Property description

Welcome to your home away from home!! ATTENTION Canadian residents due to the current high exchange rate please ask for a quote that will be on par with the USD from Sept 2015 to June 2016. Our 3,000 square foot home is situated on a walk-on waterfront beach with tidal pools, sandbars, and the natural beauty of eagles in flight and a variety of oceanside delights. The home boasts everything you need including 5 fully furnished bedrooms including a sunroom and a 1,000 square foot music studio in a glass room that overlooks Wall Beach.

This mid-island location offers close proximity to the beautiful beaches of Parksville/Qualicum Beach and day trips to Victoria or Tofino as well as many local attractions including horseback riding, marina/boat rentals, world famous spas/resorts, and a private family atmosphere. Musicians, artists, and media enthusiasts will be delighted by a studio which will indulge and inspire your senses as the home has been featured in a variety of film/music/radio broadcasts as well as CD recording launch parties, concerts and the Bard to Broadway Home and Garden tour in July 2007.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Arnie and I bought our beautiful home eight years ago and we love sharing our wonderful property with others including our friends, children, students, and grandchildren as well as folks on vacation or potential owners in the Nanoose area. This is our second home that we bought in Nanoose and we have been renting our properties since 1991 when we bought our first home on Dolphin Bay, Nanoose.

Why the Owner Chose Nanoose Bay:
The location of the beach house is situated on a private beach with neighbors who have owned their properties for generations. The beach is a combination of executive beachfront homes and cabins. We bought the home as it is one level with only a few steps up for easy access for seniors as well as for our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The most unique feature is sitting in the glass studio and having the eagles fly over while you are sitting on the sofa bed and enjoying the cruise ships passing by at night over the cruise boat season. Lastly, the property has extensive gardens that need a lot of time and attention. Thanks goodness for our wonderful cleaning lady and team of gardeners.
