Fantastic wilderness experience, delicious food, superb guides, gorgeous scenery and beautiful tranquility. Thanks so much.”

Nancy Pearlman, Los Angeles, California

Don’t think I’ve ever kayaked, hiked, ATV’d, ate fresh crab, snarfed oysters from the beach, etc, etc, all in a couple of days. Everything I hoped for (and more!!!) in showing the beauty that is the West Coast of BC to friends from abroad. Art, you’re a superb host, full of tales and good wilderness sense. Thank you for keeping the tradition of outback hospitality alive! Next time I’ll start with the sauna.

Roger Phillips, Surrey, BC

TZOONIE ROCKS!!! We got it all, fresh seafood, black bears, (holy S!!!), eagles, herons, sunshine, rain, clam bakes, live crab and wonderful hospitality.

Louise, the Red Charlies Angel, Vancouver, BC

It was the first time I ever dug for clams and oysters and cooked them over the open fire. An amazing stay. I am so happy to have come and stayed and will be back.

Erika Britney, the Blonde Charlies Angel, Vancouver, BC

Tzoonie – The smorgasborg of Heaven!! A place where the soul can breath once again… Silence, Solace, Catharsis, Plentitude and Laughter. We’ll be back to fill our spirit again.

Tanya, the Dark Charlies Angel, Vancouver, BC

Thank you for creating a joyous place… The bountiful beaches, the warmth of your conversations, the ease of living naturally, the incomparable landscape, the unending quiet of the trees, the ever present soothing sound of water moving over rocks… Your love for this place communicates itself to us. We love it too!!!

Jim Becker, Calgary, AB

Thank you, thank you, thank you for such a wonderful place for our family gathering. Everyone had such a great time. We thank you for the food, the stories, the sharing of our lives. We will always remember this and will be back.

The Morgans from several U.S. States

Needed a few relaxing days in a quiet natural setting, and I got it. Hoped for some delicious seafood and was rewarded with lovely oysters, cod, salmon and tremendous crab. Never expected to find new friends and such a warm spirit, but indulged in that to my hearts content.

Vince Verloan, Roberts Creek BC

Art, you are a gentleman – thanks for being a great host. Excellent cutthroat fishing. The Inlet is beautiful! We will be back! Facilities are great.

Aaron Van Pyksha ( Anglers West Fly & Tackle Vancouver)

We enjoyed this great Canadian outdoor experience so much that there will be a story told every now and then in that far east corner of my world. Thank you for the fun, hospitality and the fishing.

Susan & S K Foong, Malaysia

We could not ask for better hospitality even if we wanted to. Both of you have been so nice to us. We loved every moment of this adventure, the mountains, ocean, peace & quiet as well as the fishing and all the seafood we could eat.

Marta & Julian Houlding, Vancouver (originally from South Africa and Poland)

We just finished the crab you gave us. Unbelievable!! Probably the highlight of the trip. It’s hard to narrow it down to one highlight, between the oysters, kayaking, hiking and relaxing. Thanks so much.

Sarah Szydelko, Vancouver, BC

We had a fantastic time. I’ve lived in the Pacific NW my whole life yet I’ve never encountered anything so beautiful, untouched and pristine. Thank you for your excellent hospitality and kindness.

Rye Armstrong, Vancouver, BC

Three cheers to Art and Aleta! Finding the right words to express our experience here at Tzoonie is difficult! A few key words would be “Breathtaking”, “Beautiful”, “Relaxing”, “Rewarding”, “Caring”, and “Loving”. To all the gang at Tzoonie thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us. We all hope to leave this earth leaving something behind and making a difference…..You have done just that!

Darcy and Kendra Hickey, The Banff Girls

What a wonderful place! Thank you so much for your hospitality and the wonderful fishing. We won’t ever forget this! Awesome seafood, trees, boats and people!

Tony and Alair Micocci, New York City

……….an experience and memories that will stay with us forever.
