      Reviewed by Amadea K. on August 01, 2017 for their trip during July 2017

      Jan's place is exactly as pictured. It is very clean, comfortable, has everything you would need, and the view is amazing! It was quite a hike to get back to the main road or to the house, but it's worth it.

      Owner Response: Amadea, that 8 minute hike up to the main road is part of the unique character for the Lazy B Waterfront Suite, isn't it? A great exercise opportunity. In the old days (1955 - 1970) it was a deer trail and we did not have the option to park on the property with an All or 4 wheel drive vehicle. Today guests can drive down the access road and park on property with the proper vehicle. Once in the Suite the view and all the comforts of a great vacation are there.

      The Bowen Hideaway is excellent. Great breathtaking view, beach steps away, all the imenities for a relaxing stay. Pack light for the hike down the hill to the suite or bring a 4wheel drive vehicle. Good visit had by all three of us on our women's getaway. Would come back for sure. Ly

      Owner Response: The Lazy B Waterfront Suite is perfect for a friends getaway (up to 4 girlfriends). I have spent time with my 2 besties in the Suite too and it was a blast.......a GREAT comfy slumber party with a spectacular view. So glad you all had a great stay.

      Reviewed by Sara M. on July 08, 2017 for their trip during June 2017

      We arrived tired and weary and left rested and refreshed! Beautiful suite, scenery and sounds of waves greeted us each day. Warnings about the road are accurate, extremely steep and difficult to navigate. As mentioned by the owner, a smaller 4 wheel drive is preferred. Our Highlander was a bit big but we conquered! Absolutely stunning!

      Owner Response: Sara, thank you for staying with us at the Lazy B Waterfront Suite. Great to hear that you were rested, refreshed and rejuvenated .......a good recharge before going back to work. Thank you for mastering our All Wheel Drive access road. It is a challenge but once at the Waterfront Suite it is so worth the trip. You are right, the views are stunning. Thanks again. Jan.

    • I loved my stay

      Reviewed by Jason W. from San Francisco, California on June 06, 2017 for their trip during May 2017

      This property was wonderful for my friend and I to get away for a few days, the accommodations left us wanting for nothing. Jan was very helpful in making our stay perfect. The suite was well stocked with items to prepare our own meals. The bathroom was remodeled and modern. The kitchen was also modern - the whole place was gorgeous. We BBQ'd every day and enjoyed the stunning view and deck. We pretty well spent most of our time on the deck watching the ferries go by, enjoying wine and preparing BBQ and chilling. We also enjoyed the private beach and even jumped off the dock to swim. We enjoyed kayak rentals and boated to the suite and back from Snug Cove. We had such a good stay, loved the view and suite, we will be back.

      Owner Response: Jason, you found the best on Bowen Island. Not only the Lazy B Waterfront Suite but all the best activities too: kayaking, swimming off the beach below, BBQing and relaxing on our new expansive waterfront decks. Please do come back and enjoy the Suite again. Jan

    • Perfect for a girfriends weekend getaway!

      Reviewed by Leigh-Anne B. on March 26, 2017 for their trip during March 2017

      The Lazy B Waterfront Suite is perfect for a weekend getaway. One of my girlfriends and I were in need of a weekend away from Vancouver for some R&R. Armed with wine, ingredients for some great meals, and books, we headed off for the short easy trip to Bowen Island. This suite is lovely and so well located overlooking, and steps from, a fabulous beach. The view of the mainland from the two spacious patios is stunning, just watching the ferry's come and go was relaxing. The suite has everything you need - in fact once we got there we never left! For cooks, the kitchen is super well equipped as is the bathroom with thoughtful amenities. I am hoping to book the whole house in the near future for a family golf weekend (Bowen has a fantastic golf course). I highly recommend this fabulous rental.

      Owner Response: Leigh-Anne, it is great to hear that we were the perfect R&R location for you and your girlfriend. Our 2014 renovation with the huge new decks, expanded view windows, granite counter, and dishwasher has been a real guest pleaser. Combine the Panoramic Waterfront Views and beach just a minute down the trail it is a very special getaway. We would love to have you and your family return and stay in the Whole House. Be sure to reserve the Whole House well in advance to have the Whole House available. That is the perfect recipe for memorable times with family and friends.

    • Fantastic cozy getaway with breathtaking view

      Reviewed by Steven F. on January 22, 2017 for their trip during January 2017

      The Lazy Bowen is an amazingly cozy and self contained suite just 6 mins drive from Snug cove. Located just above a rocky beach, the suites standout feature is its wide spacious deck complete with outdoor seating and BBQ that overlooks the water. Perfect for a lazy day reading by the wood stove watching the ferries cross back and forth. Everything is provided from basic kitchen staples to logs for the stove. We had a great time just kicking back and enjoying the surroundings.

