I had a great time in this cute little cabin. From the deck I could see bald eagles flying and diving for fish. The property is peaceful and the beach below was great! Karen was a great host. There is a fridge, bbq, and toaster. If you are looking for a quiet peaceful spot next to the sea this is the one. And an outdoor shower!!

This was an absolutely amazing place. Just as advertised. First, can't say enough about the owner. She's awesome. My wife and I have never been to the Pacific Northwest, and her recommendations before we even checked in were spot on. Super responsive in communication and all-around great person. Her cabin is set RIGHT ON the water...you just have to go down a few steps to get access to the beach. The stars at night and the sunrises are spectacular. On the beach, she has a nice fire pit where we made beachfires in every night. There's so much wildlife around this cabin. One of the best memories made was sitting at the beach fire during low-tide watching about 10 bald eagles scoop fish right out of the water. They flew right over us. All the while, you can see a lighthouse in the distance by the mountain turn on its light. Absolutely incredible. The owner has an amazing garden (not advertised in the property description) that surrounds the outdoor shower. It literally smells better than your shampoo! The town of Bowser is small but has everything you need - general stores, grocery stores, a pub called Roadhouse and fantastic cafes and restaurants only a short drive away. What's also great about this location is you can easily drive anywhere around the island. We took day trips to Tofino, the Cathedral Forest, Port Alberni, Spider Lake, and Sprout Lake. The once place we didn't go to was Hornsby Island, which is a short ferry right from Deep Bay (just a couple kilometers north of Bowser). The cabin beds were mega comfortable. The bathroom and appliances in the kitchenette perfectly functioning. We cooked a steak dinner right on the grill on the front porch facing the water. For May,the water was pretty warm. We bought inter-tubes (aka a giant donut and a flamingo) from the General store and floated into the bay for a couple hours. Complete relaxation and fun. This place was one of the more memorable I've ever stayed. If I ever come back to Vancouver Island, this is where we'll be!

Karen and Cathy's cabin is a little piece of heaven! It's literally a minute walk down a few steps to the beach! The garden is gorgeous, and the cabin is really well set up! There's a fridge, a mini bbq, a microwave and a coffee pot. Towels were provided and the shower had shampoo/conditioner/soap. My dog absolutely loved it too! I would love to return here :).

The cabin was perfect for our relaxing and quiet weekend. Close enough to the local shops, but quietly nestled on a beautiful property. Our dog loved walking on the beach. We explored nearby Qualicum and Horne Lake Park. We'd definitely recommend staying here.

A highly recommend spot to use as your base camp for adventures or to hunker down at and enjoy the slow life. Beach access minutes down from the cabin, it is hard to stray too far. Many thanks to Kathy and Karen.

We fell in love with this piece of paradise at first sight. As we enjoy a fair bit of travelling we felt it would be a nice opportunity to share it so that others could also discover this beautiful coastline of Vancouver Island. It's magical!
