  • First, Evelyn is a fabulous host. She communicated with me every step of the way, always responded promptly to my questions and went above and beyond with her recommendations. We kept in touch before and throughout my stay and she ensured we had everything we needed. A super-host, no doubt. She went so far as to have her landscaper put extra time into having the property perfectly arranged for our stay. The next thing to note is the stunning view from the cabin. It takes your breath away. We checked in at 4:30 PM and as we walked through the front doors the only thing we noticed was the sun-drenched forest and mountain-scape from the large front windows. As you walk through the entrance, living room and kitchen, it’s all you can see – acres upon acres of forest, with the ocean and mountains in the background. There are two decks from which to view the scenery, or two lawn areas below the cabin. The view puts you into relaxation mode immediately. The cabin is very spacious for large groups. The many bedrooms – while sparsely appointed – provide ample room for a large number of people. The kitchen boasts all the appliances and plates one could need. I highly recommend this location for family reunions – there is sufficient room both inside and outside, and the downstairs bedrooms are separate enough that any ‘noise-makers’ could have their own area. Overall, we were very impressed with the space both inside and out and would definitely stay there again.

  • This place is pretty amazing. If you are looking for somewhere to get away from it all, this is it. Spacious, amazing view, with plenty of deck space to enjoy it from. Evelyn was immediately responsive to any communication and had plenty of suggestions for local hikes and activities. The area itself is gorgeous. There are many wineries and a cider house nearby (10 minutes). Unsworth Vineyards is definitely worth a tasting stop and the restaurant at the vineyard is truly phenomenal (no joke!) Merridale Ciderhouse is also worth a stop. Highly recommend.

  • We had the most amazing time filled with the perfect combination of adventure and relaxation. The home is beautiful and very spacious, which is perfect for family gatherings. The family room is the perfect spot to relax, read a book and enjoy the view- Which is one of the best I've seen! You really need to see it with your own eyes! The upper playroom and library was one of our favourite spaces.. we spent lots of time playing lego, reading and playing games. Evelyn was very helpful and gave us lots of great tips on fun things to do- the Kinsol trestle is a must do and the hike nearby is fabulous too! We will definitely be coming back to stay!

    Cara2016-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Evelyn is an amazing host and the property is beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice! The view is just breath taking. It is a peaceful place to unwind. Highly recommend staying here. I would gladly stay here again! Thanks Evelyn!!

    Shannon2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Our group of 10 parents with teens enjoyed a relaxing and comfortable stay at Evelyn's spacious cabin on the hill. The place was clean, the view was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed our respite from the rowing regatta. After spending a day in the elements we looked forward to our home away from home. There was a thermostat in just about every room so easy to adjust to everyone's comfort level. The kitchen had everything we needed, the beds were comfy and when there was a problem with a chirping smoke alarm our host was quick to reply and fixed it right away. It was a real pleasure staying there and I look forward to another visit and I will add this to our team recommended list of accommodations!!

    Laurelle2017-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Evelyn's beautiful home once again! It was the perfect venue for our 2nd annual family reunion (this time with guests from the United Kingdom and New Zealand who were completely blown away by the beauty and serenity!) . Everyone enjoyed watching the stars at night, playing guitar on the deck, dining amidst gorgeous views, the nature walks around the property, and also the 30 minute hike up Mount Baldy (right from Evelyn's front door) to check out the amazing 360 degree views of Shawnigan Lake from the top! We also hosted a birthday celebration at the house, and there was ample room for all our guests throughout the day to visit - with no one ever feeling crowded. As your first guests exactly one year ago on this weekend, we have noticed the many additions/changes to your home that made it an even more cozy and convenient stay! We packed toys for the children but there was no need with that wonderful loft up top with all the games, toys, Lego and building blocks! Thank you for another terrific stay! We hope to be back again next year!

    Shawnigan Lake, British Columbia, Canada

    Rural setting in Shawnigan Lake. Bright spacious private room located in a bed and breakfast. This room has private bathroom and separate breakfast/kitchenette area. Close to Kinsol Trestle, lake and trails.
  • Shawnigan Lake is a bit of a sanctuary with lots of trees & hiking trails, the old train trestle, beaches & fun on the lake! A huge ice cream scoop on a waffle cone is still only $2.50 at Chippers in town! Kate's place is near the trestle set in the trees & the master suite was spacious & luxurious! Bed linens simply divine! The guest wifi wasn't working yet so being a bit unplugged with the whole experience was fantastic. But I think they are working on getting it soon. If you want to visit somewhere a little unique on the island, stay here!

    Carla2017-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely suite and lucky find. I highly recommend picking Kate's if staying in the area.

    Pamela 2017-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Kate has created a very comfortable place to stay, tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and with plenty of space for two. The room is spacious, and the bed is very comfortable, made up with high quality linens. The dining area is perfect for making a bedtime cup of tea or snack, and for enjoying the simple continental breakfast provided in the morning (fresh peaches -- yum!). The location is right at the trailhead for the Kinsol Trestle, which is worth a walk. We arrived on our bicycles, and Kate helped us stow them in the garage. The property is very private and quiet, and just a short drive or pedal from swimming at Shawnigan Lake. This place is a little luxury in the forest.

    David2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Kate's place is a great location as it's secluded yet near a wonderful trail and historical landmark. One can enjoy nature and completely unwind. Kate and her husband were very quiet but friendly and courteous. I enjoyed staying at your b&b and will definitely book your place again in the future! Thank you!!

  • We visited mid June and this site was very quiet and peaceful with only a few other visitors on site. The cabin is as pictured and the lock box access made it very easy . We were provided with everything we could need while there. The chips and salsa welcome was appreciated and the Kinsol Trestle was a must see/walk experience

    Maggie2016-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our host was so thoughtful, and really made sure she covered the details, which made our stay so warm. We felt right at home. The location was stunning tons of fun things to do. Such a beautifully forested area, crystal clear swimming water and an abundance of trails.

    Shannon2016-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was exactly as described in the listing! It had everything we needed and was in walking distance to many cool places to explore (River, Kinsol Trestle). The community was filled with friendly people and we were made to feel very welcome. Barbara was always very quick to reply and made sure we felt very welcome at the cabin. We would certainly stay again!

    Bonnie2016-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Barb's place is lovely. The space is beautiful and the cottage is very well stocked. Thank you Barb for thoughtfully stocking the kitchen and having all those lovely plush blankets. The location of the cottage is ideal. Swimming at the river and biking at the Kinsol trail at your finger tips.

    Mabel2016-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay! Upon arrival the cabin/house was nice and warm with a bag of fresh, homemade cookies sitting on the kitchen table from Oma's bakery, a local baker located in the village of Shawnigan Lake. The accommodation itself was quite large with a well equipped kitchen, nestled in a forested area amongst 15 other small homes/cabins with the river close by (down a steep ravine). The upstairs loft had a very comfy, kind size bed. We loved how close we were to the Kinsol Trestle bridge. We will definitely come back to stay when the snow decides to leave and bring our mountain bikes, so we can cycle on the paths where the trestle bridge is. For the price value, this place is an gem!! Thank you...

    arlene2017-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara's cabin is perfect! She has very good taste in decor and the cabin had everything a guest could need. My family had a great time.

    Mary2017-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • We loved that cute place. There was enough room for us (3adults, 5children) as we mostly stayed outside during the days. Make sure to see the kinsol trestle and walk back to the cottages along the river!!

    Meike2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara was an amazing host - while we didnt get to meet her she was very responsive and even bought us some treats before we got there. The cottage was really cozy, very well furnished and had everything we could possibly need. Deer even showed up to our doorstep one night! Highly recommended for anyone looking to get away and relax on the island. Thanks Barbara!

