      Reviewed by Emily P. on November 18, 2015 for their trip during November 2015

      We really enjoyed our stay at the Lazy B Petite Suite - even on a stormy and cold November weekend. The view was superb and the space had everything we needed to enjoy a romantic weekend out of the city. We especially liked how private the location was and the easy access down to the beach. Highly recommend this cozy cottage retreat to anyone and everyone.

      Owner Response: Emily, we think the Lazy B Waterfront Suite is perfect for a couple's romantic getaway as well. So glad that you enjoyed the privacy, and gorgeous waterfront views. The Suite is one of a few waterfront properties on Bowen and it is truly special to have beach access only a minute down the trail. For our guests that stay between May and September they will also be able to enjoy our community swimming dock. We hope you will return again, soon. Jan

    • Beautiful & Relaxing Holiday Spot

      Reviewed by L & J from Fraser Valley, BC on September 14, 2015 for their trip during August 2015

      We spent three nights at the Lazy B Petite Suite and just loved it. The suite was very comfortable, very clean, and stocked with all the kitchen/BBQ basics we needed. We loved the covered deck, and spent most of our time there - admiring the view, reading, and playing cards. The setting is private and relaxing, and the view is spectacular. We also enjoyed the quick walk down the hill to the public dock for a swim. The walk down to the suite from the main road where we parked (2 wheel drive vehicle) was steep and windy, but only took five minutes. Next time we stay, we'll bring a 4 wheel drive, so we can drive right to the door of the suite. We have highly recommended it to our family and friends, and look forward to coming back next summer. Thanks, Jan!

      Owner Response: We are so glad to hear that you LOVED the Lazy B Waterfront Suite. We AGREE, sitting on the NEW private covered deck is great in the summer and will be terrific this fall too. What could be better than relaxing breathing in the rain washed air, spying nature’s critters big and small, and listening to the crashing waves below while comfortably sitting protected and dry? We would love to have you return……bring your whole family and rent the complete house, the Lazy Bowen Hideaway plus the Lazy B Waterfront Suite. We can accommodate up to 8 guests and it is perfect for creating more peaceful and beautiful family memories.

      Reviewed by Amara H. on August 06, 2015 for their trip during July 2015

      My fiancé and I spent a few days at the Lazy B on our vacation this year. It was fantastic! A great break from the city. The place was comfortable, immaculate, and had spectacular views. We loved the selection of 90s DVDs, and a well appointed kitchen made for comfy evenings in. For those with 2wheel drive, don't despair! The cabin only is a short jaunt down the hill. Even fully loaded with groceries and bags it wasn't a problem for our able bodies. Don't miss the great 5k run around Killarny Lake, and Tuscany restaurant. Can't wait to come back in the winter and enjoy that wood stove! Thanks Jan!

    • A Fabulous Spot

      Reviewed by kk from Victoria, BC on June 02, 2015 for their trip during May 2015

      Our stay at the Lazy B Petite Suite was fabulous on all levels. A beautiful suite with all the extras one needs to feel comfortable away from home. The view was simply magnificent. A great place for chillaxing on Bowen Island!

      Owner Response: Renew, Relax, Restore.........that is what Bowen is all about ........including a well deserved "chillaxing!!" So glad you loved our waterfront views........it is really a gorgeous southerly view of the ferry lanes, Coastal Mountains and Vancouver. We have recently changed the name as Petite doesn't seem to fit any longer. With the new decks and expansive view windows guests can enjoy a total of 1000 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space. Nothing "petite" about that, right? Please come back again.

      The Lazy B Petite Suite was more then we expected. We opened the door and we're immediately taken by the breathtaking views. The accommodations were top notch, everything you have at home and more. We were looking for a little weekend getaway from the busy city and that is exactly what we got! Bowen Island is a great place to unwind and enjoy the beauty that is the Island. I would highly recommend staying with Jan and the Lazy Bowen Petite Suite. There's is no doubt we will be back to enjoy the beautiful deck and the breathtaking views.

      Owner Response: Thank you, Dawn. We are so proud of our very thorough clean team....they are the best on Bowen. I will pass along your compliments for their excellent work. So glad you loved our new washroom. It is a BEAUTIFUL renovation. Stay tuned for more improvements this fall. We are adding 12 feet of sliding glass doors to capture even more of the ocean and mountain views. PLUS the doors will open out to a new weather proof deck just for our Petite Suite guests.

