                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1992

                      About the owner: I am a registered clinical counsellor in private practice located in Vancouver, BC, Canada. My husband owns his own business in carpet cleaning and flood restoration also located in Vancouver. Together we have two grown sons who are also in business.

                      Why the Owner Chose Quadra Island:
                      This property we bought off of my husband's parents while they were still living in it. His mother bought it as a surprise for her loving husband and surprised him with it. They used this initially as their summer vacation spot but in their latter years, they moved in and lived there until 2004.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This lovely home has a 180 degree span of the ocean on either side with mountains located far off into the distance. There is plenty of driftwood on the beach to satisfy any bomb-fire enthusiast such as myself as you can see from the picture.
