Studio suite with spectacular ocean view - perfect holiday year round
Why Sherry Peterson chose Strathcona
The largest and most populated of the Discovery Islands, Quadra Island is nestled between Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia. Quadra Island is a popular destination for visitors from around the world, and is best known for its natural and beautiful wilderness scenery, and its excellent salmon and freshwater sport fishing.
What makes this Studio unique
April Point Studio is unique in that it is very private yet a 3 minute walk to world famous April Point Lodge & Resort featuring outdoor/indoor dining, spa, fishing, wild life tours, kayak and scooter rentals and much more. The mild temperate climate, rural lifestyle, pristine environment, breathtaking coastal scenery, and the friendly people of Quadra all add to the charm of Quadra Island. The diversity of people, professions, lifestyles and pastimes is what makes Quadra Island a truly great place to live or visit.

Quiet, comfortable with outstanding views and sounds of the changing tides
Couldn't have asked for much more, home was very clean, comfortable and quiet, with all the amenities you need. Could fill many photo albums taking pictures just from the patio. Day trips around Quadra Island were very enjoyable, especially Rebecca Spit and Heriot Bay. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will be back.
Steve was, without doubt, the tidiest, quietest guest I've ever hosted! Excellent, prompt communicator. On departure, could hardly tell the suite had been used. I will certainly welcome him for a return visit.
The room is well appointed, the view spectacular, the Island awesome, and the owner most congenital. What more could one ask for. We'll be back!
Great guests that I'll welcome back in the future!
Very clean and comfortable. Our host was amazing and made us feel very welcome.
This is everything you could want in a home away! Very comfortable and clean. Gorgeous views. Our host was gracious, helpful and welcoming. We enjoyed watching all the wildlife (bring some binoculars) and passing cruise ships from the deck. Every detail has been thought of - there was not one thing lacking.
You'll be happy to have these folks in your rental. They even fed my feral cat for me when I wasn't home!
Sherry was such a wonderful host. We had a great experience on Quadra island!
The suite was even better than what we imagined; perfect for two people! Bring your binoculars, lots of sea life to watch! Thanks for making Quadra feel like home Sherry :)
Super guests! Responsive, non intrusive, tidy, friendly. I would quite happily welcome this young couple again.
We were quite impressed with this apartment and its wonderful location.
What a great location for a vacation rental! We wanted to be by the water for the views, the cruise ships and the wildlife...and we got it all. Seals making themselves at home on the little island below, eagles calling from the trees on the adjacent island, humpback whales passing in front of us and birds flitting about in the bushes and trees by the patio - we enjoyed every moment of entertainment.
The studio setup was well-planned and the bed comfortable. One little problem, which crops up during the long days of summer, is the lack of venetians or similar protection from strong, hot sunlight beaming in through the large windows (including the transom windows above). I am sensitive to light and found I was having to wear my sunglasses inside the studio when the sun was at its brightest. This would also be an issue with the sun setting late and rising early, interfering with a good night's sleep, (unless I brought eye shades along).
Still - what a place! We would be happy to have a repeat visit here. Thank you, Sherry for your hospitality.
A very nice, tidy, friendly couple doing an impressive amount of hiking and enjoying Quadra. I'm not sure why they didn't draw the curtains to block the sunlight nor wear eye masks to bed if light prevents sleep. Here in the North, we enjoy the long days of sunlight since winter can get so dark with short days.
Great getaway place
This suite has an amazing view of the ocean, with seals on the nearby rocks. Everything was very comfortable and pretty. There are all sorts of thoughtful touches, like books and games, and the kitchen was well stocked. We would happily rent this again.
Friendly, tidy, thoughtful guests. They would be welcome to come again.
