Let’s Answer Some of Your Questions
It’s a good idea, before you book any accommodations, to know what you’re getting into. Have good expectations about what you’re paying for. Especially if it’s going to be your home for a week or 2. Allow us to clear up a few things you may be wondering about. Here are some of the majors.
What kind of costs are we looking at?
Rates are different for high season and low season. See the Bookings page for those numbers. There is a refundable damage deposit of $150. Just treat the home like you would your own and don’t let Fluffy spray on the sofa and we should be good.
Why are you charging me
Starting Oct. 2018 we are obligated to start charging PST and Municipal and Regional District Tax.
Are Pets Allowed?
Oh yes, my friend. We welcome your furry buddies. We know what it’s like to travel with your animals and we don’t go anywhere without them. We have 2 dogs of our own. It will be important that everyone gets along. We’d ask you to keep it to a 2 pet maximum. And please always have a bag on hand to collect your pup’s treasures.
Is Daily Housekeeping Included?
This isn’t the Hilton. We don’t fold your towels into funny little shapes. Your cottage will be clean and well kept when you arrive.

If you’re staying for 2 weeks, we can arrange for mid-stay spit and polish for an additional charge.
Where’s My Breakfast?
I was just going to ask you the same thing. You have a great kitchen at your disposal just waiting for you to try making something you’ve never tried before. Riverside isn’t a BnB. Think of it more like a
Deposits | Cancellation Fees
Can you really put a price on tranquillity? Let’s give it a whirl. We require a 50% deposit within 24 hours of booking. The remainder of the fees
Once you get here, just start yelling. If we don’t come running, the dogs will. We are generally home so will be happy to greet you upon arrival. The best bet is to keep in contact with us and if you’re coming straight from the ferry, give us a shout getting close to the dock.
What’s the Parking Sitch?
As Guests, Can our Guests Bring Guests?
We’re guessing you jest. The cabin is meant for you and your family. That said, of
Do We All Get Keys
We’ll have a pair of keys for your group. Any more than that and you’ll think you can come and go as you please. Wait… you CAN come and go as you please. If for some reason you need another key, we’ll happily oblige. But if you think, “Hey… look at all these keys we have. Doesn’t matter if we lose one.”, you’ll be sad when we hit you up for the $25 key replacement.