      Reviewed by M & T from Des Moines, WA, USA on July 22, 2014 for their trip during July 2014

      We highly recommend this unit. My wife and I stayed in the upper unit. 4 friends stayed in the lower unit. It was very nice and comfortable, better than described, a bargain for such a good location and everything worked good. Perched on solid rock on the water. We brought our kayaks and also snorkeled and hiked. Great restaurants in town. Jan was nice and very helpfull answering our questions. We even found it exciting navigating the 4WD road.

      Owner Response: Mark, your group found all the great outdoor activities available on Bowen. So glad you all enjoyed the kayaking, snorkeling, and hiking………Bowen is a haven for fresh air activities while enjoying nature. Love to have you all back any time.

      My stay at the Lazy B Petite Suite was lovely. The ocean was my front yard, and the waves were my traffic! It was a quiet, perfectly stocked studio, and I wanted for nothing. The beach is a very short distance from the studio, and I went there every day. I would definitely go back!

      My boyfriend and I stayed at the suite over the weekend for his birthday. It was clean and modern with a beautiful view! We loved the decor and the fireplace made it feel extra warm and cozy. The bed was super comfortable which was a bonus. There is anything you could need found in the kitchen which was great as we were cooking all meals. Would surely return for another stay here. Rachel.

      Owner Response: Thank you, Rachel. The Lazy B Petite Suite kitchen is our pride and joy and we are so happy that it worked for you. The Kitchen is a functioning full size kitchen complete with many pots, pans, dinnerware, utensils and the pantry basics. Compared to other Bowen Island properties of the same size the Petite Suite stands out as we have a COMFORTABLE Q BED, 40 TV w/ Cable, COMFORTABLE SEATING for 4 guests in the living room and it is a WATERFRONT location with a SPECTACULAR VIEW. We believe nothing else compares on Bowen. We look forward to your return visit.

      We stayed for couple of days at the Lazy B Petite Suite back in July. Had wonderful time! The weather was great, the location perfect – 2 minutes away from the beach. The suite itself is very tasty decorated, the view is amazing… We spend lots of time on the beach, but also enjoyed quite evenings on the balcony sipping glass of wine and listening to the waives. We will definitely come back! Thank you, Jan, for sharing this lovely place with us!

    • Your creativity is a hit!

      Reviewed by Anne L. from Austin/Horseshoe Bay, TX, USA on August 10, 2012 for their trip during July 2012

      After an all day adventure in getting to Bowen Island from Texas we were totally gob-smacked as we entered the Petite Suite and witnessed the gorgeous setting from our back door. As other reviewers have stated pictures don't justify the setting; truly exquisite. We are so very lucky to have found such an oasis away from the TX heat and Jan made it all happen. She has created a fabulous apartment for all of us to share in a beautiful and quiet setting; the color scheme inside compliments the natural colors outside. We ventured over every square inch of the island during our 4 night stay yet we spent most of our time at the Petite Suite, preferring the comforts of home. Per Jan's suggestion we stopped at Trader Joe's on our way thru Bellingham, WA for our provisions due to Snug Cove being a little pricey; yet, it has a couple of grocery stores with good selections. The islands Memorial garden and Killarney Lake are outstanding; we must and will return! Thank you again Jan for creating the Petite Suite and sharing your special place.

      Owner Response: Anne, it was great to meet you in person, a rare treat for me to meet my guests. We are so happy that you appreciated the decor in our suite. As a professional interior designer I am very proud of the interior furnishings, color scheme, and space planning for our special little suite. It was designed for comfort and for our guests to settle into their " home away from home." We are thrilled that you loved your stay and we would LOVE to have you return.

    • Beautiful Ocean Views

      Hi Jan, We had a great Father's Day weekend (rain & shine)! Lazy B Petite Suite provided us with lovely suite that was well equipped & modern. The best part of course was the view & sounds of the ocean. We had coffee down at the Snug a few mornings followed by a few casual walks with the dogs through those beautiful forest trails. We also took our dogs & 16 month old daughter down to the ocean for some swim & play time, which everyone enjoyed! Thanks for sharing your home with us as it was a much needed family vacation. Thanks again, Colleen, Landon & Maya Kya & Chance (dogs)

    • Lazy indeed....

      Spent the weekend with my girlfriend in the petite Suite at the Lazy B. A very good time. We had meant to sign the guestbook but forgot. I had imagined a pithy line such as “We saw the name and we obeyed: A lazy weekend.” It was a very good one, quiet, in the suite, the balcony, and a few casual walks down to the rocky cove. On Sunday we did get some vigour percolating, with a kayak from Snug Harbour past the cove and over to the next one, Cates, and returned. It’s a good thing we rested up!

