“Wonderful weekend away!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I stayed at the Simply Safari Suite with my boyfriend, brother and his girlfriend for a 2-night weekend getaway from Vancouver. The booking process was quick and easy, and Carol even picked us up from the ferry so we didn't have to make the 10 min walk with our luggage. The cabin was exactly as it looked in the pictures, with a spacious bedroom and very clean bathroom. It was a little cosy with 4 people but worked for us, we made use of the sofa bed in the living room which was comfortable. The yogurt and muffins were a really nice touch for breakfast every morning, and we used the coffee maker (though the coffee was slightly old and not to everyone's taste).

We had a dog with us so the outdoor space was really great. He got along very well with Sophie and Duffy! We also loved the deck and made very good use of the hot tub which was a great treat (even though we couldn't work out how to get the jets working at full-power on both sides, we just took turns!).

The location of the cabin was good, and we walked to the main street in about 10 minutes, which was a nice walk. We walked everywhere on the island and didn't have any problems. The dog beach just a block away was great for taking the dog in the mornings, and we also hiked Dorman Point and ran to the lake and back. On our final day, Carol offered to store our luggage in her shop while we went for a hike, which was so helpful.

Overall, a very good value, pet friendly stay. I would return!

3 friends & myself escaped from the city for some R & R! We found exactly what we wanted at Simply Safari Suite. Carol is a superb hostess, providing everything we needed to unwind & re-charge. We certainly didn't need to bring the car over since it is only a short 10 mins stroll across the "lagoon" between the ferry & the house. While the suite is one-bedroom, we were able to sleep the 4 of us (2 on the pull-out couch-bed). Bowen Island is beautiful. The view of the bay from the hot tub is worth the trip alone :)
All of us plan to return and repeat our wonderful experience!

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!
