    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.

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.

Blue Grouse Vineyard Craig Street brew pub Farm Table Inn The Old Firehouse wine and cocktail bar Black Swan pub To name a few...
  • 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.

    Casie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay here! The beautiful kitchen had all the basic necessities for cooking your own meal, the bed was super comfy and the massive shower is the cherry on top! The space is super cozy and perfect for a little getaway!

    Alicia2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Pretty much perfect.

    Alyssa2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Karen’s place was quiet and peaceful. We loved the coffee maker! The shower was also amazing. I wish we had more time to enjoy, but we will return for a longer visit for sure.

    Small and quiet rural neighbourhood. Near farms and quaint community.
  • Channelle’s place is a little paradise. My father and I took a family trip together looking for a place to heal and connect. This space was exactly that. On a large property in which the host lives, although totally secluded surrounded by trees and a 5 minute walk to the river below the property. Gardens, three fire pits, and the sound of birds. The house is beautifully decorated and there is thoughtfulness around every corner. A very lived in, well nested and feels like a home right away. The host was kind and gave us loads of privacy yet available whenever we had questions. I would highly recommend this place to anyone :)

    Katie2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • I had high expectations for this place and they were exceeded. It's a sweet, quiet, private spot with 360° of trees and fields and access to a beautiful swimming hole. I couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Chanelle for making me feel right at home!

    Robert2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful space - stylish, clean and comfortable - with lovely pastoral views all around. The beauty, peace and quiet of Chanelle’s place ranked it high in our books. Chanelle was a delight as well! Recommended.

    Jean2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures don't do this space justice. It was stunning inside, the views were lovely, everything was very clean, the bed was super comfy and it had everything we needed. We loved how pet friendly it was, the dog door and fully fenced yard were a nice bonus. This is by far my favorite air bnb I've stayed in. We also checked out the nearby Blue Grouse Winery which we recommend if you stay here. Delicious wine and cute animals.

    Sara2019-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great rural location with beautiful views and great amenities. Everything is accurate in the advertising and it is good value. Communication and hospitality is great.

    Muriel2019-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a great stay at the cabin! Maureen (Chanelle's mom) was a lovely and very helpful host. I recommend this stylish cabin to anyone looking for a beautiful, inspiring little spot in the Cowichan Valley! Its really nice that it is fenced in so our dog could not escape (and I could relax ;). Thanks for a great stay!

    Hannah2019-02-10T00:00:00Z

    Selina2019-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Chanelle was an excellent host. It was a pleasure staying in her home that truly displays Chanelle’s personal touch, sense of style and character. Spotless and very well equipped , is how you will find her accommodations in an incredibly private and tranquil setting. I would encourage anyone I know to visit Chanelle, and we will go out of our way do the same, when in the area. Thank you Chanelle..!!

We are also 15 min walk to the international school.

  • 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!

    Sam2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay . It is close to the village in Shawnigan. We enjoyed the suite as it was very clean, new and had everything needed to be comfortable. The projection big screen tv was cool and came with a selection of movies you could watch from the comfort of a roomy couch. The kitchen had everything we needed to make simple meals. We saw turkeys in the yard too! This place was good value and the hosts were very responsive.

    Kristane2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Gleb and Maria have a lovely home with thoughtful touches and in a great neighborhood. You can take advantage of the projector or hop 2 minutes away to take in beautiful Shawnigan Lake. Would stay again!

    Kate2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Peaceful stay, lovely space, and awesome composting toilet. Also, fantastic if you drive an EV!

    Sophia2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

  • I would definitely stay here again. The space is beautiful and offers a lot of great amenities. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast in the morning was an awesome bonus.

    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!

