  • Janet's place is very cute and comfortable. Janet and Kent were very friendly and really care about your stay there. Janet made soup for me when I had dental surgery ! This is a great place to stay and I highly recommend it.

  • We had a great time with Janet and her husband in Mill Bay. My 15 year old daughter and I stayed for more than a week. The landlords were extraordinary caring and helpful, my daughter could pet their cat and cute little dog, and they provided perfect tips for places to visit, when we asked for various activities. The flat is very nice, neat, modernly furnished and cozy, equipped with a comfortable bed, a new funished bathroom (good shower) and kitchen (fridge, capsule coffee-machine, microwave, mini-oven etc.) There was no need to us to cook, as Mill Bay offers all kinds of food in the evening and we were travelling around all day. We had comfortable outdoor seats and armchairs and could enjoy our coffee in the sun. There is a perfect walking or jogging route from the house along the shore southwards to the little ferry and First Nation territory. We are looking forward to staying there again!

  • This place was amazing to stay! The host was very thoughtful and kind, and even stayed up late to make sure we got there and found the place. It was very clean when we got there and had everything we needed. There was parking and it was not that far of a drive from Victoria. It was a great place to stay for our wonderful trip to Victoria!

    Nathan2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay. Kent greeted us when we arrived. The place was separate from the home so we had privacy. Cute little place that had a nice kitchenette. There was an outdoor patio where we spent a couple of beautiful nights. The ac was appreciated but was a bit loud. Summer mornings are very bright. Darker curtains would have been a nice option. Overall, we highly recommend. In fact, we have already recommended this place to friends.

Comfortable bed/furnishing, fully stocked kitchen, reliable WiFi, and super playful dogs. It was easy to find and in a lovely neighborhood.

    A lovely little house near the ocean. Situated in the trees, we are close enough to the ocean to have have beautiful views, privacy and rejuvenating ocean air. This is our home and not a rental property or hotel. You will have complete privacy with a large deck, bbq and fenced yard. The hot tub is on a covered deck so you can enjoy all year. We are dog people so your beloved pets will also feel honoured and restored in this space. Note: Prices include Canadian Good and Services Tax.

You have a beautiful view of the ocean from the deck and living room. There is a fully fenced backyard, fully equipped kitchen that opens onto the living room, 1 bedroom and dressing room and a second bedroom. The Kitchen is complete with gas oven, dishwasher, microwave and everything else you need to create a culinary masterpiece. Cable and Internet are included. There is Apple TV in case you miss your Netflix and Alexa is here to serve as your personal home assistant. This is the perfect place to relax. In the summer everything draws you outside and in the winter the wood stove provides a cozy atmosphere. The hot tub can be used all year round because it is under a covered deck. The closest beach access is one lane over (5 minute walk) although there are points of access to the beach all along Mill Bay Road. This is my home and not a rental property. You will enjoy the privacy this offers.

  • Joe's home was a wonderful place to stay in Mill Bay. The downstairs suite was much larger than we expected and we loved having the fireplace! We were glad to see that the TV had Chromecast, and the living room had a huge assortment of books. Joe's backyard is lovely with lots of thriving plants and wildlife (we saw a few hummingbirds!). The hot tub is a great touch for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. He was very accommodating and let us check out an hour later, and was very considerate in sending me a message the day before to tell us how to check in. I would not hesitate to recommend Joe's home!

  • The cottage is beautiful, cozy and quaint. The bed is super comfortable, the tub amazing, and the view of the garden made for a restful environment. As noted in the listing, there is no cooking amenities or refrigerator, so it's not really set up for cooking but we made do with a camping stove and simple meals, which was just fine for us. Would definitely go back! Kate and Ronen are super nice and great hosts.

The composting toilet was much easier to use than others we’ve come across :) A great place to overnight while travelling through the area.

We are also 15 min walk to the international school.

  • Maria and Gleb's place is absolutely amazing. There is a parking spot right outside the separate entrance, and the basement suite has many amenities. The place is very clean and stylish and even has a projector that you can set up your laptop with to play movies! Kitchen has all the basics, and it has a fridge with a small freezer compartment. Bedroom has a nice desk and a large walk in closet, and ironing equipment was there to keep my dress shirts pressed. Maria and Gleb were fantastic and very helpful. They were always very quick with responses and were very helpful. Overall amazing stay!

