We loved our stay. Our hosts made us most welcome and the chocolate banana cake was a real treat. We sat on the verandah, watched the birdlife and activities on the water, drank cups of tea with our cake and loved every moment of our beautiful setting.

After a hectic period of travelling and touring, this was a peaceful retreat and we found we indulged in BBQ meals, glasses of wine and the pleasure of exploring the beach.

“Perfect”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed 3 nights and would have stayed longer if we could plan it over. The location was incredible. It was difficult to leave the house because who wants to get out of a hot tub with that view?? We had everything we needed - lovely beds, well-appointed kitchen fully stocked, chairs on the porch under heat lamps if needed, fireplaces, fire pit with plenty of wood on beach, eagles and herons and songbirds everywhere, the list goes on... Georges had us checked in and comfy with the house in minutes and gave us great restaurant and activity options and then was out the door to leave us to it; returning later to leave us a homemade carrot cake that his partner had made. What?! I cannot wait to return.

“Wonderful place”

We stayed at the Taste of Zanzibar for nine days and fell in love with the place. The house is very comfortable and George and Romina really ensure that you have all you need to make the stay as nice as possible. They have a vey well equipped kitchen and all the basic things you may need are provided (tea, coffee, sugar, cooking oil,...). They even brought us a fantastic cake, freshly baked muffins and delicious cookies. The hot tub is great after you have been hiking all day.
The location is fantastic. Right by the sea. You can walk down the rocky beach. This is what we really enjoyed the most. In the morning when the tide was low we explored the shore, where you find hundreds of starfish, anemones, oysters,...All day long you can see lovely seabirds and many seals. We even saw bold eagles. At night we had beach fires, roasting marshmallows.
I loved falling sleep to the sound of the sea and waking up to the wonderful colours of the sunrise.
This really has to be one of the nicest places we have ever stayed in. Our 10 year old thoroughly enjoyed it.
There is plenty to do around Campbell river. George gave us some advice and there is an informative folder in the house. We booked a couple of wildlife watching tours with Aboriginal journeys and went for many treks. Strathcona national park is only an hour away and the coast has many trails that are easy and provide good wildlife watching.

We spent a wonderful 3 days in this lovely house with fabulous views across the sea. Loads of room in the garden extending to the beach. We had great weather so spent evenings on the porch or sitting on driftwood in the sand, watching boats go by! House was very well equipped & and clean. Hosts very welcoming. We would highly recommend this holiday rental.

This is a wonderful character home right on the water. Go to sleep at night listening to the sounds of the waves and wake up in the morning to the sound of sea birds. My son enjoyed building fires in the fire pit right on the beach. The beach is very rocky and has a lot of sea weed so you can't swim but when the tide goes out, you can search for crabs, starfish and other sea creatures. We were brought fresh baked muffins and cookies and there were bowl fulls of seasoned nuts upon our arrival. all the necessities are there waiting for you including professional hair products. We loved having a glass of wine in the hot tub while enjoying the view of ocean and mountains. The house is back off the main road a bit so you don't get the noise of the highway disturbing you. It is not as modern as some rentals but the property more than makes up for that. There is room for small kids to run around as long as they have someone watching them as it very easy to access the water. I didn't find a lot to do in the area for kids. We wanted to go whale watching but it was really expensive. We were there for a family wedding so we didn't have a whole lot of time to explore. We did go over to Quadra Island but were disappointed, we chose our place to eat based on reviews in the guide book and were not overly happy with their choices so I suggest speaking with somebody local who can give better ideas on places.
Would definitely recommend staying at Zanzibar!!!
