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.
If you are looking for a tranquil and breathtakingly beautiful getaway and to take a quiet break from the day to day City life, Quadra is the place to go. We visited mid October and unfortunately the rain joined us for most of our trip, however with all of the nature and surroundings we made the best of it. We enjoyed the scenery and the beautiful ocean views all around the Island and enjoyed beach combing along the shorelines. The cottage has all of the necessary amenities of home and is perfect for a family with teenage or small children staying in the main house with room for another couple to stay in the separate cottage allowing fo more private and comfortable sleeping quarters. We really enjoyed our time on Quadra Island and it is a wonderful place to kick back and take a quite break.
This cozy beach house, set in a lovely perennial garden, was everything we hoped for. The ocean view offered a constantly changing vista, and every morning there was something new to see on the beach. The sound of the waves lapping the beach was a soothing backdrop to our barbeques on the deck, reading, and walking the nearby nature trail. The extra cabin space provided privacy, while the living room, dining area and deck accommodated all of us easily. All the extra touches make this house warm and friendly. Thanks Marilyn for a lovely time.
We had an absolutely lovely and relaxing weekend at Marilyn's peaceful cottage on Wa Wa Kie, Quadra Island. It has a great set-up for chilling out for an extended weekend: three bedrooms in the main cottage plus a separate little cottage with en suite - right on a driftwood rocky beach with beautiful sea and mountain views. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped, with a big BBQ outside. There are lots of books, games and a wood burning stove in a spacious living room with cozy furniture. We spent our time relaxing in the living room, overlooking the garden, deck and beach to the Salish Sea - or wandering and beachcombing on the shore - looking at the seals, eagles, loons and other wildlife. It is beautifully quiet and dark at night. I highly recommend this place if you want to just "chill out" on island time and de-stress from city life. Our small children absolutely loved the beach; it was like a huge playground for them. Lots to see on Quadra too with Cape Mudge, Heriot Bay, "Q-Cove" and many hiking trails around the island woods and lakes.
This clean and well-maintained beach house was true to its description. It provided a restful retreat following a day of kayaking, hiking and whale-watching. I would recommend it to a friend or relative.
One note: Would not sleep 8 adults
The detached cabin and the largest bedroom in the home housed comfortable queen sized beds. The two twin beds in one bedroom were a little short and narrow but adequate. There was a very short but wider bed in the other bedroom that is not suitable for adults.
My Family of 6 adult children, plus my wife and stayed for 3 nights. Only complaint, not enough time. On Quadra everything slowed down forcing us to relax which was the plan. Views of the water and mountains never tires. Bonfires on the beach are spectacular as you watch the tide ebb and flow. The rock beach was great for searching for new treasures. The nearby nature trail, 150 meters down the road, made for a wonderful hike. Take berry containers in season. Our berry crumble was spectacular. Grocery stores nearby are well stocked. The inclusion of the bunkie makes for two 'master' bedroom arrangements, th ebunkie and one in the main home. Another room had two singles and a third kind of a twin that would suit one adult or two children. Plus a rollaway cot is available. We all had plenty of room. The main living room was both spacious and comfortable, oh, did I mention the view. If weather allows, eating on the deck was a pleasure. The rustic charm of the cottage was what we expected so no surprises. The kitchen is well stocked with pots/pans, plates...
If we are fortunate to return to Quadra we already know where we will call home.
