The space

Have you ever slept in an octagon cabin along the river? Well now you will get an opportunity to do that! Our place is great for couples and families. The resident woodpecker, Knotty, is sitting in the tree out front, waiting to welcome you to our cabin in Sunshine Valley.

Sit on the deck with your morning coffee and listing to the Sumallo River along with the birds waking and watch the sun rising over the hilltops.

After breakfast walk along the stream bank up to the big bridge that takes you onto a forestry road that will lead you to endless choices of paths and trails to follow.

Be aware the downstairs fireplace is in the centre of the hallway. There are nightlights available to guide you during the night so that you do not encounter the stove on the midnight run to the fridge. You will want to ensure your little ones do not touch the stoves!

My family and I loved staying at Monica's house in Sunshine Valley. It was in a great location: quiet and near the river. The house is also incredibly spacious and well stocked. We had everything (and more) that we needed in the kitchen and bathroom. Monica was also very responsive and quickly answered my many questions.

It's a very spacious and comfortable cabin, with nature at its back door. There is a beautiful river that runs along 10 meters from the house. Very secluded area. Perfect for those who'd like to get as close to nature in a comfortable setting.

This place is great for large groups and Monica was very responsive to our questions leading up to our stay. The kitchen had MANY more supplies and cookware than any other Airbnb rental that I have booked before and it made it so much easier to make our own food - plus there's an amazing grill on the patio. No wifi and cell reception was a welcome relief for a group of busy working professionals - this may be an issue for some, but we certainly took advantage of the quality time with friends.

The Octagon was perfect for our extended family, a beautiful location next to the river, nature trail, and forest, close to Manning, comfortable with lots of space. Plus Monica ordered up snow and we enjoyed a winter wonderland!

Thanks David, It was a pleasure having you and your family. Glad we could provide the snow as an added benefit! Appreciate the feedback you provided and will 'firm' it up. Hope to see you again! Monica
