Hello, I'm Ros! Originally from Scotland, my husband and I moved with our children to Vancouver Island in Summer 2015. We love Island Life and are continually amazed and surprised at the breathtaking scenery and the abundance of wildlife. There are so many gems to discover locally and with an active family; we knew instantly that Qualicum was the perfect place for us to raise our family.
Why Ros chose Qualicum Beach
Located just 12 minutes north from Qualicum Town, our cottage is situated exactly half-way between Nanaimo and Courtenay in the North Qualicum area. The cottage serves as the perfect base for travellers who wish to explore. Lots to do and see - walking/biking trails, golfing, fishing, wildlife, beach, etc. Close to Horne Lake and Spider Lake for idyllic days out, or less than a 45 minutes drive to ski at Mount Washington. Located in a semi-rural area, close to beach - a vehicle is necessary for this area. I'm happy to recommend car rental companies if required.
What makes this Cottage unique
Built in 1949, this cottage has retained it charm over the years. In between guests, we will be slowly improving the garden area and hope to turn this special property into an idyllic oasis for guests to enjoy.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Thank you for making our stay so nice.
lndeed a Charming Cottage
The cottage was immaculate, "beachy," and very quiet. Owners were very kind and gave good tips on the area. All amenities provided (area pamphlets; books for kids and adults; kitchen and laundry appliances; TV; sunroom; deck; beach toys, etc.) were very useful.
A bit of a drive from our beach destinations, but still convenient. We will definitely recommend to our friends and family. Thank you for a fantastic stay.
Perfect Place to Unwind
Cute, clean cottage with everything you need. Owners are super. Bunnies and deer on grounds are fun to watch. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Had a good stay. Very clean place, very helpful owners.
Exceeded our expectations!
Everything about our stay was more than we could have hoped for! The owners are super friendly and the kind you'd love to have over for tea (next time, for sure!). Located near Qualicum Bay, the home is spacious, generously equipped in every way, and super comfortable! Easy access to local attractions. Highly recommended. Thank you for a lovely stay. We'll definitely be back!!
This place is a very good deal! Everything is new, clean and very private. We loved staying here. Highly recommend.
Located in the North Qualicum area, this property is around a 15 minute drive from Qualicum Town. The property is located in a semi-rural location, on the Old Island Hwy (the coastal road) with lots of trails close-by.
Qualicum Fish Hatchery, Horne Lake and Spider Lake are all within a short drive from property.
There is public beach access within 800 metres from the Cottage.
Located halfway between Nanaimo and Courtenay, the Cottage is ideal for exploring the Mid-Island and beyond.
