STUNNING OCEAN VIEW FROM YOUR PRIVATE HOT TUB, QUALICUM BAY

Bowser House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The location of this stunning home cannot be believed. Located right on a long sandy beach, 25 feet from high tide, with views of Hornby, Texada, and Lasquiti Islands. Great for a walk in bare feet while enjoying the salt air or taking it all in from the new hot tub. Or, you could get out your fishing rod and enjoy fishing on what is arguably the best fishing beach in the area. Arrowsmith Golf Course is five minutes away and we provide discount tickets on request, $25 each (reg $37) for 18 holes. Just 200 meters away is a pub with food and live music as well as another restaurant. An easy walk, no need to drive after enjoying a cool one.

The home is luxurious and modern, having just been totally renovated. With an open floor plan, the front of the house has floor to glass windows that allow you to see the ocean from anywhere in the living room, dining room or kitchen. Relax and enjoy the ocean, whatever the weather, from the cozy living room or while having breakfast at the dining room table.

The large, fully appointed gourmet kitchen features extensive granite countertops and a state of the art induction stove with convection oven. There is also a new propane BBQ on the large deck. The master bedroom features a king size bed and a newly renovated ensuite with 2 sinks, a separate shower and a soaker tub. The second bedroom is roomy and features a queen size bed. All beds have new quality linens, pillows and towels.

This house has all the comforts of home including high speed internet, 40 inch tv with surround sound connected to cable, DVD player, stereo, washer/dryer, air-tight wood fireplace insert.

Relax on the comfy furniture on the large deck. Attached to the deck is a hot tub that seats up to six people comfortably. It’s a great location to sit entranced by the waves lapping on the beach or the stars overhead at night.

There is so much to do – walk on the beach, watch the wildlife which includes seals, sea lions and eagles, go for a swim, or go fishing. Between Nile Creek and Big Qualicum River, this is one of the best fishing beaches on the coast. There are numerous golf courses within 30 minutes, including Arrowsmith and Memorial Golf Courses.

Great seafood abounds in this area and you can easily purchase fresh oysters from Fanny Bay Oysters or fresh scallops from Island Scallops. Locally caught fish are available at many stores. In the summer, there are wonderful farmer’s markets at Courtenay, Qualicum Beach and Coombs where you can buy amazing fresh produce in a unique atmosphere.

There are many parks within 1 hours drive including: Horne Lake Provincial Park, Englishman Falls Provincial Park, Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park, Milner Gardens, Mount Washington and Cathedral Grove Provincial Park with its ancient trees.

Your days here surrounded by the ocean, forests and magnificent scenery will leave you with outstanding memories for you and your family.

For our clientele with allergies we have a no smoking and no pet policy.

Keywords: Luxurious, newly renovated home with stunning vews of Georgia Strait from the living room to the kitchen or in the hot tub on the large well furnished deck. Walk-on sandy beach just 25 feet away.

Amazing Location and Home!!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented properties off of VRBO for 6 years running and this property, by far, was the best we have experienced. The photos accurately depict the home and the beach. Everything was as promised and in wonderful condition. The property has been recently renovated and most aspects of the home are new and everything is in great shape. The bed was super comfortable and the amenities (TV, internet etc.) were wonderful. Many properties say beach front but often the access to the beach involves steep inclines, climbing over large rocks and requires someone to be extremely agile to get down to the beach. The access to the beach is easy and in low tide, there is a great sandy beach area to enjoy.

Everything was very clean and there were lots of dishes and cookware options. The view was amazing and sitting on the deck made you forget everything but the ocean in front of you. The hot tub is large and clean and a wonderfully soothing way to start or end the day.

The owners obviously take pride in their home and provide a great manual giving you all the information you need to stay in their beautiful house. All of our questions were answered when making the reservation and there was no issues in making payment or gaining access to the home.

I would recommend this property to anyone interested in staying in the Qualicum area. It is a short drive to Bowser or Qualicum Beach where there are great restaurants and fun shopping and there are a couple of restaurants within walking distance as well. We will most likely be renting this property again. 5 stars for certain!

WOW!!!

I am a writer by profession but this home leaves me lost for words. Stunning. Incredible. The best vacation home we've ever rented (and we've travelled a lot). What you will enjoy: An expansive view of the ocean from almost every room. The chance to soak in a hot tub while watching bald eagles, seals and hummingbirds. Beachcombing from your doorstep. Modern furnishings and an incredible kitchen. A short drive to lots of tourist attractions, including the family-friendly Parksville and incomparable Cathedral Grove.

One of our best vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5
The moment you open the door to this beautiful beach house you will be amazed. It is tastefully appointed with art, furniture and has all the comforts of home. Also, it is very clean and well maintained. Owners have left a great binder with all the instructions for the appliances, hot tub and many other details.The kitchen is outstanding! As a couple who loves to cook we enjoyed all the modern appliances it had to offer and its expansiveness. The views of the ocean from all rooms beach side of the home are beautiful. We enjoyed the morning sunrises and the changing colours of the ocean and sky as the sun set.
Walks every morning during low tide provided plenty of photo opportunities of beach life; Star fish, sand dollars, crabs and birds! The level of comfort from beds to bathrooms exceeded our exceptations.
Evening soaks in the hot tub where the perfect way to end a day of touring the island. We visited Catherdal Grove, Port Alberni, Comox and Campbell River. Great shopping in Qualicum Beach or Parksville.
The week we rented, the lower rental unit was unoccupied. I would & have told others about how much we liked the place and would rent it again if returning to the area.

Beautiful home, fantastic view, great location

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 2 year old, and I could not have enjoyed our vacation at this home in Qualicum Bay more. From the moment I walked in the door I relaxed right away; the view of the water, listening to the waves, and smelling the salty sea air puts one immediately in "vacation mode."

The house is exactly what the listing described and even more. It was very recently redone and is immaculately clean. A number of the features are listed in the posting but there are also dimmer lights in every room, a beautifully landscaped front yard, and an incredibly comfortable king-sized bed. I'm very picky when it comes to beds, and I slept great the whole week. It was wonderful to be able to prepare a dinner in the kitchen or BBQ, enjoy the scenery with the windows open, relax on the deck and in the hot tub, and then sleep so well.

The owners were very helpful in answering questions and were more than accommodating when it came to some issues with mail delivery. We unintentionally arrived a bit early and they graciously showed us around the home and let us in on the best spots to go for groceries and lunch.

One thing that surprised us was the beach right outside the house. My husband said it best when he said, "It's alive." Being from Oregon we have beautiful beaches, but this was really special. Our daughter was delighted every day seeing crabs, sand dollars, starfish, tiny herring, jellyfish, hermit crabs, sea otter every evening, and even bald eagles swooping down for a fish!

We could have filled more than a week visiting other spots in the area. We especially enjoyed hiking around Englishman River Falls, Cathedral Grove, Rathtrevor Beach, and Little Qualicum Falls. We missed out on Horne Lake Caves because children must be 5 years old to visit, but we hear it is a must-see. Perhaps when we return one day we can stay at this comfortable, relaxing home again and explore more of this beautiful area.
