Nice place to stay!
We enjoy our time at Sensational de Paradisio! It was a little chilly when we first arrived. But Tonya was very kind and helpful. Thank you!
Our stay was very pleasant. You get the feel of a cottage in the woods without having to be miles from town. Our host was very accommodating and was extremely helpful with our needs. We stayed here during our time waiting for our new home to be constructed and it really helped ease the stress of the situation knowing we were in good hands in our rental. I recommend Sensational de Paradisio for short stays as well as long for its charm and location to the valley places of interest. Lake Cowichan is just down the highway, there are great swimming holes very close to the rental and Duncan is only 10 minutes away for any necessities you need. The location is quaint and quiet. Lighting a fire and relaxing in the evenings is very gratifying. We recommend you check out this great place to stay for your future endeavors.
Peaceful setting with relaxing fireplace
The property was as advertised and quite clean, fresh and well sited. Especially enjoyed the outdoor fireplace that we cooked our meals on, yumm! The surprise was the owners, a very friendly couple and quick to help us out when we had some small requests, thanks!
Hello we stayed for 5 days it snowed while we were here, was very beautiful with the light show down by the pool. Owners were nice, accommodating and very friendly. See you next year Ruby and family. Germany
Nice owners, lots of nice touches in the accomodations to make life more comfortable, quiet, quick response to queries, good wi fi, great price, totally clean.
Overflow Christmas visitors
First impression is of a lovely rustic setting with comfortable modern conveniences. Rental information on the website indicated smoking permitted outdoors only and towels would be provided for guests.
Perhaps the house had not been rented for a while, as the towels were decidedly fusty upon arrival and the supply of fresh towels was consistently inadequate for the 5 guests we booked. We ended up providing extras from our own home.
The website for Sensational de Paradisio resort indicates smoking is permitted outdoors only, but the VRBO hosts later messaged us that rental information "clearly" states smoking was not permitted within 3 metres of the buildings. it was a non-smoking resort, with a smoking area a distance away from the house, but there was nowhere identified as such. Although the VRBO hosts observed smoking occurring on the deck, they did not show anyone where they actually allowed smoking. As such we were charged $200 for damages. This seems like an easy money grab.
A malfunctioning thermostat made for an uncomfortable night when it could not be adjusted to a lower temp.
There is also a cute cabin which sleeps 2 on the site, which we booked ahead for friends on New Year's Eve. Again it appeared not to have been used for sometime as the taps yielded a mass of dusty cobwebs when turned the first time. The hot water only lasted long enough for a good shampoo suds, then an icy rinse had to be endured!
This property has wonderful potential, a fenced garden area with beautiful huge outdoor fireplace, and water features. Too bad about the points which merited a negative review.
Hello, thank you for the review as we appreciate feedback as we always strive for excellence and our customers stay is of the utmost importance to Tonya and myself. After we noticed the smoking we sent you an email advising of the smoking area where we have tables and chairs set up for our guests, we explained the area and showed the young couple who were here, we also advised there is no smoking in or near any buildings as it's a health code issue and all our suites are non smoking as were an Eco friendly resort. The smoking carried on every morning and throughout the day regardless of explaining this to your fellow guests who we're staying in your suite, we regretfully applied the smoking fee after day 5 as we have never had to do this before. The towels are changed every 3 days unless requested by our guests as most guests prefer this rotation to help the environment! We'd like to thank you very much for for staying with us and enjoying a lil part of our island paradise. Mike and Tonya
Our location is a reasonable distance from town. There are many nature trails to walk and beautiful scenic roads inland as well as Oceanside. The island offers many days worth of beautiful driving roads or ridding roads for those who prefer two wheels. In the summer swimming and tubbing in lake cawachin is a must do. Salt and fresh water Fishing is also very popular in the area.
There are many different activities and and must see locations, all within two hours of driving