While the cottage is perfect for an individual or a couple, foam mattresses can be supplied to sleep one or two children. It is wheelchair accessible.
    The Giving Tree Cottage offers you a quiet and comfortable stay while visiting the Cowichan Valley. This sunny, newly-built studio cottage is self-contained and has everything you need for a short or long stay. You will enjoy a fully-equipped kitchen, a luxurious queen bed, a bright bathroom with a deep soaker tub, and a comfy sitting area to curl up with a good book. Our property is surrounded by mature trees offering privacy in a natural surrounding. The quiet semi-rural neighbourhood is great for walks or bike rides. Star-gazers will appreciate the clear nights when you can enjoy a blanket of stars not often visible in the city. Foodies will love using the kitchen to cook up local fare from the Duncan Farmers’ Market and the many farm stands. Or, if you would prefer a break from cooking, you are minutes away from Unsworth Restaurant, Merridale Cidery, Bridgemans Bistro, and the Cobblestone Pub.
    The cottage is centrally located, allowing you to explore the many features of the Cowichan Valley. Walk the Kinsol Trestle, hike Mount Tzouhalem, kayak in Cowichan Bay, or take a wine tour! Those who like swimming and boating will enjoy being close to Shawnigan Lake, the Cowichan River, and the Saanich Inlet. The Giving Tree Cottage is less than a 10-minute drive from Shawnigan Lake, Mill Bay, Cowichan Bay, and Duncan, and only 40 minutes north of Victoria. The cottage is perfect for parents visiting students at Shawnigan Lake School, Brentwood College and Brooks Shawnigan Lake.
  • If you are looking for something quiet and remote with great amenities and a wonderful host, this is the place for you! A beautiful little cottage parked in the woods with everything you need.

  • This was perfect for visiting family in Duncan and having a private space in the woods. I would recommend it a place to hang your hat for the night.

    Chris2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Brenda and Ich’s cottage was perfect! They left a few goodies from the farm, which were delicious and were very welcoming when I arrived. The communication was excellent and the place was everything I was looking for. A fantastic location so close to a great Cidery and winery and centrally located for biking around the area. Plus really nice touches, particularly the map that they left for guests to use. Very handy when my GPS wasn’t connecting!

    Justin2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful cottage and although I wasn't there much of the time it was nice to come home to with cleanliness, coziness and secure. The cottage and the surroundings are a beautiful place to get to call home - even for a two week period. You won't regret staying here.

    Gayle2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cute little place with an excellent kitchen and great location. Brenda and Ich were great hosts!

    Emily2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful spot. Peaceful and secluded, yet close to local activities. We stayed here while preparing for our wedding and were so happy. The bed was super comfortable, and the full kitchen made everything convenient and cosy.

    Grace2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • A weekend getaway with my husband was all the more delightful staying at the Giving Tree Cottage, under the attentive eyes and thoughtful gestures of Brenda & Ich. Grab this place if you are lucky enough to find it available. Clean, spacious, comfortable, and nice linens too. Complete kitchen stocked with cooking utensils. No hesitancy in recommending it.

    Kymn2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Brenda and Ich's place was exactly as expected. Great location, lovely place, extremely responsive and respectable. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you'd need for cooking; even has a dishwasher. Nice quiet location, but close to anything you need. Would love to come back.

  • Joe's home was a wonderful place to stay in Mill Bay. The downstairs suite was much larger than we expected and we loved having the fireplace! We were glad to see that the TV had Chromecast, and the living room had a huge assortment of books. Joe's backyard is lovely with lots of thriving plants and wildlife (we saw a few hummingbirds!). The hot tub is a great touch for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. He was very accommodating and let us check out an hour later, and was very considerate in sending me a message the day before to tell us how to check in. I would not hesitate to recommend Joe's home!

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
  • Absolutely beautiful, comfy and quiet. Heidi was prompt at responding to any questions I had while I was there.

    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
  • A nice clean, quiet place. We only stayed one night as we were traveling but the accommodation was great. This was our first time using air b&b.

    Myroslav2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • A clean and simple stay that was sufficient for our needs. Communication was easy and fast. Just keep in mind that the bedroom at the back of the house is in audible range of the sweet farm animals so it might be a bit less disruptive to sleep in the master.

