Fabulous comfort and location

  • 5 of 5

Dan and Melinda have provided a fully renovated, completely outfitted accommodation in a central location that allows easy access to many desirable options (e.g., ocean beach, freshwater lakes, Lochside Trail, restaurants, shopping, and easy driving to downtown). It's spacious, comfortable, quiet, private, has a view of the ocean, and includes every convenience one could think of. It was a perfect option for us ... thank you for being such wonderful hosts!

Immaculate, Comfortable, Well Appointed and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

The Ocean Muse, besides having a Wonderful Ocean and Coastal View, was spacious and fully stocked with everything we needed for our stay AND came with a thoughtful and Generous Welcome basket. Melinda and Dan are welcoming and gracious hosts with tips and details of sites to see and places to eat! We ranged from Cordova Bay to Salt Spring Island to Parksville and Tofino to Victoria and Port Renfrew. My favorite dinner was at Point No Point in Shirley but I think my wife enjoyed Shelter Restaurant in Tofino. For breakfast we frequented The Village Restaurant right down the road from The Muse off the 17 but also really enjoyed the Malahat Chalet on the 1 on the way to Tofino. We both LOVED the Cathedral Grove as well as many other forest hikes. And, yes, The Goats on a Roof in Coombs. There is SO MUCH TO SEE on the island and not enough time for it all. On THIS Trip! We'll be back. Hopefully The Ocean Muse will be available when we return. Thanks for being there Melinda and Dan. All the best. Allan and Carol

Clean and Serene

  • 5 of 5

Quiet neighborhood, lovely view, clean and comfortable house.

We drove to downtown, Uvic, grocery store and sight seeing quite easily. Walked to the beach and dinner at The Beach House.

Dan was kind and made sure we didn't need anything, thanks.