    Situated on a quiet and private wooded acreage and hobby farm, the newly-built Giving Tree Cottage offers guests a cozy stay in Cobble Hill. This bright, sunny cottage has a luxury queen bed, a comfy sofa, a full, spacious kitchen, and a bathroom with a large soaker tub. Coffee, tea, and farm-fresh eggs are provided to start your day. While the cottage is perfect for an individual or a couple, foam mattresses can be supplied to sleep one or two children. It is wheelchair accessible.
    The Giving Tree Cottage offers you a quiet and comfortable stay while visiting the Cowichan Valley. This sunny, newly-built studio cottage is self-contained and has everything you need for a short or long stay. You will enjoy a fully-equipped kitchen, a luxurious queen bed, a bright bathroom with a deep soaker tub, and a comfy sitting area to curl up with a good book. Our property is surrounded by mature trees offering privacy in a natural surrounding. The quiet semi-rural neighbourhood is great for walks or bike rides. Star-gazers will appreciate the clear nights when you can enjoy a blanket of stars not often visible in the city. Foodies will love using the kitchen to cook up local fare from the Duncan Farmers’ Market and the many farm stands. Or, if you would prefer a break from cooking, you are minutes away from Unsworth Restaurant, Merridale Cidery, Bridgemans Bistro, and the Cobblestone Pub.
    The cottage is centrally located, allowing you to explore the many features of the Cowichan Valley. Walk the Kinsol Trestle, hike Mount Tzouhalem, kayak in Cowichan Bay, or take a wine tour! Those who like swimming and boating will enjoy being close to Shawnigan Lake, the Cowichan River, and the Saanich Inlet. The Giving Tree Cottage is less than a 10-minute drive from Shawnigan Lake, Mill Bay, Cowichan Bay, and Duncan, and only 40 minutes north of Victoria. The cottage is perfect for parents visiting students at Shawnigan Lake School, Brentwood College and Brooks Shawnigan Lake.
  • This location was perfect for us. On a quiet country road, but not too far from all the necessities. The cabin is close to hiking trails and great coffee, wonderful restaurants serving local food and vineyards for afternoon tastings. The cabin was a perfect fit for two people--wonderfully clean with everything you need to make your stay easy. We loved it!

  • Such a sweet and quiet place to stay- brenda and Ich are lovely hosts!

    Andrew2017-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • We've been traveling for an extended period of time and this cottage blew us away! Truly a gem! Sooo many thoughtful details that really made the place stand out in comfort and quality...for example the unit is well lit with windows and even a skylight but there's blackout curtains around the bed if you like to sleep in. ;) ...We like to cook some of our meals and the fully stocked kitchen (not like in some listings that leave you needing more ;) ) was sooo functional and spacious. The dishwasher was a bonus for us! Everything about this place was superb!! It's a close 10min bike ride (or longer walk) to Merridale Cidery and a bit further to Unsworth Winery - both of which are worth checking out. Tons of other wineries amd farms/farm stands nearby! As is beautiful nearby Cowichan Bay for stellar eco friendly whale watching (Ocean EcoAdventures). ....You should absolutely stay here, and then stay a little longer - I know we wanted to!

    Morgan2017-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • We were on the island for a wedding at Merridale Cidery - Brenda and Ich's cottage was the perfect place to stay. It was in a wonderful location, in a relaxing environment, with great hosts. The fresh eggs and milk were delicious. Thank you so much for everything!

    Rachel2017-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Brenda and Ich are incredibly nice and hospitable highly recommended.

    Jon2017-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Brenda and Ich's little cottage was absolutely PERFECT for my weekend stay! It was clean, warm and cozy, perfect for relaxing after a long day at a regatta. The kitchen was fully stocked and the bed couldn't have been more comfortable. I look forward to my next stay!

    Darci2017-04-30T00:00:00Z

    Set in a quiet garden on Vancouver Island, surrounded by forest. The trees are alive with birds and squirrels. Rabbits and deer are frequent visitors. Close to Victoria, a walk from the nearest vineyard, five minutes drive from lake and sea.
    All the amenities, comfort and convenience of home, for less than a B & B. Full size kitchen, Large bedroom, lovely sun-room looking out onto the fish ponds. Private entrance, patio with full size gas BBQ.
    We are in a quiet area of small acreages., but are a short drive from all conveniences.
  • It's everything it was said to be; it's a great place in a great location. We would definately stay here again without hesitation.

    John2017-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts, Keith and Cynthia,were incredibly gracious and helpful. They were delightful to speak with and gave us wonderful recommendations for things to do. The location is great for experiencing Victoria and the rest of the southern part of the island. And they couldn't love dogs any more!

    Julie2016-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Nice, quiet, clean place to rent!

    Amy2017-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • We were very pleased with the hosts and the suite which has all you may need for a wonderful, quiet and pleasant stay, in a wooded and rural area, near shopping and not far from Victoria or Duncan, surrounded with many places to visit and recreational options. Very roomy unit, ample parking, plus true to the pictures you see here, and you also get all your privacy from most caring hosts attending you needs.

    Amnon M2017-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • This place is great to get away , close enough for many different things to do. But secluded enough to enjoy peace and quiet.The hot tub, loved it. Our dog Alice loved it there she is 9 1/2 months old ,all the different smells and sounds compared to the city we live in , really pooped her out . Hope to return soon .

    Joanne2017-08-04T00:00:00Z

  • Our hosts were friendly, welcoming, informative, and generally fabulous! The location is also beautiful, especially if you like being outdoors. Our daughter's favorite amenity was the hot tub!!! (and the big screen tv...) We enjoyed lots of hiking, swimming in deliciously cold water and walking on the beach as well as a bit of Victoria. We were happy to use the washer & dryer to do a little laundry before we headed home. The kitchen was well-stocked and the appliances all work well! We would go back in a heartbeat.

    The Vines Garden Suite
    15 recensioni
    We invite you to stay on our 2/3 acre lakefront property in your own self-contained carriage-house suite and enjoy a bit of cottage living on the lake this summer. We are on the edge of the beautiful Cowichan Valley, only a block from the Trans-Canada Trail, 20 minutes to the ocean and 40 minutes to Victoria. You can join us for morning coffee or a swim off the dock, paddle our tandem kayak on the lake, cycle the countryside, or retire with a glass of wine by the campfire in the evening.
    As we head deeper into fall our property may not be able to offer you swimming, but you can still go out in the kayak, bike ride and explore the Cowichan valley. Or stay here if you are visiting students at either private schools on the lake. Prices are lowered as of Oct 1 to reflect the quieter season. This sweet and simple studio suite has a max. occupancy of two people and is suitable for an active couple who love to sip a morning coffee on the dock, swim out to the diving platforms and jump!, laze on a lawn chair with a good book, paddle a tandem kayak around the lake, try some fresh organic veggies from the garden, share an evening campfire and stargaze with a glass of wine. There's plenty of space to keep to yourselves, but sometimes you will be sharing the dock or campfire with your hosts. We are on a lake on an island in the ocean so there is lots to explore! For cyclists, we are perfectly located next to the Trans-Canada Trail for an easy ride to the Kinsol Trestle, or take a day trip around Shawnigan Lake or through the pastoral Cowichan Valley with its many nearby wineries and markets. The Trans-Canada is planned to open its link between Shawnigan and Victoria on July 1, 2017. Since the cottage is one block from the Trail, it will be possible to ride your bike from Victoria to the cottage suite for a cycling holiday. Our location is an easy 40 minute drive into historic Victoria, and only 20 minutes to funky Cowichan Bay where you can rent kayaks or whale watch, followed by fish & chips and a beer on a seaside patio. The Suite is a second story carriage-house style apartment, which means over our storage garage, with access from an exterior stairway. The suite is 500 sq. ft. and includes an open concept living/kitchen/eating area, a queen-sized bed in a screened off area of the apartment, and a bathroom with a shower. There are two small balconies, one with a view to the lake, the other south-facing with a small Weber grill, small table and chairs in a sunny spot. The kitchen is fully equipped with most pots, dishes, utensils and the basic spices you will need. We provide all linens, bathroom towels, beach towels, and cozy blankets for sitting outside during our cooler coastal evenings. Wireless internet is available and access to our laundry facilities if needed. The Property: The 2/3 acre property is flat and with mostly open grassed areas and one majestic Douglas Fir tree. The property is bisected by our access road and dead-ends a few properties past ours. You have to cross this road from the suite and our main cottage to get to the lake & dock but it is like crossing your driveway. Our old deaf dog used to meander back and forth all day long – the traffic is minimal and local. On the lake-side of the road, a grassy lawn leads down to the lake where there is a swing, a large dock with a slide, a lily pond natural area on one side, and a small sandy beach area on the other. Entry into the water from the beach is a very gradual slope with a nice sandy bottom. The lake is great for swimming/kayaking/canoeing, sailing, and fishing. For a little thrill you can swim out to a public-use wooden dock in the middle of our bay, where you can climb a ladder to jump or dive off the high platform. There are plenty of motorboats and water skiing on the lake, but our bay is fairly protected from the high traffic and our neighbours are wonderful. We do not accommodate guest's boats on the property unless you bring your own human-powered boat such as a kayak. We have a tandem sit-on-top kayak you can use anytime but especially for a lovely morning or evening tour of the lake. We have a fenced-in veggie garden at the back of our property, and if you like to garden, we’ll hand you a weeding tool. As a guest, we would like you to have access to all of our 2/3 acre property, except the private patio/garden directly behind our main cottage where we will be living during your stay. The lawn area at the lakefront and the dock are great places for guests to hang out. We have a tandem sit-on-top kayak which you are welcome to use, and there is space for storage of bikes in our garage if needed. There is a large driveway that can accommodate your vehicle. The laundry machines are in the main cottage, but we can give you access if needed during your stay. We spend time on the dock, at the campfire and in the garden, so you will be sharing these spaces with us. We might be off on a day-trip, or a few hour bicycle ride, but most of the time will be available for questions, ideas for activities, or if you need some crucial piece of kitchen equipment for cooking a meal. Most guests will need a vehicle to get around because of the rural location. However, it is possible for serious cyclists to travel to our location. There is bus transit from the lake to areas around the Cowichan Valley, the town of Duncan, and into the City of Victoria. The nearest bus stop is 5 kms from our cottage. The Weather: Coastal weather is hard to predict, but we have plenty of great weather and sunshine in the summer. The lake is typically like glass in the morning, perfect for kayaking, paddle-boarding or swimming. We usually spend several hours on the dock with our morning coffee, enjoying the beauty of the lake. Sometimes the afternoons can be windier on the lake, and we usually head out on our day-trips then. Surprisingly we rarely get rain in the summer, but the temperatures can be cooler especially in the evenings due to the proximity of the ocean. We usually sit outside in the evenings but with a cozy blanket (which we will provide for you.) We often have a campfire in the evenings on the lake-side, which you are welcome to join, or take one of the chairs onto the dock to star-gaze. Shawnigan Lake is a 7 mile long lake, 20 minutes inland from the east coast of Vancouver Island. "A lake on an island in the ocean." The lake is active with water-ski boats, fishing, sailing, paddle boards and kayaks. There are several islands on the lake, one of which is a provincial park with public access. Our bay is fairly protected from some of the busier boating activity. Shawnigan Lake is located in the beautiful pastoral Cowichan Valley filled with many wineries and a cidery where you can spend time in their tasting rooms or enjoying their on-site restaurants. Local food and wine is a serious past-time in the Cowichan and Shawnigan area. For a longer day-trip we are a 40 minute drive to historic Victoria, a beautiful city and harbour with lots of sightseeing opportunities. It's a 20 minute drive to the ocean and the quaint seaside town of Cowichan Bay where there are excellent ocean kayak rentals and a whale watching company. You can also drive 30 minutes to the Salt Spring Island Ferry crossing at Crofton, and have a daytrip to the Salt Spring Saturday Market. If you are a cyclist, there are many routes we can suggest along the roads in the valley, and we are a block from the Trans-Canada Trail. The Trail is a hard-packed gravel path that runs for miles through the forest and much of it is along a former railway route. The famous Kinsol Trestle, one of the largest wooden trestles in the world, is along the Trail and spans a deep gorge in a forested area only 7 kms from our cottage – it is a stunning location and an engineering feat.
  • Great communication pretrip. Lots of little touches like breakfast stuff in the fridge. Room is small but clean and nicely arranged. The dock in the lake is awesome.