I also have an upstairs bedroom ( listed on here, Private Peaceful Bedroom) if you're needing 2 bedrooms for your family or friends to stay in the same house.
    My home is very comfortable, quiet & cozy, home away from home. The bedrooms are private, and quiet, great for a good nights sleep. The area is in a good neighbourhood, surrounded with trees, great location, 5 min walk to the Cowichan Bay village, where you can get everything you need. I have a small hypoallergenic dog, who does not go into any of the bedrooms.
    The neighbourhood is safe, quiet, private...Yet, very conveniently located. 5 min walk to the Village.Gorgeous Oceanside Pub, which has great food. Other restaurants, coffee shops, Organic bakery, Cheese shop, many stores in the Bay. The best Whale watching on the island, at OceanEcoVentures. Rent Kayaks for a day or evening paddle. Lots to see and do in the quant little Fishing Village of Cowichan Bay.
  • I have stayed at Erin's a number of times, and really enjoy the location, close to Cowichan Bay, and peacefully nestled in the trees. Her house is always very clean and well organised. Erin is always very respectful and helpful. Thanks for another great s†ay Erin!

    Celia2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

    Michelle2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Erin has a very cozy home. Staying at her property feels like visiting a relative. I slept well which is great. Her kitchen has amazing views, also met the adorable Coco. I thought sharing washroom wouldn't be a good thing for us but we never have problem here, it felt like we had it for ourselves. Downstairs room was good for four but there's only me and my husband, we used the queen/fold out bed, which is a little bit rundown and uneven, still, I slept well. Area was a little disappointing, with very little to see/do, or perhaps I'm not aware. I thought I could swim on the beach but no. Nearest beach was marked as for native people only. The park(about 20mins walk) with beach isn't a great place to swim either.

    Michelle2019-08-08T00:00:00Z

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend getaway at Bryanne’s place. They have created a relaxing, private, sparkling clean, well decorated space that is maintained like it is brand new. Well stocked kitchen and all other amenities. Excellent communication and lots of helpful information in the guest book. The location overlooks a scenic field in the countryside resulting in a quiet sleep in the comfy bed. However, close enough for a short 10 minute walk downhill into Cowichan Bay. Thanks again. Highly recommended.

    This quiet, private cottage is conveniently located in the middle of Cowichan wine country. The central location means that many activities are just a short drive away. Within a few kilometers of the cottage you can hike on the the gentle slopes of Cobble Hill mountain, walk the waterfront at Cowichan Bay or take a wine tour at the many vineyards nearby. For more athletic endeavors there are two golf courses a short distance away and world famous mountain biking nearby too.
    We like to think of our cabin as quieter, more private, cleaner and cheaper than a hotel. To see some of the local attractions that we visit follow us at https://www.instagram.com/gardenviewcottagebnb/

  • Kimberly and Stu's suite is sparkling clean and very comfortable with special extra touches. The kitchen is well appointed and was even stocked with extras like granola bars and frozen waffles. The bed and linens were fresh and cozy. They were even so kind as to provide wine and an anniversary card! Their cabin is a well-organized, peaceful, home away from home. The surrounding area is great to explore. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Deanna2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great stopover location for visiting the island. The cabin is recently renovated and very well appointed with finishing touches that make it very cosy and homely for a couple. It’s very clean. The bed was very comfortable. The hosts were friendly and supportive. We were very appreciative of their thoughtfulness.

    Gwenda2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here a couple of nights. It was perfect. There was a cold bottle of wine for me in the fridge upon arrival! And snacks! The bed was so comfortable we didn’t want to get up. I went for a jog in the morning and the roadside was beautiful. The grocery store and coffee shop are so close as well. Definitely recommend this space and the homeowners are more then generous.

  • Our stay was short but this place was exactly what we needed for our hiking tours: Quiet, cozy, a place to rest our weary legs. We even saw a deer in Erin’s garden and humming birds around the corner. Communication, checkin and checkout were easy. The shared bathroom is next to the bedroom and was never busy when we needed it. You can walk down to the Cowichan marina from Erin‘s place: just follow some stairs and then the road. Amongst others, there are great restaurants, a German-style bakery and an ice cream parlor at the marina.

The unit is well located, immaculate, close to nature, private, quiet, bright, airy, confortable with upscale furnishings and amenities. The attention to details is remarquable.

The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, sheet pans, and cutlery to cook during the stay and there are grocery stores close by for all ingredients. The location was perfect for us to explore the southern part of the island, with access to plenty of amazing hikes. I'd definitely stay at Kim's again.

  • This is a great little hidden gem! We will be back again next year.

