    Meet the Tiny House in Crofton, BC. built with love! It has everything you need, Sleeps 2, bed is a queen size futon, renovated kitchen with all you need. BBQ with another burner for cooking, 3 piece bath. FREE Netflix! Your own outdoor area. Swimming pool May to Sept. Lots of spare parking. There is so much to do on Vancouver Island, read overview :) House is located in Crofton, not Duncan as airbnb states on booking. This area is all part of beautiful Cowichan Valley!
    Cindy is retired from Canada Post. I am always looking for something to do. So.... I decided to make the tiny house. It is built and my ideas are done with love , sweat and maybe a tear or two. lol I hope you enjoy staying here as much as I did building it.
    Our home is in a small town, but close to beautiful Victoria, BC(60 minutes) where the famous Butchart Gardens are, downtown Victoria has many many sites to see, spend the day there. There is many golf courses within short driving range, prices range from $40 to $70 CAD $. There is a fabulous Mountain bike trail 5 minute ride from here- Maple Mountain. We have two mountain bikes guests may use. In Crofton you may take a quick 20 minute ride on ferry to beautiful Salt Spring Island. Our street is quiet and all Properties are one to two acres. The neighbours are great and friendly, we moved here 7 years ago from Victoria and love it. Cowichan Valley is nice area with wine tours and if you partake there is quite a few Marijuana Dispenseries. Totem Pole carvings tour in quaint downtown Duncan.(10 min. from here) Chemainus has its famous murals as it's claim to fame(15 min. north from here). All close by. Cathedral Grove is a great day out. See some of the largest trees you can ever imagine, a protected area with 1st growth trees :) Also Mt. Washington is just over 2 hours away is you like to ski! Also there is a Bird sanctuary about 5+ minutes from here- RAPTOR Centre , if you enjoy large birds its worth checking out.
  • The space was cozy and felt very safe. We had everything we needed, and Cindy gave us our space but she was there if we needed anything! I highly recommend this adorable tiny home.

    Vanny2020-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great once again!

    Grace2020-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic tiny house with everything I needed for a comfortable stay. I enjoyed the hummingbirds, quiet neighbourhood, and unique shower. I crossed 'shower in a wine barrel' off my bucket list! Great hosts. I recommend and I'd definitely stay again.

    Grace2020-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • Cindy and Marty are Amazingly hospitable host just like you would expect from Locos in Vancouver island! They treated me like part of the family, gave me everything I needed a bath and beyond service! I will stay with them over and over again anytime I come to this part of the island This little side has also has a spectacular garden behind it as well as steps away from Forrest with endless trails one of which leads to the ocean and a long beach as well! Paradise :-)

    Aleksandar2020-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Bilbo’s tiny house is fantastic! The rain hitting the skylights lulled us off to sleep.. a perfectly restful getaway! The shower is super cool, and the whole house is perfectly laid out, so although small, it was totally perfect for two people without feeling cramped. Highly recommend! Was tempted to book another night! Cindy was a great attentive host. Very clean with lots of notes how to use everything :)

    Sarah2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay at Mario and Betty’s lovely spot. The place was once again spotlessly clean and perfectly appointed, and all the thoughtful touches, (a little Christmas tree, mince tarts, and all the food essentials in the cute little kitchen) were so appreciated!

    Toni2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed at Mario's place several times now. It is so clean, comfortable and private we always feel quite at home. It is well equipped for breakfast and Betty provides a generous supply of breakfast items. The location is convenient too, there are stairs directly to the seafront just across the street and the town cafes are also within walking distance. I highly recommend Mario's for anyone wanting to stay in Crofton.

    Lorna2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • The suite was as advertised and better. Clean, well appointed with all the breakfast choices we chose. All communication with Mario and Betty quick and the check-in was very smooth. The suite was just perfect for us. The separate entrance allows for easy and quiet coming and going. Thank you for the little extra treats and the Christmas tree.

    Amanda2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Christopher's place is close to Downtown Duncan and was really cozy and convenient. I stayed here with my husband, toddler, and parents and was nervous it would be squishy, but it was surprisingly spacious and family friendly. We really appreciated the big toy box and large kitchen table. We could not hear neighbors or traffic (as other reviewers had mentioned).

