About Phil

We purchased the property as a family vacation home with my Father in Law and 2 brother in laws. We used to rent out the cottage on the property through the summer but have decided to turn our family getaway into a place where others can enjoy as well. We decided this year to rent the house out for the summer and off season rentals instead. The cottage is now rented out long term and is at the top of the property with its own parking and it totally separate from the house. The house (right on the lake) is the only building that has access to the beach/wharf/yard. We have two boys who absolutely love the lake and have learned to swim here. The water is clean and clear and because of the shallow entry it is awesome for kids to enjoy. We have also had the chance to spend Christmas up here with wood fireplace, creating memories that our kids will always remember.

Phil purchased this house in 2008

Why Phil chose Vancouver Island

This is a great family property with a grassy backyard and sandy beach for the kids. The open concept main floor is great for entertaining with floor to ceiling windows taking in the gorgeous view of the lake. The lower level has a pool table room inside and under the deck outside is the ping pong table and hot tub. Loads of parking is great for when friends come over to enjoy the day.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows with beautiful views of the lake year round. The mountains when snow has fallen is such a beautiful view on a winters morning while sipping coffee by the fireplace.

Perfect home base!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of friends and had a fantastic weekend at the lake house. Very large, spacious, and clean. The house is right on the water with a great lawn and small beach. Kitchen was large with a big dining table, so we ate meals in and enjoyed the great view. Phil was great to deal with, very flexible and welcoming to our pooch. Thanks Phil & family, we had a fantastic time! Would definitely stay again and recommend.

Great Vacation on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Family had an amazing time at the lake. House was big and had everything we needed including beach towels. The kids had a blast on the beach and the wharf was amazing to relax on. The yard was great for the games that we brought up. Phil was a pleasure to deal with and even left us a couple extra life jackets for the kids for when we used the canoe. Thanks Very much we had a great time. HIGHLY recommend!!!
