The quarterdeck is a well equipped room with an incredible view! We found the design of the suite and the included deck served us well. Due to food allergies we have to eat cook our meals and ate like royalty using the bbq, fridge and microwave (the local store is well stocked). The whales, seals & birds added to the joy of the suite. Karen was so accomadating and helpful.

“Basic Acccommodations with a 5-Star View”
Reviewed August 4, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

people found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed in the Blue Suite in July, 2011. Overall we liked this property although it was extremely basic accommodation. The bottom line is that it's older, has mismatched furniture and a musty smell. Those facts would deter anyone who likes luxury. But there are few options on Texada Island for accommodations, and we ended up enjoying the suite because of the incredible view and it's strategic location on a cliff side.

Pro's
-amazing view of VanAnda Bay from the full wall of windows in the living room (my husband witnessed the most amazing sunrise from the couch)
-quiet, peaceful location on a cliff overlooking the bay (saw some seals in the morning and birds all around), no traffic sounds, only a few other quiet homes nearby
-lots of room including a large living room & eating area, and a spacious kitchen
-full kitchen facilities (although we didn't cook while there)
-very reasonable rate at $80/night
-clean bathroom & kitchen
- bowl of very nice fresh fruit provided
-friendly property managers who were easy to contact & responded quickly & were friendly

Cons
-a musty smell in the suite upon arrival (improved with airing & I guess we got used to it)
-small bedroom with double bed & no view from the bedroom
-the balcony was a bit 'disconnected' from the suite (only a few steps away, but you have to leave the front door of the suite and the deck is off to the side by a shed). This deck has no protection from the shade and isn't totally private (from the guests in the other suite would pass you on their way to their car) TIP: The other suite (ie . not the blue suite) appears to have a much better balcony (attached and covered, and more private)
-mismatched furniture that is a bit old-fashioned and sometimes was 'tacky' and worn
-the fuses blew if you used a hair blow dryer and coffee maker at the same time! (and no warning or instructions provided on how to deal with this!)
-parking is awkward and limited, and accessed off a very steep lane. Access to the cottage from the driveway requires a hike up and down a long flight of stairs. This is not suitable for someone with serious mobility issues.

If not for the location & view, we would have given the suite a 2-star rating. But we have to agree with 4-star rating that others gave, because of the incredible view and quiet location. Staying in this suite is truly getting your little bit of water-side paradise in the Gulf Islands.

By the way, this property is for sale! My husband and I seriously thought of buying it for the location and view. A major overhaul of the decor and furnishings would be required, though, before we'd move in! And the source of the musty odor would have to be found & remedied!
