We love water sports of all kinds. Our teenage son is water-skier in photo. We enjoy swimming, fishing and boating and all kinds of watersports.

Gordon or Margaret purchased this house in 2011

We felt this was a rare opportunity to get this large lakefront property so close to town and all the amenities. The easy access to our hometown of Vancouver is a real benefit.

It has plenty of room to play soccer, bocce and volleyball and other sports on the large flat lawn.

Brannen is a warm lake and this property has a high outlook with lovely sunsets and nice ever changing sometimes breathtaking always tranquil views. Enjoy all kinds of wildlife viewing including eagles, numerous waterfowl, otters and more. The moment you walk in and see the view you decompress. At the same time it is close to Nanaimo Parkway access to all of the wonderful things Vancouver Island has to offer.

Island Fun

  • 5 of 5
We travelled from Ottawa to Vancouver Island for our vacation this year. We were fortunate enough to be able to rent this fantastic property. The house is incredible, extremely well provided. The house is located in a wonderful area very close to everything you would need. We had a decent sized group and nobody was running over each other. The lake is beautiful, we spent many hours enjoying the water, the canoe and the other water toys that were provided.

We were able to take a day trip to Cathedral Grove to see the old growth forests. We were able to take a day trip to spend some time at the Butchart Gardens. But, for the most part we enjoyed our time playing in the lake with the kids.

Gord, Margaret and Fran were wonderful!! Any time we had any silly question we could contact them and they would get back to us quite quickly.

We were very sad to be leaving to return home. We are very much hoping that we will be able to go back to the Island again.

An excellent choice in a wonderful area to get together with a group of friends or family.

When I first walked in I said to myself "I am going to be so sad to leave this place!!" The home is well cared for, nicely furnished, has wonderful views and ambiance. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with all the cooking needs you will need for almost any cooking need. The dock is large, (great for swimming) and the lake is a perfect size for skiing, kayaking and canoeing. This property is well represented in the overview by the owners, there are no disappointments. I spent a week here with the family; 7 adults (age 26-60) with 3 children (13,11 and 9) and we all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. You feel like you are very secluded but just a short drive from all your needs of food, dining, sightseeing, hiking and all that Vancouver Island has to offer.

Fantastic vacation home

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful house provided the perfect vacation spot for two families of eight people total. The main floor of the house was a great place for gathering and having meals together, while the lower floor was a perfect hangout area for our four teenagers. It's hard to describe how terrific the view was from the upper porch or the comfortable chairs on the dock. The lake was delightful for swimming (at least in August), and the starry sky was so relaxing. The house is very convenient to many great places and activities, but we mostly just enjoyed our time in the house together.

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5
A friend and I visited from the San Francisco Bay Area and stayed at the lake house for three nights primarily to use it as a base to explore the island. Though we did explore the island quite a bit, we ended up spending as much time at the lake house hanging out as we did away from it! We watched beautiful sunsets over the lake, enjoyed private canoe access, played horseshoes in the backyard sun, and grilled dinners on the upper patio. The accomodations inside were impeccable - great furnishing and a fantastic kitchen. We even had access to bikes and washer dryer for our clothes. Margaret was very attentive and accommodating to all of our needs while we were there. She is a fantastic host! We found all of our shopping and amenities needs within a very short drive of the house. It was truly one of the best holiday accommodations I have ever experienced. I Highly recommend this house and would definitely stay in it again if I returned to the island. Thanks again Margaret!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind comments. We take great pride in being able to provide everything that we wish for in our own rental experiences. We fell in love with the property and the location and the "at home" feeling we got from the house right from the start. It is nice to be able to share it and have people appreciate it. We hope you do return to the Island and stay with us again!

This is a perfect property to explore what Vancouver Island has to offer. Central to exploring Tofino, Parksville/Qualicum and Victoria. It has the feeling of being way out in the country but it is 5 minutes away from amenities such as Starbucks, Superstore, Costco, Home Depot, Homesense, Chapters and many other stores and restaurants. Woodgrove Mall is nearby with all its stores including state of the art movie theatres.

There is easy access to everything from this central location that is not far from from the University, Ice Centre, Aquatic Centre or Downtown Nanaimo.
