Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: As the owners of a travel agency, we have had the opportunity to stay at many wonderful places. We have tried to use those travel experiences to create an inviting and comfortable environment for the enjoyment of both our guests and our family in a location known for it's natural beauty. Whether we are sailing, kayaking, or pulling the grandchildren behind our power boat, we love being on the water. Especially on Lake Cowichan which we think is the nicest lake on Vancouver Island.

Why the Owner Chose Youbou:
With great paved roads all the way and an easy to find location, this wonderful getaway allows our family to quickly get away from our Victoria city home for some boating, fishing, swimming, kayaking, or just plain relaxing. The area is great for kids and adults alike with lots of activities for everyone within a thirty minute drive including golf, tennis, hiking, horseback riding, river rafting, whale watching, theatre, shopping, vineyards, restaurants, artist tours, the famous murals of Chemainus, and the quaint seaside village of Cowichan Bay. For even more activities, Victoria is just over an hour's drive while Nanaimo is approximately 45 minutes away. Ferry and air service is available to Vancouver through both Nanaimo and Victoria.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our lakefront getaway is a modern, custom built 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home with dock, landscaped yard, private outdoor hot tub, fireplace, and beautiful sunset views located on one of Vancouver Island's largest lakes. Bring your boat, kayak, canoe, and fishing pole - or just a good book and nice bottle of wine. We've included a few nice finishing touches as well including granite kitchen counter tops, high end stainless appliances, large master bedroom with fireplace and ensuite, and much more.
