We had a great night at Joan’s place with my parents! We loved the atmosphere and everything was as perfect as it seemed on the website. I will never forget the starry night in my bed :) + Joan was very quick to respond with any question!

Amazing space, beautiful, peaceful and clean! Bed is very comfy, place is situated at the top of a gorgeous forested area in North Saanich. Birds singing, fresh air. If you like peace and quiet, this is it.

Thank you Dan! We love our "gem in the forest'. It is as you describe..birds singing, fresh air, and if you are lucky you will hear the frogs even! Next time you will have to hike the trails behind the house. Enjoy your visit with family, and we hope to see you and Kait again.

This is an amazingly cute space. It's completely private and extremely clean and very well appointed. We loved the serene, beautiful yard and went on a lovely 3km walk / hike around the wilderness park abutting her property. We will definitely be back!

Thank you! I am glad you spotted the deer...we often tell guests that the deer are regular visitors, but few get to see them. Next time a longer visit is in order. We would love to have you back. Joan
