The NeighborhoodOur B&B is set in a quiet cul-de-sac about 2 km from a pebble beach and several marinas and a 10 minute drive to the town of Duncan. Explore the Cowichan Valley's many culinary offerings: award-winning wineries, a cidery and brandy distillery, fine restaurants featuring delights made from local fare and the many farm and garden markets to enjoy whole food from the earth. A true delight for "locavores". If it is the outdoors you prefer, explore the nearby bays, coves and marinas, do some hiking and cycling on the Trans-Canada trail with its newly restored Kinsol trestle, or enjoy kayaking, fishing, or golfing. Get up close and personal with the birds of prey at the Raptor Centre or go on a whale-watching adventure. Getting AroundThe bus stop for the #4 bus just outside the B&B with service to downtown Duncan. The nearest city of Duncan (famous for its totems) is 10 minutes by car. Most attractions (wineries , cidery, teafarm, farmer's market, restaurants, whale-watching, kayaking) are within 5-30 minutes by car. Victoria airport (YYJ) and Swartz Bay (Victoria) ferry terminal (from Vancouver) is 1 hour by car Nanaimo airport (YCD) is 1/2 hour by car and Departure Bay or Duke Point ferry terminals (Nanaimo) are 45 minutes by car.

The SpaceThis is the perfect getaway for singles, a couple, or a group of friends. It's a super cute and funky 600 square foot float home located right in the heart of Cowichan Bay! It has everything you need for a fun adventure including use of a canoe and kayak. Steps to the quaint Cowichan Bay Village means enjoying a latte at an outdoor coffee shop, browsing the unique artist nooks and boutiques, and heading out for an adventurous whale watching tour in the warmth of the afternoon. An evening at the local pub or infamous Rock Cod Restaurant means you will be ready to take a evening stroll along the boardwalk and marinas enjoying all that nature and the splendid ocean has to offer. You can even enjoy the Nature Centre, the Wooden Boat Museum and enjoy late night entertainment at the local hangouts. This is really an incredible opportunity to leave the hectic life behind, sit on the outside garden dock, sip cocktails and listen to the otters and sea lions play. As far as accommodations go ... there is a queen bed in the main bedroom, a double up in the loft/bedroom as well as a pull out chair that makes into another single. There is also a double futon in the living room that pulls into a bed. We have just recently renovated including all new paint in the living room and kitchen, bathroom and bedroom (which looks great if I say so myself!) and new carpet in the living room and loft. So everything looks fresh, bright, and clean! Come give it a try ... you will want to come back again and again! Interaction with GuestsI am available by text or phone any time. Please leave a message if I happen to miss your call. Usually I work a lot and am away most weekends and I like to give people their privacy ..but when I am around I'd love to meet up - just let me know! The NeighborhoodWhat a fabulous neighbourhood! There is so much life and attractions and generally a fabulous feeling that comes with a fabulous community of people. There is a lot to do right in the area from walking the beach to enjoying a beverage at the local watering hole. The best part is that the nights are so quiet you'd hardly know you are right in the heart of a small town. As a side note, some of the shops are closed on Mondays - so there maybe less to do on those days. Getting AroundThere is a bus that goes right into Duncan and the surrounding area that stops right outside the marina grocery store.

However, we also have a deep respect for our guests privacy, so if it's quiet solitude you prefer...you can find it at the Funky Frog B&B. The NeighborhoodOur B&B is set in a quiet cul-de-sac about 2 km from a pebble beach and several marinas and a 10 minute drive to the town of Duncan. Explore the Cowichan Valley's many culinary offerings: award-winning wineries, a cidery and brandy distillery, fine restaurants featuring delights made from local fare and the many farm and garden markets to enjoy whole food from the earth. A true delight for "locavores". If it is the outdoors you prefer, explore the nearby bays, coves and marinas, do some hiking and cycling on the Trans-Canada trail with its newly restored Kinsol trestle, or enjoy kayaking, fishing, or golfing. Get up close and personal with the birds of prey at the Raptor Centre or go on a whale-watching adventure.

The SpaceThis unique strawbale house is set in a sunny, very private location in the beautiful forest of Glenora, 10 minutes west of Duncan. This is an opportunity to have the full 'eco-house' experience with unique features including off grid solar power system, earthen floor (warm and clean), strawbale walls and very low EMF radiation. The strawhouse has all the comforts of a regular house (full bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, loft, large open plan living area, beautiful mountain view). It's a house you need to spend time in and appreciate the details of living off-grid. It really can be done. It feels like a healing sanctuary from the moment you walk in and you will not want to leave. The healing energy of the earthen materials soaks up the positive charges our bodies are subjected to whilst living and working in our modern buildings. This is the ideal place for those wishing to heal from serious illness, re-plenish their life force, write or take time out to meditate and contemplate their next direction. Extremely relaxing and quiet with walking trails on this 35 acre property including Glenora Creek, sweat lodge, beaver dam, maple tree grove. Only five minutes driving to the Trans Canada hiking trail and Cowichan River's most beautiful swimming hole and place to begin inner-tubing. Wineries, horse riding, unique dining cuisine all available within 5 - 10 minutes and shopping in Old-Duncan only 10 minutes away. The entire house is yours. There is a work shed and yurt shaped building set apart from the house which is usually empty but may be accessed by prior arrangement. We will demonstrate the off-grid power system. It is just like the grid except you watch the battery power level for power consumption. We are in an extremely private location just 10min driving to town. There is easy access to 5Km of trails in the beautiful old riparian forest by Glenora Creek with beaver dam, sweat lodge and maple grove. Swimming and inner tubing in Cowichan River 4km away. Horse riding, wineries all nearby. You will need a car to get to town and access this location. The drive is 1Km long and slightly bumpy in places but not a problem for normal cars (not low riders!) Best to plan not to do laundry or do activities requiring heavy power use in view of off-grid battery/solar system. WiFi works well - we switch it off when not in use (to reduce EMF if desired). There is a cel phone booster antenna which you can access indoors (there is no extraneous EMF inside the building) Guest AccessThe entire house is yours. There is a work shed and yurt shaped building set apart from the house which is usually empty but may be accessed by prior arrangement Interaction with GuestsWe will acquaint you with the off-grid power and water systems etc. It is important to know how to keep the battery power supply within normal limits. I can always be contacted by texting. The NeighborhoodExtremely private location just 10min driving to town.

The NeighborhoodGuests have access to the Village of Cowichan Bay which is a 8 minute walk to all the interesting boutiques, restaurants, fish shop and True Grain Bakery , pub with music and festivals all summer. Kayaks to rent and supervised full moon paddles .Whale watching and hanging out on the walkways along the front. This area is lots of fun and has a village feel. The Wooden Boat Society is an interesting museum of model boats and local history of the Cowichan Nation . There are many Cowichan Carvers and knitters and we will be happy to direct you to their work places and studios. We also have many artists studios and small farms and wineries to visit and purchase local food and art. Our street is very friendly and no one ever moves from here! At the end of the road we have a world Heritage Heron Rookery and also many other birds such as Trumpeter swans and Hawks , Eagles and Osprey. There are swimming places on the Koksilah and Cowichan rivers and they are not far. Enjoy the "Cowichan' which means; warm lands, in the local Cowichan language. Getting AroundThere is a bus at the end of our road; 5 minute walk and it will take you to Duncan which is about 20 minutes and costs $2.75. After taking in the sites there you can catch a bus from Duncan to Victoria or Nanaimo and in between. Otherwise, walking around this area is easy but to cycle up the hill is a bit harder if you are not an avid rider.
