Comfortable and Clean
Stayed 2 nights with my wife in August. The place is very nice. Modern with nice finishes and carpentry. 2 nice decks and the hot tub a nice bonus. Clean and comfortable. Bed was comfy, ceiling fans were welcome. The kitchen had all major appliances and the BBQ grill outside was top of the line for those who like grilling. Our host Dean was quick to respond and was helpful and able to meet the requests we had. Home entertainment system & wifi were very good. One drawback however was that Chemainus road out front has steady traffic. Not a big deal but if you are looking for quiet and/or privacy it's maybe not the best place. Centrally located to many hikes and attractions and the ocean of course:) Grocery stores close by. The kitchen has no consumables, save salt and pepper, dish soap and paper towel so if you plan on cooking you will need everything (cooking oil, aluminum foil, any spices etc.). We enjoyed our stay but from our experience with VRBO's on the island and sunshine coast it was priced on the high side for the location and amenities, though not outrageously so. Could definitely do worse :) 4 out 5
It was a pleasure to have you both stay at the Sunny Saltair Seaview Cottage. Every year seems to be getting busier on Vancouver Island and yes the traffic is everywhere as we are in the middle of tourism season. I have lived on the island for over 40 years and have seen an increase of population. I don’t offer any consumables because of the health and safety standards so that is why I supply the basics. I do however sometimes supply crab which I catch out in the front of my property as well as herbs from the garden. There are two vegetable gardens when in season on the property which I usually offer to the guests as well. The Sunny Saltair Seaview Cottage is fully booked throughout the season because of what we have to offer.
Hot tub, full kitchen, dining room, outdoor dining area, access to fishing, crabbing, bikes, kayaks and more. I did offer the kayaks at no cost as I could tell you were on a budget and I really hope you both enjoyed them. I hope your experience elsewhere will be within your budget.
Comfortable, great view, great hosts
My husband and I and our 6 year old daughter stayed at Dean and Tracy's and were very satisfied. As shown in pictures, great ocean view from kitchen, living room and deck and we loved the hot tub. Clean, great location - grocery store a few minutes away along with restaurants, parks, ocean, etc.
Mellow home base with easy access to all the neighboring towns, ferries, airport, etc.
Dean was very helpful and available.
We will definitely be back and hope to make it out on a boat trip with Dean and Tracy next round!
It was a pleasure having you guys here look forward to seeing you again and wouldn’t mind seeing this area from the sky LOL maybe we can talk take care for now
It was so nice clean comfortable and hot tub was fabulous! Owner Dean and partner Tracey are so friendly and helpful!Hope we can return one day.
You are very welcome it was a lot of fun
Such a lovely little place!
Cozy home away from home
This is a great location for exploring the surrounding area. The cottage was charming, tastefully decorated and very clean. The kitchen was well supplied with all the cookware and utensils we might have needed. Loved the claw foot tub in the bathroom, and appreciated the abundance of shelving as well as extra towels. We spent much time on the front deck, with its table for two and attractive flowering planters, not to mention the hot tub, which made for perfect star gazing. We never did use the TV (too much else to do!) but definitely appreciated the sound bar for streaming music. The only thing I would point out is that the main house is directly behind the cottage, which is something to be aware of if you're looking for something on its own property.
Thank you for your review. The main residence is not behind the vacation rental. It is a studio that which I work from from time to time and supplies the bicycles and kayaks when renters need them.
Cozy, comfy with tasteful decor
Dean (or someone very close to him) is a master craftsman with style. This little home has been completely renovated, yet many of the original elements such as door handles, stove fittings and cabinet doors have been tastefully incorporated into the new decor. Very classy! Views through the many large windows are wonderful; trees, gardens and harbor views. After a somber sleep, we met wonderfully warm sunrises and hummingbirds each morning while making coffee. The house is situated almost perfectly between Nanaimo and Chemainus, our two favorite places to visit in the area. Shopping within five minutes and ample cookware. We had a great little mini-vacation here.
