Thyme Away B&B is amongst our favourite B&B's anywhere and our recent stay was the third time we've been there. We first found Thyme Away on tripadvisor,com and it lived up to the favourable reviews at that time and more and our two subsequent stays have been no different. Simply put, it is a great place to stay. Its rural... More

It's a lovely, two-room- B&B in the middle of quiet fields. Our room was so pretty -- all white with a touch of blush on the bedspread. Very well-appointed, cozy and comfortable. Everything excellent. Our hosts, Barbara and Marcel are wonderful people. Barbara and I made a great connection and laughed a lot. They have a gorgeous puppy who was... More

Definitely the place to stay in the Coombs area if you want a quiet place to relax. Barb and Marcel are friendly and accommodating and have helpful suggestions for places to visit and explore. The bed is super comfortable, the guest room is clean and has everything you need, and the views are fantastic - rabbits and deer and horses... More

We stayed with Barb and Marcel a few years ago and had a lovely stay. When we were once again needing accommodation near Parksville this summer we didn't hesitate to book ourselves into Thyme Away B&B again. Barb and Marcel are very friendly and accommodating. I am vegetarian and mentioned it at the time of booking. I never had to... More

I visited Thyme Away for one night last weekend and had a lovely time. I stayed in the Gardenia Room and felt spoiled. I am 7.5 months pregnant and needed a place to stay for a course I was taking. I slept incredibly well, enjoyed a scrumptious breakfast and felt comfortable and cared for. My breakfast was even made an... More

We were looking for a spot to break our journey across to Tofino, and found this place via Trip Advisor – it was the perfect B&B! Located off the main road through Coombs, so it was very quiet and peaceful, Barb and Marcel have a lovely home and our guest room was tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. It was the...

We we're checking out the island for possible retirement property between Duncan and Comox and chose Thyme away because it was out of the cities and in a rural setting, which is what we hope to find. It central mid-island location and easy access to the highways made our daily forays easy. Barb and Marcel were gracious hosts. The room... More

Last summer we took at 3 weeks tour of the west coast. Thyme Away was one of our favorite places we stayed. The setting was beautiful. Barb took us for a tour of the property and introduced us to her horse and the alpacas. The room was very comfortable, and quite pretty. We (such as it is) enjoyed learning about... More

Our 2 night stay on 7th and 8th August 2012 was total relaxation with Barb and Marcel, the cute alpaca trio and Duster, the horse. Breakfasts were splendid and both bedrooms so cosy and clean. The welcome was warm from our hosts and we had an immediate sense of 'belonging' there for our stay. No hesitation in recommending Thyme Away!

Had a great time on the island and was very happy with the lodging in coombs. Barb and Marcel are awsome hosts, breakfast was great and the peace and quiet was a treat. My wife and I were on a 4000km motorbike trip and this was our first time staying at B&B's and I will do it again for sure.... More
