Excellent gathering place for family and friends! We love to see generational families gathered here. Beautiful beach walks and star lit beach fires. The tides have been very high this season, hitting the edge of our property. Impressive storms have created incredible views, with lots of wave action. The tidal pools have been teeming with fish, crabs, starfish, etc. The sunroom is a cozy room to watch the sun rise and set, and the wild life activity on the water.

There are four separate outdoor spaces created, allowing room for all to enjoy either the sun or shade.

Island born and raised, and an islander at heart, the best days for us are days we spend at the beach with family and friends.
Nola or Brad purchased this house in 2013
Its been our life long dream to live on the waters edge, we love the sound of the waves, and the antics of the seals and pups. It is ideally located in the heart of the island with access to all ammenities
We stood on the the seawall, an looked at the ocean vista and said to each other, 'this is it....'
We are a 3 generation family that had the pleasure of staying at this fantastic house. There is a big safe yard for the kids to play in and a hot tub for the adults. Fantastic views all day long and great beachcombing as the tide changes. Also perfectly situated for visiting all the great nearby lakes, towns and parks. Nola is great to work with. Thanks Nola for the great family vacation!
I just got home from staying a week at Nola and Brad's. I've lost count at how many times I've stayed here but it's been at least six times and at different times of the year. Each time of year has its own beauty. In the summer you can spend your day scouring the beach for the elusive moon snail shell, or just relaxing in one of many lounge chairs. Nola and Brad have made different areas where you can have some personal quiet time or gather together for family dinners. In the winter you can snuggle up in the sun room while the wood burning fireplace in the living room keeps you toasty warm, and watch the waves as they crash against the shore. No matter what time of year you go you will be always be reaching for a pair of binoculars checking out the wildlife like, bald eagles, sea lions, deer, and sea otters.
Nola has a flair for making her home and cabin warm and inviting and the home is equipped with everything you may need and more! Children are very welcome and there are numerous activities to keep them busy. For the "big" children you can always take one of the kayaks out onto the water and then return back to the property with a dip in the hot tub .
Should you need to venture out, the town of Bowser has a beautiful gallery called The Salish Sea. Everything in the gallery has been created by artists on the Salish Sea. The town of Qualicum is charming and a good place to stock up on groceries.Besides the view which is breathtaking, I will save the best for last. Your hosts Nola and Brad, are the most warm and hospitable people you will ever have the fortune to meet. Nola will embrace you and welcome you into her home. Thank you Nola and Brad for your hospitality and most of all your friendship. You just don't meet people like these two very often! Love Ya!

My family chose to come again to this beach home. We love the location, it really has everything from water toys, to a very well equipped kitchen, and lots of beach towels and nice linens. It is very clean, and family friendly, you feel immediately at home. We toured Horne Lake Caves, the Wild life Recovercy Center , Coombs Market and more. All within 15min from the house. Thank you for the warm welcome! We love your home and will be back! Ps.. Loved your additions this year! Especially the cool surfboard outdoor shower, and additional kayak!
This house has all the "Beach-Kit" ready, a nice view but there were a couple of drawbacks. The house is located right on the lower highway about 15 minutes outside of Qualicum Beach and there is highway noise.
The beach is lovely, but the adjacent property is a bit messy with concrete blocks scattered on their beach front.
In terms of the interior, it's a bit dated but clean.
We loved our stay at your beautiful oceanside home. We went to celebrate my 50th with friends and family. The house and cottage was perfect for 12 of us, with the amazing sunroom being the highlight, looking out onto the ocean it was a perfect gathering place.The house was clean and welcoming and it had everything we needed. We will be back for sure!! Thank you!!
Our second stay was just as good as our first.
Your Beach house is a annual event with my family now.
Brad and Nola are wonderful hosts, and we feel at home during our stays.
Oh yeah, there were 5 kayaks this time! We put some serious miles on all of them.
Another great stay..................
Long Beach Tofino is 2hrs away, Victoria, is apprx 2 hrs away as well, we are ideally located in central Vancouver Island. Many lakes, provincial parks, ocean walks, huge forests, within 30 miles
