Reviewed June 17, 2013

We stopped on our way when we were travelling across Vancouver Island. Dee and Warren are both lovely people, I could not imagine two people better fitted for this job. They made us feel at home, and breakfast is AMAZING.
The only thing i am sad about is that we didn't stay any longer, but definitely going back

It was a pleasure having Nele & her husband Peter in our home. These are professional people who's time away is very valuable to them. The conversation was easy and yes their stay was far too short as Dee and I thoroughly enjoyed their company...Tet sends her regards!

Thanks to Dee and Warren for a wonderful stay in their delightful bed and breakfast. It was such a treat to feel so completely at home and comfortable. The room was spotlessly clean (and I am a bit of a clean freak), comfortable and really tastefully decorated. Our hosts were welcoming, interesting, and a lot of fun. They did go 'above and beyond' and we will definitely return if we are ever back in the area.

Shaina, Michael & Scotia were with us for two nights. These are folks that own a business similar to our B&B in NSW, Australia so their comments come as high praise to Dee & I and we thank them for their review. Shaina & Michael have demonstrated to us what truly loving parents they are and our doors are open to their return visit...wishing you much success Scotia!

During our trip on Vancouver Island we stayed two nights in this excellent BB.
Both Dee and Warren were perfect in advising us to see the most impressive sites of this part of the island (surroundings of Couternay), we received a warm welcome at the arrival in their very tasteful furnitured home.
A special item was the surprise at the morning meals, a unique breakfast served at a table with special care made by Warren. The breakfast was every morning of a different composition and excellent taste of local products. Facilities to rest and sleep were excellent.
They worked as a solid and guest-friendly team giving us the feeling being at home.

First, I would like to thank Warren & Dee (owners) again for providing us with warm accommodation on last Friday night.

The room was neat, equipped and with home feeling. Not to mention the homemade waffle breakfast, my friends who saw my photos appreciate that. The fruit was fresh and local.

Unlike most other B&Bs, Willow Guest House provided us with exceptional customer service and care with heart. My friend and I enjoyed very much staying there over the weekend. Somehow I think it worths more to stay there instead of big hotels with similar rates (as breakfast for both are included which could save us 20-30 bucks)

I would certainly recommand anybody going to the Comox Valley to stay at Warren's and
Dee's Bed & Breakfast.
You will never forget their kindness and hospitality, you feel so welcome as soon as you walk into the door.
They have a beautiful decorated house, which is very enjoyable.
The Breakfast is incredible good, and the presentation makes it even better.
They are a wonderful couple with a wonderful Bed & Breakfast.
Highly Recommanded

Room Tip: Located just off Highway 19A, but B @ B is located at quiet location

My sister and I stayed at "Willow Guest House" at the beginning of our round trip through Canada in September 2012 and there we met a wonderful couple in Dee and Warren, our hosts. They made us feel at home with their warm and personal welcome and immediatly offered us coffee and tea. We booked the "Nautical Suite", a beautiful and lovingly furnished room with a lot of suitable details which we loved from the first second. We spent our evening in the homey living room with a view towards the ocean.
Breakfast was prepared by Dee and Waaren working in perfect harmony; with homemade yoghurt (delicious, Warren!) and cornmeal back bacon with French toast (also delicious, Dee). My sister couldn't chew very well because of a jaw operation and Dee and Warren prepared something special for her.
But what was the best B&B without its hosts?
And that makes "Willow Guest House" so special and unique... Dee and Warren are a couple who love to meet new people and we could see and feel that it is their passion to have their guests enjoy the most comfortable stay they ever had.

Dee and Warren. It was a pleasure for us to meet you and we will never forget you!

We had the absolute pleasure of checking out the Willow Guest House over the Remembrance Day long weekend. (They had offered a special rate for military members, and my hubby took advantage of it to surprise me with a weekend away). The rooms are beautiful, the views stunning, the food out of this world, and the company with Warren and Dee (owners) was just beyond compare. Made even more impressive by the fact that they've renovated this entire place by themselves, you just have to see it to believe it. Would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a weekend away - whether from out of town, or wanting a 'Stay-cation' in the Comox Valley.

Room Tip: There are only two rooms to choose from, and you can't go wrong in either one. We were in the Na...
