“We had the most wonderful trip to Vancouver Island... and this was due 99% to Barbara and Costa's beautiful home. The island is stunning, but their house is simply fabulous! The kitchen was well-equipped, the beds comfortable and everything very easy to maintain. We went swimming every day from the bottom of the garden, and took the kayaks out- great fun. The bikes were also used, and we walked miles. Deep Cove is beautiful, and one gets a glimpse into the lives of the extremely wealthy! North Saanich has some amazing beaches and walks. Barb and Costa are very generous hosts, and we feel privileged to have been invited to stay.... Thank you so much! ”
“Barbara's house is gorgeous and immaculate. It's a joy to stay in - so light, spacious and clean. The view is amazing. It was such a nice place to relax and unwind in after a long plane flight. Barbara was fantastic to communicate with - very helpful and proactive. ”
“What a stunning house! We arrived late evening to find a group of sea otters playing in the water at the bottom of the garden and were entertained by seals thereafter during the rest of our stay. A bald eagle also landed in one of the trees in the garden at one point. A lovely comfortable well equipped house which you should definitely choose to stay in should you be looking in that area. We even kayaked around the cove which was very sheltered, from the bottom of the garden. Thank you Barbara!”
“What an amaizing place, such a beautiful location, stunning view. We loved our stay. Barbara and Costa are so easy to communicate with, this made our stay easy to arrange, and very enjoyable. Even though their home is a little remote, we managed to fully explore the area by bus. The local grocery store had all the provisions we needed, they also had great coffee! Getting to Victoria, was also easy, by bus, then a short taxi ride home. We would highly recommend Barbara and Costa's home to anyone visiting BC Canada. ”
“We stayed in Barbara and Costa's beautiful home for about a wek in June 2018. When we walked into the property, all we couls say was 'WOW' What a view and what a lovely home!!! The lounge, decking and main bedroom all have sea views. The house was immaculate and the main bedroon and en-suite were superb. Communication with Barbara was excellent and we would have no hesitation in recommending a stay overlooking Deep Cove bay.. As a base to explore Vancouver Island, it would be hard to beat!!

“This was by far the easiest swap i've ever done!Communicating with Barbara was so easy, swapping with her was a breeze, we felt very comfortable and safe in Barbara 's home, and most of all, they are very hospitable and accommodating to us.I call their beautiful garden, ' A Slice of Paradise'Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!Fondly,Rebecca ”
“Spent 8 days in this great property. Barb and Costa are excellent hosts with great communication at every step. Our kids loved the kayaks and the wildlife. The location is quiet and private and the house is immaculate (hope we left it ok:) The views can’t be appreciated from the images here, they are stunning.Thanks both for your hospitality.”
“Gerald and I stayed two weeks in this absolutely wonderful place. Every night while sitting out on the patio we saw eagles, (lots of) raccoons, deer and harbour seals and witnessed some of the most beautiful of sunsets. Cycled everyday, then returned to this paradise, to dip into cool water steps below the patio. The home is surrounded by an array of beautiful plants and a walk way down to the water. Barb and Costa are very generous people to share this stunning home...Truly! this is a beautiful home in one of the most beautiful parts of Canada. Thank you Barb and Costa...so much for sharing ...we loved our time there.. Linda (and Gerald ) ”
“An amazing house and position on the water. More than we expected. And Barbara's communication couldn't have been better. We'd like to go back for much longer next time! Kind regards Nathen and Alice ”
“Mahalo Barb and Costa! Right from the beginning, this was the easiest swap, from scheduling to completion. We had an amazing holiday at their home and Barb and Costa provided everything we would need for a wonderful time from kayaks to trail maps to directions to museums. Their house was warm and inviting and we felt comfortable and right at home the minute we walked in. We couldn't have asked for a better home to stay in for our three week holiday and Barb and Costa were always available if we had any questions. Just can't express enough how wonderful of a time we had and how incredible of a house swap experience this truly was. Aloha September 2016 Teresa and Ken ”
“A BIG THANK YOU to Costa and Barbara! The view is unbeatable and the house itself is beautiful and in immaculate condition! We had a wondeful time! Julie and Bruno”
