Relaxing break in Bowser

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 nights here. The main purpose of our stay was to relax and acclimatise after flying from the UK and spending 3 days each in Vancouver and Victoria and this home was just perfect for that. We totally unwound, ready for more travels over the next 3 weeks. Steve was very friendly, the house was larger that expected and had everything needed. Idyllic.

quiet beautiful area, great house, people, views and walks

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Steve and Kathy's house for 5 weeks and loved every minute. Steve and Kathy are great hosts, live nearby and were willing to help in any way if we needed it but did not interfere. House was a lot bigger, brighter than we expected and had everything we needed.Did not feel like a one bedroom house. Great welcome gift left for us. Very comfortable, good wifi, close to beach to see eagles, listen to sea and seals, we wandered there every night for a walk. Loved the deer wandering around neighbourhood. Friendly people in Bowser. Great that we could walk to shops and use library there also. We had numerous walks of various lengths ( up to 5 hrs) in area, great rivers and waterfalls. Overall would recommend house and area if you like nature, peace and quiet. Would love to return. We have sstayd in numerous houses in many countries and this was the best for us.

Great house in an awesome location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house is in a very quiet, private location near the ocean. From the back of the house, living room and bedroom, you can see the ocean through the trees and even hear it when the windows are open!

There house is very well appointed, the bed was comfortable and the price was very good. We would definitely stay here again.
