Vancouver Island House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Columbia Beach House is a spacious and beautifully appointed oceanfront home located in a quiet neighborhood in Parksville BC on Vancouver Island. This distinctive single level, 3200 sq foot home offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large office with computer and printer, high speed WiFi internet, a gourmet kitchen with huge island and custom cherry cabinetry, living and dining rooms separated by a double-sided gas fireplace, laundry room, central vacuum, air conditioning, 2 car garage and large landscaped lot. The stunning ocean views can be enjoyed throughout the house from the master bedroom along with its ensuite bathroom and attached art studio, living room, dining room, breakfast room and kitchen.

Columbia Beach House is situated on a flat, extensively landscaped lot with 100 feet of walk-on beach front. The ocean side of the house features multiple patios, a gazebo and gas BBQ grill. From here you can see the mountains on both Vancouver Island and the mainland of BC, as well as the many islands dotting the Strait of Georgia. Wildlife is abundant where bald eagles and sea lions can be seen within view. Listen to seals bark and the calls of over 60 species of water fowl, and with a little luck you may catch a glimpse of a killer whale passing by. As the day turns to evening, you can enjoy a breathtaking sunset and watch the fishing boats and cruise ships making their way through the sparkling ocean waters.

You will feel the tension ease the moment you walk through the doors of Columbia Beach House and catch your first glimpse of the panoramic ocean view. The breakfast room, dining room, living room and master bedroom all have double French doors leading out onto the patios, so regardless of whether you are waking up in the king size bed in the master bedroom, soaking in the jetted tub, finding inspiration in the art studio, enjoying your morning coffee in the breakfast sunroom, serving dinner for eight at the beautiful teak dining table, or relaxing with a good book by the dramatic floor-to-ceiling rock fireplace in the living room, you will be able to savor the spectacular view. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and an exquisite master bath complete with radiant heat in the slate floor and a no-step door-less shower. Suitable for family gatherings, the guest room has two double beds and the third bedroom has two sets of bunk beds that will delight children or adults alike with its cozy nautical theme. Sliding glass pocket doors open into a huge living/entertainment room in the center of the house. Heading towards the back of the house, you will find an enormous laundry room with tiled floors. The fenced yard can be accessed from the laundry room, the garage, or the fully tiled pet grooming room complete with a raised tub. Throughout the house you will find unique tile work, custom cabinetry, and many other unique and exceptional touches that make this a truly magnificent home.

Columbia Beach House is located in French Creek, BC on beautiful and picturesque Vancouver Island. Golfers will find 7 courses to choose from in the area. A short 5km drive south will take you to Parksville where you will find all the services and amenities you will need. Expansive sandy beaches around Parksville have earned it the nickname Canada's Riviera and are host to the Canadian Open Sandcastle Competition every summer. Travel 5km north to Qualicum Beach and explore its many galleries, shops and restaurants. The central island location is perfect for day trips to explore the natural grandeur of Vancouver Islands mountains, rainforests and coastline, experience the worlds best salmon fishing, surf on the west coast at Long Beach, or explore the magic of Victoria.

Please note that term rates apply for the summer peak season period only unless booking within 21 nights of arrival. Nightly rates will vary dependent on the term rate value and the length of stay required. Term periods run from Saturday to Saturday.

Reviewer Comments:

Rented property for 5 weeks (May/June 2016). Excellent location and great for families. Our only disappointment was that the kitchen oven was not fully functional and even though we complained during the first week, the management company was unable to organise a replacement or get it fixed. However, that said, we will definitely book this property again.

Reviewer Comments:

Property photos do not do this property justice! Although probably from the 90's the finishing quality is above average and well maintained. Very spacious with ocean view from every floor-to-ceiling window and direct access to miles of beach walking! Close to everything - but why would you want to leave!!!!!

Our family had an amazing stay at this vacation home. Everything was exactly as described and more! The views are stunning and the sunsets were gorgeous. We enjoyed watching bald eagles and sea lions and spent a lot of time exploring shells in the water. The location is fantastic, between Parksville and Qualicum Beach, and we were able to do many day trips to other sights on the island. Groceries were easy to get and we were not wanting for anything. The property management company was very easy to deal with and were available if we had any questions. We are already dreaming of our next vacation here!

Wonderful quiet property . Spectacular ever-changing ocean front views with eagles, herons, sea lions & seals. Great kitchen, dining room and living room for entertaining. Visit the farmers market in Quallicum and Goats on the Roof in Coombs. The Francis Barkly day cruise out of Port Alberni to Tofino is memorable as are the fish & chips at Bare Bones(Port Alberni). Endless opportunities for day trips to parks and beaches in the area.
