Originally from Quadra Island, I bought this home so I could retire back to the coast and be near family. Because I can't be there as often as I would like I enjoy sharing it with others. The view and the quiet are so amazing , you never want to leave.
Marilyn purchased this cottage in 2004
The view - location , location, location. I grew up around the area on various islands and now live in Toronto. It is restorative.
This home is right on the beach for easy supervision of children. It is on a very quiet dead end road. The house is comfortable and has a well supplied kitchen. It is very close to all the amenities , ferry, stores , restaurants, liquor stores, but still feels very rural and quiet. The cabin is comfortable for a second couple or grandparents that need some quiet times. They can make their own morning coffee in their own small kitchen with a fridge, toaster oven , microwave and coffee maker. The outdoor shower also makes beach cleanup easy. I fell in love with the convenience of the location but still very quiet and rural. I love the view from the deck, dining room and living room. Once there I am reluctant to leave. It is very relaxing but there is always something to watch on the water. Boats, Orcas, Eagles, seals , crows, and much much more.
We had a wonderful week at your lovely cottage. I will always remember the awesome view facing us every day. Words can't describe it! The accomodation was superb, an A Plus!! Will miss my bed!!
Thanks again Marilyn
Majestic place with Fabulous weather. thanks for making our stay so comfortable. We will always remember this vacation.
