Perfect wedding in a perfect setting; perfect weather for a perfect couple. Thank you for sharing your Pointhouse. Your environment is a blessed combination of earth, forest water in nature. This will always be one of my fondest memories.

My fiancé (now husband) and I first came to the Pointhouse on Valentine's Day for a romantic getaway. We fell in love with it and got married there in August. Our wedding was small and intimate. We rented the entire property for a week and had our families stay there with us. It was the best destination wedding I could ever imagine, only a 45 minute ferry ride away from Vancouver. Heather is a very attentive, kind and accommodating hostess and her property is a stunner. We will most certainly return in the future for either a romantic getaway, a family or friends reunion, or hopefully another wedding of our friends (or vows renewal)? Only the best dreamy, fairytale-like memories made here. This place will always have our hearts.
We stayed 4 nights, booked an elopement package, explored the area. It was secluded, quiet and nearby Sargeant Bay park was perfect to say our vows. Heather was very nice and handled all the arrangements. The Pointhouse was very clean and peaceful. We were able to book a couples massage at the Pointhouse the morning of our elopement which was lovely. The real star was Tracy, our chef for our wedding dinner, she was fabulous! She made us a three course meal we will never forget! (That salad!!) Everything was perfect for our elopement (cake, flowers, photographer) It meant a lot to us. Absolutely stay at the Pointhouse, you won’t regret it!
