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

We stayed for three nights at this lovely spot. Karen is a very helpful, caring host and her husband Chris we experienced as being very entertaining with all he has to tell. The rooms are downstairs from the family room with separate entrances each. You can leave your bed in the morning and walk only a few steps right down... More

"Awesome" as the Canadians say ! Stopped here for 4 nights and Karen & Chris or Prancey as he likes to be called were the perfect hosts. Lots of laughter, great stories and information over a lovely breakfast ! The views from At Waters Edge are amazing with beautiful sun sets. While at Port Mc Neill take time to have... More

Easy to find with a view across to Malcolm Island. The room was everything you need with a good ensuite. Beautifully kept and very clean. The veranda sitting area was ideal with the views across the water. Plenty of parking space. Welcoming and the breakfast was cooked to order. The food was really good.

After a long and tiring journey from Sydney, Australia to Port McNeill, we arrived at our destination at six in the evening to Karen and Kris's warm welcome and friendly smile in their little piece of paradise in this remote outcrop of Vancouver Island. All I can say is this is one of the best B&B's we have had the... More

We stayed at this beautiful waterfront property for three nights and enjoyed the wonderful views and great hospitality. The B&B has four bedrooms (with en suite bathrooms) which are fairly basic, but do have a TV, fridge and coffee making facilities. However, what makes this place so special is its location right at the sea and the owners Karen and... More
