About France (aka The French Girl)
About twenty years ago when I was still living on the farm in Saskatchewan I suggested to my Dad that we should turn our farm into a vacation farm. He liked the idea but unfortunately due to change of life events that never happened. A few years later, I found myself living here on Vancouver Island, but operating a small vacation rental business stayed on my radar. A few years after arriving on the Island I met this charming little French Girl. I turned my available charm into high gear and eventually convinced her that I was a prime candidate to become her main squeeze. Two years after we bought a log house on an acre, 7 km west of Sooke. The place needed a lot of work inside and out. Since the summer of 2004 when we moved much of our spare time and money has gone into repair and rebuild. We are both self-employed so it has not always been an easy nut to crack. But each of us had the same vision of eventually turning our home into vacation guest home.?? After many years of talking and preparing us into buying their home and us dreaming of the day it would happen, it was Christmas Eve day (24 Dec) 2011 that our neighbor Angelo & Frances finally announce us they were ready to sell. We then sold some land I had committed myself to sell to make this dream of us come true. We officially started to rent July 2013. We named it Handsome Dan’s at otter Point. Handsome Dan is the French Girl’s pet name for me. France, but known by almost everyone as The French Girl is an accomplished artist and skilled craftsperson. She’ll not admit that though. You will see the unique work she does with concrete when you stay with us at our log home or our cottage in Port Renfrew. Her oil paintings of Handsome Dan hang proudly on the high walls of our home too. Like me the French Girl grew up in a small farming community. She is from North Central Quebec; an authentic Quebecois.
France (aka The French Girl) purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why France (aka The French Girl) chose Otter Point
When we purchase our neighbor's house, many people asked us why we choose to move out the Log home and not rent the other house instead. The answer is simple, after all the years living in it, and preparing it for the day it would become a vacation rental, we both agreed that the log home has much more character & charm and wanted to share it's rustic coziness with many people from all over the world.
What makes this Cottage unique
When Dan and I decided to purchase this house, we new that a lot of work would be needed to put this place ship shape. Being a home owner, we were able to express our artistic ability. We love this house as it is our creation, everything we made ourself, from the 17'foot stone fireplace (each stone was handmade and individually painted by me) along with the kitchen and the spiral staircase (this one our friend Didier made for us). We gave our heart, our time and our money to make it what it is today and plan to make many more beautiful water and garden features in the years to come on the one acre of land this house is sitting on.
