As I walked under an archway made of driftwood with shells and real fisherman's netting hanging off I knew this was going to be a unique experience. Heron house is a cool and funky retreat right on the ocean on Quadra Island. There's a main house and a number of guests houses on the property. My room was in the... More

We booked the Boathouse for our stay but after checking it out and seeing the blustery September weather forecast we upgraded to the cottage. The Cottage was perfect for us and had lots of character. The place has great character and the owner was friendly and accomodating.Great value and a comfortable stay. It is exactly what we hoped for and... More

My husband and I went over to Quadra for a get away weekend this labour day. Knowing that Quadra is a very relaxed and laid back community, we expected to find a very earthy and simple place. What we found was extremely interesting and genuine. This cute little property is very organic with all of it's homemade type accessories, simplicities... More

We rented the entire property for the first 2 weeks in August. It was a great place to rent for a large group. It was within walking distance to the grocery store, liquor store, restaurant, pub and marina. The location is primo! The property has an assortment of cabins, each with their own appeal. The view from the deck of... More

This is an eclectic, organic and quirky place consisting of a main house composed of 3 bedrooms/3 bath/2 lofts with a separate room and bath below on the water with gorgeous unobstructed views and direct access to the beach which is filled with clams and oysters. Near the house are several self contained cabins. We have rented many places in... More

I remember this as the worst experience in my life. I am not a demanding traveller, and at that time I was woofing along Canada, so I was not pretending to be in a 5 star and I was used to hostels and rural accomodations. The first thing I thought was that I had mistaken the place. It was a... More

OK- this is a difficult one to review. First of all the location is out of this world and made up for the minor drawbacks. We had a wonderful deck almost on the ocean with the most incredible view. When we booked on line with booking.com we were told we would have a ktchenette in a separate cabin but when... More

I love this place. I could sit and enjoy the view all day, rain or shine. You can't stay closer to the ocean and still be on land. Linda is a generous host, and she took good care of us, making sure we were happy in the cottage and helping us enjoy the best of Quadra and Cortes.

We stayed in the Boat House for two nights. It was a cute little get away. Simple, one-room accommodation. Photos on their website were very accurate. There is no bathroom - but rather an outhouse / outdoor shower. I would describe the place as quirky. Not especially accessible if you have any mobility issues. For the price it was a... More

I stayed at the Heron House for a few nights before and after my kayaking tour, and I loved it! It is such a cute house with lots of personality, and I felt immediately at home. Linda was a great hostess, and offered pick me up from the ferry terminal. Everyone at the Heron House was so warm and welcoming,... More
