PJ's ISLAND and SUBSEA RETREAT - Snorkel and Scuba Diver Training and Tours

“Staying at Jack and Pamela’s place was such a highlight for our two families and kids. What a great spot. We spent our days enjoying lawn games on the huge property, picking fresh blackberries and lounging poolside. Everything was kept very clean with everything we needed. The heated pool was amazing… We spent many hours in it. The recommendations of places to go from our hosts were thoughtful and always accurate. Overall we loved it and are excited to back.”

“Best feature of this place is the outdoor area. Perfect patio with an amazing heated pool, lounge chairs, pool floaters and a very large grassy back yard perfect for any lawn games.”

– Nitin

“Jack’s place is full of opportunity. Learn to spend time in the water scuba diving or snorkeling. Then head out for some fine food and sight seeing. Take a day to relax at the pool. Head out for some crab or prawn catching then enjoy the catch of the day in their lovely home. We are a family of 5, our children are 18, 21 and 23 years old and we all had a fantastic time.”

– Pete

“The house is in a beautiful location (close to the Swartz ferry terminal), a wonderful yard with a fantastic pool area. Caretakers were great and very accommodating, whenever our group had an inquiry or needed something specific Pamela and Jack were happy to help.”

– Madison

“What a great slice of backyard heaven! The pool and the deck overlooking the beautiful manicured back yard were my favourite. Can’t wait to come back!”

– Matt

“Great location, stylish house, clean heated pool, big garden and awesome host! We can’t ask for more. The house is equipped with everything you will need. We are two families with kids so we always rent house that has pool but this one is probably the cleanest pool we have through Airbnb. All three bedrooms are clean and spacious. Kitchen and washroom are fully equipped. Pamela and Jack also provide us tips around the town and super friendly and easy to deal with. This is way better than staying in any hotels on the island. We will definitely come back again.”

– Rachel

“Wonderful pool home escape! Great area, good value. Jack is available for anything you should need! Clarity should be provided that the owner’s separate living quarters is attached to the home. So he does have an access door into the home, in the bedroom hallway and there are shared walls between the bedrooms and jack’s space.”
