Discover the quiet serenity of Land's End Road.
Nestled alongside the ocean on a one-acre wooded lot, this home is perfect for romantic getaways, honeymoons, or a secluded and relaxing family vacation.
Wake up to morning sun and coffee on the deck and enjoy sunset barbecues. Stairs lead to a private beach with spectacular views. The spacious living room has a high-power telescope, perfect for viewing native sea mammals and passing boats.
Don't feel like cooking? Visit Deep Cove Chalet (and adjacent MUSE winery), or Bistro Suisse, our favorite, just minutes away in beautiful “Sidney by the Sea”. Day trips to the Gulf Islands depart from nearby Swartz Bay ferry terminal; a five-minute drive down scenic Lands End Road.
The world famous Empress Hotel, with its coveted English tradition of afternoon tea is typically twenty-five minutes by car, or a leisurely sixty minutes via double-decker bus.
Keywords: Waterfront House
Casual, elegant, roomy, pleasant overall, and total equipped to meet the renter's needs. The photos are accurate, but don't quite do justice to the window, view, and the deck. Our only complaint was not having enough time to act like tourists because we spent so much on the deck looking at the boats and wildlife. The was our first family reunion, and everybody wants to come back here next time.
This house was the best decision we made for our recent 10 day stay on Vancouver Island. We are a family of four and were visited for a time here by another family of three and all of us raved about this property. The view speaks for itself, you can't get better. The wildlife was spectacular from deer in the backyard to Bald eagles fishing off the backyard tree to golden eagles in the same tree to harbour seals and sea otters and the list goes on.
It is a superbly stocked house, the kitchen had everything we needed including a great selection of spices and other ingredients. There was laundry detergent and nearly all the basics were covered so check first before you go to the supermarket as you may need less than you think. Also there were plenty of plates and appliances and the BBQ worked well. Top notch bathrooms and linen. The furnishings are comfortable and inviting. Cannot speak highly enough of this property and we have travelled a great deal and stayed in an enormous number and types of accommodation. I am always nervous of owner leased properties and have been stung in the past but this place is top notch and it's owners are excellent to deal with. We hope to return.
We have rented through VRBO Numerous times & would highly recommend this fabulous location. The house is very spacious, comfortable & well equipped. The view is spectacular! This private oasis is amazing. We saw hummingbirds, seals, eagles, great blue herons, cormorants & a doe with fawns, all from the deck. The yard is beautiful: front & back. Feeling yourself unwind & peaceful is almost immediate. The private deck is situated to treat you to amazing views & relaxation. Access to the airport, ferries & Sidney is very convenient. We really enjoyed the Stonehouse Restaurant & Pub which was only a short drive away.
We would return to Lands End Retreat in a heartbeat.
Thank you Selwyn!
You have a wonderful house with a gorgeous setting. The staff was great and accommodating. We met Dave, the manager as well...very helpful. Your house is well stocked which makes a short stay very comfortable. Thanks for sharing your house.
This is a beautiful home with an amazing kitchen, beautiful view and all the amenities one could want. From the deck and through a telescope in the living room we saw porpoises, seals, sea otters and the resident rabbit. It is near to Muse winery, The Chalet ( a 5 star restaurant), the Victoria airport, and the beautuful city of Sidney which has several book stores, good restaurants and a wonderful aquarium.. It is 23-30 minutes north of Victoria.
Our only concern was the white carpet so sock feet are a necessity.
We would highly recommend this beautiful home as a vacation destination.
Sadly, our family had to depart this amazing property today after 5 wonderful days.
First off, if you're looking for a place to unwind that provides both spectacular scenery and seclusion, you'd be hard pressed to find better. It's difficult to leave the deck overlooking the gorgeous water and surrounding islands, which is where we ate every meal all week, and the only humanity we encountered during our stay were sailboats passing by a mile offshore. Our kids even slept until 8 every morning, which is a strong indicator of how utterly quiet the environment is.
The house was just perfect for the 6 of us - immaculate, cozy, and roomy, with all the amenities we could have wanted (the owners take excellent care of the house and grounds, and had just finished some upgrades to the decor and electronics right before we arrived, so it really feels brand new). Shopping and dining are less than 10 minutes away, and the proximity of the house to both the ferry terminal and the airport make access a breeze. And don't worry about visiting the local aquarium - at low tide, there's a personal aquarium waiting for you on the beach below. The only thing that got our kids in from it every day was the incoming tide.
I have no doubt that we will return to "The Retreat" in the near future. Next week??
