    Susanne2020-03-06T00:00:00Z

  • Ideal place for one or two people for a visit to beautiful Duncan, BC.

    Amanda2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Christopher's place is close to Downtown Duncan and was really cozy and convenient. I stayed here with my husband, toddler, and parents and was nervous it would be squishy, but it was surprisingly spacious and family friendly. We really appreciated the big toy box and large kitchen table. We could not hear neighbors or traffic (as other reviewers had mentioned).

    Kayla2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • I was really impressed with this Air B&B. Very convenient location and plenty of space that felt very comfortable. I read some reviews that complained about noise but that wasn’t an issue at all for me. Thanks for the great stay!

    Ryan2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Feels a lot more roomy / big with amount of openness to the house, nice place to stay at in Duncan because it’s right in the heat and super nice host too !

    Brandon2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Everything is great... perfect location, decent price, pretty much everything you need for a 5 people's stay (personally we prefer to have a microwave for quick milk/left-over heating, but not a big deal). Owner is very responsive and friendly. We are very happy.

    Jeff2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay! Definitely coming back to stay in Christopher's place.

    Tom2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Maria and Gleb's place is absolutely amazing. There is a parking spot right outside the separate entrance, and the basement suite has many amenities. The place is very clean and stylish and even has a projector that you can set up your laptop with to play movies! Kitchen has all the basics, and it has a fridge with a small freezer compartment. Bedroom has a nice desk and a large walk in closet, and ironing equipment was there to keep my dress shirts pressed. Maria and Gleb were fantastic and very helpful. They were always very quick with responses and were very helpful. Overall amazing stay!

  • A lovely place in a quiet location close to everything that we needed at Shawnigan Lake. Gleb and Maria were lovely hosts. Maria came out of her house to meet and welcome us to their home. When the snow hit, Gleb and Maria were out clearing snow and making sure that we had everything we needed. This is a hidden gem that we will definitely book again when we visit Shawnigan Lake in the future. Thanks for being wonderful hosts!

  • The cottage is beautiful, cozy and quaint. The bed is super comfortable, the tub amazing, and the view of the garden made for a restful environment. As noted in the listing, there is no cooking amenities or refrigerator, so it's not really set up for cooking but we made do with a camping stove and simple meals, which was just fine for us. Would definitely go back! Kate and Ronen are super nice and great hosts.

    Alexandra (Sasha)2019-10-10T00:00:00Z

  • A beautiful and cozy space with a lovely tub, reading collection and view of the garden. Easy to access as it’s not far from the highway. Lots of much appreciated touches like good coffee, bath amenities and the beautiful accordion! The composting toilet was much easier to use than others we’ve come across :) A great place to overnight while travelling through the area.

    Marycon2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • The coldness has set in earlier than expected at the time of our visit to Shawnigan Lake. I love the area and community since my first visit in September this year. Nancy’s place is easy to find, so welcoming, comfortable, private, clean and warm. We were so impressed with the provision of fruits, milk, yoghurt, apple juice, ready to drink chocolate and oatmeal, we even got a little chocolate treat. yum! We made ourselves at home in no time! Great start of the day with excellent breakfast choices, so satisfying! The most comfortable bed and couch! It was a shame that we were in such a rush that we couldn’t feed the alpacas! If I’m ever in the area again, I would choose no other! We will be back next year with my girl Nancy!

