Wonderful location right on the water. Great house!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 daughters and I had a wonderful week long stay at this amazing house. It was just the right size and everything we needed was there. We thoroughly enjoyed the firepit, jacuzzi, and breath taking views from the upper deck. The house is centrally located to take advantage of many activities nearby. The owners live next door and were available if we needed anything, but never intrusive. They were the perfect hosts. We look forward to coming back in the future.

Awesome Vacation Property

  • 4 of 5

Accurate Listing, Very clean well maintained, Owners were very friendly. The house was perfect and Kitchen, bedrooms and ammenities were excellent.

The beach was full of Oysters and rocks and was leased by an Oyster company who were very friendly and educated us on how it worked. I thought we were getting a sandy beach at low tide but no luck and was hard on your feet climbing through rocks to get to water.

My family still had a great time and we would suggest this place to friends.

Owner's Response: Hi Doug, It was great meeting you and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our property. As regular ocean swimmers in the summer months we try and time our swims at high tide, because the water comes right up to the edge of our property making it easy to get in and out the water. I hope you tried a few of the oysters - they are great raw or cooked in the shell on the BBQ! As you know, the oysters are only accessible on low tides and the fact the beach is not sandy we consider a big plus for our privacy because you never see anyone on it! Families with young kids love to explore the beach looking for crabs and starfish etc. Hope to see you back again one day! Kind regards, John and Sue

Beautiful getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic, well-maintained property and a gorgeous beach house. My husband, 3 friends, and I stayed here to celebrate my 30th birthday, complete with grilled dinners, roasted marshmallows at the fire on the beach, relaxing in the hot tub, and a day trip to Hornby Island (the ferry to Denman, which you cross to get to Hornby, is a 2-minute drive from the beach house).

Other than a beautiful setting, my next most important criteria for a vacation rental is a fully equipped kitchen (with a BBQ as a bonus). As a vegan fitness nut with food allergies who needs to eat 3000+ calories per day, I gotta be able to make all my own food! John and Sue's kitchen didn't disappoint, and had everything I needed.

Overall, would highly recommend this amazing vacation spot!

Perfect setting and great location.

  • 4 of 5

We loved that we were right on the water and yet not far from anything. Lots to do in the area. The nightly soak in the hot tub were a great way to end our busy days. Having a bedroom and bathroom upstairs and downstairs was great for our own privacy as well. The house was well provisioned and super clean. If you like seafood, you are in the right area. We visited many restaurants, etc. but really enjoyed the Fanny Bay Inn for their oysters, Roy's Towne Pub (Royston) for their fish and chips and Black Fin Pub (Comox) for the mussels in coconut curry sauce. Being close to the owners home was not an issue for us. We are going to recommend this home to our friends.

Great Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend in Buckley Bay!

The cabin had everything we needed and the views from the deck were awesome.

The hot tub felt amazing at the end of the day as we drank wine and watched the ferries travel back and forth.

Thank-you John and Sue for sharing your beach house with us.

Excellent retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lovely setting, very private, fully equipped kitchen. We were delighted to be there for 4 nights. Enjoyed the electric heat, fireplace, and sunshine on the balcony every day. In fact, the deck is brilliantly placed so that you get sunshine for almost the entire day. Fun to harvest a few oysters on the beach and cook them on the grill. Everything was clean and in tip-top condition.

Buckley Bay Beach House vacation rental is centrally located in Buckley Bay, a small community that is part of the Comox Valley on the east coast of Vancouver Island, BC. Our waterfront location, with private beach, wildlife viewing and large garden, will keep you as busy as you want to be but if your itinerary includes getting out to see more of Vancouver Island (and there’s lots to see and do) we have some suggestions for you.

Whale watching (for killer whales!!), salmon fishing, golfing, hiking in wonderful Strathcona Provincial Park, downhill skiing/snowboarding/nordic skiing at Mount Washington Alpine Resort, great family fun exploring at Horne Lake Caves, visit Hornby Island (the ferry is just down the road) for lovely hiking along the bluffs in Halliwell Park or on the beach at Tribune Bay.
