Overview

Lake Cowichan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Office, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Welcome to our Lake House

Lake Cowichan is the second largest body of fresh water on Vancouver Island, BC at over 30 km in length. The lake is located 20 minutes (31 kilometers) west of Duncan along Highway 18. The pristine blue waters and sun drenched beaches of Cowichan Lake offer water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, swimming, wind surfing and canoeing.

Our Lake House is located just 1 km outside of Youbou and offers you incredible lakefront living in this 3500 sq/ft five bedroom walkout.

Cowichan (Quw'utsun') means 'land warmed by the sun'.

In the Cowichan Valley rolling mountains, undulating rivers and pristine lakes come together to form the backdrop of the Cowichan; a place of incredible beauty, timeless traditions and tidal rhythms. Nestled between the bustling cities of Victoria to the South and Nanaimo to the North, the Cowichan Valley offers a wide choice of things to see and do throughout the year, from exploring the wine country trails, to unforgettable fishing, kayaking, hiking and golfing adventures.

Bedrooms

All of our beds have top quality plush mattresses to ensure a good nights sleep (new 2009).

Master bedroom has a king bed, walk in closet, iPod ready clock radio and master bathroom with double sinks. The master bedroom windows overlook the lake.

Two other bedrooms upstairs have queen beds and a shared full bathroom. There is also a sofabed in the office on the main floor.

There are two bedrooms in the basement, one with a queen bed and a fabulous view of the lake and one with two double/single bunk beds.

About The Owner

My wife Brenda and I love being near water. We fell in love with this beautiful area the first time we came here.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Lake Cowichan

After vacationing in the area we realized we had found a hidden gem. The water is so clean and clear and compared to most lakes in the summer there is lots of room for water sports. We have the feeling of being secluded but are only an hour from Victoria.

What makes this house unique

We love spending time on the dock and the beach while the kids play in the water.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a fabulous time staying at Tim & Brendas lovely house on Lake Cowichan. We were staying there with our friends so 9 of us lived very comfortably. The children enjoyed the canoe & rowing boatthat belonged to the house. They tried to catch fish off the deck while the adults enjoyed the sun. We had some great BBQs sitting around the firepit. We would like to thank Tim for allowing us to stay an extra 9 days while we were stuck due to the volcanic ash cloud. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to this house & can't wait to return to see it in the summer.

A home-away-from home

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 8 adults stayed in this beautiful, serene, spotless home the first week in September 2014. The open floor plan of the living room, kitchen and dining area allowed the entire family to be together at the same time. The kitchen has every cooking tool imaginable and the view of Cowichan Lake from most of the rooms and the deck is spectacular. There is a winery and hiking trails nearby and we did a day trip to Butchart Gardens. Our family highly recommends this home.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5
We were a family group (6 adults, 4 children and a baby) visiting Canada from the UK and we enjoyed the most wonderful stay on Lake Cowichan. The house is very well equipped and designed with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The lake and scenery are incredible and we spent most of our time swimming in the lake, jumping in off the diving board, going out in the boats provided and watching the wildlife and birds. There are plenty of activities on offer in the surrounding area and shopping and restaurants are not far away. We would love to return one day.

Suits our family perfectly

  • 5 of 5
We just completed a family vacation with 6 adults and 6 grandchildren. We had a wonderful time as we had chosen the right spot. The house was clean, modern and had just about every appliance you could think of. All the rooms were spacious, well-maintained and tastefully decorated. We were there in exceptionally hot weather and the air conditioning brought welcome relief. The bunk room was a big hit with the young cousins while the games room pool table was just what the adults wanted. The paddle boat was perfect for the kids when they weren’t jumping off the diving tower. It was hard to get them out of the water to have lunch. The water was warm for swimming and the daily afternoon breeze kept it from being too hot on the dock. The ample grocery store, a short drive away in Lake Cowichan village was perfect for provisioning. The owner of the house was readily available by cell phone to answer any questions and was most helpful. This was our first VRBO and truly exceeded our expectations. We’re hoping we can return next year.

Where do I start. This is what I would say and may I quote "Booking Right".The property was beautiful in its description and when we got there it did not disappoint. All the rooms were tastefully decorated, clean and all were given a real personal touch. There was lots of room for us all. We were a party of 11. The view of the water was breathtaking and you could see it from most rooms upstairs and down. This was my first time renting with VRBO and it was easy. The owner was very helpful in answering all my questions and concerns through email and in a timely fashion. We were close to a grocery store in the town of Cowichan so we could stock up on food and cooked up some delicious meals in the well equipped kitchen.It had everything from popcorn maker to waffle iron, and more importantly we never ran out of ice!! We fished on the lake from the dock,never caught anything this time...maybe next time, went canoeing, and swam. The water was clean and fresh. Our family loved the games that were available. Yahtzee!! Haven't played that in years. What a blast. If you are looking for a nice clean place to go for peace and quiet with the comforts of home and then some try this gorgeous home. It has it all. It was exactly what I wanted it to be. Thank you.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
I would recommend this house to other large families. There was plenty of room for our family reunion and plenty for the kids and adults to do. We would come here again if we were ever in the area. The house was wonderfully kept up and the sleeping accommodations were very comfortable for the large group. We did have some issues with hot water, with so many of us we had to space showers and take short showers. It was great to have use of the canoe, row and paddle boats! Thanks for the great stay!

Idyllic!!

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful & spacious home and grounds which perfectly met the needs of our group of 10 ...from a 1 yr. old to a grandpa. There was plenty to do both indoors and out from games, puzzles and pool table to marshmallow roasting, playing on the beach (not sand but small gravel) and enjoying the watercraft (a variety of lifejacket sizes were provided) .We had great luck catching trout right off the dock. The house was outfitted with any kitchen utensil and gadget that one could use. There is a very adequately stocked grocery store in the town of Lake Cowichan along with a "Tim Hortons"for those of us who cannot survive without. We also loved the family style restaurant "the doghouse" in duncan approx. 20-30 minutes away, Thankyou Tim and family for opening up your vacation home for others to enjoy; we would recommend it to anyone.
