Apr.20-22, 2024   Great place to spend a long weekend. Everything was as advertised. Would highly recommend.   Stephen (Airbnb)

Apr.1-4, 2024   Thank you for the amazing few days with family at your lovely cottage. We had so much fun relaxing and recharging.  Delilah (Airbnb)

Mar.14-16, 2024   Place was really nice 😊 kitchen was well equipped with everything. A lot of extra towels, pillows, blankets… 100% recommend   Genesis (Airbnb)

Mar.16-17, 2024   One of the best Airbnb stays I’ve had to date. Denise’s place was everything and more than we could have asked for. It had so many amenities and the view was simply spectacular. Denise was also incredibly kind and helpful in her communication. We’d stay here again and again and are already trying to figure out when we can come back. Cannot recommend this accommodation enough.  Rachel (Airbnb)

Feb.2-5, 2024  Beautiful place! Had a lovely stay with my family. We made some nice home cooked meals in the fully stocked kitchen. We also enjoyed lunch at the pub near by. We enjoyed the hikes and beaches close by and even took a drive to see Big Lonely Doug - a 1000 yr old douglas fir. The views from the balcony were spectacular. Wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you for our stay Denise! Highly recommend! Ruby (Airbnb)

Dec.23-24, 2023 Great place to stay, wish we had stayed longer! Aaron (Airbnb) 

Nov. 10-13, 2023   Such a beautiful location! We spent a weekend together as an extended family and it was such a great weekend of connection. Port Renfrew is very remote so it’s more appropriate for someone who wants to really get away, and hike or surf rather than someone looking for spas, restaurants and a tourist location like Tofino. There was a general store if needed though.  Steve and Erin (Airbnb)

Oct. 18-19, 2023   Lovely spot. Fully stocked with anything you could need. Fun, cozy cabin décor and lots of sleeping options if you’re planning for a full house. Sophie (Airbnb)

Sept.11-13, 2023   This is a gem of a place at a very reasonable rate. Fantastic views. Coffee and sugar supplied much appreciated. Denise gave us detailed instructions and everything was as advertised! Thank you.  Bruce (Airbnb)

Sept. 1-4, 2023  Our family of 5 including two kids enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed eating dinner on the deck with a lovely water view. The kids enjoyed the Wii when we were resting in between hikes. Would stay again. Ann (Airbnb)

Aug. 1-2, 2023  The cleanest air bnb I have ever stayed in. The view was great. Clear information. Shannon (Airbnb)

July 29-31, 2023  When we walked into Fish Tales our entire family said “WOW!”. The view would be worth it alone. On top of the amazing location and views we had everything we needed in this adorable home. Very clean and comfortable including the beds with quality linens. Fun games to play and the downstairs room was perfect for our teens when they needed space. Everything we needed to cook a delicious dinner with local salmon. Highly recommend this wonderful home!  Aerin (Airbnb)

July 17-19, 2023   Magnificent house, beautiful surroundings. Josje (Airbnb)

June 30-July 1, 2023   Denise’s place was fantastic! It was bright, spacious and had a wonderful view of the ocean. Denise is very friendly and responsive too. Would recommend! Lisa (Airbnb)

May 27-29, 2023   Booked this place for a fishing trip for the men in my life. It was the perfect fit for them! They had a wonderful time and were super impressed with the whole place. They loved the fishing theme and they were comfortable the whole time. They said “we have to remember this place - it’s perfect!”   Jane (Airbnb)

May 5-8, 2023   We enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage was clean and well equipped. The beds were comfy, the linens were very nice. We loved sitting out on the deck and enjoying the view. Absolutely nothing to complain about. We plan to return again next year. Thank you Denise   Mike (VRBO)

Apr. 22, 2023   Denise’s place is beautiful! Very comfy. We felt right at home! It was a great location for a girls getaway. The beds were comfortable and the home was nice and clean. The view is amazing from the upper deck.   Kimberly (Airbnb)

