unreal! The decor is well thought out and it feels just like being at home.

Myself and my adult children spent a weekend at this great resort. As the weather was not the best we spent most of our time relaxing in the spacious and comfortable Captain's Quarters. We had the fireplace roaring both nights and used the amazingly stocked kitchen to prepare gourmet meals rather than venturing out in the rain. Highly recommended.
