Summer Day Beach House is fully equipped and beautifully furnished. Dim the lights and relax in front of a large Panasonic HD TV and the fireplace, or listen to your favourite music throughout the house on the built-in Russound audio system. Enjoy soft towels and a luxurious walk-in shower with two shower heads in one bathroom, or a relaxing bathtub in the second bathroom. Both bathrooms have granite counter tops and heated marble floors. Curl up in one of three bedrooms (two downstairs, one upstairs) on high quality linens.
After your morning coffee, walk on the 500 feet of private beachfront, or beach comb along miles of undisturbed beach and see deer, bald eagles and the rare Qualicum white raven. Enjoy your lunch in the provided picnic basket at the clubhouse where you may use the swimming pool, separate adult and children whirlpools, exercise room, party room and pool table. At the end of the day relax at the beach picnic tables or around the fire pit located by the beach as you watch the Alaska cruise ships pass between you, Lasqueti and Texada Islands.
Over the next days you can golf at one of six local golf courses, or enjoy sport fishing at Deep Bay. Visit the pub and fish market at French Creek, where you can also take the passenger ferry to Lasqueti Island. Baynes Sound offers bird watching. Horseback riding is nearby.

This was truly a home away from home that exceeded our expectations in every category. What a gem!
We selected this rental based on the location and advertised information. It did not disappoint. The owners, Jim and Roszita, responded promptly to our inquiry and they remained available throughout the rental. The unit is tastefully decorated and very well equipped, making us feel right at home from the very first day. We enjoyed the amenities and the comfortable surroundings. We did a lot of sightseeing in a number of communities and attractions up and down the coast. We enjoy shopping and found a great variety of well stocked and unique stores that exceeded our expectations. This rental was well priced and not lacking in any way. It is a true "gem" thanks to the owners, Jim and Roszita.
Terry and Kathy. A sincere thank you for your review. It was a real pleasure to have you both as our guests and to actually meet you in person. We are pleased that you found the cottage comfortable and with all the amenities available able to meet all your requirements. Guests such as yourselves is a real treat and we are hopeful that we will have the opportunity to see you again in the near future. Take care and safe travels. Sincerely Jim and Roszita
We stayed for four weeks at this beautiful cottage. It was the best stock VRBO that we have ever stayed in, making the basics I had packed based on previous experiences for our stay, completely unnecessary. The location allowed Mike the access to the beach for his artistic endeavours he desired. The peace and quiet was only interrupted by the occasional sounds of barking sea lions in the distance. The owners and the people made sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable - we felt that if we had any problems we had someone was there to help. Thanks for our four week “home”.
Bev and Mike.
Absolutely perfect in everyway!!!!
This was my first time using VRBO and I must say that the entire experience was absolutely perfect. From the initial booking of our stay right to the end, the owners James and Roszita were accommodating in every way possible.
The Beach house is absolutely stunning, very clean and well maintained. The finishes in the home are very high end and the home was equipped with even more items than our own home. The location was exactly what we were looking for. We had our 2 young children with us and wanted a little more of a quieter country feel since we come from a large city. Unfortunately we timed our trip a little too early in the season to be able to take advantage of the pool on the property. The home is a quick short drive to Parksville which has all the amenities anyone would need. Be sure to visit Lefty's for lunch or dinner as well the Bread & Honey Food Co.
Overall I wouldn't have any choice but to rate this entire experience and property a 10 out of 10. I wouldn't hesitate at recommending this property to anyone and we will forsurely be back. Thank you James and Roszita for making our stay just perfect.
Joel We are so pleased we met all your expectations during your special stay at our cottage. Taking the time to write a review is important to us and appreciate your honesty and efforts. The cottage was in great shape upon your departure. We sincerely hope that we will see you and your family again in the very near future, hopefully for a longer period so that you may have the opportunity to explore more of our lovely area. Until then do take care.
Sincerely Jim and Roszita
One of the nicest places on the island. Absolutely gorgeous cottage with everything you could need. Although we spent very little time at the cottage due to day trips, our time there at the end of each day was very relaxing. The second TV room was great for finding your own space at the end of a long day. There is also a community center just steps away with tv, exercise room and pool table that was fun. Ocean is very close although the beach is not great for walking as the beach is covered in rocks. You can expect to see sea lions and maybe even a whale if you are lucky. We have nothing but good things to say and would definitely stay here again!

Awesome place to spend time with family. Cottage had everything to make our stay memorable
Great place in the Qualicum area. Our cottage had everything we needed and more. From a well equipped kitchen to a welcoming patio area with comfortable seating and fire feature. A must stay for a couples retreat or a family vacation. The pool and hot tub always a added bonus.
We thank you for your review. It was our pleasure to have your family as our guests and we are pleased you enjoyed many memorable moments and found the cottage comfortable. Finally, we wish to express our sincere gratitude for leaving the cottage in such immaculate condition. We are hopeful that we are able to accommodate you again in the future ..
