Port Owen Marina is such a great place to stay - our house was huge and had so much room for people. 5 could easily sleep here and the outside bbq area is so great - best sunset in a LONG time - although we were there in winter - the rooms are perfect! Cleaners everyday and such efficient service!... More

Visited Port Owen Marina in 2015, and it was just a breath of fresh air; people were friendly, atmosphere was laid-back, food was delectable, and the venue was very affordable and strategically located.

We rented a 3 bed 2 bath unit and enjoyed our stay tremendously. Charlene and her team works very hard to ensure that guests are kept happy. We enjoyed exploring the marina, berg river and birdlife by canoe, which is available to guests. The kids had loads of fun cycling around safely, playing put-put, and indoor games on coolish days....

The units are well equipped and maintained, comfortable and clean. We had a downstairs unit overlooking the water. There are plenty of facilities for kids like a great games room, canoes, pedal boats, mini golf and giant chess. There are 2 pools. Staff are more than competent and friendly. I visited via RCI.
