My wife and I stayed at the Starboard house for 3 nights. The property is extremely relaxing with a beautiful view and a great secluded beach to explore. I especially liked laying in the hammock watching the hummingbirds, eagles and deer foraging around the yard.

Our stay at Ron and June's Port Cottage was nothing short of magical. We spent the first day lounging, walking on their beach, and sitting in the hot tub. Day 2 we took a day trip to Victoria, which was fun, but we couldn't wait to get back to the relaxing environment at the cabin. Ron gave us great suggestions for the area and we spend the 3rd day at China Beach Provincial Park. If you are searching for the ultimate relaxation vacation with some fun day trip options, look no further. We hope to visit again in the future! Thank you, Ron and June for creating the perfect getaway! -Jennifer & David

Had an amazing stay in the Starboard cabin for a couple of nights this August. The hot tub has the most stunning views of the Pacific and across to America, and the cabin itself was beautiful. Ron and June prepare everything for you, to the extent that we brought a box full of condiments etc. that we ended up not using as everything was provided for us. I couldn't recommend this highly enough if you're looking for a few days of peace and quiet. Hopefully, we will be back!

Response from June:
There is an error on this posting... On July 22nd we received a reservation request from Dawna..that had been confirmed by Airbnb... we sent a response letting her know that we had just taken a reservation just minutes before for her requested dates..we were surprised that Airbnb had accepted the reservation without contacting us 24 hrs before acceptance as that was the policy we had agreed upon when registering with the company. We were very apologetic and we offered to find alternative accommodations for her in the area. Dawna replied and said she understood and that friends had offered her their home.. I asked her to please cancel the reservation with Airbnb as an operator/owner of 4 rental properties for 16 years it is always the guest who cancels the reservation. 2 days prior to the requested arrival date I received an email from Dawna asking me to refund the payment that was made to Airbnb I responded that I thought the reservation had been cancelled from their end and that we did not have the funds paid. . I tried to contact Airbnb but was unable to do so ,it is impossible! So I finally figured out a way to cancel the listing from our end.I had been back and forth with Dawna and related that I would let her know what had transpired with the Airbnb now posted a review saying we had cancelled the reservation the day before arrival. Not so, there never was a reservation. This issue would have been easily resolved had there been a way to contact Airbnb ... perhaps that is the most common complaint about this site

We had an amazing time at the Starboard Cottage. The view is incredible and the hot tub was perfect. Very comfortable and private. Thanks so much.

What a wonderful experience! The open and friendly attitude with which we were welcomed set the course for the entire weekend here. We couldn't have asked for better hosts or accommodations. June and Ron were some of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting when renting through Airbnb. June introduced herself when we arrived, and took the time to give us a short tour of the cottage and the grounds. She was personable and charming, and her knowledge of the area was very much appreciated. The cottage itself was even better than I'd imagined, and the view of the strait was magnificent. I would (and think likely will) go back again sometime. Though they weren't low to begin with after seeing the beautiful photos on their website, my expectations were definitely exceeded.

My husband Ron and I have lived on our property at Orveas Bay for the past 25 years. It has been a labor of love building and creating from the forest our special place by the sea. In the winter months we take time to travel and experience other cultures and to have other hosts take care of our needs! Our accommodations are designed and offer the amenities we enjoy and want to share with our guests.
