We have really enjoyed our stay in this lovely suite. The view is fantastic, and so was the weather. Thank you for your kind and gracious hospitality which always makes the stay more pleasant. We hope to return again sometime and are letting our friends know about this place. God bless you. - Byran & Jennie, Maple Ridge, B.C.


Thank you Bev, for another wonderful holiday at your haven. The week passed so quickly, yet we never felt rushed. We took the time to enjoy the spectacular view, the seafood, the ice cream, the hummingbirds, and old friends we ran into on the beach. The boys just love the beach and the tidal pools in front of your home, playing there for hours. We will see you again. - Kate & Adrian, Edmonton, Alberta


This region is truly a golfer's paradise. We really enjoyed playing a number of quality courses in the Bowser region that offered the ambiance and beautifull scenery rarely seen elsewhere. Thank you for your hospitality and the opportunity to stay in a most comfortable accommodation. You have a lovely home Bev. Wishing you all the best in the future. - Dr. Richard and friends, Ottawa, Ontario


For a family that usually vacations on the prairies, this vacation has been an absolute treat! A large part of the reason is your lovely vacation home. We made ourselves quite at home and so appreciated your kind touches, including the toy cupboard! The local setting is spectacular, and we also enjoyed our daytrips to nearby parks and islands. We feel very lucky to have discovered your haven and this part of the country. Thank you for providing such a welcoming home away from home. - Kate & Adrian, Edmonton, Alberta


Thank you for sharing your beautiful "HAVEN" with our family at this time when the peace and tranquility which surrounded us, provided comfort and solace. Your kindness and generosity will always be remembered. God bless you. - Marie, Claire & Jim, B.C.


I cannot think of a nicer spot for living. Thank you for sharing your home and your warm hospitality. Tara's Wedding was perfect and the ambiance of Oceanside Haven made it that much more special on the day of her Wedding as we prepared the Bride here in this beautiful setting. God bless you. - Marvin & Sharon, Alberta


Oceanside Haven has been the perfect place to make our "home away from Home" while we are moving house, quiet, beautiful and so relaxing. Thank you Bev, it has been a delight. - Al & Ruth, B.C.


Thank you, Bev for a great Vacation Suite. Your kindness is most appreciated. This week has been very special. - Wayne & Betty, Tucson Arizona, USA


Thanks very much for your hospitality. Oceanside Haven indeed is a tranquil and beautiful haven from the world. We loved every minute of our stay here and will remember it always. - Robbie & Jane, London, England


Your place is well named! Ron and I and our Grandaughter's really enjoyed our stay. Your home and yard is beautiful. The view spectacular! We enjoyed walking the beach, exploring the tide pools, being treated by a visit from a seal, kingfisher and watching the two pairs of Eagles soar and fish. The girls had fun making castles. We really enjoyed your hospitality and appreciated your thoughtfulness. - Gayle & Ron, Prince George, B.C.


We had such a wonderful stay in Bowser. You have a lovely home and a gorgeous oceanfront view. Your hospitality was great. We will always remember our stay and hope to come back again. - Lee-Anne & Rick, Fort McMurray, Alberta


A very enjoyable, comfortable stay is your "vacation suite" - such a gorgeous view too! - Joe & Jean, Ottawa, Ontario


Our week here was wonderful. It was nice to know that at the end of a busy day sightseeing that we had a comfortable, cozy home to come back to. Scott even said maybe you wouldn't notice if we never left. Thank you for sharing your home with us. I love the kitchen and being able to make most of our meals here. The view is fantastic. Some of our favorite activities were: Englishman River Falls, Horn Lake Caves, Qualicum, Beach shopping, Parksville mini golf, Cumberland Museum, the ferry to Denman and Hornby Islands and Nanaimo harbour. Everything was beautiful. I will recommend our home away from home to anyone who is coming to the area and we will definately be back. Thanks again. - Deanna & Scott, Regina, Saskatchewan


Thank you so much for providing such a beautiful spot for our holiday. We enjoyed our stay last year and enjoyed it even more this year. This is such a tranquil peaceful setting, we hate to go home to our busy busy lifestyle but you can be sure that if we come back to the Island next year, this is the place we'll be. - Denise & Brent, Edmonton, Alberta

Thank you so much for the nice house. We are from China, we enjoyed the holiday in your beautiful house. - Sailing & Catherine, China

Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us. There were so many exciting sites to see on the Island and this week seemed very short. The kids loved your toy closet. The beach was definately a highlight with all of the creatures to explore. This week will truly be an unforgetable one for all of us. We hope to be back soon. - Glenn, Kathy, Sam & Kelty, St Albert, Alberta

Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us. We really enjoyed our stay, very relaxing & quiet. The views are breathtaking. We could stay forever. It was our home from home. Our friends from the UK loved it too. - Hilary & Bernie, Pitt Meadows, B.C., Tony & Martin, Chingford - UK