  • A lovely place in a quiet location close to everything that we needed at Shawnigan Lake. Gleb and Maria were lovely hosts. Maria came out of her house to meet and welcome us to their home. When the snow hit, Gleb and Maria were out clearing snow and making sure that we had everything we needed. This is a hidden gem that we will definitely book again when we visit Shawnigan Lake in the future. Thanks for being wonderful hosts!

  • This is a great place to stay . It is close to the village in Shawnigan. We enjoyed the suite as it was very clean, new and had everything needed to be comfortable. The projection big screen tv was cool and came with a selection of movies you could watch from the comfort of a roomy couch. The kitchen had everything we needed to make simple meals. We saw turkeys in the yard too! This place was good value and the hosts were very responsive.

    Kristane2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, sheet pans, and cutlery to cook during the stay and there are grocery stores close by for all ingredients.

  • My boyfriend and I recently stayed here and loved it! It’s an older home but the suite has been completely renovated and is beautifully done! Because it’s a little older, the walls are thin and you can hear people moving around a bit but it didn’t bother either of us at all. There are lovely views down to the lake and we had baby deer eating the grass right out the door! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciated the suggestions of things to do and the close proximity to amenities in the area.

The location was perfect for our plan to dine at The Bridgeman’s Bistro in Mill Bay and then to take the ferry to Salt Spring Island the next day! The view of the bay was lovely from the little outdoor area and we walked on the beach just down the road at low tide. She made it easy to arrive and provided every amenity ! The place was very clean and nicely decorated. Great stay! Arlene and girls

    Arlene2019-08-05T00:00:00Z

  • The coldness has set in earlier than expected at the time of our visit to Shawnigan Lake. I love the area and community since my first visit in September this year. Nancy’s place is easy to find, so welcoming, comfortable, private, clean and warm. We were so impressed with the provision of fruits, milk, yoghurt, apple juice, ready to drink chocolate and oatmeal, we even got a little chocolate treat. yum! We made ourselves at home in no time! Great start of the day with excellent breakfast choices, so satisfying! The most comfortable bed and couch! It was a shame that we were in such a rush that we couldn’t feed the alpacas! If I’m ever in the area again, I would choose no other! We will be back next year with my girl Nancy!

  • My first experience with AirBnb. The property was stunning and the hosts were welcoming. I had not read the description properly thinking we were getting a room separate from the family home which kind of surprised me sharing someone's home. They made such an effort to make you feel comfortable and welcome that my worries were quickly alleviated. Beautiful place to stay with such warm hosts.

  • What a cute little gem of a place! We went glamping in Julie and Gord's trailer for Family day and we had such a great experience! They had a bunch of wood cut for us to have two nights of campfires, their place is spotless and full of everything we needed. Julie even went above and beyond and offered our kids muddy buddy's to wear to roam the property! they were so wonderful offering up their help for anything we may need during our stay. We will absolutely be back! Road noise as mentioned in other reviews was honestly not noticeable at all to us. Thank you for a wonderful stay, quite possibly the most kid friendly place we've ever been to yet! 🤗

    Lori2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Julie and Gord are amazing, and their place is wonderful. Very comfortable and private space, but they are available and very quick to communicate. Had a little issue with the awning that was fixed before we even knew it was a problem. The property is beautiful, and is a very nice place to hide away if you are exploring the island. We didn't find the road noise to be annoying at all. Will absolutely be back! Thank you again for everything!

    Emily2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • This little air bnb is wonderful and this is my 2nd time. Everytime there is more and more little touches added. Cant wait to go back again

    Donna2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is the first air bnb that we've been to and we enjoyed it more than any hotel. Location was easy to find, well equipped with anything you could need. Road noise was not an issue for us. We will definitely return and will definitely reccomend it to others.

    Donna2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • First time renting a trailer and was pleasantly surprised at how great it was. The space was comfortable, trailer was very well appointed and the location was fantastic. The hosts were very thoughtful and quickly responded to all of our questions. There is road noise but that wasn’t a big deal with fan white noise. Wifi was problematic at times but with such a beautiful area who would want to be on a computer anyway:) Thanks for everything Julie and Gord!