    Tanya2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • This was perfect for a few days of quiet downtime and relaxing. The stay was lovely and comfortable, and Kimberly was very attentive and also gave some good tips about some local wineries and restaurants. Her place was a perfect home base for exploring all the sights and tastes of the Cowichan Valley.

  • Everything was lovely. I would stay again and would recommend to family and friends.

    Aaron2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • What a cute little gem of a place! We went glamping in Julie and Gord's trailer for Family day and we had such a great experience! They had a bunch of wood cut for us to have two nights of campfires, their place is spotless and full of everything we needed. Julie even went above and beyond and offered our kids muddy buddy's to wear to roam the property! they were so wonderful offering up their help for anything we may need during our stay. We will absolutely be back! Road noise as mentioned in other reviews was honestly not noticeable at all to us. Thank you for a wonderful stay, quite possibly the most kid friendly place we've ever been to yet! 🤗

    Lori2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Julie and Gord are amazing, and their place is wonderful. Very comfortable and private space, but they are available and very quick to communicate. Had a little issue with the awning that was fixed before we even knew it was a problem. The property is beautiful, and is a very nice place to hide away if you are exploring the island. We didn't find the road noise to be annoying at all. Will absolutely be back! Thank you again for everything!

    Emily2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • This little air bnb is wonderful and this is my 2nd time. Everytime there is more and more little touches added. Cant wait to go back again

    Donna2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is the first air bnb that we've been to and we enjoyed it more than any hotel. Location was easy to find, well equipped with anything you could need. Road noise was not an issue for us. We will definitely return and will definitely reccomend it to others.

    Donna2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • First time renting a trailer and was pleasantly surprised at how great it was. The space was comfortable, trailer was very well appointed and the location was fantastic. The hosts were very thoughtful and quickly responded to all of our questions. There is road noise but that wasn’t a big deal with fan white noise. Wifi was problematic at times but with such a beautiful area who would want to be on a computer anyway:) Thanks for everything Julie and Gord!

    Elizabeth2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We quite enjoyed our stay at Julie and Gord's trailer. The trailer was clean, homey and well stocked. Despite being close to the road, the location felt very private and we liked that. We barely noticed the sounds from the road.Julie was very nice and communicated well with us. She responded very promptly to our enquiries and was a pleasure to chat with. If I'm ever in the area again, I would definitely stay again.

    Jeff2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • The place was amazing, and it felt like a mini-vacation being able to escape from my usual academic work. Hopefully, I can return with my friends sometime in the future.

    Ethan2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. Immaculately clean, spacious yet cozy all at the same time. Being british myself it was a treat to spot all the UK references. Alison was easy to communicate with and the location was great. Recommended

    Heidi2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Alison’s should place was a lovely getaway, the main floor is very spacious with tons of room to get cozy and relax with a book. The kitchen is updated and a great space to cook and hangout. We also appreciated that it had three bedrooms so every couple got a room to ourselves. The place is surrounded by forest so you feel nestled in the trees. Alison was quick to respond to any questions and the place was very clean and warm. I highly recommend staying here!

    Sarah2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

    Marlaine2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • This accommodation was in a convenient location. Very clean and nicely setup with ease of access. It was a quiet and lovely treed area. It is located close to the Shawnigan Lake school, Kinsol trestle bridge (Cowichan Valley & Trail) and hiking trails which were amazing, Unsworth vineyard & restaurant as well as the Meridale Cidery and Distillery. Overall, a lovely area!

    Rachel2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • - Parking on property in a quiet residential area - Separate entrance with keyless entry - Spacious basement suite for 2 people - Super clean and tidy with essentials provided - Netflix! - Just be mindful when cooking and/or taking a shower, ensure u turn on the fan (might even open the windows and door) so the smoke alarm doesn't get triggered, it's quite sensitive.

    Eva2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • I really liked this Air Bnb - it was private, and a very nice layout. Essentially, it’s a one bedroom ground level apartment with a good sized bedroom, kitchen and living room. The bathroom is great - a nice high shower head (sometimes a problem for us tall folks) and fabulously fluffy towels. Everything is sparking clean, and there is a nice calm aesthetic throughout the space.

