We were on Hornby Island last summer with our kids and rented the studio adjoining the main house. The kitchen was well equipped, which was great because we were usually too tired at night after a day at the beach to go out to eat. The place is eclectically furnished, and there are many old novels and books to read in the upstairs loft, should the weather be rainy.
The biggest problem we had with the place was the stench from the bathroom. Apparently males with really bad aim had been peeing in there for years, and the old cracked linoleum had been soaking it up the whole time. The stench was awful. And the bathroom was right by the kitchen, so it was difficult to eat with the smell coming out of there, even with the door kept closed. It was gag worthy. And really unsanitary to be preparing meals next to what effectively is an outhouse.
The owners must be able to smell the stench, they just don't want to pay the small expense of replacing the small 5x8 (at most) piece of linoleum in there with something new.
Too bad, because otherwise the place would be fine.More
