“Best weekend ever!”
Reviewed June 5, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The cottage is in a Great Location, equipped with an awesome deck and hot tub. Every night we watched the beautiful mountain sunsets whilst enjoying a beverage. . . from the hot tub! What else do you need? So good we have already reserved again.

“A little piece of Heaven on earth”
Reviewed April 18, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A breath-taking location with amazing, unobstructed views of the ocean, scattered islands, beautiful sunsets, and Nanaimo in the distance. My first reaction as I walked on the deck was "WOW". The view overlooking the ocean is magnificent. The beach is a short 5 minute stroll down a path by a large stream with the sound of rushing water and mini waterfalls. You are overcome with a sense of peace and tranquility walking around the property and the cottage is well equipped, comfortable, and homey. Gail, the owner, is awesome and extremely helpful. This was my first time staying at Bluewater Cottage; I will be back for sure!

“We never wanted to leave!”
Reviewed October 25, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Where should I start? On arrival, the first thing you see is the view. And what a view! They built a multi-tiered deck to give guests the best possible experience (thank you!). The second thing we noticed was the hot tub, which we enjoyed rain or shine. Third was proximity to hiking, which was less than 5 minutes away and no need to drive there. Indoors is very comfortable and large windows allow you to enjoy the view even when indoors. The kitchen may not have a dishwasher but it is stocked with all manner of herbs and spices and condiments that you might want or wish for while staying. The fireplace is no longer operational but it has been replaced by a gas unit, like the BBQ, both of which came in handy when power went out during a wind storm (that's October in the Lower Mainland). Gail provided us with plenty of candles and we carried on as if nothing happened. Power came on a few hours later and we barely noticed. I would book this place again in a second.

We had a wonderful stay at the Bluewater Cottage. It was just as advertised and how others have previously described. Our stay was peaceful, quiet and so relaxing. The cottage itself is spacious, bright, homey and very welcoming. The large enclosed wrap-around deck and short distance to the beach were perfect for our dogs. The ocean views were breathtaking and hot tub was enjoyed each night while watching the sunset. We had good communication with the owner. She was very accommodating and available if we had any questions. We hope to come back again and would recommend.
