Sue and Gord were very friendly hosts. They offered us many tips about the area and made us feel at home. Sue baked banana bread and left different fruits for us each day, which was a nice touch. Their property is really lovely, with an orchard, creek and terraced garden. Our room was large, with lots of extra blankets, slippers and robes. At night, it was nice and cool and dark. We slept well! There's a small fridge for guest use, which was super handy as we brought some snacks with us. There's also a private path right around the corner, leading to a beautiful rocky beach where we saw a seal playing on our final morning. This Airbnb is in a great location for exploring Cowichan. It was our first time in the area and we visited wineries, great restaurants, a bird sanctuary, tea and lavender farms and more, all within easy driving distance. One thing to note: noise travels in the house, which may not be ideal if you want a lot of privacy or a super romantic getaway. It's similar to staying with family friends. Overall, a great home base, geared to travelers who want a more hands on Airbnb experience, with hosts who are ready and willing to tour you around their property and hear about your adventures at the end of the day. Thanks for your hospitality, Sue and Gord.

Susan User Profile

I (Susan) am a 60+ personal trainer and my husband (Gordon Wilkinson) is a retired English teacher.

We both run and also enjoy hiking, biking, books, movies, cooking and billiards.
We have worked on our house, gardens and orchard over the past 20 years and so it is natural for us to want others to enjoy this place; people always feel relaxed and rested after a visit.

We have travelled quite a bit in Europe, mostly France, Italy and Spain; I speak some French and Italian. We plan active holidays, preferring to stay for extended periods so we can get to know a place well. We have enjoyed 2 Airbnb experiences and one extended house exchange.