    Hi, I’m Karen! I have left the rat race and moved to the incredible Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island. I wake every day to the sounds of the Van-Isle rainforest and watch fish jump in the lake. I want to share this with you. Read further for all the incredible amenities prepared for your arrival.
    I named the property Misty Pake after my family came to visit. My father asked if I had a Pake or a Lond??? He said “ It's to big to be a pond and to small to be a lake…so is it a Pake or a Lond! I decided right there is was a Pake…Misty of course as every morning it’s covered in a beautiful mist. Misty Pake Farm is a 5 acre rural dream. Offering a Pake to cool off in or a dock to sit. Watch the incredible reflection of the mountains in the Pake while the rainbow trout jump. Home to a myriad of birds. Bald eagles, Heron, Osprey, Ravens, Hawks, geese, ducks and so many more. Maybe catch a glimpse of the thousands of crawfish that come out to play in the shallows at night. Deer may be grazing on the lawn. Only 10 minutes from the famous Kinsol Trestle and 15 minutes to downtown Duncan. This dreamy suite has been built for your comfort. Heated floors throughout, Satellite TV fresh ground coffee/espresso and wifi. Air conditioning is not necessary as the space maintains a cool comfortable temperature while temperatures outside can reach as high as 35 degrees. 600 sq of open floor plan.

Middle drawer doubles as a working desk and opens into desk space. Full size kitchen with herb garden right outside the door. Fresh ground COFFEE / ESPRESSO machine!! Stocked with Mustard, dijon, ketchup, hot sauce, bbq sauce, salt pepper, garlic powder, sugar, mayo, oil. Plenty of pots and pans, cookie sheet, utensils, grater, strainer. Brand new Stainless steel oven, toaster and microwave. Large island with bar seating for 4. Views right out to the Pake. Bathroom- Romantic shower for two! Jets, rain shower and two hand wands. HEATED FLOORS SPAN INTO THE SHOWER. Extraordinary lighting options. Romantic hidden lighting over the shower to set a romantic mood, LED mirror with Bluetooth speaker for music or favourite podcast. Fresh robes and fluffy towels. Custom Artisan soaps. Separate laundry with brand new large load LG wash and dryer. No charge! Large closet with hangers and baskets. Laundry soap and dryer sheets provided. Living area has a deep sofa and coffee table that lifts into a table. Eat comfortably while watching HBO. Ceiling fan with light. Enjoy your coffee and wine on the front porch overlooking the Pake. Relax in oh so comfy chairs pulled up to a gorgeous wood bar. Or stroll around the Pake sipping your pleasure of the moment. Two bikes and helmets are available and are included with your rental. There is so much to see and do here. Boutique shopping, hiking, wine tasting tours, brew pubs, great restaurants, whale watching, horse back riding, golfing, boating, beach combing and more. Oh, and please note that there is NO SMOKING IN the suite. You are welcome to smoke outdoors. .

  • Karen’s place is absolutely stunning! Classy, peaceful, and beautifully finished, you can tell a lot of time and thought went into creating this perfect getaway! Thank you for my wonderful stay.

    Rebecca2020-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Booked this place last minute because we missed the last ferry, and Karen was still able to accommodate us! Beautiful place, super cool whale art, and state of the art shower. Thank you!

    Yumi2020-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • Karen's place is perfect if you're staying in the area! It's absolutely spotless clean and such an easy place to relax. We would stay again 100%

    Nick2020-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Karen’s place. It is in a beautiful and unique location, set in lovely farmland in the Cowichan Valley. The suite is beautifully furnished and has a very comfortable king size bed so we had a great night’s sleep. Highly recommend!

    Katharine2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Karen is a fabulous Host. She is very attentive, yet respectful of your space and aims to make your stay a happy and enjoyable. The space is just as advertised but only better. It felt luxurious and we felt pampered. The bathroom has warmed floors and you feel like you are in a spa. The shower is an experience itself. The bed is very comfy, great pillows. It is so quiet and peaceful for sleeping. The views are magnificent. We saw 5 elk! A bald eagle grab a fish out of Misty Pake...life changing. The couch was major comfy. Brew pubs and really nice town of Duncan with great shopping nearby. We visited the historic Kinsol Tresle which is just 5 km up the road. We found it a great place to reboot from the world and you just cannot beat that view of the Pake and the mountain beyond. Highly recommend.

    Pamela2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Misty Pake suite is wonderfully appointed, comfortable with all details considered to make you feel at home. Nestled in the valley, the view from the front door was of a beautiful “Pake”. Karen communicated quickly and check in was a breeze. I would definitely stay here again.