    Elizabeth2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We quite enjoyed our stay at Julie and Gord's trailer. The trailer was clean, homey and well stocked. Despite being close to the road, the location felt very private and we liked that. We barely noticed the sounds from the road.Julie was very nice and communicated well with us. She responded very promptly to our enquiries and was a pleasure to chat with. If I'm ever in the area again, I would definitely stay again.

    Audrey2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Had a really wonderful time at Julie's and Gord's place. It was our first time RV experience and it was perfect, highly above our expectations. Julie and Gord are great hosts, always ready to help and provide valuable tips for local must sees, and their hospitality was just beyond words. The site is private, with area for the kids to play, many toys are provided. Location is great, walking distance to Mason beach, coffee shop, pizza place. Highly recommended, would come back anytime!

  • This is the second time I’ve stayed at Alexandra’s place - it’s absolutely immaculate, with great linens and towels.

    Marlaine2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • This accommodation was in a convenient location. Very clean and nicely setup with ease of access. It was a quiet and lovely treed area. It is located close to the Shawnigan Lake school, Kinsol trestle bridge (Cowichan Valley & Trail) and hiking trails which were amazing, Unsworth vineyard & restaurant as well as the Meridale Cidery and Distillery. Overall, a lovely area!

    Kean2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as described. Easy entry. Great location. Felt like home.

    Claire2019-09-29T00:00:00Z

    Rachel2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • - Parking on property in a quiet residential area - Separate entrance with keyless entry - Spacious basement suite for 2 people - Super clean and tidy with essentials provided - Netflix! - Just be mindful when cooking and/or taking a shower, ensure u turn on the fan (might even open the windows and door) so the smoke alarm doesn't get triggered, it's quite sensitive.

    Eva2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • I really liked this Air Bnb - it was private, and a very nice layout. Essentially, it’s a one bedroom ground level apartment with a good sized bedroom, kitchen and living room. The bathroom is great - a nice high shower head (sometimes a problem for us tall folks) and fabulously fluffy towels. Everything is sparking clean, and there is a nice calm aesthetic throughout the space.

    Dayel2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This was perfect for visiting family in Duncan and having a private space in the woods. I would recommend it a place to hang your hat for the night.

    Chris2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Brenda and Ich’s cottage was perfect! They left a few goodies from the farm, which were delicious and were very welcoming when I arrived. The communication was excellent and the place was everything I was looking for. A fantastic location so close to a great Cidery and winery and centrally located for biking around the area. Plus really nice touches, particularly the map that they left for guests to use. Very handy when my GPS wasn’t connecting!

    Justin2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful cottage and although I wasn't there much of the time it was nice to come home to with cleanliness, coziness and secure. The cottage and the surroundings are a beautiful place to get to call home - even for a two week period. You won't regret staying here.

    Gayle2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cute little place with an excellent kitchen and great location. Brenda and Ich were great hosts!

    Emily2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful spot. Peaceful and secluded, yet close to local activities. We stayed here while preparing for our wedding and were so happy. The bed was super comfortable, and the full kitchen made everything convenient and cosy.

    Grace2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • A weekend getaway with my husband was all the more delightful staying at the Giving Tree Cottage, under the attentive eyes and thoughtful gestures of Brenda & Ich. Grab this place if you are lucky enough to find it available. Clean, spacious, comfortable, and nice linens too. Complete kitchen stocked with cooking utensils. No hesitancy in recommending it.

    Kymn2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Brenda and Ich's place was exactly as expected. Great location, lovely place, extremely responsive and respectable. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you'd need for cooking; even has a dishwasher. Nice quiet location, but close to anything you need. Would love to come back.

    Cobble Hill, BC, Canada

    This quiet, private cottage is conveniently located in the middle of Cowichan wine country. The central location means that many activities are just a short drive away. Within a few kilometers of the cottage you can hike on the the gentle slopes of Cobble Hill mountain, walk the waterfront at Cowichan Bay or take a wine tour at the many vineyards nearby. For more athletic endeavors there are two golf courses a short distance away and world famous mountain biking nearby too.
    We like to think of our cabin as quieter, more private, cleaner and cheaper than a hotel. To see some of the local attractions that we visit follow us at https://www.instagram.com/gardenviewcottagebnb/
  • The little cottage was clean, cute and located in a very nice area. Only met Stu but he was very friendly.