    Kayla2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • I was really impressed with this Air B&B. Very convenient location and plenty of space that felt very comfortable. I read some reviews that complained about noise but that wasn’t an issue at all for me. Thanks for the great stay!

  • Everything is great... perfect location, decent price, pretty much everything you need for a 5 people's stay (personally we prefer to have a microwave for quick milk/left-over heating, but not a big deal). Owner is very responsive and friendly. We are very happy.

    Jeff2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay! Definitely coming back to stay in Christopher's place.

The hot tub on the gorgeous patio was truly a highlight, and the perfect place to enjoy the stunning garden and ocean views. Margie and Rob were so warm, friendly and helpful, amazing hosts. We felt very lucky to have spent the last 2 nights of our holiday here, but we so wish it could have been longer!

  • Andrew is a superb host and went over and above to make sure I had everything I needed. A beautiful area and a great, quiet place to stay. There were even deer munching on the grass outside my window as I sat overlooking the lake and worked. I would definitely return.

    Ellen2019-11-13T00:00:00Z

    Marilyn2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Andy’s place is like living in a nature habitat. We saw otters, heron, frogs, bunnies by the dozen, brazen deer, geese and more. The train from the Forest Discovery Center could be heard and seen during the day. The visitor’s center is right nearby too. The room is spacious, the view is stellar and a full sized fridge/freezer was handy to have.

    Maël2018-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Andrew is a lovely host who understands the balance between friendly communications and respect for privacy. The facility is lovely with the pool table and other amenities. The ability to make coffee and having a fridge meant that we did not need to rely on restaurants completely which allowed us to save a few dollars. ( a microwave would have really been appreciated). I have stayed at many in home BnB and I can say that this is one of the top 10 percentile but at a more than reasonable price. Great value for money, great location, great host....what more could I ask for?

It was perfect for 2 people to enjoy and in a great location for all of the activities we had planned in and around the Duncan area. This Airbnb was recommended to us by a friend, and we would happily recommend it to future guests!

    Hello~:-) This is an old building with quite decades but it is quite neat and well managed by manager’s dedicated touches. The carpet of room, hall floor, sink, bath tub are new. The neighborhood of this building is quiet and easy to access to the grocery store, convenience store, and a small cafe. Also this place is just 20 minutes away by walk from the Duncan downtown but still in the peaceful atmosphere so you could relax after the trip.
    The bus station(#2) is right in front of the building from downtown.

    ~gst is included~ The tiny seaside sleeping cabin and bath house is very private with a double bed down and a single in the loft. There is also a desk, table, chairs and more. The private heated washroom is 20 steps away with a toilet, sink and large bathtub,and now it also has a mini fridge/hot plate/utensils so that you are not needing to come in to the farmhouse at all. The island is presently offering delivery for many food offerings.
    a quiet private space to relax and plan your activities on Saltspring. This is a smart-metre-free environment....wireless connection is available outside but inside is wired only, providing corded connection. You may sleep better this way!
    located in "West Ganges", the farm is tucked away in a tidal inlet where the evenings offer a quiet night's sleep. Guests can aim for all the popular spots from this central location. A moonlit canoe ride has become a favored activity with the magic of effervescence in the paddle strokes through the still waters of the inlet. Cyclists enjoy the convenient location, yet those on foot are best to consider the bus system to get around, or rent a car, moped, or bike.
  • Beautiful and cozy. Loved the roaming horses and bathhouse.

    Mariia2020-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • THIS PLACE IS INCREDIBLE. Seriously. The most lovely place. You get to wake up beside the ocean, which is shallow enough to take a dip in either by moonlight or in the morning. There’s a big (super clean) bathtub in your private bathroom, big enough for two people to enjoy. The host is generous and lovely, and you can hang out in your little sleeping cottage or go into the farmhouse for a fireside hang, get some work done or prepare/eat a meal. There is a lot to explore on these beautiful grounds - we enjoyed feeding carrots to the horses, and seeing eagles and other birds. I can’t wait to stay here again.

    Kirby2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful, got to visit the chickens and horses, and have a gorgeous view on the morning. With the option of a lively canoe in the morning. Fresh breakfast is fantastic. Will stay again.