    Pat2017-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks to Dinah and Paul for the most unforgettable night during our round trip! The cottage was cute and very clean and there is everything you need for a comfortable stay... and you can see the sunrise from the bed in the morning (at least during our stay) Dinah and Paul were fantastic hosts, very helpful and polite. The location is awesome, swimming in the lake in the evening was fantastic and starting the day with a coffee and a short bath was unforgettable. I was sad not to stay longer and if I ever come back to Vancouver Island, I will be back with you, Dinah and Paul

    Johanna2014-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Dinah and Paul was the best thing that my Fiancee and I have done all summer. The detached loft was quiet, and private which was just what we wanted and we had every amenity that we needed to make our stay comfortable. The property is beautiful, and the hosts were top notch. Needless to say, we are coming back next year!

And their apartment was just perfect, we felt at home at once! The apartment is very cosy, clean and well equipped with everything you need. And the surroundings are great: the lake is directly in front of the house with a nice dock and a big garden. Dinah and Paul lent us two bicycles so that we can explore the region by bike. And they also have a kayak which you can borrow. We would definitely recommend this place. It's the perfect apartment to explore the south of Vancouver Island as well as to relax and enjoy your holidays.

  • Dinah and Paul were both very hospitable and accommodating. The suite was wonderful and separate from their house. The property was amazing, and the view of the lake was perfect. We will definitely book another trip with this place soon! We loved every second of it.

  • Dinah and Paul were wonderful hosts. Super nice people that were incredibly accommodating. The studio was roomy, especially the kitchen, and it had a very comfortable feel to it. Diving off their dock into Shawnigan Lake 15 minutes after arriving and chilling in the sun was the perfect way to relax into our stay. We followed the swim up with grilling a steak for dinner and enjoying it and a glass of wine on the private deck. Additionally, Dinah and Paul went above and beyond to make our stay pleasurable. They had starter foods such as eggs, yummy muffins, coffee, butter, and homemade jam in the large kitchen. If you are heading to Shawnigan Lake anytime soon you would be a fool not to stay with these great folks in their comfortable studio. We look forward to staying with them again during our next trip out to the island.

  • Dinah and Paul are the sweetest! They were so helpful during our stay! They rented us their bikes and Kajak for free and suggested a lot of things to do. The place is wonderful and we can definetely recommend a stay at their house.

    Nicole2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderfull place to spend some very happy days. Our hosts were very kind and we would like to come back one day.

    Rest, Relax and Rejuvenate!!! This peaceful rural cottage is nestled in the forest among a cluster of cabins on the Koksilah River. BBQ or soak in the hot tub on the private deck or explore the area. Swim in the river only steps away or stroll to the historic Kinsol Trestle Bridge. A short drive will take you to the wineries, golf courses, parks, whale watching tours, horse trails and much more. The cottage is centrally located to explore Shawnigan Lake, Cowichan Bay, Duncan or Victoria.
    This space is truly a weekend escape for two - complete with private hot tub on the back deck. Formerly owned and operated by Monie. Here are some excerpts from the perfect 5/5 star ratings for our newly purchased AIR BNB cottage: "I can't say enough to recommend this place. It is the perfect spot for a retreat - it is peaceful and secluded while not feeling isolated (other cabins in the area but you won't notice the neighbours, except for the deer that might visit while you indulge in the hot tub!) This cabin is like having your own private spa in the woods, from the hot tub to big soaker tub and lovely shower, to fully equipped kitchen, comfy couch, and massive bed, it is full on comfort and luxury. The location is perfect too - makes an easy drive from Victoria for a weekend getaway, is close to lots of fun things to do (I recommend the cider for delicious food and drink), but also perfectly suited to just staying in and relaxing. We'll be back for sure!" "The perfect little getaway from the city! We were looking for a cozy little cabin in the woods with all the amenities we would need to enjoy our weekend whether we decided to stay in or go out, and we found it at the Kinsol Cottage." "Fantastic weekend getaway! Hot tub in the woods, under the stars, sound of the river rushing nearby. Super cozy cabin, well equipped, and just an hour outside of Victoria BC." "The location is perfect, we were able to go wine tasting at a local winery in under 15 minutes. We also visited the Kinsol Trestle and local bakery. The bed was beyond comfy, the bath tub spacious and the heated bathroom floors heavenly on a cold snowy day." "The kinsol cottage getaway is just what the doctor ordered! Superb environment to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday city life. Very relaxing and friendly neighbours. What a beautiful winter getaway with the nearby hiking trails as an extra bonus." "Monie's cabin was absolutely perfect. It was exactly as advertised, quiet, clean, and relaxing. The hot tub was wonderful and the kitchen was nicely stocked. I would highly recommend this destination!"
    The cabin is uniquely situated to accommodate exploration to many of the small communities within a short drive. Whether you go up island to Chemainus to see the historic murals or Theatre, to Ladysmith's Christmas Light up, to Cowichan Bay to take in the Crab Fest or to Victoria for sightseeing you will have many interesting stops along the way. There are 15+ wineries in the Cowichan Region, most with tasting rooms. Arrangements can be made for winery and craft brewery tours with pick up and drop off from the cabin through Cheers Cowichan. Outdoor Activities in the Cowichan Regional District are extremely diverse. From Agri Tourism, cycling, hiking, golf, horse-back riding, wildlife adventures and fishing, there is something to please every level of interest. Daily whale watching and wildlife tours through Ocean Ecoventures are available only a short drive away at Cowichan Bay. Explore all of Vancouver Island's marine ecosystem on a small group or personal tour. Alpine Stables is only minutes away where you can arrange a trail ride through an old growth forest, a limestone rock quarry or up to a mountain summit where a camera is a must. Duncan is known as the "City of Totems" and has more than 80 First Nations carvings located throughout the town. For Car enthusiasts, Duncan is home to the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit. Duncan also boasts and a year round Saturday Farmers Market, the BC Forestry Discovery Center and a Casino. A stay at our cabin can be one of both rejuvenating relaxation and amazing adventures all year long.
  • This cottage was even better than we could have expected. Secluded, quiet, super clean, and had all the amenities we could have wanted. It was so nice to walk along the Kinsol Trestle walkway, and public access to Shawnigan lake was only a 5 minute drive down the road. A perfect escape - thanks, Liz!

