I booked online and the response was prompt and accommodating. A purpose-built B&B, it has a stunning location on the shore, with gorgeous views. The made-to-order breakfast was yummy and there were a number or choices so good for a longer stay. Our room was the Orca Dream,with a queen bed, TV, fridge, table and chairs and a nice bathroom...

Haven't been for 10 years but Chris and Karen still make the mark. Perfect spot to hub a north Island exploration weekend. Great views as on the ocean. Clean and well managed. Ask for their holiday suggestions as they came through on all counts.

At Water's Edge really is right on the beach with lovely views across the water. It is just on the edge of Port McNeill, a two minute drive into the town for restaurants and shops and a forty minute drive from Telegraph Cove and wildlife watching trips. There are four, identical rooms on offer here - all at the back... More

We needed a room close to Telegraph Cove and found this B&B. The room was clean and new looking with a queen bed a nice private bath. The best part was the huge back porch that looked out across the water. The owner said they had a grey whale just off-shore two days before. Since we had to leave very... More

I'm rather late with my review as we stayed in September 2013 but we really loved this place and wish we had more than the 2 nights. We really enjoyed just sitting out taking in the amazing views. We went for the whale watching with the Mackay family, (which was also brilliant) A short walk to a few restaurants which... More

It is as good as everyone says. Karen and Chris are lovely and the breakfasts are amazing.The views from the room and garden are stunning. The rooms have a small fridge and tea and coffee making facilities, they offer excellent value for money.

We stayed with Karen and Chris in September for 3 nights. The main reason for our stay in Port McMeill was to go whale watching. Our room had everything you needed with an amazing view across to Alert Bay. Breakfast was cooked by Karen, lovely food and choices available that set you up for the day. We could have listened...

At Water's Edge is a very well-maintained B&B, well-placed for visiting Telegraph Cove. Karen was welcoming and helpful and provided terrific breakfasts in her huge kitchen / dining room with its superlative views across the water and from where it is possible to wave at Chris, her husband, as he drives his water-taxi to and fro (a quieter employment than...

Very nice room overlooking the water. The hosts, Karen and Chris, were very informative about local restaurants and activities. We had hearty breakfasts to fuel our days of adventure (whale watching and hiking). And it was fun comparing notes with the other guests at the breakfast table!

At waters edge B&B was a wonderful choice & we enjoyed our 3 night stay. The drive from Victoria to Port McNeill took longer than we expected & we phoned ahead to inform the owners we would arrive late. The owners were away & Jenny was our host. A huge thank you to Jenny for making us feel welcome, booking... More