    Darrian2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place ideal if you are looking for a relaxing weekend or a romantic get away. Breakfast is delicious and the view just breathtaking. highy recommed it

    Carolina2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet, peaceful, magical. Such a special place. Cozy sleeping area with comfortable beds. The water is right there making it feel like nature is tucking you in! The bathhouse with the natural light streaming through made for the best place to relax in the water. The perfect place to deeply relax and enjoy the experience of the island.

The main town is 5 minutes (driving) from the house where you will find the Saturday Market and all the shops. The house is on the public bus route so if you are cycling this is a great option.

    Great location if you like being close to oceanside villages. This updated, private and well equipped suite is minutes to both Maple Bay and Crofton. If you like to hike or mountain bike Maple Mt. and Mt. Tzouhalem are also close by with amazing trails and spectacular views. The Cowichan Valley is home to many boutique shops, vineyards, breweries, farm to table restaurants and quaint pubs... some just down the road. Come enjoy in comfort, at your own pace.
    The suite is located downstairs in our family home. It has a separate entrance and parking area for two cars, giving plenty of privacy. Inside there is one bedroom with a queen bed and TV with lounge chair. There is room for an air mattress or crib if needed, it would be cozy, in order to accommodate small families. The main area is a large kitchen with full stove, fridge and dishwasher, as well as a dining table for four. A full bathroom with tub/shower and the necessities. There are plenty of closets and storage and access to a shared laundry room. To be clear there is no living room. It is a nice space of 700 sq ft, much bigger than hotel rooms, with all the comforts and more. The property is over 2 acres and Richards Creek runs through it. You will hardly have any neighbours in site, it is peaceful country living. Perhaps except for a chicken letting us know she has laid an egg!
    This is a great location to set up as base for exploring. The beach is 5 minutes either direction driving. Maple Bay has a fun Scottish pub with gorgeous views, kayak rentals, as well as good restaurants in Genoa Bay. Crofton has a couple pubs, a sea walk, ferry access to Salt Spring Island and a small grocery. Close by attractions include the Raptors Centre, Hand to Man Museum, Saison Vineyard, Alderlea Vineyard and two great mountain biking destinations. There is so much to discover in the outlaying communities in the Cowichan Valley.

    Hannes2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Bob and Kevin are terrific hosts, and yes, the space is as clean as it appears in the pictures. The location, with its pond, garden, and rural feel is perfect for relaxing or using as a peaceful home base from which to tour the area (e.g., Ladysmith, Cowichan Bay, Nanaimo, the many wineries). The amenities are fine, and the room has access to Amazon Prime; our first night the internet connection was spotty, but there were DVDs to choose from, and the following three nights there was no problem with reception. We were lucky to happen to be there on the weekend of an amazing antique show that Bob alerted us to, and we also visited Kevin's huge antique store (barn) just up the road--fantastic!

  • Beautiful home on the lake. Joan is an excellent hostess and has through of everything you could want for a home away from home. Lovely addition of home made bread, farm fresh eggs and local Jelly was an added bonus. We enjoyed the canoe, paddle boards, a visit to Salt Spring Island, and of course the hot tub! Lovely, relaxing getaway.

  • This was our second stay at this lovely cottage. It was very comfortable and felt like a home. The house was clean and well appointed. The view is gorgeous and we very much enjoyed watching the ferry, eagles and sailboats from the deck while drinking our coffee in the morning. Beach combing at low tide was also quite fun. Our host was warm and friendly.

    David2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Joan's house is beautiful. My family had an amazing time on the patio, watching some whales and enjoying the hot tub.

    Rodrigo2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Joan’s home has something for everyone: beautiful views, plenty of outdoor living spaces, comfort, amenities and many special touches. It was a wonderful escape.

    Thom2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 14 days in this beautiful house and we enjoyed every minute of it. The house is very well equipped, from comfortable beds over Gas-BBQ or the huge hot tub. There was nothing we missed. In addition it has a lot of details which made us feel home from the very first moment. As the weather was very nice and warm we spent most of our time at the beautiful sun deck, from which you have a fantastic view to the sea. We loved the direct access to the water and using the canoe and paddleboards that were provided. Canoeing with seals around us was an experience we will never forget. Vancouver Island is a beautiful place and there is a lot to do. Whale watching was one of our favorites. Joan is a fantastic hosts, who is always available to support but at the same time leaves you all the privacy you want. Thank you Joan. We had a great time.

