“Can't beat the view”
Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Absolutely loved the view of the ocean from the wrap around balcony.
The huge kitchen island was my favourite spot to be most times of the day. The view from there was great.
Did not care for the steep driveway however we did have a 4wd so the husbands drove down & the ladies walked. No problem.
There is plenty to see & do on the island including a great 9 hole golf course and some fabulous hiking trails (minus the bears).
Wonderful lunch spots throughout, but enjoyed our BBQ dinners at the cottage.
Would definately recommend.

Thank you Elaine for your kind review. The newly renovated open concept kitchen with large gorgeous granite island is a guest favorite. Combine that with the comfortable living room, fireplace and spectacular views and we agree, the Lazy Bowen Hideaway is a highly recommended getaway destination.

“Amazing Birthday Weekend”
Reviewed February 22, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Thanks Jan for this wonderful cozy cottage!

We were surprised that we can find everything in the cottage. Pots, pans, spices, rice, hair dryer, puzzles, etc. Very comfortable sofa and bed! Lots of blankets around, which is perfect for winter time.

We enjoyed dinner and drinks around the fireplace. Had homemade brunch on the deck. Amazing view!

I would defintely return and recommend lazy Bowen to my friends and families!

Again, thx Jan!

So glad to hear that you had a wonderful birthday weekend at the Lazy Bowen Hideaway. We are loving that you enjoyed your brunch on our new dining deck just off of the kitchen and dining room. Or maybe you sat on our OTHER new waterfront deck? So many choices and all with the sound of the waves and magnificent views. My goal is for our guests to be comfortable whether sleeping, sitting or snuggled under a cozy throw. Sounds like we achieved our goal. Love to have you return soon. Jan

This was one of the most beautiful, perfectly appointed places I have ever stayed in. It is even more perfect than the pictures. Sitting on the various decks, watching the world go by; it was enough to make us want to move in permanently!

Jan was outstanding; quick to respond and help us out and even though we TOTALLY screwed up on the ferry times and kept her poor driver waiting (we apologize, again :( )
she couldn't have been more lovely.

Everything you need is there: it's so refreshing to go into a vacation rental and every spice you need for cooking. The beds were perfection and the decor was amazing.

You do, however, need a four wheel drive to get down to the house, or, in our case, we hiked down and it wasn't a big deal even with suitcases and bags of groceries. If you are organized and show up on time (sorry again), a wonderful woman will drive you down, but we felt so badly we paid penance by walking. There was also the benefit of being far away from everything, but for anyone with issues walking or whatever, it's a bit of a steep climb.

Would go back....and Jan, I promise we will get the ferry schedule right. ;)

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Thank you so much for taking your time to write a lovely review. We LOVED that you enjoyed the Lazy Bowen Hideaway. We have since renovated the kitchen and all those spices have lots of room in their new drawers. Love to have you both return again..........Jan.

Thank you Ariane for sharing your relaxing experience at the Lazy Bowen Hideaway. Lucky for you to see the Sunday sailing club in the picture windows. It can be quite an impressive site. So glad you found the kitchen organized and complete. We are proud to say we have the best cleaners on Bowen and I know that Anne, my lead cleaner just spent a very long time making sure every pot, pan, bowl, glassware and spoon was in the "right" place. It is a never ending task and we are so glad that you appreciated the organization. We look forward to your next stay........Jan