    Jill2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We chose Misty Pake because it was listed as pet friendly and found a perfect little gem of a place in the country side. Spotlessly clean, spacious, very comfortable, with countless thoughtful little amenities and a lovely view over the “misty pake” made this a truly a special visit. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful place to spend some time communing with nature and exploring the Cowichan Valley. Truly a treasure and we would definitely return for future visits.

  • A perfect getaway! The home is beautiful, large, and clean. The hosts are friendly and accommodating, although provide privacy, and the whole process was easy. The backyard has adorable animals, and the bed was the most comfortable I have slept in in a long time! I will certainly be back and highly recommend this home, and host.

    Bailey2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Heidi’s place is lovely, restful, and charming. We arrived at night and had an excellent sleep on the beds, and we only saw the farm animals in the morning. What a fantastic way to enjoy morning coffee! The accommodations are sparkly clean and Heidi’s communication was prompt and helpful. We often visit the Cowichan Valley and this will now be a our go-to place. Thank you, Heidi,

    Lisa2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful spot. I felt really comfortable, happy and safe staying here as a solo female traveler. Very private, easy to communicate with hosts when needed and beautiful property and animals! The bed was one of the comfiest I have ever slept on! Felt like a cloud :)

    Emmy2020-01-16T00:00:00Z

    Anita2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Heidi’s place is wonderful. Exactly as pictured. Very new space, very clean, stylishly decorated. Very comfortable beds and wonderfully soft , clean bedding. Great little hobby farm, complete with sheep, llama, ducks and chickens! Heidi graciously allowed our two old dogs and even left a plush blanket for them! Very close to Cowichan Bay restaurants. A great stay, Heidi was a super host! I would definitely stay again should the opportunity arise!

    Cynthia2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

The place was spacious, and clean and very well equipped. No heavy scents, yeah! Easy to find and close to Mill Bay Centre and the new farm market store near by. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The heater/ac was quiet and effective. Bed was comfy, too!

    Corinne2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I recently stayed here and loved it! It’s an older home but the suite has been completely renovated and is beautifully done! Because it’s a little older, the walls are thin and you can hear people moving around a bit but it didn’t bother either of us at all. There are lovely views down to the lake and we had baby deer eating the grass right out the door! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciated the suggestions of things to do and the close proximity to amenities in the area.

    Aysha2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Stylish, modern suite with all amenities to make your stay comfortable. We appreciated the morning view and wish we could have stayed longer.

    Tarah2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Alissa gave us a kind welcoming! She left milk, fresh berries and other goodies for us and set up an extra cot for my unexpected daughter from Australia. The location was perfect for our plan to dine at The Bridgeman’s Bistro in Mill Bay and then to take the ferry to Salt Spring Island the next day! The view of the bay was lovely from the little outdoor area and we walked on the beach just down the road at low tide. She made it easy to arrive and provided every amenity ! The place was very clean and nicely decorated. Great stay! Arlene and girls

    Arlene2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and peaceful with many deer in the yard. The unit was spacious and the bed was very comfortable.

  • Arden's casita in Cowichan Bay is the perfect place to stay! Sparkling clean, beautifully decorated and comfortable, in a gorgeous location, and with incredibly kind and thoughtful hosts! Arden took the time to greet us and tell us about some gorgeous local hikes. We didn't have a long enough stay to do a ton of exploring (in town for a wedding), so we will certainly be heading back and will stay at Arden's again without a second thought! Highly recommend Arden, one of the loveliest Airbnb experiences I've had!

    Quiet property, shared with a gentle old horse, named Chip. Close to the lake and a 3 minute drive to the Cowichan Trail, connecting to the historic Kinsol Trestle, for hiking or cycling.
    We are a short drive to various Cowichan wineries. 30 minutes to Duncan and 40 minutes to downtown Victoria.
    This is a usually quiet neighbourhood, which gets busy in the summer months with boating and other lake activities. We are 10 minutes away from a public beach and our small village, with a great cafe, bakery and vintage shops.
  • This place is amazing! A totally private and quiet suite nestled in the trees. You feel like you're in the middle of the forest. MaryLou was a wonderful host as well. The suite has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing stay. Highly recommended!