    Markus2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Wonderful accommodations, location and breathtaking views. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we booked a second vacation at this location. Thank you Joan for such a wonderful experience :)

    David2019-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • My family of four made plans to travel to BC with my in-laws (who had never stayed in an airbnb). Well, this place has spoiled them for future Airbnb stays! They couldn't believe how hospitable and comfortable staying at an Airbnb could be. The property is accurately described, but it also has the intangibles-it just feels like home. Joan and Mike have provided all you will need to relax and enjoy your stay. In fact, it was hard to get out and see the sights because it's also tempting to sit on the vast decks and watch the world go by. We did manage to see Victoria (an easy hour drive), go on amazing hikes ( just minutes from the house), and explore the nearby towns. Additionally, we loved using the canoe and paddleboards that were provided at the house. Five days was just too short to really see everything we wanted to see, so that means we'll just have to go back. My children are already asking to stay with Joan and Mike next time, and my husband and I in complete agreement. From comfortable beds to fresh baked bread and farm-fresh eggs to a clean hot tub that afforded lovely evening views, Mike and Joan's place had it all!

    Christina2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovingly maintained older home with lots of character. Comfortable for our group of 4 adults and 2 kids. Lots of thoughtful touches, and Joan was very accommodating and helpful. Beautiful evening sunsets.

  • Sterling and Kristie-Anne were very friendly and welcoming. Their place is gorgeous and sparkling clean, and we appreciated the free upgrade as the other room was unoccupied. We had plenty of space and privacy and they had great suggestions of where to eat. Breakfast (as others have said) was outstanding. Top air bnb!

  • An Airbnb gem. Stunning scenery and a comfortable, clean place to stay. Deeply appreciated the thoughtful touches of milk in the fridge for my tea, tips for catching the ferry, hiking recommendations and a seamless check-in. The unit has a private entrance and you have the entire floor to yourself which includes 3 bedrooms- it’s much bigger than I expected. You also have 2 private outdoor areas which I even enjoyed in the cool weather. One highlight of the trip was being unexpectedly close to Maple Bay which was a short walk from the unit and provided the most beautiful, peaceful views. I also appreciate that they welcomed my pups too, complete with doggie bags handy for use by the front door. I truly did not want to come home. Thank you Kim!

    Christy2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Would give 6 stars if we could! We just loved this space, and would have stayed longer had we not had life to get back to... the views are just epic, and everything about the place just said “Sit back... relax... you’re on the island now.” Kim was there to greet us and offer a few pointers, and then we were just able to settle in and get so comfy. Wonderfully comfortable beds, great balconies and decks, a small kitchen to prepare easy meals, and a great location for our family to jump off and spend a couple of days in Cowichan. Highly recommended!

    Ian2019-08-23T00:00:00Z

    John And Barbara2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Super great hosts! Everything you need. Completely quiet, yet located next to everything. Comfy bed, cool, romantic bedroom, great shower, nice deck with views of the water and mountains. It is also, right off the great trail so we could take our pooch on walks yards out the door. The space is completely private and we walked to a brewery and restaurant right down the hill. Absolutely loved the RIOT brewery, not only really good beer but we could bring our dog since they don't serve food. Reminded us of traveling in England and taking our dog into the pub. We had no idea where this place was but were intrigued by the description of the place and pictures (which honestly don't do it justice). It is large and has wonderful views. Do yourself a favor and book this place.....you won't be disappointed!

    Pamela2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

It has a spacious bedroom/bathroom, has privacy, is close to food/town, comfy bed, soft linens, and we appreciated the special touches like creamer, coffee, natural bath products, and nice cutlery. Carlos and Collette were fast to respond and easy to chat with. We would certainly recommend their place to others.

