Hi fellow travelers, come and enjoy some time in our beautiful Cowichan Valley.
Semi-rural setting, very quiet bedroom, huge kid-friendly backyard (there is even a tiny forest with gigantic cedar trees!), pet friendly, no TV, lots of boardgames :-)


Location, location, location! We live in the heart of the amazing Cowichan Valley, in a semi-rural setting. And only 15 minutes from Duncan, the city of totems and 40 minutes from Victoria, and the drive is beautiful (Malahat Summit).
The room is about 150 sq.ft, very private and quiet, away from the rest of the house. It can accommodate 2 adults and 2 kids (1 queen size bed and several bed options for kids, just ask us). You have to go through our garage to get to the bedroom, so it is not the prettiest walk, but at the end awaits your super-quiet room :-) And the room itself is very cute and comfy.
We also have an additional room that we can use for 2-3 extra people but please check with us first that it is available, and understand that we would charge a little extra, with an Airbnb "special offer", as it takes some extra work for us to get it ready.
Fully fenced property.
Parking space: available on the property within the fence.
Kid friendly: Playground with 3 swings and 1 slide, lots of fun toys and a little wooded area for kids to have fun and get tired.
Pets: well-mannered pets welcome (for the comfort of all of our guests, no pets on furniture). We also have 2 medium/large dogs (born in 2015) who sleep in their crates at night and play in their big fenced dog yard during the day :-)

Akses tamu

You will have access to our huge kitchen, laundry, bathroom (shared), living room, backyard with mini-forest, fenced playground (swing set and slide), lots of board games (Settlers of Catan, Puerto Rico, Agricola, Ticket to Ride and many more), internet (wifi or ethernet) and kids toys. You can also rent our bikes and camping gear for a small fee if you let us know in advance or upon arrival.
No TV, No Microwave.

Interaksi dengan tamu

We respect our guests' privacy and would only interact with them if they wish to, or need specific information.
As your host we will be here to greet you and show you around on your arrival. We are happy to spend some evenings chatting and eating dinner together if you feel like it. That being said, with 2 young kids (born in 2011 and 2013), Leah the amazing mom works on weekends and Adrien the papa works full time during the week, so we can be tired at the end of the day, and are generally more likely to interact with guests during the weekend :-)

We had a great time at Adrien's and Leah's place! They are a lovely family, very friendly and welcoming and our son had a lot of fun with their kids. Adrien was a great host, very helpful and generous, gave us medicine for our son and cooked for us breakfast. The room was perfect - private, clean and cozy and we slept so well in there! We enjoyed their rustic garden very much and spent both evenings outside by the fire.

Adrien und seine Familie waren stets freundlich, entgegenkommend und gesprächsbereit. Wer Kinder mag wird sich hier (zusätzlich) wohl fühlen. Selbst wenn ich für jede Mahlzeit einiges zahlen musste - zu viel, für das was ich gegessen habe - bin ich ohne Probleme und gerne versorgt worden. Ich habe mich fast wie zuhause gefühlt (auch weil in der Familie vieles so abläuft, wie ich es gewohnt war). Die Dinge, die nicht so gut waren rücken daher etwas in den Hintergrund. Ich kann daher nur empfehlen hier zu sein-allerdings ist es von Vorteil, wenn man ein Auto hat.

Thanks for your honesty Jerome. we will try to improve future guests' experiences, but I would like to reply to your comments. In summary, had you read our profile before booking, you would have avoided misinformed expectations. Specifically regarding the meals that you feel you paid too much for... first of all as indicated on my profile, meals are NOT included. Guests are welcome to bring their food and cook for themselves in our kitchen (and they usually do), there is an entire shelf in the fridge for Airbnb guests to store their food. Second of all, you had 5 meals for a total of $25... you even said yourself that it was like at the restaurant (at least for one of the meals which cost me a lot more than $5 per person to make). And finally I will remind you ALL the food you ate here was organic, sustainably caught fish and humanely treated meats, which costs 3-5 times more than conventional products, at least here on Vancouver Island. I wish you had expressed your feelings to me while you were here, as prompted many times... I hope this clarifies things and that your experience was not spoiled by your idea of the cost of food on Vancouver Island. Regarding the distance from Victoria, I don't know what to say, it is 35 minutes away by car, and public transit here is very restricted... AS EXPLAINED IN OUR PROFILE and as easily corroborated by (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps. As for the cleanliness, I apologize if the place was not spotless, we do live in a country setting with 2 dogs and 2 young kids. We do try to keep the place clean to the best of our ability. Once again, this is mentioned in our profile. Again, thanks for your honesty, we had a great time having you here, and we hope you find what you are looking for during your trip in Canada. Cheers

Very welcoming family, great accommodation in a wonderful location in beautiful Cobble Hill. Very knowledgable in recommending points of interest to see and do. Lilou and Amalia are adorable and the dogs are a lot of fun, too! A great stay!

Our stay with Adrien and his family was an absolute delight! We felt warmly welcomed immediately upon arrival, with the family's easygoing and friendly nature. The room is as described, and at the other side of the house, which lends itself to privacy, and in our case, a sleep-in without noticing that the family had been up and about for hours. Adrien offered to come pick us up from the wedding we were attending - though we didn't take him up on it, we were blown away by the generosity of the offer. He also made the best french toast we've ever had (we were still talking about it on the ferry ride back! I think the cast iron pan must be the key!)! Spending time with Amalia and Lilou was such an unexpected bonus - from the sandbox to the swings, cuddles to playtime, was such a treat! And such a joy to see Adrien with the kids - clearly an amazing papa! (Leah, as well, though we only saw her in the morning for a shorter period of time.) This was the most comfortable I've felt at an AirBnb where space was shared with the hosts. Thank you so much Adrien, Leah, Bilou, and Amalia - we had such a wonderful time!

This was my first experience with airbnb so I didn't know what to expect but my fears were erased when I met Adrien and his family, they welcomed me into their home with open arms. I had a great weekend riding my bike around the area with my son with the advice on where to go. I was even invited to and attended dinner which cooked with veggies from their back yard! Overall a very pleasant and refreshing experience. If you are looking for quite and clean room and like feeling like you are part of the family then all is good. They do have two adorable kids, ages 2 & 5 and 2 dogs (outside) so if you don't mind that ( i didn't) then I would recommend it.

I (Adrien) am French, my kids (5 and 3) are Canadian! Fun family :-) We have lived in BC since 2009, and on Vancouver Island since 2013. This is an amazing place to live, and for you to visit. We love the outdoors (unlimited options for hiking, camping, beaches...) as much as we …
