Arnie and I bought our beautiful home eight years ago and we love sharing our wonderful property with others including our friends, children, students, and grandchildren as well as folks on vacation or potential owners in the Nanoose area. This is our second home that we bought in Nanoose and we have been renting our properties since 1991 when we bought our first home on Dolphin Bay, Nanoose.
Dr. Sherilene M. Chycoski purchased this house in 2004
The location of the beach house is situated on a private beach with neighbors who have owned their properties for generations. The beach is a combination of executive beachfront homes and cabins. We bought the home as it is one level with only a few steps up for easy access for seniors as well as for our guests.
The most unique feature is sitting in the glass studio and having the eagles fly over while you are sitting on the sofa bed and enjoying the cruise ships passing by at night over the cruise boat season. Lastly, the property has extensive gardens that need a lot of time and attention. Thanks goodness for our wonderful cleaning lady and team of gardeners.
This is an amazing property. Large house with very flexible owner who communicates well with her guests. The property was exactly as expected. Some issues with the septic system, but this was communicated in advance. Not a major issue. The Oven did not work well. However, this was not a major issue and am sure the owner is working on getting this fixed. Specialized oven and difficult to find repair people for it. Beds were comfortable and large living room accommodated us perfectly. Thanks Sher for the use of your home!
10 adults 2 small children. Room for everyone. Great great location and ocean view. Large deck and kitchen and living room. Not crowded. Loved that there was no tv in the main areas!! Used the water toys and kayaks. Need water shoes for beach. Kitchen big enoughthatmany people could help cook at same time. Close to many happening places and tourist things. Spa 10 mins away.
Cons: oven not working Washer and dryer worked but not well. BBQ out of propane when we arrived. Bedding old and worn but useable. Furniture old and worn but again useable. Reminded me of our summer lake cabin where items worked but was all the old stuff from home. Although again very big and spacious main living areas.
We would rent again because it worked for our large group and the location was awesome for us. But I would hope some repairs would be made ( or general upkeep).
Several families can stay and relax in this beachfront home. Good swimming, beachcombing, sea kayaking(kayaks and lifejackets are provided), sheltered deck for tanning and relaxing, bright livingroom for reading, napping, visiting. The kitchen appliances need a little maintenance but we found all that we needed to prepare meals and keep snacks handy. We invited our adult children, their significant others and my 86 year old mother to stay and we all had a great time.
Fabulous house for a big family and a wonderful location. We had a great time cooking in the spacious kitchen, kayaking and walking the beach at low tide. For the 20 something's plenty of hiking and adventure close by. Homeowner made us feel very welcome and plenty of room and beds for everyone to have their privacy and babies to have quiet nap time.
Just a great , great setting, and gorgeous house. The pictures and description are bang on. The HUGE sunroom is just a special spot for everyone to gather, and read, play games or watch the ocean. The kitchen is huge and really well equipped, and wanting for nothing. Our 2 families ( 9 people) had loads of room for sleeping, hanging out, cooking and one person could actually play the piano, so she did for 4 days. Great place to launch kayaks right in front of the house, tour the bays,and look for starfish. At low tide everyone had fun wandering around the flats and seeing what was there. The owner was good enough to meet us there and explain all the workings of the house, the great kitchen, air conditioning and heating, and fireplace ( if needed). We bicycled into Parksville a couple of times and to Rathtrevor Beach as well. The road is narrow, but very doable on a bike. Lots of restaurants to choose from. Thanks and looking forward to going again.
We had 2 families stay. The owner was helpful in describing the area and all the home had to offer. We enjoyed beachcombing (being careful not to step on the varied seafloor wildlife) in low tide and kayaking the quiet bay in high tide. Our weather was mostly overcast so we were grateful for the large sunroom letting in all the light available. We were warned that the septic system may easily saturate, but we had no problem with 8 of us in the house. The beds are hard, but comfortable. The kitchen is large and well stocked. There are deck chairs, but no table for eating outside. It is close to Parksville and Rathtrevor beach if you want to see something different for a day or eat out. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to go back.