Dec. 31, 2022- Jan. 5, 2023   We loved our stay at Fish Tales. The house was inviting and comfortable. Décor is beautiful and the kitchen, laundry, bathrooms and bedrooms are all very well stocked. The view is spectacular . Several beautiful beaches and forests are a 10 to 30 minute drive, and trails in the area are well marked. The Renfrew Pub is nearby and a nice hangout. I would return with family, or a small group of friends. Farrah (Airbnb) 

Dec. 22-27, 2022   We stayed before Christmas time and Boxing Day, and made it through a couple of Port Renfrew power outages. The cottage had plenty of flashlights, candles, umbrellas for use, and most importantly, a snow shovel! We spent time at the local pub where we were entertained. (The friendly locals seemed to know exactly when the power would come back on which was very helpful.) Every person we met were welcoming and provided great advice. Denise was extremely helpful during this time and throughout our stay. Our vacation was incredible, the views: spectacular. The cabin is modern and furnishings new; the beds/bedding comfy. Exploring the roads and other towns were an adventure. Finding unexplored areas and taking the pictures encapsulated the beauty of our stay. This place provided the perfect setting to end the year. I highly recommend it!  Lynn (Airbnb)

Nov. 18-20, 2022  We had a great stay at Denise’s place. Very well stocked and comfortable. Fantastic communication as well. Amazing location. Will definitely be back!   Danielle (Airbnb)

Oct. 21-23, 2022  Felt super posh with our stunning views of the ocean! So much room that 8 of us stayed comfortably!   Alayne (Airbnb)

July 24-27, 2022   Just a wonderful stay in port renfrew with a water view, great location and impeccably furnished. lovely/cozy indoors and amazing outdoor deck for dining and napping in the sun :) crisp and clean bath and bed linens, comfy beds in a great spacious layout to accommodate 4 of us, and an incredibly well stocked kitchen all made it a real joy to stay here. super friendly and responsive host with lots of info to ease us into our stay. highly recommend and would stay here again!! Ariel (Airbnb)

July 6-8, 2022   A great location with beautiful views. Close to the beach which is a fabulous way to spend a day. Kitchen is fully stocked and you will be able to find whatever you need. Well kept rooms and two bathrooms make this place perfect for a bigger group.  Nicole (Airbnb)

June 24-26, 2022   Great space with everything you need. Clean and organized. Host communicates effectively. Lovely view but not much privacy in the area. “Cabins” have been built in a suburb style neighborhood.  Carissa (Airbnb)

May 31-June 2, 2022  Fish Tales cottage was the highlight of our trip to Canada. The property is even more stunning than the photos suggest; the views are amazing. The cottage itself is cosy, well-equipped and charmingly decorated. Denise is friendly and was always quick to respond. Thanks!  Garry (Airbnb) 

May 19, 2022   This is a great place to stay with a group, lots of space for sleeping and hanging out. The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking at home and enjoying the view. We used the BBQ and it worked well. A great spot to explore the natural area from. Denise was great about responding to my questions and sent very detailed instructions before we arrived which really helped. Tracie (Airbnb)

April 1-3, 2022   Wonderful spacious place to stay, love that most bedrooms are downstairs. The view is great, beds are very comfortable! We enjoyed cooking meals in the kitchen and were able to have dinners for 7 people at the table quite easily. Lucinda (Airbnb)

March 13-16, 2022   We had a beautiful stay at Fish Tale Cottage. It’s no wonder she’s rated as a super host, she has provided all the extra touches you need to have a great vacation. The home was meticulous clean, wonderful views and was well stocked with toys, puzzles, books, colouring to entertain everyone in the rain, and lots of umbrellas if you decided to venture out into the rain. Would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a beautiful peaceful retreat. Alisha (Airbnb)

