We recently stayed at this lovely little hotel. We had been looking for a little getaway and stumbled on this gem. We had driven by lots of times but were amazed at what was behind the white walls and beautiful planters. We were in suite 3 and loved our kitchen and bed/sitting room but the best was the patio with... More

Every attention to the smallest detail is not overlooked by thoughtful and kind hosts Rob and Claire. This place would make a perfect intimate wedding for family and friends with the beautiful flowers and deck and stunning views of the sparkling waters of the Georgia Straight and mauve and blue mountains across. Fantastic wedding photos to be sure. Comfy bed... More

We spent the winter at the Buena Vista and loved it! We stayed in an upper suite and enjoyed the view and sounds of the ocean. The room was clean and comfortable and having a full kitchen was a real bonus. Qualicum Beach is a friendly village that features a wide variety of restaurants and unique shops - no fast... More

We stayed here for four nights and couldn't be happier with the accommodation or the service ; it was all quality plus! We stayed in an upstairs suite, which I would highly recommend. There is something quite magical about lying in bed and watching the waves roll in.

The downstairs suites that open out onto the ocean are terrific. Once you are there, you might not bother exploring the rest of Qualicum Beach because you can beach comb, sit on their massive deck and completely escape. It really was what we needed. It is an adult-oriented place so if you have kids, like we did, you have to... More

We made last minute reservations on the Canadian July Long Weekend and only had one night to stay. Travelling with my wife we stayed in the Georgia room and it is gorgeous. Sparkling clean and a nice private deck looking out onto the Ocean. Angela immediately made us feel like family and did everything to make our one night stay... More

Choose the Georgia Suite, No 5. Worth paying the extra for the stunning view from the massive balcony. Looks over the sea and a pretty garden with sun deck. Lovely large room with seating area. Kitchen area and bathroom need a little updating but have all the equipment you need. Very helpful and friendly couple running the place whilst the... More
