We stayed at Susan & Roelof’s house at Qualicum Beach for one night. This sociable English/Dutch couple invited us to a tour of their wonderful garden, then, as a welcome, Philippe was offered a tasting of Reoelof’s home-brewed beer and Yasuko some cherries and later even a glass of wine before going to bed. The next morning Susan & Roelof spoiled us with a three course breakfast with fruit salad, a salmon crepe and a fruit crepe! All organic or home-grown fruits were delicious and Yasuko who loves berries was all smiles : ) Wonderful breakfast in their garden booming with gorgeous flowers, organic berries and herbs.
We had such interesting conversations on the Canadian/Swiss politics, problematic Vancouver Island’s railway (the trains are not running), etc. that we stayed up close to midnight! We felt that we came as Airbnb guests and left as their houseguests.
