About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms with an amazing ocean front deck!

This amazing oceanfront home is the perfect getaway for families or friends. Situated in Nanoose Bay on Vancouver Island overlooking the Georgia Strait, this beautiful home is less than a 30 minute drive from both Parksville and Nanaimo. From the moment you arrive on the compound, this 0.34 acre waterfront retreat establishes that you have entered a world of your own.

The home has been refurbished with the latest in styles and amenities featuring 3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, wood burning fireplace, sauna, and a spacious modern kitchen and an incredible walk out basement.

From the deck there is an amazing view of Georgia Strait where you will feel the peace of the ocean air. With easy access to the beach you will have fun beachcombing, watching the sea life and resident eagles.

Why Rhonda Blair chose British Columbia

This property for us is both a primary and secondary home depending on the time of year. We love this property because we can go from the doorstep of our home in Calgary to the doorstep of this property within less than 4 hours by plane. It is a perfect location where we have all of the luxurious amenities and charm of a west coast beach home, without it being over populated in a tourist area. The popular tourist destinations are a short drive away. For us, it is an idilic location for rest and relaxation; a place to create family memories; a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've had a wonderful time; thanks for allowing us to visit your home.

Bought fish at the french street marina... i've shopped for fish all over the

globe... have found a new fav. We watched an otter play and dine for an hour

last night on the beach here... kayaked in the bay today to visit seals and sea

lions.



We've tried to treat this home as if it were ours (if i had a spare million and

the commute was a wee bit friendlier maybe...)... lived mostly in the kitchen

(as a food guy two thumbs up... really well appointed!!!).



A wonderful end to our time on Vancouver Island... Kate Wendy and I thank

you for the chance to stay here.

Excellent Relaxation even with kids

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in the summer of 2016 with our three young kids (4,2,6months) and wife's parents. We were extremely lucky with the weather and were able to sit out and watch the cruise ships go by every night. The view is seriously spectacular. It's an elevated position so you can see far and you can watch ships, sea life (sea lions, otters, bald eagles) or gaze at the mainland BC. We also had deer visit us everyday to eat the blackberries on the property. The deck easily fit all 7 of us with lots of room for kids to play.

Neighbourhood felt extremely quiet and safe. The property was clean and well kept. The pathway down to the water was a little dangerous for my two year old but fine if I held his hand. My boys could have spent the entire time playing with the rock crabs in the tide pools. We also really enjoyed cooking oysters on a bonfire overlooking the ocean at night.

We had a few requests from Rhonda which she handled immediately - like turning off the A/C which we don't like and fixing a drip in th fridge from the ice maker.

It's also within 30 minutes to amenities like Costco, Cabelas, fresh seafood stands, fruit stands,sandy beachs etc.

Would definitely not hesitate to return to this property.

Wonderful, Relaxing, Winter Getaway for Two

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking forward to a very relaxing, quiet winter getaway and this property more than delivered. Some places the pictures end up looking better than reality, but in this case the pictures don’t do this house enough justice. It’s a home that has been updated in a lot of places for aesthetics and function, and still retains its charm. We thoroughly enjoyed the spacious kitchen, master bath with the double shower heads and jets, sauna in the second bathroom on the main floor, and the amazing ocean views framed by the beautiful madrone tree outside. It was a lot of fun to watch all the marine mammals playing and swimming by (we spotted dozens of seals/sea lions, and a few otters). We were also able to get some delicious local farm fresh eggs, lamb chops, and sushi grade albacore from the owner recommended farm store. Thanks very much for the great home and we would definitely stay again!

SPECTACULAR!!!

  • 5 of 5

Where will you ever find anything better on Vancouver Island? Nowhere! What a house! What a view! The view alone is worth every penny! Beyond the view, the house and all of the parts (beds, kitchen, washer/dryer/grill/etc) is remarkably wonderful. We all slept well on the comfortable mattresses, the house was spotless, the kitchen equipment enabled us to cook a number of delicious meals which we ate on the deck that has an unbeatable and indescribably beautiful view! You are foolish if you opt to rent any other home on this island. This one rocks!

Would love to return

  • 5 of 5

Thank-you so much for the use of your lovely retreat in Canmore. I only wish we could have stayed much longer. We barely touched the trails, hikes and wonderful lakes in the area. Your place was warm and welcoming after being out in the Rockies. Loved the art work and decorating. The park pass was a real plus. Hope to come back soon!

Beautiful Location

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location , very quiet and private. Beautiful view off of the wide deck over looking the Strait of Georgia. Great to wake up to with a coffee in the mornings, and relax watching the sun go down in the evenings. House is a little dark but has cozy feel with plenty of room for a family or even 2. It is an older but renovated property. Access to the beach from the yard is a bit tricky as it is a rocky slope and slippery. A minor issue with some cleaning that the cleaners had missed but Rhonda is excellent to communicate with and responds quickly rectifying any concerns. Recommend for anyone wanting a relaxing and quiet getaway.
