Otter View Cottage Home

Waterfront cottage with kitchen and balcony
Secluded near the end of a wooded lane, this property provides a wonderful holiday get-away for small or large groups.
Relax in the hot tub and enjoy the view of passing whales and dolphins, cruise ships and ferries.

With a large veranda-like living area offering south western exposure, light warms the natural wood finish. Bamboo furniture and built in bench seats offer a unique flair. French doors open from the living room to the surrounding deck.
For chillier evenings, an airtight wood burning stove adds warmth. The corridor kitchen makes cooking a breeze. Three bedrooms and Two bathrooms provide ample accommodation for larger groups.

Year-round, you'll enjoy the view of the mountains of Vancouver Island, fantastic sunsets, and the twinkling lights of Campbell River. You gaze upon the main marine channel for the west coast, watching freighters, fish boats, ferries and other working vessels that regularly travel the waters of Discover Passage.
Or join the deer and wander the trails throughout the area.

Gorgeous View! Wonderful Host
Beautiful Place! Quick drive to the Ferry & very friendly host. Checking in was super easy. Eric met us at the grocery store near the ferry terminal (with his 2 beautiful labs) & showed us the way. It's about a 6 min drive & not hard to find. Roads get narrow though so you have to drive slowly. The view is amazing & the Cabin had everything we needed. We saw all sorts of wildlife, including orcas (twice) Wifi & internet connection was great. Eric was easy to get a hold of & very accommodating with any concerns/requests. He even had a gate made for the deck to accommodate our dog. (without us even asking, & was very appreciated) One day he brought us daffodils from his yard, which was so sweet. He was always a pleasure to deal with. Its not recommended to drink the tap water, but Eric Provided the 1st 2 jugs. We were there for a month so we refilled them ourselves at the grocery store. We were there during the off season (Spring) & the yard looked like it was in the process of being cleaned up for the summer, so there was a some untidiness but nothing that impeded on our experience. The dock & the ramp down need a little work & are quite slippery when wet. So would recommend caution when using. However, it was a great feature of the place & we used it to be picked up at when we went salmon fishing (Which Eric helped set up for us & Mark was a wonderful guide) and we chilled out on it a few times too. It was too cold for a swim while we were there. & the tide moves very quickly, like a little river in that spot. But you could us a SUP there if you wanted. The little island close by would be fun to check out. when the tide is slack you could probably swim around too. no ladder on the dock & no beach so just be careful. There are always seals, otters & eagles in the area, plus sea lions pass by often. The neighbors are really nice, & the Petersons' own a few other properties that they rent out along the same driveway. So you are not isolated, but still have tons of privacy & nature. Limited parking, but we managed to fit a truck & small SUV. April Point resort is close by. It was closed during our stay, but made for a really nice place to go for a walk & beachcomb. Be respectful & clean up after yourself (Dog/Kids). They are keeping tabs on the place & are very friendly & accommodating as long as you are respectful. Quadra Island is a beautiful place, with tons of hiking, places to eat, history, nature & friendly people. You wont want to leave.

quadra island
The house was not too easy to find even using gps to navigate . Host did not meet us . Locked out when we found it. Had to climb up on deck and go in that way. Very rainy and cold when we arrived. House was very cold when we got in. Had to figure out where thermostat was. Hot tub luke warm. The house was clean quite dated though. BBQ didnt work or dishwasher. The host did phone us back next day and sent somebody to fix hot tub. one set of keys to the door didnt work, so we were locked out again. So another climb up onto deck. more positive notes- lovely view from deck, very quiet and clean

Disappointing experience
I booked this property to spend my birthday here and it was a very disappointing and expensive experience. The hosts confused our check in date. The hot tub that I had specifically enquired about, did not work the entire 4 days of our stay. The host also only communicated through phone calls, which he wouldn’t always answer the phone or check voicemails until the following day. When I enquired about a refund for these inconveniences, as it was an expensive stay, VRBO stated that “we are an online marketplace that brings hosts and guests together. We are not involved in the rental transaction or the management of a property, and we are not able to mediate disputes between owners and travelers.” I haven’t heard from the hosts either….Ultimately, the fact that no one has taken accountability for any of these issues, is disgusting. I have stayed in many rental properties around the world and this has been the worst.

Loved the cabin, the host, and Quadra <3
When our ferry arrived Eric was waiting for us at the top of hill; he was convivial and led us to his beautiful spot at April Point. The view was astounding. Great place to get away as it was very quiet and private. Spent countless hours watching the seals and listening to the plaintive cries of the soaring seabirds. Erik was a delightful host who called a couple times to check on us, provided local info and was very accommodating when we needed help. Totally recommend!

Great cabin, much better than the photos! Hot tub stopped working half way through the stay but the wood stove made for a cozy time!

Great Stay!
We thouroughly enjoyed out visit to Quadra Island. The house, albeit a bit outdated, was clean and functional. The views from the stunning deck far exceeded our expectations. Beds were clean and comfortable. The pictures posted honestly do not do this place justice. Right down the road was April Point resort where we went and watched the sea places land and take off. A little further down the road was a lovely little marina hosting a number of different boats to admire. One reccomendation I would have is too have a little 'guide to the Island' or 'things to see on the Island' in the property because for first timers it would be helpful. Eric was fantastic, quick to respond and easy to get a hold of. We really enjoyed out family getaway.
