About Wendy Dubois

I am a registered clinical counsellor in private practice located in Vancouver, BC, Canada. My husband owns his own business in carpet cleaning and flood restoration also located in Vancouver. Together we have two grown sons who are also in business.

Wendy Dubois purchased this house in 1992

Why Wendy Dubois chose Quadra Island

This property we bought off of my husband's parents while they were still living in it. His mother bought it as a surprise for her loving husband and surprised him with it. They used this initially as their summer vacation spot but in their latter years, they moved in and lived there until 2004.

What makes this house unique

This lovely home has a 180 degree span of the ocean on either side with mountains located far off into the distance. There is plenty of driftwood on the beach to satisfy any bomb-fire enthusiast such as myself as you can see from the picture.

cottage of relaxation

  • 4 of 5
What a wonderful place to relax. The view is just beautiful. We had such a great time in our week at the cottage. We would totally stay there again. Jeff dropped by and was more than hospitable. He gave us some great tips and information to make the most of our stay. We could have used some screens on the doors and windows though. We left them open to enjoy the wonderful sea air but then had to chase out the flying visitors that came in. I had my morning coffee in the sunroom every day, what a great space. The cottage and the Island was so peaceful and relaxing. The kids loved to go out during low tide and investigate what was under the rocks. I should say we all enjoyed it because the adults were out there too. Thank you Jeff and Wendy for letting us enjoy your cottage. We will be back some day.

Private and Peaceful

A wonderful place to relax featuring a great view of the islands with snow capped mountains in the background. Stunning sunrises and moon rises. There was a resident bald eagle perched on a rock in the ocean a few yards off the property every morning. Our dogs loved the trail that is walking distance down the road.Very nice, peaceful neighborhood. There is good internet access for keeping in touch with work. The house is charming and comfortable. Cannot wait to come back.

Driftwood Cottage, Quadra Island

  • 5 of 5
The view is as you see it on the main page of the Driftwood Cottage website – the ocean waves with Coast Mountains in the background. It was a 180º degree view up and down the coast. This location was appreciated by all of us. Even on overcast days the view was superb. That little sunroom just made the weekend! Having walking trails at the end of the street was also a great feature. It had a well-equipped kitchen. The house on the whole was comfortable. It also provided each of the 3 of us a separate bed to sleep in. The door locking mechanisms made things easy for us not having to meet up with someone to receive/give back keys

This is such a wonderful property! It is right on the beach, with a beautiful view! We had a group of 8 people, and between the two cabins we were very comfortable! Both cabins were very cozy and inviting. There was so much to do around the property including a beautiful trail right at the end of the road. We spent most of our time around a beach fire, and exploring the surroundings. I would recomend this place to anyone!!

Owner's Response: This restful get-a-way is just the place to unwind from life's stressors. If you are coming to enjoy some solitude, conversing with family and friends or a combination thereof, you will find that Driftwood Cottage is the place where great memories are made.
