Mill Bay house description

This lovely rental home is tucked away in the country, close to the ocean, Mill Bay Village and all that the Cowichan Valley has to offer. Surrounded by meadows and forest, it is an excellent place to enjoy a family vacation or a quiet restful getaway.

This beautiful house offers luxurious furnishings and is the perfect home base, with nearby Arbutus Ridge Golf & Country Club, Cowichan Valley Wineries, river trails offering hiking, biking and horseback riding, kayaking and fishing in the calm waters of Mill Bay or Cowichan Bay. The beach and rainforest nature trails are about a 10 minute stroll along the quiet country road.

This spacious house offers a large master bedroom with King bed and ensuite bathroom; a second King bedroom; Queen bedroom, and two separate bathrooms. The open plan layout features a living room with large windows opening out to the garden, fully equipped kitchen, dining room and kitchen table with doors opening out to the sunny patio and propane BBQ. There is also a separate games room, office and a large garage.

Cuddle by the cozy fireplace, or barbecue in the late evening sunshine and relax on the patio. The large yard and peaceful roads are ideal for children biking and playing. Go beach combing or enjoy all of the fun of the ocean. Rent a kayak and explore the Saanich Inlet or take a mountain bike and head off to the Galloping Goose Trail (part of the Trans Canada Trail). Tour the local boutique wineries, shops and markets and enjoy fresh local produce.

Many exciting adventures can also be found slightly farther afield... Cruise across the inlet on the Mill Bay Ferry to Brentwood Bay (resort, marina & restaurant), then visit the impressive Butchart Gardens and watch the fireworks show (Saturday evenings during the summer).

Be sure to explore the bustling harbour city of Victoria, a 40 minute drive south from the villa. Surrounded by ocean and forests, there are amazing hiking opportunities (stop at Goldstream Park for lush trails, waterfalls and the Goldstream River, a popular spot to watch the Fall salmon run.)
Head to Victoria's Inner Harbour for whale watching adventures, fishing trips and float plane flights! Visit the Royal BC Museum, Parliament Buildings, historic Empress Hotel, Miniature World, the Bug Zoo or go on a horse-drawn carriage ride. The beaches and breakwater along Dallas Road are a lovely walk through Beacon Hill Park. With its bountiful cafes, restaurants, boutique shops, antique stores, historic buildings and beautiful views- Victoria has something for everyone!

After a fun day sightseeing look forward to relaxing in this peaceful location as the sun sets over the hills.

Car: Recommended

Located in the beautiful Cowichan Valley area of Vancouver Island, Mill Bay is at the south end of what is becoming well known as a wine growing area with balmy temperatures and ocean breezes. Approximately a thirty minute drive north of Victoria, BC's capital city, Mill Bay is also a short and scenic ferry ride from Brentwood Bay, home of world famous Butchart Gardens. Calm waters are a feature of this sunny and warm part of the island. From rowing to salmon fishing, hiking to mountain biking, and picnics to wine tours there is a vast number of interesting things to see and do.
