Simply Safari Suite Pet Friendly with Ocean View!

Simply Safari Guest Suite is reminiscent of the luxury lodges in Africa! It is loaded with the rich colors of the bush and unique (and fairly traded) art and craft … but … look out your window and it is our beautiful Pacific Ocean and enormous cedar trees that you will see! The suite is perfectly located within a 10 minute walk or 3 minute drive from Snug Cove Ferry Dock and Pebbly Beach is a 2 minute walk - bring your bathing suit the water is fabulous!

Guests enjoy a comfy bedroom with pillow topped queen bed, cozy electric fireplace and the sounds and sights of the creek below. There is a deck off this room where you can sit and relish the view of the boats Deep Bay and the ferry crossing.

The ocean view lounge is outfitted with a leather queen sofa bed, 43" HD flat screen TV with DVD player and Shaw Satellite (movies & sports included!), iPod dock & speakers, library, mini refrigerator stocked with yogurt & fruit, microwave and coffee maker/kettle (with coffee & tea) so you can kick back and have a continental breakfast before your next adventure! We do not have a kitchen or cooking facilities but supply dishes and cutlery in the suite. There is a great organic grocery store that has healthy and yummy pre-made meals you can purchase if you decide not to check out our restaurants.

Between the bedroom and lounge is a full bathroom with tub, rain shower head and the cushiest towels and bathrobes! We also supply organic soaps made on island.

For those who like to be in touch… the suite has complimentary Wi-Fi and if required, we can print off any boarding passes or itineraries you require.

The deck… right off your suite is a sun-filled and very private with a sparkly (professionally maintained) 6 person hot tub – perfect for those cool winter evenings or a dip after a day at the beach!

Bring your best 4 legged friend as we are PET FRIENDLY with a lovely fenced yard, 1/2 block from a dog friendly beach and short walk to a fabulous cedar forest.

“Beyond my expectations”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2014

I was not surprised at the lovely setting and view, but I did not expect such a spacious and beautifully decorated accommodation. Though I stayed only one night, this is a great suite to stay for a few days in order to explore the island. The front living room is roomy with an attached deck area. The bedroom is at the back and has another balcony with a pretty view. All is clean and very comfortable. I really liked the heated mattress cover that I could adjust in order to keep the bed very cozy. It's dog friendly in case that is important. Carol couldn't be a better host. She is a very experienced safari guide and photographer so has the most interesting stories from Africa and other world travels.

Response from the owner Thank you Linda... was great to have you here even for a short stay! Look forward to seeing you again and hopefully you can bring your family with you next time! All the Best! Carol

“Wonderfully cozy suite!”

Reviewed 28 Apr 2014

Every time we tried to visit the Simply Safari Suite, it was always booked the weekends we wanted to go. Finally, a long weekend was available and we booked it. The suite was comfy, cozy, and uniquely charming - definitely worth the wait! It is very pet-friendly and Carol goes out of her way to make your furry friend feel welcome. Our dog loved exploring the fenced backyard. Carol is a gracious, kind and warm host who makes you feel welcome.

Response from the owner Was so great to have you visit... thank you for persevering! We do get busy with all the dog folks that like to visit. I really enjoyed meeting you two and getting to know Tups! What a cutie! Look forward to seeing you again sometime! Duffy says Woof! Sophie doesn't... LOL!

“Peaceful Getaway”

Reviewed 24 Apr 2014

A warm welcome by Carol and a very inviting home away from home for a couple of days on Bowen Island. Great location - close to the amenities in Snug Harbour and access to walking trails. The private deck with hot tub is a very nice touch!

Response from the owner Was great to meet you Cathy! Love your images and am working on getting a gallery up to put more in - great work! Glad you felt at home even if the hummingbirds were kicking up a fuss. I changed their nectar so things have settled down a bit - whew! What a battle! All the Best C

“So lovely!”

Reviewed 17 Mar 2014

We had such a nice time- Carol was very warm and welcoming both on the phone and in person. We particularly appreciated how she set up the place for our dog, who really appreciated the luxurious bed and gourmet treats she left for her. The location was so convenient- we brought a car but would not have needed one. We will definitely come back (maybe next time by foot or with our bikes!)

Response from the owner Thank you so much for your kind words! I would love to have you return... anytime! All the Best... Carol

“Wonderful place.”

Reviewed 30 Nov 2013

The Simply Safari suite was exactly as pictured/described. Clean, comfortable, well-appointed. Carol is an excellent hostess, unobtrusive but very accommodating and helpful. The hot tub on the deck is a delight, with wonderfully hot water. We had an extremely pleasant two days/nights here and would gladly return.

Response from the owner So glad you enjoyed your time here and thank you for the lovely review. I look forward to seeing you "non" birthday?

“Three days of relaxation”

Reviewed 21 Nov 2013

My wife and I spent three wonderful days on Bowen Island. Our Simply Safari guest suite was beautifully decorated, well equipped, and very comfortable. Our host, Carol, was very attentive to our needs, even going so far as to find me a doctor when I had a problem with an arthritic hand. We heartily recommend this accommodation. Once we discovered the route, we found it's just a short walking distance to the main town!

Response from the owner What a treat to have you two choose Simply Safari Guest Suite! I'm sorry your hand flared up but glad we were able to get you back on the mend. Was a pleasure to help out! Hope all is better now! Cheers Carol

“Great relaxing getaway with our dog”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2013

We stayed at the Safari Guest Suite for 2 nights. The location was perfect...right near the water and a very short walk to Snug Cove shops. The suite had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The best part was how well set up it is for dogs. The yard is fenced and a dog bed is even provided. Meeting Carol's dogs every day in the yard was fun too. Hot tub on the deck was perfect. We'll definitely be back.

Response from the owner Thanks so much Kristian! We look forward to seeing you again soon! Woof! Woof!

“One of my favorite places to visit!”

Reviewed 8 Nov 2013

I loved my stay with Carol at Simply Safari! The suite was exactly what I was hoping for, clean, quiet and relaxing. It was wonderful listening to the stream as I fell asleep and since the weather was starting to cool, the heated bed was heaven. Carol was so gracious and left some delicious breakfast snacks in the fridge for me. An easy 7 minute walk to Snug Cove. Thanks so much Carol, I'll be back!

Response from the owner Oh Lorrie - you were such a treat to meet! I look so forward to seeing you again ... maybe the kids and your pup too! Take Care! Cheers Carol

“A Wonderful time”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2013

Mother's day weekend could not have been more memorable at Carol's place. We appreciated her generosity to drive us around Bowen Island and point out places and stores to go to. The room was beautifully decorated as an invitation to relax; the smell of the flowers gave the homely touch as well as the birds and wind settling in the evening. The african décor of the suite makes you connect more with nature. And contributes to our dream to go to africa in the future. The suite was big, with a spacious living room, a sofa-bed perfect for 2, a refrigerator, coffee maker, kettle, plates and cutlery. As well as, we had some treats such as african Tea, muffins and yogurt. We enjoyed walking around and exploring Bowen Island. In the late afternoon, we were in the hot tub watching the sunset. We loved our stay and the opportunity to have Carol as a host. She has the unique quality to be with people and make your time unforgettable. We would like to go back again. Thanks, Bertha and Claudia

Response from the owner Bertha & Claudia... how wonderful it was to host you on this special weekend! I really enjoyed our chats and it was very special to see you spend your time together in the hot tub and taking in all the beauty of Bowen Island. I look so forward to seeing you both again soon! All the Best.. Carol
