After staying at several locations around the world you tend to accept the website photos are staged to look better than the usual aging reality provides. HOWEVER! this property by far exceeds any expectation you may have. Amazing views of the estuary, eagles, dear, humming birds etc directly outside of the floor to ceiling windows, if this was not enough... More

My wife and I had a relaxing three day stay here. The setting is very pretty, and the owners have put a lot of effort into the landscaping of the property, which has fresh water ponds, all sorts of plants, as well as lazy rivulets to the ocean. You'll see wildlife -- we saw blue heron, quail, and many redwing... More

Not to sound like a braggart, but I have stayed in some of the most beautiful hotels in the world and "Inn The Estuarty" is by far one of the best. We had a lot of choices on the island, and narrowed it down to the Inn, and upon arrival we were completely blown away. The owners Howard & Marianne... More

If you ever get the opportunity to stay here I'd jump on it. It's magnificent, and like no other place. You literally feel like you're right in the marshland but in the comfort of an ultra modern home. The landscape is breath taking. I must've seen half a dozen different types of birds during breakfast alone. Hosts, Marianne and Harold,... More

This is the most memorable place we've ever stayed - and we travel a lot. Our room was beautifully and thoughtfully furnished - right outside our glass door and wall of windows was a pond and view of the bay. Our first afternoon we just sat on the patio and watched the wind surfers in the bay. Living room area,... More

Not only are Marianne and Harold amazing hosts, they are our very special friends! We stayed in the new suite and awoke every morning to a view of the bay and numerous wildlife. One morning a deer was out by the pond grazing. We could not have had a more relaxing and yet hectic week at The Inn. Our room... More

This has to be the most unique experience ever, comfortable beds, private, peaceful...the list goes on. The host and hostess were such nice people, I will miss them. I even found the wildlife friendly, the birds just sit and watch you watch them. You will be sorry that you didn't make your trip longer.

Very cosy but spacious and well appointed unit close to Parksville - very quiet location We enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere at the estuary. We stayed for 2 nights in March 2013 on our way from Victoria to Tofino which gave us plenty of time to look round the area and explore local marinas, lakes , beaches ,waterfalls and caves
