Had the most amazing relaxing time at Sylvia’s...oh and some good belly laughs too! What a getaway! She had me at: “ Where do you want to go?...the ocean, the lake...or the river?” We went to all three. A bike ride along the ocean, a walk along the lake and some deep and inspirational conversation whilst dipping our feet in the river at Nymph Falls. What could be better than this? I live in Alberta and totally forget how really close the ocean can be if and when you want to be near it.
What a super host Sylvia was. She picked us up at the airport, opened and shared her home with us and took us wherever we wanted to go. When asked why she does this? She said; “I am grateful for what I have and I want to share it with others”. I think this is what made it so comfortable there. I spent three nights and four days at Sylvia’s Getaway and I wanted to stay longer. While there, I was able to do some of my most Favorite things; hiking, biking, walking and having some great conversations with other women. I felt rested and recharged when I went home. I highly recommend this getaway!

My time at Sylvia's was wonderful.
Three days of total "I can do and being want ever I want"
Wonderful, nutritious food, great wine and just enough company.
The Comox valley is beautiful this time of year, we hiked, spent time at the beach, read on the deck over looking Sylvia's garden.
We created fabulous meals together in her kitchen, her home is welcoming and Sylvia is warm and friendly, offering a splendid 3 day getaway.
I would highly recommend at visit to Sylvia's if you are in need of girlfriend time and time just for you.
I felt totally pampered being pick up/dropped off at the airport, chauffeured around with Sylvia as our personal guide. I would highly recommend at visit to Sylvia's if you are in need of girlfriend time and time just for you.
I can't wait to return.

I'm a single mom of 2 and needed a quick getaway that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. I booked with Sylvia for 7 days and it was just what my kids and I needed. We flew in to Comox from Alberta and Sylvia picked us up from the airport. We mentioned what we'd like to do while we were visiting and we got what we asked for. She took us to the best beaches, hiking trails, kayaking, exploring and shopping. Sylvia prepared meals for us each day in her comfortable home and she was extremely easy to talk to. I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing way to get away from stress. I highly recommend booking with Sylvia. I'll definitely be doing it again.

What a wonderful experience staying at Sylvia’s for the weekend! I felt so welcome and taken care of. Sylvia is wonderful to be around, I love her sense of style and fiery spirit.

I left this little retreat refreshed, nature-filled and with boundless energy to tackle life. Cherry on top of the cake: Sylvia even gave me a new haircut and colour that reflected my personality! I can’t recommend enough.
