Tucker Bay

Merrick and I met with Mike Pearson, Operations Manager at the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure this morning. Unfortunately, the Ministry's position is that Tucker Bay is not a public road, despite the voluminous evidence to the contrary.

Sunny Vacation Rental

Sunny Vacation Rentals in Mexico

I hear you have been having a stormy fall on Lasqueti. Feeling you might need to get away, or just dream a little? We still have places available for rent this winter in La Manzanilla. 

The lighthouse is three stories and has a palm thatched roof - a bit like something in a fairy tale. There is a separately housed kitchen and an extra outdoor bathroom ( behind a stand of bird of paradise). We are putting in an extra bed so the place can accommodate up to four people. Special Lasqueti rates this year: $675 cnd. for a month (or $500 usd normally $650 usd.)  We have availability  now through to mid Feb.  *Ask Merrick or Darzo about it, they stayed here last year.

Studio Escondida The studio is an large open space with great views and a domed palapa roof. It has a basic kitchen, queen size bed and bathroom. String up an extra hammock and have a friend stay too:) Special Lasqueti rates: $550 cnd. a month (or $400 usd. normally $500 usd.) 

Escondida Main Floor  Translates to the "hidden house".  This is tucked away into the hillside, surrounded by lush tropical plants and views of the ocean.Two bedrooms, two bathrooms. We still have availability for Dec. and March.

Paul's Place  is a little more up- town, two bedrooms and centrally located. We have two sets of Lasquetions renting here this winter. December through to mid Jan. is still available.

That's my real estate hat. David- my partner has built and designed the houses listed above. Send me an email and I will provide you with photos and pricing details.

Miss you all, Karla
