“Wow! Such an absolute treat to stay in Fiona’s home. We were welcomed by Fiona, who was extremely easy to communicate with and gave us fantastic recommendations for the local area. Gabriola was easy to get to from Vancouver. An easy ferry, taxi, ferry. You do need a car ideally when on the island. The house was as described, on the shores of a beautiful bay. Very clean and inspiring art throughout. A great garden for exploring. We didn’t know there was a hot tub which was a great bonus. The island is hot on recycling - you have to take your waste off the island if you miss the fortnightly bin day. And the recycling centre is only open Wednesday and Saturday so time that in. Fiona did advise us to get to the ferry in advance - she isn’t joking. In peak season you need to be there 40 minutes at least before departure. Overall an amazing experience and fantastic home and host. Would recommend Fiona and welcome her family to our home. ”

“Well, we just had a great time. We are couples that have been getting together for the last 57 years. The November weather, which was iffy (there were a couple of beautiful sunny days) was not of great concern. Between Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, binge-watching Netflix, ample cheer and lots of stories, we were quite happy to sit by the fireplace. The home is beautiful, the beds were comfortable and the water view from the kitchen table is really something. Would you believe oysters from the beach, steaks on the barbecue, a warm and cozy environment and friends? Could it be better? I'd love to bring my grandchildren here in the summertime. Swimming, kayaking, and forging the beach for treasure - they would love it! Thanks for your attention and your hospitality. Cheers! Peter November 2017 ”
“Wonderful experience on a beautiful island, right on the waters edge. Stunning views and very homely. The children spent hours just discovering on the beach, inspired by all the seaside treasures that decorate the house. Highlights -the farmers market, jumping off cliffs and kayaking to isolated beaches. Fiona was great with her communication, everything was very clear. This was a very last minute booking and Fiona (luckily for us) was spontaneous and very flexible. Great time had by all.”