    Our beautiful floathome is called "Sadhana" meaning a tranquil place to do what's most important in your life -- kayak, write, hike, paint, laugh. It's located in the heart of Cowichan Bay, just next to the kayak shop at Blue Nose Marina.
    A unique experience living on the water near all amenities.
    The internet can be searched to acquaint yourself of Cowichan Bay and nearby Duncan. Cowbay itself is noted for its' quaint food and gift shops. There are two fresh water lakes with beaches within a 40 minute drive.
  • If you are looking for an unique and memorable Airbnb experience then you may have found the place. Situated on a floating home in the picturesque community of Cowichan Bay, Ken's Place will make a wonderful getaway for your family and friends. Cozy living space, comfortable beds, and a kitchen stocked with everything you could need to make beautiful meals. His place is a stone's throw away from wonderful restaurants and shops in Cowichan Bay and only 7 minutes to the city of Duncan. My family stayed for over a month and we really enjoyed our experience there. Ken is a wonderful, responsive host and responded quickly and effectively to any concerns that came up during our stay. Wonderful experience. Thanks so much Ken :)

    Lorrie2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Super quaint and lovely location in Cowichan Bay. Close to restaurants, shops and right on the water. Amazing whale watching too! This is a quiet location with much charm. I can’t wait to come back. Ken is a fast and easy to communicate with. He was very helpful. You’re stocked to make your own meals in this surprisingly roomie float home. Keep your eyes out for wild life right out the kitchen windows. We had one rocky night with the winter weather but other than that it was calm and beautiful.

    Laura2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We did not end up staying at the Sadhana but Ken was an excellent communicator :)

    Danielle2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • There are seals and fish swimming underneath the houseboat! The location is simply breathtaking. We would definitely come back. It was just what we needed while visiting family nearby.

    James2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is why I love Air BnB, we get to choose interesting places that we wouldn’t otherwise experience. For the money, this has to be the best place in the area and a very cool space as well. Ken was precise in his instructions and managed expectations well. He was very responsive whenever we reached out to him. This is not a five star hotel experience, but rather a cosy, unique work of art. It is also much bigger than expected. We would not hesitate to stay here again should our travels bring us this way again.

    Ken2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • If you have always wanted to know what it would be like to spend a week on a floating home, this place has charm and great value. It is close to many attractions and we were busy everyday. It is cozy, the beds are comfortable and we had a terrific, quiet holiday.

    Linda2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to unwind. Thoroughly relaxing, close walk to great food, and the canoe was a bonus. Will definitely plan a return trip!

    Marcus2019-09-12T00:00:00Z

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

    Madeline2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Alissa's place seems brand new on the inside. It is very spacious, has a full kitchen, wonderful bathroom and sleeping area and a great selection of media entertainment. Private entrance that includes your own parking spot. And it has air conditioning too. Awesome.

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!

  • This place is wonderfully decorated with lots of lovely home touches. We only stayed one night but could have stayed much longer. Linzi is a very thoughtful and communicative host.

  • Linzi's place is the definition of an awesome Airbnb experience. She clearly knows hospitality as it showed throughout the beautiful apartment. Although we never got to meet Linzi, as the self-check-in and out was a breeze, the apartment was spotless and had the most amount of snacks and teas I've seen in an Airbnb EVER! Once we were in the apartment we wish we could have stayed much longer as the sense of peace and quiet was amazing.

    Tom2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended!! Large, comfortable, fully equipted, the hosts have thought of everything.

    Ronald2019-09-06T00:00:00Z

    Marga2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Linzi’s place is in a great location and the parking space was very simple and accessible! Linzi’s home was beautiful and the special touches/ decorations that were added made it so cozy and homelike! Amazing amenities and great communication:)

    Nina2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • WOW - One of the best Air b n B experiences we have had traveling thru Canada, UK, Spain and US. Cannot think of anything more that Linzi or Dan could have done. Great communication, local tips and the apartment was immaculate. We could have spent additional time as many fun adventures we did not get to do. Highly Recommended

    Chris2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and modern space. Marsha was an excellent host and a great communicator. The view from the kitchen was a great way to wake up. The pool was also a nice addition on those hot evenings

  • It was nice. You can still hear car noise when you are outside from the roads around it. Inside is pretty quiet. Only was woken up once from someone upstairs. Really nice and well put together.

