Guest reviews of the cottage

….so delighted to hear from you


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

August 7, 2018   “Fish Tales exceeded our expectations. Very roomy, very well equipped and clean. The patio and view are wonderful, and the location is very close to Botanical beach and Avatar Grove. We'll definitely come back!”  Ted and Patti 

July 22, 2018   This place was great. True to the pictures- a lovely view and stocked with everything you might need.  Jennifer

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 

June 2018  This is a gorgeous spot to start or end a West Coast Trail hike or anything else in this part of the universe. Comfortable beds, beautiful view, walkable to the nearby pub. Melanie

Stayed: May 2018...Our Second Visit   This was such a wonderful place to call home for a few days! The cottage is equipped with everything you could possibly need or want, and there are so many beautiful beaches and hikes in the area. We will definitely be back!  Tahsis D.

  • 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.