February 18-21, 2022   We had an amazing stay! The cabin is even nicer than pictured and there's a lot to do in the area. Oh, and the beds are so cozy... both ourselves and the other couple that stayed with us commented on them. there's one queen bedroom on the upper level, attached bathroom, kitchen, and patio. There's another king bedroom on the lower level, along with a another adorable living area, and a 2nd bedroom with bunk beds. there's access to the 2nd exterior area through full height sliding doors in both the bedroom and living area. supplies to have a lovely fire outside is also provided. We loved it:) Hollie (Airbnb)

January 10, 2022   Beautiful house, has everything you need to feel at home! Thank you! Mikaela (Airbnb)

Dec. 19-31, 2021  Me and my family had a great time for our December stay at Fishtales cottage! The property had all the utensils needed for us to do home cooking (coffee, popcorn, toaster and even a pancake pan!) especially for Christmas dinner. It was so quiet with beautiful views of the bay each morning and is situated close to botanical bay, Avatar grove (big cedars and fir trees) and a number of nature trails and beaches. The property is very dog friendly (dog bowls were even left in a draw to use)our dog had a great time going on long walks each day and enjoyed the space of the upstairs. The owner was always there to answer any questions or concerns I had via email, she even left us a box of chocolates for our arrival. I would highly recommend to nature lovers, people looking for some family time, dog owners and anyone looking for a relaxing break from work. Calum (VRBO)

Nov. 23, 2021   Large Cottage with a beautiful view and very comfortable beds! We enjoyed the DVD's and the outside fire. Highly recommend :)  Carmen (Airbnb)

Aug. 26-30, 2021  Great stay. Ideal for families. Place is clean and well kept. Happy we made this choice. Charles (Airbnb)

Aug. 19-21, 2021   My family had come to Port Renfrew for our 3rd annual family fishing trip. It was our first time in the 'Handsome Dan's complex' and Denise's Fish Tales cabin was the perfect choice for 7 people! The cabin is located one row up from the waterfront cabins, which allows for a wider, unobstructed view of the ocean, mountains and beach from the very large front deck. We spent many hours on that deck! There is parking for two vehicles (won't fit longer trucks), but there is a strip of parking right across the road for those longer vehicles. The cabin's furniture and beds were very comfortable, there was enough linens for all, the kitchen contained variety of dishes and utensils for cooking, and there were basic items like coffee, sugar, tea, oil, and a variety of spices. There is one bedroom upstairs, and 3 sleeping areas downstairs. A note to light sleepers: the floors are wood, so if you are sleeping downstairs while others are moving around upstairs, you will hear footsteps. Not a huge deal to most people. The children were occupied by exploring the complex, playing some of the many games provided and watching movies. We did not use the laundry room, but it would have been useful if we were there for more than two nights, or if the weather was not favourable. There is also a coffee shop and small restaurant within a 5 min walk (it's driveway is right next to Baird Rd.). All in all, it was a great stay and we would definitely return.  Marie (Airbnb)

April 25-28, 2021  There was an audible "Wow" from everyone who walked into this place for the first time. Would very highly recommend it, you will not be disappointed. Cameron (Airbnb)

April 7-11, 2021  Beautiful view and very clean place. Make sure to bring the cooking basics (oil, salt & pepper) if you’re planning to cook. Everything else was great! Sabrina (Airbnb)

April 4-5, 2021  Had a great stay, it was more than I expected. I definitely recommend for friends and family. Nhu (Airbnb)

April 2-4, 2021  Absolutely beautiful house with a spectacular view in a magical spot. This house had everything we could ever need, and the host is lovely. Highly recommend. We will definitely go again. Kelli (Airbnb)

March 28-31, 2021  We stayed for three nights as a family of four with our two dogs and very much enjoyed it. Clean, comfortable, gorgeous view, pet friendly. Had everything we needed! We would love to be back! Galina (Airbnb)

Feb. 12-17, 2021  This is a great place, especially for families. We found plenty to do on rainy days: puzzles, board games, watch movies. The cottage has everything you may possibly need or want. Most of all we appreciated Denise’s flexibility, understanding and prompt communication. Thank you! Cristina (Airbnb)