    Eric2020-04-12T00:00:00Z

    Korey2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely couple of nights at Mary Ann’s cozy loft, and our only regret was we didn’t stay longer! It is such a peaceful, private hideaway, immaculate and nicely equipped with all you need. We so appreciated the spaciousness, and loved sitting up on the deck with a coffee or glass of wine. Mary Ann has thought of everything, including little extras in the fridge. And it was really nice to chat with Glen about the area, and get visited by old Chip. Super hosts, and a private, immaculate space among the trees...don’t hesitate to book this cozy loft! Thank you Mary Ann and Glen

    Lori2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious and lovely. MaryLou and Glen are welcoming and friendly. Chip is quite nice too. The space has everything you need and more. Great stay.

    Wesley2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Mary Lou provided all we needed for breakfast The house is very quiet, in the trees and well equipped, with two balconies with armchair and there is a lot of space outside. We got all information we needed Michele and Patrick

    Michele2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Exceptionally clean, beautifully designed, stylish and super comfortable place. Indeed, a Cozy Loft! We had a short stay and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The friendliness of he hosts made our stay even more enjoyable. They have a beautiful and gracious horse, Chip, who was welcoming us every day. MaryLou went above and beyond to create a great stay for us. We are back home with great memories and will definitely return back, but for a longer stay. Great place if you want to recharge, feel closer to the nature (forest, lake), but at the same time being close to city amenities.

    Oksana2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Mary Lou and Glen are amazing. They make you feel like you are family. They went above and beyond for us. The pictures of the loft do not do it justice. It is amazing. When we were sitting out on the deck having a beer we felt like we were in a tree house. So quiet, except for Chip (the horse). Felt like we were in the middle of nature. It is only 2.8 km from the exit point on the cowichan Valley Trail, which mad it appealing for us, as well as we could only stay one night. We will be back in the near futer for a get away. Truly amazing. Great value for money as well. I will also add that Sarpinos delivers there and the pizza was great.

    Jan2019-09-01T00:00:00Z

The location is amazing, tucked away in nature with beautiful ocean and mountain views and close enough to town for everything we needed. We loved chatting with Nina and Steve. They were very accommodating and gave us great local tips and advice! We’re very inspired to move to the island now! We can’t wait to come back soon and stay there again! Thank you so much for everything!

  • Nina and Steve were both amazing hosts. From booking to check out it was a smooth process! Loved the cabin more than the pictures expressed, perfect for our weekend outside of the city! The wine was a great touch we truly appreciated. When the power went out they were very considerate, helpful and responsive!

  • This is a great place. It was quiet, cozy and comfortable. We arrived during a snow storm and found the place easily. It continued to snow and we were snowed in, but we had food and a nice fireplace, cable tv and our snowshoes so we were set. Nina and Steve were great and helped us find our way around. The kitchen had everything we needed and even two bottles of wine. We will definitely come back and stay again.

    Situated in the heart of "Wine Country" on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada our one bedroom custom built log cabin is nestled in the perfect place to kick back and relax after a day of exploring the Cowichan Valley. Guests will revel in the serene ambience of the cabin done entirely in douglas fir and rustic red cedar. Situated on a hill surrounded by lush green forests, the cabin is only 5 minutes walk from the beach. This 450 sq ft cabin features a separate bedroom that has a large king size bed that looks out through French glass doors into the forest. A gorgeous contemporary living room furnished with a large comfy couch, a wood burning stove and a small kitchenette to prepare meals should you wish to dine in. The bathroom is the showpiece of the cabin with slate tiles, a large clawfoot tub, rain shower and stunning aromatic cedar walls. Cabin on Paradise is a destination in itself for those wishing to “get away from it all.” Relax by a roaring fire while sipping a glass of local wine. Sit on the deck and watch the bald eagles fly overhead. Go for a walk on the park trails that start from the cabin’s front door or read a book while you revel in the silence that envelopes you. We do allow some pets but there is an extra charge of 15.00 CAD per night to a maximum of 50.00 CAD per stay. Please let us know what kind of pet you have when you inquire about booking.
    Our neighbourhood is nestled away in a quiet, private area called Cherry Point close to the beach and walking trails.
  • A phenomenal space, cozy and warm. The kitchen is not big, however the deck, bbq and appliances available inside made for a very easy cooking experience during our stay. A wonderful space, quiet and tranquil environment - the log cabin is so beautifully crafted it’s a treat to be able to cozy up inside with a fire 10/10

