Oceanside 3 bedroom, 3 bath with panoramic view of ocean from most rooms
About Victoria Brown
We are an executive couple who fell in love with this unique waterfront property which was featured before on VRBO with loads of 5 star reviews. We love the water, nature, sea life and travel.
Victoria Brown purchased this House in 2016
Why Victoria Brown chose Beachcomber
This proximity to the ocean is no longer allowed so it truly is one of the most unique oceanfront properties on Vancouver island with an expansive 75 foot gated deck that allows you to be closer to sea life, eagles, deer and sunsets. A recent masterful renovation enhanced this home into a luxurious, private retreat, complete with open concept kitchen and great room with expansive ocean views. Vaulted ceilings, panoramic windows and wood burning fireplace set up the experience of optimum relaxation. The bonus room with its own kitchenette and ensuite enhance the privacy of this dream get away.
What makes this House unique
Private rocky beach, gas lit fireplace on huge oceanside deck, easy access for kayaking, great biking, wheel chair friendly and easy accessibility with rancher style 2 bedrooms on main and bonus bedroom with a separate entrance upstairs. Completely transformed in a recent renovation, this is a breathtaking unique property.

Stunning view and property
This property is truly a gem in Nanoose Bay area, we (3 families) stayed at this property for 3 nights and I can't explain enough how pleasant our experience was. Every single of us had a wonderful time at this beautiful and super clean property. Whatever you expect from a vacation rental place, this property has and offers even beyond what you expect. The pictures can not truly describe the stunning view that you can get from its living room and patio. I want to recommend this place to everyone who wants to have a peaceful vacation in a classy place which is maintained very well and decorated with taste and passion. Just to make it short, if I'm asked, what was missing about this property that could make our staying better, I believe I have nothing to say. Give it a shot, you wont regret.
Thanks for taking the time to write a lovely review. It's true that the views are hard to describe. Nature is so beautiful around this property we chose neutral colors to allow the seascape and landscape to be the feature. We're glad your families enjoyed this special oasis.
Perfect family holiday
This property is in a perfect location and it’s south west exposure makes for lovely afternoons in the sun and stunning sunsets. A small issue we had on the first evening was quickly looked after and we enjoyed every minute after that. We’d love to stay at Rock n Water again if we have the chance.
Thanks Carl for taking the time to write us a lovely review. We do really appreciate the view and find it is nature's stunning display of colors and moods enjoyable in all weather and it seems to be a unique micro climate here where we often still end up with sunny afternoons and evenings when its raining elsewhere. We hope you will think of us for your next getaway.
The R&R we needed !
We feel so Lucy to have found this place on VRBO.
The house is beautiful , the beds are so comfortable and the view is stunning from sunrise to sunset ! We really enjoyed watching the wildlife outside on the ocean with a glass of wine until sunset.
We are coming back again !
Thanks Victoria and Keith for sharing your beautiful vacuous property for others to enjoy 😊�

Amazing property! Beautiful location.
We enjoyed our R&R time at Rocknwater. The home, hot tub and location was everything we had hoped for.
Tha is JoAnn - it’s lovely you took the time to review our property. Your husband took some breathtaking pictures of our spectacular sunsets. They really are magical. Warmly Victoria
A wonderful experience
This house is lovely, with the long side, almost solid glass, facing south and west, with extraordinary scenery. The hot tub adjacent to the furnished patio is special for sunrises and sunsets. There are flat screens in every room, and a wonderful sound system inside and out. Easy access to excellent restaurants, shopping, and a variety of recreation activities. There is an abundance of deer, seals, otter, birds, sea lions, and other wildlife. And even close to a marina and other residences, the house is remarkably private.
Thanks so much for taking the time to review our property. We are so glad you were able to enjoy the changing skyscape and nature! It's what drew us to the property. We enjoyed having you stay and we hope you will choose us for a private get away again. Warmly, Victoria
Beautiful & Peaceful
Such a relaxing place to stay! The whole family (ages 8-67) had a great time exploring the rocky shore, visiting surrounding areas or relaxing in the hot tub ; thank you!!
Thanks Denise! Yes the hot tub is our favorite place during any weather to watch the seascape and skies. Glad you enjoyed yourselves. Best Victoria