Jan. 9-10, 2021  A few girls and I spent the night in this beautiful cabin in Renfrew for a chance to getaway. It was a beautiful place, comfortable and had stunning views! We highly recommend if you are looking for a nice little getaway! Taylor (Airbnb)

Dec. 4-6, 2020  Beautiful space in a beautiful location ☺️ our group loved it here. Erin (Airbnb)

Oct. 30-Nov. 1, 2020  The view at this cottage was stunning, like you’re in the trees. Beds were super comfy and we loved having the two dens. About a 10-15 minute walk to a gorgeous beach. Highly recommend. Shannon (Airbnb)

Oct. 10-12, 2020  I'm in love with this cottage, we had an amazing stay. Checking in was easy and it’s in a great location with a good view. Kitchen is well stocked with lots of cookwares and utensils. Rooms and bathrooms are very neat and tidy. We would love to come back again!! Fishtales told here! ;) Mj (Airbnb)

Sept. 3-7, 2020  Amazing location Great House. The view from the deck is spectacular. I spent a large part of our stay on the deck enjoying it. The home is modern and very comfortable. It was perfect for a family with the separate TV and gaming area downstairs. Kitchen had everything that you could possible need. Beds were very comfortable. Karen (Vrbo)

Aug. 14-15, 2020  Amazing stay, amazing views and amazing place!  Andrea (Airbnb)

July 28-31, 2020  Fantastic cabin for your group stay in Port Renfrew! Comfortable, lots of thoughtful touches, and a great view of the ocean and mountains from the deck - even complete with eagles flying by! 10/10, highly recommend - thanks Denise! (Airbnb)

July 26-28, 2020  This is the second time we have stayed at the Fish Tails Cottage and we had a wonderful stay once again. It is a cute place and in a great safe location. Eifer and Jolene (Airbnb)

July 11, 2020  Denise’s place is absolutely amazing. What a lovely spot - incredible view (including resident eagles in the trees out front), great fire pit, well stocked kitchen, super clean and comfortable. Denise was also very responsive and quick to answer any questions we had. We will definitely be coming back! Ashley (Airbnb)

June 17, 2020 I think for the entirety of our stay my family was constantly commenting how much we wanted to live in a cottage so lovely. We spent most of our time relaxing and enjoying a meal or fire in front of the view. This place had everything we could possibly need, whether it was kitchen utensils, or other thoughtful touches like firestarter and umbrellas. If we could come back again we would! Britney (Airbnb)

June 6, 2020  Beautiful place to stay in Port Renfrew! Denise was lovely and helped us quickly work through a few glitches. Would definitely stay again! The sunset from the patio was amazing! Jessica (Airbnb)

March 14, 2020 This has been one of our best family vacations! The home is so beautiful and location is perfect for going to the many beaches. We went to Avatar grove, Botanical beach (several times), Botany Bay, Lizzard lake, Fairy Lake and Sombrio beach. The deck on the cabin is perfect for late afternoon sun and just watching the ocean. So many beautiful little touches in this cottage. A fully equipped kitchen too. Kingsize mattress was crazy comfortable! Our boys had fun in the downstairs tv room playing on the Wii. Thank you Denise for being such an amazing host! Looking forward to coming back. Chantel (VRBO)

March 6, 2020  “Beautiful cabin in one of the best parts of BC. Great amenities and view. Beds were very comfortable.”  Colin (Airbnb)

February, 2020  This was perfect for our group of 4 adults and 3 kids with room to spare. Exceptionally well stocked kitchen, views were exactly as shown, beds were soq comfy, kids toys and colouring were a great addition! Power was out one morning and the candles came in handy. It felt very homey and we loved our first taste of Port Renfrew, we will definitely be back!  Tanitha (Airbnb)

