A lovely, spacious home, set in a beautiful garden, welcoming, gracious hosts and ideally situated to explore the area. Add to that comfortable beds and the best (really, absolutely the best) breakfasts we've ever been offered in a B&B...all in all this is a formula for the peefect stay.

Blue Willow Guest House My husband and I traversed to Vancouver Island via plane, car, and ferry for a “meet and greet” trip to add two new canine kids to our family. Due to the nature of my husband’s work, we had to make a short trip and a quick decision. We ended up with two amazing fur kids and... More

Maxine had me at hello. Maxine and Jim are such warm and genuine people with a real knack for making their guests feel comfortable and cared for. Their home is beautiful. The attention to detail is everywhere. From the moment I contacted her I knew we were about to have a wonderful weekend away. We stayed in the Garden Suite... More

As a fellow B & B owner, I could not help but be impressed with everything beginning from the welcome we received, to the rooms and of course an amazing breakfast. Maxine's attention to detail is impeccable. What a wonderful way to show our Milan based family a beautiful corner of the world. Thank you Maxine.

Right from the phone conversation with Maxine you can feel her warmth!! We had booked a room in the main house but as they had a cancellation, we were upgraded on arrival to the Garden Suite. As we were only two, the suite had more than enough space! The bathroom was especially well decorated! Not to mention the garden! Hard... More

We stayed in the Garden Suite for 3 nights in July 2014. I can only say that everything about this place is wonderful, from the surrounding gardens, the trees, to the breakfasts served. An artists eye, that of Maxine's, has created this beautiful, relaxing environment. Our suite was above the garage. It had a very comfortable king-sized bed, a queen... More

I've stayed here on two occasions and would highly recommend it. The garden suite can sleep 5 people . Great choice for a girl's getaway ! The blue willow has stunning gardens, beautifully appointed rooms and fabulous food. Maxine bent over backwards to provide wonderful breakfast, even with dietary needs that would send any other crook spinning.she's so gracious and... More

I believe this is the sixth or seventh time we've stayed at Blue Willow over the years - the latest being last week. Maxine has created a truly relaxing haven with three course gourmet breakfasts (this time she accommodated guests with gluten and dairy allergies with specially prepared foods just for them), beautiful gardens and tasteful, comfortable décor. If you... More

On quickly dumping our bags we dashed down to Qualicum 'Curling Club' to watch our hosts Maxine and Jim win their 'friendly' match, just! We had arrived in Canada having followed the GB and Canadian teams win their respective Winter Olympic medals so it was brilliant to be invited to watch the game first hand. We had a very comfortable... More
