Q. Can we stay for a single night?
A. We do occasionally allow single night stays mid-week and during the off season only. When we do allow a single night stay we add a single night surcharge to your stay ranging from $50 to $150 depending on the rental.
Q. Why do you charge a single night surcharge?
A. Whether you stay a single night or longer the cost of cleaning our cottage, Suite or Rooms is the same........We are proud to say they are cleaned thoroughly by the cleaners on Bowen. Therefore our cost structure requires us to charge a single night surcharge for your single night stay.........when available.

A. We sure do. Book 7 nights and receive 5% off of your booking. We do not offer discounts during holidays or the high summer season.
Q. Would you be interested in renting as a long term monthly rental?
If you are looking for a long term rental you can calculate our weekly rate and then multiply by the number of weeks you would need to be staying to get an idea of your long term rate. Your rate will include weekly cleaning. Rentals 30 days or more are not charged gst.
Q. Why do you charge for additional guests at your properties?
A. We often have a just couples as guests so we have start our rates at double occupancy making it affordable for a couple to stay. When there are more guests we do charge addtional fees as the cleaners typically will have more cleaning chores and more laundry to complete for a larger group versus a couple. Plus there is additional amenity usage. We believe this is a win win for us and our guests.
Q. Do you charge for children?
A. Yes, we do charge for children as an additional guest. With the exception of infants that are not yet walking we do charge for all guests including children. Unlike hotel rooms we have many nooks and crannies, glass, and objects that require deep cleaning like a real home. Our house keepers do an excellent job of cleaning after each turnover and this all takes additional time with additional guests. Plus all guests use bedding, water, towels, and other amenities.
Q. Do you have a Jacuzzi?
A. Sorry, no, none of our rental have outdoor Jacuzzis. Believe it or not, water is a precious resource on Bowen especially during the summer when it can be rationed. The amount of water needed would tax our water resources.
Q. Do you have a sauna?
A. No, sorry, we do not have a sauna.
Q. Do you offer on site massage treatments?
A. By all means, schedule a massage treatment with Jenni Griffiths, RMT, of Cedar Room Massage Therrapy. She offers therapeutic or relaxation massage treatments on site or at her studio. Call Jenni @ 604.240.6485 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
