After 2 weeks travelling round BC staying in hotels, it was so nice to have our own little place to chill out in for the last few nights of our honeymoon. We loved the island, so peaceful, and Ralph and Rockys tips on what to see and do were spot on. The islands few shops had everythign we needed for...

The hosts, Ralph and Rocky, are very gracious and had a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. Later that evening we had homemade pie and ice cream hand-delivered from Rocky for dessert! We stayed in the self-contained bottom floor apartment for four nights. We found Ralph and Rocky's overview of the island including places we may want...

We spent three wonderful nights there...it is comfortable, clean and has everything you'll need for an escape...close enough to Mainland so you can go for a weekend. The children enjoyed the great selection of movies and we enjoyed the beautifully arranged garden and all the nice details inside and outside this small but very welcoming cabin. The best?

We wanted a family getaway before high season started and the prices went through the roof. It was a challenge to find a nice, cozy 2 bedroom place for our 18 month old son and our large dog. Some welcomed dogs (with a long list of rules) and not children and others welcomed children and not dogs. We rented Arrow's...

Out stay at S+S was pretty much perfect. The cottage itself was lovely, comfortable, clean, cozy with every convenience for the family including books, magazines, puzzles, fresh flowers, and high quality linens. We were delightfully surprised and appreciative of the chilled wine and homemade dessert. We admired the eclectic collection of folk art and other creative works including much of...

I have stayed on Galiano many other times and loved it. This time however our usual place was sold out. Bummer I thought what will we do? I reviewed every property on the island and was very interested in Sticks and Stones due to the wonderful reviews and lovely pictures. I emailed to ask availability during Labour Day long weekend...

Thank you for your glowing review. It is especially gratifying to know that it was written by an experienced Travel Agent. We appreciate that you took the time to write this review. Providing a quality experience for our guests is utmost in our minds and being able to show 'island' guests the 'hidden' highlights of Galiano makes us feel good...

Our stay began on a very wet, cold, dark night -- in contrast was the warmth of our host, Rocky, who had also thoughtfully lit the fire and warmed the cottage in anticipation of our arrival--she also brought over delicious slices of homebaked apple pie with ice cream. She was very informative about the island and her hiking suggestions were...

Thank you for taking the time to write a few words about your stay with us. November is often colder on the west coast but this year even more so. Power outages on Pender Island and a rough ferry ride to Galiano must have upped the excitement level for you both. We are pleased to read that you appreciated the...

Ralph and Rocky are the perfect hosts and attentive to their customers' needs. Small personal touches, like providing guests with a cappuccino and carrot cake on a grey day, really perked everyone up and made the visit special - thank you!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Ralph and Rocky! We stayed here for a week to celebrate our dog's 10th birthday.
