“We enjoyed a peaceful environment all while being surrounded by nature and its beauty!”
Reviewed January 7, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We enjoyed a spacious and peaceful environment with an amazing view...has a real "home " feeling the moment you walk into the back yard!! Very welcoming and central to Courtney and Qualicum Beach... Hadn't really seen this part of the island and was able to do quite a bit of sightseeing and local activities... Another really amazing part of the trip was that we had a session with Bev.. great job!! Thank you again for everything !!!

Thank you Sandy and Candice for taking the time to write this very complimentary review. I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay here at Oceanside Haven and that you took advantage of having a Healing Touch treatment as well. It is always very gratifying to me when someone has such a positive result from their treatments. I hope to see both of you again in the near future.

“breathtaking view!”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We arrived last week to a clean and tidy suite awaiting for us. Bev the owner was waiting for us, as well as a deer on the street. The suite was functional for our small family, the bedrooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. The living room was comfortable and had a t.v. and dvd player which came in handy for evenings times with our small children. The kitchen/ bar set up was a quaint idea. The only downside was not having a stove to use, but we were well aware of that before we arrived and worked around it.
The views were beautiful and we enjoyed sitting outside in the yard and drinking in the scenery! Bev was very gracious to our young children who ran around and asked her a lot of questions. We did make it down to the ocean and it is a short distance from property, but the stairs - access way is a tad bit challenging with small children. For adults it is no problem.
We hope to return to this rental next year and other years to come. We would highly recommend this property if you want a relaxing stress free holiday. Thank you Bev!

Thank you for your very complimentary thoughts on Oceanside Haven. With regards to the full stove, I have considered putting one in but it would be major expense for me and with the many other appliances for cooking that are in the suite along with the BBQ, the majority of my guests, including monthly stays, find that there are ample utensils and appliances for cooking anything one would want. However it remains to be a consideration for the future.
It was my pleasure having you and your family here and I do hope you will come again. All the Best. Bev

This is a beautiful, quiet home on the ocean side. The views were amazing from inside the rental, by the gardens outside, at the ocean's water. Friendly!

“Fab - u - lous!”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I stayed at this amazingly beautiful holiday home with my husband and 15 yr old son. The accommodation was spotless, spacious and had a spectacular view. The owner was very friendly and helpful and if I ever return to Vancouver Island I will definitely be returning to this property. We did have to travel quite a distance to some tourist spots .... Telegraph Cove was our furthest trip from the accommodation - a 7 hr round trip BUT the unforgettable whale watching experience we had far out weighed any negatives regarding the distance. The three closest places we enjoyed were Cathedral Grove - an ancient forest with well appointed paths, Mt Washington chair lift which affords excellent views and Horne caves where you can have a family friendly guided tour in a cave which is especially suitable for teenagers. If you're looking for a quality, impressive and yet quiet accommodation this ticks all the boxes! I cannot recommend it enough!

“Nice, quiet apartment with fireplace and ocean view”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We had a great time at your place and felt at home all time. Theres one master bedroom and one bedroom with two single beds and a huge living room with an adapted kitchen space. Its very clean and you can find everything you need, from kitchen equipment to toilet paper and additional blankets. Highlight of our stay was a NES including Super Mario Bros!
The location is close to the Island Highway, but so far away not to hear any noise at all. You have direct access to the shore via a stairway.

We have a lot of memories from our trip. It truly was one the best vacations we ever had. The ads were right this really is a great place to be. From the bald eagles that fly overhead to the various sea life that you can find in the beach. This place place was truly remarkable. We will definitely remember this trip for years to come.