  • Really enjoyed our stay at Cindy's cabin. It was the perfect cozy retreat on a rainy day with the woodstove fired up and the great soaker tub. Great location for exploring the Cowichan Valley, we especially liked the nice woodland trail that starts right out front. Kitchenette area is very tight but well equipped despite the small size, in nicer weather would have been a treat to enjoy the deck. Loved the leave a book, take a book mini library. Thanks Cindy!

    Rest, Relax and Rejuvenate!!! This peaceful rural cottage is nestled in the forest among a cluster of cabins on the Koksilah River. BBQ or soak in the hot tub on the private deck or explore the area. Swim in the river only steps away or stroll to the historic Kinsol Trestle Bridge. A short drive will take you to the wineries, golf courses, parks, whale watching tours, horse trails and much more. The cottage is centrally located to explore Shawnigan Lake, Cowichan Bay, Duncan or Victoria.
    This space is truly a weekend escape for two - complete with private hot tub on the back deck. Formerly owned and operated by Monie. Here are some excerpts from the perfect 5/5 star ratings for our newly purchased AIR BNB cottage: "I can't say enough to recommend this place. It is the perfect spot for a retreat - it is peaceful and secluded while not feeling isolated (other cabins in the area but you won't notice the neighbours, except for the deer that might visit while you indulge in the hot tub!) This cabin is like having your own private spa in the woods, from the hot tub to big soaker tub and lovely shower, to fully equipped kitchen, comfy couch, and massive bed, it is full on comfort and luxury. The location is perfect too - makes an easy drive from Victoria for a weekend getaway, is close to lots of fun things to do (I recommend the cider for delicious food and drink), but also perfectly suited to just staying in and relaxing. We'll be back for sure!" "The perfect little getaway from the city! We were looking for a cozy little cabin in the woods with all the amenities we would need to enjoy our weekend whether we decided to stay in or go out, and we found it at the Kinsol Cottage." "Fantastic weekend getaway! Hot tub in the woods, under the stars, sound of the river rushing nearby. Super cozy cabin, well equipped, and just an hour outside of Victoria BC." "The location is perfect, we were able to go wine tasting at a local winery in under 15 minutes. We also visited the Kinsol Trestle and local bakery. The bed was beyond comfy, the bath tub spacious and the heated bathroom floors heavenly on a cold snowy day." "The kinsol cottage getaway is just what the doctor ordered! Superb environment to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday city life. Very relaxing and friendly neighbours. What a beautiful winter getaway with the nearby hiking trails as an extra bonus." "Monie's cabin was absolutely perfect. It was exactly as advertised, quiet, clean, and relaxing. The hot tub was wonderful and the kitchen was nicely stocked. I would highly recommend this destination!"
    The cabin is uniquely situated to accommodate exploration to many of the small communities within a short drive. Whether you go up island to Chemainus to see the historic murals or Theatre, to Ladysmith's Christmas Light up, to Cowichan Bay to take in the Crab Fest or to Victoria for sightseeing you will have many interesting stops along the way. There are 15+ wineries in the Cowichan Region, most with tasting rooms. Arrangements can be made for winery and craft brewery tours with pick up and drop off from the cabin through Cheers Cowichan. Outdoor Activities in the Cowichan Regional District are extremely diverse. From Agri Tourism, cycling, hiking, golf, horse-back riding, wildlife adventures and fishing, there is something to please every level of interest. Daily whale watching and wildlife tours through Ocean Ecoventures are available only a short drive away at Cowichan Bay. Explore all of Vancouver Island's marine ecosystem on a small group or personal tour. Alpine Stables is only minutes away where you can arrange a trail ride through an old growth forest, a limestone rock quarry or up to a mountain summit where a camera is a must. Duncan is known as the "City of Totems" and has more than 80 First Nations carvings located throughout the town. For Car enthusiasts, Duncan is home to the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit. Duncan also boasts and a year round Saturday Farmers Market, the BC Forestry Discovery Center and a Casino. A stay at our cabin can be one of both rejuvenating relaxation and amazing adventures all year long.
  • Amazing getaway with everything you need! The perfect place to relax and enjoy the peace and quite and nature! Will return for sure.

