We greatly enjoyed our hospitality stay in Julie and Steve's shore cabin. Julie and Steve were kind, very knowledgeable about the area, and offered a place with easy access to Ucluelet, a stunning view, and all the necessities that was very clean, comfortable, and well organized. Ucluelet was a fun place to visit with great hikes, scenery, wildlife, and other outdoor-focused activities. Many thanks to Julie and Steve for sharing their little peace of heaven!
Julie's guest cabin is a perfect oasis by the sea. I truly enjoyed the peacefulness of watching the birds come and go from the lagoon from my private deck area each morning and stoking the wood fire. I was lucky with good weather to enjoy all that Ucluelet has to offer. Although this space is a guest cabin, it was equipped with what I needed to cook for myself. Julie was a wonderful host that was incredibly easy to communicate. Not only would I recommend her as a host, but I hope to have the opportunity to exchange with her one day in the future again!
I’ve been really lucky to exchange to Vancouver Island(Parksville) but I also wanted to visit the West coast of the island (Tofino and Ucluelet).
I know from previous attempt to reach out that luck wasn’t gonna be on my side, but decided to try again.
I found Julies listing in Ucluelet and sent her a message asking If she’d be interested in either a non-sim exchange or hospitality for a few days.
To my absolute thrilled Julie replied positively back that she could host me for a couple of days -Yay!
From our very first contact, Julie has been a pleasure to communicate with, being very Open and helpful.
As I on my arrival day was doing a full day boat trip and therefore I arrived pretty late in Ucluelet, it Julie was up waiting for me and bid me welcome and show me to my room.
As the cabin in the listing was occupied at this time they let me stay in their own home (same properly).
I’m so grateful for Julie and husband to open their home to me as finding accomodation in high season is next to impossible.
And not only did they welcome me, they really spoiled me big time, making me coffee in the morning and left me plates with dinner in the evenings - totally yummy food 🤗
Julie was also a well of knowledge about what to see and do around Ucluelet. Their home is perfectly located within easy walking distance of the popular Light House Trail and another short walk into town.
I never used my car the time I was there except for arriving and departing, but walked everywhere.
Ucluelet is a wonderful little corner with so much charm and plenty tons to see and do for its small size. Well worth spending time to check out the locsl artists work, most of it is really amazing and I had the good fortune to attend an Art Show meeting one of the local artist while there.
I would have loved to stay longer here and with Julie and Steve (did actually offer that they could adopt me... 🤪).
Thank you Julie and Steve for hosting me and making my stay so perfect!
As I was your first exchange experience, I hope I didnt scare you of from doing it again 😜
Julie was a wonderful guest in my home. She left my home in beautiful condition and was very easy to communicate with prior to our exchange. I would be happy to welcome her in my home again or recommend her highly to anyone else.
