Property description

A Unique, Beachfront Vacation Rental

Looking for an oceanfront vacation rental home? Look no further. This exquisite 'walk-on' beachfront home, located in Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, is a holiday dream home. A modern, stylish two-storey private residence, on famous Departure Bay, can be your vacation rental dream come true. Open the door to our website and see for yourself.

Seaview Beach House, Nanaimo, BC

Our extensively upgraded renovated private waterfront residence sits on a long swath of 'walk-on' oceanfront beach in Departure Bay, in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island.

Nestled at the end of a laneway and fronting onto the beach, this 2,100 square foot home has sweeping views of Departure Bay and the far off Coastal Mountain Range. Watch ferries and seaplanes come and go, eagles soar overhead and seals and otters playing off the front deck. The house faces east, so you will wake to magnificent sunrises that flood the house with light through floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows.

An Ideal Mid-Island Location

Departure Bay is a mere 1.5 kilometers from shopping and dining with a number of restaurants within walking distance of the house. Nanaimo is a thriving community of parks, beaches, charming eclectic shops, waterfront walks, marinas and myriad dining choices from fine to casual, plus all the modern convenience needed for an enjoyable stay. These include grocery stores, gas stations, libraries, theatres, restaurants and delis, specialty food shops, spas, doctors and dentists, massage therapists and beauty salons.

The city of Nanaimo sits mid-Island and is a central arrival and departure point for BC Ferries to the BC Mainland. There is also an airport , or you can come and go via seaplane (Harbour Air, Seair Seaplanes or Westcoast Air) into Nanaimo Harbour from downtown Vancouver or Vancouver International Airport. The seaplane trip is only 20 minutes!

The TransCanada Highway (Hwy #1) runs directly through the heart of Nanaimo. From here you can venture north to Mount Washington, Courtenay and Comox, west to Tofino or south to the Cowichan Valley and Victoria. Please see below for links to information about the area:
