The best view. The sounds of the waves and front door access to the Ocean. Great host, helpful, informative and cheerful. Comfortable rooms. Miles long beach, exquisite restaurants. Easy access from Hwy 19A

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

Please was beautiful! Very quiet. Clean! Owners were kind and friendly and very helpful. Well manicured lawn. Beautiful sun deck with lounge chairs, umbrellas, tables and chairs. Steps to the beach! Great place for couples and families with grown children, or for girlfriends getaway. The beach in front of it has shallow places and you can swim. Also not far... 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

We were only able to stay one night at this little place - only eight units - and it really is a treasure. You'll wonder at first - it is right on the highway and looks kinda small and retro. But then you park (for free) and go in to register and Angela and Barry welcome you like old friends... More

We stayed just one night here at the end of our Vancouver Island trip. We had booked it on the basis of the reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. We had a gorgeous bright room with kitchen and the views were wonderful. We had a great welcome and a very comfortable stay. We would definitely stay here again and... More
