Willow Guest House
Ranked #1 of 15 Courtenay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We have now stayed at Willow Guest House on five separate occasions over the last four years. Warren and Dee have never failed to achieve the same level of excellence in their hosting of us and in the way their B & B is managed and kept in such immaculate condition. We will not repeat the comments we previously made. Many of you have said exactly the same things. What we will say, however, is that the quality of our relationship with them has deepened and become more valued each time we return. We so highly recommend this facility and encourage travelers to do themselves a favor by sampling Dee and Warren' hospitality. We plan to keep going!

Room Tip: Both rooms are excellent. The Nautical Room is somewhat larger and can accommodate a third person.

Colin & I are regulars to the island & have always dreamed of having our own place by the sea. This past July we found ourselves looking at property in Warren & Dee's neighbourhood, and were looking at a lot when they came along. We rolled down our window to ask if they knew about the property, 10 minutes later we were touring their B& B, 20 minutes later we were driving away with a promise to return. Fast forward to Sept, when we came to the island to realize our dream & buy property. Willow Guest House was home base while we worked with a realtor for 5 days to find "that perfect spot", which we did!! The best part was having a "home" to come back to each night after our long, stressful days, having the expertise & wisdom of Warren & Dee to run ideas past. They made the whole experience so much easier, and we were so happy to take them to see our little piece of heaven, as we said they were almost as emotionally invested as we were ! Warren & Dee are perfect for this B & B gig !! There is no need to comment on the food/rooms etc, it has all been said again & again in other reviews. Our experience was the same...but luckily for us, we came as guests and left with life long friends. We can't wait to move to the island so we can see Warren & Dee more often, they are very special folks. And now they wear cool socks so we like them even more (hee ! hee !) Couldn't resist xoxo

In order to fully appreciate these guest, you should understand that Colin & Darcy have convinced us that wine is no longer just a breakfast drink...albeit "only on the weekends!"
As has been said...people come into your lives for a minute or a day or a lifetime but always for a reason. I suspect that Darcy & Colin will be lifelong friends. They bring an appreciation...no...a zest for life that they so want to share with family and friends. Although these two are as mismatched as a pair of rainbow coloured socks, their obvious affection for each other is apparent. Their review says it best...they came as guests and have left as friends...

We stayed here for a night en route from north to south and it was picked based on the good reviews. Not disappointed at all - very impressed with the total attention to detail, warm welcome and excellent breakfast. The room was superbly decorated and the bed as comfortable as any. We look forward to staying again

We spent three very comfortable nights at the Willow Guest House. Upon meeting our hosts, Dee and Warren we felt like we were staying with old friends. The friendly banter, delicious breakfast and amenities in our bright, quiet room made our stay that much more enjoyable. When we return to visit the island in the future, the Willow Guest House would be our first choice. Thank you Dee and Warren . Helen and Chien, Hamilton Ontario

Room Tip: Willow Guest room faces away from the neighbors and is very quiet.

The owners, Dee and Warren, were extremely accommodating and made us feel like family. They helped us plan our excursions each day to make sure we would be happy with the entire Courtenay experience. The breakfasts were outstanding and the house is spotless!

Through the use of Tripadvisor we were able to find this outstanding B&B. This resort is masquerading as a B&B. Wonderful well-appointed rooms, fully equipped individual bathrooms, breakfasts that are out of this world to towels for the beach. These amenities go well beyond the norm for a B&B. As for the proprietors, Dee and Warren, they are genuine, warm and welcoming hosts who cannot do enough to make your stay a memorable event. We look forward to our next visit to that area as we now consider a stay at Willow Gate House an integral part of our holiday.

From the moment my daughter and I arrived and were warmly welcomed by Dee and Warren, we felt right at home. They are such gracious people and the perfect host and hostess. Their sense of humour, interesting stories and genuine interest in their guest's comfort made our stay memorable and we were sad when it was time to leave. Their home is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Shelley and I enjoyed being able to chat with Dee and Warren as our breakfast was being prepared. It felt just like family. And breakfasts were absolutely delicious and so beautifully presented! Can't wait to return and would highly recommend this charming B & B.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Nautical Room which was spacious and had a lovely view of the garden.
