About the property

Peaceful, Serene, Forest, Ocean-Front

Architectural Designed home is situated on 10 -acres of private property. Take advantage of the location, the breath-taking view of the ocean, surrounded by tall trees will take your breathe away. ! Our friends say it has the look and feel of a California beach house.

Our private Estate, is surrounded by beautiful trees, plants, and best of all the ocean is just steps away. There are two bedrooms, with two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, washer dryer, barbeque, and two private amazing decks for you to enjoy and relax.

This is a place you will want to return to . We, as a family, still come over to enjoy the peaceful surroundings and to rejuvenate.

Historical Artisan towns, of Ladysmith and Chemainus are 5 minute drive away. Or take a gorgeous scenic ferry ride to Thetis or Saltspring Island. Nanaimo is just a 30 minute drive away, and Victoria 1 hr. and 10 min. Victoria our capital city, is just a beautiful city, and make sure you take the time to go Whale Watching from Fisher-man's Wharf!

Take some time for hiking, walking, bird-watching, beach combing, kayaking (rentals at Transfer Beach-Ladysmith), golfing, or for those daring to bungee jump or do the ziplines in Nanaimo (15 min. drive).

The pictures I have uploaded are from the fall, and we promise to put some summer pictures up by the end of the month.

Due to allergies, we are unable to accept pets. Additionally, this is a non-smoking property.

About Jasmine Gill

My Father bought this amazing 11-acre parcel of property for his family to enjoy because of his incredible love of nature and the outdoors. Each

summer, he brought my Mother, Brother and I, on his 26 foot boat from Vancouver to Vancouver Island. My father sailed the seas, while we sat back and enjoyed every moment to our final destination, our cabin!

I have enjoyed sharing this property with my son, during his younger years. We continue to enjoy our property, however would like to share this remarkable, special place with you.

Jasmine Gill purchased this house in 1967

Why Jasmine Gill chose Vancouver Island

My father purchased this property in 1967 because he has always loved the outdoors and nature. He wanted to share the beauty of the island with his children and grandchildren. Our original cabin, built in 1928, by two men who were called to fight in WWII, still sits below our new house.

What makes this house unique

It's peaceful, and serene. Large viewing windows in living room and master bedroom. Two decks, one which leads from the family room to the outside, the other is huge deck right on the water. You can keep busy, visting local towns, or just laze around under a tree by the ocean-side. We are located just steps from the beach.

We are 1 hour and 15 minutes from Victoria, capital city of BC and 5 minutes away from small artisan, historical towns, Ladysmith and Chemainus. World renowned, Salt Spring Island, is a 20 minute drive to the ferry in Crofton, then a 40 minute absolutely scenic ferry ride.

Very nice place and view

  • 4 of 5

New and high end interior. Nice view from deck and very quiet area. Beach is a bit rocky but can walk a bit south to find sand for kids to play.

Such a quiet peaceful place to come home to while exploring beautiful VI.

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to good restaurants and things to do in Chemainus and Ladysmith -- and not too far from bustling Victoria and all it has to offer. But I especially enjoyed the days in between sightseeing when we just sat on the deck and admired the views. Just sorry the smoke rolled in from the fires in BC and obscured Mt. Baker. Thanks Jasmine for sharing your lovely sea house with us! Barbara

Really enjoyed staying here. Beautiful house with an amazing view. Me and my two kids really enjoyed access to the beach, as well. Jasmine is absolutely wonderful and tries very hard to meet all your needs. She's a gem! Such a great house, too! Everything you need. We found the location nice and quiet but central to drive to many places that we wanted to see. We were very pleased with everything and enjoyed our trip even more because of staying here. It was relaxing and perfect for the three of us. With kids ages 12 & 14, we also appreciated the fast WiFi and access to Netflix.

Highly recommended!

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed to October long weekend and had an amazing time - The house is new inside and out - clean and well equipped.

The ocean view is amazing - we watched the ferries travel through the moon light reflecting on the water. I recommend this wonderful home to everybody.

Jasmine is a wonderful host and will truly make you feel at home.

ouah!!! Génial! I fell in love...

  • 5 of 5

My Gosh! This house and this view!

We enjoyed a lot the stay in the house...

The children loved to go to swim everyday at the beach which is at few steps from the house... trying to catch crabs...

And the deck terrace was offering a perfect aera to get rest and enjoy.

The house 's is really perfect; with all the facilities and an amazing view.

We hope to go back soon there. I miss it.

Ouah! Cette vue! Et cette maison!

Nous avons passé un excellent moment. Nous avons particulièrement aimé le côté "nature" (les biches dans le fond du jardin, les phoques dans l'eau, la mer à proximité...) C'est un endroit reposant.

Les enfants ont adoré aller à la plage, qui se trouve à quelques mètres, juste pour aller se baigner, attrapper des crabes...

Sans oublier la terrasse en bois au bord de l'eau à laquelle on a accès... pratique pour faire des "pique-nique", pour observer les animaux et se reposer.

La maison est jolie et pratique. La vue de la terrasse est exceptionnelle. Et la situation géographique de la maison est bonne: à 1h00 de Victoria et proche de Ladysmith et de Nanaimo.

Bref un petit coin de paradis, j'espère que nous aurons très vite l'occasion d'y retourner...
