“Picturesque and peaceful retreat”
Reviewed May 10, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We enjoyed everything about our stay at Seal Beach Cottage. We felt it was the best choice on the island. The cottage was clean, well equipped and tastefully decorated. We saw seals, otters, eagles and ferries. Mayne Island is a fabulous island to visit

“Cherished Family Memories & a Stunning View :)”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My family and I very much enjoyed our stay at the cottage. So cozy and private. Stunning views! Our only complaint is that our stay wasn't nearly long enough! We will definitely be coming back! :)

“Great holiday spot!”
Reviewed April 6, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

We rented out the whole Seal Beach Cottage and Campsite for our wedding. Some people stayed in the cottage, while others camped. It's a beautiful spot and very well maintained. The cottage is cozy and beautifully decorated, and the campsites are right on the water among the trees. The owners are super friendly and accommodating, and they made our 100 guests feel very welcomed! I highly recommend the cottage and/or campsite for a weekend getaway for family and friends or for events!

“Relaxation at Seal Beach”
Reviewed March 31, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The Seal Beach Cottage was an ideal spot to get away and relax next to the ocean. We enjoyed watching the passing ferries and playful seals in the bay. We found the cottage to be cozy and well equipped and we felt like it was a home away from home. The cottage is equally suited for a couple or family of four. The property itself was gorgeous and we enjoyed walking with your dog throughout the trails and beach.

“The weather wasn't good but the comfortable cottage made up for that.”
Reviewed March 26, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We had the cottage to ourselves so enjoyed family time with no distractions. just what we needed. Happily we found the kitchen well equipped. the whole place was spotless. No soap or shampoo in the bathroom, but lovely towels for the four of us and very comfortable beds.The air was cleaner, the stars brighter, and the forest more beautiful than anywhere else I've been for years.

“Great Place to Relax”
Reviewed March 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

Seal Beach Cottage is an incredible getaway! Explore the beach and surrounding area, ride your bike or walk to town or just relax! We've been here two summers in a row for a week each time with our 5 and 11 year olds and would not hesitate to go back-a slice of paradise. The accommodation is great and set up for anything you might need and the owners are friendly.

“Idyllic, relaxing small island perfection!!”
Reviewed March 2, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

What a perfect spot for a relaxing getaway! We just spent a wonderful weekend at Seal Beach cottage with our two girls, 5 & 8, and the cottage was perfect in every way, the location stunning! While we had resided on Mayne for years, we had never stayed at Seal Beach before, and now that we have, it will be our return spot! The cottage had everything we needed to sink back into quiet, contemplative island living, and everything was beautifully appointed and thoughtfully chosen. We didn't see a soul in the almost 3 days at the cottage and felt very privileged to have such an incredibly private getaway, thank you!
