Thinking of Relocating?
This is a perfect home for a couple or family who are planning a move to the island. Make this your home while taking your time finding the right home and neighbourhood for you. BC has a property transfer tax that makes purchasing the wrong home and then having to sell and repurchase a very expensive mistake. Immerse yourself in island life while getting the 'lay of the land' and making smart decisions the first time!
Fed up with snow and cold?
If you are fed up with snowy winters, the health hazards associated with icy sidewalks and roads, and are not comfortable taking chances with the health care associated with travel to Arizona, California or Mexico ... this may be a great solution for you. This is Canada's warmest climate and has amazing lush greenery year round. Living here in the winter is nothing less than wonderful.
Why Choose Deep Cove Retreat?: This property has operated as a successful, vacation rental, continuously since Dec. 2006. It was purchased and furnished for this express purpose. No 'hand me down thrift store' items here. All top of the line furnishings, beautifully arranged and presented by the owner who is a professional decorator. We keep everything in 'as new condition' and carefully supervise the cleaners to make sure the home is immaculate when you arrive. We find as a result, that every guest treats the home with respect. We've had guests say they thought the home had never been lived in! Every little detail has been planned with a view to providing the ultimate vacation experience. Original art, espresso machine, high end linens, fluffy housecoats, crystal clear hot tub, outdoor propane fireplace, current reading material, fresh flowers and guest welcome basket with local goodies. All in a great location with easy access to beaches, wineries, golf, Butchart Gardens, Spas, Sidney and Victoria.
Who Would Enjoy This Property?: In the summer this is the perfect family holiday! Kids and teens alike find lots to love in the way of island activity.
Extended families converge from different parts of the country and meet, reconnect and recharge together. Often our home is used as a great home base for families with events on the island such as weddings, special birthdays, anniversaries, or reunions. In the winter this home tends to be occupied by couples or families who are relocating to the island. This is a great home base that allows you to get the kids settled in school, start to get the lay of the land, figure out where to purchase or build and then move only the furniture that will work in your new home. Saves tons of money in the long run. Snowbirds also love to stay here and become part of the community. Discounted rates are available if you are only need double occupancy and are OK with using only the main floor. Then if family or friends come visit , pay a daily rate to add the second floor.
What's Nearby?: Beautiful Sidney by the Sea is a lovely seaside town with unique shops, galleries, restaurants, coffee shops and tons of used bookstores (Canada's only booktown!). But, don't let this small town atmosphere fool you, the Mary Winspear Centre hosts world class music, theater and art events. Haven, Ocean Palm and Brentwood Bay Spas are world class, the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre is an aquarium that rates among the world's top aquariums. Don't forget the world renowned Butchart Gardens, with fireworks and musical events in the summer and wonderful wonderland lights in the winter. Golfing, eco-adventures, beaches, winery tours, on and on I could go! Victoria is a 20 minute drive up the Pat Bay Highway and has recently been named by Trip Advisor as the Best Travel Destination in Canada and in fact 24th in the World.
