Our first RV weekend in our new RV. It was perfect. Weather not so nice but we really enjoyed being close to the water and many hikes close by.We managed to visit the Garden Bay Pub while were there. It is a short walk. Rhonda was a great help.

Three days of delight in the Garden Bay resort. We stayed in Prawn Palace cottage on the water. Could be a little cleaner more attention to detail. There were dead flies on the sills. Very peaceful. We spent three days watching the harbour seals and sea otters. Village store on hand and pub close by. Staff delightful

This property has been undergoing substantial renovations over the last year and when it's all finished it will be even nicer. We boated in after several days along the Jervis Inlet and booked the #1 cabin on a deck overlooking the docks. The staff were very friendly and the accommodations nicely maintained. The wife, girls and baby stayed in the...

My daughter and I stayed for three nights - first, we were upgraded to a waterfront cottage, beautiful setting and the two cottages were super cute painted in east coast colours. Unfortunately, the upgrade seemed to end there. The bed was so uncomfortable (too hard, like third world hotel hard) and the sofa bed was an old ikea model but...

We always stop here on our way North! Fabulous place helpful staff! Laundry, showers store, gas , beer, wine. Call ahead for mooring space! It is quiet right now but it can get busy July and August. Look for the resident old deer, she loved the garden when we were here. Short dinghy ride for a large grocery store.

We stayed here to attend a wedding at the Sundowner Inn. I was pleasantly surprised to find out upon our arrival that we were upgraded to our first choice of cottage: The Prawn Palace - a bright red dwelling that shares a spacious deck with the Oyster Shack. The deck extends over the shoreline of the marina and Garden Bay....

Rented a waterfront cottage ("Prawn Palace") for a night. It was clean and comfortable, in a retro-charming kind of way. One is treated to picturesque views from sitting at the kitchen table or deck. Staff handled our last-minute request graciously and delivered great service. Very appreciative of that. Grounds were well-maintained. Would return for another stay.

The cottage and its location is really great, on a pretty waterfront location at a marina, it has a small outdoor area with picnic table and propaine BBQ. Plus it was a short walk to the Garden Bay Pub where alot of...

On route to a 3 day getaway we received divesting news that a parent was terminally ill and we needed to return home as soon as possible. We called the resort immediately to advise them we would need to cut our stay from 3 nights to 2 nights (due to ferry schedules permitting us to return home that same day)....

Short and sweet everything was good rooms clean,amazing view,friendly staff ,boat rental all get a thumbs up. The only thing I would say that could have been better was the beds and pillows. Both the fold out and maine bed were on the hardish side but apart from that it was a great stay and I would defiantly recommend it.