Remember, this is an addition onto our house and as such is not a completely cut off and separate apartment. We love hosting Airbnb because we get to meet so many wonderful people. There is a connecting conservatory; this is where you have your breakfast, with a view out over the bay. There is a microwave oven, fridge, coffee maker and kettle; we provide a Continental breakfast of home made granola, croissants, home made jams, and yoghurt, and we will wash your dishes! (There are no other cooking facilities, but you can do a lot with a microwave and a toaster.) The door to our kitchen connects us to our guests so that we can serve the breakfast, clear the dishes and make sure that everybody is happy. On the lower floor is a pretty bedroom (with a queen-sized bed) looking out over a landscaped garden, with a view across the sea to Salt Spring Island. The morning sun comes up over the Salt Spring across the sea, and when the moon is up, it shines into the bedroom window. Next to the bedroom is the full private bathroom with shower. A hair drier is provided, as well as towels, soap, shampoo etc. An iron and ironing board is available. On the top floor is the living room, which doubles as a dance and art room, with a large open wooden floor, with a big screen T.V. and DVD player. High speed internet in all rooms at approx 500mbps download speed. 2.4 and 5g. We too love to travel, and have stayed in some wonderful homes through Airbnb; we are sure you will enjoy your visit to our house, and the friendly Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island. We are within one hour's drive of the capital city of Victoria, and close to Duncan, Nanaimo, Cowichan Bay, Chemainus and its murals, Lake Cowichan and Salt Spring Island. (The ferry to Salt Spring is only 10 minutes away). The West Coast and Tofino are within reach on a long morning's drive. There are a dozen wineries in the Cowichan Valley and several golf-courses within a 20 minute drive. Kayaks are for rent in Maple Bay. There are whale-watching tours in Cowichan Bay (mention that you are staying with us and you will get a 10% discount), as well, the ancient lawn tennis club (est.1887), is about 12 minutes away. 5 minutes away is the wonderful Pacific Northwest Raptors where you can learn about beautiful birds of prey, from eagles to vultures, as they free fly in front of you. There are many hiking trails close by including a visit to the spectacular Kinsol Trestle in Shawnigan Lake, an old wooden railway trestle over a rushing river. There is a regular seaplane service flying in to Maple Bay; a quick 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver. There are also local public tennis courts just down the road. Maple Bay is a very quiet village about 8 kilometres from the local town of Duncan, the City of Totems. There is a bus service to Duncan. Deer on the lawn, racoons sneaking around at night, and even an otter has checked out our swimming pool! The house is on 2 1/2 acres and is surrounded by about an acre of landscaping; lawns and flowers and rockeries and the swimming pool; you can use it all. Behind the house is Maple Mountain Park and its hiking trails. A short 6 min.walk down to the local pub and tennis courts, or a short drive to excellent restaurants, several by the water where you can sit on the patio and watch the boats, others in town or at the wineries; a great choice from cosy and cheap to high end and classy! We look forward to meeting you! Please tell us a little about yourself. Airbnb verification and a nice photo of yourself is very important and a great help...... We teach Argentine tango locally; lessons are available in our house for $40 per hour. and a half. We love to introduce people to our passion for the REAL tango! The swimming pool, blasted out of the bedrock, is yours to enjoy and SHARE with us.(Unheated, but warmed by the sun, and normally not in use until May). It is mostly a natural rock pool and therefore has some underwater promontories...take care.
    We've lived here in Maple Bay for over 45 years, and have traveled to most places on Vancouver Island, but we have never found a place where we would rather live; we think this is the prettiest area of all, and the little town of Duncan (10 minutes away) has all the facilities that we need. It is a short walk to Maple Bay beach and its Pub (The Lion Rampant), and there are other fine restaurants within a 15 minute drive, including the lovely Genoa Bay Café. Living on a very quiet dead-end street, with a beautiful view of the sheltered sea, gives us a wonderful peaceful life.
  • My husband and I wanted to get out of town for our 6 year date anniversary and this magic spot was exactly what we were looking for: quiet, removed, spacious and close to nature and inspiring as this couple built this dome home from scratch and we would love to do something similar one day. Fantastic views, lovely ambiance in the tango room, very cosy and warm with the wood-burning stove, croissants and hot cross buns were a nice touch. Bed was clean and comfortable, towels were fluffy and we hiked Maple mountain and Tzouhalem which both have networks of beautiful trails. Check-in and out was easy and communication was always prompt. Thank you for a lovely stay John and Linda, and for letting us share a little piece of your gorgeous home.