    Kingsley2017-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing! The place was very comfortable and clean not to mention within walking distance to the Koksilah River! Everything we needed was there and it was an above and beyond experience. This is the perfect spot for a quiet restful time on the island and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway!

    Nina2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and comfortable. It was exactly as described. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet retreat.

    Laurie 2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful, well appointed cottage near the kinsol trestle! Upscale, modern amenities that allow you to enjoy luxury all while escaping in nature. Liz was a fabulous host - very thorough, with prompt replies and friendly approach. She was always available to answer any questions. We had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable - we will most definitely be booking again in the future, and would highly recommend to others! Thanks Liz!

    BONNIE2017-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • This was my first experience with Airbnb and it definitely won't be the last! Everything was better than I expected, and Liz was so easy to talk to and very helpful. I think we'll be back one day. I highly recommend this place for a little weekend getaway

    Cute cottage with your private balcony! Mountain park across the street with tons of hiking, mountain biking, and horse trails. Shawnigan Lake is just 5 minutes away. Local pub is a two minute walk from your door! And there are tons of fantastic wineries in the area to explore. You'll love the Cowichan Valley and all it has to offer.
    There are numerous shops within the immediate area, including a coffee shop, convenience store, antiques, etc.
  • We enjoyed our stay in the cozy cabin. Very private and clean. Mary-anna and Gary are very helpful and friendly hosts. I would recommend it to others.

    Mya2017-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot right in the heart of cobble hill. Steps to a great coffee spot and local pub. Gorgeous little setting and very comfortable mattress! Thanks again! Would highly recommend!

    Laura2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Quaint, cozy, private and romantic cottage, excellent location close to everything...wish we had more time there! Gracious hosts. Definitely worth coming again!!

    Renee2017-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Mary-Ann and Gary were perfect hosts. Showed me and my girlfriend around the lovely little cottage as we got there then left us too it . Really nice local pub around the corner or if you’re feeling an evening in a huge DVD collect at your disposal , would recommend this place to anyone and would definatly go there again !

    Elliot2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place.

    Kari2017-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I wanted a quick weekend getaway so we looked at surrounding areas on the island. Mary-Anna & Gary's place was one of the few places available with instant book, so we did! I messaged them with my plans and they replied same business day letting me know that they'd be racing back to greet me after work on Friday. We arrived on time and Gary greeted us out front. Mary-Anna met us at the cottage and just went over general house rules and close by amenities and attractions. We had a great stay at their Pre-World War cottage and loved the cute layout of the whole place. I would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area as Shawnigan Lake, Duncan and Cowichan Bay are all within a half hour drive. Thank you for the accomodations!

    Ada2017-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and cozy!

    Stuart2017-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very peaceful and relaxing weekend at the cottage. Mary-Ann and Gary are lovely, generous hosts, and the cottage is small, but very cute, and equipped with everything that is needed. Bicycle trails and hikes are close-by, and Shawnigan Lake as well as Mill Bay are just a few car minutes away. We hope to return to the cottage and explore more of the region some day!

  • Martyn and marilyn were wonderful hosts, their place is lovely, the setting is beautiful and peaceful, and they were very kind to accommodate my request to stay later!

  • It is a great ^lace to stay. Excellently equipped, beautiful place, quiet to a complete relax, and super clean. We wish only to have more days to stay. It is a 5 stars accommodation. Highly recommended. Thanks to the hosts for the welcome gift, - sorry we don't drink too much- also, for the extra items to have a great breakfast . Everything was perfect. Definitively, it is place t back. Thanks Martyn.

    Rocio2015-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Martyn was a great host, welcoming and providing for our family as needed and more. He was very kind and made us feel very comfortable. This was our first time in Victoria, but it could not have been better, thanks to Martyn's hospitality!

    Gavin2014-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay with wonderful hosts. The location has easy access to the cowichan valley trail which is great for cycling or hiking and a short drive to some great wineries. We had a great weekend getaway.

    Cal2015-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here with another couple, it was a great indoor and outdoor space. It was a 2 bedroom and 1 bathroom basement walkout, with Martyn and his wife living on the main floor. Martyn replied promptly to my msgs, and gave us lots of privacy the throughout our stay which was preferred. He was very willing to answer any questions we had about the area. The house seemed a little off the beaten path, but was close to where we needed to be. The kitchen was equipped with dinnerware, dish soap, garbage bags, spices, toaster, coffee, coffee maker, etc so the only thing we had to buy was food. The four of us had a great time here!

    Hayley2015-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first trip to the Island and we hit the jackpot with Marilyn and Martyn's place. It is definitely as beautiful as the pictures and description. We were welcomed warmly by Martyn upon arrival, provided with bottled water (although the tap water is fine) and made to feel at home immediately. Beautiful, spacious, clean home, delightful garden, and awesome location for exploring the highlights of the southern island. Theirs is the kind of home that makes you want to move to Vancouver Island and never leave.

    Mary I.2013-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Notre hôte nous a reçu agréablement le premier jour. Il est très discret et ne l'avons pas aperçu du séjour si ce n'est le dernier jour. La maison est située en pleine nature et pour les amateurs de sites sauvages, c'est parfait mais pas très loin de Victoria et d'un centre commercial

    Jean marc2015-07-31T00:00:00Z

    Pretty and uninhabited..last property on the road. The river was meant to be explored. Koksilah park is a short drive away but the best spot is right here. :-)

    Elise2017-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot for a family vacation! Both the kiddo (2 y.o.) and the dog had fun, while the parent were able to relax. Very kid-friendly with lots of games, books, puzzles, swing set (a favourite!), inflatable pools, and best of all for parents with a toddler: baby gates and baby proofed cupboards. The large yard was great for kid/dog exploration; it provides a lot of room for all the play gear, but also has a BBQ, lounging chairs, and fire pit not too far off. The best was probably the short distance walk (3 min) to the river where you can swim and catch crawfish, and the many trails for short or long hikes. Also, great host! Wonderful & generous person with adorable kid! Not to mention their own pets that fast became friends with our dog.

    Mauve2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had an incredible time at this lovely place! Perfect for animal lovers like ourselves. Our kind host thought of absolutely everything and all of the extra small touches made for a beyond wonderful stay. The space has plenty of room for a group getaway. The lack of reception was heavenly!!

    Anita2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Unfortunately this place did not work for us really. Kiki is very helpful and tried to help, but the lack of more than one proper bathroom and the fact that there were only 3 proper bedrooms was a problem. In addition there is a very friendly pig located just outside one of the bedrooms, which meant we had to keep that window closed all the time. We had high hopes for this place and the fact that it was 'off grid' did not bother us, it just didn't work for us. We moved to a lakeside house after 4 days for the rest of our stay.

  • I got stuck in a huge snow storm. My friend Tracey made it and stayed. She had the best time. She said Diane was a great host.

    Cindy2016-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for a wonderful stay! The unit was lovely, very comfortable nicely decorated and spacious. I'd recommend it to anyone visiting the Shawnigan area.

    Alana2016-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The loft is very comfortable and clean, bright and airy and feels very homey. The hosts Diane and her husband were perfectly friendly and welcoming, making my stay even more comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet but friendly and the lake is a stone's throw away. Very nice neighborhood to walk around and the whole area is beautiful for walking or bicycling.

    Deanna2015-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • I was staying this cottage 6 days. It was amazing because room is so clean. The cottage must be new house, and it was located in near Shawnigan lake. It takes about 300 meters, so I enjoyed going fishing. In addition, I caught a bass fish which is 2 lb at near this house. I really appreciate this owner.

    Wataru 2015-05-06T00:00:00Z

The loft itself is beyond wonderful. It was clean, cozy, and extremely comfortable. And having the lake so close (less than a minute away) was awesome too. I wish we had stayed an extra day because of how comfortable everything was! I highly recommend this place. My experience with Diane and Mark was so positive that I hope all my future Airbnb stays will be just as enjoyable as this one!

