Personal service is very helpful and yet unobtrusive. Kitchen/eating area is excellent, and gardens are very inviting. Facilities are clean and comfortable. Our sleeping room in the overflow building across the street from the main house did not have a window that opened, so the air quality was poor at night and we had to keep the room door open. With regard to extra charges, such as for keeping a vehicle on the property when clients are not staying or for storing luggage, please publicize those charges in advance (at time of booking) so folks are prepared.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our busy nights mean that we use some overflow rooms in a separate building, and some of them do not have a window. For the extra services mentioned for storage of luggage and/or vehicle, we do have a very detailed page dedicated to this topic on our webpage. We invite all our future guests to visit our webpage as it lists our services, but also our location, how to get to our place and most questions first time visitors can have. At the time of booking, we do send people a confirmation email in which we share the links to some of those services.

A very pleasant stay with very friendly staff. The host even allowed us to invite our fellow group members who were staying elsewhere to have diner at Bayview Garden. You're also allowed to stay after check-out time. The location is very practical.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. Most of our guests fly out of sandspit and depending on the flight time, which at the moment is in the early to mid afternoon, we usually allow our guests to leave their luggage in the main entrance of the Bayview Garden after check out time (11am0 and to use a part of the facilities that we clean last. It is a courtesy to our guests that we think makes sense as there are not a lot of places in our small town for guests to go to and hang out before their flight.

The Bayview Garden was a wonderful place to stay. Flavien was a great host, and the layout of the guesthouse was great, with a well laid-out kitchen and other common areas for being social, and really nice rooms to retreat to when not feeling so social. Flavien has curated some excellent information about the Sandspit area in the various reference sheets, including information about all of the hiking around, stores and restaurants, and ways to get around.

Very friendly staff! Found it comfortable, and had all I could hope for. The only concern was my first night was spent in a room that doesn't have a lock. That wasn't comfortable . But the second night, I was in a room where I could lock the door. All good.

Thank you for your review. It is true that not all rooms have locking capabilities. We will take this into account and will see if we can install new door handles that could allow people to lock their doors, as we understand some people might feel safer at night with a locked door.

Great! Nice accommodations and very nice hosts. Great location. Close to airport. Easy access to other sites to see. Kitchen where you can cook your own meals. I would stay here again if I go to Queen Charlotte islands.

It was wonderful. We were able to stay, explore, have the ability to leave an extra bag at the Bayview to collect on our return trip (extra clothes and shoes etc.) The place was overlooking the beach and water. It was amazing. 10/10. Would recommend to anyone traveling through.

Highly recommend this spot!. My favourite things were the beachfront location, and how clean and well kept it is. Flavien also keeps beautiful gardens, and there are outdoor spaces to hang out with other travellers, read and relax. The communal kitchen is large and spacious and has anything you need. If you forget any breakfast items, they have reasonable priced individual things for sale. I wasn't expecting, for $75 a night, for nice towels to be provided, a blow dryer, and coffee ready to go in the kitchen! You can just tell when someone really cares about a property, and Flavien clearly does, and it shows in many small touches throughout Bayview Gardens. He is also a wilderness photographer, and his original pieces decorate the rooms. It's a great place and you will feel very welcome and comfortable here.

Flavien was so welcoming and very helpful. I will definitely stay here again if I return to Sandspit! I met him at the Visitor Center at the airport, and he suggested I rent a bike, which was a great idea! I enjoyed being able to walk across the street and be down on the beach in 2 minutes.

Comfortable, clean, quiet, affordable lodging on Moresby Island. Great way to meet other travellers as you share a kitchen and common space. Perfectly located across from a beautiful beach - incredible sunsets and saw a rainbow one morning. Thank you, Flavien, for a great stay!

Very special place with all the amenities for a person before and after a trip. Amazing library and guest kitchen. I am 65 and I read a review, before booking, from a older guest suggesting that the guest house was not for older guests. In my opinion, it definately gives you all the amenities for your trip.
