We were so very happy with this rental. I was concerned about noise as most rentals in the area are on the highway. The complex is on the highway but this particular rental is away from the highway. I could hear nothing in the house. Such peace.
I felt completely at home as soon as we entered the house. Linda has taken great care to make sure you have no wants whatsoever! I needed a flashlight and didn't find one and jokingly said to my husband - oh, she forgot something. I opened the next cupboard and there it was :)
I can't recommend this rental highly enough. I am very fussy when it comes to accommodations and this rental did not disappoint.

I spent a week at the beach house in July 2012. Omg! It was the best vacation week ever! I never had a vacation, where I did absolutely nothing. Spent the week getting up in the morning and sitting on the patio having my first coffee of the day with the morning sun on me, in the quiet peaceful setting, with nothing but but the birds singing and the sound of the ocean lapping on the shore in the distance. I litterally couldn't stop sighing in bliss... The outside swimmig pool and hot tubs were 15 steps from the patio. I love sitting in the sun on lounge chair after a swim and that's what we did all week. Read a lot. We did go to a few restaurants in the area and all of them were great. When do you ever get time off and do nothing and not feel the need to do anything and not feel guilty about it? If you are looking for an amazing restful, relaxing time away, this is the place to be. If you do feel adventurous, there is also plenty to do in the area. It was truly heaven on earth... I am going to book another week in the summer. As a side note we also spent a few days in November and it was just as great.

The home was simply beautiful, bright and cozy. All the rooms are beautifully decorated. You have all of the ammenties you would have at home and more. It was a great getaway from the big city. You couldn't do anything else but relax. The beach is gorgeous and town nearby has lots of great shops.

My husband and I throughly enjoyed our stay in this beautifully decorated and equipped summer home. Great for taking a little R & R. It was fully equipped with all we needed. Fabulous bathrooms and very comfortable bed. The nicely furnished patio with BBQ was great to use and spent much time out there. The pool area was only a two-second trip from the house and the beach a very short walk away. Qualicum city centre about a 15 minute drive away but is pretty with shops,restaurants, and little festivals and markets. We would definately consider staying here again.

From the moment you leave the ferry terminal and start the short, but scenic, drive to the Sweet Escape, you are charmed by the quaintness of island living. You immediately seem to sigh in relief as all of the stresses and worries of your life start to melt away. Those tight, and knotted muscles in your neck and back start to loosen up.
When you open the doors to the Sweet Escape for the first time, you are absolutely blown away by how spacious it is inside. It is obvious that there was a lot of time, care, and love put into this place. From the rustic oars on the wall in the foyer, to the funky multi-coloured fish statues and the amazing painting hung behind the dining table.
If you're anything like me though, you'll be living on the patio, basking and napping in the sun on the comfy lounger, or playing board games with friends. And when you get a little too hot, you're only twenty steps away from the very well kept pool and hottub! You are also only a short walk through the complex to get to the beach for a bonfire at night.
There are lots of very cool cities a short distance from aqay from Qulaicum to explore, and to partake in outdoor activites like kayaking, or cave exploring.
I can't think of one bad thing to say about the Sweet Escape, and I am excitedly counting the days until I get a chance to go back!
