We stayed here twice - August long weekend 2012 and 2013 for the Alert Bay 360 kayak race. The cabins are equipped with everything you need, they are very clean and cheerful. The service is great and we were made feel welcome and at home. Tono went out of his way to help with everything we needed. Saturday night he... More

If you're looking for peace and relaxation this is the place for you. Situated at the far end of Cormorant Island, right beside the hiking trails, I felt a sense of supreme calm at Oceanview Cabins and could have stayed much, much longer. In addition, the service is astounding, the beds are very comfortable, the kitchen complete, and the showers... More

We were in the 'northern' part of Vancouver island. We were put up at the Oceanview Cabins and were impressed with the cleanliness and cheeriness of the cabins. All you needed was there. We had all types of weather that day, but it was March and unpredictable.

Don't get me wrong, I had a good sleep every night I was at Oceanview but the ocean view included a giant shrub as well as trees blocking the view of the actual ocean which was about .5kms away. Had I known the view was as such, I would've paid the lesser amount for a non-ocean view cabin BC they're... More

We stayed two nights in August 2011, but wish we stayed longer. We would absolutely stay at Oceanview cabins again. We stayed in one of the two bedroom cabins at the top of the hill. The bedrooms each had a queen bed, dresser, and side tables. There was a vanity mirror in each, too. No AC (typically no need), but... More

This is my second time staying at the Oceanview properties, this time for business, previous time on a personal trip. Both of my stays have been absolutely fantastic. As a traveler throughout BC, these cabins are top-notch. They can essentially be a home away from home. Very clean and very functional. Kitchens are well-equipped with all of the essentials, allowing... More

Very well equipped kitchen that I wish I realized I had before I left home. Bed was very comfortable. Room was clean and had internet........surprisingly considering the remoteness. May... More

Prices too high. We felt like we were imposing on the owners. We were required to take the most expensive cabin when making a phone reservation. As it turned out we were about the only people there, so why could we not have had the less expensive cabin?

Dear Unhappy Guest. As a rule we try hard to please our guests and if you did not like your cabin we would have been happy to put you elsewhere if we had, one available. In order to avoid having to move you and depending on previous bookings we cannot always do so. Perhaps if you had booked earlier, perhaps... More

We stayed at Ocean View in June/08. We couldn't have asked for a better price for the amount of people we were traveling with. The cabins were clean and well decorated. It is equipped with everything you need if you don't want to eat out, just bring your groceries. It isn't close to the ocean but the cabin we stayed... More

We used to stay at these cabins each year for approximatelly 6-7 years but since the new ownership and the huge price hike we can no longer afford it and feel that there are better places to stay and just as nice. The old owners used to treat us like family and we used to look forward to our holidays... More
