Excellent gathering place for family and friends! We love to see generational families gathered here. Beautiful beach walks and star lit beach fires. The tides have been very high this season, hitting the edge of our property. Impressive storms have created incredible views, with lots of wave action. The tidal pools have been teeming with fish, crabs, starfish, etc. The sunroom is a cozy room to watch the sun rise and set, and the wild life activity on the water. Rain or shine, the sunroom gives you an amazing waterfront view of the ocean and its ever changing view. See herons, seals, fish jump, bald eagles, mallards, geese, bunnies, deer, and many more varieties. There is a fire pit outdoors, surrounded by lawns. There are four separate outdoor spaces created, allowing room for all to enjoy either the sun or shade.

It is possible that you may never leave the property as it is so tranquil with ever changing views of wildlife, tide action, beach combing.

Island born and raised, and an islander at heart, the best days for us are days we spend at the beach with family and friends.
Nola or Brad purchased this house in 2013
Its been our life long dream to live on the waters edge, we love the sound of the waves, and the antics of the seals and pups. It is ideally located in the heart of the island with access to all ammenities
We stood on the the seawall, an looked at the ocean vista and said to each other, 'this is it....'
Nola and Brad are awesome hosts! We enjoyed very much our 2-day weekend gateway at their wonderful house. The view is unbelievable and we had both days dinner at the backyard which we originally just planned for one day dinner. But the sunset view, the backyard setting, BBQ and the fire pit made us to decide not going out for dinner. Nola and Brad provided more then enough of supplies for us to use, anything that you can think of, they probably have it ready for you. We were even welcomed with a basket of snacks and bottle of wine! (Thank you, Nola & Brad!). The house is really clean and with many nice decorations.
The hot tub and sunroom are also exceptional, we enjoyed them very much!
The communication with Nola is super efficient. She always answered my call and text right away and replied emails promptly. The damage deposit was refunded right away when we arrived and Brad even met up with us early within short notice because we had to leave a bit early in the morning.
Thank you so much. We had a wonderful weekend gateway and family gathering.
Spending our 50th anniversary here was amazing. We used all the differant spaces, had an outside fire, used the inside wood fire, loved the kayaks, spent relax time in the sunroom,watching the ocean. The kitchen was so well stocked, we made many lovely family meals, and of course the cabin was a blessing to use . Would definitely recommend this rental. We hope to come again.
With no snow on the mountains this year, we thought we'd try something different this year. Our stay was fantastic. The property amenities were exactley as seen on the site. Brad and Nola were there to answer and assist us with all of our needs. Oysters abundant at low tide for dinner, and lots of clams to dig to keep the kids busy. Orcas passed by, the hot tub was great, and the unit had every condiment know to man. The cabin was perfect for my parents to stay in so they could sleep in and not be bothered by my early rising children. Great vacation!
7 of my closest friends and I embarked on a Vancouver Island retreat to bring in the New Year. We found ourselves in Qualicum Beach at Brad and Nola's rental property. It surpassed every reasonable expectation we had. Location was phenomenal, the view was unbeatable and the hospitality was next level. We spent most of our time, soaking in the hot-tub, cooking with a view of the ocean, watching hockey and exploring the area. Brad and Nola were great owners to rent from and we hope to be there soon in the future! Thank you for a great holiday getaway!
We had an amazing time staying at this vacation rental! Nola and Brad made us feel so welcome and helped us with any questions and concerns we had. I booked this rental for my boyfriends 30th birthday and it was great! Plenty of room for everyone to sleep and hangout for the rainy days. The view was wonderful, looking out at the sea lions,water and mountains was exactly what we wanted. I can't wait to book again!
Nola and Brad were such kind and gracious hosts who ensured that our week long stay at their lovely oceanside home was comfortable and relaxing. Their house was clean and well-stocked, and had many amenities, including a hot tub, kayaks, and a fire pit. The photos posted on this site give you but a glimpse of the beauty of their gorgeous property. We spent many hours in the sun room just watching the waves rolling in and out - We could never tire of that amazing view. There was also so much to see and do in and around the area. We particularly enjoyed taking in the majesty of Cathedral Grove, the peaceful atmosphere of the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre, the beauty of Butterfly World & Gardens, and all the happenings at the Mooberry Winery & Little Qualicum Cheeseworks. Literally right across the highway from the house is Island Scallops, which had the best fresh scallops we'd ever tasted. There are also some amazing artisans in the area whose studios were a pleasure to visit - Among our favourites were Cedar Moon Glass Art Studio & Gallery and Robert Held Art Glass. Although not as close by, but certainly worth the trip, was the little excursion we took out near Duncan to visit Pacific Northwest Raptors, an amazing facility that we always make a point of visiting whenever we come to the island.
Thank you, Nola and Brad, for sharing your beautiful home with us and for making our vacation so enjoyable!
