Jack’s place is full of opportunity. Learn to spend time in the water scuba diving or snorkeling. Then head out for some fine food and sight seeing. Take a day to relax at the pool. Head out for some crab or prawn catching then enjoy the catch of the day in their lovely home. We are a family of 5, our children are 18, 21 and 23 years old and we all had a fantastic time.

Jack is amazing. He ensures you are very knowledgeable which in turn ensures your safety. He is attentive yet chill so you can enjoy the experience. He taught my mom and my dad and then myself as well as my daughter when she was 12. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Staying at Jack and Pamela’s place was such a highlight for our two families and kids. We spent our days enjoying lawn games on the huge property, picking fresh blackberries and lounging poolside. Everything was kept very clean with everything we needed. The heated pool was amazing… We spent many hours in it. Overall we loved it and are excited to go back.

Jack is a really great host – whether you are in for fun in the pool, like to cook a cozy dinner in the excellently equipped family kitchen or whether you convince Jack to take you for a whale safari or wreck dive – he spends his day with making you feel at home. Thx Jack, we will be back…

Jack and Pam are wonderful, thoughtful and informative. The home is beautifully kept, fantastic linens. The property itself a little piece of heaven, so relaxing, surrounded by gorgeous old growth forest. If you want some reprieve from the hectic city or are visiting Canada, this place is ideal. Thank you Jack and Pam for everything 🙂

By far the most amazing Airbnb place I have booked! It is so beautiful, well designed, and very clean! Jack and Pam are wonderful hosts, even when we missed our ferry and check-in time, they were able to accommodate us! We were sad that we didn’t have enough time to enjoy all the services Jack offers, but we will definitely be coming back to take the scuba diving and snorkelling classes!

Great place to stay, relax, and have lots of fun. Amazing pool and backyard to enjoy great summer weather. Jack was a great host who was around all weekend if we had questions about the place but kept his distance and did not interrupt our stay. Highly recommend for a great vacation spot in Victoria.

Diving Experiences

Jack … gave me a few solo boat dives in the area including Church, Mackenzie, and a few others. There’s a pinnacle in Saanich Inlet at 80′, and there’s a bunch of huge cloud sponges over the side of it at 130′ or so. Surface vis was zero, but it opened up to 100’+ below so it was a great ‘night dive’ in the daytime.

Spent 12 min there, alone with the darkness, the stillness, the narcosis, and these massive ancient sort-of-animals. A long meditative moment I’ll take to the grave.

What our Guests Say

We had a wonderful time. The location worked great for our day trip to Saltspring. The pool was warm and the sitting areas outside were perfect for enjoying the sun together. The home was comfortable and clean. Samantha
