Property description

Sea Meadows is a 21-acre estate on the 'Queen of the Gulf Islands' -- Gabriola Island. Gabriola is just a 20-minute ferry ride from Nanaimo; and once on the island, Sea Meadows is less than one mile from the ferry dock. The estate consists of four homes that are connected by a paved, oval driveway -- in a very private, peaceful, and pretty park-like setting. The main residence is set back 1/3 of a mile from the rental homes, to ensure maximum privacy for all. There are three rental homes. The Round House is approximately 300 feet, respectively, from cozy Descanso Bay. Only a lightly traveled road separates the estate from the natural cove and beachfront. The beach is a typical British Columbia beach -- both rocky and sandy, yet flat. You can enjoy beach combing, swimming, and even launching and anchoring your boat in the bay.

The estate consists of three homes connected by a paved, 1/3 mile oval driveway, in a very private, peaceful, and pretty and park-like setting. The first two 'The Gate House' and 'The Round House' are approximately a city block apart, and are 150 and 300 feet from cozy Descanso Bay. Only a lightly traveled road separates the estate from the natural cove and unobstructed beachfront. The beach is a typical B.C. beach, rocky and sandy yet flat walk on waterfront. You may beach comb, swim or even launch and anchor your boat in the bay. For large boats there is a marina 10 minutes away.

The entire estate is walled in on 3 sides by trees, with a concrete entrance, and entrance pillars in front. We are also able to accommodate 28 and more guests. In addition the property is available for short-term and long-term, as well as weekly rentals. It is perfect for a corporate retreat, family reunion, wedding, etc. Of course as listed each house is available as a private estate or each may be rented separately. All are individually private.
For Holidays and Special Events.

The 'Gate House' features an extra large living room (about 700sq.ft.), with 3 queen size sofa beds. The living room may be divided in half making the sofa beds into additional private sleeping quarters, four (4) large bedrooms, 14' x 15' each with queen sized beds complete with linens and comforters. Each room is decorated in different decor with sliding doors leading to a 12' X 15' private patio with patio furniture. The two (2) full bathrooms are equipped with fluffy towels and the kitchen is completely self-contained with refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, dinnerware and utensils. The Gate House includes entertainment features such as a 42in.HD TV, with CD player and am/fm radio.
