“Fantastic Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

This place is amazing! Cosy & welcoming, furnished with everything you will need. We stayed here for 2 weeks & loved every day. Although not far from the busy main road, don’t let this put you off, not once were we disturbed by noise. The large gardens, both at the front & back offer lots of privacy. Rupert the dog loved hiding & being chased around the gardens. Perfectly located within walking distance to a supermarket & Starbucks. We took walks through the woods & along by the river, & back up to the beach. Everything you need is provided, plenty of towels & linens, a really lovely welcome pack consisting of milk, bread, juice etc. – a really nice touch & very much appreciated. During our stay we were visited by deer, racoons & rabbits. We loved this place & were so sad to leave. Hope to return next year!

“Graet House and Location was excellant”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We travelled for a golfing holiday to Parksville to do the Golf Trail. We travelled with a couple and 2 single Men. The location was excellent it was so easy to get onto the freeways to go North or South.
It was a lovely surprise to receive a welcome pack when we arrived consisting of some breakfast cereals, milk, juice, muesli bars etc.
The house was very comfortable with 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms. The Vege garden out the back was perfect to pick tomatoes a few strawberries etc. It is only 2 blocks from a liquor shop and grocery store. Just Perfect. There was also condiments left in the pantry for us to use during our stay. Stacey was so easy to deal with. We played all the Golf Courses on the golf trail except the 9 hole course at Quadra. They are all lovely
courses. Even though we did not have any Children with us it would be an ideal property for kids with a swing and slide and a fully fenced gated yard. I would love to come back again someday
Thanks heaps Angela

“A Wonderful Vacation Home!”
Reviewed 17 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We were travelling as grandparents, parents and a three year old grand daughter as well as a miniature schnauzer. We were all delighted as soon as we entered the property. The home and yard were tastefully decorated and very well maintained. There was plenty to keep us all happily occupied both inside the 'nook' and in the very spacious yard when we weren't touring the island. Stacey and Lani were wonderful, welcoming hosts. We hope to come back soon!

Thank you for your lovely review! It's wonderful to hear that The Nook was a great spot for your whole family (including your dog). It's such a fantastic property for kids to safely play in while the adults can sit back and relax. We hope to see you back again soon.

“Very relaxing vacation”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stayed at the Painter's Nook with my wife and our four-year old son and this was one of our more relaxing vacations. There's lots of space in the backyard which was great for hide-and-seek and chasing my son around. There was also a bin of breakfast items in the fridge waiting for us, which we enjoyed. Best of all, the community park and the beach are only a few minutes away.

We're so glad you had a wonderful stay. We haven't tried hide-n-seek in the yard yet, but I think our 4 year old would LOVE that too - glad you were able to make such great use out of the space! We hope to see you back again soon.
