HILLCREST VACATION RENTAL VANCOUVER ISLAND

Mill Bay House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom Oceanview Vacation Rental, Mill Bay, Cowichan Valley, B.C. Canada

This lovely rental home is tucked away in the country, close to the ocean, Mill Bay Village and all that the Cowichan Valley has to offer. Surrounded by meadows and forest, it is an excellent place to enjoy a family vacation or a quiet restful getaway.

This beautiful house offers luxurious furnishings and is the perfect home base, with nearby Arbutus Ridge Golf & Country Club, Cowichan Valley Wineries, river trails offering hiking, biking and horseback riding, kayaking and fishing in the calm waters of Mill Bay or Cowichan Bay. The beach and rainforest nature trails are about a 10 minute stroll along the quiet country road.

This spacious house offers a large master bedroom with King bed and ensuite bathroom; a second King bedroom; Queen bedroom, and two separate bathrooms. The open plan layout features a living room with large windows opening out to the garden, fully equipped kitchen, dining room and kitchen table with doors opening out to the sunny patio and propane BBQ. There is also a separate games room, office and a large garage.

Cuddle by the cozy fireplace, or barbecue in the late evening sunshine and relax on the patio. The large yard and peaceful roads are ideal for children biking and playing. Go beach combing or enjoy all of the fun of the ocean. Rent a kayak and explore the Saanich Inlet or take a mountain bike and head off to the Galloping Goose Trail (part of the Trans Canada Trail). Tour the local boutique wineries, shops and markets and enjoy fresh local produce.

Many exciting adventures can also be found slightly farther afield... Cruise across the inlet on the Mill Bay Ferry to Brentwood Bay (resort, marina & restaurant), then visit the impressive Butchart Gardens and watch the fireworks show (Saturday evenings during the summer).

Be sure to explore the bustling harbour city of Victoria, a 40 minute drive south from the villa. Surrounded by ocean and forests, there are amazing hiking opportunities (stop at Goldstream Park for lush trails, waterfalls and the Goldstream River, a popular spot to watch the Fall salmon run.)

Head to Victoria's Inner Harbour for whale watching adventures, fishing trips and float plane flights! Visit the Royal BC Museum, Parliament Buildings, historic Empress Hotel, Miniature World, the Bug Zoo or go on a horse-drawn carriage ride. The beaches and breakwater along Dallas Road are a lovely walk through Beacon Hill Park. With its bountiful cafes, restaurants, boutique shops, antique stores, historic buildings and beautiful views- Victoria has something for everyone!

After a fun day sightseeing look forward to relaxing in this peaceful location as the sun sets over the hills.

Great Destination for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5
We have a large family and have been coming to Hillcrest in Mill Bay for the past 6 years. The house is very well kept and is very spacious. The property is very large, beautiful and private. Even the dog run is big! While you may have to drive to the beach, there is a cove right down the road for some great beachcombing. Organic farms surround you. Great blackberry, plum, apple and blueberry picking nearby. Very central location to get to the other Islands. You won't be disappointed!

fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5
I have to tell you we had a wonderful stay. The house was above expectations, absolutely spacious, great for large families, reunions, get togethers. The view spectacular and the deer kept us company in the yard morning til dusk. It is aways though to a beach, would not reccommmend walking. The area held so much to do, Cowichan Bay quaint and resturants right on the harbor, best reccommended Rock Cod Cafe there. Service good and food especially the fish and chips out of this world. Duncan was marvelous, Farmers markets great and we went into a little resturant in town and had lunch, Food superb, yet alas can't remember the name of it. The people on the Island were absolutely great, friendly, helpful, can't say enough about them and you need to take a trip to Sidney, but use the Mill Bay ferry and back, took it over many times and well worth it. Beacon Landing in Sidney is a fantastic resturant well worth it, great service and even better food. Would I come back you betcha. The view, deers and quietness of this house is amazing and allows you to relax and become stress free from everyday life. The company dealing with this property did an excellent job and well worth booking through again.

Beautiful Scenery & Peaceful too

Beautiful Scenery & Peaceful too

The house was much more spacious then the photos showed. Definitely with 3 bedroom and 3 baths with an oversized living room, family room at other end of house, large utility room and a home office room this house was very accomadating for a family reunion, friends gathering, etc. We spent most of our time out on the patio along with the neighboring deer that came into the yard. The on line description was accurate, but the beach is a hike from the house.
The property was very clean and was well maintained. The service we rented through was also good. Yes, I would definitely recommend it. I think I might like to rent again during the "crush" season at the local wineries. I was surprised how many there were.
Just riding the Brentwood Bay to Mill Bay ferry was fun along with the ferries to the other Gulf Islands. Most of all this place provided a great place to relax.
Beacon Landing resturant at the Sydney harbor was excellent and we ate there several times. Also and I hope I have the name right, Rock Cod at Cowinish (sp?) Bay was great for Fish and Chips. We had a horrible experience at the Pioneer Resturant which is between Mill Bay and Duncan and there were no satisfied customers the day we were there for lunch. We waited almost an hour for the lunch to come out of the kitchen and they weren't even busy that day.
The Farmers Market in Duncan (old town area) was fun, though we were told the one north of Duncan had more veggies.

Located in the beautiful Cowichan Valley area of Vancouver Island, Mill Bay is at the south end of what is becoming well known as a wine growing area with balmy temperatures and ocean breezes. Approximately a thirty minute drive north of Victoria, BC's capital city, Mill Bay is also a short and scenic ferry ride from Brentwood Bay, home of world famous Butchart Gardens. Calm waters are a feature of this sunny and warm part of the island. From rowing to salmon fishing, hiking to mountain biking, and picnics to wine tours there is a vast number of interesting things to see and do.
