Little Bit of Paradise
Seaside Casita Maple Bay is an awesome place to sit on the red chairs right on the bay and forget all your troubles. Very little need to leave this place for anything. Stop on your way in Duncan at the Fish Market, pick up some seafood and enjoy some wonderful meals cooked on the BBQ. Or visit Maple Bay Marina or Genoa Bay Marina for the best meals ever.
We would like to thank John for his hospitality for sharing his beautiful comfortable cozy home with us in our own private suite with everything you need. Just go, sit back and enjoy the bay.
Was a please to host you
Glad you enjoyed the fresh seafood on the BBQ. Hope to see you back soon
Wonderful place - wonderful setting
My husband and I arrived for a 4 day stay. We had a little trouble finding the place as I put Duncan in the GPS instead of Maple Bay...so with a quick text to the owners all was settle quickly. We were blown away by the beautiful view of the ocean and the nearby islands. The place had a great set up - lovely place to sit around and relax - at the chairs by the ocean on in the suite, at the table or in the chairs. The bed was great and the bathroom was good too. There was laundry but we didn't need it - but would be super helpful for a longer stay. John was very friendly and helpful and also a quiet upstairs neighbor. I'm not a great sleeper so really appreciated how quiet the place was. We also visited the nearby pub for beer and burgers, good food, good service and again that amazing view. My husband and I both agree we would like to come back and would recommend it to all of our friends. Colleen
We are super glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. It's always a pleasure to share this beautiful area with our guests. There is so much to explore on the island and in this area; I'm still finding new gems every day.
Hope to have you back with us soon.
Maybe an afternoon sail in the bay will fit into your schedule in the future!!