    Very simple cottage style rancher in a quiet, country neighborhood. Lots of level parking. Five minute walk to the public beach. Coffee shop, restaraunts and retail shopping in quaint Shawnigan Village. 10 minute drive to the historic Kinsol Trestle.
    Our house is within minutes of almost anything you want to do outdoors. Year round hiking, running and cycling trails, water skiing and wake boarding in the summer, kayaking tours and rentals a short drive away. Several restaraunts and pubs, some within walking distance and even a reliable transit system that can get you to either Victoria or Duncan in under an hour.
    Our neighbourhood is in a quiet, rural setting surrounded by large coniferous trees in a well established area. It is likely that you will see deer, racoons, peacocks and many other species of wildlife just going for a walk in the evening. It is safe and secure and in twenty years we have never experienced any big city problems.
  • I had some travel difficulties and couldn't nail down a time that I would arrive. It went from mid morning to early afternoon to evening finally showing up after the dinner hour. Kev offered me a beer and a seat by the fire. I asked directions to grab a burger for dinner first and instead was offered to share the food that was coming out of the oven about that time. That was when Kev figured out that I was a scotch man. He had a selection, I had a bottle, we stayed up a little later than planned, hanging out and busting each others chops. It was as if we were old friends. The bed and room were comfortable and the bathroom clean and up to date. Breakfast was a nice smoothy, toast and fresh eggs. Very good. The next day was a long one for me and I was ready to turn in when I got a text stating they were down the street at a friends house. I decided to grab what was left of my scotch and head over for an hour or so. I enjoyed the company so much I lost track of time. Kev and Cindy would easily have given me all the space I needed if that's what I wanted. Instead they were very gracious hosts and included me in lives during my stay. I hope to be coming back for Brentwood Regatta for the next few years and when I do I plan on staying with the Searles. Great hosts, great people.

Both of us are Looking forward to future trips. Fish on! Thanks man!

  • Only met with Kevin as Cindy was away for the weekend but enjoyed my time there. He was very welcoming and inviting. The accomodation was great and made me feel right at home. We were able to ext back and forth which made finding the place and arranging times etc easy. I'd had a long dvive prior to arriving so it was great to hang out with him and relax in front of the firepit and share a beverage.

    Hume2015-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • This was my first time using Airbnb and the experience was fantastic. I'd give Kevin, Cindy and the accommodation a few more stars. In fact I'd even throw in a few stars for Lucy (the dog) and the cat as well. Thanks for everything .... We will definitely be back. Its nice to know there is a place to stay in Shawnigan Lake. Which also gets several stars.

    Laura2016-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! What can I say? This was by far the best AirBnB experience I've had. Kevin and Cindy were amazing hosts and made me feel right at home from the beginning. Like an old friend they haven't seen in a while. They said you come a stranger and leave a friend and it's true. Their house if beautiful and very clean. The bedroom was fantastic and the bed very comfy. It's walking distance to the lake and the small shops in "town" including excellent coffee and baked goods. They fed me great food, took me out and about, and even were volunteers at the triathlon I was on Vancouver Island to race. I guess the best compliment I can give is to say that it was such a great experience that I hope to come back soon. I can't recommend this place enough.

    Eric2016-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • This really is what Airbnb is all about!!! Kind people offering great accommodation and incredible company. Cindi and Kevin were so welcoming. Offered me dinner and sat and had a few drinks with them!!! Kevin showed me amazing tour with a morning run together, then to come back to Cindi making us an incredible breakfast in the beautiful garden with Lucy (the dog) at my feet! Some whiskey drank too which was allot of fun! My first experience sharing on Airbnb and couldn't recommend this house more! Such lovely people and beautiful home. Thanks to you both. Hope to have you both in Scotland

  • Large, roomy garden suite which was in great condition - all furniture an(URL HIDDEN)kitchen equipment was new and of a good standard. The house is set in manicured grounds with a large outdoor area containing a family sized outdoor dining set, with umbrella and firepit for the exclusive use of the suite. A wonderful woodland setting made for a peaceful and restful stay. No unexpected surprises. Good value.

  • Beautiful acreage. Walking distance to beach and stores. Within a short drive to Vic and everything to the north. The suite was exceptional with everything one would need. Executive suite would be the best way to describe it. Easy check in with all questions answered.

  • Lucre and her airbnb were lovely. She recommended a wonderful restaurant. The beds were super comfy. The space is pristine. Wonderful visit.

    Dusty2017-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Three of us had a great weekend stay at Lucre's place. The suite was just as pictured- spacious, clean and comfortable and we enjoyed being able to sit outside and BBQ each night and have the dog run around in the fully fenced yard. Lucre was quick to respond to enquiries and we appreciated the early check-in and offer of late check-out.

    Nina and Darren2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Nicely appointed with amenities.

    Mary2017-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • We booked at the last minute and Lucre was very responsive. The property is beautiful with sweeping lawns and forest. The apartment is under the main house with a private entrance. It is well-appointed, very clean and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and our boys played with their children and dog. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and probably will if our kids get into a local school.

  • No need to book Cowichan Bay hotels anymore. Jordan's place is in brand new, super clean condition. It's incredibly convenient to Shawnigan Lake School. We were only staying overnight but everything is there for a longer stay - kitchen implements, dishes, flatware, basic cooking condiments, etc. The bed was very comfortable, there's a great shower, the location couldn't be quieter, there's covered car parking and Jordan was exceptionally responsive and welcoming.

    A short walk from the village and beaches. In the Cowichan Valley, there are beautiful hiking trails, fabulous wineries and excellent dining options. Near to Shawnigan Lake School, Brentwood College and Dwight International. and 50 km from Victoria.
  • Very beautiful home, lovely neighbourhood, quiet and private. We would visit again.

    Judy2017-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Warmland House was way better than we expected! After arriving very late at night, Marilyn, the caretaker was there to greet us and to make sure we were comfortable. The suite is so clean which is a very big deal to me. Not a speck of dirt, dust or any sign of wear and tear. It is appointed well with nice linens and bath towels. The bed....oh so comfortable, and the sheets smelled good! They don't provide breakfast but they made sure our refrigerator had yogurt, pastries, juice and milk and coffee. This is our first time using airbnb so we had no idea what to expect! I would certainly come back to the Warmland House. The caretakers wanted to be sure we were comfortable, offering a space heater if we needed (which we didn't) . The little town of Shawnigan Lake is quite small, but there is a fantastic little coffee shop. We didn't try the bakery since it wasn't opened in the early mornings when we were there.

    Brent2016-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying here and it was even nicer than the pictures. It was amazing value being close to Shawnigan Lake. There were some lovely surprises like some apples/snacks, water and juice. And it was nice and clean - crisp sheets to fall into. We appreciated it - thank you very much Carmen.

  • 初のAirbnb の利用でしたが、期待を上回る滞在となりました。 ビクトリアより車で30分ほどの郊外にあるお家を探すのに多少の苦労はありましたが、ホストのカルメンさんに温かく迎えて頂き一安心。 案内して頂いた部屋は写真の通り素晴らしいモノで調度品など趣味の良さを伺わせます。冷蔵庫にはクッキーや果物、ドリンク類も用意して頂き、まさに至れりつくせりです。 ネット環境ではwifiも使えますし、シャワーやエアコンなども全く問題ありません。ベッドも非常に心地よく眠る事ができました。 今回の旅行では、「現地の人とのふれ合い」をテーマにしておりましたので、カルメンさん、ニックさんの協力は大いな助けとなりました。特に、娘が楽しみにしていたハロウィン当日にはカルメンさんの子供たちに同行させて頂き、まさに本場の「trick or treat」を体験する事ができました。 他にも美味しいカナダのサーモンを御馳走頂いたり、お土産まで用意頂いて一家共々感激しております。今回は残念ながら天気には恵まれませんでしたので、次回は是非気候の良い夏に訪れたいと思います。

  • 房东想的很周到,我到的时候她已经在房门前等候,居住期间,也经常询问我是否需要他们的帮助、是否帮我带食物,我想租辆车,他们热情地说可以带我去租车公司,她的朋友还帮我叫了出租车。非常感谢他们。房间很干净、舒适、安静,周围环境也很好,不远的地方有小饭馆、小吃店等,非常方便。

  • We were at Shawnigan Lake for our daughters rowing regatta and needed weekend accomodation close to the event site. The private suite was perfect for us - very private, quiet, immaculate and comfortable. Everything looked brand new and fresh and it was Obvious that there had been attention to detail; hair dryer, iron, coffee maker, ample bedding, shampoo, conditioner and soap in shower. Also, the mini fridge was stocked with milk, water, juice, yoghurt too. Fruit and granola bars were left for us too! The bed was super cozy and there was a sofa bed for our son. We were very happy for the weekend and it was very convenient to the rowing and Shawnigan Lake School. Overall, would recommend!

