Relax and unwind at Summer Day Beach House, a beautiful new air-conditioned luxury retreat with your own gourmet kitchen. Enjoy more amenities than most 5 star hotels. It’s all here, whether you are a family with children, or one or two couples wanting to enjoy a romantic getaway and a retreat from the city.
Enjoy Qualicum Bay scallops, Fanny Bay oysters, and local prawns, crab, salmon and halibut prepared in a gorgeous kitchen with quartz counter tops, stainless steel Electrolux range and dishwasher, and Jenn-Air refrigerator. Dining for six inside at an antique dining table or outside through French doors leading onto a large terrace with a Weber BBQ and ocean view.
Summer Day Beach House is fully equipped and beautifully furnished. Dim the lights and relax in front of a large Panasonic HD TV and the fireplace, or listen to your favourite music throughout the house on the built-in Russound audio system. Enjoy soft towels and a luxurious walk-in shower with two shower heads in one bathroom, or a relaxing bathtub in the second bathroom. Both bathrooms have granite counter tops and heated marble floors. Curl up in one of three bedrooms (two downstairs, one upstairs) on fine Italian linens.
After your morning coffee, walk on the 500 feet of private beachfront, or beach comb along miles of undisturbed beach and see deer, bald eagles and the rare Qualicum white raven. Enjoy your lunch in the provided picnic basket at the clubhouse where you may use the swimming pool, separate adult and children whirlpools, exercise room, party room and pool table. At the end of the day relax at the beach picnic tables or around the fire pit as you watch the Alaska cruise ships pass between you and Lasqueti and Texada Islands.
Over the next days you can golf at one of six local golf courses, or enjoy sport fishing at Deep Bay. Visit the pub and fish market at French Creek, where you can also take the passenger ferry to Lasqueti Island. Baynes Sound offers bird watching. Horseback riding is nearby. Travel on the nearby Buckley Bay car ferry for the 15-minute trip to Denman Island or on a second ferry on to Hornby Island. Provincial parks abound: you can swim, suntan, or play in the sand at nearby Qualicum Beach, Parksville, or Spider Lake, go spelunking at the nearby Horne Lake Caves, or enjoy the majesty of old-growth forests at Cathedral Grove. Shop or dine in the delightful town of Qualicum Beach with its galleries and restaurants, or visit the village of Coombes with its waterslide, parrot refuge, butterfly world and old country market where there is a family of goats living on the roof! A leisurely day trip west to Port Alberni and Long Beach, or north to Campbell River, Courtenay and Comox are all waiting for you.
About one hour to skiing, boarding or snowshoeing at Mount Washington, it boasts over 36 feet of snow in a season, more than any other ski resort in Canada. It is also a great place for mountain biking and hiking in the summer.
Summer Day Beach House is at Qualicum Landing. Qualicum Landing is a gated luxury waterfront community about 45 minutes by car from the Nanaimo ferry terminal. Centrally located in what is known as Lighthouse Country and the Oceanside region of central Vancouver Island, it is 10 minutes north of Qualicum Beach.
