Come pamper yourself at Artemis House by the Sea, a new three-bedroom house in a safe gated community near Qualicum on the east coast of Vancouver Island. We use the name Artemis because that was the protector of wildlife in Greek myth, and there are deer you can see everywhere in the Qualicum area, including this property. Celebrate the mild spring climate of Qualicum with a swim in the heated pool, followed by a soak in the hot tub while you watch the sun set over the calm blue ocean, with the Misty Mountains in the distance.

Let the mild, salty Georgia Straits breeze waft through your mind, while you beachcomb along our private beach. Collect seashells and bring them back to the house for a barbecue, or go on down to the campfire to watch the dusk settle peacefully all around you. Stroll home for a game of croquet or an active game of Wii sports; later, enjoy a quiet read in the luxurious bathtub, and then sink into your luxurious beds for a lovely peaceful slumber. Refreshment of mind and spirit await you here.

Artemis Cottage is steps from the ocean, with access to a clubhouse featuring a billiards room, a meeting room, a marvelous heated pool, and two hot tubs. You will enjoy the wonderful granite counters in the house's kitchen, along with fabulous modern appliances that make preparing a meal a pleasure. The Great Room, with its twenty foot ceilings, features fascinating Egyptian papyrus art, as do the well-appointed bedrooms. The star-filled nights may prompt your romantic spirit, or you may simply want to kick back and enjoy a good book or some fine music. Whatever activities you choose to enjoy, relaxation comes naturally with every stay at Artemis Cottage by the Sea.

In the morning, take a fascinating drive to Coombs, the lovely village nearby with goats on the sod roof, or to the quaint town of Qualicum with its Saturday Farmers Market, or to Courtenay along the coastal drive, where you can buy some famous Fanny Bay oysters for the evening meal.

In the afternoon, enjoy skimboarding at sandy Qualicum Beach, or go into Parksville to enjoy its wonderful restuarants and green spaces. Everywhere you look there are wonderful views and relaxing drives. If you like, have a game of golf at one of the five nearby golf courses, play mini-golf with the kids, or go horseback riding. Take an hour's drive to ski on Mount Washington's nearby slopes, or a little longer to visit Long Beach at Tofino, where surfers frolic all winter long. Whatever your pleasure, you will find it very near to Artemis Cottage, your relaxation centre away from home.

Year Purchased: 2011

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will find staying at Artemis Cottage a wonderful opportunity to beachcomb along the private shoreline, bringing home special rocks and shells. You can take photographs of the herons, seals, deer, salmon-hunting eagles, and other wild and beautiful creatures that show themselves every day. You can sit around the campfire and roast marshmallows at night, or simply soak in the hot tubs or pool. Come home and play Wii sports to burn off the calories you picked up during the barbecue on your private deck. If the night is chilly, turn on your private patio heater to warm things up while you wait for your scallops and steak. During the day, take a short drive to Coombs to see the goats on the sod roofs, or do some skiing on Mount Washington, only a short hour away by car. Do some second-hand store browsing at the characterful shops along the coastal drive, or drop in for coffee at one of the characterful shops in Bowser. On Saturday, drive into Qualicum Beach for the Farmers Market, and then visit the Art Gallery, with its wonderfully talented artistis working in their studios while people watch. Thereès always something interesting to do near Artemis Cottage, so come and experience these restorative pleasures soon.
