(Two consecutive stays - same review): The suite is perfectly appointed with a nice washroom, kitchenette and sitting area. The bed is more comfortable than any you'll find in a hotel. Jane provided homemade muffins for breakfast along with other options including fresh fruit. The view from the porch is lovely and the neighbourhood quiet. At one point the power went out for the entire neighbourhood, but the hosts have a generator and Jane provided me with a flashlight and made sure I got down to the suite safely. I thoroughly enjoyed my time. The quality and service beat any you'll find at a hotel for a similar price.

Jane was a gracious and helpful host. Her homemade muffins were delicious! The location of this accommodation is waterfront in a beautiful area of high end homes. It was a short walk to secluded beaches and walking trails. Overall great value.

Jane was very warm and welcoming to us when we arrived. True to other reviews, the accommodation in her lovely home is very comfortable, clean and private. The location is convenient to downtown and the view of the water is fantastic. There is a little beach access steps away from the house which was a nice spot to dip your toes in the water without having to travel very far. Jane provided a delicious selection of breakfast items in the fridge as well, and made sure we were well looked after. Thanks Jane, for a lovely and memorable stay in your oceanfront oasis!

Leslie- thanks for the wonderful review. I am thinking that you must write for living as you're very descriptive . Very happy to have met you and hope to see you again. :)

We enjoyed our stay very much. Jane was prompt with her replies when making the arrangements and answered any questions we had. The room had its own outside entrance and was very private, clean and comfy. To access the room you have to go down a full flight of stairs outside so if you have mobility issues this room may not work for you. The home is in a very quiet, beautiful location where we felt very safe. We enjoyed a nice walk in the area and the ocean access is very close. Breakfast was a tasty mix of fresh fruit, pastries & yogurt. Everything was just as it is presented on the website ~ we would love to stay again if the opportunity arises.

Response from Jane:
Hi Val- great meeting you guys and we'd love to see you again. (The steps to the suite are noted in our pictorial on AirBnb - we certainly don't want to surprise a guest who cannot walk up a flight of steps. :) ) Thanks for your feedback- be great to visit with you again. We are in the process off building a gazebo with patio & firepit down on the lower section so perhaps we can all sit down there and share some wine next time. :) Take care. jane

Jane was friendly and accommodating. Our suite was small but perfect. Breakfast was provided in the fridge for us to enjoy on the oceanfront deck. Stunning views! It was a quiet and gorgeous place to sit and enjoy the views and relax for a couple of days. The mattress and linens were exceptionally comfortable. When I mentioned to Jane that wifi was kicking us off, she immediately went to work to remedy it. I would recommend this to anyone.

Our dreams came true last year- moving to Vancouver Island and building our home on the ocean. We love nature and the peace & tranquility the ocean offers. We spend many hours outdoors- boating, hiking, fishing and soon will be beginning our gardens. We are both avid divers in the winter months in Mexico. We are a quiet - non smoking- semi retired couple - happy to share this small piece of the heaven.
One of our favorite past times now is sitting on our deck watching the ever changing scenes that Departure Bay has to offer. Nothing compares to seeing the moon rise over the shimmering water on a warm summer evening.

We want to offer guests complete privacy in a beautiful safe neighborhood. My housekeeper keeps everything touch notch and spotless. We offer an adult only, no pets, no smoking ( sorry not even outdoors) policy.
We began with Airbnb early this summer it's been fantastic.