    Eric2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is beautiful! So quiet. The suite is very well kept and the hosts are quite wonderful people. Will definitely try and stay again if we need a place in that area. Also, the movie selection is great :)

    Justin2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a month here and it was paradise - nothing could've been better. The suite itself is lovely, so clean and well maintained, the most fully-stocked kitchen I've encountered in an AirBnB before, and very comfortable bed and furnishings. It was the perfect retreat to get away from the city and enjoy being in a more relaxing pace of life. The WiFi (which is important for me as I work from home) is excellent, super-fast and reliable. For a suite it is spacious, and the forest views out of every window are magical. The nights are so peaceful and quiet, and the hot tub is a wonderful touch. Shawnigan lake area itself is charming, and full of delightful little coffee shops and beautiful places to walk. We visited in the fall and the colours of all the trees changing was quite amazing. Wildlife spotting was a highlight - we were even lucky enough to spot a black bear wandering past our kitchen window one afternoon! The check-in process was smooth and easy, the suite had a guide book folder full of all the information (both on the accomodation, as well as the local area) that anyone might want. I would recommend this stay to anyone, and hope that sometime I will be lucky enough to return again.

    Anna2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is a little piece of heaven on the island. It is well appointed and comfortable. It literally has everything you need. There is lots of wild life on the property, from birds to deer and raccoons. It is in close proximity to lots of hiking and biking trails as well as provincial parks. Cowichan Bay and Mill bay are a close drive as are Victoria and Ladysmith/Nanaimo. Kim and Paul are lovely thoughtful hosts, they care for their land and their property so well and through their work they have created something really special. We will definitely be back.

    Lexie2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • I have stayed in the ground floor one bedroom suite for one month. It was perfect for my personal getaway, taking a break from noisy Vancouver. I enjoyed "living in the woods" a lot and will miss the quietness and wildlife walking/flying by my kitchen window! The place looks exactly like in the photos and communication with Kim and Paul has been very easy. I hope I will be able to return one day!

    Barbara2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Kim’s place. It was sparkling clean, quiet, and had all we needed for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed exploring the area especially the bike trails.

    Sharon2019-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Kim and Paul were concerned hosts who went out of their way to make sure that my stay was comfortable. Communication was quick and easy, as was our check-in. I spent 4 weeks in their lower level apartment and it had lots of amenities as they described in their description of the place. The location was a little ways off of Hwy 1, but gave easy access to go to Victoria or north to other scenic areas on the island. I would recommend staying at this location for a few days to a few weeks if you want to savor what Vancouver Island has to offer.

    Molly2018-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for just over a month in this home and it was absolutely fantastic. The home was clean and well equipped upon arrival – everything we needed to prepare meals and stay long term. It stayed cool, even on the hottest of summer days, inside. The home is light, bright and private. The WiFi is fast, the bed comfortable and the nights are oh so quite. We loved eating breakfast while spying on wildlife. The wildlife that comes across the property in front of the large windows was amazing- owls, deer, baby quail and, if you are lucky, a black bear. The Cowichan Valley Trail is 1 kilometer away and was easily accessible, on foot, from the home. You will need a car to get groceries from here, but the drive is easy and beautiful. The best part of this place was feeling outdoors, even while indoors, and the beauty of the surrounding nature. Kim and Paul were excellent hosts that went out of their way to make us comfortable. They are genuinely good people working hard to provide an excellent place. We highly recommend this home and plan to return ourselves.

    Nicola2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Susan’s place was everything we expected it to be and more. It’s a beautiful property with a clean, bright and spacious basement suite. The coffee and homemade baking in the mornings was a nice added touch. We had all the privacy we needed and were able to stay only minutes from relatives. We are very satisfied!

    Sarah2019-09-28T00:00:00Z

  • Susan and Gordon are great host. Me and my wife really enjoy the place, we both had a great experience here: the fruits, the garden, the back yard, the deer, and the interior. Everything about Susan's home is just perfect! Would definitely come visit again when We come back to Mill Bay.

    Kent2018-11-03T00:00:00Z