    • Very clean and comfortable

      I had a great time at the Lazy B Studio. It is small, but perfectly arranged and so comfortable. The view is beautiful... it really is a great place to be lazy. I usually don't sleep well in hotels or rentals, but I got three nights of great sleep on the comfortable bed. You've done a great job decorating and filling the studio to make it comfortable and very livable. The bed, TV and cable, movies, music, woodstove, wireless... all perfect additions. The road down to the suite is a little crazy, especially at night with a suitcase and groceries. I was the typical city idiot, rolling my suitcase down a steep gravel hill in the dark, lit only by my iphone flashlight app. :) But I made it just fine in the end. Thank you for a pleasant weekend!

      Owner Response: Hi Nicole, We are so glad that you had a beautiful stay at the Lazy B Petite Suite. Comfort was a priority when we selected the bed and other furnishings......it is great to know that you appreciated our choices too. Love the flash light app on your phone, how useful is that? What a great idea!! We have many guests that park at the top of our driveway and carry or roll their luggage down the gravel road. Your comment got me thinking about a solution.....what about if we make our hand truck available with some cables so the luggage can be easily rolled down the road? That might be a good option.

    • Island Charm

      The Lazy B is hands down the best place to stay on island if you're looking for a cozy, quiet, and relaxed atmosphere. It looks right out over the sea and the beach is just a few steps down the road. The place was immaculate and well maintained. We were provided with lots of information about Bowen Island before we came and on arrival. Bowen Island is great rain or shine at the Lazy B.

      Owner Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed our Lazy B Petite Suite. Not only does our waterfront location with a spectacular view make our property unique but including the full size kitchen and the professionally designed cozy & comfortable interior it is the best value on Bowen. We hope you will be able to return and be our guest again soon.

    • Cozy and right on the water

      Reviewed by Ciarabc from Vancouver on September 27, 2011 for their trip during September 2011

      Great getaway. A slight mistake we made was taking our bikes on the water taxi from Granville island. It was a great idea at the time but were quickly reminded the Bowen is very hilly and not bike friendly making at a good workout to get to the property and we are in pretty good shape. So if you're an occasional rider keep the bikes at home. It is justnas economical to take the carnon the ferry from Horseshoe bay. Also, dont be deterred by the driveway from the main road down to the property. You will have to walk if you don't have the right kind of vehicle but it is very doable.

      Owner Response: Thank you, Jo-Ann for sharing about the hills on Bowen Island. We are often asked about the biking and walking conditions on Bowen. Even though we are only 3k from the Snug Cove ferry landing (an 8 minute car ride), the bike route is especially hilly and terrific for very fit cyclists. If others decide to ride their bikes and find it too challenging the bus can always pick you and your bike up anywhere along the route……..just flag down the driver. The ride is only $2.50…..be sure to have the exact change. We often walk into the cove and then conveniently catch the Eagle Cliff bus back to our driveway, Cleator Road. It’s a good exercise opportunity with a compromise. A kind note about our C11 Eagle Cliff bus driver……One winter evening we had guests arrive via the water taxi and then the C11 Eagle Cliff bus. It was dark and the bus driver asked our guests if they had a flash light. They didn’t. So, the bus driver loaned perfect strangers his flash light so they could safely walk down Cleator Road to the Suite. At check out our guests caught the bus and returned the flash light to the driver...So VERY Bowen Island friendly. Speaking of our driveway, Cleator Road....because it is steep in spots and is made of loose gravel it does require an AWD or 4 Wheel drive vehicle to drive down the driveway and to park on the property. If you drive a 2WD vehicle don’t be discouraged. We have free parking along Eagle Cliff Road at the top of Cleator Road and you can walk down to the Petite Suite….it takes about 4 minutes. If you do decide to walk down the road be sure to wear shoes with tread on the bottom so you don’t slip on the gravel. OR, you can hire our Cleator Road Shuttle. Our shuttle driver will meet you upon your arrival at the top of the road and assist you with your luggage and groceries down to the house. Then, you can schedule your departure time and our driver will drive you back up the road at check out. We can guarantee that once you arrive it is truly a special place to stay. Like Joanne said, you will find the Lazy B Petite Suite “Cozy and Right on the Water.”
