This place is a magical spot among the coastal douglas firs, tucked next to a beautiful creek, with trailheads to wonderful hikes right on the property. It is a perfect retreat centre to visit if your group is quiet, comtemplative, wanting to break bread, hike, meditate or do yoga/dance/movement/group work together. The house and studio accommodated us perfectly and it reminded us of sleepovers and camping cabins from childhood where we all found a comfortable mattress to sleep on with enough proximity to tell stories and hold conversations as everyone drifted off to sleep in various sleep designated areas. The property is shared with a couple of hosts and artists and it feels like you are welcomed to a community when you arrive. Not one that demands your time but is available to help with any questions or meet any needs.

Thank you, Alison, for letting us stay at your place. We all (14 people) had a great time in the woods hanging around. The nature surrounding your property is beautiful and feels like a great get away.

Where do I begin? I will urge large groups to confirm every last detail with this host as many things were left out of the posting and communication 1. Booking: We had arranged for over 20 people to stay on Alison's Property. We booked a month in advance. From the brochure, the place looked amazing and included everything we needed. I personally called Alison (and emailed) prior to booking to confirm space which included 3 separate living spaces (this was documented in multiple emails). I also called prior to booking to confirm we would be the only guest on the main area of the property. When we arrived she had rented one of the buildings out to another guest, as well as rented out a camper trailer. This was adjacent to one of our cabins. We actually paid an extra $150 to accommodate 21 people prior to arriving (outside of the Airbnb platform). When I showed her our email conversations her only reply was, "well do you want to leave?" We were not picky and had all ferried over so we let it go and re-arranged the two cabins to fit our group. The Airbnb listing was also changed after the original booking to make it seem likely the extra cabin was already taken. 2. Bed space. As mentioned above we paid extra to accommodate 21 people. Unfortunately, they did not have enough bedding supplies. At least 5 people had to sleep on throw pillows, we went out and bought two extra pillows, and one person slept on a towel. Some of the linens were also clearly not washed. 3. Water. There was no indication on the listing that the property runs on stream water. This was only told to us when we arrived. This wouldn't be a problem, but the supply depends on how much water is in the creek. Unfortunately, during our stay, there was no water pressure. This meant no one was able to shower, the taps barely worked, and we had to manually refill the water tank on the toilet to flush. Despite the above, the property is beautiful, and although some areas of the cabin need repairs, on the whole, it is a good space. I think the owners just need to be more clear in their communication or guests will be disappointed.

Our stay at Singing Creek was truly an escape from the hustle and bustle of Vancouver. We held our staff summer retreat in 2 of the cabins on the property. It is in a fantastic location, only a short ferry from Horseshoe Bay. There was ample space for sleeping arrangements and a wonderful outdoor area for group meals and activities. It was amazing to wake up and hear only the sounds of the forest while enjoying a morning coffee on the deck or walking through the trails. I recommend this rental for anyone looking to relax and enjoy some quiet time.

The forest environment surrounding the cabins was very nice. This is a good place to go with a large group and is only minutes away from the main town area.