    Julian2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Kimberly and Stu's suite is sparkling clean and very comfortable with special extra touches. The kitchen is well appointed and was even stocked with extras like granola bars and frozen waffles. The bed and linens were fresh and cozy. They were even so kind as to provide wine and an anniversary card! Their cabin is a well-organized, peaceful, home away from home. The surrounding area is great to explore. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Deanna2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great stopover location for visiting the island. The cabin is recently renovated and very well appointed with finishing touches that make it very cosy and homely for a couple. It’s very clean. The bed was very comfortable. The hosts were friendly and supportive. We were very appreciative of their thoughtfulness.

    Gwenda2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here a couple of nights. It was perfect. There was a cold bottle of wine for me in the fridge upon arrival! And snacks! The bed was so comfortable we didn’t want to get up. I went for a jog in the morning and the roadside was beautiful. The grocery store and coffee shop are so close as well. Definitely recommend this space and the homeowners are more then generous.

    Angela2019-08-03T00:00:00Z

I met Scott and he was really helpful and let me know if I needed anything at all he was available. He gave me tips on a couple of things. Thank you so much! I would definitely recommend Scott and Laura’s suite.

    Jade2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • My husband, one year old daughter and I had the most amazing stay at the Deep Cove suite. Scott and Laura were fantastic hosts, they provided us with great recommendations of things to do in the area. The suite was incredibly clean and modern and had all the necessities, including a pack n play and high chair for our daughter. The suite has so much natural light and is beautifully styled. The location is unbeatable - it is in a lovely neighborhood just steps from the ocean. We couldn’t have asked for anything better and will definitely be back to stay!

The house is located in a beautiful, quiet and friendly neighborhood, it felt like home. The views from the property are stunning and the short walk to the beach for the evening sunsets was a highlight for sure. The hosts were so welcoming when we arrived we knew we picked the right spot to spend the weekend. The fresh homemade granola was a nice touch as well. We will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Victoria!

  • It was nice. You can still hear car noise when you are outside from the roads around it. Inside is pretty quiet. Only was woken up once from someone upstairs. Really nice and well put together.

    Eric2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is beautiful! So quiet. The suite is very well kept and the hosts are quite wonderful people. Will definitely try and stay again if we need a place in that area. Also, the movie selection is great :)

    Justin2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a month here and it was paradise - nothing could've been better. The suite itself is lovely, so clean and well maintained, the most fully-stocked kitchen I've encountered in an AirBnB before, and very comfortable bed and furnishings. It was the perfect retreat to get away from the city and enjoy being in a more relaxing pace of life. The WiFi (which is important for me as I work from home) is excellent, super-fast and reliable. For a suite it is spacious, and the forest views out of every window are magical. The nights are so peaceful and quiet, and the hot tub is a wonderful touch. Shawnigan lake area itself is charming, and full of delightful little coffee shops and beautiful places to walk. We visited in the fall and the colours of all the trees changing was quite amazing. Wildlife spotting was a highlight - we were even lucky enough to spot a black bear wandering past our kitchen window one afternoon! The check-in process was smooth and easy, the suite had a guide book folder full of all the information (both on the accomodation, as well as the local area) that anyone might want. I would recommend this stay to anyone, and hope that sometime I will be lucky enough to return again.

    Anna2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is a little piece of heaven on the island. It is well appointed and comfortable. It literally has everything you need. There is lots of wild life on the property, from birds to deer and raccoons. It is in close proximity to lots of hiking and biking trails as well as provincial parks. Cowichan Bay and Mill bay are a close drive as are Victoria and Ladysmith/Nanaimo. Kim and Paul are lovely thoughtful hosts, they care for their land and their property so well and through their work they have created something really special. We will definitely be back.

    Lexie2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • I have stayed in the ground floor one bedroom suite for one month. It was perfect for my personal getaway, taking a break from noisy Vancouver. I enjoyed "living in the woods" a lot and will miss the quietness and wildlife walking/flying by my kitchen window! The place looks exactly like in the photos and communication with Kim and Paul has been very easy. I hope I will be able to return one day!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Kim’s place. It was sparkling clean, quiet, and had all we needed for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed exploring the area especially the bike trails.

    Sharon2019-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Kim and Paul were concerned hosts who went out of their way to make sure that my stay was comfortable. Communication was quick and easy, as was our check-in. I spent 4 weeks in their lower level apartment and it had lots of amenities as they described in their description of the place. The location was a little ways off of Hwy 1, but gave easy access to go to Victoria or north to other scenic areas on the island. I would recommend staying at this location for a few days to a few weeks if you want to savor what Vancouver Island has to offer.