Jan. 24-26, 2020  Great stay. Two floors, lots of space and bed space. We made thorough use of the kitchen and found everything great. Great view from the balcony. Walking distance to the pub and store. The power went out one night, but we found flashlights and candles which only added to the experience!  Erik (Airbnb)

Jan. 22-24, 2020  “Great short stay. Very comfortable, all the amenities, and a great location for our two-day work trip. View is hard to beat, too! Denise's communication was great and she was very responsive to any questions we had. Recommended!”  Dave (posted on Airbnb)

Nov. 2019  Amazing place. A nice view of the ocean and exactly what we needed. Perfect location for getting around everywhere too! Would definitely stay again. Kiyomi

Oct. 2019  Denise's place was a perfect home base for our weekend getaway in Port Renfrew! Great views, nicely appointed and a lovely/responsive host! Jessica

Sept. 2019  Such a wonderful cabin!! Has everything you need and more! We were able to cook full meals! We had 6 adults and 2 kids and were all extremely comfortable. There was even a firepit outside so we were able to enjoy a fire nightly after fishing! We will be back!!  Barry

Aug. 2019  We really enjoyed our stay at Denise's place. Good location and nice views. Accommodated our family very well. Zach  

July, 2019   This house has a great view. Its easy to find. Its clean. The kitchen has all the things you need to cook. Communication about how to get in was clear and timely. There are tons of outdoor things to do in the area. Hiking, fishing, whale watching. The internet worked great. I'd highly recommend this house to anyone coming to the area!   Peter

June, 2019   Beautiful accommodations; the house is clean, well appointed, roomy, with everything we needed to accommodate a large group and a big family-style meal. There is no cell signal (which we welcomed) but there is wi-fi if needed. The area is gorgeous; close to the water and a small pub/restaurant. Within walking distance to the south end of the West Coast Trail (Gordon River access) and numerous fishing charters.  Brian

June, 2019   Beautiful space, comfortable stay! Definitely will return for an extended stay. Expect to spend some time in and around the whole space. Recommend buying groceries and cooking/barbecuing with the excellent amenities provided!  Bony

May, 2019   Great space, comfortable and homey. Has everything you need. Beautiful view. I’d rent there again! Leanne

April, 2019   Lovely quiet place to relax and recharge the batteries. Waking up to the stunning view is a real treat and an awesome way to start the day. Denise's home is very nicely decorated, dining table a little small, but in summer I would imagine eating outside on the large deck would be ideal. Well stocked kitchen for cooking needs and a nice large BBQ on deck. Really enjoyed our stay all be it too brief. Adele

March, 2019   Wish we had a longer stay there! The property was thoughtfully laid out, the kitchen well equipped with basic necessities stocked. The information about what we needed to do was clear. The owner recommended 2 excursions, both of which we did, and were fabulous! The cottage (house!) was well-equipped for children, with plenty to entertain them from books and games to tv and wii. Not that we had the time to avail ourselves of any of it, because the weather was spectacular, and we spent our time exploring the groves and beaches instead. One photo was the view from our bed! Gorgeous. The tap water has a taste that none of us liked, and we'd not brought bottled water. Andrew and family...Belgium

February, 2019   Lovely home with a great view. Spacious and clean. Caitlin

January,  2019   It was very well set up it was a home away from home. Brad

December 14-16, 2018   This cottage was well appointed - there was no hunting and pecking to find what you need; it was very clean and lots of nice touches to enhance the experience. Very welcoming - many thanks. Lynn

November 18, 2108   We rented this cabin for a family getaway. There were 7 adults and a baby, and the cabin was quite spacious for us. It was perfect for visiting, cooking, and playing games. Will definitely be coming back to stay again. Karlee

October 22-24, 2018   “This cabin was immaculately clean and stylishly furnished. It was only outdone by the view. We can't wait to come for another visit.”   Jordan 

October 4-6, 2018   “The house was wonderful! Clean and comfortable, the whole family enjoyed it!”  Tracy

September 23-26, 2018   We spent 3 nights at Fish Tales Cottage this past week. Absolutely beautiful! Exceeded our expectations in every way! Stunning views, all amenities that you could ask for. Not one complaint except that we did not have more time to spend here. We loved everything about this beautiful home.