      Owner Response: Thank you so much Steven for highlighting some of the very best features of the Lazy B Waterfront Suite. When we renovated the property in 2014 expanding the Suite deck and adding the covered area was a much desired feature for the property. So happy to hear that you really enjoyed and appreciated it. The waterfront views are certainly maximized with the decks but also the 24 feet of glass that opens out to the views has made the Suite a stunning and relaxing getaway location. Love to have you be our guests again.

      I came to here for a weekend away with two dear friends and it was absolutely perfect. The covered deck was our hangout spot of choice - the rain fell but we stayed dry and cozy yet still got to enjoy the gorgeous ocean views and warm breeze from the outside deck. The beds were comfortable, kitchen was stocked well, and we had a lovely, lovely time. I will look forward to coming back again!

      Thank you Jan for a remarkable stay and opening up your place to our family. Charming, quaint, and the view... stunning. Conveniently located just minutes from Snug Cove. The mattress was on the soft side for my wife and I but we had an enjoyable time overall. Many thanks again!

      As others have noted, the views are absolutely breathtaking! Once you sit on this deck, the minutes (and stresses from day-to-day life) seems to slip away! Since there is an undercover deck as well, the space can be enjoyed regardless of the weather. The suite itself is super cute and very clean. We only had two nights and wished we could stay longer. We went on short walks/hikes, beach combed, checked out the Artisan Square and lounged. We ate in, the kitchen is well equipped and organized. Jan (owner/manager) is extremely responsive and provides lots of information to help with your stay. Next time we plan to stay in the upper suite and/or rent the entire house with friends/family.

      Owner Response: We so appreciate you sharing your experience at the Lazy B Waterfront Suite. Future guests will love to learn about the All weather covered deck plus, you have reaffirmed, again, the views are gorgeous. So glad to hear that you were able to relax and leave your regular life behind.......even if it was for a short 2 days. We would love to have you back. Jan

      My husband and I enjoyed 7 blissful nights & days at this wonderful accommodation thanks to Jan, the owner. Her attention to detail and designer touches enhance the overall experience of being perched high above Howe Sound. The views are absolutely spell binding from both inside and outside this little hideaway. Don't miss the weekend brunch at Artisan Eats in Artisan Square and enjoy patio dining at Tuscany Pizza, Rustique Bistro and Doc Morgan's all close by in Snug Cove. Both the General Store and the Ruddy Potato market also offer a good variety of foods if you choose to eat in. Easy ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay or Nanaimo. If you are looking for a perfect couples retreat this one will not disappoint.

      We enjoyed a perfect vacation weekend on Bowen Island thanks to Jan and her beautiful property. We rented this unit and the adjacent one, both of which are very cozy and well maintained. The best part for us was all of the deck space; It provided plenty of room to relax and enjoy the spectacular view. It's even better than what you can see in the pictures. There's also a public dock next door for water access, or just to enjoy another great view point. Jan was an excellent host, providing detailed information and quick responses to any questions. If I end up back on Bowen, I'd definitely stay here again.

In addition to both waterfront vacation rentals are self contained and completely separate spaces inside and out.

      Beautiful property! We were so cozy and listening to a crackling fire and lapping of the waves, was sublime. Tonic for the soul. The apt was extremely clean, well equipped, perfect. The kitchen is stocked with all utensils you would ever need and the library of books, DVD's and Videos is a really nice touch. The Bathroom is a good size and the shower was great! I would assume that the deck(s) would be amazing in the warmer months, but it did not stop us sitting out in early January. The Beach is just 3 mins away and is lovely. The road to the cabin, off the main road is steep. If you are arriving after dark, a flashlight is recommended. Walking up, certainly gives you a work out, especially with luggage. If you have a heavy case/bag, be warned. We both loved this place and will look forward to staying for a longer time than we initially did. Thanks Jan. Lovely place

      Owner Response: Jamie we would love to have you both return. GREAT guests!!! We are truly proud of our new decks that we offer. The sun deck with BBQ and table just above the beach is great on a sunny spring day or for sunning in the summer. But the NEW COVERED DECK is really good all year long as it protects you from the hot sun in the summer or gives you a sheltered outdoor space to enjoy the rain and waves from below. Thank you for mentioning our is walkable and, you are right, pack light as it is the walk back up the road that will be a work out. Of course, if a guest drives an AWD or 4WD vehicle there is parking on the property eliminating the exercise opportunity. Thanks again for your kind review and we hope to host you both again soon.

      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.

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.

      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.

      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!

      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!

Comfort was a priority when we selected the bed and other 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.

      Reviewed by Jo-Ann H. from Vancouver on September 27, 2011 for their trip during August 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… 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.”
