About Ulrika Spence
I am a professional, who have been a Vancouver Island resident for the past 20 years. My children and I have spent our free time enjoying the various recreational activities, such as skiing, windsurfing, mountain biking, surfing, kayaking, etc., around Vancouver Island. We chose our home and location because of our strong desire to be close to nature throughout the four seasons. As well, the ability to arrive home, after a hard day at work, kicking back and enjoying the proximity to nature, yet close to the downtown amenities. The privacy of living in the mountainous rain forest without close neighbours, added to our decision to live here.
Ulrika Spence purchased this House in 2010

Beautiful private home
This place is absolutely beautiful. It is very private and has all the amenities you would ever need and more. The home is very inviting and welcoming. My twin boys couldn’t get enough of the pool and felt very much at home. Ulrika the property owner is very pleasant and accommodating. We only stayed a few days but wish it was for longer. Next time for sure.
Thanks again for sharing your beautiful home with us. We got to relax while the kids had plenty to do.
Peaceful and perfect
This home was everything we hoped for. Very relaxing property and home. We’ll definitely stay here again.
Relaxing escape on Vancouver island
My family spent a wonderful Memorial Day weekend at this location. It was well maintained with lots of flowers. The bed in the master is very comfortable. The other two beds are more suited to small adults or children. We liked that we felt immersed in nature but we were still able to order pizza. The ferry to get to the island is a bit expensive so make sure to budget for it. Ulrika was a joy to work with.
Perfect family getaway!
Wow this place was perfect for what we were looking for! We only spent two nights here, and next time we will definitely stay longer! Everything was perfect, I can't say enough great things about the pool, hot tub, unfortunately we did not get a chance to use the sauna :( , the media room and the beautiful property. It was quiet and peaceful and full of privacy. It was comfortable, clean and had all the amenities, even plenty of extras in the kitchen! Our young girls loved watching the butterflies and looking at all the flowers; the gardens are beautiful. We can't wait to go back again. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us Ulrika! We'll be back!
Beautiful home, stunning property!!!
We stayed here for a month in the summer and it wasn’t long enough! The house is so beautiful and spacious. The pictures don’t do it justice! And the outside is absolutely stunning. It’s so peaceful and private yet close to town. Perfect location to everything. The pool and hot tub was the icing on the cake. Our kids didn’t want to go back home. They wanted to stay forever, and so did we! Ulrika is so kind and was such a pleasure to deal with. She always responded right away. Thank you for everything Ulrika!!!
A Truly Incredible Vacation Home
It's hard to over-state what a great home this is and how awesome this part of Vancouver Island is. My wife, kids (ages 12 and 9) and I spent five of the most relaxing and fun-filled days ever here. This is the meaning of vacation! Ample room to spread out and relax as well as swim, play, grill and explore. The sense of privacy and tranquility at this home is very rare. Beaches, scenery and river swimming holes all nearby. We'll be back!
