We loved the location. It was very convenient to biking the cowichan valley rail trail. The property was beautiful and private. It was serene. We loved having breakfast on the deck looking over the river and listening to the birds. The fire pit was a nice feature. We would have l…

This place is magical! Tucked away in the trees, next to the Koksilah river (and a few minutes walk from the Kinsol Trestle), Ezio's place is as relaxing an escape as you can imagine - and has a hot tub, sauna, and swimming hole to boot! Highly recommended for larger groups. Ezio…

We had a wonderful stay at Ezio's Eaglenest Sanctuary (aka "Riverside Vacation and Workshop"). It is an amazing property in terms of beauty, privacy (no traffic or neighbor sounds at all), and overall atmosphere. We especially loved climbing into the custom-built outdoor hot tub …

Response from Ezio:
Why I had to cancel. In the beginning of March I accepted a reservation from Party A and in an unexpected turn of events, I neglected to write it down in my calendar. On March 17, I received a reservation from Party B on Airbnb. I am not used to the Airbnb system of accepting or rejecting a reservation on the first 24 hrs. and I mistakenly accepted Party B reservation. After catching my mistake in less than 12 hrs. I wrote to Party B and told them I had made a mistake and had to cancel her reservation, less than 24 hrs. after it was made. I am sorry for my mistake. I took the course than I thought was better, to honor the oldest reservation.
