Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Originally from Quadra Island, I bought this home so I could retire back to the coast and be near family. Because I can't be there as often as I would like I enjoy sharing it with others. The view and the quiet are so amazing , you never want to leave.

Why the Owner Chose Quadra Island:
The view - location , location, location. I grew up around the area on various islands and now live in Toronto. It is restorative.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This home is right on the beach for easy supervision of children. It is on a very quiet dead end road. The house is comfortable and has a well supplied kitchen. It is very close to all the amenities , ferry, stores , restaurants, liquor stores, but still feels very rural and quiet. The cabin is comfortable for a second couple or grandparents that need some quiet times. They can make their own morning coffee in their own small kitchen with a fridge, toaster oven , microwave and coffee maker. The outdoor shower also makes beach cleanup easy. I fell in love with the convenience of the location but still very quiet and rural. I love the view from the deck, dining room and living room. Once there I am reluctant to leave. It is very relaxing but there is always something to watch on the water. Boats, Orcas, Eagles, seals , crows, and much much more.
