ESCAPE AND RELAX IN COWICHAN BAY!

Cobble Hill House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2.5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Cowichan Bay was formed by the long standing presence of First Nations people, followed by an immigrant heritage that developed our cultural beginnings in forestry, fishing and farming industries.

Our community is a “slow food” community, painting and preserving glimmers of our cultural history. Today, we strive to protect the beauty and ecological integrity of these gifts of precious natural resources. Our community believes in the utilizing appropriate tools and practices for the protection of our land, air and water.

Cowichan Bay is a place for families, businesses, the young and old. Our commercial areas host a mix of businesses including consulting and design firms, medical offices, galleries, boat works, food processing facilities, cafes, ice cream shops all linked by off road trails and within close proximity to each other.

OUR HOUSE is in the hub of all the action within the Bay. We have a busy event calendar going on and urge you to come and experience the fun.

We are a family with three children who live nearby.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

We both attended the University of Victoria, and after working abroad in Zimbabwe and Colorado for many years, we decided that we missed the island and all it has to offer. Cowichan Bay is unique in that it allows us to walk or ride our bikes to all local amenities. We love the views from our house and the coziness of the community.

The sunsets are to die for..A glass of wine on the deck in the summer months and you will not want to leave..You can leave your car keys and your cell phone in your bag and not take them out for the duration of your stay...or you can do the opposite and efficiently run business affairs, away from the stresses of the city. Cowichan Bay is rural and by the sea, however it is still close enough to enjoy the fruits of Victoria, Duncan and Nanaimo..

Comfortable Home, great location!

  • 4 of 5
My cousin and I stayed here 4 nights over the Labor day holiday. We were able to do a lot because everything was so close or an easy drive away.

The house is as represented with a few changes to the furniture. Both bedrooms are equally roomy, each with it's own queen size bed, which were extremly comforable. Plenty of closet space for extended stays....and loads of hangers! There is patio furniture in both the backyard, front porch and also the upper balcony deck. The kitchen is equiped for light cooking, nothing too gourmet. Loved having the full size washer & dryer.

The owner, Danica, who lives just 2 doors down stopped by the first day with a sampling of fresh vegetables from her garden! She was happy to advise on nearby sites and activities, very friendly.

The house is just one block away from the marina so it's an easy walk down to the nearby restaurants which makes parking a breeze. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch deck for coffe and most evening meals.We were surpised how quiet the neighborhood was, even with the windows open to enjoy the cool weather!

We visited the Saturday morning Farmer's Market in nearby Duncan and purchased wonderful fresh vegetables which we prepared at the house. Duncan also has loads of totem poles scattered around the downtown, near the Farmer's Market,easy to do your own walking tour. We visted numerous wineries that were within a 30 minute or less drive and offer a variety of nice wines.

Our favorite excursion was the Whale Watching tour w/ Ocean Ecoventures which is located right in Cowichan Bay in the marina area, again just one block away. We took the 4:30 p.m. tour so were were still out on the water for a gorgeous sunset .......the whales put on an awesome "show"! The company provides insulated jumpsuits which keep you warm even when you are flying across the water.

I think this house is very comfortable and offers a good value. The location can't be beat!

A lovely hide-away

  • 5 of 5
We have just spent the most relaxing week at this charming cottage and really want to thank the owners
for being so hospitable. They were at our beck and call and we felt that they really cared that we were comfortable. It was a treat to return in the late afternoon after a very busy time exploring the region to the peace and quiet and complete privacy of the garden and then hop into the hot tub for a relaxing soak. We also enjoyed waking up in the morning to the glorious sunrises over the Cowichan Bay without having to move from our cosy bed. Next time we visit Vancouver Island we will certainly try to stay here
again!!!!!!!
