Qualicum Beach house description

This lovely suite is situated on the ground floor of our home on a long sandy beach with views of Texada, Lasquiti and Hornby Islands. Great for a walk while enjoying the salt air. Or, get out your fishing rod and enjoy fishing on what is arguably the best fishing beach in the area. Arrowsmith Golf Course is five minutes away and we provide discount tickets on request for $25 each (reg $37) for 18 holes. Just 200 meters away is a pub with food and live music as well as another restaurant. An easy walk, no need to drive after enjoying a cool one.

The home having just been renovated is well appointed. Relax and enjoy the ocean, whatever the weather, from the cozy living room or while having breakfast at the dining room table.

The large kitchen is fully equipped with all appliances and a propane BBQ on the deck. Just bring your groceries. All three bedrooms feature queen size beds with quality new linens and pillows. The bathroom is completely renovated and includes towels.

This house has all the comforts of home including high speed wireless internet, TV, Cable, DVD, CD, Telephone (free calls Canada/USA), washer/dryer and a new wood airtight fireplace insert with wood supplied.

There is so much to do – walk or play botchi ball on the sandy beach, watch the wildlife, which includes seals, sea lions and eagles, go for a swim, or go fishing. Between Nile Creek and Big Qualicum River, this is one of the best fishing beaches on the coast. There are numerous golf courses within 5 to 30 minutes.

Great seafood abounds in this area and you can easily purchase fresh oysters from Fanny Bay Oysters or fresh scallops from Island Scallops. Locally caught fish are available at many stores. In the summer, there are various farmer’s markets (Courtenay, Qualicum Beach, Coombs Market) where you can buy amazing fresh produce. There is an excellent grocery store, coffee shop and a liquor store just 4 minutes drive.

There are great walking trails in the neighbourhood as well as many parks within 1 hours drive including: Horne Lake Provincial Park, Englishman Falls Provincial Park, Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park, Milner Gardens, Mount Washington and Cathedral Grove Provincial Park with its ancient trees.

Qualicum Bay is a magical place that will create outstanding holiday memories for you and your family.

For our clientele with allergies we have a no smoking and no pet policy.

          Why the Owner Chose Qualicum Beach:
          This is one of the most beautiful areas in British Columbia -- a province that is known for its scenery. The proximity to many of BC's most beautiful parks is amazing. It is truly a one of a kind magical place.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Great local music at the Crown and Anchor Pub. The Lighthouse Blue Grass Festival is the first weekend in July. It is a fisherman's paradise -- both ocean and freshwater. Fish are routinely caught on the beach in front of the house. There are numerous golf courses in the area.