    Beverly2016-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, nice room with very comfortable bed in quiet, residential neighbourhood. Close to lake, but not too many restaurants nearby. Perfect for our needs. Thanks Carmen!

    Sandra2017-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Carmen's space was very nice. Clean with homey touches and attention to detail. It is not large - just the bed, pull out couch and desk with a bathroom. But everything was comfortable. A bit of a view to the mountains out the front window. The entry way and patio do not really offer outdoor space where you would want to spend time, but the beach was just a five minute bike ride away and it was perfect. If you're on bike, you might want to know that the neighborhood is on top of a pretty steep hill on both sides, so it's a good climb to get up there! Carmen provided a bit of a lift breakfast which was a nice touch as we headed out on our biking journey. Would stay again!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Ezio's Eaglenest Sanctuary (aka "Riverside Vacation and Workshop"). It is an amazing property in terms of beauty, privacy (no traffic or neighbor sounds at all), and overall atmosphere. We especially loved climbing into the custom-built outdoor hot tub (which was not listed among the amenities on AirBnB, even though it was mentioned in the longer description) after a wonderfully refreshing and warm outdoor shower. Our group of 9 were in the hot tub numerous times during our visit. We also swam (very briefly!) in one of the river "swimming holes" before running back through the woods to Ezio's tub. With sixteen (!) beds, there was plenty of space for all of us, although the configuration is a bit odd -- there is a queen and a double and then lots of singles (including a bunk bed) distributed throughout five bedrooms. We also greatly enjoyed the cedar sauna, which was comfortable and smelled very good. Our kids played outside and, when it rained, indoors in the recreation/meeting room, which is big and has natural wood columns. The dining room fit all of us easily. The living room might have used a refresh of the furniture, but it was fine for us. The kitchen likewise could use a wee bit of TLC and some newer pots, pans, utensils and appliances. But everything worked just fine and more than served our needs. We loved being a mere ten-minute walk to the Kinsol Trestle Bridge, which offers walking and biking trails and spectacular views. Ezio was a wonderful host who showed us his herb gardens, old growth forest, and various spiritual spaces (the place where groups built a traditional First Nations sweat lodge, for example) on the property. When a storm felled a tree that took out a power line, he was on the scene within minutes and had arranged a full repair within a few short hours. Ezio is kind, accommodating, helpful and not at all intrusive. Our long weekend stay was everything we could have wanted, and much more.

    Lincoln2016-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place is magical! Tucked away in the trees, next to the Koksilah river (and a few minutes walk from the Kinsol Trestle), Ezio's place is as relaxing an escape as you can imagine - and has a hot tub, sauna, and swimming hole to boot! Highly recommended for larger groups. Ezio is friendly and easy to work with. Note that the rooms vary widely in # of people they accommodate (one has five single beds, another one queen, another two bunk beds, etc).

    The house is well set back from the main road and at night there is no light or noise pollution to disturb the peace. There is natural wildlife, including birds, deer, frogs, ducks, and squirrels that call our neighborhood home.
  • We stayed in this wonderful home for a month in Jan. 2012. It was clean, comfortable and beautiful. Everything we needed for an enjoyable stay was provided. The bed and linens were nice and comfortable. Heated floors throughout the house even kept our toes warm when it was cold outside. We caught up on some fun movies from their collection and the kitchen was modern and all of the dishes and cooking supplies we needed were there for us to use. The entire house was thoughtfully prepared for guests and we honestly couldn't think of a negative thing to write. The scenery around the house was just gorgeous. Huge, towering trees jutting up into the sky all around the house and a babbling stream running next to the driveway made for a truly memory filled stay. We saw deer out of the living room and kitchen windows almost every day to our delight. At night it was blissfully quiet too. The island is a wonderful and picturesque place to explore. Interaction with the house owners couldn't have been better. They were attentive and we could tell that the genuinely wanted for us to have a good stay. We would love to return again one day and would in a heartbeat.

  • My husband and I travelled to the lovely Cowichan Valley to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary this May. We really enjoyed the suite we rented from Kim & Paul. The home had a beautiful kitchen with a comfortable island where we enjoyed our meals and sipped wine bought from one of the many local vineyards. The bed was absolutely comfy and with the window open at night we could hear the mama deer and her fawn rustling in the brush around the house in the moonlight. We took a 3 hour kayak tour of Cowichan Bay and explored the lovely Duncan farmer's market (a short drive away). We drank delicious latte's from Serious Coffee and at the end of a day's adventures, we were always very happy to return to our country retreat where we would enjoy a cup of tea and I would often enjoy a good book in the lovely tub (complete with provided bubble baths). Often late at night the sky is so dark you can see the twinkling stars clearly, and the location is very quiet and private. Thank you Kim and Paul for a wonderful time and a beautiful spot.

    Spacious, well appointed, one bedroom suite in upper floor of character house. Large bedroom has its own seating area; sitting room features a queen size sofa bed. Beautiful private garden area with covered BBQ and seating on your own patio.
    Private outdoor entrance from your patio leads to a space that retains much of the charm of this 1930's cottage, while adding the modern conveniences of air conditioning, washer and dryer and dishwasher.
    We are right next door to Oma's Bakery and Shawnigan House Coffee and Chocolate, both are gathering spots for local residents and visitors to the area. We are a short walk from Shawnigan Lake and the public beach. We are five to ten minutes away from the three private schools in the area; Shawnigan Lake School, Brentwood College and Dwight International School.
  • Lucky to stay in this house for a week with my family. Very good location, close to the beautiful lake and easy access to anywhere. The Kitchen is easy for cooking with everything. We really enjoyed. Thank you Grace.

  • Since Shawnigan Lake is a rural community, it was nice to be next to the village with the cafe and corner store. The suite has everything we needed for the weekend. Even though there's just the one induction stove, it heats up very quickly. With the microwave and toaster oven, it was still manageable to make food for 4 people. Thank you for a nice stay!

It is an excellent base from which to explore Victoria, the Cowichan Valley region, and the southern Gulf Islands. We loved having a place to come back to at the end of each day that was comfortable, spotless, handsomely furnished, and well-stocked. We were grateful for Grace's warmth, hospitality and flexibility. Highly recommended!

    The Modern Carriage House sleeps four comfortably. Master = Queen. Second = 2 singles. A stainless steal kitchen is ready for Gourmet meals with fresh BC fruit, vegetables, and sea food bought directly from the fisherman's boats and farm stands. A wood burning stove in the living space is wonderful to cozy up to in the cool evenings and enjoy a glass of wine/good book. A covered balcony over looking the beautiful property is the perfect place for your morning coffee and evening cocktail .
    Sitting on the deck down at the pond you may see an abundance of wildlife. Deer, fish, blue heron, bald headed eagles, mink, and numerous feather friends have been spotted many times. We are 5 minutes from Brentwood and Shawnigan Lake. 30 Minutes from Down Town Victoria.

    My place is close to Shawnigan Lake. You’ll love my place because of Of the seclusion, the light. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.
    Close to Brentwood College and Shawnigan Lake school. Close to major shopping areas. Many wineries and golf courses along with fishing possibilities. 10 minutes to Duncan and 30 minutes to Victoria.
  • My son and I stayed during the Shawnigan Lake Regatta. This suite is warm, charming and absolutely spotless! Our check in was smooth, quick... great host. The building itself is VERY well constructed, large sturdy timber stairs lead up to the suite. The building is situated in old growth forest giving it a tree house feel, a real slice of BC coastal landscape. The kitchen space is very well equipped, Gloria even supplied cream for my morning coffee! The bed was comfortable, crisp new linens. The sofa was maybe a bit too cozy, I actually nodded off instead doing some online work I had intended to do. Washroom has tub and shower and water efficient toilet. Again, spotless, not a dust bunny in sight. Would highly recommend staying here over any hotel and I would stay again in a heartbeat. Thank you Gloria!

  • I had a peaceful and quiet stay here while visiting family in the area. The suite is ideal for a single person or couple with a car. The property is located up a hill off Shawnigan Lake Road and is surrounded by trees. The suite is upstairs in a secondary building (i.e., not attached to the main house), accessed privately by sturdy, well-lit stairs. The kitchen is well-equipped with a small dining table, and there is a covered balcony for sitting or eating out. The WiFi was a bit patchy, but worked fine for email and web surfing. The bed is comfortable and the place is very quiet, other than bird calls and the distant sound of traffic from the road. The place was very clean and Gloria was a perfect host.

