we go I'd like to thank you again for all your help and leave you with some kind
words about the apartment for you to pass on to
From the moment we stepped foot inside the door we've felt at home.
The apartment itself is spotlessly clean and in great condition. It's
beautifully furnished, there's a modern bathroom/toilet with a great
shower and a never-ending hot water supply! A communal laundry facility
with washing-machine, dryer and sink and limited cooking facilities. We
did a majority of our cooking on the BBQ outside in the garden which
overlooks the Gorge Inlet. Even in the colder weather it was worth
throwing a steak on the BBQ just so we could take in the view.
All laundry detergents and softeners, products we needed
to clean the apartment, dish-washing liquid and even our toilet paper
for the four months we were there!
We found the apartment to be a good size for us, but we'd recommend
that most people only stay for a short term. It got a little cramped
after the first month. The location was also very handy. It's a 5 minute
stroll to the nearest bus stop where a bus leaves every 20 minutes for
the 15 minute journey downtown and it's only a 10 minute walk along
the picturesque Gorge Inlet to the nearest shopping mall which has a
supermarket, drug store, video outlet and pizza joint. There's also a
garage so there's plenty of space to park your own vehicle if you need
So, all-in-all, Amy and I were very happy with the apartment, its
location and especially the manner in which we were treated.
Please recommend it to as many people as possible.
forward to seeing you again!
What a wonderful vacation, so relaxing! Ayum house had every convenience
we needed and extras we didn't know we needed! Loved the little extras -
binoculars, bird watching guides, guidebooks for the region, a welcome gift
Beverley's personal welcome and "au revoir", etc. The two kayaks and the canoe
were a real bonus. If you love wildlife this is the vacation home for you. We
saw deer, rabbits, seals, blue herons, kingfishers, and other wildlife from the
house. A few miles away, while hiking, we were lucky enough to see orcas. The
house kept our three (active and adolescent) sons entertained and yet we could
relax. There's enough space to do your own thing. We come away with great memories
and have fallen in love with Vancouver
really enjoyed our stay there!
The location was perfect, and we didn't really have any problems with the
size. If we are out that way again (and we will be!), and need that kind
we will be in touch.
Thanks once again,
Jenny and Alan Jackson
time at Orca Point was spectacular with sitings of bobcats, otters, deer
and a variety of birds.
The Rockies were probably the highlight for us all - such magnificent mountain
vistas and wildlife every day. But first our thanks to you for your $50 cash
contribution to our ferry to Anarcortes without which our departure would
have been much more difficult. We got so used to not carrying much cash that
we were caught out at the ticket window when only cash (and preferably American
cash!) was accepted. But with your money and emptying the children's pocket
money purses we made it. And Beverley was confirmed as our Vancouver Island
guardian angel! Enjoy the summer and thank you once again for looking after
us so magnificently.
for the effort to get us into the Timbers. It was wonderful, and the gift
package you dropped off was well appreciated.

Shoal Point Condo was perfect for our group. We spent time biking along Dallas
pathways and playing by the water's edge five minutes from our condo. I want
to thank you for all your help and your kindness and for being so nice with
all of us in your wonderful country.

We want to tell you what a wonderful time we had at Ayum House. Not only
was it well appointed and clean, but conviently located to some great beaches
and hiking. The house itself is beautifully situated in a very private setting.
The kithcen was our favorite place to sit and enjoy a nice glass of wine
at the end of a day filled with incredible scenery, watching deer and rabbits,
and the occasional bald eagle. The bonus of the kayaks was special. My son
often talks about it. We had several memorable paddles out in the Sooke Basin,
watching harbor seals. We even observed an Osprey diving and catching fish.
There is a great BBQ and I enjoyed cooking with it. Our vacation constantly
surfaces in family conversations, and we talk about repeating our visit.
Thank you for a great time.
Sincerely, the Morris'

rest of our vacation was also a delight.