  • Kinsol Cottage is an absolute dream, the photos don't do this amazing place justice! It's so private and cozy, we really didn't want to leave. The outside space is incredible, even though there are other cottages close by you really don't feel it at all. Kinsol Cottage is definitely in the best spot and feels very secluded. Awesome location, spotlessly clean, amazing hot tub, BBQ, fire pit, comfy bed, and has everything you need for a perfect weekend away (or longer... I could have definitely stayed longer!) Thanks for a lovely stay!

  • Amazing accommodation. Super host Sarah was so very hospitable. Returned every email promptly, communicated effectively. Great interpersonal skills, I can see why her and Lance are super hosts. Amenities were too many to list, one request would be a coffee bean grinder, other than that this little delight has it all. We often stay for short periods of time in AirB&B on the island. We will definitely choose here first if it’s available. Sarah is not just a great hostess, she is a good friend now also. Sincerely, Monique 😘❤️🙏

    OUR beautiful dorm built from a combination of natural building methodologies. If you are planning on staying for a week or longer, please take advantage of our discounted package rates by purchasing week or a month at one time.
    OUR is an intentional community whose focus is Permaculture design in farming, building and community living. We are also a demonstration sight for Natural Building of all kinds i.e. cob, straw bale, light straw clay, slip straw and other alternative and salvage building techniques. OUR's first focus is as a teaching centre for the above, because of this focus we have a number of accommodation options for learners who come to participate in OUR curriculum. There are times during the year when we are able to open OUR doors to non-specific-learners (because we are all learners) to come and enjoy a relaxed intentional farm & community stay. Does this type of community appeal to you?
    Located just 45 minutes north of Victoria, and 30 minutes south of Duncan, Shawnigan Lake is a lovely lakeside community offering year-round entertainment. The area features the incredible and recently restored Kinsol Trestle (the world's tallest wooden trestle bridge), many wineries, high end dining, lake-based activities, hiking, and more. The entire Cowichan Region, of which we are a part, is a breadbasket for the Island and features many amazing wineries and farm-to-table restaurants. Very nearby are opportunities to enjoy farm-produced breads, meats, cheeses, and more. Shawnigan Lake offers a small grocery store, coffee shop and cafe, restaurant, community center, and other amenities, while nearby Mill Bay is directly located on Hwy 1 and has gas stations, a large grocery store, and chain restaurants. It is very close to the Mill Bay-Brentwood Bay Ferry link which takes passengers to the Saanich Peninsula.
  • We loved the place and it was a very memorable experience to step back from civilization and experience off grid living. It’s for those of you who want to experience off grid & self sufficiency living living of the land and be eco friendly.

  • Wonderful.... So unique and special....felt like we were in another world...one that we have all forgotten. Where else do you have the opportunity to be a part of building a cobhouse? Or experiencing a time when there was no technology. If you long to go back in time...if you have the need to feel like your authentic self...book a night or two in this one of a kind Eco Village. Raw Fun extraordinaire.
