Our family stayed at Jean & Don's during our fishing trip to Port Alberni this summer. We found their home to be well stocked with all the amenities to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. Their house is very clean and beautifully decorated, it's very apparent that they put in a lot of pride and love in their home. Jean & Don were absolutely lovely hosts. We will definitely stay again if the opportunity arises.
Our reservation was unexpectedly cancelled two weeks before our vacation and we had to find other accomodation; very disappointed !
Our family had a wonderful week in Port Alberni and the found the home's location very convenient and central (our son was in a hockey camp at the Multiplex). The house is both comfortable and beautifully decorated, making our stay very enjoyable. The kitchen is very well supplied and we were able to use the BBQ and enjoyed some delicious meals. Don and Jean were gracious hosts and were available for any questions we had.
Had a great trip to Port Alberni. It is a very nice modern and clean home. Don and Jean were very friendly and accommodating.
Fabulous home for two couples, 2 beds 2 baths. Don was very welcoming,and keen to accommodate should you need anything.
Spacious home is a lot bigger than appears on the web site.
Great garden to relax in.
We booked accommodations at 7 different locations on our 2-week vacation to Vancouver & Vancouver Island, & this was the BEST by FAR!! The home & grounds are beautiful & Don & Jean are so pleasant & helpful. We wished we could have stayed the whole 2 weeks. DO NOT HESITATE-book now!