August 16-22, 2018   Very well appointed suite, we missed nothing. Perfect setting for a relaxing family vacation away from the city.  Veronica

July 5, 2018   “***Perfect*** This is a great place to stay for a night, week or longer. Everything is at your fingertips and it is well stocked for comfort and ease. Spotless. Full kitchen equipment. You need not bring anything but yourself. Great experience and very refreshing from other stays we have encountered.  David

January 22, 2018   Restful, beautiful, magical, west coast. Moira (

  • We loved our whole experience
  • That we had to leave 

Dec. 23, 2017   Nice place for family vacation. Excellent view. We were told we could check in early than 4:00pm because no guests before us…very nice and considerate. Strongly recommended. Grace 

Nov. 26, 2017   Very nice place to stay at. Location was close to everything from the beaches to old growth forests. We were a family of 5 and had tons of space and the cottage is fully equipped. Casey

Oct. 29, 2017   We just wanted to let you know that your place is absolutely gorgeous and everything you have there is so useful and well thought out. So much attention to detail. And the pictures online don't do it justice! We had a fabulous stay. Thanks so much for having us and we hope to start an annual Port Renfrew tradition!  Amy

Sept. 12, 2017   We loved staying at Fish Tales ... so close to the Botanical Beach and the Renfrew Pub. The collection of cottages was really nicely laid-out with a beautiful deck down by the water. Everything we needed was in the cottage, including some nice binoculars for bird-watching, and the documentation was clear and thorough. Looking forward to returning to this beautiful place!  Stacey

July 31, 2017   Great Place. Scott C.

April 23, 2017   This was an adorable little cabin with everything we needed (pots, pans, hot water pot, etc). The bed was very comfortable and it was great to have a laundry machine in the unit. We didn't get to enjoy the outdoor fireplace or hammock due to weather but they were inviting. Everything was clean and enjoyable. Thanks!    Alice

May 28, 2017    Fish Tales is a very comfortable and clean cottage. It is very nicely decorated and has all the amenities you will need. The view from the deck is beautiful. The beds are very comfortable and our kids enjoyed the bunk beds. We enjoyed the BBQ and the fire pit in the evening. There is lots of hiking to be done and the scenery is just breath taking. Will definitely come back again.  Highly recommend! Kari S. 

March 28, 2017   My family had a great stay at Fish Tales. Amazing views, cosy space and well appointed amenities. My daughters loved the bunk beds, games and movies available. Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The pub close by serves great food as well. Would definitely recommend this place while exploring the Wild West Coast.   Steve.

Feb. 27, 2016    We had a great time and what you guys have built is beautiful. The view was amazing to wake up too on Saturday morning. We felt surprisingly accommodated with the fully stocked kitchen and extras such as the wii, flashlights, umbrellas, there was even extra batteries in the drawer. It was the little things in your home that made our vacation feel like our home.  Much love, hope to return soon. Brian and Friends

Oct. 16, 2016    We went to go storm watching, so having no power was a welcome issue! Denise was clear about candles and flashlight locations and her BBQ was super handy! Thanks Denise for housing our family games night!!    Dorian.

December, 2016   Our stay at Fish Tales was wonderful!! The cottage was exactly as described. Comfy living space, well equipped kitchen, a beautiful deck and fantastic views! It was a great place to snuggle up over christmas with my family and we enjoyed exploring the area. Denise was very responsive to any questions and a very welcoming host. The drive to and from Port Renfrew is beautiful and we enjoyed exploring the Botanical Beach, Juan de Fuca Park and the Tall Trees of BC. We highly recommend the Fish Tales cottage to anyone hoping to explore the coast of Vancouver Island.   Stephanie.
