SPECTACULAR SUNSET VIEWS FROM BONITO BEACH WATERFRONT COTTAGE!

Nanoose Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Pet-friendly! Open concept 2-bedroom - 2-bathroom 1760 ft2 oceanfront cottage

This open concept two-bedroom - two-bathroom 1760 ft2 waterfront cottage has just been painted and updated inside! It features 2 wraparound decks with unobstructed views of sunsets up the Strait of Georgia. It is located on a picturesque bay with rocky outcrops and a black sand & gravel beach; perfect for swimming, lounging, walking your dog or launching your kayaks. The beach access is just a short walk from the front door.

The cottage is about 30 years old – it has a casual vibe and a lot of character. The living spaces and furniture are designed for comfort and we encourage you to “put up your feet, sit back and relax” as you enjoy the ever-changing ocean views and hypnotic sounds of the water.

All of the living areas as well as the master bedroom have sweeping views across the Strait of Georgia and the coastal mountain range. The cottage has 2 fireplaces; one in the main floor great room, and the other in the den off the master bedroom. The kitchen is open to the living area, has a sit-up eating bar and is conveniently located by the main floor entry.

The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and is located on the lower level. It features floor to ceiling windows that face the ocean and open to let in the cool ocean breezes. The master also has a 3-piece ensuite bathroom and direct access to the lower deck.

The second bedroom has a double bed and is located on the main floor. It has 2 windows with views of the mature trees surrounding the property. It is adjacent to the main 4-piece bathroom.

As an added bonus, there is a cozy sleeping cabana with a double futon bed/lounger that is perched about 25 feet above the beach. It opens on to a private deck with amazing views of the beach, Strait of Georgia and coastal mountain range. (By the way – it is the perfect spot for sipping cold drinks and watching the sunset across the bay)!!

The cottage is fully equipped, from kitchen crockery, utensils and appliances, to bedding, linens and a full-sized laundry room – it even has an outdoor clothes line! There is a teak dining table for 4, a barbeque and plenty of seating on all the outdoor decks.

The living area includes a flat-screen TV and a small radio/CD player. There is seating for 4-6 at the dining room table. The cottage is also equipped with high-speed internet access.

The Bonito Beach Cottage is located on a quiet cul-de-sac, between Schooner Cove Marina and the Fairwinds Golf & Country Club. There are also many other golf courses within a 30-45 minute drive. A major grocery store and gas station are a 5-minute drive away. Parksville is about 15 minutes to the north, while Nanaimo is only 20 minutes south on Highway 19.

For those who like to hike and bike and just walk the dog, access to the 600 acre Fairwinds forest reserve is less than 1 km from your doorstep. There are many kilometers of trails, through the coastal Garry Oak forests with 2 small lakes and an abundance of wildlife.

Located between Schooner Cove Marina and the Fairwinds Golf/Country Club, this is the perfect base from which to enjoy your Vancouver Island vacation. Take day trips to Victoria, a 2 hour drive or Long Beach/Tofino - 2.5 hours away.

Some of the local attractions include

* Approx 2 km to Schooner Cove Marina and tennis courts.

* Approx 3 km to the award-winning Fairwinds Golf and Country Club.

* 10 -15 minutes to decadent spas at Tigh-na-mara and Pacific Shores Resorts

* 15 minutes to Rathtrevor Provincial Park & Beach; and 5 minutes more to sandy Parksville beach.

* Fresh, locally-caught seafood is available a short drive away at French Creek Marina.

* A few examples for short day excursions are: Cathedral Grove, Goats on the Roof at Coombs, Englishman River Falls, Qualicum Beach, Little Qualicum Falls, murals and live theatre in Chemainus.

PLEASE NOTE: The stairs down to the beach CANNOT BE USED AT THIS TIME as they are under construction. There is a public beach access about

50 m away from the cottage driveway. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Monthly rentals only: Nov 1 - Apr 30.

About Cathy Orban

We love to spend time outdoors - cycling, kayaking, skiing and backcountry camping. We both work as environmental consultants and travel throughout western Canada - but we love to come home to Nanoose Bay. We choose Nanoose Bay over 10 years ago because this place has it all! The Fairwinds trails are fantastic and the beaches are beautiful.

Cathy Orban purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Cathy Orban chose Nanoose Bay

Bonito Cres is one of the few streets in the area that has sunset views in the warm months. We wanted a cozy and private waterfront home with panoramic views that would be a place to unwind and listen to the wind and water. We also wanted to be able to launch our kayaks close to home. It took a few years - but we finally found it!

What makes this cottage unique

Privacy - Sunset Views - Sunlight all Day - Hypnotic Sounds of Wind & Waves - Eagles & Kingfishers - Seals in the Bay - A Sleeping Cabana!

My wife and I stayed at Bonito for a week in the late summer. We were instantly in love with the view! The sunsets are amazing here. The house is nice, seemed a little on the older side, but well kept and clean. The kitchen was fully stocked and everything worked well. Outside the house is also well kept, upper and lower decks are great to sit and listen to the nature all around. The location is also a nice thing if you like quiet. It's about 15 minutes to Parksville if you're looking to get out and about in town. The Rocking Horse Pub is about 5 minutes and is worth checking out for dinner. There's also all kinds of trails nearby with hiking and lakes, tons of deer in the area. The only bad part of the house was that the stairs down to the water were out of service, but you could access the water easy enough with a trail at the neighbors house. We kayaked from the nearby Schooner Cove Marina, there's all kinds of little islands to explore, with lots of seals and eagles to observe, we also got lucky and encountered a pod of Orca whales near Yeo Island! The owner was very helpful with giving info about the area, easy to work with, and thankfully allows dogs! I'd stay again.

Where eagles soar....

Enjoyed beautiful sunsets on the deck after leisurely days that included walking and cycling the many roads and trails in the Nanoose and Parksville area. Home and property are as described and well maintained. Perfect place to stay and enjoy or use as home base for fishing, kayaking, or exploring the Island.

Just as advertised!

We had a fantastic stay here. Nanoose Bay is in our opinion the best area to vacation in, central to most everything there is to do and see. The owners of this property are very helpful and easy to work with. We definitely will repeat our stay here in years to come.

Couple with a dog~!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Bonito Cottage was great. We were very happy to find a dog friendly place. Owners also live near by and were extremely welcoming and helpful. The place is very comfortable, everything is there, perfect location, easy access. Kitchen well equipped, great bbq, fireplace outside was amazing, we've enjoyed watching the fire and the stars that are so clear at the Nanoose bay. Location wise it was easy t go anywhere. We canoed at the near by lake, swam in the ocean, listened to local seals communicating with each other by smashing the water with their flippers. Our dog was delited to walk on the beach right under the house, play with the starfish and just hand out. There is a small cabana near the by the house, its so near to take a nap in it or sleep through the night with the soothing sound of the waves. Bedroom downstairs is awesome too, great views.
We've gone to the near by farm for veggies, fruit, local grassfed beef, crab and even tuna. Would recommend this place for couples, families, dogs. We were very comfortable and felt literally at home. All thanks to very lovely owners!