  • This is such a special spot, you should definitely go visit. John and Lina are extremely welcoming, and have fantastic stories about how they built their home. Very inspiring! They had lots of tips for the local area, which was very helpful. The stay itself was extremely comfortable, and the rooms are stunning. We very much enjoyed the breakfasts too!

  • 10/10 recommend staying at John and Linda’s place, its a MUST! Their home is beautifully built with amazing amazing views of the water and mountains, great decor indoors, plus cozy resort-like outdoor area with pool and gazebo. John and Linda were fantastic hosts with quick responses, easy check in and out, local tips, area with maps with things to see or do, fresh baked croissants in the morning, tour of their home, and their stories (like how they built the house themselves! With the trees they cut down on their lot! Amazing!) We only stayed for one night but wish we would have booked longer.

  • Absolutely perfect for our very first Airbnb experience. Friends had recommended the Amazing Dome to us as they enjoyed their stay so much and we were not disappointed as it was exactly how they described it. John and Linda were excellent hosts making us very welcome. We particularly liked the warm croissants for breakfast each morning. Very interesting and different property, beautiful bays to visit nearby, a good pub within walking distance serving good meals and a pleasant bar/restaurant at the nearby marina. Raptors nearby was enthralling, farmers market in Duncan really good and Chemainus worth a visit too, all suggested by John and Linda, thank you both for such a great visit.

  • John and Linda are superior hosts! We love talking with them, they are very nice and lots of interesting stories. Everything else are more than prefect.

    Betsy2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • The Amazing Dome is an extraordinary place to stay. John and Linda are wonderful hosts, so generous in their knowledge of the area. This may just be the very best place we have ever stayed in our travels. The views from the balcony overlooking Maple Bay are breathtaking.

    Wendy2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for only one night and it wasn’t enough!! It was an excellent night, though! It was very comfortable and filled with amazing artwork, most done by the host, Linda! From walking to the pub for an excellent dinner, sitting out by the pool with some drinks after, sleeping in a fabulous comfy bed, waking up to a lovely breakfast, to a morning swim in the pool, we couldn’t have asked for more! Definitely would stay again! John and Linda are super lovely!

    Tara & Craig2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • The nicest place we have ever visited! We are still enjoying the stories told by the owner and the beauty of nature out of their dome-style house balcony!

    Duncan North Cowichan, BC, Canada

    Our lovely bachelor flat is located on our quiet and private hobby farm situated on 12 acres surrounded by a golf course. Minutes from Duncan, and within an hour's drive of Victoria and Nanaimo we have a great location to enjoy a relaxing stay.
    Self contained bachelor apartment located adjacent to our heritage farmhouse. Peacocks wander the property, sheep and lambs are in the fields, and fresh farm eggs are available daily.
    This is a tremendous spot for foodies. The Cowichan Valley is well known for its farms and vineyards where all manner of locally produced organic foods, wonderful award winning wines and spirits, craft breweries and amazing restaurants are available. Coupled with an extensive weekly farmer's market, some lovely local attractions, boutique shops in the downtown area and the best climate in all of Canada, the Valley is not to be missed!
  • Amazing host. Amazing spot to relax. Will come again

    Jason2020-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • A place for the thoughtful traveler....

    Jason2020-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely loved the chickens, peacocks and sheep!

    Liz2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Susan and her husband were very welcoming hosts. And their dog is super friendly too! :) The space is perfect for a quiet Cowichan Valley getaway - it’s in a lovely rural setting but it’s still quick to get into town. The listing was very accurate.

    Amy2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had such an amazing stay. Susan and his husband are great hosts. The place is beautiful too.

    Guadalupe2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Everything is perfect. Sue is so nice and I love their dog. The room is lovely and it had everything that I need.

    Emily2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely studio on a small hobby farm very close to Duncan. The host Susan was very welcoming and helpful. If you're following the Trans Canada Trail and are looking for great accommodation right along the trail - this is it!