  • We stayed for just over a month in this home and it was absolutely fantastic. The home was clean and well equipped upon arrival – everything we needed to prepare meals and stay long term. It stayed cool, even on the hottest of summer days, inside. The home is light, bright and private. The WiFi is fast, the bed comfortable and the nights are oh so quite. We loved eating breakfast while spying on wildlife. The wildlife that comes across the property in front of the large windows was amazing- owls, deer, baby quail and, if you are lucky, a black bear. The Cowichan Valley Trail is 1 kilometer away and was easily accessible, on foot, from the home. You will need a car to get groceries from here, but the drive is easy and beautiful. The best part of this place was feeling outdoors, even while indoors, and the beauty of the surrounding nature. Kim and Paul were excellent hosts that went out of their way to make us comfortable. They are genuinely good people working hard to provide an excellent place. We highly recommend this home and plan to return ourselves.

    Heidi2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Alison’s should place was a lovely getaway, the main floor is very spacious with tons of room to get cozy and relax with a book. The kitchen is updated and a great space to cook and hangout. We also appreciated that it had three bedrooms so every couple got a room to ourselves. The place is surrounded by forest so you feel nestled in the trees. Alison was quick to respond to any questions and the place was very clean and warm. I highly recommend staying here!

Very welcoming to our small dog and the home had a fully fenced yard. Melanie was very quick to respond and provided us with lots of information. Would definitely recommend.

    Lianne2018-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • Hi, I visited my son at Brentwood College. The location is ideal (<5min by car to the college) and very quiet. One evening my son and 2 friends came over to watch a game with Pizza deliverry -- great! But more than 4 persons would be crowded in the living space. The place is basically below the owner´s house. I enjoyed it a lot, Toby

  • Tom’s Place was perfect for our Vancouver Island getaway. We wanted a central location to not only explore VIctoria, but also the Cowichan Valley. The suite had everything we needed for our party of four to relax after a day of sightseeing, including a full kitchen, a BBQ, extremely comfortable beds, a lovely ocean view, a backyard, blackberries to snack on, and a lovely host. I highly recommend Tom’s place for families who are looking for a home away from home. Will definitely stay again when we are in the area.

    Deidra2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • We were over the moon with this Airbnb experience. The accommodation was more luxurious than advertised, there were thoughtful little touches, the setting wonderful. And the hosts Tom and Pennye couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. The wild blackberries and wildlife visiting the garden were free. We loved it.

    Jenny2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • An excellent, charming, clean and highly relaxing place with a nice view of the bay. Very peaceful and spacious. Excellent getaway spot. Would definitely return here.

    Jonathan2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful space, close enough to reach out if you need anything but far enough for privacy and space. The house, view and location are absolutely beautiful. A huge space with great amenities and good quality bedding and linen. I enjoyed a beautiful morning walk along the water just minutes from the property. Would book here again. Thank you for a pleasurable stay!

    Kimberly2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful landscape, neat house, warm host, everything is perfect

    Chen2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Pennye and Thomas's place is one of the top AirBnb experience I've ever had! The guest house is on the ground floor of a duplex house. However, since it's on top of a hill, the view of the forest and ocean is breathtaking. Throughout the day, sunshine pours into the backyard, and we all enjoyed just sitting and looking out. The home is very quiet and peaceful. So quiet that we even encountered some rabbits and deer in the backyard! The amenities were top notch, everything you need is there. Everywhere was sparkling clean. Pennye was so thoughtful, she provided a detailed local guide, and we all loved her recommendations. In terms of location, it was actually very convenient. 6 min drive to a big grocery store (similar to Safeway), 8 min drive to the ocean side. There's a wine/beverage trail up North, you literally drive 10min to 2 wineries (Upworth & Merridale) and a lavender farm. There are also lots of hiking trails within 20min drive. Can't think of a better place to stay on the island. We would definitely come back and would recommend this home to everyone!

  • Susan’s place was everything we expected it to be and more. It’s a beautiful property with a clean, bright and spacious basement suite. The coffee and homemade baking in the mornings was a nice added touch. We had all the privacy we needed and were able to stay only minutes from relatives. We are very satisfied!