We loved that it is pet friendly and also has many amenities including a full kitchen with all the appliances and kitchen items we could need (as well as coffee, tea, and other food items). It also includes washer/dryer which was a nice bonus. I loved the wrap around patio. The host was very helpful and communicative, made us feel comfortable and welcome. And he has the sweetest dog, Bo. Overall, a great experience. Wish we could have stayed longer.

  • We stayed at Russell's place for an evening. We had a great time. Russ' communication before and during our stay was very good. It was a great location. Nice view of Shawnigan Lake, located close to the provincial park. Many amenities included to make the stay convenient and comfortable. I'd highly recommend this place.

  • Chris was really thoughtful and helpful and made our stay a good one. The view from the large balcony of the lake is gorgeous and the large full size kitchen with washer dryer was a real plus!

    Questo cottage pulito e accogliente, rinnovato di recente si trova su una proprietà privata di fronte al lago a pochi minuti dal Parco Provinciale Shawnigan e il sentiero Trans-Canada. Se si desidera rilassarsi in un ambiente boschivo tranquilla, o godere di passeggiate nella natura, attività in acqua, escursioni a piedi e in bicicletta o preferiscono le offerte urbane di Victoria o Nanaimo, questa posizione soddisferà tutte le vostre esigenze. Ci sono ottimi ristoranti e negozi all'interno di un 20 minuti di auto. 1 ora di macchina per l'aeroporto e traghetti.
    Abbiamo appena dato questo piccolo cottage un lifting. Tutto è dipinta di fresco, lavato, lucido e portato fino ad oggi in ogni modo. Non è uno spazio enorme, ma è ben equipaggiata ed ha tutto il necessario per il vostro soggiorno. E 'perfetto per due persone, ma c'è anche un divano letto, quindi un secondo letto è disponibile, se necessario. Se sei un appassionato di uccelli vi innamorerete seduti sul ponte ad ascoltare i merli ad ali rosse, le aquile calve residenti, le molte varietà di uccelli canori, e, naturalmente, a guardare i colibrì litigano sopra il posto migliore sulla alimentatore.
    Questa zona di Shawnigan Lake è idilliaco. Si trova sul lato opposto del lago dal villaggio, quindi non c'è alcuna attività commerciale per interrompere la pace e la tranquillità. Siete invitati a portare i vostri giocattoli barca o acqua. Possiamo anche fare un kayak a vostra disposizione. A 10 minuti a piedi lungo la strada, si raggiunge la pista di TransCanada, dove è possibile effettuare escursioni o in bicicletta fino al Lago di Cowichan a nord-ovest, o Sooke Lago, a sud-est. La Valle Cowichan è noto per le sue eccellenti produttori enogastronomici locali. Molti visitatori godono meandri lungo le strade di campagna in bicicletta o in auto, fermandosi a aziende agricole locali per i prodotti di stagione e il campionamento dei vini al alcuni dei grandi vigneti della zona. Se siete liberi di Sabato, una visita al Farmers Market Duncan dovrebbe essere sulla vostra lista - è stato votato come il miglior mercato in BC per diversi anni consecutivi. Se si sta visitando bambini in una delle ottime scuole private, siamo a 10 minuti dalla scuola Shawnigan Lake, a 15 minuti da Dwight scuola internazionale, a 20 minuti da Brentwood college, e 30 minuti dalla regina Margherita di.
  • Calvin and Amanda are perfectly lovely hosts. The cottage and the property are wonderful! Highly recommended. I will be back!

    Shelly2017-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect ending to 2016 and a great way to start the new year! Calvin was a very accommodating host and very friendly. A beautiful location, a warm host and a cozy place to spend the night. Couldn't ask for more.

    Emily2017-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at the Trail's End Cottage. We found the cottage to be extremely clean, cozy, spacious, peaceful, and private. It was very well-stocked, as a previous reviewer noted - which added to our overall comfort. The setting was beautiful as well - right by the water, and within a short walking distance of the Trans-Canada Trail (which we've enjoyed exploring!). Calvin and Amanda (and their super-cute dog Luna!) were gracious hosts who made us feel very welcomed. They were so kind to leave us treats such as cookies, fruits, and other food items waiting for us in the kitchen upon arrival. They even invited us to use their dock to access the beautiful lake. We had such a relaxing time at cottage, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful vacation.

    Sigal2016-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place and great hosts! The Place is ultra bright and clean, deco makes you feel you're a guest, not a client. Spending time on the dock facing the beautiful lake, and hiking around, great stay!

    Sebastien2017-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Cute and quiet little cottage. Perfect for us to just ha e a relaxing few days before heading back to reality. Luna was a treasure. Cute and very friendly dog. Defentily a place I'd recommend and if I'm ever back the first place I'd stay.

    Michelle2017-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Diese Gartenhütte ist ein echtes Juwel, ein perfekter Aufenthalt. Sehr freundliche Gastgeber. Für Menschen, die Ruhe suchen, der perfekte Platz.

    Ingo2016-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Calvin offers a comfortable retreat in this cozy, all equipped cottage. The bed was comfortable, kitchen had all the gadgets needed for any type of cooking, the cozy couch perfect for digging deep into a book. Calvin offered great tips on local hiking spots and attractions, and his house manual was a great guide as well. I hope to come back and enjoy more time in this great little get-away!

    Bobbi Jo2017-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • Calvin and Amanda have a gem of a property! Their beautiful lakeside home and a perfect place for a quiet retreat. The cottage was just as advertised and there was even fresh fruit, granola, and cookies when we arrived. We loved being able to launch our paddle boards from their dock and of course throwing sticks for their lovely dog Luna. Calvin and Amanda were great hosts and were available if we needed anything. Thanks for a great stay at the lake!

  • Meine Familie und ich hatten eine tolle Zeit bei Victoria und Ken. Das Haus ist in einem super zustand, nett eingerichtet und hat eine tolle Lage direkt am See. Wir wurden sehr freundlich von Victoria empfangen und haben uns sofort wohlgefühlt. Die Kommunikation und der Check in liefen reibungslos. Sehr zu empfehlen. Wir würden auf jeden fall wiederkommen.

    Fabian2017-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful place that is close to Shawnigan Lake, Mill Bay or Victoria. Very private and the view is beautiful. Victoria has done a great job with the little details. We totally enjoyed being in the water all day Lounging on a pool noodle, drink in hand and sub from subway for lunch. Totally recommend this place :)

    Naomi2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • I rented this location so my octogenarian parents could sit on a deck and enjoy the water view. They loved every moment. This is a stunning location surrounded by forest and lake. Victoria has made every effort to ensure that you want for nothing while you are staying at the 'Treehouse' and is truly happy to host you. If you decide to walk down to the water, prepare yourself for the hike up... and down! The drive is quite the grade (~15%!)! It is hard to believe that this lake destination is so close to Victoria. Will certainly stay here again if we need a restful get away.

    Joanne2017-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • What a gem! Gracious hosts and a lovely place to stay makes this a perfect getaway spot! Thank you!!

    Alix2017-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Victoria was an amazing host! Thoughtful, friendly, communicative! We loved the treehouse for the beautiful views, cleanliness and tasteful decor. Highly recommend.

    Jessica2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • The most beautiful place and friendly people. We didn't want to leave. Thank you for such a wonderful stay and for being so welcoming. If I could give you 6 stars I would!

    Anna2017-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Victoria's place was great. The directions to the place and the photo she included of the driveway was very helpful. She was fabulous to deal with and was very prompt with getting back to me. The view from the deck was beautiful and the place was nice and clean.

    Elly2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Victoria and Ken are great hosts. Friendly and welcoming. They accommodated our early arrival and made sure we had everything we needed. The suite was clean and comfortable with an amazing view. The dock was perfect and where we spent most of our time. We are already planning on coming back again next year.

  • Cannot say enough good things about your home. Fit our needs perfectly and Laura was an AMAZING host. Thank you for all you did to welcome our group and send glasses that we left behind!

    Carrie2016-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place to stay! There were 7 adults and two small children and we had plenty of room. The house was nice and clean and it was so great to have use of spices and kitchen gadgets, etc. highly recommend!

    Jane 2017-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Laura was very warm and welcoming on our arrival and responded to any questions we had very quickly via text. When I booked this spot and saw the photos online, I thought it might be too good to be true but the house is truly gorgeous and extremely comfortable. The area is wonderful too with Shawnigan village (we spent time at the local bakery/coffee shop), Old Mill Park, Shawnigan Provincial Park and the Kinsol Trestle trail all close by and worth checking out. This spot would be amazing for a family or a group of friends as it is very spacious and you can cook and serve your own meals in the gorgeous kitchen and then go out to walk, hike or just hang out at the beach or park. There are also some great restaurants in the area if you don't want to cook! People with boats can also enjoy water sports on the lake. I used to live in Shawnigan and it was wonderful to return for the weekend to celebrate a special event - a retreat from the big city of Victoria! We really enjoyed our getaway.

