Nanoose Bay house description

Our lovely oceanview home is steps to the beach and golf course, nestled in forested parkland with groomed hiking and biking trails, private back yard and relaxing atmosphere - a perfect get-away retreat.

Located in beautiful Nanoose Bay in central Vancouver Island our home is a 20 minute drive to the emerging city of Nanaimo (shopping, restaurants, live theatre, cinema and much more), a 15 minute drive to the beachfront community of Parksville and a further 10 minute drive to the quaint, popular village of Qualicum. A 2 hour drive west through picturesque Port Alberni brings you to Tofino and the Pacific Coast. At the south end of the island, 2 hours away, Victoria beckons with all the character and charm of an inviting English manor and offers everything of an urban, modern city. And don't forget, 90 minutes north is the world famous Mt. Washington ski resort with alpine and downhill skiing, snowboarding, tubing, sunshine and powder-topped runs in winter and hiking & biking trails in summer.


You can relax in our quiet, secure neighbourhood nestled in between ocean and tranquil forest enjoying the peaceful ambience of coastal living. Our 2100 sq. ft. oceanview home is set on 1/2 acre overlooking spectacular Georgia Strait, Sunshine Coast and mainland mountains from several rooms in the house. Custom built in 1996 we have recently installed hardwood flooring in the living room and dining room at the front of our home and new carpet in the hallway and 2 bedrooms in the back, with tile in the 3 piece bath. The open concept has a centrally located fully equipped kitchen open to both the living and dining rooms, an ocean and mountain view patio off the dining room with a seating area close to the BBQ for the outdoor cooking enthusiast. We have several unique amenities including 2 cozy rooftop decks, vaulted ceiling in the living room, etched glass windows overlooking the living room from the upper floor master bedroom, skylit sunroom for bright, warmth in the morning sunrise and much more. The living room woodstove (with full wood shed) is our secondary source of heat and on a chilly day you can gather around and watch the storms roll in while enjoying the quiet and relaxing atmosphere of our beautiful home or catch up on your favourite show on our 40' flatscreen satelitte HD TV. We offer basic cable with Apple TV so for any Netflix and/or iTunes users you can continue to watch your favourite shows and access hundreds of movies.

Each of our 3 bedrooms has a queen bed with ample closet space and the master bedroom features a walk-in closet, a free standing shower stall and a double jacuzzi tub. The mainlevel laundry room has full size freezer, washer and dryer and is steps to the back yard with a 100' clothesline for our environmentally aware quests to use on those wonderful, sunny days. The fully fenced back yard is very quiet and private with a sitting area and is the access to our newly finished detached fitness studio complete with weights, weightbench, 2 bikes and floor/yoga mats.


Our home borders on a large green space (just forest and trails behind us) and is adjacent to the world class Fairwinds Resort with year round golf and activities. We are a short walk to a seculded beach and nearby there is a community mall with a grocery store, movie rental location, health food store, restaurant, hairdresser and more. Activities in the area include beach combing, lots and lots of hiking, biking, swimmining, diving, fishing, tennis, marina and abundant wildlife viewing of bald eagles, deer, sea lions and the list goes on.


We have off-street parking available. As non-smokers ourselves, we will rent only to non-smokers. Also we have no pets so no pets are allowed.

Treat yourself to a taste of paradise where you can be as busy as you would like or revel in the absolute pleasure of both our home and the magnificent lifestyle that goes along with beautiful Nanoose Bay and central Vancouver Island.

                          Miles of fabulous walking and hiking trails at our doorstep, great central location offers easy access to all points on Vancouver Island. We are 'islanders' with personal knowledge of island locations so we can give you tips on little known gems and 'must see' and 'must do' activities.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          About the owner: Wayne and Donna, recently retired, are beginning to fulfill a lifetime dream of travelling the world. We are outdoor enthusiasts and found the Nanoose Bay area to be perfect to explore all that Vancouver Island has to offer. Now that we are travelling further afield we are thrilled to share our little piece of paradise so that others can appreciate the beauty and opportunities of coastal living. Both our fathers were in the Canadian Air Force and finished their careers in the Comox Valley. Our love of travel was ingrained in each of us at an early age. We met in high school and started our careers in Fort St. John, northern British Columbia. As soon as possible we moved back 'home' to island soil and have lived here exploring, camping, hiking and instilling in our 2 children an appreciation of the great outdoors. We are an active family that enjoys sports, family get togethers and sharing our island with others.

                          Why the Owner Chose Nanoose Bay:
                          Our love of kayaking, hiking, biking and being outdoors drew us to this location. With the temperate, drier climate than other island locations we are able to pursue our activities year round.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Out our back door you can access miles of trails through a forested area, past Enos Lake, that wildlife call home. Bald eagles, owls, racoons and deer abound and photo opportunities are endless. Our home is on a deer feeding path so you are guaranteed to witness these gentle creatures daily in their own habitat. Out our front door you are less than a five minute stroll to a secluded beach. This offers you the chance for a refreshing summer dip or to launch your kayak or canoe or to cast off and try to catch your supper. Evenings sitting down at the beach enjoying a glass of local wine are magical as the sky grows pink and you watch mother nature at her finest.
