How To Book a Rental
Thanks for your interest in our vacation rentals. If you have a specific property and dates in mind, it’s probably best to first check that the location you have in mind is available.
To see what dates are available:
On the property page you’ve selected, click on the ‘check availability’ button under the property images/video, or scroll down the page to see the availability calendar. From there you can see which dates are already booked (not available, in purple) and which are currently open (in white). If the days you’re looking for are open, you’re good to go.
Ready to make a booking?
There are three ways you can book your rental property:
1) Directly through me John Beaumier, the property owner. Give me a call at (250) 686-5646, or send me an e-mail through the contact form if you’d rather. I can facilitate a variety of payment options including bank transfers (Interac, wires), Paypal, cheques, money orders and more. Please note that if you’re looking for a rental with little advanced notice – I may not be able to ‘hold’ the property for you if I’m waiting for funds to clear or arrive in the mail, but I’m happy to work with your preferred option.
2) Through VRBO. A popular venue for finding vacation rentals around the world, our Vancouver Island properties are listed through VRBO; and bookings/payments can be handled directly through their site if that is your preference. A VRBO link is available on each of our property pages. Please note, VRBO may add minor additional fees that are out of our control.
3) Through Airbnb. Another popular site for short term property rentals, and once again bookings/payments can be handled directly through their site. Once again though, additional service fees may be added on top of the rental costs that are out of our control.
Keeping the above in mind, I would suggest contacting me directly for the best cost on your rental and as a quick way to get in touch so I can answer any questions you may have beforehand. That said, some people are accustomed to the above platforms, and either option is fine if it’s your preference (and of course you’re still more than welcome to contact me with your questions even if you’re using a third party site to book.)
