Parksville house description

Relax in the large hot tub looking up at the stars or out to sea. Watch the cruise ships meander up or down the coast while you BBQ dinner. Nestled 5 minutes between Parksville and Qualicum, this very private waterfront property offers wonder filled sunrises and beautiful sunsets and sandy beaches just steps away.

Snorkel the bay, kayak to Parksville or charter a boat and try your luck at fishing its all within easy walking distance. The beach is a mixture of sand (at the foot of the path) gravel and small (up to 6' average) rocks and is lots of fun for sandcastle building and beach combing. Try just lying in the sun while your kids fly a kite at low tide. In short the beach is perfect for all ages. It is a very private and protected area at high tide and the perfect swimming spot in the summer with warm water created as the water flows over the hot sand. The average depth at high tide in the middle of the bay is approximately 4-5 ft with a flat bottom mixture of sand and rocks, great for snorkeling or floating.

The marina directly in view always boasts the opportunity to walk the docks and enjoy the salt air, shop for fresh seafood or ride the ferry to Lasqueti Island. The Creek House Restaurant and Pub are only a few minutes walk along the sandy beach. Morningstar golf course is close by with a Sushi bar and Bakery next door.
The 2000 sq ft Beach House has 3 bedrooms and an observation porch sofa bed(sleeps 2)and a sofa bed in the living room(sleeps 2)so can accommodate up to 11 guests. On the ocean side of the house on the main floor is the master bedroom there are 2 bedrooms upstairs with 1 twin 1 double and 1 queen bed. Next to the master bedroom is the main bath and then full kitchen. The kitchen patio doors open up onto a large covered deck with a 6 person private hot tub, 2 patio tables with chairs and a large gas barbecue and wood fire pit. Just past the deck is an apple orchard often visited by the local deer and bunnies. Next there is a cozy dining room that seats up to eight with a natural gas pedestal stove inserted into a brick chimney facade. Past the dining room is the main entrance and mud/laundry room. The living room which faces the water comfortably seats 8 with entertainment center.

Opening from the living room is the front porch with a breathtaking view of the ocean, coastal mountains and marina and is only surpassed by a short walk to an almost completely private beach. The ideal country beach getaway without leaving the city.

It is possible to walk to Parksville city center along the beach (approximately 3 km.)I have done it many times although good shoes and the right tides are needed before venturing out. Qualicum Beach is about the same distance but the town center is not on the beach and you must cross the creek first if you are to walk there. Qualicum Town center is about 1/2 km inland and boasts live theater,indoor saltwater pool,large market,bakeries and art center.
There are many places to eat within walking distance of The Beach House. Only a short stroll along the beach, the marina offers a waterfront cafe overlooking the boats, perfect for coffee, lunch or dinner . Just past this is a grocery store, pub/restaurant . Directly across the road is a world class Japanese Sushi Restaurant. Beside this is a bakery with a coffee shop with lots of sweets. There is also a seafood store at the main dock where you can purchase fresh prawns, Alaskan smoked cod, fresh oysters, crab and halibut just to name a few of the delightful BBQ treats

Down the road about a five minute walk towards Parksville city center is a bakery and store complex. Five minutes past that is a mall with 2 eateries, supermarket and lots of shops.
The places that I would recommend to see are many and they all depend on your interests and schedule, some quite close like Rathtrevor Provincial Park and the town of Coombs which has the market with the goats on the roof. Also close by is Cameron Lake and McMillan's Cathedral Grove with huge trees that have to be seen to be believed.

There are the Horn Lake Caves with tours that you could take. Summertime swimming in Spider Lake Park or in the river at Top Bridge or Little Qualicum Falls Park all are amazing places and are very close. The West Coast of Vancouver Island Long Beach is breathtaking but involves a full day trip. Closer (across the beach at the Marina) there is a ferry to Lasqueti Island which is also an enjoyable day trip.
