About Dr. Sherilene M. Chycoski

Arnie and I bought our beautiful home eight years ago and we love sharing our wonderful property with others including our friends, children, students, and grandchildren as well as folks on vacation or potential owners in the Nanoose area. This is our second home that we bought in Nanoose and we have been renting our properties since 1991 when we bought our first home on Dolphin Bay, Nanoose.

Dr. Sherilene M. Chycoski purchased this house in 2004

Why Dr. Sherilene M. Chycoski chose Nanoose Bay

The location of the beach house is situated on a private beach with neighbors who have owned their properties for generations. The beach is a combination of executive beachfront homes and cabins. We bought the home as it is one level with only a few steps up for easy access for seniors as well as for our guests.

What makes this house unique

The most unique feature is sitting in the glass studio and having the eagles fly over while you are sitting on the sofa bed and enjoying the cruise ships passing by at night over the cruise boat season. Lastly, the property has extensive gardens that need a lot of time and attention. Thanks goodness for our wonderful cleaning lady and team of gardeners.

FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5
Just a great , great setting, and gorgeous house. The pictures and description are bang on. The HUGE sunroom is just a special spot for everyone to gather, and read, play games or watch the ocean. The kitchen is huge and really well equipped, and wanting for nothing. Our 2 families ( 9 people) had loads of room for sleeping, hanging out, cooking and one person could actually play the piano, so she did for 4 days. Great place to launch kayaks right in front of the house, tour the bays,and look for starfish. At low tide everyone had fun wandering around the flats and seeing what was there. The owner was good enough to meet us there and explain all the workings of the house, the great kitchen, air conditioning and heating, and fireplace ( if needed). We bicycled into Parksville a couple of times and to Rathtrevor Beach as well. The road is narrow, but very doable on a bike. Lots of restaurants to choose from. Thanks and looking forward to going again.

We had 2 families stay. The owner was helpful in describing the area and all the home had to offer. We enjoyed beachcombing (being careful not to step on the varied seafloor wildlife) in low tide and kayaking the quiet bay in high tide. Our weather was mostly overcast so we were grateful for the large sunroom letting in all the light available. We were warned that the septic system may easily saturate, but we had no problem with 8 of us in the house. The beds are hard, but comfortable. The kitchen is large and well stocked. There are deck chairs, but no table for eating outside. It is close to Parksville and Rathtrevor beach if you want to see something different for a day or eat out. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to go back.

Owner's Response: We aim to accomodate all the needs of our guests and appreciate that the house met all your expectations. After purchasing $1,600 of all new deck furniture including a small side table and a Broil King BBQ at the beginning of August, we realized that our old outside plastic table that seats 6 that can be moved may not be large enough for bigger gatherings. We are in the process of buying an outside dinning table in addition to our two large kitchen tables inside and folding chairs. We appreciate that you were able to follow the septic instructions as we have a 500 galloon per day capacity and that it met your needs as we are in a rural location. Looking forward to your next stay.

Loved this place.. the setting is beautiful, the ocean is right there, you can sit on the deck and watch the tide come in and see the cruise ships go by. It was so quiet and relaxing, I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a perfect get away!
