The location and grounds of Marians were stunning. We enjoyed the retreat"s amenities and Ian was very welcoming. We hiked quite a bit and all the parks and trails were interesting and fun. We would love to visit again.

“Wonderful and Very Relaxing”
Reviewed April 13, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Just returned from 3 nights at Marian's on the Coast. What a beautiful serene place, clean, and well maintained. Their suite is very private with your own deck looking over Thornborough Channel with Gambier Island and the mountains in the background. Enjoyed the soaring birds, the croaking frogs, and the hot tub. The ability to cook, bbq and have our dogs with us was a very big plus. Mary and Ian were gracious hosts. We will return to this amazing vacation spot.

“Outstanding location - pictures don't do it justice.”
Reviewed February 22, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We decided to spend a couple nights at this location due to the outstanding reviews and beautiful pictures we saw online. Neither do it justice. Also, the owners are phenomenal people who are happy to chat when you wish, or give you privacy when that's what you need. Always accommodating. As for the rental, it's perfect. The view is extraordinary and the place is clean, quant, and with everything you need. If you're looking for a perfect little getaway, you just found it. We can't wait to go back next time we need a little slice of heaven at a very affordable price. Thanks for everything! We couldn't have asked for more...

“BEAUTIFUL!”
Reviewed February 16, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

A wonderful and breath-taking view of the water and mountains! My wife and I were relaxing in the hot tub watching the moon rise from the peak of the mountains and gazed up at the stars and of course our little chihuahua, Daisy enjoyed herself under covers of blankets on our camp chair beside the tub. :) We can't thank Mary and Ian W. enough for our cute little getaway! Much appreciated! :D

“We loved it and so did our puppy!”
Reviewed July 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We enjoyed a lovely weekend away with our 4 month old puppy at Marian's on the coast. The photos on their site do not do it justice! The view is totally amazing! the first night we enjoyed a sunset with orcas swimming by! We loved the private hot tub with ocean views. We loved that the suite was super dog friendly complete with home made treats for our girl! We also loved the yummy baking for us humans! They even offer dog sitting if you want to have an evening out without your pup. The hosts were absolutely lovely and super helpful. We high recommend this spot and will be back !
