I've been enchanted with it all".
E.P. Washington USA
"A damp dewy morning. Gentle patter of the rain upon the
shingles, a caw - cawing of a pheasant, and then silence………….
Then the scream of a jet engine and the thunder as the
"Snowbirds" took flight. Bravo!"
J.H. Penticton, B.C.
"I've traveled far and wide, it's rare indeed to find such a
peace and quiet. Hand crafted items and the personal touch make
this "home from home". Thank you for welcoming a South African
into your home."
M.C. Johannesburg, S.A.
"Thank you so much for the restful retreat! The pheasants,
eagles, gulls, & fish boats' hauling in their herring is the
only rush hour I enjoy. It was so nice to come back to this
quiet room after a busy day at work."
J.K. Powell River, B.C.
"As I write these lines, I can hear the high winds through the
branches, like waves hitting the beach at high tide, and wind
chimes, sign of human presence near by. I enjoyed the quietness
of my stay, the discussions we shared, the breakfasts……………"
G.S. Rimouski, P.Q.

many magic moments watching the sun rise and set, the eagles and
hawks soaring and trumpeter swans announcing their presence.
Combined with Dove and Michaels hospitality, superb breakfasts
and warm fire we arrive back home renewed, rechallenged, with
new breakfast combinations to try on our cold Saskatchewan
mornings. We have caught the west coast fever and look forward
to our next migration."
J. And L. EW, Saskatoon.

nice to say about Dove & Michael, Kate, the house and property
or the breakfasts. Everyone would like to return, us included.

done!" Thanks again.
J.H And K.J. Vancouver, B.C.

delight! One steps back to a time when people sought privacy,
comfort and most importantly relaxation. The old trees, chirping
birds and magical view are among the many secrets hidden here!
Thank you for sharing".
N. And J. Thetis Island

fuzzy feather bedcover - smelling the wood all around me. It
really felt hard to get up today. What a magical place to stay!"
C.W. Vancouver, B.C.
"Some places are 'just like home', here it is 'just like we wish
home would be'. Thank you ever so much for providing a most
enjoyable retreat, God Bless and keep you, and may your B&B

room for us when we return!"

K.B. 5 year old Vancouver, B.C.

"There's a feeling here one knows
at Foskett House.
The sea, the gate, Kate,
The driveway to sanctuary,
The skeleton key, the double doors,
The wooden walls and floors -
All tell of the living done here before.
In 1920, built on a dream,
Today it awakens the dreaming,
More than a special kind of place,
Foskett House is touched by caring hands,
Shows warmth like a friendly face -
A warm embrace.
Dove and Michael Live here,
Have come home from a flight of fury
They make peace with living,
And gently place it in our laps,
A gift, a subtle giving.
Terisa Klassen. Calgary, Alta.

It was such a pleasure, to share in your treasure.
L.F. Don Mills, Ontario
It is places like this that make business travel an adventure
and an experience to savor. The house is a treasure and my room
was heaven, to fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing
over the beach was superb. The weather was wild, but I felt snug
and warm in my down covered bed, and was lulled into blissful

delightful home. Your artistic ability has made it unique ... A
happy memory of our stay in Comox. "

"There is a definite feel of Africa here, not only in the
permeated atmosphere of the house, with the wide, cool veranda,
but also in the outlook - over the slightly browned grass and
through the dense greenery to the flat expansive ocean blue."
John and Pippa, Vancouver, BC (but out of Africa)