    Beverly2014-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Laura greeted us at the house and was very welcoming. Yes it is the entire house!!!

    Melanie2014-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • I will recommend if you are looking for a big and comfy house with a great host like Laura.

    rajnikant2017-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • Laura was a wonderful hostess - she was always a text/phone call away. The house is massive and modern. It is within walking distance from many restaurants and it is conveniently located a few minutes from the main island highway. I would highly recommend staying at this house. It is extremely spacious, clean and welcoming.

    Liz2015-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fabulous 2 week stay at Laura's beautiful and well equipped house in Shawnigan Lake. We loved the location because it was just a few blocks from the lake and the charming township of Shawnigan. The house was even nicer and bigger than it appears in the photos. Our children happily played in the large back and front yards. And when we were indoors due to the rain we very much appreciated the upstairs TV/playroom. It's truly a "bonus" room. As a mother of three I particularly loved the big, bright master bedroom with comfortable king bed and it's bathroom with radiant floor heating and giant bath tub. The kitchen/dining room area is elegant and spacious and perfect for either entertaining or for a quick coffee and snack. We highly recommend Laura's house to all.

    Jacqueline2016-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay. The place is clean, spacious, warm and cozy. Both Laura and Nathan were extremely helpful and I would definitely return for my next trip to the south.

    Fully furnished and self contained suite on a small organic farm in Cobble Hill B.C. One bedroom with a king sized bed plus a double futon (pull out couch). Full bath and kitchen. Close to amenities, Wireless internet, private entrance and deck.
    This suite is on two acres in a rural setting but fairly close to most amenities (grocery stores, pharmacies, liquor stores, doctors offices, hiking trails, golf courses etc.) I think this suite would comfortably fit up to 2 adults with a couple of smaller children.
    I love hiking to and swimming in the natural quarry (a short distance away). Also, within a short driving distance another beautiful sight is the Historic Kinsol Trestle (part of the Trans-Canada Trail). Great for walking or bike riding. Cowichan is also known for it's vineyards, there are plenty within a short driving distance. For more info about the area check out this utube video: once upon a day in Cowichan
  • So far 100% of my trips have involved farm animals. An urban girl needs to get away once in a while, even if it is for a specific purpose such as a wedding. My only regret is that I didn't get a chance to stay longer

    Stevie J2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay, and would return in a heart beat. It was everything that she promoted. There was even milk in the fridge and kicking horse coffee (roasted in our home town) when we arrived. Our son loved waking up and saying good morning to the chickens and alpacas from our private deck. Lovely stay.

    Jillian2015-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Loved the cats and horses. Marion: best host ever. Thanks so much.

    David2017-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • My experience with host Marion was truly great; she was quick to reply to my emails and phone calls, the suite was very clean and cozy, and Marion was helpful and accommodating during our 3 nights and four days stay. My partner and I enjoyed cooking and baking in the beautiful kitchen, reading books and watching movies on the comfy couch, and sleeping soundly in the King! Size! Bed! This place is a gem, don't hesitate to book a stay there. Marie & Jacob

    Marie2015-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Marion is a very likeable, accomodating host. The attached rooms were very comfortable and beautifully presented.

    Jim2015-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • I had the most wonderful stay. Marion was very kind and friendly. She provided fresh eggs from her chickens, the best local coffee, and other breakfast treats! The bed and linens were comfy. The kitchen is adorable with everything I needed to prepare meals. The suite was very clean. Being on her organic farm was just the best! I would recommended this stay and I hope to visit again!

    Leah2015-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Marion welcomed us warmly and we immediately felt at ease. We were delighted with the privacy of the suite and the location. The country-style decor was eclectic and tasteful. Marion provided absolutely everything we needed for our two night stay, including a wonderful assortment of breakfast foods (eggs from her chickens, bread from True Grain Bakery, homemade jam, fruit, fresh coffee to grind). We were very happy! The kitchen is very well-equipped. The king-sized bed has lovely linens and was most comfortable. We really enjoyed the cool atmosphere inside, as it was very warm weather. It also felt lovely to sit outside on the very private patio. The two alpacas (or llamas?) in the field and the chickens were a treat to watch! And we loved the extremely friendly orange cat! We appreciated being able to park right outside our door. Marion made extra certain that everything was perfect for us. All in all, a great place and a great experience.

    Wendy2015-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Marion made us feel so welcome, and also had wonderful suggestions for things to do and see in and around the area. I would happily recommend Carbonear House to anyone who is looking to stay in the area.

    A two minute walk from the home there is a very cute coffee/chocolate shop and a bakery, although we offer our own organic sourdough :) The lake is under a 10 minute walk and is great for kids and dogs. The closest beach offers a volleyball net and picnic bench. The suite has a nice sized living room, large shower and stays nice and cool in the summer! Outside of the front door there is a fenced in area where you are welcome to keep your pet(s) or relax.
    Shawnigan Lake is within the Cowichan Valley, which is a great place to come if you would like some relaxation and some quiet. The valley is also a wonderful place to visit if you are interested in food and wine. The climate is great for grapes, apples and other fruits so the wineries in the area produce high quality wines & offer tastings mostly year-round. Although we do not have a lot of restaurants in Shawnigan Lake, there are some great ones 7-15 minutes away. The valley is a major organic food producer and much of that food goes to larger nearby cities, but the community here is warm and cares about sustainability and food.
  • Lucia is a great host to have! We had a more spacious suite than we expected so we were pleasantly surprised :) Lucia was so kind to provide filtered water for us for drinking and making our coffee, in case the flavour of the well water was not satisfactory. In our suite we also had a full sized washroom for showering and getting ready. There was plenty of parking space as well as a small fenced area for our dog to roam in. We took advantage of the nice large tv so we could watch a few classics on DVD in the evening :) Shawnigan Lake is a perfectly cute and calm little place to stay while on vacation. Overall it was quiet and relaxing and we would definitely stay again!

    The space has a comfortable living room and a bedroom with queen bed. A private bathroom with marble tub. Mini fridge and microwave as well as coffee and tea making appliances. Sorry, no TV, but we do have wi fi and a DVD player.
    This room has a private entrance, private sitting/reading room and separate bathroom with full bath. We also provide a micro wave and small fridge as well as coffee and tea making equipment. We are right next to some great hiking and walking trails on Cobble Hill and minutes from some of the best of the Island's restaurants, wineries and coffee shops. A short walk gets you to the Cobblestone Inn, a quaint traditional pub. This is a quiet and restful place to get away from it all.
    This is a quiet rural village. Yet it is within a half hour drive from Victoria and near both the ocean and a beautiful inland lake, Shawnigan Lake.
  • A nice quiet stay while visiting Shawnigan School. John and Corrie were very nice and accommodating. Space is very private with everything as advertised. Thanks! .

    Ann2014-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • When I first came into the house, I'm like... wow, this room is perfect for me to stay. It's just 200 meters away from my work place and everything seems in great condition. During the 4 days, I just feel like at my home. It's the first time I try to use a tub rather than a shower. Wish the downstairs part of room could have shower to take in the future:-) John and Corrie are very nice couple, they show me how to wash my clothes, how to lock the door, and also prepare delicious breakfast for me. Even though we do not have much chance to talk, I will try to stay here next time if I have chance. Thank you.

    Teresa2015-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • I feel very fortunate to have found John and Corrie's Airbnb! It was the perfect quiet space to come back to after watching my daughters team race at Brentwood college regatta. John and Corrie were very welcoming and had delicious home-made muffins for me. I enjoyed browsing through their library of books and both the living area and bedroom were spacious. There was a pub within walking distance. I would highly recommend!

    Jacqueline2016-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a perfect place for us. We were looking for a quiet place to spend our nights while visiting my son and his busy family in Duncan BC. Corrie and John's place was ideal. It was private and quiet and very attractive. We could come and go without disturbing our hosts yet they were kindly available to us when we needed anything. The place was very clean and had some nice Dutch touches that made us feel right at home. each On a scale of 0-10 this was definitely a 10. Much thanks to Corrie and John

    Ann2014-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • I booked this accommodation for some friends who were visiting from out of town. They were thrilled with the space and with their hosts. John and Corrie made them feel welcome and comfortable. The room was very clean and exactly what they needed. John was quick to answer my questions and respond to my inquiry. Thank you for making our friends so welcome!

    Phaedra2014-07-26T00:00:00Z
