“Blondie's Hideaway- Amazing self-catered holiday rental”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Of all the rental's we've stayed in over the world, this is the only one so far to have decent knives. Everything you could want is there. (coffee press, slow cooker, all pans, baking things etc.) Many basic groceries (coffee, tea, salt, herbs, sugar) there as well. Interesting books, great cd's. Home clean, efficient, but space a little tight for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Pull-out bed had a nice mattress, but would say the only negative is the quilt they have for it was very hot for summer. A few blankets as substitutes would be perfect. Photos are accurate, outside space is wonderful.

“Birthday Getaway”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My husband and I stayed at Chris' Cove Cottage for my birthday weekend. The cottage was adorable with so many added features - an IPod, dvd player & movies, stocked cupboards with essentials like coffee and tea. Bed was comfortable with warm blankets and there was even a couple beer in the fridge. What more could you ask for?? Lovely, lovely place for a romantic getaway.

“perfect little cabin”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed at the French Girl's cabin super last minute and it was great - totally set up for us and clean. A kitchen stocked with everything we needed and a perfect little porch with a fire pit. There's no gas station or ATM in Port Renfrew, and the Co-op doesn't offer much but there are tons of little towns on the way - just a heads up!

“Beautiful cabin in a awesome area”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We were planning a get-away to one of our other "regular" locations on the west coast, but decided to take a chance on Port Renfrew based on reading about Avatar Grove and the giant old trees cedar in the area.

Wow. Are we ever glad we decided to come here! The cabin was great. Very clean and modern. It's tucked into a tiny little "community" of other small cabins. Even better was the ability to explore the wonderful beaches and forest in the surrounding area.

We have already booked a return stay for next month (my birthday).

Highly recommended!

“Clean and comfortable”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed with two couples in Blondie's. The cabin is clean as a whistle and is pleasant, although a bit tight for 2 couples. Cabins are located in a development with many other similar cottages; it's very tastefully done and a nice spot, as long as you're not expecting lots of privacy since properties are close to one another. We enjoyed our stay and the price is reasonable for what you receive - Wi-Fi is included as well.
