Jo-Anne and Doug were wonderful hosts to us - they met us from the bus (2 cars needed!) They gave us a great evening meal to welcome us and meet their neighbours. The hospitality they gave us was outstanding and we really appreciated it. They live in a wonderful location - we loved watching the cruise ships go by while sitting around an outdoor fire in the evenings - bliss.
We enjoyed several July days in this spacious home with lawns down to the beach, and beyond, a view of the Coast Range of mountains. We had some wonderful walks and terrific night skies. This home provides a delightful experience of Vancouver Island living and we highly recommend it to other HomeLink members.
Thank you Jo-Anne & Doug ,for making our exchange so welcoming .We had an amazing time in your beautiful home,it was so lovely to be woken up by sea lions ,to spot deer and see humming birds in your garden .We enjoyed our time exploring the island and will certainly be returning one day. Couldn't have wished for a better exchange,thank you both and your lovely neighbours for their help and kindness !
Jo-Anne and Doug made our stay very special and very comfortable. We were traveling with our daughter who was 6 months old; they helped get things ready in their home that made it much easier for us - high chair, cot and lots of books and toys. Their home was very comfortable and had lots of space. All facilities were provided and even a hot tub to enjoy views of the sea. There were kayaks and bikes too which were really handy. Jo-Anne was all ways quick to respond with communications and made our first exchange experience very smooth and easy. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay in their home at Miracle Beach its in a beautiful setting.
Thank you for that lovely exchange. We really did get a chance to relax, enjoy the beach and the wildlife. We had deer in the garden, eagles in the trees, and a heron on the beach. And to fully relax, we had a hot tub! It was all a far cry from the hustle and bustle of the city of Vancouver and it was just what we needed . Regards Bryan & Margie
