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
Our home's 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 80 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
Proximity to ocean, private rocky beach, hot tub steps from ocean, gas lit fireplace on huge oceanside deck, easy access for kayaking, great biking, wood burning fireplace inside, vaulted ceilings, floor to sky windows, 2 bedrooms on main and bonus bedroom with a separate entrance upstairs. Completely transformed in a recent renovation, this is a breathtaking unique property.

We had a wonderful stay at Rock n water! The house was perfectly appointed, had everything we could have wanted!! We will miss having coffee or a glass of wine in the hot tub!! We saw amazingly a pod of killer whales, otters and seals! So cool! We had car trouble and Victoria and Mary totally accommodated us for a few more days! Such a pleasurable stay! We’ll come back!!
Thanks Michaleen for taking the time to write a lovely review. How lucky you were to see the whales! I’m so glad you had that amazing experience. They’ve been around but we have not yet seen them. Hope you come back soon. Warmly Victoria
Beautiful home in a perfect place
This is an immaculate home in a truly beautiful part of the world. We spent four days in Victoria’s home and had a wonderful time. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is a wonderful place to do it.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a lovely review Cameron. We do love the private, slower pace surrounded by nature. We hope you will consider us again when you want an escape. Warmly Victoria
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 😊�

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. Sitting on the patio watching all the birds, seals, sea lions, deer and whales are our favorite past time even in cooler months sitting in the hot tub. Warmly, Victoria
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
