Great stay!
Stayed here with a few friends over Easter long weekend. Great stay in a very cute cabin. Host even set up the sleeping cabana for us to use for spring camping which was wonderful. Thanks Penelope!

Beautiful Little Cabin in the Woods
Very much enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Great use of such a small space; everything we needed was provided. Would definitely recommend this place and hope to be back.

3/5 Okay

Lovely for Summer
This place is not recommended for winter as the heat could not keep up and the pipes froze due to sub zero temperatures. The owner did give me a discount. Being that said, it was a lovely place. Pretty tiny, but functional for a couple or 1 person. This would be a great place for summer.

1/5 Terrible

Extremely Disappointed
This was an extremely disappointing stay, I have used vrbo/other similar sites countless times and this is easily the worst experience I've ever had. We arrived later in the evening and were shocked to find that the beds were not made up at all, which after a long journey to get there was extremely frustrating. The next thing we noticed is that the sleeping cabin had clearly not been cleaned recently, dirt on most surfaces, the glassware and most kitchen items were filthy and clearly unwashed. Then when we open the fridge to load groceries we find it is full of mold and also dirty and not clean. Moving to the bathroom, the claw foot tub was absolutely disgusting, again clearly not cleaned recently, which was a huge let down. Lastly the most concerning thing was an open electrical box with exposed wires sticking out on the wall directly above the bed, a shocking fire hazard for an all wood cabin. Upon messaging the host to bring up our concerns and to try and remedy the situation they ignored me completely and have not tried to make things right. Terrible experience all around, would definitely not recommend booking this property.

Lovely cozy cedar cottage getaway
We took our 2 kids and tiny dog with us for a 3-night family getaway filled with board games, exploring Saltspring, and home cooked meals, and this was the perfect place for that. Make no mistake, it's very small but that's also part of the charm. The cabin walls have that lovely cedar smell, the bathroom has a large deep tub with a bright skylight, the kitchen is extremely well stocked and the BBQ is large and brand new. We slept on the large bed area with our son (who prefers to cuddle so he was happy) and our daughter was happy to have the small single bed to herself. If you want a large roomy place, this isn't for you, but if you want to have a cozy space with plenty of character, then this is the place for you. It was also nice having plenty of extra outdoor space for eating outside and sitting on the covered halogen-lit porch. We'd love to come back again!
